Should you buy the Samsung Galaxy Watch3 or the Fossil Gen 5?

Samsung's new smartwatch on the block is the Galaxy Watch3, featuring the company's latest hardware and software packed into a traditional-looking watch. However, at a starting price of $400 (with configurations that make it almost $500), it's not an impulse purchase. There's also the competition to consider, namely the Fossil Gen 5.

Latest Wear OS update for Fossil Gen 5 and other watches has screwed up Google Pay

Latest Wear OS update for Fossil Gen 5 and other watches has screwed up Google Pay

It's fair to say that Wear OS has been stagnating lately. Google announced a few updates for its smartwatch operating system last week, but they're more like minor improvements than the major overhaul many feel the platform needs. Fossil and its subsidiaries make a lot of Wear OS watches, and now the company is taking matters into its own hands with an exclusive update that adds new health-tracking capabilities, a Phone app tile, and more.

Get the Fossil Gen 5 Garrett for $179 ($116 off) on Amazon

Get the Fossil Gen 5 Garrett for $179 ($116 off) on Amazon

The Fossil Gen 5 is one of the best Wear OS smartwatches you can buy, thanks to a stylish design and solid hardware let down only by Qualcomm's lackluster support for the platform and the inherent bugginess of Wear OS. The Garrett styling of the Gen 5 has the same hardware as the regular model, only wrapped up in a fancy new exterior. The usual $295 price tag is quite high, but if you grab it at Amazon now you can get it for the much more palatable $179 ($116 off).

Fossil's fifth-gen smartwatches showcase Wear OS at its best (Update: four months later)

Fossil's fifth-gen smartwatches showcase Wear OS at its best (Update: four months later)

Google's Wear OS platform is in a bit of a weird place. The operating system itself is still being periodically updated with new features and improvements, like the Tiles function that was released in May, but the third-party app library is still minimal, and Qualcomm has been slow to improve the underlying hardware. Still, Wear OS isn't going anywhere, and the closest thing to a flagship watch is the new fifth-generation Fossil Q lineup.

The Fossil Gen 5 for $169 ($126 off) is the best smartwatch deal in months (Update: Sale back on)

The Fossil Gen 5 smartwatch is the best Wear OS device you can buy right now, even if that isn't a terribly high bar to climb. However, the original $295 pricetag made it a difficult recommendation, especially when Samsung's Galaxy Watch Active was $100 less. Now the tables have turned — the new Watch Active2 costs $300, and now the Fossil Gen 5 is just $169.00.
