Can I use this smart watch for making phone calls (like the Apple Watch)?

No and it looks stupid talking to your watch imho.

TLDR, if you have used Android watches in the past, this isn't that much different.

Also, not sure what Google see in Fossil when they bought them back in Jan. Apparently it's for some new tech that hasn't hit market yet.

The battery on these only last a day?

I tried one of these and can't find a single reason to spend more than the $50 for the Wear24, at least with the way AW currently works.

How? Unless I'm really out of the loop, Fit2 is just a fitness track, while Fossil's are proper smart watch?

That's pretty standard

It’s a smart watch. One of the few that can do Spotify offline

Is this a new development? I thought spotify offline isn't available for android wear. And by offline I mean the watch is able to download music and play it w/o being tethered to the watch.

I really like the Explorist HR model but my concern with these watches is the battery life. Very mixed reviews on this. Anyone have it that can comment on battery life?

Battery life is not an issue at all. I keep the screen off.

I've used this since launch and the battery has been fantastic. I start my day at 7am and at 10pm the battery life is around 30%. This is with AOD (always on display) and lift-to-wake active. I'm a light user, only using it for notifications.

One downside is that the watch ui is not as snappy as you might expect with the newer snapdragon processor(even though the newest variant is more about battery than speed).

I wonder if the battery is just as good in the Explorist HR model compared to the sport model. Anyone know?
