Where should you buy?
This mostly comes down to preference as there is no major difference between purchasing the charger from Amazon or Fossil, aside from the fact that the charger will be eligible for repairs directly from the manufacturer. Keep in mind that Amazon does not offer this service.
If you're seeking a more affordable alternative, you might be disappointed. Unfortunately, there aren't any cheaper options that will provide you with the same level of quality. While $30 may seem like a lot to spend on a charger, it's worth it to know that you're not wasting money on a cheap knockoff that will eventually stop working.
How does the Fossil Sport charger work?
If you're a first-time Fossil Sport owner, charging your new smartwatch is simple. All you'll need to is plug the USB cord into a power source, then connect the screen of your Sport to the magnetic pad. Your watch will charge automatically.
You'll be happy to know that the Fossil Sport can reach a full charge in a little over an hour. The rapid charging feature allows you to reach 80% in just one hour. This is especially useful for those who require their Fossil Sport for work or physical activity and need to get going as soon as possible.
Depending on how you use your smartwatch, the battery life can vary. However, the typical lasting time for the Fossil Sport battery is 24 hours. You can squeeze an additional two days out of it when it's in low-power mode.
