The Fossil Wellness App Rollout Megathread from WearOS

Here is the official FAQ section from Fossil that gives more info on the app


  1. Have still not received the update. The watch shows the software is up to date. Moreover, the app will come automatically after the update or i have to manually install it from somewhere.

  2. Hey I got the update but I can’t figure out the cardio fitness reading mine has stopped at 40%. Why so? The message reads as" 40% of the way to your cardio fitness reading "

  3. My Fossil Gen 5 watch is not syncing correctly with the Google Fit app on my IPhone. The steps and calories do not match. The values are different on the watch and when I update the information to Google Fit it shows different numbers.

    Do you no what the problem could be?

  4. @Roaming Gadgets : What is the version of this Update (in the system parameter) ?
    My Fossil Gen 5 made an Update some days ago, but I don’t see any change (my watch just seems to be more reactive).

  5. I really like this new Wellness app and now use my Fossil watch more than my Galaxy Watch 3. The problem with other watches, including those that use Samsung Health, is the amount of data entry required and how to use the data afterwards. Wellness+Google Fit allows me to easily start an exercise routine without going through so many menus, monitor my sleep, track my heart rate and step count with a very hands-off approach. Pair it with a smartscale that autosyncs weight change to Google Fit and you have a very automated and hassle free system that collects USEFUL data. Battery improvement is just a bonus.

  6. Thanks man, but I still not understanding the use of Wellness app and the differences between Google fit and Wellness. Basically Google fit and Wellness app work together? If a do sports it’s better Google Fit or Wellness? And for the sleep tracking, the watch automatically detects when you are sleeping?

  7. So if you want to track walking activity, what do you suggest? Track with wellness or google fit? Any differences you can find?
