Ratings and Reviews
I’m a bit old school, don’t really like the tech these days. Resistant, you could say. But I, like most, am leashed to my cell phone. With a family, and career. I need to be connected. I wanted a watch with hands and minutes and numbers like the old days. While shopping the fossil site. This watch caught my attention. Simply with classic style and primitive low key posture. Then as I read further I saw it was a smart watch! DANG, I thought.. I just wanted a plain classic watch. Well after getting it because of its beauty. I went ahead and paired it to my phone. WOW! I love it! It’s given me freedom I forgot we had. And the ‘Ring my phone” feature is BRILLIANT!!! For a busy guy like me, it’s been a fantastic distraction! I’ll never get stuck in an unwanted conversation again! “Oh, excuse me, I gotta take this call!” We’ll catch up later! Steve out!
Love this watch and this app!
I’ve had a hybrid smart watch of a different brand before (when they were but a twinkle in the eye of Fossil) and I must say, the Fossil hybrid smartwatch is a HUGE step up. The app works great for what it does. I never have a problem pairing my watch and it’s a breeze to link a contact or app to a number on my watch. I also LOVE that you can customize the buttons on your watch and save presets. That said, the watch itself works great too! There are a few features I wish were included:
- more detailed sleep tracking—it already tracks how much time is “restful sleep” and “light sleep” so why not show the times for both? That would be more useful data. This is the ONLY reason I took a star away from my rating, it’s important to me and I was expecting a little more.
- custom vibration patterns - let me choose a different vibration for each contact/app that is assigned a number. OR differentiate between calls and texts/notifications so I know how fast to get to the phone (ha)
- set a watch button function based on a combination of buttons, thereby adding more functions to the watch at a time. Right now, there are 4 functions I wish I had on my watch at all times and only 3 buttons. It would be nice if top + middle buttons pressed at same time could offer an additional function (just an example)

Problems with the app
Every few weeks, the app refuses to sync data with my watch and suddenly drops it. The notifications still work, so it often takes me a while to notice. At that point a month of data is missing, which is the whole reason I was interested in this watch. Thankfully, each time this has happened I have eventually been able to get the watch to sync again and restore the missing stats by essentially playing with it for a half hour—turning my phone on and off, turning Bluetooth on and off, removing it from my Bluetooth menu so that the app prompts me to add it again, etc. However, this has been very frustrating. The app has also permanently shown a low battery sign after the first time I replaced it, which means it gives me no indication of the actual battery life and I have to guess at when that really needs to be changed. This watch would be a much better purchase if the app were more cooperative. It doesn’t seem to be very well integrated.
