Buying holiday gifts for friends and family members is never easy. But in my case, finding the right present for my daughter is downright stressful!
The reason is she never likes what I chose for her. In fact, as you can imagine many of my gifts end up deep in a drawer and are never worn or used.
This year I am thrilled to say I hit the jackpot – I got her the Fossil Gen 4 Venture HR Smartwatch 40mm Stainless Steel in Rose Gold. And though a professed watch hater in the past she wears it.
Like many young people her age ,my daughter resisted wearing a watch for years. Over the years I tried tempting her with character watches as a kid, designer ones as a teen – but she refused. She kept reminding me she can always check the time on her phone.
But this smartwatch with its three main features changed her mind about wearing a watch. So here are the reasons why the Fossil Venture HR Smartwatch is the IT Gift for techie fashionistas this season.
The Fossil Venture HR Smartwatch Design
As some of you might know by now, the rose gold is a hot color in today’s fashion world. From jewelry to clothes and accessories the pink peach hue is a huge hit.
So this watch, with its sleek 18mm stainless steel rose gold bracelet, and sparkly stones will fit right in with any outfit. Of course, you can also order additional leather bands to accessorize your wardrobe if you choose. My daughter ordered an extra tan leather strap that works with everything.
Surprisingly, with all these useful functions the watch size still works for most wrists -not too small or large. Using the Fossil app techie fashionistas can customize their watch. From the font, brightness, wake command, and gesture command to the watch face!
Important to mention is the fact that just like all smartphones this watch uses wifi and it needs nightly recharging if you use it continuously during the day.
The Fossil Venture HR Smartwatch as an organizing tool
Personally, I like the fact that This nifty watch keeps my daughter organized with Google assistant. It even alerts her quietly during her staff meetings to incoming e-mails, calls, text messages, and calendar events.
The watch works with Android and iOS and is easy to set up. Users can have install apps right from the watch for music, running, calculators and more. Moreover, the Bluetooth 4.1 LE connectivity and NFC technology help pair the watch to other devices with a simple one-touch pairing.
However, the features she likes best are the Google Pay and the Find My Phone features. With Google Pay, she can pay with a wave at almost anyplace that accepts credit cards. And the Find My Phone comes in handy in the morning when she can’t find her phone and needs to run out.
The Fossil Venture HR Smartwatch can help to a healthier you
Between the ability to track distances, calories burned, sleep activity, heart rate, exercise activity, steps taken, and stairs climbed this watch can motivate any owner to adopt a healthier lifestyle.
The watch comes with two activity apps Heart Points and Move Minutes (designed in collaboration with the American Heart Association and the World Health Organization ), incorporated GPS system and is water resistant so it can be submerged to up to 164’ of water.
If you are looking for a last minute gift for the tech lover woman in your life the watch with its innovative design, health features and organizations capabilities is a perfect choice.
So order online or head on to your closest Best Buy store to grab one before the holidays.
