  8. Brandon Mulkey on October 1, 2021 at 8:16 am

  9. Paul Williams on October 1, 2021 at 8:18 am

    Is there a phone app to view the data or just view on the watch?

  10. Siddharth Satam on October 1, 2021 at 8:20 am

    Hey I got the update but I can’t figure out the cardio fitness reading mine has stopped at 40%. Why so? The message reads as" 40% of the way to your cardio fitness reading "

  11. Jenthe Huysmans on October 1, 2021 at 8:29 am

    Do I have to activate the sleep tracking or does it activate automatically?

  12. Josè Alberto Chacon Leombruno on October 1, 2021 at 8:37 am

    Thanks man, but I still not understanding the use of Wellness app and the differences between Google fit and Wellness. Basically Google fit and Wellness app work together? If a do sports it’s better Google Fit or Wellness? And for the sleep tracking, the watch automatically detects when you are sleeping?

  14. cbgti67 on October 1, 2021 at 8:40 am

    @Roaming Gadgets : What is the version of this Update (in the system parameter) ?
    My Fossil Gen 5 made an Update some days ago, but I don’t see any change (my watch just seems to be more reactive).

  15. Berozgaar Tuber on October 1, 2021 at 8:41 am

  18. Smeet Panchal on October 1, 2021 at 8:50 am

    So if you want to track walking activity, what do you suggest? Track with wellness or google fit? Any differences you can find?

  19. Josip Bozic on October 1, 2021 at 8:53 am

    You sleep like a baby..

  20. sear hakeemi on October 1, 2021 at 8:55 am

    My Fossil Gen 5 watch is not syncing correctly with the Google Fit app on my IPhone. The steps and calories do not match. The values are different on the watch and when I update the information to Google Fit it shows different numbers.

    Do you no what the problem could be?

  21. Michael Harvey on October 1, 2021 at 8:55 am

    I really like this new Wellness app and now use my Fossil watch more than my Galaxy Watch 3. The problem with other watches, including those that use Samsung Health, is the amount of data entry required and how to use the data afterwards. Wellness+Google Fit allows me to easily start an exercise routine without going through so many menus, monitor my sleep, track my heart rate and step count with a very hands-off approach. Pair it with a smartscale that autosyncs weight change to Google Fit and you have a very automated and hassle free system that collects USEFUL data. Battery improvement is just a bonus.

  22. Raghav Tandon on October 1, 2021 at 8:56 am

    Have still not received the update. The watch shows the software is up to date. Moreover, the app will come automatically after the update or i have to manually install it from somewhere.

  23. Keshav Tangri on October 1, 2021 at 8:57 am

    Haven’t received the update yet. Using gen5
