Garmin Fenix 5 review

 

Brilliant multi-sport tracker? Yes. Overkill? Almost certainly.

Able to track almost anything ; Full training companion ; Astounding build quality ; Excellent battery life

Physical button inputs can be confusing ; Amount of data can actually confound ; Connect partner app isn’t the clearest ; Expensive

A super-powerful sports tracker with a side of smartwatch, this is close to wearable perfection - and you’ll pay for it

Garmin Fenix 5 review: Smart sports watches don't come better than this

 

If money's no object, and you have no issue dropping £500+ on a great, modern, connected sports watch, the Fenix 5 will surely leave you satisfied.

Amazing battery life ; Solid build quality ; Huge range of sports tracking and features ; Reliable performance

Might be big for some ; Proprietary 22mm QuickFit bands only ; Screen doesn't look great

If money is no object and you have no issue dropping £500 upward on a great, modern, connected sports watch, then the Fenix 5 will surely leave you satisfied.

Garmin Fenix 5 series review

 

Garmin's Fenix watches are a smart choice for fitness fanatics & adventurers with GPS, sports tracking and waterproofing but they don't come cheap.

Garmin's new smartwatches aren't for everyone. They'll only suit people who're serious about sports tracking or venture outdoors on hikes, ski trips or bike rides on a regular basis. It's not cheap, so we'd recommend looking elsewhere if GPS isn't...

Garmin Fenix 5 review

  (Rating Hidden)

The chunky Garmin Fenix 5 fitness watch is designed for multisport tracking. It's got a built-in heart-rate monitor, and makes use of both GPS and GLONASS for distance and location tracking. So can this large fitness watch justify the equally hefty...

The Garmin Fenix 5S is the fitness watch I don't want to take off

 

Get ready to cough up $600

Lighter, smaller Fenix option ; Tracks everything and then some ; Works with iOS, Android, and desktop computers ; Long battery life

Expensive ; Notification interaction is bad ; Cluttered mobile app

Garmin Fenix 5 Review: The Best Outdoor GPS Watch

 

The Garmin fenix 5 is not a cheap GPS watch, but for outdoor adventurers who need or want to capture everything they do, this $599 device could be worth the investment. It provides detailed stats on a multitude of activities, has an accurate heart rate...

Durable design ; Outdoor-readable display ; Long battery life ; Customizable display

Expensive ; Low-resolution screen

With more than 20 hours of battery life, the ability to track almost any activity and a durable design, the Garmin fenix 5 is the outdoor GPS watch to get.

Review: Garmin's Fenix 5 smartwatch aims at athletes, not Apple Watch fans

 

Garmin's Fenix 5 is an impressive smartwatch for people serious about fitness or the outdoors, but probably both too much and too little for people expecting something like the Apple Watch.

The Fenix 5 is a natural option for hikers, triatheletes, or just athletes in general. It's indestructible, and bound to last as long as they could possibly demand.

Garmin’s new Fenix 5 multisport tracker will finally fit my small wrist

 

A Fenix device that won't weigh you down but has all the features you need.
