New Fossil Gen 5 Smartwatch Offers Better iPhone Compatibility, Calls From Wrist

Fossil on Monday announced its latest smartwatch, the Gen5, which offers better iPhone compatibility, in that it now allows iPhone users to make calls from the watch.

The Verge reports the new watch, which is available today and starts at $295, won’t actually get the iPhone-compatible phone call feature until this fall. However, that will make it the first Wear OS device to accomplish the feat. Wear OS watches before have been able to alert iPhone users to inbound calls, but Fossil’s latest watch will actually let you listen to and answer calls through the watch itself.
