fenix 5x vs 5x Plus

The fenix 5x Plus is packed with all of the features that has made the fenix 5x so popular and reliable, but as expected, the Plus packs an even bigger punch. These are the features the Garmin fenix 5x Plus added.

  1. Trendline Popularity Maps - Garmin uses billions of miles of Garmin Connect data to help you find and follow the best trails and routes. Especially helpful when you’re away from your home turf, this feature lets you quickly see the most-used, locally validated pathways.
  2. Music - Up to 500 songs can be downloaded directly from your computer or select service (only iHeartRadio currently, no word yet 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 with your fenix 5x Plus purchase.
  3. Garmin Pay - Hook your credit card up to Garmin Pay and breeze through checkout lines! All Garmin fenix 5X Plus Sapphire Watch models are equipped with this new functionality so you can leave your cash and wallet at home.
  4. Multinetwork Navigation - The fenix 5x already use GPS and GLONASS maps, but the 5s Plus series added Galileo satellite, which is the European Union's satellite tracking system.

More About the SkyTrak

The SkyTrak is the first personal launch monitor of its kind, using revolutionary technology to give golfers an accurate and reliable practice and play system at a fraction of the cost of commercial-quality systems. SkyTrak matches valuable statistics along with a precise rendering of your ball flight to enable beneficial practice sessions, enjoyable target practice, challenging mini-games, full course play and much more.  

How It Works

The SkyTrak uses photometric technology, which means it uses a with high-speed camera to capture all of its measurements immediately after impact. The system then calculates the ball's flight path and distance and delivers it wirelessly to your iPad, PC, or other compatible device. And just like that, you view all of the advanced stats along with the shot simulation within seconds of hitting the ball. 

Easy Setup 

The SkyTrak connects wirelessly to an iPad, iPhone, Android (select devices) or PC where you run SkyTrak's app (Available on the App Store, Google Play or Windows software download) or an upgraded simulation app. After the first time you set up the Wi-Fi connection between your device and the SkyTrak, your device will remember the SkyTrak every time you turn it on for quick startup. The unit displays a small red dot to indicate ball placement so there's no confusion about where you should be hitting from.

If you want to expand your SkyTrak setup, you can connect your PC, iPad or other compatible device to a television or projector via an HDMI adapter, Apple TV (for iPad/iPhone) or other screen sharing options compatible that are with your devices. 

Extremely Accurate Data Points


We've found the SkyTrak to be incredibly accurate (so have many other sources); routinely nailing that yardage on every club in the bag. It uses Photometric technology to track the flight of the ball (instead of Doppler). The unit uses a camera to take high-speed photos of your ball after impact and provide the following data points:

Carry/Total Distance
Ball Speed
Launch Angle
Offline Yardage
Back/Side Spin

Side Angle
Roll
Flight Path
Club Head Speed
Angel of Descent 

Great Tool for Golf Improvement - Make Practice Fun!

Here at PlayBetter.com, golf improvement is kind of our thing - and the SkyTrak is one of the best training and teaching tools we've come across because it displays, with great accuracy, every relevant number to your golf swing. The feedback is immediate and based on this data, you'll be able to see how much you've progressed (instead of going to the range and saying, 'That one looked good...right?')

Make practice fun again when you upgrade to the Game Improvement or Play & Improve Package. In addition to other features, these packages give access mini-games and challenges. Play by yourself or compete with friends (up to 6 golfers total) in Closest to the Pin, Target Practice and Longest Drive.  

The unit also has so much versatility that it can be used by students, teachers and club fitters alike! Students can continually track their improvement, teachers can 'wow' their clients and club fitters can provide accurate recommendations based off SkyTrak's accurate data.  All of this for a fraction of the price and what you would have paid even two years ago for this technology.

Have Endless Fun with Simulation Software

Step onto the 18th hole at Pebble Beach without stepping outside of your house. The SkyTrak has partnered with several different simulation softwares so you can play a round of golf with your SkyTrak. The simulation packages offer different features, compatible devices and price, but all of them allow you to play courses with your own clubs in a stunning, high-definition virtual environment. Check out more information on simulation packages here. 

We have a SkyTrak set up in our office and it has absolutely ruined our staff's productivity. Even those who had barely played any golf previously would be caught hacking away on Kiawah Island's famous Ocean Course or competing with another team member in a Closest to the Pin contest. It's easy for us to talk about the unit because we truly think so highly of it.

  • Samsung Galaxy S6
  • Samsung Galaxy Tab S2
  • Samsung Galaxy S8
PC Requirements
  • Windows 7, 8, or 10
  • Intel Core 2 Duo @ 2.0GHz or higher
  • 2GB RAM or higher
  • Third-party simulation software (including E6 & The Golf Club) may have different software requirements.

A delay after each shot can happen if you're not using a device with a fast processor - so it's more an issue of the tablet/computer than it is of the SkyTrak. The SkyTrak app will technically work on an iPhone (we've tried it) but it's pretty slow just because the phone's processor isn't as powerful as a brand new iPad (or especially a powerful PC), which works wonderfully without more than a couple milliseconds of delay.

SkyTrak is completely portable and can be used both indoors and outdoors on a mat. If you’re using the system indoors, then you’ll need to use a hitting net (mostly to avoid making your spouse very upset). The system has an internal battery providing over 4 hours of use when fully charged and wirelessly connects to your iPad. Outdoor performance may vary in certain lighting conditions. Avoid the sun shining or reflecting directly into the lens of the SkyTrak device. We suggested using it only under cover if hitting on an outdoor driving range.

The only type of ball that SkyTrak suggests you NOT use is a yellow ball.

They do suggest that you use new, or relatively new, quality distance, performance, or Tour type golf balls in good clean condition. The type and condition of the ball you use will affect ball flight data, most noticeably ball speed and spin. Ball imperfections, mud, excessive markings, cut covers, and/or otherwise identifiable markings on the ball, etc. can affect SkyTrak’s dimple recognition capability, making ball data difficult to analyze.

As long as there is enough room to safely swing a golf club, you have enough room to use the SkyTrak system. Suggested indoor dimensions are a minimum of 10’ wide x 10’ deep with a variable height, depending on your physical height and length of your club. This image displays the space requirements.
