For  athletes and outdoor adventurers who want the ultimate in a multisport  on-wrist trainer, the ultra-rugged fēnix 5X Plus is here. It’s our first  fēnix series watch  to offer a wrist-based Pulse Ox Acclimation sensor for blood oxygen  saturation awareness at high altitudes. Other highlights include  routable color TOPO maps, wrist heart rate, a music player that lets you  store and enjoy up to 1,000 songs — plus Garmin Pay, our contactless payment solution. 

Your Roadmap to Success

Whether  you’re in the city or on the trail, your fēnix sport watch’s mapping  and navigation features help keep you oriented and on course. Full-color  TOPO mapping comes preloaded, with map data optimized for at-a-glance  navigation and location tracking. The maps feature Trendline popularity  routing, which uses billions of miles of Garmin Connect™ data  to help you find and follow the best trails and routes. Especially  helpful when you’re away from your home turf, this feature lets you  quickly see the most-used, locally validated pathways.  

Do Better Going Higher

When  the terrain gets steeper and you have some serious climbing ahead, your  fēnix 5X Plus has special ascent features that can really help. The  ClimbPro page provides real-time information on current and upcoming  climbs. See the climb gradient, distance and elevation gain for each  ascent segment as well as a progress marker that shows how much farther  you have to go. On strenuous climbs, the watch’s Pulse Ox Acclimation  sensor provides additional information. This sensor uses light beams to  gauge the absorption of hemoglobin in your bloodstream, so you can  assess how well your body’s oxygen levels are adjusting to the thinner  air at higher altitudes.     

Pulse Ox and Advanced Sleep Tracking

The  Pulse Ox sensor on your fēnix 5X Plus watch uses light beams at your  wrist to gauge your body’s blood oxygen saturation level. Turn on the  Pulse Ox feature to gauge your SpO2 overnight — or use it to take a spot  measurement anytime you want to check how well your body is absorbing  oxygen. For added insight on your sleep patterns, fēnix 5X Plus also  tracks your light, deep and REM stages along with your movements  throughout the night. When you wake up, it’s easy to review and compare  your sleep stats in the Garmin Connect app. 

Multinetwork Navigation

Every  fēnix 5 Plus Series watch features multinetwork (GPS, GLONASS and  Galileo) satellite reception to track in more challenging environments  than GPS alone. In addition to map-based guidance, each watch also  provides a set of ABC (altimeter, barometer and compass) sensor  capabilities for outdoor navigation. 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.  

Advanced Performance Metrics

All  fēnix 5 Plus Series watches are packed with sophisticated training  features to help monitor your form and performance. Tap into physiological metrics, running dynamics and more to track your workout stats, measure your progress and fine-tune your form. Training status  automatically evaluates your recent exercise history and performance  indicators to let you know if you’re overtraining, maintaining or  peaking. An anaerobic training effect metric helps you see how your training is improving your ability to push the limits. You can also 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.  Special preloaded activity profiles are provided for swimming, running,  biking, hiking, skiing, rowing, paddle boarding and more. For added  motivation, download advanced workouts and training plans from Garmin  Connect.  

Wrist-based Heart Rate

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.  

A Little Traveling Music

Got  a power song that gets you pumped up for a race or tough workout? Now  with fēnix 5X Plus, you can enjoy phone-free listening on the go, with  up to 1,000 songs stored right on your watch. It’s easy to download  music and queue up your favorites so you can enjoy them anywhere,  anytime through wirelessly connected Bluetooth headphones (sold  separately). fēnix 5 Plus Series is also compatible with some of your  favorite streaming services — and more are being added all the time. If  you have a premium membership to these compatible services  then every track in their massive library is yours to download for  offline listening on your watch. And check back soon to see who we’re  adding next to the list.  

Pay with a Wave of Your Hand

To  help keep pace with your active lifestyle, fēnix 5X Plus features our  Garmin Pay contactless payment solution. Use it to pay for purchases so  you can breeze through checkout lines while leaving your cash and cards  at home. It works just about anywhere there’s a scanner for contactless  payments.  

Stay Smartly Connected

All fēnix 5 Plus Series models 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, GroupTrack and social media  sharing.  

Safety and Tracking Features

fēnix 5X Plus provides safety and tracking features4  to help provide a little extra peace of mind for you and your loved  ones. If anything should happen — and your watch is paired with your  compatible smartphone — hold the light button down until you feel the  watch vibrate 3 times. This activates the assistance feature, which  discreetly sends a message with your real-time location to your  preloaded emergency contacts. That way, help has an easier time finding  you. This watch also has incident detection, which automatically sends a  message with your real-time location to preloaded emergency contacts if  an incident is detected during an outdoor walk, run, hike or bike  activity. 

Premium Materials, Robust Performance

Crafted  of premium-grade materials, the fēnix 5 Plus Series is available in a  variety of finish choices, including PVD-coated stainless steel bezel  with treated silicone watch band, or — for those who want the comfort of  a lighter weight metal that’s 30% stronger than steel, and — there’s a  deluxe titanium bezel version with brushed titanium bracelet. On either  version, a bright, high-resolution, full-color Garmin Chroma  Display™ with LED backlighting assures great readability in all ambient  conditions. And transflective technology that reflects and transmits  light at the same time enables the watch face to become even more  readable under intense sunlight. For added scratch resistance, all fēnix  5X Plus series models incorporate a high-strength domed sapphire lens. 

Custom Apps, Watch Faces and Bands

You can customize any fēnix 5 Plus Series 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. There’s also a wide selection of QuickFit® bands  in your choice of premium leather, metal or silicone — so it’s easy to  mix and match styles to go with any sport or activity. No tools are  required to make the transformation. Just swap, click and go. 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 5 and one of these  accessories: HRM-Run™, HRM-Tri™ or the Running Dynamics Pod. Learn more.  

Try These Top-notch Headphones

When  you’re taking your tunes on the run, make sure you have the right  headphones for the job. fēnix 5 Plus devices pair effortlessly with a  wide variety of Bluetooth wireless technology-enabled headphones, and  we’ve identified some great options for you, including buds that stay  firmly in place during your most intense runs and have marathon-ready  battery life. Learn more about the headphones that will be the perfect match for your new watch.    ¹Activity Tracking and Fitness Metric Accuracy
