Garmin finally have got it right

I have owned Garmin watches since the 205, and for many of the models I felt like a beta tester, having lost count in the number of watches I returned to be replaced. The last of these the Epix, was the worst of all, what a dog of a watch. So it was with some trepidation I forked out close to a $1000 for the Fenix 5, my fifth Garmin watch purchase. A month down and so far everything is at it should be. With previous watches I would have been through numerous calls with Garmin Support and subsequent hard resets by now, but not one needed for the Fenix. On a ten hour trail run the Fenix behaved perfectly guiding me along the course. The only negative with this is the 50 course points limit which stops turn by turn navigation after the first 50 points have been reached. Integration with the Garmin Connect app is seamless via Bluetooth, and Connect's recent update has improved the app significantly also. This is the first watch I have had that provides music controls, a feature I really like as I can adjust volume, skip tracks etc from Spotify on my iPhone buried deep in my hydration pack. The watch looks good on and it’s now my daily wearer. The option to get different straps is a good one. Overall very happy with my Fenix 5 purchase.

Pros: The wrist HR, quick satellite lock, the way it looks
Cons: Can’t charge during a run on the wrist

The first one was so good we've now got two in the family

Bought the Fenix five to replace a forerunner that was playing up. Better swim metrics when used with the heart rate monitor.

So far, very good

I have had my Garmin fenix 5 for three weeks so far and am quite pleased with it. This unit is a replacement for a Garmin Vivosmart HR+ which turned out to be a total disappointment. After the Garmin Vivosmart HR+ which had a pathetic battery, the Garmin fenix 5 battery is fantastic. The Vivosmart HR+ battery never lasted the hours claimed by Garmin but the Garmin fenix 5 exceeds Garmin's claims. Garmin claims up to 2 weeks in smartwatch mode and up to 24 hours in GPS mode. So far the battery has never run flat and it looks like it should last about 30 days in smartwatch mode (double Garmin's claim) and 26 hours in GPS. It seems very rugged so far and has a clear, easily read face. GPS accuracy is good and it acquires satellite signals fast (unlike the Vivosmart). I have two complaints about it, one small and two big. The small one is that I have not found a hiking App that suits me. I will keep looking The first big one is that the Garmin fenix 5, like the Vivosmart HR+ gives totally inaccurate sleep data. If I sit in bed reading, it counts it as sleep. If I am awake during the night, it counts it as sleep but if I nap during the day, it registers nothing. The second is that the Garmin fenix 5, especially in the sapphire form is very expensive. But then, it does seem to do what it should and hopefully should last well. The Vivosmart HR+ was less than half the price and barley lasted a year.

Pros: Fantastic battery, useful range of Apps and watch faces
Cons: Sleep monitoring totally inaccurate

Does all I need, and more!

I spent a long time researching smart watches, and kept coming back to the Garmin Fenix range for what I wanted in a smart watch. To be honest, this is overkill in what it's capabilities are. Simple notifications, HRM, and audio app integration were the things I was looking for. ABC & GPS are additional bonuses I'm enjoying. The battery life, for me, is mind blowing. Having previously used a smart watch that needed charging twice a day, I'm easily getting 9+ days out of a charge. Though I'm not an active person, it must be said. I'm not using it for activity tracking outside of a daily pedometer. The watch is big, but is still comfortable - even to sleep in. My one big issue is the lack of integration with 3rd party apps. 'Sleep on Android' is my preferred sleep app, and it's a struggle to get the watch to work with it (though it's not impossible, consistency in data recording isn't great), and there's no direct integration with Google Health. The beta version of Garmin Connect seems good, and I'm using that easily enough though. It's an expensive smart watch, but you get what you pay for in quality.

Pros: Battery life. GPS. Garmin Connect app
Cons: Lacking integration with 3rd party apps

Great device - really enjoying it.

This is one amazing piece of equipment. I have also paired it with the HRM Run chest strap and the metrics are amazing. I'll summarize my opinion on main aspects below; Battery, fine - did a 13 hour triathlon on Sunday using gps and the battery was 45% when finished, way above what i expected. Looks/feel - like in the pics, comfy, dont notice hr sensor, not too bulky. ease of use - buttons easy to learn and logical progression, took a few days to rememeber where all features were and how to navigate but thats beacause there are so many. GPS - first time i used it was slow and i was worried, however since the first use it is very quick to get a fix. Display - need to use light sometimes ... so what? Sports - so far used pool swim and not miscounted a single lap (talking 4km sessions) open water swim - cant be certain of accuracy but what gps can when its in water/out of water constantly. happy with its performance - used for 4km o/w swims bike works great (no power meter to be able to advise on) Run - great metrics especially with the HRM Run. knowing your spending too long going upwards (and how much) and not forward is amazing - along with heaps of other stats and comparisons- used for 42km and its terrific indoor bike and run - not as conmvinced by these when using the wrist hr monitor as i dont think it reads accurately - however to be fair i should compare when using the chest strap but i havent had time as race was Sunday. connect - Connects effortlessly and faultlessly. i love the training effect, segments, records. phone music control read text messages didnt want but actually quite like .... the list is endless. Widgets - easy to add - watch follows its logical chain of command and button structure Price - yeah its sure expensive but it sure is one heck of piece of equipment. Summary - i have had this tool (it really is an amazing tool) for around 4 weeks and i keep learning new features all the time. i havent had time to try golf or a heap of other features but the features i have used have been faultless. are they useful ? i reckon most of the features are incredibly useful and insighful. Would i reccomend ? somebody who wants to run 5km - no , get a cheaper model and spend the cash saved on a coach. Would i reccomend to serious athletes - hell yeah, its a beast of a performer. Ive had other gps, none come close to this. i am totally satisifed with this purchase . Johnny Appleseed - answered one question promptly and dispatched the same day - great service - i would reccomend both the fenix 5 and JA GPS

Pros: Not too big on wrist, comfy and does exactly what the guides/reviews states. It is one hell of a piece of equipement.
Cons: I've only had 3 weeks - i'm not convinced by the wrist HR monitor during indoor bike or run.

The best Garmin product I've owned

Powerful, intuitive, easy to use. A must have for anyone serious about collecting information about their activity and improving their performance. Happy with the sapphire screen and the peace of mind protection from some of the daily knocks and bumps. It's not a petite watch - you will notice you have it on. However, it's a snug fit and it hasn't distracted me during running or riding activities. Screen resolution and brightness make it easy to read, even in full sunlight.

Pros: More features than I can use
Cons: Still need Windows to set it up (WiFi) and os updates. This is the 21st century right?
