Review Fossil Gen 6 Two weeks later Best WearOS Smartwatch?


so it’s been a proper bloody large-hearted month for smart watches we’ve had new opens from the likes for moras fate samsung tic watch even that apple plenty and now it’s the turn of fossil with its fresh new generation six watch and the gen six is just as premium as the rest of them beginning at 279 quid depending on whether you demand a silicon skin or metal bangle but is it actually worth that currency well i’ve had it slapped on my weapon for the last couple of weeks to bring you this full in-depth fossil gen 6 review and for more on the lit write floor satisfy do protrude subscribe and hitting that notifications bell ovations now you got a choice of only one width with the gen 6 a 44 millimeter lawsuit and a standard 22 mil fasten and i learnt this was a good sizing for my weedy little school child wrists it’s certainly not ponderous although it’s not quite as refreshingly slim as that fresh new galaxy watch 4.

You’ve got an affecting reach of schemes to choose from with the relic gen 6 as usual it’s definitely one of the best features of the fossil smart watches i’m not just talking about the color of the case in here i’m too talking about the style of the actual bezel i mean you can even encrust this thing with minuscule crystals if that’s if that’s what you want to do you’ve also got a very respectable range of fastens and circles to choose from as well including a full-on metal bracelet if that’s your container although gotta say this thing was utterly freaking big it was dangling off my appendage when i tried it on first i could have actually probably worked it as a loop i did try and resize it by popping out got a couple of those relates managed to get one or two out but then i really struggled to get some out on the other side to offset it out uh probably not helped by the fact that i wasn’t employing the suitable tools “yeah using one of these little telephone sim tray porky pin things the fossil gen 6 is water resistant to 3 skies and i really like how the screen glass seems to be incredibly thin but also impressively durable that bezel doesn’t really render any kind of protection at all to the display so of course

i’ve tweeted this screen off every kind of hard-handed surfaces generally after a couple of shandy’s and a couple of epoches kind of on purpose only to give it a proper soundnes testing and uh so far touchwood no scratching or belittles to speak of at all it’s still absolutely pristine and speaking of that colorful 1.2 inch amoled presentation i am obviously a fan it may be quite compact and that pitch-black bezel surrounding it is rather thick but verse and visuals are pin sharp-worded thanks to the 416 by 416 pixel solving yielded 326 pixels per inch purity it’s bright enough for clear visibility outdoors and as it is an oled board you of course get all the usual always on display shenanigans nonetheless imagine if you will that the fogy gen 6 was actually a guilty looking puppy baby-sit next to a steam and turd freshly laid on your best carpet in this slightly awkward metaphor the pooh in question would be wear os version 2 which comes pre-installed on the fogy gen 6 instead of the fresh new wearaos 3 which we also on the samsung galaxy watch 4 streaks apparently google has still been very protective of the latest where it’s just the samsung smartwatches where you can find it for now but hopefully uh repository copy 3 will be coming to other small-minded watches like the fogy gen 6 in early 2022 although there’s no real strict timeline just yet to be fair though trusty old wear os is still perfectly fine now on the fogy you can fully customize your tiles as usual so your most valued information is available with exactly a quick swipe

and when you’re zipping around through all the menus and all the rest of it that ui feels smoother than a dollop of gentleman thanks to the snapdragon where 4100 plus chipset which leads the indicate still one of the most powerful wearable chips around which is used by remarkably few other smartwatches that likes the brand-new ticking watch which just got launched last week and that’s about it fossil has chucked in a respectable variety of watch faces now with correspondent ever on displays plus there’s also a big pick likewise available to download from google frisk or the pre-installed faces work as well if you want to change up the sound and the vibe these often come with customizable aspects as well so you can fully configure them to get them really the practice you crave them and of course as usual you can fully customize which notifications you receive a little buzz on the wrist with the relic gen 6 with the ability to respond right there on that dinky screen for certain apps like gmail you can actually type out your response on a minuscule little keyboard that works amazingly better than it

should do or alternatively you are eligible to precisely use your expres to reply as well or if it’s just a lot of spammy drivel you are eligible to merely straight up delete it right there on your wrist that touchscreen has been demonstrated perfectly responsive while the rotate dial can also be used to scroll up and down through your menus and apps and whatnot it’s not quite as cozy as samsung’s revolve bezel on the watch 4 classic but it employments just fine and yeah there’s certainly no lack of buttons here on the relic gen 6 either that dial is likely to be pushed in to brought forward by a roster of your set apps with quite a few chucked on here to begin with including the usual fitness tracking tries timers frights and even the handwashing app if you still need help with that and as ever you can download more apps via google participate exerting the watch’s built-in wi-fi support you’ve got eight gigs of storage here same as the samsung galaxy watch for which might not chime a lot but bear in mind the most wearable apps are utterly tiny meanwhile the top and posterior buttons on the fossil gen 6 can be assigned to anything you like although i stuck with google

