Christmas is rapidly approaching! This year, the exciting new gadget that I'm asking for is a Fossil Gen 5 smartwatch. The Gen 5 isn't perfect, especially in the realm of battery life. However it's sleeker than the Apple Watch in my opinion, and it costs significantly less. I know that Apple limits smartwatches from other brands when paired to an iPhone, but it's a compromise I'm willing to make for a watch that excites me much more than Apple's offerings.
Why not an Apple Watch?
Due to the fact that most of the people reading this are fairly tech savvy, I think I need to clearly present my motives for not pairing an Apple Watch with my iPhone 8. Here's a list of reasons why I like the Fossil Gen 5 better than the Apple Watch Series 4 and 5.
If you don't agree with these reasons, I understand. However, after briefly using an Apple Watch on display at Target, I can't say I'm particularly interested in buying one.
With that being said, the Apple Watch is still a great device. In fact, it's amazing! It's just not for me.
What does this have to do with Tectra?
Alright, I know. I haven't actually talked about the main purpose of this post. Due to the fact that I am going to be getting a Wear OS watch soon, I think it would be cool if I made some Wear OS apps and published them on Google Play. Do you think this is a good idea?
