Gen 4 watches are terrible. Picked one up during their Christmas sales for $190. It so slow and laggy. My 5 year old half dead Pebble Steel works much better. I'm returning the watch.

The Wear OS H update was just released for this watch and it adds several battery saver options + improved performance.

To those experiencing lag, it can be fixed. I have a Sport and a Gen 4 and they both run great after removing apps that aren't supposed to be there as explained here:

All Fossil watches have poorly configured factory images which is incredibly disappointing, but the good news is it can be fixed. At this price this is a steal.

The Sport is very light and it's without a doubt the most comfortable smartwatch I've tried.

Thanks OP. Been waiting for a good drop on this model for awhile now. Still bitter about my wear24 dying on me even though I didn't wear it that often.

I literally just finished doing this and was coming here to post what I did.

I was pretty underwhelmed with the watch after a day of playing with it and was ready to give up on it. But after these steps the thing that was lagging the most by far (Google Assistant) is now pretty darn snappy.



A few things I'd add though:

- My disabled list was a bit different from the hackaday guy, so I kept a few on just to be on the safe side. Below in quotes is the list of what I disabled and kept with a bonus (command copied in front) so just copy / paste 1 by 1.

- After that I also went into Settings > App & Notifications > App Info > System Apps and disabled the following from there also:
com.fossil.charge.darter (Charging screen)
Diesel
E-Label (App to display regulatory info https://play.google.com/store/apps/deta ... l&hl=en_CA)
Keep (Google Keep to takes notes)
Misfit
MK Access
Mobvoi account
Puma Apps
Sogou Maps
Tic Exercice
Tic Health
TicRanking
TicStore
And the 5 or 6 apps with Chinese characters
Finally I deactivated the motion Gestures, oh and also check for updates after you finished restarting from a previous update because for whatever reason it doesn't just go straight to latest version.



Cheers !

Most of the reviews I've read rank this as one of the best WearOS watches on the market. Many sites have it listed at the top.

Yeah. They were mixed. But if you google "best wear os watch" these are on every list, mostly in the top position.

After reading the reviews, I tried to purchase one, but the size/color I want is sold out now...
