What’s the Difference?

Fossil Gen 4 Venture vs Gen 5 Juliana Features Compared

  1. Fossil Gen 4 Venture vs Gen 5 Juliana: Design

  2. There’s no much difference in the design between these two. Although, the Gen 4 Venture is a more compact wear, this is good for individuals with smaller wrist. But then, the Gen 5 Juliana is slimmer, and this no doubt leaves it with a more commanding and charming appearance, you also get to see more at a glance.

    Other than the slight difference in size, these two have quite same appearance.

  3. Fossil Gen 4 Venture vs Gen 5 Juliana: Storage/Media

  4. Both the Gen 5 and 4 come with significant storage space that enable you take your files with you. However, the Gen 5 Juliana has a higher 8GB onboard storage capacity which means you can take more of your favorite tracks with you, as well more apps.

    The Gen 5 Juliana also has a higher 1GB RAM for the Snapdragon 3100 chip to play with. This will improve significantly performance on the Gen 5, just as noticed with the Ticwatch Pro 4G which also has a 1GB RAM even though being powered by a long outdated Snapdragon 2100 chip.

    You should expect to get more out of Google assistant, blazing experience on the Gen 5 Juliana than on the Gen 4 Venture.

    Moreover, with loudspeaker inbuilt in the Juliana, you can expect to play your favorite tracks anywhere, and also Google Assistant can now talk to you.

  5. Fossil Gen 4 Venture vs Gen 5 Juliana: Platform

  6. The Snapdragon 3100 chip is the game changer powering the new Gen 5 smartwatches. It brings a lot to the table of which one of those is the valuable battery management feature anchored by the Nano-sized co-processor. This gives the Gen 5 Juliana significant edge over the Gen 4 Venture.

  7. Fossil Gen 4 Venture vs Gen 5 Juliana: Fitness Tracking

  8. Both the Gen 5 and 4 come with an accelerometer, heart rate sensor, GPS, gyroscope – all standard sensors we expect to find on an average smartwatch. So, these can possibly track same activities such as calories, distance, sleep, and other related stats.

    However, the Gen 5 has a much improved heart rate sensor that’s more sensitive and smarter. This will result in more accurate readings that can help you workout at your pace and manage your training intensity effortlessly.

  9. Fossil Gen 4 Venture vs Gen 5 Juliana: Battery Life

One of the significant differences between the 3100 and 2100 chip is the battery management feature. Although, Ticwatch Pro did try to solve that problem with dual display mode which I think is very innovative and effective.

As seen with the Gen 4 Sport – another of Fossil smartwatch powered by the Snapdragon 3100 chip. The time-only mode battery saver elongated the Gen 4 sport battery life up to 3-5days.

However, the Gen 5 has four battery saver modes; extended, daily, custom, including the time-only mode. These three modes will see the Gen 5 Juliana last up to a week which is a lot more than what you’ll get from the Gen 4 Venture.

Fossil Gen 4 Venture vs Gen 5 Juliana: Which is Better?

From the features and even the appearance, it’s very clear that the Gen 5 Juliana is a better smartwatch. It looks stunning and has far more features on a better performing platform which no doubts will leave a better user experience.

Moreover, the Gen 5 has a loudspeaker that allows you answer call from this device, play media anywhere, as well improve communication on Google assistant.
