Garmin fenix 5S Plus Sapphire Multisport GPS Watch
Garmin just announced the release of the Garmin fenix 5S Plus Sapphire Fitness Watch. This model is an updated model of their hugely popular fenix 5S series. There's several main differences when compared to the previously released models, let's check them out:
Differences: fenix 5S Plus vs. fenix 5S
1.) Maps & Navigation
The big advance for the Garmin fenix 5S Plus Sapphire Fitness Watch is that every watch now features built-in mapping and navigation (previously on the the fenix 5X Sapphire offered maps). Beautiful full-color TOPO maps are pre-loaded onto each device to provide easy at-a-glance navigation wherever you are. It also now features Trendline popularity which allows runners and cyclists to find the most popular routes in their area!
2.) Fresh Look & New Bands
While the general look and feel of the watches - bold & substantial yet stylish - has stayed consistent, Garmin has made a few tweaks to the design that we find refreshing. Check out the difference between the fenix 5S Sapphire Rose Gold (left) and the new fenix 5S Plus Sapphire Rose Gold (right):
The Quickfit Band looks to have been upgraded as has the bezel around the sapphire lens. We've found this consistent with the other colors that has been translated to the upgraded version.
3.) Music & 50% Off Skullcandy
All watches in the fenix 5S Plus Series feature the ability to store music directly on your wrist. Up to 500 songs can be downloaded directly from your computer or select service (only iHeartRadio currently, unfortunately no word on when Spotify or Amazon Music will be added) and then stream via Bluetooth headphones. You'll also get 50% off Skullcandy Method bluetooth headphones when you purchase a fenix 5 Plus Series watch!
4.) Garmin Pay
Hook your credit card up to Garmin Pay and breeze through checkout lines! All Garmin fenix 5S Plus Sapphire fitness watch models are equipped with this new functionality so you can leave your cash and wallet at home.
5.) Multinetwork Navigation (GPS, GLONASS + Galileo)
The fenix 5 Plus Series provides unmatched GPS connectivity by using multiple tracking networks (GPS, GLONASS & Galileo) to determine the users position. Once you're connected, you can be assured you won't find more accurate activity tracking in any other device.
