Fossil latest update for Gen 5 dumps a handful of watch faces

The Fossil Gen 5 wearable users are ready to receive a new update. However, the fresh build isn’t something that will excite the users as it does not bring any latest software. In fact, it eliminates almost half of its watch face options and adds only two new faces in return.

The update for the Fossil app is live on the Play Store. From the 55 variations present in the Gen 5 smartwatches, the update drops 33 out of them. This leaves the variations to less than half of the original at 22. Though the new version does add two modern faces— “Fitness Digital” and “Dashboard Digital.” Thus, after flashing the update, the total watch faces will stand at 24. To know which faces the company has dropped, look at the list below.

  • Big Tic
  • Blue
  • Candice Huffine
  • Colorist
  • Cory Richards

These changes are likely to affect all the Gen 5 models including Gen 5, Gen 5E, and Gen 5 LTE. You can install the update from Play Store and see the changes on your respective wearable. In case you were using any of the faces that are removed, the update will push back to its default appearance. Alternatively, some users are also getting a message explaining the removal as “optimization.”
