Wrist-based Heart Rate
To provide the ultimate freedom to the ambitious athlete all fēnix 5 models include Elevate™ wrist heart rate technology that lets you monitor your heart rate without wearing a chest strap. With the fully integrated Elevate sensor on your wrist you can control at any time the intensity of your training and track daily activities with 24/7 heartrate monitoring to gain more accurate information on burned calories during the day.
Match Your Style with Interchangeable Watchbands
A selection of optional QuickFit bands in your choice of premium leather, metal or silicone makes it 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.
All You Need to Know About Your Training
You aim to get better and better, this drives you through countless training hours. fēnix 5X’s new Performance Widget holds all information easy to access in one place that will better track your fitness level and help you to train more efficient.
Training Status: Tells you how effective your training is and provides guidance on whether your workouts are productive and paying off.
VO2Max Estimator: Crunches running or cycling performance data to estimate the maximum volume of oxygen you can consume per minute and gives you an indication of your level of fitness.
Training Load: Tells you how hard you train over a period of time no matter which activity.
Recovery Advisor: With Recovery Timer that tells you the recommended recovery time counting down from your last workout.
More advanced indicators like your functional threshold power (FTP) and Lactate Threshold help you to better judge your actual performance level during cycling or running and the Race Predictor eventually estimates your ideal finish time for a 5k, 10k, half marathon and marathon distance races based on your current VO2max number. Training Effect 2.0 will provide beyond this aerobic and anaerobic benefit scores so that you understand whether your high-intensity interval training really pays off.
Step-up Your Running
Now you can go further with your running data. Garmin training features that tap into extended physiological metrics and advanced running dynamics can help improve your form and overall performance. These metrics include performance condition that compares your actual condition to your average fitness level, running cadence, and stride length. Make every run a personal challenge, compete against others on Strava Live Segments, get alerts for segment starts and finishes, view leader-board rankings, and see how your current effort compares to your personal record.
Once paired with a compatible heart rate chest strap such as the HRM-Run™, you can access additional fēnix 5X metrics like Stress Score to measure your actual stress level based on your heart rate variability, vertical oscillation and ratio or ground contact time and balance to make your running more efficient.
fēnix 5X comes loaded with features that make all the difference on the trail. The Auto Climb/Run switch makes sure you get in any environment the right metrics – go for pace and distance once running in the flat and automatically switch to accumulated ascent and vertical speed once you start climbing. Use detailed TOPO mapping for better situational awareness in alpine environment. For the Ultra distance runner fēnix 5X provides a special mode that allows you to extend tracking to take it much further and track up to 100 h in the new gyro-reinforced UltraTrac® mode.
A True Multi Sport Talent
For the multi-sport athlete of any type fēnix 5X is the perfect partner. Use dedicated activity profiles for Swim-Run or Triathlon or create the multisport profile that suits your training routine or race day. Transition easily from one activity to the next with just one button press to make sure all your training splits are taken into account.
The Watch for All Sorts of Sports
Beyond their running functions, fēnix 5X watches also offer special feature sets to support cycling, swim training, skiing, golfing and paddle sports, including stand-up paddle boarding and rowing. For cycling fēnix 5X supports speed and distance and all cycling dynamics once paired with a power meter, for swimmers, the device tracks your distance, stroke count and more. Ski/Board mode puts speed, distance, vertical drop and an automatic run counter 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.
For cyclists, fēnix 5X also offers cycling-specific routings and is compatible with the Varia™ line of smart bike lights, rearview radar and wearable Varia Vision™ displays that aid in situational awareness on the road.
Navigate the Great Outdoors, Your Way
Each fēnix 5 guides you safely on and off the beaten path combining GPS/GLONASS positioning, advanced sensors and well known Garmin navigation features like TracBack™. To provide the most accurate information the device auto-calibrates its sensors using GPS. The built-in altimeter provides elevation data to accurately monitor ascent and descent, while the thermometer and 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.
So Many Ways to Stay Connected

Another fēnix 5 feature is GroupTrack that allows you to pair your device through Garmin Connect™ so you can keep tabs of your connected buddies, and they can keep tabs on you when you get separated during an activity.
