If you prefer a watch that runs Google's Wear OS software rather than Samsung's Tizen, an excellent watch to consider is the new Fossil Gen 5E. The 5E offers more of a classically styled timepiece than the Galaxy Active 2, while still bringing some helpful smarts along with it.

Fossil has been making some of the best performing and best-looking smartwatches for a few years now, and the Gen 5E continues that trend. These stainless steel watches come in two sizes and multiple colors to help get that perfect look — but these watches are about more than just looks. You'll find plenty of sensors inside to help you reach your fitness goals, and when you want to take a call or access your Google Assistant, there's a microphone and speaker too.
