While not always the most advanced they served as an option for users. However issues like software support and platform inconsistencies eventually took their toll.

With tech giants like Samsung and Google prioritizing their ecosystems it has become increasingly challenging, for third party manufacturers using Wear OS. While Mobvoi and OnePlus are stepping up to fill the void both face challenges in trying to replicate what Fossil provided.
