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.
