It’s the first fēnix series watch to offer  full-color TOPO U.S. mapping for at-a-glance navigation and location  reference – so you can beat yesterday, and be sure of getting back. You  get advanced features such as Elevate™ wrist heart rate technology¹,  built-in activity profiles, performance metrics and training status  readings that show the fitness-enhancing effects of your workout. Smart  notifications² help you stay in touch on the go. Plus, QuickFit® bands let you tailor the look to any lifestyle or activity – no tools required. Go from workplace to workout without breaking stride.        

Rugged Endurance, Elegant Style

The fēnix 5X multisport watch features a protective PVD-coated  stainless steel bezel and buttons and a reinforced housing for extra  durability. Each watch is water-rated to 100 meters and  features advanced GPS and GLONASS satellite reception to track in more  challenging environments than GPS alone. You can count on long battery  life in each mode of operation (varies by model, depending on settings).  A bright, high-resolution, full-color Garmin Chroma Display™ with LED  backlighting assures great readability in all ambient conditions – from  harsh daylight to dim lighting. Transflective technology that reflects  and transmits light at the same time enables the watch face to become  even more readable under intense sunlight. Sapphire editions feature a  scratch-resistant sapphire lens and are also Wi-Fi®-enabled so your watch can connect to your wireless network and automatically send activity uploads for sharing on Garmin Connect.       

Wrist-based Heart Rate¹

On your wrist, 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.      

A Full-color Roadmap to Success

Whether you’re in the city or on the trail, an array of fēnix 5X  on-watch mapping and navigation features help keep you oriented and  on-course at a glance.  

  • Full-color TOPO U.S. mapping that comes preloaded; map data is  optimized for at-a-glance navigation and location tracking on your wrist
  • Round-trip Run and Round-trip Ride routing options give runners and  cyclists the ability to enter a distance they want to travel and have  the watch suggest appropriate courses
  • Easy-to-read guidance cues provide banners on the display that show upcoming turns
  • Around Me map mode displays locations nearby in a simplified  graphical interface that increases awareness and ease when navigating in  unfamiliar environments
  • Data overlays on the map highlight key information so you don’t have to switch screens while in an activity
  • GroupTrack allows you to keep tabs on your buddies for adventures  such as skiing; LiveTrack allows friends to follow your adventures in  real time²


Monitor Your Performance, Training and Recovery

Just how effective is your current training plan? fēnix 5X will help  you monitor your training and recovery so you can better prepare for a  race or training cycle. Training status  is a new performance monitoring tool that automatically evaluates your  recent exercise history and performance indicators to let you know if  you’re training productively, peaking or overreaching. The new anaerobic training effect  metric opens a window of insight to a critical dimension of training,  telling you how your training is improving your ability to push the  limits. You can even view your overall training load,  which measures your exercise volume from the last 7 days and compares  it to the optimal range for your fitness and recent training history.         

Analyze Your Technique

We’re making it easier to get the data you need to improve your form.  Let fēnix 5X measure crucial running metrics² that you can use to  analyze your performance. Biomechanical measurements such as cadence, stride length, ground contact time and balance, vertical oscillation and vertical ratio  are the key to understanding your form so you can bring your best on  race day. These metrics are available with the addition of a compatible  heart rate strap² or the compact Running Dynamics Pod, which clips right  onto your waistband. Also, take advantage of feature sets to help with  cycling and even swim training. In the water, fēnix 5X will track your  distance, pace, stroke count and more.        

Swim Profiles, Skiing, Paddle Sports, Golf and More

Beyond their running functions, fenix 5 watches also offer special  feature sets to help with swim training, skiing, golfing and paddle  sports, including stand-up paddle boarding and rowing. For swimmers, the  device tracks your distance, pace, stroke count and more. Ski/Board  mode puts speed, distance, vertical drop and an automatic run counter  (with Auto Pause for the lift line) and more at your fingertips. The  feature set for paddle sports includes stroke count, stroke rate and  even distance per stroke. Golf mode gives you yardage to the front, back  and middle of the green for any single course you’ve downloaded from Garmin Connect – and also adds enhancements such as stat tracking (fairways hit, etc.), Green View, AutoShot detection and auto measure.     

Navigate the Great Outdoors, Your Way

Each model in the fēnix 5 series provides comprehensive navigation  and tracking to guide you on and off the beaten path using GPS plus ABC  (altimeter, barometer and compass) sensor capabilities. The built-in  altimeter provides elevation data to accurately monitor ascent and  descent, while the barometer can be used to predict weather changes by  showing short-term trends in air pressure. The 3-axis electronic compass  keeps your bearing, whether you’re moving or not. In addition, there’s  an internal gyroscope to help improve position accuracy (and battery  life) in UltraTrac mode – as well as a thermometer to help you monitor  changing weather conditions. 

So Many Ways to Stay Connected

All fēnix 5 series models can support smart notifications when paired  with a compatible device. Receive emails, texts and alerts right on  your watch – whether you're on the trail, on the golf course or simply  away from your desk. Other connected features include automatic uploads  to our Garmin Connect online fitness community, live tracking and social  media sharing through our free Garmin Connect and Garmin Connect™ Mobile applications. 

Custom Apps and Watch Faces

You can customize your fēnix 5X watch with free downloads from our Connect IQ store. Change your watch face, add data fields or get apps and widgets for information at a glance. Garmin is continually working with top companies and developers to  build partnerships that add even more value to your fēnix multisport  watch. Names such as Uber, Strava, AccuWeather and many others offer  apps and enhancements that let you tailor your fēnix 5X to fit your  lifestyle in more ways than ever.  

Wear Your Personality on Your Sleeve

You can also download the free Garmin Face It™  watch face app to customize your fēnix 5X with any photo from your  smartphone. Just download the app, choose an image from your photo  library, adjust the style for time and set it as your watch’s face.  Whether it’s a scenic view from your last hike or a picture of your new  puppy, with Garmin you can add personality to your watch that’s uniquely  you. 

Running Power

Add power data to your training by downloading our Running Power app from the Connect IQ™ store  onto your compatible watch. Developed by Garmin Labs, the Running Power  app taps into metrics — such as pace, vertical oscillation, grade and  even local wind conditions — to determine the amount of power you’re  applying at the ground as you run. When you know how much power you’re  expending from minute to minute and mile to mile, you’re better able to  pace yourself, which can help keep you from tiring out too quickly. The  best news? If you already own the right Garmin devices, adding power to  your run is free. All you need is a fēnix® 5X and 1 of these 3  accessories: HRM-Run™, HRM-Tri™ or the Running Dynamics Pod
