Posted by Nicole on 20th Aug 2018

Calling all athletes and outdoors people, introducing Fenix 5S Plus… a fresh range of Garmin watches that’s exactly what we’ve all been waiting for. With unimaginable features to set you up nicely for your outdoorsy/athletic adventures. These watches are the high-performance way to beat yesterday and bring your music and maps along..

There are probably too many brilliant features to give you the details on all in one blog post so here I’ll tell you about the ones that will excite you most. First up, we have some of my personal favourite’s; music is a big factor to getting anyone pumped for their journey, and with the Fenix 5S Plus you can store up to 500 songs with the ability to easily download and queue up some of your favourites. Not to mention Garmin’s contactless payment system, just like using your phone or your bank card, this watch has the capability of allowing you to breeze through your payment whilst leaving your cash and card at home.

Another smart and brilliantly handy factor of these watches, is being able to stay connected to your life by receiving emails, texts and alerts, directly to the wonderful little device on your wrist. On another upbeat note, Elevate™ wrist heart rate technology lets you monitor your heart rate without wearing a chest strap. In addition to counting steps and monitoring sleep, the watch uses heart rate to provide calories burned information and quantify the intensity of your fitness activities. It also measures your heart rate variability to calculate a stress score that helps you assess what level of activity your body is ready for.

Every Fenix 5 Plus watch features Galileo satellite reception, to connect even in most challenging environments. Each watch also provides advanced ABC (altimeter, barometer and compass) sensors for situational outdoor awareness. The built-in altimeter provides elevation data to accurately monitor ascent and descent for activities such as hiking, while the tilt-compensated three-axis electronic compass keeps your bearing — whether you’re moving or not.

All fēnix 5 Plus Series watches are packed with sophisticated training features to help monitor your form and performance including physiological metrics, running dynamics and more to track your work out stats, measure your progress and fine-tune your form. This watch also has a technology called ‘training status’ which automatically evaluates your recent exercise history and performance indicators to let you know if you’re overtraining.

These are just a few of many advantageous features of this collection and it’s very clear already that these watches are going to be selling very quickly so don’t wait to bag one for yourself!
