New Fossil Wear OS watches are now able to make iPhone calls. Previously Fossil promised the feature for its Gen 5 smartwatches, and due to a software update, it is now available to users. Owners of Fossil Wear OS watches are able to pair their smartwatch with an Apple device, this makes one of the first instances of a Wear OS watch being compatible with iPhones.
The ability to make iPhone calls is the result of software that is owned exclusively by Fossil, so it will not be induced in similar smartwatches.
The new feature allows iPhone users to better integrate their watch with their mobile phone. The increased compatibility could result in more iPhone users purchasing the smartwatch.
