What if you want a smartwatch running Wear OS by Google then Fossil Gen 5 is the best fit. Fossil makes watches that look, feel and work like watches. With Gen 5 Carlyle HR, the American watch brand has delivered one of the best looking smartwatch yet. At Rs 22,995, Fossil Gen 5 is cheaper than other smarter smartwatches and comes with a great design. It’s rotating crown is really useful to navigate Wear OS and 1GB RAM and 8GB storage makes it really smooth. However, the Wear OS experience leaves a lot to be desired.
