Pros and cons

According to our smartwatch expert
  • Get insight into your fitness with the VO2 max measurement, which measures the maximum oxygen uptake of your blood.
  • You don't just receive notifications of messages, but you can also make calls with the watch when your phone is near.
  • Thanks to the integrated music player, you can listen to your favorite playlists via your watch.
  • You must charge the watch every day.
  • The watch doesn't show you in which heart rate zone you're working out, so your workouts are less targeted.

    Nice smartwatch

    • iOS integration

    The Fossil gen 5 (FTW4026) is a beautiful watch to look at. The minimalist design and beautifully finished display make this a very neat smartwatch. The brown leather straps radiate a luxurious feeling. If you would like to replace these straps, this is quite easy because you can click/slide them "loose" with a slide.

    After opening the box I didn't know how to turn on the watch. After I connected the watch to the supplied charging cable, it turned on automatically. Setting up the watch is quite simple, you follow a few steps on the watch itself and on your smartphone.

    I use the watch itself in combination with an iPhone. At first, the watch's interface feels a bit sluggish, probably because it performs system updates and app updates in the background. (probably the memory is filling up a bit when performing these updates) After 1 hour of use, the interface is already a lot faster.

    The watch interface (the clock) is easy to adjust by holding down the screen for a few seconds. Fossil itself supplies a number of custom designs. It is also possible to download a different design from the PlayStore.

    Also tested spotify, it took a while before I got this going to link it to my current spotify account. The heart rate monitor is fun to use during exercise, it also measures how many calories you have burned.

    The battery life with a bit more intensive use (especially if it is fairly new) I found somewhat moderate. 10 hours saves that in my case just. I must say that I have everything on.

    Then the link with an iOS device (iPhone) I think it's a shame that you still need a dedicated app for a wearOS watch that must always be open on your phone. In the app itself you can easily indicate what you want to receive push messages from.
    Note that you can only set this after a random app on your phone has sent a push message (in the beginning the list will be empty)

    All in all a cool smartwatch with a cool design, the link with an iPhone and the battery life I think is a bit mediocre, so that's why a 7 as a final mark

    Elegant smartwatch but not for the athlete

    Rob van den Bogert | 20 October 2019 | Automatically translated from Dutch

    • Size (elegant)
    • Always On screen
    • Waterproof
    • Battery life
    • Less suitable for sports than sports watches

    Appearance:
    After a few weeks of testing with the Fossil Gen 5 smartwatch, I discovered that it is an elegant smartwatch, where the software does not keep up with the hardware. In addition, I compared the watch with my Garmin Forerunner 235 (a sports watch with basic smartwatch functions).
    A plus of the Fossil is the size. With my narrow wrist, larger watches quickly seem bulky. The Fossil does not. Both the diameter and thickness are small enough to give the watch an elegant appearance.
    In addition, the always-on display is beautiful. I always think it's really stupid when you wear a 'watch' on your wrist where all you see is a black screen. With the Fossil you can choose your own dial, where you can always read the time. The screen is nice and bright. Due to the OLED technology, black is really black. Of course, the brightness is reduced in 'always-on' mode, so outside in full sun you may have to activate the watch to see things better.
    Oh yes, the watch can just go into the water. You should not do deep sea diving with it, but holding it in the shower or in the pool is no problem.

    Software and operation:
    Android Wear OS gives a mixed feeling. On the one hand, everything looks neat and navigating through the menus works fine, thanks in part to the rotary knob. You can read your notifications, send simple answers to WhatsApp messages, ask Google Assistant questions and of course install all kinds of apps yourself.
    In addition to the rotary knob, two other buttons are available, to which you can assign the function yourself.
    Downside: like most touchscreens, the Fossil also registers touches when drops fall on the screen. It is therefore quite annoying to operate the watch in the rain, because you cannot navigate with the buttons alone.
    Google Assistant is also quite slow. She sometimes takes the time before she hears you and some more time before she says something back.

    battery consumption
    The battery consumption. That's not really a plus. Fossil has tried to make the most of it by offering extensive battery settings and making the watch go into a battery-saving mode when the battery is low. You can also choose a mode where the watch is no longer smart, but can still be used as a watch. However, it remains difficult, because in my opinion you do not buy such a watch just to read the time.
    If you just use the watch for what it is intended (so as a smartwatch), you can be happy to get through the day and you really have to charge again in the evening. Especially if you include a (sports) activity in between. Unfortunately, most Android Wear watches have this problem. An example from today. The battery percentage was at 89% when I left for a walk. After the walk of about an hour and a half, only 49% of it was left, where I used Google Fit to record the walk. Tracking your marathon with this watch will therefore not work for most people.

