    Fossil, could you provide more information about usage and what actions are the biggest drains on the battery. My watch has never lasted five months on a single battery, and I'm a bit disappointed and don't want to be so wasteful as to replace the battery every month or two. What causes the battery to run out faster or last longer? Does the battery last longer if a Bluetooth connection is maintained with your phone, or does the watch continually search for a connection (and wear out the battery) if your phone is not near it or has Bluetooth turned off? Does using the watch to send a command to your phone use more battery power than displaying an alert received from the phone? Thank you in advance for any further information!

    In case this feedback is useful to Fossil it other customers: I really wish the watch were rechargeable. I loved it at first, but after a couple of years and a couple dozen batteries, I regret buying this model (the Fossil Q Grant hybrid smart watch). It looks great, though, and now I just want to unsync it with my phone and use it as a regular watch but the battery still dies in a matter of weeks. Any suggestions?

    The issue mentioned by Chris is exactly what I'm facing with my Q hybrid. I've tried using it at a bare minimum even then it just lasted for 3 months. It'll be really helpful if Fossil could suggest a rechargeable battery
