    This is a beautiful watch and I love everything about it. The only con is the battery life, but the charger is a very small magnetic disc on a cord, and I have a small portable phone charger that I can stick in my purse to charge. I'm retired, so most of the time I'm around the house, and can charge it on my laptop without even having to take it off. One of my favorite features is that it has Google Voice, so I can respond to a text by using Google Voice. That's really handy when driving. The watch works with Google Fit, and you can download that app on the watch. There are a lot of apps that you can download directly on the watch. I don't have to go into the phone app often,

    GEORGIOS but UI wasn't intuitive

    What is or isn't an "intuitive" user interface is very subjective but neither I (a tech professional), nor my wife (the wife of a nerd) found it very easy to use. This was chosen over the new Samsung Galaxy watch for its stunning style and quality band (typical of Fossil). It was returned for the Galaxy. My wife called me at work an hour after the Samsung arrived. She had it set up herself and was already listening to music on it and recording her stats in Samsung Health. Cheap rubber band and more money but so easy to use. Can't say enough how high quality the Fossil is in form and style. They just need better software.

    I loved the look and feel of this watch and it worked great for a few days, until it became extremely buggy and was showing multiple screens ghosted on top of one another and would take over 1 minute to do an action when I tapped on the screen. This was following an update from wearOS so I'm unsure if this was related to that, however, I had another wearOS watch that I was using at the same time to compare that did not have any issues. I returned this item for a full refund as I may have just gotten a defective one. If it works well, then I loved it while it functioned for a few days and I got a lot of compliments.

    I love this watch. I’ve had several smart watches and I really wanted an Apple Watch but couldn’t beat the price for how classy this watch is. It syncs and I get calls, emails and texts no problems. The only reason I didn’t give it 5 stars is the battery life is really bad. It lasts all day but not into the evening. Also I can walk for hours around a mall or someplace and it will say I only walked for 20 minutes. That might be a google fit issue but it’s disappointing

    I love the design of this watch. A few things I dislike are the battery life and it gets pretty hot at times. Also if I do not have the app running on my phone than the watch will not connect to my phone and I’m not sure if other smart watches do the same but it’s not very desirable. Everything else is good, I get my notifications fine as long as I’m connected and the watch face option is also cool. I also like the google fit

    Specifically asked if this product would be on sale when purchased. Clerk said absolutely not. Week and a half later. Was 195 from 275. Mildly irritated. Watch was purchased for my girlfriend. She loves it, so that's a plus. It's well made, easy to fit if you have a watch too, and good battery life if set up properly. Happy with product. Not happy with clerk.

    At first I got it because of they way it looked. Then I started to use it while I was at the gym. Now i use all the time, to track my steps, keep track of my heart rate while exercising. I like that I can receive/send text messages while I'm at work without having to take my phone out my pocket.

    Bought this watch for my girlfriend and she's loves it. Comes with all the features you'd expect in a watch expect for cellular which isn't a big deal. Has NFC for google pay and awesome OS so far. Works great with her new pixel 3

    It is a very nice watch but it did have some screen problems after a month and I had to get it replaced. My replacement watch I have now is alot better. Just wish it had better battery life for the price. Be sure to get a warranty. It’s worth it.

    I love this watch, especially the look. Unfortunately it does not stay connected to my iPhone at all. So it’s great as a watch and it tracks my steps well but it does not do anything else. Unfortunately it is being returned.

    The watch was great and looked gorgeous on my wrist but it wasn't for me. You are not able to talk thru the watch or listen to music from the watch that I wanted. The look of the watch sold me!! Lol!

    My daughter loves this watch! Its slightly smaller than these Galaxy watch making the fit much better. Works well with her Note 9 also.
