All About Surveys
This with an e-ink like screen including Pebble's memory LCD presentation would be the most amazing watch. Animations and color would be up.
Why haven't anyone put a oled on top of eink yet??
What's that rugged looking Fossil watch in the end?
totally into it
Which video editing software you use brother?
This is the ultimate test cheating device
Wish this was published earlier before i bought the apple watch
Please, can someone tell me if it has built-in storage for music and if I can connect my Bluetooth headphones to it? I want to be able to leave my phone at home, sometimes. Thanks Michael, as always bringing great products. I just miss this information on your smartwatches reviews.
Fossil one of the most innovative and best watch brand and affordable too
Thank you, I think this is the best review I've found of the Hybrid HR so far. But it doesn't answer one feature question I have: when the watch displays notifications from the phone, can you interact with them?
Its definitely a different watch, but its only for a small group of ppl. Majority of the ppl still would prefer a full on smart watch. Nevertheless im glad that there are options out there for us to choose.
No fucking way. I was interested in this until I heard the price. You can get a real smartwatch at that price point with more features. I'd pay $100 and wouldn't go even a dime above that.
Fossil is not a real watch brand.
So apparently this watch has zero granularity with notifications from apps. And a lot of apps simply don't send notifications to the watch as the operating system is so proprietary. Why would this not be mentioned in a review? Not all smart watch notification functionality is equal.
That's a good looking and a premium feature full watch how about one for me
Casio did this way back. I was 14 back in the early 90s. When I got it. This was the best! But in all honesty I'd we need a watch, phone, tablet, pc, we are lost. This is a great WATCH
I want this watch
I wanted to buy one for my wife .I checked it in a fossil store and surprisingly it was so giant I have doubt any women eager to wear it. 42 mm diameter is not suitable for most women's wrist. They just clearly wanted to cut the price by making only one frame size and I think they will pay the price .Even the girls working in store were disappointed by the companies decision and advised me to look for other watches.
What the difference between the Hybrid HR and the other Hybrids?
Is it only messaging apps that we can get notifications from
just buy a mi band 4.
I bought this watch but honestly I'll return it. I though it will be something like Pebble watch but not even close.
Can someone send me a link for this watch
This was an incredible review!
Fossil is the best brand that I know. Great product ( not too flashy ), reasonable prices and amazing customer service.
Is this watch (not strap)the black one ? Or is the brown one , thanks
Looks good to me.
It actually looks better than most smart watches and thats what i care abt
I still think Withings looks better when it comes to analog looks
Good sharing.ty bro
Ha can't believe you live in NYC! Big fan here 🙂
Fossil stock has gone from ~$180 a few years ago to ~$8 today.
Does this have constant HR tracking?
thumbs if you haven't worn a watch since 1998 because it kept getting caught on things like door frames. I've become very good at just knowing what the time is. 6pm! close enough.
Wish it had gps built in…
I wish they would connect to a Dexcom G6
Ehh.. no..no..no sorry but for that price it's not even great any of the other models out theyre are way better why pay all that if for less youll get that and if you know what you looking for maybe more
do a vs with garmin hybrid. they are direct competitions to these ……………
I would love this !!!
Which watch is it in the middle at 4:31 ?
When u eant to buy this but then realize it is not availble in your country
Yet another amazing review! Are we getting a Galaxy Watch Active2 review?
Nothing can beet the experience of a pebble smartwatch though
I love it.
oooh I like this watch …and the battery life is going in the right direction …Ill keep my eyes on fossil ,It might be going places!
Just had the pleasure of assisting your father Michael 🍻🙏🏾
Fossil has been a great innovator in the world of the Hybrid Smartwatches. Keeping as many classic watch features & design works well for Fossil.
I lost my pebble watch a little back and never found a replacement watch that felt that good. This is looking so right!
Sweet, I'll add this to my wishlist. Next to my nice Galaxy watch.
Hope there will be soon a comparison between Garmin vivomove style/ luxe and Fossil hybrid HR.Since both of them are very similar, so it would be quite interesting
Anyone know what this song is?
Will the steps/hr/sleep data sync with Apple Health? Or is it limited to just the Fossil app for iOS?
Once it comes out, please do a comparison of the Moto 360 gen3 and Fossil gen 5!
As someone who loved their Pebble Smartwatch, I’ve been WAITING for something like this. I’ll definitely be putting this on my Christmas list. Thanks again for the always straightforward and unbiased reviews. 🤙
If we have the option to swap the behavior to flicking your wrist for backlight and double-tapping to move the hands, i'm sold. Makes me feel bad for eyeing a successor for my kickstarter Pebble Time, but this is a rather nice watch.
