Good price, avoid at all costs if you are an iOS user though. Was advertised as the first Wear OS watch go be fully integrated with iOS but does not connect at all on anything other than iOS 13.0 (not .1 .2 .3 etc). Been stuck with a “dumb” watch that only tells the time and requires charge every night for months just because I hate square watches and wouldn’t go for an Apple Watch .

Other than that, it is a pretty snappy and stylish watch and call quality and stuff are good when it works.

Also if you’re into fitness then make sure you go for something else as Google Fit has literally no fitness information at all other than a few step counts and distance.

I wouldn't recommend it to use with iOS either but thanks for you valuable input. Wear OS have a lot to improve with Android devices to start with, however this watch have the latest Wear OS and according to the community is much more stable than previous versions.
One of the main reasons I'm choosing this smartwatch is because it looks like a real watch and looks stylish as you say, actually is identical to the regular Fossil watch.
Thanks for the tip regarding the useless Google Fit but to be honest I'm not fitness guy myself. If I was into fitness I would reconsider this watch because of the battery life being limited (20-30 hours) when compared, for example, to Huawei Watch GT2 (2 week battery life).

The design is the main reason I went for this one as well. I got the dark silver one and bought a stainless steel loop in the same colour on Amazon and overall it’s a great looking watch.

The biggest tip I would give you is to disable tilt to wake and enable always on display instead which literally doubles the battery life and can last a day and a half (with tilt to wake it doesn’t last a full day)
Probably the best WearOS watch out there.
Had the gen 4 and was laggy and the buttons felt cheap, i think its more android wear. Id recommend the Samsung watches

The gen 4 is garbage in comparison in all fairness. The difference between 512mb in the gen 4 and 1gb of RAM in the gen 5 is night and day
Voted hot. But would this not get cheaper on Black Friday? Looking to pick one up.

BLACK STAINLESS STEEL version not included.

I have one of these, watch out for build quality issues. Mine is back with Fossil for repair (hopefully replacement) as it stopped charging. The issue appears to be charging rings on the back of the watch - which apparently is an issue that has been going on since Gen4 days
Back up at £279…?
Black is cheaper than this now and stainless even cheaper!
I mean cheaper than brown but still more than the price it was.

Thanks for the useful tip @koparanov ! Does the stainless steel you got fits well this watch? I'm thinking about getting one but I can't find the official one.

Depends what colour you got. It was almost impossible to find a magnetic stainless steel one for my model as I got the dark silver version and I thought the steel one that came with mine felt a bit light and cheap. I really wish thwy did a normal light steel colour and not this dark one. I’m not sure what options there are for the black version though but I think Fossil don’t do any official steel ones.

I got this one for my silver model:

I wonder if you can use the 15% on top of the black Friday sale price?
