Fossil Wear OS Gen 5 Models Are Available Now. I wonder if my Gen 4 Fossil Sport will ever get the "sport" mode update that is supposed to make battery life better when fitness tracking. If I use fitness tracking more than 45 minutes in one day my watch dies (or goes into time-only battery saver mode) by like 9pm.

Biggest difference is a speaker?

I have all fitness stuff turned off and I could go 36+ hours on a battery.

The speaker and the "modes" that let you pick and choose which sensors are active. Also sounds like there's a mode that will handle fitness tracking without being so hard on the battery.

Not sure. Which watch do you have? It's probably a security update...

The sport is gen 4 with the 3100 Snapdragon. I have it and I have not had a system update in a while. What are your stats after the update? (Settings > System > About > Versions)

Do you have the new battery modes? I saw on Reddit some people with the Gen 3 were getting the update that includes those.

Just Battery Saver and turn on Batter Saver at 10%. I think I have always had those. Battery Saver is basically all smart functions off.

I got Jocelyn a Fossil Gen 4 on sale for $110 after tax. She's very excited for it. Tomorrow will be the first day with it (assuming she remembers to put it on). I disabled Fit to maximize her battery.

Something I dislike about the Gen 4 and would prevent me from getting one, is the lack of edge to edge screen. They gave up that for a sunlight boost sensor. I would much rather not have the extra screen setting and have a nicer display. This is all she knows though so she won't notice or care.

I think Gen 5 has the same black ring.

Evidently mine isn't? I'll have to look into it tomorrow. I do not have the new processor.

Does your explorist have the black ring? I thought we had the same explorist just different styles?

Look back in this thread. You have a explorist gen 4 according to that, same as me. Gen 4 (for the explorist) doesn't have the new processor.
