I have several Fossil watches and I love them. The Fossil Gen 4 Venture HR Smartwatch with the Wear OS by Google app takes that love to a whole other level. Why, you ask? It’s rose gold! Just that simple. This smartwatch does everything you could want in a smartwatch, but it’s elegant. It looks great while recording information about your workout, including heart rate, in your gym clothes.
Here’s the best part, you can put on a beautiful dress and a pair of heels and it will look great while going out too. Besides, that’s why we do all those squats, right? My daughter and I just went to see The Nutcracker. We saw all these beautiful women, in gorgeous dresses, with unfortunate looking smartwatches that look like they belong at a gym, not a ballet. Not me though, my beautiful Fossil Gen 4 Venture Smartwatch in rose gold looked sophisticated with my holiday sweater and tracked all the steps that I walked while downtown.
If you like rose gold like me, this Fossil Smartwatch comes in 3 bands to choose. The face of the watch is rose gold, but if you aren’t into all that bling but still want to look nice, there is a grey silicon band with a simple rose gold face. If you like just a small amount of bling, you can choose the “blush” leather band. Then finally, if you prefer a lot of bling, like me, you can choose the “rose gold” band with sparkling stones and it looks gorgeous.
