If you need a wearable accessory that doesn’t look or feel like a bulky device, you might want to consider the Fossil Sport. This smartwatch has a versatile design, extended battery life, and it comes with great tech features, including fitness tracking and heart rate monitoring.

According to our sister site PCMag.com, Fossil Sport is one of the best smartwatches for everyday use. It doesn’t come cheap at $275, but this device features the latest Google Wear OS hardware and software, coordinates with many wardrobe items, and offers accurate health stats if you want to count your steps or check your heart rate. The Fossil Sport is available on Amazon and Fossil’s website.

The Fossil Sport might seem like an athletic accessory, however, its minimal design works for casual or formal attire: You can definitely wear this sleek wearable to brunch, the gym, and work. If you want to customize your Fossil Sport, you can choose from 28 different watch straps, which are $25 each and sold separately.

Unlike other smartwatches, the Fossil Sport is easy to use: There are three controls on the side of the smartwatch, including a rotating crown. The rotating crown will take you through the menu and notifications, while the other two buttons can be set to open your preferred apps, including Google Fit and Spotify.

Love working out? The Fossil Sport can help accurately track your steps and monitor your heart rate throughout the day. Whether you’re jogging, walking, or lifting weights, the Fossil Sport will keep you posted on health stats and your mileage. However, if you need more advanced fitness tracking and ECG readings, you might want to consider another smartwatch since Fossil Sport covers the basics in both areas. Additionally, this smartwatch is water-resistant up to 5 ATM, so you don’t have to worry about damaging it in the shower or pool.

One more important feature to note is the Fossil Sport’s battery life: Fossil said the watch can last roughly 24 hours, however, it might require additional charging if you use it for 12 or more hours. Thankfully though, if the smartwatch battery drains to 10 percent, it will go into Battery Saver Mode, a Wear OS feature that gives the battery two extra days of power.
