SOS, we desperately need some new devices to come out
Let's be honest, Fossil gen 5 is a great watch but it's been already 2 whole years in the market. Then of course you have the Oppo watch, the Moto 360 3rd gen and of course the "smartwatch killer" Ticwatch Pro 3 GPS... but, that's all we can get?

Should I wait for a watch that comes out with Wear OS 3?

Speaker, mic, NFC, GPS... what more could you ask for?
I have only had it for less than 24 hours and barely used it. It's my first smart watch so I am new to this. It seems slower than I would like but then again I am still learning how to use it.

Thank You Fossil
I bought my Fossil Gen 5 in May 2020 and loved it, despite a few issues... 1. First, my charging ring fell off and they fixed it (and gave me a new watch band as a freebie).
