Garmin has announced its latest fēnix 5 GPS smartwatch series including fēnix 5, fēnix 5S and fēnix 5X. If you have a preference for minimal and elegant design, the fēnix 5S may draw your more attention.
The fēnix 5S is an advanced and beautifully designed multisport GPS smartwatch that weighs 2.4 oz (with silicone band), and its watchcase measures 1.7 x 1.7 x 0.6 inches. As we can see from the images, the smartwatch shows off a timeless rounded analog watch design, and its stainless steel finish delivers premium and stylish aesthetic style.
Meanwhile, the smartwatch comes in multiple optional finishes, and multiple interchangeable watchbands are respectively made from premium leather, metal and silicone. This means that you can easily mix them and match your favorite style.
The fēnix 5S features advanced GPS and GLONASS satellite receptions so it has the ability to track more challenging environments than GPS alone.
Furthermore, the smartwatch acts as an advanced fitness tracker that not only tracks your daily activity and sleep quality, but also comes with preloaded activity profiles including running, cycling, swimming, skiing, paddle sports, golf, and more, so fēnix 5S also monitors various fitness metrics during your workout including those advanced training metrics like lactate threshold, cadence and stride length for running, stroke count and pace for swimming, and more.
Moreover, the smartwatch has an integrated heart rate monitor that tracks your heart rate, and using the data, fēnix 5S also provides calories burned info and more accurate activity data. Its full-color Garmin Chroma display with LED backlit clearly shows you tracking data even under intense sunlight.
Using built-in Bluetooth connectivity, the smartwatch wirelessly syncs tracking data to its custom app, and you can also use it to change your fēnix 5S’s watch face, add data fields or customize widgets. Additionally, the fēnix 5S also receives notifications from Your Smartphone, and its rechargeable battery offers up to 8 days of usage in smartwatch mode or up to 13 hours in GPS mode.
