TreBar, 07 Aug 2018I just cant await the arrival of the new Explorist Model. I own the 3rd generation Explorist a... more4th gen battery sucks for what i Know. How much backup does this 3rd gen gives you? 5-6 hours? Can you make call with it. As 4th gen lacks speaker so i am thinking to get 3rd gen specially when it is on sale for 190.
I just cant await the arrival of the new Explorist Model. I own the 3rd generation Explorist and the announced features are exactly, what would make it perfect. Sufficient Battery-Power is critical though.
Regarding the samsung Gear watches. The Tizen Adventure was a nice concept but is over now. Running on Googles Wear OS the Fossil Watches offer way more app versatility. With the integration of Kotlin into Android Studio, even I could write a small app - having not created a line of code in the last two decades.
Who doesnt know Fossil, doesnt know anything about watches. With brands like Diesel, Skagen, Kors, Armani or Misfit the Fossil company owns most of the smartwatch brands from the classic watch industry. The build quality of the Explorist is unbeaten by players like samsung or garmin (They know whats a watch).
The new product line really looks promising and will surely be a top-seller.
"A battery that should last a day"
Has anyone tried gps-enabled watches? How long does the battery last with gps on?

About smartwatches - Samsung is pretty good, but still a lot to improve to be in Apple's level.
[deleted post]It's not even really known in my country in the first place, so?
Also, I'm no watch dude collecting for flexing wrists and bliging for attention.

I don't even know this Fossil company since birth.
Geric.770, 06 Aug 2018Fossil or Gear Series?I'm going for gear. Not gear 3 because it is pretty bulky, but new gear should be better for my taste. Honestly never liked Fossil watche design.
Also haven't used latest wear OS but previous version was just terrible.
