Both the Carlyle HR and Juliana HR smartwatches are now in their 5th iteration, as announced by Fossil today. They come with a built-in speaker, a longer battery life thanks to smart battery modes, more storage space, and a Snapdragon 3100 processor as standard features.
We recently published an article in which we discussed a selection of Fossil watches that have been banned by the FCC. Some of these have recently been made public by the corporation. The 4th generation of technologies developed by Fossil Group included a heart rate sensor, GPS, Near Field Communication, and water resistance of at least 3 ATM. All of this and more is brought to you by the 5th generation.
Carlyle HR and Julianna HR are the names given to the two new watches. The first is available in three 44mm (12mm thick) incarnations, which are known as Smoke Stainless Steel, Black Silicone, and Dark Brown Leather, respectively. The more feminine Julianna is also available in three 44mm (12mm) variants, which include blush leather, rose-gold tone stainless steel, and black stainless steel.

All of these come standard with 8 gigabytes of storage space, 1 gigabyte of random access memory, and a Snapdragon 3100 processor from Qualcomm. The only smartwatch the company had ever made before was the Fossil Sport, which had the most recent Snapdragon chipset.
The Gen 5’s come equipped with a speaker, which gives you the ability to do some cool things. You are able to ask Google Assistant on your wrist to play music, provide you with the weather forecast, or do about anything else you can think of. The watches may also be used to hear the response rather than simply seeing it; answer calls directly from the wrist; listen to your favorite tunes; and perform a number of other functions.
It is common knowledge that Wear OS watches have a notoriously short battery life. The most recent iteration of Fossil watches includes a feature that the company refers to as “smart battery modes,” which helps alleviate part of the problem. In their default settings, the gadgets are able to stay running for approximately 24 hours. If you turn on the intelligent battery modes, they will assist you in extending the amount of time that your battery will last for several days. This comes with a naturally reduced level of functionality.
Aside from that, all of the most recent models of Fossil watches are equipped with all of the 4th generation features. This has a 1.3-inch AMOLED touchscreen with a pixel resolution of 328ppi, built-in GPS, activity tracking that includes heart rate monitoring, notifications (text, email, social media, and app alerts), programmable dials, Google Pay, and additional features. In addition to that, they are watertight (3 ATM).
The cost of purchasing both Carlyle HR and Julianna HR is $295 in United States currency. All of these are compatible with Android TM 4.4 and later (with the exception of the Go edition), as well as iOS 9.3 and later. You may purchase them on both the official website of the company and Amazon (links below).