Withings Steel HR owner here; this Fossil hybrid might be my next upgrade. Formerly owned a Moto 360 but the performance didn't age well. I'd prefer to stay away from full Wear OS watches because none have really caught my eye. This review has certainly moved this watch higher up on my list of ones to consider.
It would be nice if there was a widget for digital time.
The ticwatch pro is another competitor, and a good one at that….
$200 & 2 week battery life?Laughs in Amazfit fit Bip30 day battery, full color always-on display. $70 bucks.
Plus, I bet you can easily read the e-ink screen under direct sunlight, which is great compared to regular smart watches
Wonder how this compares to garmin's latest hybrids, the vivomove style/luxe…
I wish i had it :^(
$195 for this isn't bad at all. It's a handsome watch without any offensively obnoxious smart watch features that are always in your face…bugging you to always look at it like a needy significant-other.
Look promising! 🔥
I do a lot of casting to my TV, and it's nice to have the controls there on my watch. Does this watch do that?
They’re all overpriced
I love your channel so much, keep up the great work
Can someone tell me if it's waterproof please?
Is it good with IOS
A simple but classy watch i would buy for Christmas
I love hardware keys to control a smartwatch as opposed to a touchscreen/bezel/whatever. It makes me able to without looking change music while riding my bike without having to look at the watch for example. Since my battery on my Gear S3 died i'm using my first generation pebble again and gosh, for me it's in almost every way a better smartwatch due to the hardware controls and the lightness. I was going to replace my battery on my Gear S3 but right now i'm seriously considering just selling the gear and keep using my Pebble full time again.
Sadly there is no other company that makes a smartwatch like the Pebble. RIP 🙁
Gonna get my dad something like this once I get to save up some money!
Honestly this watch is beautiful, and even though I am a young person and would prefer a real smart watch, but i could see my dad wearing this kind of watch. I think they hit a sweet spot just like you said, the concept is very good.
I’m more convinced every day that this will replace my flatbit charge 2. Thanks for the review.
Make a video for the nextgen5!
great review. However, the Garmin Vivomove Style/Luxe is a smarter hybrid watch in my opinion. Would love to see a review
Owned it for 4 days and 79% battery life left now…pretty solid❤️
So it’s a pebble watch for people who wear normal watches.
What blows me away is how good the price is. With design, and the watch hands’ functionality, I was afraid this thing would be over $400.
I can see this doing very well in the market.
Hi, I think I’m gonna buy this watch but I just wanted to know some things as -Does it is robust and reliable ? (For sports)-Can you swim with it ?-Does it have a smart wake up? (I mean does it track your sleep cycle to wake you up at the best time?) Thx a lot!
Great video presentation!
I think I just misplaced my fossil sport, and this might be my next purchase.
Oops I've bought it.
Always like your reviews Michael, but Fossil must have the worst build reputation for any such device. Mind you, I'll probably still buy one.
They should have put solar charging in it so you dont have to charge it.
My biggest gripe is the constant buzzing with the fitness apps. You keep looking only being told to move etc. Can that be totally switched of? Great review. JD
I am trying to understand if this is better compared to the Garmin Vivo Move HR.
Can you recommend one over the other?
Thats such a nice watch but my arms are too skinny for the 42mm size, its such a bummer that you can't get it in a different size
It's the perfect 'smart'watch for me but sadly I can't buy this in my own country for the next 10 years and importing one from US would cost me almost x3 the money.
Does anybody know the size of the watch? I can't find anything on their website.
If my gold Pebble Time Steel dies, this might be a replacement option. I tried the Versa when Fitbit gave Pebblers a discount, but was still quite disappointed in comparison and went back to my PTS after a couple weeks. I just can't get away from the always on week+ battery life (in addition to my daily use of PebbleTasker)
Would it be smarter to buy this or a Fitbit versa 2? Since both of them have good battery life but the Fitbit versa is more like a smart watch.
Woah bro , that's racist 20 seconds in . Jesus
This watch comes closer to matching Pebble's functionality than any other smartwatch I've ever seen :O
I like this idea, but I'm just wondering what the working life of an e-ink display is.
Hi friends, any recommendations on a wear os smartwatch (or anything that syncs with Google Fit) with a small watch face that can fit on my significant other's wrist? I'm talking 40mm or even 38mm if possible.
Having a lot of trouble finding something that small.
The ones I see online now have circles on the face icons / notifications. The one in the video does not. Is this a previous version? Or are the icons customizable to have circles?
I wonder how this would compare to the Mykronoz Zetime hybrid smart watch?The Zetime has a colour screen with possibly similar battery life.The Fossil hybrid has an advantage of an always on notifications.
Still have my old Fossil Q hybrid Activist and work very well 🙂
