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.

Classic look and simple to use

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.

Much faster than gen 4
Rating: 5
I've been wearing fossil smart watches for 1.5 years and a hybrid smart watch for 2 years before that. I really liked the gen 4 and it was a difficult choice actually upgrading. The 5 is so much faster than the 4, that alone os worth the upgrade. The screen is slightly smaller, which was a little bit of a let down, but the case is also not as tall on my wrist, which is awesome. Overall, after almost a month, I'm very happy with the size, it gets knocked accidentally much less. I was expecting more changes to the sleep screen with the new chipset, and I was expecting a revolutionary change for the battery, based on the presser for the 3100 i read. In reality, i suppose i get about 7 more hours, so i wear it while I'm sleeping right now (to monitor my heart rate for fun). The speaker, is....much more awesome than i thought it'd be. Over all, solid product. Fossil watches are just gorgeous and i get compliments on it alot.

Solid Smartwatch
Rating: 5
As an iPhone user, I was looking for an alternative to the Apple Watch (I don't really care for the square look). This is an excellent watch that looks and feels amazing! It does all of what I need it to, aside from sending text messages directly from the watch. Not really a that big of a deal. I was concerned about battery life, but I've been getting about a 1.5 days with regular use on extended mode (checking texts, Google Fit, Spotify, etc.) Using Spotify and Strava during a marathon, it died after 5.5 hours (I guess I just need to run faster next time ). The display is beautiful. The interface is smooth and quick. For my first smartwatch, I'm very impressed with all the features that it offers.

Gen 5 with double memory vs last year's is only way to go
Rating: 5
I own the Gen 4 venture and it was a great smart watch but you could definitely tell it didn't have enough memory. It would lag and be unresponsive frequently. Since upgrading to the Gen 5 the difference is amazing. Plus the option to answer a phone call on the watch is a cool feature to have included as well. The battery lasts me all day for what I do. Which is usually just checking the time and doing a 30 minute exercise. I usually go to bed with about 25 to 50% battery left. People who complain that it is not good on battery on the first day they own it need to make sure they run all the updates for the system and Google play. After the initial setup the battery will start to show it's true usage.

The best WearOS smartwatch
Rating: 4
This is my 3rd Fossil smartwatch (4th smartwatch in total) and it is the best one yet. I've only used this with Android phones but it works very well. The reason for only 4 stars and not 5 is for two reasons: First minor reason, I prefer the look of the Gen 3 watches but that's just personal preference. The main reason for dropping a star is that I have had this for only a few weeks now and the dark metal color is starting to wear off on the bottom side of the strap, I assume where it rubs on my desk at work (see image where you can see it wearing off the clasp and some of the links). Having previously only own stainless-steel colored bands, which is not available for this Gen, I don't know if this has been a common issue for previous years where the smoke color was available. But it is disappointing to having this issue on a quality product after such a short time.

After five different fossil watches in the past 18 months...
Rating: 1
I cannot recommend them any longer. The charging rings come loose on the back of the new models, just like the last generation . models as well. When the rings come loose, you can no longer charge the watch. I am on the third 5th generation watch. Fossil is kind enough to replace them under warranty...but not refund me. I would not buy a watch from Fossil. I wear mine for spin class, for work and around the house. Treat it gently, clean the back before charging it etc...and still, the rings come loose.

Band already has wear marks after a week
Rating: 1
Got this as a replacement to my earlier model that could not be repaired and constantly reset. Did not want this darker color for exactly the reason I rate it low. Smoke color has rubbed off the bottom within a week. Now it has shiny spots on it. Very disatisfied with the quality of the finish. Watch seems to function ok but definitely would not have bought it if I didn't have a credit from my previous Fossil smart watch that failed. Smoke color looks nice but is am epic fail for function
