    I've had my Fossil Q Explorist Gen 3 for a year and a month now... This has happened twice this month... About mid day my watch dies. Black screen won't turn on what's so ever... I get home plug it in the charger the watch turns on and battery level says it's at 50-60%.

    Is it a glitch? Time for a new watch??

    I don't know for sure. But I might try a factory reset.

    Thanks I'll give that a try... Didn't think of that... I only thought of restarting the watch... Factory reset might do the trick. ๐Ÿ‘Œ

    It didn't work.. I just got home plugged it in and it said it has 45%. I went on the Fossil website and it says I have a 2 year warranty. So I'm going to contact them and see what I have to do to collect on that warranty. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Def use that warranty if you've got it. Sounds like one of the battery cells has failed. So it expects maybe 300mah, but it's only got 150mah. So around 50% it'll just "die". It's common in phones for it to happen at 25% or 33% depending on how many cells are in the battery.

    I just got my 3rd gen second hand. I'm curious if there's still a warranty on it if anything happens
