    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.

    Pricey, no doubt, but worth it.

    I will say I've been skeptical of spending this amount of money on a watch, and even after only having it for 5 days, can say it was worth it. This is my first Garmin watch, so believe me I was hesitant to pull the trigger on that amount of for a watch, but glad I did. With that being said - purchased on June 1, 2019 & now June 5th - still at %51 battery life. I've downloaded multiple faces, updated a bunch of fields, added widgets and downloaded over 200 + songs and I've worn it consistently and used it for music and tracking. Being the Fenix 5X Plus, was a little worried about the size, but for 6'2" 215lb guy, not a bad fit, it certainly doesn't feel heavy either. In the past I was so used to the touch screen, so that's a bit of a challenge getting used to, but totally worth the challenge. Being able to get alerts and read certain amounts, connect headphones and not kill your battery all while taking information in and still having battery life is worth it. Kind of funny how we spend money on a watch to last a week or two, when a normal watch with technology can last years - however in this day technology reigns and we use it to our advantage. I would highly recommend this watch for those who are on the fence, as I was and super glad I did go with it. If you're budgeting, I would not recommend splurging money you don't have, but if you can afford it - not the payments - then I would say go for it. With the return policy, that also helps if you have buyers remorse, but I don't see that in my future. Solid build Garmin.
