What a beautiful watch, and it's not just any watch…it's a smartwatch!
We live in a multi-functional kind of world, and our gadgets should be on top of their game too. The new Fossil Gen 4 Venture HR Smartwatch is just the kind of multi-functional we need.
My Fossil Gen 4 Venture HR Smartwatch came in a beautiful box and the set-up was user friendly. All I had to do was add the Wear OS app in the App Store (I have an iPhone X) and follow the prompts between my smartwatch and the app on my phone.
First we connected it via Bluetooth using the smartwatch's NFC technology enabling simple one-touch pairing. Then synced I synced the app with my Google account. Once all was set-up then I synced it onto my smartwatch, and began using it right away. I love that there are only a few buttons that make the functionalities very simple to toggle between. And I can charge my smartwatch easily using the included wireless charging dock.
The Fossil Gen 4 Venture HR Smartwatch makes it easier to be healthy with the Google Fit app’s two new activity trackers: Heart Points and Move Minutes. Both were designed in collaboration with the American Heart Association and the World Health Organization. These evidence-based metrics measure activity intensity, and smarter health coaching makes your fitness goals more achievable by motivating you to stay active throughout your day, everyday.
My smartwatch monitors heart rate and location; is able to play stored music on your runs; and it can also record information about exercise sessions, steps taken and floors climbed. This smartwatch is also swim-proof with it's water-resistant design that defends your smartwatch against submersion in up to 164′ of water.
Fashion meets function with this designer brand and you can even customize your dial (watch face). It makes quite a fashion statement with the rose gold band that blends with exercise wear at the gym or office clothing when you go to work. And with a 40mm Stainless Steel Rose Gold color, it's not only fashionable and elegant – it has life hacks that will optimize our productivity!
When it comes to productivity and work, you can make every minute matter with smart help from the convenience of your wrist. The Proactive Help From the Google Assistant keeps you ahead of your day with proactive, personalized help even before you ask. And this smartwatch will maximize your time by helping you get more done with more glanceable, easy to manage notifications for your Calendar, SMS, email and social apps. It also has smart replies to respond quickly on the go and quick access to Google Pay—so you can pay with a wave at almost anyplace that accepts credit cards. And the vibrate mode quietly alerts you to a range of notifications, such as incoming e-mails, calls and text messages, as well as upcoming calendar events to keep you updated on day-to-day happenings.
This smartwatch communicates and is compatible with both iPhone/iOS and Android smartphones for easy data collection. For extended battery life, you can easily charge your smartwatch using the included wireless charging dock.
