Fossil is not ranked among the world's top five smartwatch vendors
, but something tells us it would be if the fashion brand consistently charged less money for its arguably stylish and objectively feature-packed Wear OS devices. It's not that the Fossil Sport
and Gen 4
lines are overpriced, but limited-time deals
offered once every few weeks
or so substantially improve the mass appeal of these not-so-popular Apple Watch
Typically available for $275 a pop, the heart rate-monitoring, location-tracking timepieces can be purchased at a decent $75 discount from their manufacturer's official US e-store right now. But if you don't mind choosing from a smaller selection of models and colors, Amazon will hook you up with a trio of much better deals, most likely in limited quantities.
Two Fossil Gen 4 Explorist variants are up for grabs at a massive 45 percent off their list price (equating to no less than $124.64 in savings), while a single Fossil Sport model goes $120.98 (or 44 percent) off in a smoke/blue combination. The former two watches are available in an elegant silver/brown combo with a stylish leather band or in an all-black color scheme with a silicone strap.
The Fossil Sport also comes with a "sporty" silicone band, standing out from the Gen 4 Explorist primarily thanks to a smaller 43mm aluminum case and a newer Snapdragon Wear 3100 processor
under the hood. The Snapdragon Wear 2100-powered Fossil Gen 4 Explorist, meanwhile, features a 45mm case made from premium stainless steel, which nicely complements the interchangeable 22mm band.
Water-resistant and covered by a two-year warranty, the Fossil Sport and Gen 4 share a lot of key specs and features, from the aforementioned heart rate monitoring capabilities and built-in GPS chips to Google Pay support, customizable dials, the same comprehensive system of showing notifications from both iPhones and Android handsets, and "all-day" battery life.
If you're not a fan of these three ultra-affordable models, it's worth pointing out that there are also others you can get on Amazon for lower prices than over at Fossil. A "smoke/black" Sport, for instance, is $108 cheaper than usual, while silver and blue Gen 4 Explorist variants can be had at $112 and $108 discounts respectively.
