    Best watch on the market

    Posted
    JimD

    This is the ultimate activity tracker and outdoors watch, with some smarts. I've been using the Fenix series for a while now and the new "plus" doesn't disappoint. Onboard music works perfect, although Spotify app would be cool. Onboard maps are also great. 20 days of battery is no joke. While there are better budget options, this is a badass watch.

    I have a fenix 5X and I bought the Plus to see how much better it was. They recently updated the 5X non plus so it now has Galio as well. Having music built into the watch was cool, but I decided to just keep my old 5X as I usually don't listen to music during runs nor use credit cards from my watch. If you do not have a Fenix 5X, the Plus is an awesome watch, it for me not worth the Steep upgrade price.

    Since the previous smart watch product I bought didn't do as promised, I bought this for better activities recording. Here's to hoping Garmin gets on the ball for better phone support but really they're on the top of the pack for now. Did have to buy a new band due to allergies, though I don't have reactions to other silicones, latex, etc..

    I now wear the Garmin 5X Plus every day due to the level of comfort and functionality. Beyond the obvious use of keeping track of fitness goals, the watch has many other uses. It works great for a golf GPS, plus the hiking/navigation/topo map features help out while hiking or hunting. I feel it is a great watch and avoids having to buy multiple pieces of gear for outdoor activities.

    This is a fantastic fitness watch first with smart watch features second. It does absolutely everything I need it to do. Once connected to the app it opens up tons of historical tracking to get you to your fitness goals. My only, and biggest, complaint is the finish on the silicon band wears very quickly and it’s another $50 to replace it with OEM.

    I upgraded my Garmin 5X to the Garmin 5X Plus recently. I like many features of its "activities" purpose which is similar with the 5X. For the newest function "Pulse Ox acclimation sensor" is one of my favorite which providing a reference regarding to the SpO2 functions, especially for daily inquiry of sleeping condition. Very interesting reference.

    The fenix is a pricey option to smart watches but it has more data collection than others that I have priced. Battery life is excellent but reduced when in tracking or map mode. It still gives me days of life and recharges quickly.

    I moved away from Garmin to Apple to get something for everyday use....and now I have gone back to Garmin....and I am loving it. My only concern / issue is the fact that occasionally it gives me steps and stairs when I am driving...other than that I love how it feels and have always been a fan of the garmin tools

    I got into a Fenix 3HR when it was released and jumped into the 5x Plus because I wanted to upgrade! It was so worth it! They're worth the price since they do so much and track a lot of activities. You won't be disappointed!

    I haven't worn a watch in many years, too many to count. I haven't taken the Fenix 5X Plus off since I got it (minus to charge and shower (yes I know I can shower with it on)). I love this watch. Great battery life thus far and loving the feedback I get from the device.

    This was my first smart watch so there was a learning curve. I’ve had it a few weeks now and really like it. Easy to use with tons of features and really tough.

    Put plainly, this is the James Bond watch of sports watches. Waterproof to 333 feet. Reads heart rate all day and night. Built in GPS Map and Compass. Computes calories consumed based on daily activity. No wonder special forces personnel choose this watch.

    Use to track all my training activities, running, trail running, cycling, swimming. The maps are great. Fantastic battery life. Wear as my everyday watch. Probably more functions than I will ever use, but absolutely love it.

    Im a smartwatch guy... it's actually a problem that's become annoying... until I picked up with watch. I no longer have am interest in switching between watches or trying the next new thing that comes out. My Gear S3 is shelved and this one takes the cake.

    I really love this Garmin. This fall they came out with an update that allows people to use spotify premium and download music. Dont need my phone during runs anymore. The price is high but I consistently enjoy looking at my stats and pushing myself to improve.

    Purchased my Garmin 5X+ a few months back, and haven't taken it off since. Love all of the features and ease of use. The goals that update automatically as you reach them daily is a nice touch to keep pushing you is a nice touch.

    The GPS is awesome along with being able to get phone alerts on it. The heart rate monitor is great for my training. Also battery life is 4-5 days and charging only takes 20-30 minutes. Love that I can track my sleep and pulse oxygen
