Garmin fenix 5 - what size watch is best for my wrist?

As you can imagine, the demand for the Garmin fenix 5 series has been incredible. Customers are eagerly checking online to see when they can get their hands (or is it wrists?) on the latest GPS watch on the market.

And as customers are beginning to receive and enjoy their devices, questions are rolling in on a variety of topics. But one of the most popular inquiries is what size watch to purchase. This post is here to help: 

First off, it’s important to come to terms with the fact that no matter which fenix 5 version you choose – 5, 5s or 5x – the watch face will likely be larger than most watches you’ve worn. This is due to the fact that the fenix 5 series boasts an incredibly vivid and detailed display, and you need some room to let all of those features come to life.

Now, let’s get into specifics. The first step is to measure your wrist. Once you have, check out this list below. 

Wrist size = 6-7 inches/small to medium/38mm, 40mm or 42mm

Wrist size = 7-8 inches/medium to large/44mm or 46mm

Wrist size = larger than 8 inches/large/46mm and up 

So, where does that put you with the fenix 5 lineup?

Fenix 5s – 42mm

Fenix 5 – 47mm

Fenix 5x – 51mm

There you have it. Of course, personal preference also plays a role in this decision, but for going simply based off wrist size/comfort, this is a handy guide to use.
