Fossil Gen 5 Smartwatch will soon be available in India on Amazon


Fossil revealed its Gen 5 Smartwatch last month and it was pretty awesome but sadly it was not available for India. But now it seems like the company is now planning to launch this beautiful smartwatch in India. According to Amazon's promo page for the upcoming Great Indian Festival sale, it is confirmed that the device will be available for the purchase. The screenshot is shown below. Currently, we don't know when the sale will go live but we hope that it will happen sooner or later.


For now, it is available for purchase in the UK on its official website and it is priced at $279.

The Fossil Gen 5 runs WearOS by Google (formerly Android Wear) and comes with premium hardware. It is powered by the Snapdragon Wear 3100 processor paired with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of storage.

Sensors include accelerometer, altimeter, ambient light, gyroscope, and heart rate, while connectivity options include Bluetooth 4.2, NFC, Wi-Fi, and GPS. It is water-resistant up to 3ATM so you can take it with you on a little swim. You can interact with Google Assistant as it comes with a microphone & external speaker which enables the user to pick up calls and do many other activities over the voice commands.




It is available in two different dial styles, paired three strap options each. There’s the Carlyle HR model available in Smoke Stainless Steel(Left), Black Silicone(Middle) and Dark Brown Leather(Left), while the Julianna HR variant ships with Rose Gold Stainless Steel, Blush Leather and Stainless Steel options.

Fossil also crammed in just about every smartwatch staple you could ask for. A dedicated GPS chip allows you map your outdoor runs/walks with the Gen 5 without needing to lug your phone with you; NFC enables contactless Google Pay payments; there's a heart-rate sensor that keeps tabs on your ticker 24/7.


As awesome as its specs are more beautiful and comfortable the watch looks. We can't wait for this to launch and wear it in our hands. It is a little expensive but is worth it.
