Can I buy a replacement charger for my Fossil or Skagen smartwatch?

Best answer: Yes. Keep in mind that Skagen is a subsidiary of Fossil. That means the newer smartwatches in both of their respective lineups, including the Fossil Gen 4 and 5 models as well as the Skagen Falster 2 and 3 models, will work with the same charger. There are third-party options, too.

How to charge up Fossil and Skagen smartwatches

As you may already be aware, Fossil is a major player in the smartwatch market. If you're a fan of its wearables, then it's likely that you may eventually branch out into its other lineups. It can be frustrating to have to keep track of so many different chargers for your smartwatches, but fortunately, the Fossil Gen 4 and 5 charger also works for the Skagen Falster 2 and 3.

If you ever decide to make the switch from one to the other, your charger will work for your new watch. While they work just the same, there are separate listings on Amazon for the Fossil smartwatch charger (opens in new tab) and the Skagen smartwatch charger (opens in new tab).

These replacement chargers will get the job done. Thanks to the rapid charging feature, you'll be able to reach 80% in under an hour. When you're getting ready in the morning, simply hook your Fossil or Skagen smartwatch up to the charger. By the time you're ready to head out the door, your wearable should be at or close to a full charge. As you may know, Wear OS devices usually get about 24 hours of battery life. Luckily the rapid feature makes daily charging a bit less painful.

Maybe you'd prefer to charge your smartwatch on a charging stand. There are plenty of third-party options available if you're comfortable straying from the standard proprietary chargers. This one costs less and is compatible with a wide range of watches that fall under the Fossil umbrella. Whether you're sporting the Fossil Sport, Carlyle, Julianna, or Garrett, this convenient charging stand will juice it right up. It also works with the Skagen Falster 2 and 3, along with a long list of other wearables from Fossil, including Michael Kors, Diesel, and Kate Spade.

You might think that when you buy a third-party product, you'll have to sacrifice certain features. The good news is that the Powerhill charging stand (opens in new tab) gives you the premium experience that you're accustomed to. That's right, you'll still have the glorious rapid charging feature with this product. You'll have the same sturdy magnetic connection when your watch is charging on the stand, so you don't have to worry about it falling off. Plug the USB cord into your power source of choice and place your watch on the charging stand. It's that simple!
