    Better than ever.

    Offering a long-awaited refresh to the popular Fenix 3, the Garmin Fenix 5 retains all the popular sport-tracking capabilities of the Fenix 3, but in a sleeker 47-millimeter case with easier swapping of wrist straps. Instead of messing with tools to change out the strap, the Fenix 5 now offers the ability to swap QuickFit bands with a simple click. This allows you to seamlessly transfer from the workday routine to afternoon workout without messing with screws, especially when you're in your office or vehicle.

    Battery life is significantly better than the previous version, with the watch's rechargeable battery lasting up to 24 hours in GPS mode and 60 hours in UltraTrac mode. Display resolution gets a bump up as well, which is much welcomed for viewing all your exercise stats, daily metrics, and smartphone updates in bright outdoor environments. Another improved feature, the built-in gyroscope is handy for ultrarunners seeking improved positional accuracy and boosted battery life while racing and training across long distances.

    Besides these upgrades, the Fenix 5 retains many of the same features as the Fenix 3, which is a good thing if you're seeking one of the most comprehensive sport and navigation watches on the market. Wrist-based heart rate monitoring means you won't have to wear a pesky chest strap to monitor your performance, unless you absolutely want to, in which case it communicates via ANT+ (with compatible Garmin heart rate monitors) to receive all your workout stats.

    Advanced Performance Metrics deliver both aerobic and anaerobic benefits from grueling workouts, so you can see how it's paying off in the long run and compare yourself to peers of your own age. There's a heap of Advanced Running Dynamics suited for the most dedicated runners seeking data like lactate threshold, cadence, and stride length. To accommodate your multi-sport lifestyle, the Fenix 5 comes with preloaded outdoor profiles for hiking, climbing, cycling, mountain biking, indoor cycling, stand-up paddleboarding, and skiing/snowboarding, among others.

    Tracking your every move, the watch's GPS and GLONASS receivers lock onto a satellite signal without endlessly waiting for reception. You'll find the GPS is crucial for point-to-point navigation, as well as getting you back to the trail head with its nifty TracBack feature. The 3-axis compass and barometric altimeter come in handy for assessing your bearings in the backcountry, tracking storm fronts, and monitoring elevation across mountainous terrain.

    Great watch

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Very pleased with the quality of the watch, very duarable. Battery life has been amazing. Have been using it for road and trail running and GPS had been totally accurate. Fitness data seems to be reasonably accurate as well. I would totally recommend this watch.

    Great watch, bad screen

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I've been wearing this watch for 3 weeks with day to day use and some hiking and road biking. I love the features and the look of it. However, I thought I was paying $600 for a rugged all sports watch, but it turns out the screen scratches way to easily. I haven't hit it or scratched it on anything hard enough to notice but yesterday I see a scratch almost across the whole screen. I'm afraid to see what it looks like after mt. biking or climbing. yikes!

      This review is from my trail running partner here in Utah -

      After a couple weeks of fairly heavy use (mostly trail running and day to day), I have mostly good things to say about this watch. I stepped up from the Fenix 2 to the 5, and the improvements are huge, particularly in the user interface. The UI, both on the watch and through the Garmin Connect app, makes the different data screens and settings easy to customize. Distance and elevation tracking also seems to be very accurate. Although I didn’t get it for its activity tracking features (pedometer, flights climbed, sleep analysis, etc…), it provides some fairly interesting data. So far, my longest run with it has been 4 hours, but based on this I fully expect it to last 24 hours in GPS mode, as advertised (the HRM will probably need to be turned off for this). My only complaint is with the wrist-based HRM. Although it seems to be accurate most of the time, it has been extremely off on a few occasions.
