Fossil Gen 5 loses half of the dials

Whether you love having as much health information as possible on your smartwatch or just want the time on the main watch face, Wear OS always had the perfect option for you. But soon the situation could change and the choice reduced. In fact, the new update adds two new dials: Fitness Digital e Dashboard Digital. But it removes as many as 33, going from a total of 55 to just only 24 with the new update.

Less than half of the options, as 9to5Google researchers noted when analyzing the Fossil app update on the Play Store. And even if not yet confirmed, it seems that this reduction in options comes to all Fossil Gen 5, Gen 5E and Gen 5 LTE. The quadrants that will be removed are:

  • Big Tic
  • Blue
  • Candice Huffine
  • Colorist
  • Compass
  • Cory Richards
  • Darryl Westly
  • Defender
  • Hector
  • Flip Digital
  • Fred
  • Grant
  • KJ Apa
  • Magic 8-Ball
  • Mandy Moore
  • McKinney
  • Mechanical Digital
  • Men’s Fashion Digital
  • Minimal Dressy
  • Minimalist Analog
  • Mood
  • Movember
  • Movember Analog
  • Movember Digital
  • No Icon Digital
  • P-51
  • Rainbow
  • Robot
  • Roulette
  • Sail Dial
  • Scarlette Shimmer
  • Speedometer
  • Turn Tabl

If you are using one of these applications, Fossil will use the default watch face directly. You can choose another one, 24 alternatives aren’t too bad. But having fewer options always seems like a loss to the user. We’ll just have to get used to it.
