Garmin Fenix 5S Plus

October 30, 2018

 

A few months ago I transitioned from a Garmin Vivoactive 3 to the Fenix 5S Plus and it honestly has SO many features that it has taken me this long to get used to all of them! A huge reason for my transition was the built in routable TOPO maps. Not only can I keep track of my mileage and fitness specs while hiking but I can also read maps right on my watch as I am hiking along. While I still have and use my Garmin In Reach, I find myself pulling it out a lot less on the trail because most all the features I need for the trail are now right on my wrist. Full-color TOPO mapping comes preloaded with map data optimized for at-a-glance navigation and location tracking, multinetwork satellite reception to track in more challenging environments, and built in altimeter, barometer and compass. 

 

The Fenix 5S Plus which I have been wearing is made especially for women with a 42 mm case size and features a bright, sunlight readable 1.2-inch display, which is almost a 20% increase over the fēnix 5S, meaning users don’t have to sacrifice screen size for a watch fit for smaller wrists. Since we women also love color and variety, the watch comes in four different colors, including a stunning rose gold-tone with white band!

 

The Fenix 5 Plus series is THE next generation of GPS multisport watches with built-in routable TOPO maps, storage for music playlists, Garmin Pay™ contactless payments and SO MUCH MORE.
