Does the Garmin fēnix 5 have GPS?

Yes, the Garmin fēnix 5 does have a GPS, as well as GLONASS. What is GLONASS, you say? GLONASS is essentially Russia’s version of America’s GPS. So what’s the difference? Apparently, not much. However, when used together they can give slightly more accurate readings. They measure pace, distance, and speed.

Check the videos below for more information on the Garmin fēnix 5, and – if you’re interested – more information on GLONASS and GPS:

They show great potential to change our lives almost as much, if not just as much, as smartphones have. I'm also an internet entrepreneur that makes my living via tech.
