Lifestyle brand Fossil has launched new smartwatches in the last two years. She wants to offer her products as an alternative to Apple Watch. Fossil’s latest smartwatch is the Gen5 Carlile HR. It costs Rs 22,995. Is it worth spending so much money for this?
The premium touch
we get from the metal case and strap is the Fossil Gen5 Carlyle HR, the best looking smartwatch in the market. We have reviewed its stainless steel variant. It gets a premium touch with its metal case and strap. Two buttons and speakers on the left side give the watch a good look. Due to the metal, it weighs slightly more.
Works on Google Wear operating system
However, it has Google Wear operating system, which can act as a deal breaker. Despite upgrading the system several times, Google has not been able to bring it to the desired level and its productivity is low. This software gives you the option of customization, but overall it has limited advantages. Wear OS works better with Android than iOS (iPhone). It gives notifications of all messages and third party apps. The software also tracks your health. For this it uses Google Fit and Nike Run Club App. However, the design smartwatch does not prove useful for those who want to use it during workouts. The device can be inserted into the fashion accessory segment. Equipped with battery saving option
Talking about battery performance, the Gen5 Carlile HR can run all day. Despite its Always On feature and other sensors running continuously in the background, the battery lasts all day. Many users may have to charge it before 24 hours. Fossil’s new smartwatch has a variety of battery saving options, such as daily mode, extended mode, time only mode, and a custom mode in which you can decide for yourself which features will be turned on.
There is no loss to take
Overall, Fossil Carlyle is good in terms of HR design and performance. Running it is like a good experience and features can be enjoyed by swiping. Wear OS can be further improved. If you want to show off a good looking smartwatch, then Fossil Gen 5 Carlile HR is a great option.
