Garmin Fenix 5 Plus


Upgrade your outdoor adventure with the new Garmin Fenix 5 Plus, the all-in-one smartwatch with up to 21 days of battery life, advanced navigation, and activity tracking features.


As our world becomes increasingly digitized, it’s no surprise that the field of wearables has exploded in recent years. More than just wristwatches, these devices offer tracking of health data, communicate notifications from your phone and more while providing a number of other useful features.

Garmin has been the mainstay of fitness tracking for years and with the launch of the Fenix 5 Plus smartwatch, they have shown that they are not resting on their laurels. The Fenix 5 Plus takes the previous model, Fenix 5, and adds a number of features that make it an even smarter device to have on your wrist.

Intelligent GPS Navigation and Maps

The Fenix 5 Plus smartwatch is equipped with superior GPS functionality to help users find their way through a pre-loaded map. This is ideal for hikers or runners where one can save up to 500 songs and listen to them even without your phone, as it connects with third-party music app services like Spotify or Deezer to bring music to your wrist. The watch has an impressive battery life that lasts up to 20 days, meaning you don’t have to worry about the battery going dead while you’re out and about.

Track Your Fitness Goals and Health Data

One of the biggest benefits of owning a smartwatch is that it can help you track your fitness goals and other various health data with its numerous features. The Fenix 5 Plus comes with various sensors that can track your heart rate, steps, calories burned and monitor sleep patterns. It also has a new feature, Pulse Ox acclimation, that helps users adjust to high altitudes.

The watch is water-resistant up to 100 meters, which means it can be worn while swimming or showering without any damage. It also has compatibility with third-party apps such as Strava, which means that you can share your progress and achievements with other users or push for achieving better results.

Receive Notifications Directly to Your Watch

One of the major draws of a smartwatch is the ability to receive notifications without having to pull out your phone. The Fenix 5 Plus can connect with your phone and display notifications, calls, messages and more, allowing you to keep your phone out of sight and stay focused on your activities.


Overall, the Garmin Fenix 5 Plus smartwatch is an ideal choice for people who are interested in adventure, fitness and general health tracking. Its GPS capabilities alone make it incredibly valuable, and it is packed with numerous other features that make it a top-of-the-line smartwatch. While it may not be the most budget-friendly watch on the market, the Fenix 5 Plus is definitely a worthwhile investment for those who want the best features in a wearable device.
