Fossil Gen 5 Amazon sale

The single best Wear OS device you can get today is the Fossil Gen 5 smartwatch. It offers solid performance, premium build quality, customizability, and now the device sees another solid sale on Amazon.

The device usually retails for $295, but right now, you can purchase the Fossil Gen 5 for only $172 before tax. That’s more than 40% off the smartwatch’s retail cost. Confusingly, the device shows that it is on sale for $215 on Amazon’s sales page. Rest assured, Amazon throws in an extra $43 off in an exclusive “extra savings” offer during checkout.

Unfortunately, Amazon doesn’t offer these extra savings toward the leather or metal strap versions of the watch. Thankfully, each device comes with the same sensors and features, including a GPSheart rate sensor, and NFC for Google Pay. Plus, with that extra money you save, you’ll be able to buy whatever custom watch strap you want.

We don’t know how long this sale will last, so you better jump on it before it’s too late. Just keep in mind the device most likely won’t arrive until after Christmas, so don’t bet on this being a part of your last-minute holiday shopping.
