I love this!!!
Rating: 5
I love this watch! From the second I saw it I fell in love! It is affordable and beautiful! It was glitching at first but once it fully updated and got set up I haven't had any issues! It works with my Android with no issues. The wear os app had a few options for the watch face but I didn't really like them. I was able to download an app on my phone that gave me access to a lot more options!

I have went from having the Apple Watch series 1 for four years and have made the switch over to this watch. I love it. I was getting so tired of the Apple Watch and the bulky square design. It was a small screen as well especially compared to this watch. I love how big and round the screen is on this one and I love the touchscreen of it!! Definitely way better than the Apple Watch. It's much cuter and dressier for work now and looks so much better with my outfits!

I had went without wearing a watch for 5 years and decided I wanted to start wearing one again. After researching and reading numerous reviews, I decided on this one. So far, I've had no problems with it. I don't have a need to use apps from the watch throughout the day, so battery life has not been an issue for me. (I was concerned about this from other reviews). It is comfortable to wear and I love the magnetic band. Classy, comfortable, and practical for my needs!

I love my fossil smartwatch!! I got the gen 4 silver mesh band with magnetic closure. Has gold around the face. So matches both my wedding sets. Still learning about the watch. I've had it 2 1/2 weeks.

Falling apart...literally
Rating: 2
I love this watch! It's gorgeous, but that's where it stops. I bought it last November and it is already falling apart. I wear it maybe 2-3x per week maximum. The backing had become unglued. Prior to this, the screen was freezing and I would have to restart it which is very annoying. I sent it in for repairs, we'll see where that goes.

FELL APART AFTER JUST 30 DAYS OF MINIMAL USE
Rating: 1
Purchased it for my wife on 12/2/2019, the back of the watch (charging plate) fell right off after less than 30 days of use. And to add insult to injury, although it is covered under warranty, one has to "request" a repair quote delaying the process of getting the watched shipped, repaired, and returned. We shall see how long this process takes. I have been recommending Fossil smartwatches since their arrival in the US, 3 of the 4 smartwatches in my family are Fossil Smartwatches...that will soon change. I should have gotten her an iWatch!

I would not buy this product, customer service is horrible.
Rating: 1
I have waited to post this review to see if my issues had been resolved. From the first day I got the watch, it would not connect with my phone. I contacted customer care to see what could be done, first of all, all responses take 24 hours, I have done a factory reset on my watch no less than 10 times. This has been a very frustrating process, now, they want me to send back my new watch for repair.

I would not buy this product and future generations
Rating: 1
Overall the apps and their connectivity is perfect. I enjoy how seamless was to connect my clock with the phone and the app and view my data. The hardware here is the problem. Who uses glue for a sport clock?? My clock fell apart in less than a year and I have been using it for 5 months everyday. They should not use glue for a clock that is supposed to be sport and that you can use to swim.

This watch gets cooler as you play with it!
Rating: 5
I had my eye on this watch since it came out but just recently pulled the trigger. I love the paperwhite background and how it displays messages. I also like how you can customize the display buttons. I was pumped when I found out that you can change the background! Then I realized that if you hold down the top button, the display bubbles disappear which is super neat. I was a little annoyed that I couldn't set one of the side buttons as a "find my phone" option, but just hold down the middle button and there it is, among other things!

Awesome! Fantastic! Better than I imagined.

You can turn off notifications and your alarms will still come through. There is a do not disturb that you can turn on and off on the watch. I love it! It's perfect. I get tons of alerts so I think the battery lasts maybe a week, but it totally out do's my apple watch. So happy with this purchase. Now I can see my sleep patterns. It helps me understand how the weather will effect my sleep.

So happy with this watch
Rating: 5
I wanted a watch that had a clock hand face but all the features of a smart watch. Fossil nailed it. This watch is so pretty and professional. I don't have any issues getting iMessages, so unsure if they fixed the software. It's super easy to change out the bands. Love this watch.

Screams "me"
Rating: 5
I love this watch so far. It has everything I need and nothing I don't. It has the look of an analog watch which I sorely missed with my old smart watch. It sends me notifications (spotty on the phone calls and texts) but I rarely am without my phone so it isn't a huge deal to me. This watch just screams my personality though and I think I tell my husband every day.

