While we still looking forward to a Fossil smartwatch powered by the Snapdragon 4100 chip, the Fossil Gen 5 LTE is now available in the US and supported by Verizon. It’s a cellular version of the popular Gen 5 released over a year ago. It has the same features as Gen 5 except that it’s a standalone smartwatch that is capable of making and receiving calls independent of a smartphone. It’s a fine smartwatch, well crafted and equipped to track your daily activities.

The Gen 5 LTE is powered by Snapdragon 3100 which is a huge disappointment for Wear OS fans, however, it has 1GB RAM which can help make performance better. It has a decent design, great display powered by AMOLED, and also durable with its case made of stainless steel and accompanied by leather straps. The straps can be changed with 22mm compatible strap sizes.

It has an 8GB storage capacity just like the Gen 5, this will allow you to store your favorite tracks on the watch. It also has a microphone and loudspeaker that will support its cellular feature. There’s Google Pay that allows you to make payment directly from this smartwatch, and as well Google Assistant that allows you to use your voice to do simple tasks.

The battery life is expected to last up to a day with mixed usage, and even longer with the battery saver modes activated. The charger is a magnetic one that is easy to snap at the back of the watch.