    To play sports
    Because I regularly run and/or cycle, I was very curious about the possibilities to include activities. I compared it with my Garmin FR235 watch. I registered my first run with Google Fit. The pace while walking was not right. Instead of around 5:10 min/km, the watch read more than 6:00 min/km. When I looked back when I was home, the average speed was correct again. The heart rate also seemed fairly accurate. Unfortunately, you can't really see many details of your activity. The Google apps let it down a bit and feel very basic compared to Garmin Connect.
    Later I tried the Strava app. This one seemed to display more realistic tempo values along the way, but also doesn't feel very 'off'. You can set little. On the Garmin I can choose which values I want on the display and I hear my speed every kilometer. Missing all those features. There may be better apps, I haven't tested them all yet.
    It seems that companies do not really dare to bet on Wear OS. Hopefully I'm wrong, but time will tell.
    The GPS accuracy of the watch seems to be quite good. Compared to the Garmin, the Fossil seems a bit more inaccurate, but that could be just as much about the software as the hardware.

    Other:
    The watch also has a speaker, where questions you ask Google can also be answered by the watch and apps can give voice directions, for example. Inside you can hear it nicely, but outside with wind or traffic it is not very useful.
    A more useful feature is playing music via bluetooth. The watch has 8 GB of memory. You can store music in this memory via, for example, Google Play Music. Now you can go out without your phone and listen to music through your watch.

    Conclusion:
    It is difficult to say whether the Fossil is a must or not. Are you mainly looking for a smartwatch and can you live with charging every night? Then the Fossil is an excellent choice. Are you mainly looking for a sports watch? Then something from Garmin or Polar, for example, is the better choice, where you have to accept that these are a bit disappointing as a smartwatch.

    • battery can last longer

    When I opened the box, I immediately fell in love with the design. What a beautiful watch. It is now my 3rd Fossil smartwatch and they are really getting more beautiful. It is noticeably faster and certainly lasts longer with its battery. In terms of settings etc it is the same as the other generations. However, the battery modes have been adjusted which is certainly nice to be able to adapt it to the circumstances. In addition, I am very happy with the "Ok Google" function. I use it regularly to turn all the lights in the house off and on. The heart rate monitor measures well and keeps track of it constantly, even with a round of the heart it goes well. In addition, it is very nice to adjust the dials. When I go to the office I adjust it to classic and when running to modern. So so far a very nice and handy watch.

    What a great clock, this new smartwatch from Fossil. I was already familiar with the smartwatch family of Fossil, but this one is really brilliant.

    Linking this watch to an Android phone is almost automatic, it is a piece of cake. After the pairing process, there were a lot of updates for the watch, but the installation went very smoothly.
    Then take a look at the new features compared to previous Fossil smartwatches. What immediately stands out is the built-in speaker. This is particularly easy because it allows you to talk back to you in the built-in Google Assistant. And that's great, because then you're in the supermarket and you tell your watch to turn on the lights at home, and you hear "Okay, I'll turn on the lights". Brilliant!
    The possibility that you can make a phone call through your watch, while your phone is in your pocket, is also great!

    Yes, this new Fossil Gen5 watch is a real asset. The speed at which the clock responds is also remarkable. You can notice that there is a real powerhouse in this watch, that 3100 Qualcomm processor with no less than 4 cores. The working memory of 1 Gb is more than enough to perform smoothly and smoothly. Fast, but without guzzling too much energy. With my dial set to "Always on" I can easily make it into the evening. And if I still have to use my watch for a few days, then there are possibilities to achieve this with this watch. For example, different modes are selectable with which the smartwatch lasts up to three weeks (with only displaying the time).

    All in all, a great watch that will certainly appeal to sports enthusiasts.
    For example, you can use apps such as Google WorkOut for registration of all kinds of sports. These are then neatly kept in your Google Fit profile. If you have more requirements for the registration of your workout, you can even install the Strava app on your device, so that everything is neatly uploaded to your Strava profile after your training.
    With the storage capacity of 8 GB, this watch can handle enough apps, so don't worry about that!

    All in all a great watch, the best Fossil has released to date.
    Highly recommended!

    Best smartwatch at the moment
    • Works quickly and smoothly due to a fast processor and a lot of memory
    • Androis wear so many apps available
    • Charging is very fast
    • Elegant and lightweight
    • Can't turn off while charging
    • The docking for charging feels very cheap
    • No charger included, just a USB cable

    I come from a TicWatch Pro. This one has an older processor and less memory. I can wholeheartedly recommend this switch to anyone. The speed difference is huge.

