So, this is a hybrid watch, meaning that it looks just like a regular old-fashioned watch most of the time. It has three buttons on the side which you can program (and change whenever you'd like) on the accompanying app. I usually have mine set so that the top one shows you notifications, the middle one the date, and the bottom one turns on and off the music (or podcast, or whatever) that is playing on my phone. The way the notifications work is that you set it up, for example, so that the hands will point to 1 on the watch every time I get a notification from my wife. You can also include notifications from apps (I have different numbers set for ebay notifications, my doorbell app, other contacts, etc.). So, while there is no display to actually READ the notification, it will buzz your wrist every so often, you can see where the notification is coming from, and can then know whether or not you want to take out your phone. It does work well for turning on and off music (I ride a motorcycle, and it's particularly useful there), without having to scroll through screens on a real smart watch. You can also program the buttons to do things like finding your phone, or telling you when you will arrive at a saved destination (work, home).
I've gone to using the hybrids about 80% of the time, and using my "real" smart watches the rest. Your usage may vary, and it may be the relative novelty of these things that have hooked me. But I DO like the way the look way better than even my fancy Huawei watch (which is pretty styling), and I usually don't miss all the functionality of the true smart watches most of the time. However, if I'm working in my shop and don't want to have to take my phone out at all, I'll put on a true smart watch so I can actually see my notifications, etc.
I own (yes, I know) hybrids from Skagen (a division of Fossil), Timex, Emporio Armani, Chaps, and Fossil (these). These fossil commuters are the ones i like best, though all are pretty nice. They have a more substantial, slightly heavier feel than the Skagens, and the numbers and such are a bit more readable (though with my 50-something eyes, the date numbers are next to useless without glasses). The app is great and intuitive, and they just look great on my wrist (a normal to smallish man's wrist, I'd say). I have it in three different finishes, and the fourth is on the way!!!!
Hope this is helpful, and please like my review if, well, you liked it!
- Show in History (was off). I set it to On
- Show as Banners (was on, but set to Temporary) I set this to Permanent
Once I opened it all up, the text notifications started working on the Fossil watch.
Battery life is going strong. Still over 80% after a couple of months.
I've tried various app notifications and found some work well, some don't. For instance, I set my weather app thinking it would only go off for weather alerts. However, since the app continually shows the temperature in the notification bar of my phone, the watch went off every time the temperature changed. I didn't count that as a negative since the weather apps were designed specifically for use with this type of watch and Fossil obviously cannot design their app to work with every potential app available.
-No need to charge.
-Good looking watch. Smart watch
but looks like normal watch, that's
the beauty of hybrid.
- Pedo meter to count steps
-Sync once and the time works even if not synced later.
-Auto syncs to mobile time zone(Haven't tested yet).
-All functions works, my favorites
1) Find phone
3) Clock position set for different
4) Notification vibrations
5) 3 buttons in watch that can be
customized to do a particular
- Even though the strap is soft and good, the rear end has some edges near case opening which can be uncomfortable.
- The strap design is like unisex so I need to buy thick strap.
- Steps count is not in part with my mobile steps count they are off by few numbers but not sure which one is accurate. Not a great deal though.
- The watch may not be the one you can wear all day long in all conditions.
Overall good watch for the price.
