Ladies Holiday Pick: Fossil Gen 4 Venture HR Smartwatch
I’ve never owned a smartwatch. I’ve been very “old school” with my chunky gold men’s watch that I’ve had for years! Actually – I bought myself my “old” chunky gold watch for my 32nd birthday with my own money. I had saved up $350 for it and was proud as punch to fulfill a goal of mine. I still have it and wear it now more of like an accessory. I don’t use it for time, I use my phone. And truthfully – there aren’t ANY bells and whistles about my watch. It’s there strictly for arm candy.
Well – now my arm candy and my technology needs can go hand and hand. Say hello to my newest love for my wrist – Fossil Gen 4 Venture HR Smartwatch. It’s (in a word) EVERYTHING. I never knew how bad I wanted a smartwatch until I had a smartwatch. Does that make sense? I love it and I really see why people fall in love with their smartwatches.
So what is so amazing about the Fossil Gen 4 Venture HR Smartwatch that makes me so happy and wondering how I went this long without it?
I’ve really been committed to fitness since the summer. I’ve been running and power walking when I can. I’ve been eating healthier and really setting some fitness goals for myself. I don’t like to go by weight, but I go by feel in my clothing and see how far I’ve come with it comes to endurance when I’m working out. I want to be able to run a 10K without stopping. I recently just did a 5K on Thanksgiving without stopping and I felt so proud of myself! When I accomplish something, it makes me want to go further.
With the Fossil Gen 4 Venture HR Smartwatch it’s easier to be healthy with the Google Fit app’s two new activity trackers—Heart Points and Move Minutes—which were designed in collaboration with the American Heart Association and the World Health Organization. These evidence-based metrics measure activity intensity, and smarter health coaching makes your fitness goals more achievable by motivating you to stay active throughout your day, everyday. This smartwatch is also swim-proof and able to play stored music on your runs. I personally love that it’s swim-proof – as you know we’re a HUGE swimming family, so I have just started to dip my toes slowly back into the water. I’m not fast by any means, but I’m in and for me right now, that’s all that counts!

The rose gold band blends with exercise wear at the gym or office clothing when you go to work. And it’s ROSE GOLD!! I mean – my phone is rose gold. My office rose gold. It’s just perfect for the fashion side of me!!!
And everyone’s been asking – and yes – it’s compatible with iPhone/iOS and Android.
