Rugged Endurance, Elegant Style

Each watch is water-rated to 100 meters and features advanced GPS and GLONASS satellite reception to track in more challenging environments. A bright, high-resolution, full-color Garmin Chroma Display™ with LED backlighting.

Monitor Your Performance, Training and Recovery
fēnix 5X will help you monitor your training and recovery. 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. You can even view your overall training load, which measures your exercise volume from the last 7 days.
Analyze Your Technique
Biomechanical measurements such as cadence, stride length, ground contact time and balance, vertical oscillation and vertical ratio are all measured. 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.
Swim Profiles, Skiing, Paddle Sports, Golf and More
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 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
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. 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
