- 100% charge at 6 A.M by 10 A.M battery percentage is 20% with out touching it .
Being a Fossil, it's a beautiful watch of course. It's comfortable, somewhat light, and no bulkier than a regular watch. The faces Fossil provides are cool as well.
For those wondering about battery life, if you have any experience with Wear OS (Android) watches you'll know that it takes a few days to a week for battery life to stabilize. Any watch I've bought, including this one, took about 3 days. Going from having ~50% at the end of the day to having ~70%.
Amount of usage matters though.
-Fossil knows how to make a well designed watch.
-Accurately tracks activities, even on running on the treadmill.
-Having the HR sensor, NFC, and GPS built-in makes for full use of Wear OS. All watches should implement this hardware.
-Buttons and crown have more of a click feel compared to Gen 3
-Vibration for notifications feels strong.
-Swim proof. Gen 3 was just water resistant.
-Wear OS is improving a lot. It's a very good watch, but it's no Apple Watch (this is Google's fault).
-Still uses the old Qualcomm 2100 Wear processor.
-No speaker compared to the last generation.
-Some people will never be satisfied with battery life.
If you like the leather/silicone hybrid band Fossil offers but don't want to pay the price for it, I bought this one. Looks similar and nearly half the price.
This upgraded to Wear OS (2.0) right on initial startup/config. Had no issues setting up. This does not have the bluetooth issues like i've experienced with my other watches, once connected it stays connected, no dropping and giving me the lovely not connected cloud. NFC for Google Pay is fun to use - cashiers get so thoroughly confused when I tap the watch to the terminal and "boop-paid". LOL Still need the phone in my pocket, but nothing needs to come out of my pockets to pay!
The heart rate monitor/sensor on this initially gave me concern as it protrudes out the back of the watch like a little bubble, but after wearing it, I don't notice it at all. Seems accurate to.
The charging "cradle" is little and magnetized, and can have the watch put on it in direction as the charging contacts on the watch itself are actually 2 circles on the bottom. No more need to fiddle with a watch and charger to get the contacts perfectly aligned before it charges.
Now the battery life. The reviewer that says it sucks and only lasted 2 hours (or was it 4?) needs to learn to troubleshoot or change the settings or stop playing games on it so much. If you are leaving the screen on with no ambient mode the battery will go faster. If you have a data hungry or very animated watchface, the battery will go sooner.If you have your heart rate monitor taking a reading every 30 seconds ..... I think you get it.
I like relatively minimum faces with only a few data points displayed and I have it go into ambient mode with "shake to wake" disabled. With my other watches, I get a good 14 to sometimes 20 hours out of them between charges. Not this one. I typically am at 15% after 12 hours. If I use a weather face, or fit face, forgettabout it, 8 hours.
Turn off "always on screen", minimal face with minimal data points and MAYBE I can squeak it to 14 hours.
For this size watch, they could have easily had the room for a larger battery.
I find this as not an everyday watch, definitely not a workout watch, but more of maybe an office watch or night on the town watch. Fix the battery issue and it can be an all day one, but still not a rough and tumble kind.
But, and it's a very, very big but: the battery life is absolutely abysmal! I had to charge the watch twice a day which isn't practical for me. I only wore it about 4 days. The final straw was that it died in the middle of the day with no warning.
I was hopeful despite the reviews, but it's simply not worth it.
