GARMIN FENIX 5: DESIGN
There’s still a colour screen and the visuals look a tad sharper, thanks to the new resolution of 240 x 240, upped from 218 x 218. At first glance you might not notice the colours – they’re used sparingly yet to good effect in screens like heart rate zones and menus.
As you might guess from the design, the Fenix 5 is water resistant to 10ATM, which roughly equates to 100m.
The Fenix comes with a rubber strap as standard, which is interchangeable. We found it comfortable and durable in testing, but it did have an annoying habit of falling out of its buckle loop and flapping about. .
Garmin Fenix 5: Features
Watches don’t come more feature-packed than the Fenix 5, but it’s the sports tracking that steals the show. When you set up for the first time, the Fenix 5 will ask you to choose the activities you wish to have on your menu. The options range from the obvious – running (outdoor, indoor, trail), cycling (indoor, road, mountain bike) and swimming (pool, open water) – to other sports including golf, skiing, triathlon and – get this – even parachuting.
It’s hard to find a sport that the Fenix 5 doesn’t track, and luckily, you can set favourites for a more personalised and focused sports menu. They can be added to at any time from the main menu. We’ve dissected most below for your perusal.
Garmin Fenix 5: Running
Despite the huge array of tracked sports, running is arguably the Fenix 5’s strongest suit. In a way the Fenix 5 brings the best of all Garmin’s disparate specialist watches into one device, so the running data is formidable.
