  • Very cool watch

    I have this watch for almost a year and I'm amazed everyday i wear it Lots of very convenient features, not all usefull but still very convenient, Works perfectly with my phone and the battery can last easily 2 days and lots more if not used. I get a lot of good comments on it, The only negative thing i can say, is that it will often activate for nothing when i fold my wrist upwards


  • Nice looking watch nothing more

    the best looking smarth watch that i could find, but im very disapointed, everything it does, it does it half way, example: google map, give you your location and nothing more, cant get derection. and that it if the app does not crash. Same thing for spotify, crash 75% off the time. I will return it to the store. Very disapointed, i realy love the lock of this watch but simply does not deliver.

    Really liked the look of this watch. The service at Bestbuy and then the Fossil store (to remove links) was excellent! It is to bad it did not work well. The initial install/setup of the watch was quite rough. It crashed a few times upgrading the OS. Then the battery lasted only between 1/4 to 1/2 a day. It started to respond very slowly. I got up one morning to find it in a continuous loop of what look like a data restore? It never recovered...like that for 6+ hours. So I returned it. Going to look at a different brand. So wanted it to work out.
