Once you own a fitness tracker or smartwatch, it’s hard to imagine that you ever exercised without one. Not only will a smartwatch or tracker keep tabs on your daily step count, it’ll also track your workouts, encourage you to move more, play your music, check your emails and much more besides. Add to this that most smartwatches also look the part and investing in one quickly becomes a no-brainer.
But, how do you know where to invest your cash? If you’re shopping for a new smartwatch, Amazon, as part of it’s two-day Prime Day sale, is offering a steep discount on Fossil’s Gen 5 touchscreen smartwatch to the tune of a 30% discount — that’s around £80 off.
Powered by Google Wear OS, Fossil’s Gen 5 smartwatch is compatible with iOS and Android smartphones and can last several days without a charge, thanks to its extended battery mode. Using built-in GPS tech, the Gen 5 will track your workouts while monitoring your heart rate in a sleek, swimproof design.
Interestingly, the Gen 5’s built-in speaker gives audible alerts to help you manage notifications, take phone calls, control music and use the Google Assistant to make your day easier. Using the touchscreen, you can also control music, customise your watch face, check emails and much more. Plus, using Google Pay, it doubles-up as a debit card making any transaction considerably speedier. Not bad, right? Shop yours here.
