    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

    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!

    This is an amazing watch with so much capabilities. The ability to listen to music while running and recording your run patterns, heart rate, and route without a heavy phone in your pocket beats every other competitor out the water.

    GPS is a great future along with the heart rate monitor. Your able to track many activity's even weightlifting and elliptical. If you could play music from the watch it would be great

    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.

    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 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.

    More than a watch it's a life changer

    Paying this kind of money for a watch is totally insane......with that said it's been the best watch I have owned, and I have had some good ones. Casio pathfinder and a Suunto just too name a few. First I did major research on this and other high end ABC watches. I looked at all kinds and decided that the garmin was the one. It does more stuff than my phone from 10 years ago. It has maps on to track (cant zoom in on screen is my only gripe about this watch) but it has breadcrumbs and will use it's own GPS. When you download the app your going to find so many cool things, Your heart rate, your o2 level, your stress level, your sleep patterns....yes if you wear it at night it keeps track of your sleeping habits. You can add different activities to the watch, if you walk just hit that activity and start it, it will keep track of distance and much much more. It even maps it on the app. If you Mountain bike it has that, hiking and more. If you like music you download an app and listen from the watch via bluetooth. You can change the face of the watch...you can send text messages back from the watch. I found a cool archery app that keeps track of your groupings. This is my first smartwatch and will never go back. If you like smartwatches and enjoy the outdoors this rugged watch will do the trick.
