OS by Google: Fossil - Gen 4 Venture HR Smartwatch

The new year is near, so my thoughts have turned towards my health and making changes on how I eat, sleep and move to make life better. As a mom of 3, sometimes it is easy to wear myself out and veg on the sofa for a little too long or make bad food choices. Life is busy and old habits can be hard to break.

This new year, I have the ultimate tool for keeping me on track for my health and fitness goals while looking pretty good in the process too. The OS by Google: Fossil – Gen 4 Venture HR Smartwatch in Rose Gold is nothing short of stunning to look at and it is so functional! This smartwatch is definitely making my resolutions and fitness goals easier to achieve.

The OS by Google: Fossil – Gen 4 Venture HR Smartwatch records exercise session info while recording heart rate, location and more. It is compatible with both iPhone and Android devices to help make every minute matter with health coaching and proactive help from the Google Assistant. With reminders to stay active and real metrics to show my progress, it is hard not to feel more motivated with my OS by Google: Fossil on my wrist!

The OS by Google: Fossil – Gen 4 Venture HR Smartwatch makes it easier than ever to stay active and live a healthier life. I love that with this watch you can let fashion meet function and customize your watch face. I also love that with the OS by Google: Fossil – Gen 4 Venture HR Smartwatch you have easy access to Google Pay, which makes paying on the go a breeze.
