Tory Burch presents the ToryTrack Tory Wear OS smartwatch for $295

Any company that wants to make their own smartwatch these days will probably license their brand out to Fossil Group. Be it for fashion or sport, there's a Wear OS watch (and a few custom apps and watchfaces) for the purpose. One of those company, women's fashion label Tory Burch, has come out with a new line of smartwatches called the "Tory."

Fossil Women's Gen 4 Venture HR drops to an all-time low of $129, just in time for Valentine's Day

Fossil Women's Gen 4 Venture HR drops to an all-time low of $129, just in time for Valentine's Day

Fossil is one of the most prominent Wear OS manufacturers around, and, in my opinion, its latest offerings are among the sleekest, most stylish, and feature-packed smartwatches on the market. Whether you're shopping around for your next watch or you're searching for a last-minute Valentine's Day gift for that special someone, now is the perfect time to pick up a Fossil Gen 4 Venture. Several retailers, including Amazon, Best Buy, and Fossil, just slashed its price to a new all-time low of $129 — which represents a savings of $146 off the MSRP or roughly $30 off recent pricing.

Moto 360 (2019) review: The direct-to-DVD sequel of smartwatches

Moto 360 (2019) review: The direct-to-DVD sequel of smartwatches

The original Moto 360 was the first mainstream smartwatch with a round screen (ignoring the 'flat tire' at the bottom), which meant that despite its terrible internal hardware, it was definitely unique among a sea of ugly square smartwatches. Motorola followed it up with a sequel in 2015, and then in 2016, the company said it was done making wearables.

The new Moto 360 is almost entirely disconnected from its predecessor (it's manufactured by eBuyNow, not Motorola) and lacks the technological and design innovation that made the original watch so special. Much like a direct-to-video Disney sequel, there's not much to complain about, but there's also nothing unique or interesting to speak of.

Fossil Sport's Wear OS H update has some bugs, but Fossil is working on a fix

Most components of Wear OS are updated through the watch's Play Store, but there is still the occasional OS update. The last major release was Wear OS H, which included some new power management features and upgraded the core to Android 9 Pie.

Skagen Falster 2 Wear OS smartwatch is down to an incredibly low $69

Skagen Falster 2 Wear OS smartwatch is down to an incredibly low $69

Wear OS smartwatches may not be as popular as they used to, but they still offer enough features to please most people, especially when you can get them at a discount. The Skagen Falster 2 is a great option to consider, especially when it's down to just $69. It looks like a traditional watch but comes with all of Wear OS' features to assist you through your day. When it came out, the timepiece cost about $275, but it's now dropped to just $69. At this price, I wouldn't even look for an alternative if you're fine with using Wear OS.