    The battery that is often complained about is not that bad and is actually exactly as expected. I have turned off a number of features that are unnecessary for me (Wi-Fi, wrist gestures and NFC), so that at the end of the day I am still around 40% (from +/- 07:00-23:00).

    I am one of the lucky ones to test the new Fossil Carlyle Gen 5 via The Insiders. To date I have had no experience with smatchwatches. Always thought of buying one. In the meantime I have owned the watch for 3 weeks.

    The Fossil Carlyle Gen 5 has a nice sleek design. It also fits nicely on the wrist. However, it remains a pity that the number of colors of tires when purchased is limited. You can still buy a strap with a different color separately, but that's a shame. In addition, you can choose the dial to your own liking.

    After charging and starting up, it is puzzling how it all works, there is no real instruction included. But if you can operate a smartphone, you can also operate this smartwatch.

    What strikes me is that there are not many apps that can be installed for Android. Or you have to pay to use all functionalities. Assume that increasing numbers is a matter of time.

    After puzzling it out, it's nice to get all the notifications on your Fossil Carlyle Gen 5. Can also keep the phone in the pocket. You can also record with the smartwatch when someone calls and have the conversation. The disadvantage is that everyone can enjoy your conversation.

    The nice thing about a smartwatch is to see how long you have been working on, your heart rate and how many calories you have connected while exercising.

    All in all a nice watch! What strikes me most is how long the battery life is. Its small watch and still last a whole day. The only drawback is that the number of apps is still quite limited.

    He is handsome, the new Fossil Carlyle! Slim, fashionable, hip and classic at the same time. As far as the outside is concerned, Fossil has it covered. But let's be honest, you don't buy a smartwatch just for the outside. The specs can be found everywhere. There's little point in rattling it up again here, so I won't do that either. I own a 4 year old Sony smartwatch 3, which I had on my wrist every day until recently. Did I need a new one? No actually not. He is still doing great. Knotted the Carlyle on my wrist this weekend. More beautiful, faster, sharper and more functions. Actually a superlative in everything, except for one thing. And that brings me to the weakest link of this new Fossil, I think. With my sony I can easily get through the day, with the Carelyle this usually works, but often not. If the day starts early and ends late, it will fail. You can change some settings to extend the battery life, but that also makes the smartwatch less smart. There is a lot of criticism on the net about android wear from google. I don't quite understand. Everything works fine for me. The freedom in the choices of the programs is very nice. There are many apps in the play store that work well with the smartwatch. For example, the swim app is indispensable for me. Fortunately, the Carlyle is waterproof and I go into the water for an hour twice a week. The fossil has a speaker and a microphone. It should also be possible to make calls without taking your phone out of your pocket. I can't seem to get that right. The connection stutters and is so bad that it is unusable for me. If anyone has any tips I'd love to hear them. Would I recommend the phone? I do not know yet. The Fossil gen 5 is beautiful, very beautiful even. Combine this with speed and a sharp look and we are there...........or not..........that one minus makes me doubt

    • Google assistant falters

    Before I got it in I was afraid that the smartwatch would hang ungainly on my wrist. Fortunately that is very easy. I haven't worn a watch in years, so it still takes some getting used to to have something on my wrist again. In terms of functionality, in general I still wonder if a smartwatch is something for me. I never stray far from my smartphone which offers the same (and more) features. Of course it makes a difference that you don't have to take the watch out of your pocket. The Google Assistant functionality is nice, but at the same time also the function that has let me down on occasion. He seems to be listening, but doesn't write down the words I say. I later found out that he then claims to have no WiFi or connection to my phone. Something I can hardly imagine in most situations.

    The design is really very beautiful. Of the available watch faces, however, only a few are pretty enough to actually use. Watch faces from third party apps are nice but lack functionality.

    In terms of battery consumption, my experience is mixed. There are days when I barely make it to the end of the day on the 'Extended' profile. I've since switched to 'Custom' anyway because I was missing some features in 'Extended' (particularly Wifi and Tilt to wake).
    One day after my walk I forgot to turn off the workout mode. Then you can certainly forget that you can still make it to the end of the day with your battery. Something like a warning like "Are you sure you're still working out? There's no activity left at all" would be a good addition.

    I can't say much about the storage capacity. I honestly wouldn't know how to fill it up to that limit. I don't need to put all mp3's on it.

    The heart rate sensor provides interesting values during an intensive sports session. I'm not always under the impression that these were accurate. Sometimes my heart still races like crazy while the watch shows a heart rate below 100.

    The funniest thing is that because I'm not used to it, I hardly use it to check the time.
