At IFA this year Fossil launched their Gen 5 Wear OS Smartwatch platform, and quickly following that announcement were new devices from Fossil, Michael Kors, Diesel and Emporio Armani. At launch the devices from Fossil and Michael Kors were immediately available in Australia, but we were left waiting for the devices from Diesel and Emporio Armani.

Today Fossil has announced the retail partners for these late comers.


The Diesel on Axial Gen 5 Smartwatch will be on sale “this month” (yes that leaves 1 day to get in stock!!) at a RRP of $599 AUD and will be available from:

  • Myer
  • David Jones
  • The Iconic (online only) and
  • JB Hi-Fi

Emporio Armani

The Armani Smartwatch 3 will be on sale from next month from $649 AUD and will be available from:

  • Myer
  • David Jones
  • The Iconic (online only) and
  • Harvey Norman

Stock and availability is expected to be limited at first but there should be ample supply in time for the Christmas shopping season, assuming above $600 Christmas gifts are on your shopping list.

Not sure which style of Gen 5 you like the best? Check them all out here.
