Garmin fēnix 5 - July 2020

Garmin fēnix 5

The Garmin fēnix 5 is Garmin’s first high-end watch designed particularly for females. A unique thing about Garmin smartwatches is that you can actually choose the watch size. For example, with the Garmin fēnix 5 you can choose from a 42mm, 47mm, or 51mm case size.

It’s a sturdy smartwatch with athletic bands and a stainless steel case. The Garmin fēnix 5 boasts strong readability, even under intense sunlight. This is due to the display having transflective technology, which reflects and transmits light. You have the option of getting the Sapphire edition, which means the Garmin fēnix 5 will come with a scratch-resistant Sapphire lens. This costs about $90 extra.

The Garmin fēnix 5 offers leather, metal, and silicone watch bands. These are easily interchangeable, so you can mix it up depending on the occasion. This smartwatch is waterproof down to 100 meters of submersion.

This smartwatch is equipped with an Elevate heart-rate monitor. Also, the Garmin fēnix 5 has both GPS and GLONASS to measure distance and speed while performing a variety of activities. The battery life can last up to two weeks, but with constant usage of the GPS/heart-rate monitor, it will last about 10 hours.

It’s compatible with both Android and iOS phones. It is capable of smart notifications. With Garmin Connect, you can share your activities with the Garmin community. Also, it allows you to connect with friends during activities and even monitor each other in the event that you get separated during.

The Garmin fēnix 5 Performance Widget keeps track of all of your fitness information. Not only does it record workout data, but it also tells you how hard you’ve trained, how effective your training is, and recommends how much recovery time you should have from your last workout. With a GPS, heart-rate monitor, great water-resistance, customizable size, strong readability, and every kind of sport tracking you could hope for, the Garmin fēnix 5 is one of the best fitness-oriented smartwatches on the market.
