I already know my resolution for 2019: to become healthier by setting both fitness and personal goals. This year, I struggled with fitness because I didn’t have an easy way to track the amount of walking I did. I tried an app, but I’d forget to update. This week, when I headed to Best Buy, I was told about a device that will help me in my journey. It’s a smartwatch that tracks distance walked, calories burned, heart rate and sleep activity. I couldn’t wait to hear more!
The Fossil – Gen 4 Venture HR Smartwatch 40mm Stainless Steel in Rose Gold is beautiful and functional! The rose gold color and diamond-like like bling make the watch super elegant and a great accessory to your daily wardrobe. It has a rechargeable battery and comes with a wireless charging dock.
The 18mm stainless steel watch band ensures durability — I loved hearing that the smartwatch is water-resistant against submersion in up to 164′ of water!
I also loved the fact that you can digitally change the watch’s face. I simply went to the settings in the Wear OS app, which is available for both Android and iPhone, and choose from several watch faces. It was so quick and easy to switch to the watch face I wanted.
The required Wear OS app was easy to download and install. You then sync your Google accounts to receive emails, social media notifications, access to your calendar, SMS messages and even check the weather right from your smartwatch! I appreciate the fact that I can get more done and maximize my time with more glanceable, easy to manage notifications, with smart replies to respond quickly on the go.
The Fossil – Gen 4 Venture HR Smartwatch works with Google Fit app’s two new activity trackers—Heart Points and Move Minutes—which were designed in collaboration with the American Heart Association and the World Health Organization. It tracks distance, calories burned, activity, sleep activity, heart rate, steps taken and even floors climbed.
This smartwatch is sold at Best Buy and would make a great gift for anyone on your Christmas list this holiday season!
