Modern premium smartwatches are incredibly complex and feature-filled, but they tend to be quite disappointing when it comes to battery life. With even premium devices such as the Apple Watch series offering just about a day or so of battery life, many may want to avoid such devices in order to not have to deal with charging another gadget every day. There's also the problem of the design of most smartwatches, which tend to look a bit bland; it's essentially a screen on your wrist, devoid of the classic styling and mechanical engineering that goes into a traditional wristwatch.
The Fossil Machine Gen 6 Hybrid is the latest in the company's range of hybrid smartwatches, and has an e-ink display and battery life of two weeks per charge. The smartwatch works well with both iOS and Android through the companion app, which can be used to change the wallpaper and widgets for the e-ink display, among other things.
There is also Alexa support, as well as excellent health and fitness tracking. Although the smartwatch does feel a bit heavy, the good looks and functionality make this an excellent smartwatch for the price.
