There's a lot to love about Fossil's smartwatches with our Fossil Gen 6 review noting good battery life with quick charging as a major strength. While the software didn't impress at the time, it has since been updated with Wear OS 3 bringing with it some much-needed improvements helping the Fossil Gen 6 to cement its place as one of the best Android smartwatches. This watch came in two sizes with the larger model using a 22mm band and the smaller model using 18mm.

To make things a bit more complicated, the newer Fossil Gen 6 Wellness Edition uses a 20mm band. And finally, the Fossile Gen 6 Hybrid uses a larger still 24mm band. Make sure to only buy a watch band that supports the right size for your watch.

If you're looking for a metal watch band that's easy to wear and is a good match for your watch's finish, the Stainless Steel mesh band from Fossil is a great pick. It's easy to put on your watch and comes in both 18mm and 22mm sizes so it will work with both sizes of the original Gen 6 watch.

If you’re looking for silicone, the Barton Elite Silicone watch band is a good pick with a lot of color options. The clasp is stainless steel so you don't need to worry about it breaking. It's also nice that this watch is offered in a wide range of sizes so you can get it for any of Fossil's Gen 6 models.