Keeps me from checking my phone, because of the minimal settings and display. Much for effective at work. Have emergency numbers And work set so I don't miss a call or text! Works okay with Apple phone, but connectivity from a distance could be better.

I'm so happy I found this beautiful watch!
Rating: 4
I recently purchased and returned a Samsung Active 2 watch. My issues with it - the battery would only last one day if you used the watch for anything other than just telling time. I also struggled to find a face that was pretty and looked like a real watch. I want to be able to look at my wrist and know what time it is without pushing any buttons. I love analog watches because they give more of a feeling of minutes as portions of hours - if you know what I mean. I was excited when I found that fossil made a smart watch with a real analog face. The reviews were good so I decided to give it a try. I'm glad I did. My favorite thing about this watch is that it is beautiful. I love the rose gold analog minimalist face. The paper white screen is lovely - making the watch more beautiful with the right background image. It looks like a beautiful watch instead of a smart watch. Sure it doesn't have nearly as many functions as the Samsung Active 2, but who really needs a calculator in a watch? You're never going to use that. This watch tracks my sleep, heart rate, steps, and other exercise functions. It tells me when I have a call and who's calling. It tells me when I have a text and lets me read it. I can decide then whether to get my phone out and answer the text or call. I am a RN and I can't be looking at my phone every time it alerts. It lets me control my music. It tells me what the weather is like. Another feature I like is the commute time. I use it on my way to work to see if I'm running on late or do I have time to stop for coffee? It's a lot easier and safer than using google maps. I haven't charged my watch for 10 days now and I still haven't gotten a low battery notification. With few exceptions it does everything a smart watch needs to do without all the noise of useless apps. My only complaint and the reason I took away one star - it has quick responses for missed telephone calls but they don't work on messenger.

I do wish it had a few more features but I do like the classic look and feel of this watch.

Once I got the hang of it...
Rating: 4
I received this product on a Tuesday evening and had no real issues setting it up, but learning how to do things (turn on the light, receive notifications, understand the apps involved, etc.) was extremely frustrating. No instructions, and the FAQs on the site are NOT helpful AT ALL (I'm old but not THAT old, I'm pretty techie actually). I did not receive any notifications for texts or phone calls no matter what I did. But, by the morning everything was in working order and I started to love the watch. I've had it 6 days and it's only glitched on me once when the weather was not showing so I rebooted my phone and it fixed it. I now LOVE this watch - it looks great, and I don't miss my Apple Watch at all. If you want some of the features of a smartwatch and want your wrist to look different from everyone else's, this is a great answer to that. I have had an Apple Watch for 3+ years (Gen 1 so maybe there are even more bells and whistles) and I rarely used the really cool bells and whistles like paying for things, or answering my texts - I'm a lefty but wear my watch on my left hand so trying to scribble the reply was awful and time consuming. I found myself only using my watch to tell time, track my steps/activity, see what the weather was, and track my heart rate. This watch takes care of all of it! I gave it 4 stars because of the frustrating set up only. Please consider including instructions or making the app for set up a bit more intuitive. Other than that I love it!!!

Don't buy this model! Strap failure, features missing
Rating: 1
I was so excited to get a sleek smartwatch, but was then incredibly disappointed. I purchased this model with the silicone strap, and two extra leather straps for other occasions. The silicone was by far the most comfortable. The leather straps very quickly cracked and showed wear from the buckle. I got the watch on April 24, 2020, and on May 25, 2020, the silicone strap ripped at the seam where the outer pink and inner gray meet. I've been working from home due to the COVID pandemic. This has gotten less than normal wear and tear. When I contacted Fossil, I was told straps are not covered under warranty. And spoiler alert: you CAN'T BUY THAT COLOR STRAP BY ITSELF. Very disappointing. The watch also DOES NOT have the "take a picture" function that every other Fossil smart watch has. Even my husbands 4 year old hybrid watch that is a genuine crystal movement (no display) has this feature. The back and forth I had with tech support on this issue was also disappointing. After telling them multiple times which model I had purchased, they still seemed to not understand the features of their own product. They were trying to direct me to menus that don't exist for my watch, etc. Maybe if you wanted to turn this into a pocket watch it would work, but as something that you want to wear on your wrist? Not worth it.
