The last time I wore a watch was when I worked in the neonatal unit at my local hospital. It was basic at best, and an accessory I never wore outside of work. When smartwatches emerged, I found myself intrigued by the technology that fused everything I love about my smartphone with those crucial fitness activity features. Fossil recently introduced their new Gen 4 Venture HR Smartwatch, and it is so much more than a pretty “face.”
