    Great battery life and a lot of useful apps. A little off on the step counter I think

    I upgraded from a Fenix 3HR and I love the 5HR Plus because it's the same functionality with an amazing battery life.

    I was looking for a multisport GPS watch and the new Fenix 5x plus fits the bill. It has great battery life, built in heart rate monitor and for me the added bonus of being able to use as a running watch along with golf GPS!

    Was looking for a smart/ fitness watch for years. Went with the Garmin for its gps capabilities and battery life. Sometimes I don't charge it for up to a week. If you're looking for a more smart phone oriented watch I'd go with something else. The music capability is frustrating at best and you receive notifications but at a very basic level. If you're active, work out, ride, run, etc. . . This is the watch to have.

    Superb battery life, in normal and GPS mode. Topo maps are great and the display is clear and big enough to understand your position on the ground and navigate. This is my fifth garmin watch and I've always been happy.

    Love my new Fenix 5x Plus! Long battery life and great for long bike rides and triathlons. A bit more expensive than the Apple watch but certainly worth it.

    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.

    As advertised, this watch does it all! It's super durable and has a long battery life! Spend the extra $$ if you want a quality watch.

    I've been reluctant to buy a watch that needs to be charged. My last watch had its own solar power recharge system but was a pretty standard watch. This one has some really cool technology and is easy to navigate and understand. Battery life is exceptional. Was traveling out of town for a week, connected to my iPhone BT and getting call/email/text notifications and on day 8 battery was at 70%! Haven't tested energy draw using the map feature yet but "wow!" Don't have to worry about plugging in every night was a big deal to me. I also really like the rugged look of the watch. I'm not a fan of most of the other tech wearables on the market.

    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.

    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.

    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've always wanted a Fenix watch and this one had what it took to get me to take the plunge. Coming from a galaxy watch, first and foremost I've noticed the excellent battery life. Almost 2 weeks with regular use and 4 or 5 45 minute GPS using activities a week. It is a great blend of smart watch and fitness/GPS watch in one device. One thing to note is it is definitely closer to a digital watch face that is slightly smart watch face capable than a true smart watch face. Also the sapphire crystal makes it a little less bright than similar models with glass. Completely happy with fit, function and build quality.

    I've had my Garmin Fenix 5X Plus for 4 months now and cannot be more happier with it. This watch does it all. As a waterproof, multisport watch, it really does it all. I've used this watch for triathlons, marathons, hiking, golfing, walking, and more. I purchased the 5X Plus for the extra battery life and have not regretted it. I only charge my watch about every week or so, but can actually go longer than that. My old garmin multisport watch had to sync/update with Garmin Connect via USB cable with my laptop, but not this watch. The bluetooth feature automatically syncs all of my activities and they are immediately available to view on my smart phone via Garmin Connect. I love this watch.

    Boyfriends Fitbit watch wasnt working so we went in to exchange it. We where told Fitbit didnt have the protection plan through bestbuy anymore and his fit bit was almost $300. This would of been his 3rd exchange through the protection plan. So we decided to try this watch out. The moment he saw it on display he wanted it. Once he got it he fell in love with it. Battery life is great. Size is big but thatz okay for him. And it's all black. Only thing he misses is the touch screen and being about to reply from the watch
