Serious Style That Stands Up to the Roughest Conditions
Fenix 5S features a protective stainless steel bezel and buttons with reinforced housing for extra durability. A sunlight-visible high-resolution color Garmin Chroma Display with LED backlight lets you access your data in any light. Fenix 5S is water rated 100 meters and has a battery life of up to 40 hours in UltraTrac battery saver mode, 14 hours in GPS mode and up to 9 days in watch mode (all depending on settings).
Advanced Fitness Metrics
- Fenix 5S is packed with training features to tell you about your form and fitness. The first is the VO2 max estimator. When used with a heart rate monitor, Fenix 5S crunches data, including your running speed, beats per minute and heart rate variability to estimate the maximum volume of oxygen you can consume per minute. Track changes to your VO2 max to see your fitness gains and to compare with your peers. Other fitness metrics include recovery advisor with a recovery timer and recovery check, plus a Race Predictor, which estimates your ideal finish time based on your current VO2 max number.
- Fenix 5S incorporates sophisticated Garmin running watch feedback on your running form by reporting multiple metrics. When used with the HRM-Run monitor, Fenix 5S reports your cadence, vertical oscillation and ground contact time. These metrics are called running dynamics, and they affect your running economy.
- The Fenix 5S isn't just for running; special feature sets help swim training and skiing too. Borrowing from the Garmin Swim, Fenix 5S tracks your distance, pace, stroke count and more. You just tell Fenix 5S the size of the pool you're swimming in and begin your workout. 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. You can even use your Fenix 5S as a glove-friendly remote, via ANT+, for the VIRB and VIRB Elite action cameras.
Navigate Your Way
- No other navigator GPS plus ABC (altimeter, barometer and compass) wristwatch offers you the combined training functions and Garmin's leading GPS technology. Fenix 5S provides comprehensive navigation and tracking functionalities to guide you on and off the beaten track. Its built-in sensors provide information on heading, elevation and weather changes.
- It allows you to mark locations, such as a start/finish line, course checkpoint, or a campsite, vehicle or other point of interest. With Fenix 5S, you can create and follow courses and mark up to 1,000 locations and navigate to them.
- Plan trips and share adventures with friends and family using BaseCamp.
Altimeter, Barometer and Compass
- Fenix 5S is equipped with ABC sensors to provide relevant real-time information. 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.
- Fenix 5S auto-calibrates its ABC sensors using its GPS receiver and also auto sets the time based on location.
- For an extremely accurate temperature reading, pair it with Garmin's Tempe External Temperature Sensor.
Custom Apps and Watch Faces

Smart Notifications lets you receive emails, texts and alerts right on your watch, even if you're on the trail. Fenix 5S receives the wireless signal from a compatible iPhone 4s (or newer) or Android smartphone and lets you know you have a message, displaying the text on its own screen whenever you're ready to read it.
