Review Fossil Gen 5 Smartwatch Galaxy Smasher?


the fresh new fossil generation 5 SmartWatch is one of the more premium wear s devices you’ll find in 2019 back in all of the features you’d expect to take on the likes of Samsung’s Galaxy watch this generation 5 model boasts all kinds of upgrades of good a fresh new battery mode a built-in speaker and of course boosted specs but is it an essential wrist accessory well I’ve had it slapped on my feet just over a week now and here is my full in-depth fossil generation 5 SmartWatch review and from one on its two greatest tech please do poke subscribe and ding that notifications bell Cheers so the fossil watch sports a 44 millimeter case made of stainless steel and so far it is proven a proper tuffnut haven’t lost any scratches or chips even though I’ve been smacking my arms off of walls and generally treating the thing with total disrespect it’s been non damage to that screen either which is definitely good to see and the watch is water resistant to a depth of 3 atmospheres or around 30 meters you can leave it on when you do you bet

snorkeling or whatever you in grab the generation 5 fossil and a small number of different colors and designs and I quite like this simple black bottle it’s quite sleek quite elegant and reasonably slender as well I know that my dainty little child wrists make it lock rather massive but believe me this is definitely more compact ones that I reviewed recently there’s still a decent heft to it however and it isn’t quite perfect the screen doesn’t seamlessly melt into the chassis for instance so you’ve got this narrow Ridge which is basically a haven for dust and annoying you really have to get in there with your fingernails to dig it all out fun times my review model came with a basic silicone strap quite good if you’re going to get your fitness on the garb of course you can swap it for any standard 22 mil band roller easily seeing stuff on a leather one if you’re gonna have a bit of a night out the tan something like that fossils 1.3 inch AMOLED display it doesn’t appear to have changed it all over the fossil generation 4 model it’s once again perfectly crisp for even tiny text and those colors are quite punchy as well run the maximum brightness levels with the sunshine boost feature enabled you can generally make out everything that’s going on even on quite a sunshiny day however the likes the always-on display you’ve got no chance once it starts getting bright out so that’s a bit of a shame it’s not quite as bright as some rivals such as the Apple watch but it’s not bad to be

honest now Google’s where OS has involved quite a bit in recent times and it is perfectly enjoyable here on the fossil Gen 5 for a closer look you can have a gander at my unboxing and fold tour but all of the features that you’d expect on and correct you’ve got Wi-Fi built into the Gen 5 ear so you can download new apps without tethering up to your phone as well as a massive selection of watch faces as well and there is a good variety already there on the watch from functional Affairs to more stylish efforts and you also have a spot of NFC support for some google pee action and you’ve got a bit of built-in GPS there as well so again these are two tethered to your phone if you go out for a bit of a run if that’s your bag Fitness fans are of course well catered for with the usual tracking apps and a hot room monitor that can keep tabs on your post 24 hours of deer and you’ve got support for a massive selection of activities and workouts to everything from kites Earvin to Cal stiff calisthenics which means to be waving your arms around like a Mentalist if anyone knows what calisthenics is let us know down below on the side of the fossil Gen 5 SmartWatch you’ll find three physical buttons which cut out a fair distance the middle one is used to bring up your apps menu while the other two can be customized to load

whatever you like definitely a very welcomed shortcut if there’s an app or two that you use over and over there’s also now a proper built-in speaker housed right here on the left edge which is great news if you want to actually get proper feedback from the Google assistant if you want to take a phone call on your watch for whatever reason or if you just want to hear the thing chirp whenever you get a notification pop through that is however quite tinny and a bit crackly as well not too surprising given the watch’s tiny size and of course the fact that it’s got a fully water resistant design as well thankfully have not any issues with clarity or anything allowed the only slightly annoying thing is that you see it up too weak for watch before you see it okay Google or was it didn’t seem to recognize it okay Google it was Boris Johnson okay Google just just stopped us too depressing one of the other new features here on the gen 5 is the extended battery mode which joins the existent daily and time only settings this it’s neatly in between the two offered basics much functionality including notification alerts while killing many of the other features that you probably won’t need turned on all of the time the likes of GPS NFC wrist awake gesture support and even voice activation and not always on the split or all unfortunately acts in this

voloomed office just too much of a sacrifice for me especially like the wrists weak gestures because I don’t always have two hands-free and I like to have that always on display so I need to check out what the time is without havin to wake the damn thing and so I mostly just stuck with the custom battery modes a battery life unfortunately still ain’t too hot here on the gem 5 with all of those main features enabled you’ll just about make it through a full dear if you don’t have other apps or really use it for much of the fitness stuff and without extended mode activate that I found that I still only got about a day and a half of life out of the gen 5 charts are still not amazing I would say if battery life is a major factor for you maybe look at something like the Women’s Steel HR instead if I think you could get about a month of life on a single charge and it’s got all of the full SmartWatch functionality built in as for performance well the fossil Gen 5 is one of the best around a stuffed dragon where 3100 chipset powers the watch backed by a full gig of ram and that means smooth sailin no matter what you’re up to the only issue I’ve spotted is that some messages take a couple of seconds to clear when you archive them and you also get 8 gigabytes of storage packed into this thing as well double the previous generation so plenty of space for your apps and whatnot so after living with the generation 5 fossil watch for over a week is it worthy of a spot on your wrist well I definitely like it despite that limited battery life you get all the features you could possibly hope for all presented in a sleek and slender still is still chassis that’s what I reckon but are you tempted by the fossil generation Fiverr is some other funky that smartwatch out there caught your eye instead obviously one of the biggest rivals is the samsung galaxy what’s will be gritter your thoughts on how it compares to that and if one the latest greatest tech please do poke subscribe and do not notifications about Cheers
