While it’s certainly not easy to keep track of all the Fossil Group-made smartwatches released over the last few years under a bunch of different names, the Wear OS-powered devices currently sold at a nice discount on Amazon are actually not very hard to separate from the pack.
The typically small price gap between the two is however much larger right now, as the Gen 5E costs a whopping $100 less than usual in a grand total of five different flavors. We’re talking three men’s models and two women-oriented versions, each of which carries a $249 MSRP marked down by a substantial 40 percent at the time of this writing.
Naturally, the specs and features of these deeply discounted five are all the same, including heart rate monitoring, a built-in microphone and speaker for making and receiving voice calls on your wrist (with a connected smartphone nearby), Google Pay support, 1GB RAM, 4GB storage, “multi-day” battery life (with certain capabilities switched off), and a high-res Always-On Display.
That makes your choice entirely dependent on style (and size), with the 42mm women’s models featuring chic silver/gold and “rose gold glitz” designs and the 44mm men’s smartwatches sporting a black stainless steel bracelet, black silicone band, and brown leather strap to pretty much fit everyone’s individual preferences.
