    You get what you pay for...

    I have had several different, low-end Garmin models and something always went wrong with it. I finally took the plunge and spent some money for this puppy right here. Man, it is definitely worth every cent I paid for it. It is amazing. It just does everything better than the low-end models. If you truly want to keep track of everything you do all day and want the customizable faces and so you can see what is important to you, then this is the watch for you. If you lift weights, this thing keeps track of your reps and your sets and will allow you to adjust your weight and reps if it's a little off. They do have auto sets but it's in Beta and it's not very good because it doesn't account for rests during sets so you can't squeeze a few more reps in. Once you stop or pause, it will end your set. Really sucks. I wish I could give it 5 stars, but for some reason all of my Garmins have one issue in common... BLUETOOTH CONNECTIVITY ISSUES! This drives me crazy. They need to just switch to Bluetooth 5.0 already. Sometimes my watch will be disconnected and I had no idea or I will go to sync my watch through the app and I will see that my watch is disconnected. Can be very frustrating. Thank goodness it's very easy to reconnect. Double edge sword.

    Great functionality as a smart watch and fitness.

    This watch is exceptional for those people that are fitness oriented but don't want to compromise the convenience of utilizing a smart device. Great battery life, above average GPS tracking abilities, built-in pulse oximeter, accurate HR monitoring and many other useful features. The only compromise I found with this watch is in the strength training settings. The automatic exercise detector is somewhat inaccurate and requires constant user correction when editing the exercise summary of what strength training activities were completed during your session.

    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.

    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

    Great watch with awesome features but ended up returning. Missed the touchscreen that was on my old Garmin. It was very inconvenient to control my apps & music while running. Still giving 4 stars because I would have kept it otherwise.

    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

    Has lots of features. But I got the larger of the styles and had an issue with it being comfortable to wear, also it kept losing connection with my phone (iPhone)

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Good device. Does not integrate with iPhone as well as Apple Watch. Much longer battery life than Apple Watch.

    This is a Georges watch, however it did way to much for an average athlete like me. For the price and what I would use it for it did not make sense.
