Fossil – Gen 4 Venture HR Smartwatch Review
A quick confession before we dive into this Fossil – Gen 4 Venture HR Smartwatch Review. I have never owned a SmartWatch before and honestly never understood why everyone raved about them. That is until I received my very own Fossil Gen 4 Venture HR Smartwatch in Rose Gold!
Technology is always surprising me with the many helpful features they offer these days. My Fossil Gen 4 Venture HR Smartwatch is like the assistant I never knew I hired. Not only is this smartwatch functional, its fashionable as well. I’m in love with this Rose Gold color and can pretty much match it with any outfit I wear.
I really like how easy this watch was to set up, after opening up the watch I did notice the battery was dead so I just hooked it up to the charger before using it. The watch took me through step by step on how to properly install and set up the watch. I do suggest you do this setup at home where your phone is connected to the wifi and ready.
Features I loved:
Personally, I loved how you could style the front of the watch where you would normally see the dials. They had a lot of options and even offer extra skins you just have to download and use. The watch was fashionable and perfectly blended in with all of my outfits. The handsfree features such as the SMS and notifications was a lifesaver at times! I didn’t have to whip out my phone from my purse to know who was texting me or check an important email.
There were times where I forgot I was wearing the watch which says to me it was pretty comfortable. I didn’t like how at times it did get a bit warm but after I wore it for a while I didn’t really notice a change. If I were going to purchase this smartwatch I would be gifting this to a teenager 15 years old or above. It’s easy to use and very easy to understand how to use. I could gift this to my mom and feel confident that she would enjoy using it.
