To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I have used gen 3 smartwatch and i have also used gen 5 smartwatch • G pay doesn't work and gets disappeared after update it only works in 7 countries as of now. • whenever i recieve a call on watch the voice breaks almost every time. Voice is not clear • google assistent does not give messages in voice and don't respond to ok google after turning it on in setting. • os wear play store sucks and thier are very less useful applications. It has very less content • You can not download any songs but after using play app of google you can listen to limited songs and if you want to download it than pay for premium.
COMING TO THE PROS
• charges really fast almost within one hour and lasts for a day. For continuous use it will last around 3-4 hours. • Nice design and good finish. Speaker has a decent voice.
Giving it one star because it's not worth paying 23k
I'm writing this review after 1 week of usage. Android wearOS is smooth. You can install Apps from PlayStore directly on watch through wifi. It comes with 1 GB RAM and 8 Gigs of memory so you can download or stream music on the go through Google Play Music or Spotify. Google Pay does not work in India through watch. AOD (always on display) works great and helps in saving battery. You can use Google fit or strava or mapmywalk+ to track physical activity. Touch screen responsiveness is great. Google maps and Google Translate can be downloaded on watch. Battery life is 1 day with most features ON but you get 4 options also: Daily 1 day Extended 2 to 3 days Custom as per requirement Time only 1 week
Initially, i thought battery life is less, but now I'm pretty satisfied with the performance and features. Giving 1 star less for the battery (which can be improved in the next version)
This review is just for iPhone users. I use iPhone 7 and had an assumption that everything will work as expected but that isn’t the case. May be I did not do proper research before I bought this watch. However to ease out for iPhone users, I am letting my observation out. So people can know what they are going to get when they buy.
Features as of now: 1. Only notifies you that you got a message along with the sender’s name for apps such as Whatsapp, sms etc but you cannot reply or read the message from the watch.
2. You will get notified on who is calling with the name and the number, you can either choose to attend or reject, however you cannot speak using the watch.
Note: Just browsed the internet and came to know that the OTA update would hit us before the year end. This will enable us to make calls and attend the calls and speak using the watch. Until then we need to wait.
For android they have all liberty to use and no restrictions.
Now coming to the look of the watch and performance.
1. Watch looks stylish and cool. 2. Navigation is smooth and easy. 3. Notifications hit the phone without any lag.
Rest I will update once I start using. This is my first day. I will rate 5 stars once the proper update is pushed.
**************************************************** So as I mentioned before OTA update got pushed two weeks back. Now I am able to take calls and make calls using my watch.
Speaker is audible and mic is also good while I used my watch.
However, you need use Google fit app for fitness tracking as Apple Health app will not work well with this watch.
I have changed my stars from 3 to 5. Fossil did what they committed😊
The watch is amazing! But the only downfall is the speaker, the speaker cracks when I take calls on the watch and the other person is barely audible. Is there a fix? Cause this is the only thing that's Extremely bad about it
Tengo menos de 6 meses con muy poco uso y el aro metálico de carga se salió sólo. Ya no puede cargar. Este problema se reporta en muchos lugares por mucha gente y fossil solo da soporte si eres de EUA. NO TIENE GARANTIA EN MÉXICO. Ya los contacte de todas las maneras, te contestan un par de emails pero en cuanto se dan cuenta del problema o que eres de México te dejan de contestar.
Es casi imposible volver a pegar el aro, aparte de que tiene una posición precisa, se requiere de cierta presión para mantener el aro en el fondo. No he podido repararlo ni cobrar garantía.
Really I didn't even wanted to give 2star but this rating is only for looks otherwise watch is very confusing sometime it connect the call sometime not Google assistance is working but not speaking no guide inside nothing is explained and for backup if u go it will give u 24 hours backup if not used heavily and if used heavily it will give 5-7 hours really wasted my money:(
Good voice call quality, yet to know whether it can be corrected.. Otherwise gd features Can be connected to WiFi U can customize watch faces along with synchronization of FB n Insta Some disparity in steps walked n calories used
Worst battery even compared to gen 4. Wear Os has very limited functionality. very few apps in appstore. Continuous heart rate sensor is battery sucker. 30 mins usage of continous heart rate brought 100% charge to 30 %.
Not at all worth the money. better go for another fitness trackers which can satisfy all the possibilities of wear Os with very less price Eg:amaze fit.
I bought it because of the new processor SD3100 expecting latest firmware updates(Wear Os 3).
It's a great product don't get me wrong and the design it's fantastic, functionality wise It's great too but it's battery life is absolutely not acceptable for the price range of 400 Canadian dollars. I only had this watch for 3 or 4 days now and I have to turn most features off so I can get by the day without the watch dying on me. What's the point of a smartwatch when you have to turn more than half of its features so it doesn't die on you. So with that said I'm probably going to be returning it.
