Without the 4100 chip, this is definitely a poor move. This version should not be sold for any more than $125-150 range. Anything more than that is kind of fooling customers. My humble suggestion to customers is "Do not buy this!" Wait till they bring out models with the 4100 and at that price!
Its a JOKE. These should be sub 200, preferably 150 dollars would be instabuy.
"Some corners had to be cut to get the price down so there's no longer onboard GPS, compass and light sensor as well as non-rotating crowns and lowered 4GB storage"...
That's A LOT of corners just to save $50. The price should be down to max $150 without those features.
Why still Snapdragon 3100 chipset ??
It should be 4100 or 4100 +
Fossil still in 2019.

I wonder is the Amazfit app any better than Huawei Health app?
I had an option between the Huawei GT 2 and a fossil branded smart watch (probably was gonna be the Diesel smarwatch) so glad I went for the GT2 . Google Fit may be better than Huawei health when it comes to workouts but imo that's it. NFC on a Bluetooth smartwatch is pointless if your phone is essentially always in your pocket. The lack of downloading apps, I don't care, can't really see many people using tinder on their smarwatch to swipe left or right. I can answer calls thru my smarwatch and it's very clear. I'd rather sacrifice a few options that I know I wouldn't use for a equally good smartwatch with a very good battery life for a cheaper price. The only downside to Huawei smart drvices is the health app. SOO many people complained their devices didn't connect to their non Huawei smartphone ( I think it's fixed now) but yeh got my GT2 in January 2020 and very glad I did

The current gen of snapdragon chipsets is 4100 and 4100+ Why make a NEW device with 'out of date' tech from get go. The other thing is being way over priced. If you want to look for the benchmark devices at the moment look to Amazfit GTS2/GTR2 and OppoWatch. This goes into the junk category (in good company).
