About the Garmin fenix 5
Looking for the most complete fitness device available? You’ve come to the right place. The Garmin fenix 5 smartwatch is the premium multi-sport GPS watch designed to be the most versatile, stylish performance tracking device ever created; no matter if you're trail running, swimming laps, cycling, skiing in the mountains or anything in between, the fenix 5 will be right with you every step of the way, providing the most advanced fitness metrics and tracking information available today.
With a new, slimmer design, standard wrist-based heart rate monitoring on all units and a new QuickFit interchangeable bands system - the fenix 5 has taken its revolutionary predecessor (fenix 3) to the next level. In addition to its upgrades, the fenix 5 has retained the line's best legacy features including GPS/GLONASS satellite reception (for the most accurate readings, even under thick cover), advanced fitness metrics (heart rate, VO2 max, cadence etc), smart notifications and multi-sport activity profiles. The fenix 5 is unequivocally the ultimate device to fulfill both your aesthetic and athletic desires.
Wrist-Based Heart Rate (with Flush Sensor)
Keeping track of your step count and sleeping habits is important, but most fitness experts will agree that in order to truly get a sense of how your training is going, you need to be in tune with how your heart is doing. The fenix 5 now comes with wrist-based heart rate monitoring standard, a nice feature that doesn’t force you to sport a chest strap, too. With heart rate monitoring, you can more accurately track your calories burned information and make sure you’re pushing your ticker each time you train.
The new heart rate sensor is also flush with the back of the watch (as opposed to the fenix 3 sensor which protruded slightly) allowing for maximum comfort.
QuickFit Interchangeable Bands
The Garmin fenix 5 smartwatch has an offering of 22 different premium leather, metal or silicone bands making it easier than ever to mix and match for any sports, activity or event.
The new QuickFit system allows you to simply 'pop' off the band and 'snap' on a new one! No more messing around with screwdrivers and microscopic screws.
Slimmed Down Design
Functionality is crucial, but a fitness watch isn’t complete without the perfect look and feel. Fortunately, the fenix 5 series comes in a variety of models to match any size wrist and style choice, all of which are noticeably thinner and lighter than the fenix 3. From the watch’s finishes to several different band options - from silicone to stainless steel - the fenix 5 can pull off just about any look.
Custom Apps and Watch Faces
Along with the ability to customize the look of the fenix 5 with different watch bands, users can take advantage of free downloads from the Connect IQ store, letting you change your watch face, add data fields or get widgets for information at just a glance. You can even customize your watch with any photo from your smartphone. And while you’re working hard to improve your fitness, the fenix 5 is working, too. Garmin is connecting with top companies and developers to build partnerships that add value to your fenix 5 watch. The goal is to make the fenix 5 the ultimate watch to fit your lifestyle.
Multi-Sport Activity Profiles - Running, Cycling, Skiing, Golf and More!
One of the best features of the fenix 5 is the fact that it’s not just for running and hiking. Fans of sports like swimming, skiing and paddle sports can enjoy the fenix 5 on the slopes, in the pool and even the ocean.
For swimmers, the watch tracks distance, pace, stroke count and more. Setting the watch in Ski/Board mode puts speed, distance, vertical drop and a run counter into your time on the slopes, while those interested in paddle boarding can track stroke count, stroke rate and even distance per stroke.
Are you a fan of golf? No need to worry. The fenix 5 gives you yardage to the front, back and middle of the green for any course you’ve downloaded and boasts additional stat tracking, Green View and AutoShot detection.
Advanced Performance Metrics & Running Dynamics
Gone are the days of using a simple pedometer or heart rate monitor during your training. The fenix 5 is an information supernova. With this device, you’ll get detailed readouts for Training Status and Training Effect that show both aerobic and anaerobic benefits of your workout, meaning you can directly see how your workouts are paying off and compare your stats against your friends. The VO2 max estimator sounds complicated, but with this feature, your fenix 5 crunches data, including running speed, beats per minute and consistent heart rate. You can even track your recovery times to help you cool down faster and maximize your workout.
If you’re a runner, this device is a dream. Along with tracking the basic stats during a run (steps taken, calories burned), the fenix 5 takes it four steps further. With Performance condition, the fenix 5 will compare your real-time condition to your average fitness levels after running for 6-20 minutes. Lactate threshold uses your pace and heart rate to estimate the point where your muscles start to rapidly reach fatigue, while Stride length shows your stride in real time.
Chroma Display - Unbeatable Readability in Any Conditions
Along with having an impressive 1.2” watch face, the Garmin fenix 5 smartwatch boasts a full-color Chroma Display with LED backlighting. This will ensure you can read all of the information shown on the watch - from golf course layouts, your resting heart rate and even that work email you “forgot” to respond to - even on the sunniest days. The Sapphire editions also feature a scratch-resistant sapphire lens as well as being Wi-Fi enabled so you can connect almost anywhere.
Sapphire Lens Upgrade - What's the Difference?
The fenix 5 offers an upgrade to the Sapphire version which offers two main benefits; a scratch-resistant Sapphire lens plus Wifi capabilities, which enables your watch to send data to Garmin Connect without syncing with your smartphone.
Thinking of upgrading to a Performer Bundle? Here's what you'll get:
For the ultimate fitness enthusiasts, the Performer Bundle lets you pair your watch with a compatible HRM-Tri heart rate chest strap, giving you access to these additional fenix 5 metrics:
Vertical oscillation and ratio - shows you how much “bounce” you’ve got in your step and the benefits of ratio to stride length
Ground contact time and balance - helps aid in running symmetry by letting you know how much time your feet are on the ground vs. in the air during your run
Stress score - stress monitoring is a big deal for some people. With this device, you can monitor your heart rate for three minutes while standing still, which will give you an estimated stress level from 1 to 100. Got a low number? Great! You’re not stressed! A high number? Just take a deep breath.
The features really do seem to never end! Here's a few more:
GPS/GLONASS Satellite Reception
There’s nothing more frustrating than being somewhere where your device doesn’t work. And with some GPS watches, you might run into that exact situation on a run through the woods or in another remote location. The fenix 5, however, not only uses GPS but also GLONASS satellite reception, allowing the device to more easily and reliably track your activity, even in the most challenging locations. Oh, and don’t worry if your plans include water. The Garmin fenix 5 smartwatch is water-rated up to 100 meters.
ABC Sensors - Altimeter, Barometer, Compass
In addition to GPS, the fenix 5 has ABC sensor capabilities, better known as Altimeter, Barometer, and Compass. The altimeter provides elevation data to monitor ascent and descent, while the barometer shows short-term trends in air pressure and can actually be used to predict weather changes! the compass, meanwhile, makes sure your adventure stays on point and the days of being lost on the trail are long gone.
Garmin Connect - Stay Connected!
The fenix 5 allows you to receive all of your smart notifications, including emails, text messages and other alerts right on your watch. And with the help of Garmin Connect and Garmin Connect mobile applications, you can post your results to various social media platforms to send out that latest 'humble brag' to your followers.
