Fossil is making some of the best Wear OS smartwatches on the market right now, and the Fossil Gen 5 is among them. One thing that's held it back from being at the top of the pack has been its price, but this deal on the Fossil Gen 5 cuts 31% off that price tag.

At $205 with this deal, it's actually one of the more affordable Wear OS smartwatches. That's quite a steal given its design and all that the Fossil Gen 5 is capable of.

The smartwatch body is made of stainless steel, and it comes with a stainless steel strap. It houses a large, 1.28-inch, round AMOLED display that's bright and vibrant. The case also has two shortcut buttons and a spinnable crown. These let you get to the apps you'll use the most and navigate a bit easier than touch alone would allow.

On the bottom of the frame, there's a heart-rate sensor. That's makes the Fossil Gen 5 ready to track your activities, whether they be running on a trail or swimming laps. It's ready for that swim, too, thanks to 3ATM of water resistance. Built-in GPS can also track your run distance.

The Fossil Gen 5 is also speedy for a Wear OS watch thanks to the Snapdragon Wear 3100 chipset with 1GB of RAM. In our testing, it was highly responsive. It also manages a full day of batter life and can top up to 80% in just an hour with quick charging. It even features NFC, so you can use Google Pay with just the watch.

For a capable, stylish Wear OS smartwatch, the Fossil Gen 5 is a great pick.
