Fossil Men's Gen 5 Touchscreen Smartwatch with Speaker £149 Prime Exclusive Deal
Posted 13th Oct 2020

This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

Fossil Men's Gen 5 Touchscreen Smartwatch with Speaker, Heart Rate, GPS, NFC, and Smartphone Notifications

I know these have their issues, fans and detractors alike and the new gen is looming. But for £150 - i think it's a pretty solid deal. Free delivery with prime.
This is for the silicone version - the other versions are available but more expensive.

Bargain!! These are absolutely brilliant apart from the middle button that you end up pressing every time you put your hand down flat.

Fossil has implemented sleep tracking now which is great and battery life is way better than the 4th gen.

Why is it so hard to plonk it on the charger next to your bed as you sleep?

Just don’t like taking it on and off all the time and I forget to put it back on
Great price for this model which along with the Skagen Falster 3 is the best Google WareOS smartwatch you can currently get. Previous gen's battery life and lag issues have been resolved and it's a stylish beast for modest outlay.

Sleep on your back with the charger connected to your wrist.
TicWatch Pro 2020 at £138 for Prime Day is an even better deal IMO.

It's physically stronger but not better, this has better internals, including the faster CPU.
I bought one, looking forward to using Google Pay on a watch. I think the Fossil watches look nicer than the Ticwatches, but it's a close-run thing.

Kind of cancels out the excitement of them adding a sleep tracker though.

I have mine with Always On Display, Tilt to Wake turned off, Voice Activation off (a long press of the crown brings up Assitant) WiFi off, BT to turn off at 11pm and come back on at 7am.
I can get around 2 days out of it. I just put it on quick 10-30 Minute charge before bed.

My GF uses it all the time. A double press the top button brings up Google Pay.
Be aware that this model still has the charging ring flaw. I had 2 gen 4s and 1 gen 5, all charging rings eventually falling out within a year of owning the watches due to the poor design of glueing them in. Heat + magnet is a bad combo...

On the plus side, Amazon's customer service was great at giving a full refund.

If you don't need the Google Pay functionality and want a more fitness orientated watch the Huawei GT2 range would give you 7-8days no sweat

Does it then require faffing with a passcode/pattern? Thanks!

I don't use the NFC but 2 Days is enough battery life for me. And in worst case scenario I can always put it in Timepiece only mode.

I use a lot of Apps on the watch, Accuweather for the 1Hr Minutecast, so I know if it might rain or not, Deezer for starting playing music to Chromecast devices, Hue Essentials for controlling thr lights, IFTTT for various reminders and smart home control (Netatmo heating settings).

If I decide on a longer battery watch I'm going for the Amazfit Neo, I currently have 4 spare WearOS devices too, so I can switch between them but my Gen5 is my only one with HRM.

You need to enter your 6 digit passcode once after charging , after that it will detect it's still been on your body and not need it.
