Rugged Endurance, Elegant Style
The Fenix 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 (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. The sapphire lens is scratch-resistant. Wi-Fi lets your watch connect to your wireless network and automatically send activity uploads for sharing on Garmin Connect.
Advanced Fitness Metrics
- Fenix 5X 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 5X 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 5X incorporates sophisticated Garmin running watch feedback on your running form by reporting multiple metrics. When used with the HRM-Run monitor, Fenix 5X reports your cadence, vertical oscillation and ground contact time. These metrics are called running dynamics, and they affect your running economy.
- The Fenix 5X isn't just for running; special feature sets help swim training and skiing too. Borrowing from the Garmin Swim, Fenix 5X tracks your distance, pace, stroke count and more. You just tell Fenix 5X 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 5X 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 5X 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 records a GPS track log creating a "breadcrumb trail" as you move. It also allows you to mark locations, such as a start/finish line, course checkpoint, or a campsite, vehicle or other point of interest. With Fenix 5X, you can create and follow courses, mark up to 1,000 locations and store up to 10,000 track points and navigate to them.
- Plan trips and share adventures with friends and family using BaseCamp.
Altimeter, Barometer and Compass
- Fenix 5X 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 5X 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
Personalize Fenix 5X with free downloads from Garmin's Connect IQ store. You can customize your watch face, add data fields and get apps and widgets that provide information at a glance.
You can also download the free Garmin Face-It watch face app to customize your Fenix 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.
Smart Notifications lets you receive emails, texts and alerts right on your watch, even if you're on the trail. Fenix 5X 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.