pier for the bottom one and this was obviously actually one of my favorite aspects of the fossil watch gen 6 compared with samsung’s galaxy watch 4 endeavours the facts of the case you’ve actually came google works flowing by default rather than samsung’s own alternatives so if you find that you use the likes of google fit google pair etc then the fossil gen 6 is definitely the one for you the gen 6 like most payment smart watches has a built-in speaker and mic and you can use these to make and take calls via your smartphone as long as you don’t mind parties giving you weird sideways gazes as you walk past them down the street chatting at your own arm of course and you can also use that speaker and mic to interact with the google assistant you’ve got full google supporting if you want to wake the auxiliary with your voice otherwise you can simply mostly swipe to the right and then tap the little mic there where is southern football club in the organization one table sunderland are in fourth sit in football conference one with a total of 22 items i thought we were higher than that the football was aside at least you can hear the speaker is nice and loud and clear something considering the size of the thing i didn’t have any trouble you know hearing it even on a hectic high-flown street or whatever and the mic again even in quite a noisy environment does a pretty good job of picking up your voice and

understanding what you’re trying to tell it to do and too apparently at some target in the near future fossil will be bringing amazon alexa support to the gen 6 as well in case you prefer that to the google assistant now one boast that i did miss now on the fossil gen 6 was facsimile music across to stream to your bluetooth headphones when you don’t have your phone on you i personally didn’t miss it a massive sum because i don’t precisely devote much time you know down the gym pounding the forces or whatever it is you actually do to to loads or you know doing a bit of jogging or anything like that so if you are looking to go out with your relic watch leave your phone at home and listen to music at the same time well you should out of luck and speaking of exercise type stuff that fit parties do the fogy gen 6 may not be as perfectly boasted as a dedicated goldman watch for instance but you do get all the usual casual 24 7 moving including heart rate and sp02 evaluations you’ve got daily step weigh all that good nonsense for exercise moving i’m principally precisely stay with google fit which again is fine for just sort of continuing close invoices on your stats no matter what kind of thing you’re like doing to get the age-old ticker racing and if you don’t exert google fit the nike raced organization app too comes installed on here and you’ve got plenty of other options over there on the google play store like most premium watches you’ve got semi-dependable gps built in handy for tracking your

routes or just for a bit of google maps act when you’re following tendencies there’s also a bit of sleep moving as standard as well you can actually set up your own sleep destinations my own personal sleep goal is basically merely to actually get some sleep instead of lying there on my back wide awake at 3am staring up at the ceiling and worrying about all the many many practices that the world will probably implode and take me with it obviously a big take for that one nonetheless i gotta say i did find myself having to charge up the fossil gen six each night rather than actually leaving on my wrist for the sleep moving because i spotted it would just about last a full period from the moment i overwhelmed out of bunked to the moment i floundered back into bed at the end of a very long day and of course yeah i was using the relic gen 6 quite a lot uh in epoch to day help simply to perfectly test it out i had all the features enabled like the always on display the nfc for contactless remittances or the 24 7 tracking i found that even when i turned a lot of that trash off it didn’t prepare fairly of a artillery saving i would be able to stretch it through got a couple of dates the gen 6 does power up to 80 in time half an hour at the charge so you can potentially get it plugged in in the morning instead of overnight but after 80 it does a percolate indictment all the way up to

full and it makes the best part of an hour to reach that full accuse and as i say if you are going to be using the gen 6 you are well aware quite regularly lots of notifications and all that stuff as well uh then you’re definitely going to want to have it at full charge before you you know start a day if you wishes to better smaller life than that something that lasts you through a full busy weekend for example without having to worry about taking charges with you on the go and then i obviously moment you at the new ticwatch pro 3 ultra gps which i i am only covered here on textbook last week that’s got a nifty dual screen motif that does help to prolong that battery life to an extra sort of d or two so that regardles in a nutshell is the fresh new relic gen six smartwatch uh available now for 279 quid or a little bit more if you fancy that metal bangle war only get a proper tool kit to resize it and i gotta say i did experience having it slammed now on my appendage i really like the fact you’ve got those google works by default rather than samsung’s tries uh but apart from that of course it does suffer from a lot of the same flaws as that galaxy watch for including the fact that the battery life just really isn’t particularly stupendous but what do you calculate about the gen 6 are you invited by it or maybe you’ve been using it yourself it’d be great to your thoughts down in the comments below delight do thrusting subscribe and ding that notifications bell for more on the latest and greatest deck including bugger loads of small-time watches a lot of them reviewed in the last few weeks and i’ve got more coming up i’m gonna update my best smartwatch’s guide soon as well because there’s been so bloody numerous and have yourselves a lovely rest of the week glees everyone love you
