Garmin fēnix 5 Plus GPS Sportswatch Adds Maps, Music, Garmin Pay and Wrist-based Pulse Ox


Garmin today announced the fēnix 5 Plus series, its next generation of GPS multisport watches with built-in routable topographical maps, storage for music, Garmin Pay contactless payment solution and Pulse Oximeter for altitude acclimation awareness.

Like other fēnix 5 watches, the fēnix 5S

Plus, fēnix 5 Plus and fēnix 5X Plus are built for athletes and adventures of all sizes. These rugged watches range in size from 42-51mm and all boast a sunlight readable display. The fēnix 5S Plus features a 1.2-inch display, which is almost a 20% increase over the fēnix 5S.

Featuring wrist-based heart rate and all of the multisport and smart connectivity features of the previous fēnix 5 models, each of the watches in the Plus series will also include built-in map data optimized for at-a-glance navigation and location tracking. These maps can be used with the round-trip course creator that allows runners and cyclists to enter a distance they would like to run or ride, then select a route from a list of appropriate courses to choose from. First introduced in Garmin's cycling computers, the Trendline popularity routing feature will use Garmin Connect data to help users find and follow the best trails and running routes based on billions of miles logged by previous Garmin users.

The fēnix 5S Plus, fēnix 5 Plus, and fēnix 5X Plus will also offer on-device music storage, up to 500 songs, for phone-free listening. You can download offline playlists from select music streaming services like iHeartRadio, Deezer, and more, or transfer music from a computer directly to the watch. Once the playlist is loaded, pair the device with compatible Bluetooth headphones and start listening. All sizes of the Plus series will also include Garmin Pay, a contactless payment solution, meaning fēnix Plus wearers can leave their cash and credit cards at home, but still be able to grab a beverage or bite after a long day on the mountain. Utilizing their Garmin Pay wallet, users have the same rewards and benefits of the physical cards, with the convenience of having them right on the wrist.

Each fēnix 5 Plus model is packed with training features to help monitor form and performance. Users can tap into physiological metrics, running dynamics and more to track workout stats, measure progress and fine-tune form. Training status automatically evaluates recent exercise history to let users know if they're overtraining, maintaining or peaking. The fēnix 5 Plus series are Connect IQ compatible, so users customize their watch with widgets, data fields, watch faces and apps. When paired with a compatible smartphone, users can get call, text and email notifications right on their wrist. Additionally, users can customize the look of their watch with QuickFit bands.

Every fēnix 5 Plus watch features multinetwork satellite reception, now including Galileo to track in more challenging environments than GPS alone.

Available in two finishes, users can choose between a PVD-coated stainless-steel bezel with silicone watch band, or for a lighter material, a titanium bezel version with brushed titanium bracelet. Each version features a full-color Garmin Chroma Display with LED backlighting and is water-rated to 100 meters. The fēnix 5S Plus can get up to 7 days in smartwatch mode and up to 4 hours in GPS and Music mode;6 the fēnix 5 Plus can get up to 10 days of battery life in smartwatch mode and 8 hours in GPS and Music mode; and the fēnix 5X Plus can get up to 20 days of battery life in smartwatch mode and 13 hours in GPS and Music mode.

Available in Q2 2018, the fēnix 5 Plus series will have suggested retail prices ranging from $699.99 to $1,149.99.
