Fossil Gen 5 Garrett Features

  • Premium Design
  • Fossil Gen 5 Garrett comes in a classic appearance with a design that defines a true premium smartwatch.

    It has a rigged and fatter bezel and a result, the Garrett is slightly bigger than both Gen Juliana and Calyle.

    The case of Gen 5 Garrett is made of stainless steel, while the 22mm interchangeable straps come in stainless steel and silicone materials. The screen is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass, and it’s available in 5 versions; black, blue, gold, gunmetal silver, and silver colors

    AMOLED still powers the display on the Gen 5, and there are three buttons by the side which includes one rotating button. Although AMOLED display isn’t so easy to read outdoors, it offers a more interactive and lively display and with ambient light, the sensor makes it easy to read the display in any light condition.

  • Storage/Media
  • Just like Gen 5 Carlyle, the Garrett has received a boost in storage capacity with 8GB that’s twice that of the Gen 4 explorist. This will allow you to take more music and other files onboard. It also comes with a higher 1GB RAM that makes the Gen 5 perform faster than its predecessor.

    This was noted on the Ticwatch Pro 4G – another outstanding Wear OS smartwatch which also has a 1GB RAM that significantly improved its performance even though being powered by the outdated Snapdragon 2100 chip. So, with Snapdragon 3100 powering this smartwatch and 1GB RAM, you should expect a faster Gen 5 Carlyle.

  • Water Resistance Rating
  • The Gen 5 Garrett has the same 3ATM water resistance rating as the Gen 4. This means the Gen 5 is water resistance up to 30 meters. So, you can safely wear this device under the rain, to the shower, or perhaps to the pool.

  • Impressive and Manageable Battery Life
  • The Gen 5 Garrett being powered by the Snapdragon 3100 chip features the battery life saver mode as seen on the Gen 4 Sport. However, Gen 5 has four battery modes that significantly elongate its battery life.

    It has four battery modes which include, time-only, daily, extended, and custom modes. The time-only mode is similar to that of the Gen 4 sport which will see this device last about a week or more. Although, with this mode activated, Wear OS features become inactive.

    The extended battery saver mode will elongate the battery life of the Gen 5 without compromising notifications and heart rate tracking. While the daily mode with all feature active will see the Gen 5 last just about a day or more.

    The custom mode as the name implies allows you to setup custom battery saver mode.

  • Activity/Fitness Tracking
  • The Gen 5 Garrett is also well equipped to track your active life. It comes with all the standard sensors which include accelerometer, GPS, gyroscope, and the improved heart rate sensor that makes Gen 5 a smarter device that accurately tracks your heart rate so you get more insightful and accurate details to help you train at your pace.

    With the Gen 5, you can track steps, sleep, distance, calories, as well as sport modes to help manage your training activities effortlessly. There’re also new apps like the Cardiogram that tracks your heart rate, including the much improved Google Fit that allows you to manage your fitness goals.

    It has inbuilt GPS which makes it a great choice for tracking your outdoor activities.

  • Notifications

The Gen 5 is equipped with Bluetooth v4.2 to keep you connected with all that matters to you. It’s compatible with both Android and iOS devices which when successfully paired will keep you updated when there’s a new notification on your phone. You get to receive alerts when there’s a new email, call, and other notifications from both native and third-party apps.

NFC is also onboard which powers Google Pay – a contactless payment system that enables you make payment on the go from this device.

Pros

  • Premium design.
  • Powered by Snapdragon 3100 chip.
  • Manageable battery life.
  • High 1GB RAM and 8GB storage.
  • Loudspeaker and microphone inbuilt.
