    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!

    It is an upgrade from my Phoenix 5. It has improved GPS capability and O2 measurements amongst other improvements.

    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.

    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

    My do it all Garmin Fenix 5X Plus is a must have. Comfortable, sleep with it every night. Music app is great with my earbuds and GPS is very useful while hunting or fishing or just hiking. So far have not had any issues.

    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.

    So far this watch has been pretty great, it's able to track all sorts of stuff like HR, steps, sleep, and floors climbed. Although most fitness trackers can also track those basics I like that this watch shows more detail when tracking exercises, runs, and bike rides than my old Fitbit Blaze. The O2 sensor doesn't seem to work that great though because whenever I try to view that data on the app, it crashes. I've used the built in Garmin Pay and music and so far it's worked without any issues. The built in GPS is also very convenient so that I can go on runs/bike rides without having to take my phone.

    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 use this watch primarily for lap swimming in conjunction with the Garmin HRM-Swim heart rate monitor. The wrist based monitor works great out of the water, but cannot monitor your heart rate while swimming. The watch is perfect for the triathlete, and the pulse oximetry capability is ideal for those training at altitude. It is well built, and the sapphire crystal protects it against scratches from daily use. The wifi, Bluetooth and gps functions work well and add to its versatility. For those who want to listen to music or audiobooks while working out (NOT while swimming as Bluetooth can't transmit very far in water) and do not want to carry their phone with them, the ability to store and play music on the watch is an added plus. As per the description (and not my experience, so far), it can also be used to track various other activities, such as skiing, rowing, etc.

    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.
