Guys is this any good for a Samsung phone, for a teenager. It’s down from £249

Top features:

- Impressive design with full touchscreen display

- Smartphone connection expands what the watch can do

- Fitness tracking helps you stay motivated for workouts

- Downloadable apps and contactless payments

Impressive design

The whole face of the Fossil Explorist FTW4016 Smartwatch is a touchscreen display, so you can customize the dials and reach your most used features with a single tap. The strap and watch face are interchangeable too, so you can mix it up to match your style.

Smartphone connection

Sync the Fossil Explorist HR to your smartphone with Bluetooth to receive notifications for texts, calls, emails, and apps straight to your wrist. With a simple “OK Google”, you can ask about the weather, set a reminder, get directions with GPS capability, and much more. While travelling, it’ll automatically update to match whatever time zone you find yourself in, so you’re always on time.

The Explorist HR is also NFC compatible, so with GooglePay you only need to touch your watch to a card reader to instantly pay for your petrol or pick up the bill.

Fitness tracking

Get the most out of your workouts. Using GPS you can track your speed and distance, and your heart rate will also show on the screen for extra motivation. The Explorist is also swim-proof, so every workout is recorded accurately whether you’re in the gym or the pool.

Downloadable apps

You can download apps directly onto the Fossil FTW4016. This really opens up what the Explorist can do - control your music, find somewhere to eat, or just play a game.

Don’t reach for your wallet when you need to make a payment. Just wave your smart watch over the card machine, and the Fossil will make the payment just like a contactless card.

I don't have one, but going by reviews the battery life on these is poor. Would also need to confirm if Gen 4 (newer) , or Gen 3. Those rascals at Currys might be selling old stock
As previous poster mentions battery life is so short. Huawei or Honor Smartwatches are some of the longest life battery life watches typically 2 weeks per charge. My Son got fed up with his Apple watch due to charging everyday so save the agro and look elsewhere rather than purchase this one,

Thanks to both yeah reading the reviews battery is terrible. Can anybody suggest me a decent one. Was looking at Fitbit Versa 2 - on amazon the grey one is 159, that was posted here and it’s cold in voting don’t understand why as it’s usually £200 right.
Very nearly bit the bullet on this one, but every review mentions the battery being atrocious. Pass.
I have this model....gen 4 and if you switch off "tilt to wake" mine will last a day and a half with normal use. Overall a nice watch and always get compliments on it

I have a versa 2. Decent all round watch, great for sleep tracking, heart rate, screen and the Fitbit app.
Battery lasts around 4-5 days which is decent.
But....I bought a new sealed one from Facebook market for £90. I wouldn't pay £159 tbh.

Facebook market place is just a gumtree type private selling area.

For £100+ I would take a look at the amazfit GTR or GTS maybe ?!
Super good value if buying the global versions from AliExpress etc.

Depends which features you want really.... Battery for example.... My Huawei GT gets two weeks !! Now selling as switched to the versa 2
Bought the Versa 2 for my wife for around £70 form ebay (the main unit) plus charger and strap separately. All together £90.
Or Watch GT also new from the ebay £90 (it was for me)

What is the case made from? I notice a lot of fossil sport owners complaining of the bit that anchors the strap snapping off because the plastic is so thin.

Wow you'd have to be giving it some serious abuse for the strap attachment to break. It's a solid watch and well made. Looks really really classy and like I said always get compliments. Also looks like a standard watch unlike some of these black generic models. For me it's a geat piece.
Cheers for that ☝🏾. I think it's just simple drops...if it hits the corner, it snaps off - happened to my girlfriend's then noticed that it happened to a few other people too
Get the Fossil sport its £89 from Fossil, its newer and with a better processor.
Would recommend a Samsung Galaxy watch over one of these for similar money. I have a 2019 S3 and the battery lasts 5 days no prblem at all.

S3 watches are £200+?
Are they still? I paid £150 a year ago (overseas mind you from Singapore). Came delivered sealed and UK plug.

LINKY

I thought the price would be cheaper given the S4 is out.
Eglobal dong have any and Yeo all am seeing £200 +
Can't seem to see it anywhere on the listing but to anybody considering wear OS.. Make sure you only buy if has at least 1 gig of ram. 500mb ram watches are a laggy mess and it ruins the entire experience

Gen 5 is the newest one with way better battery and specs.
