Garmin Fenix 5S Review

If you do not want to wear, the large Fenix 5X, you can always look at the Fenix 5S that is also a Multisport watch but smaller. Athletes who have used this fitness tracker are more than pleased with the design, especially women. Health experts found the day-to-day tracker outstanding. The only difference is that this watch does not have the advanced mapping.

  • Joggers found they could wear the watch even after a run, as it is comfortable to wear. They love the fact that it keeps accurate track of their running and can use it as a step tracker with notifications from their phone.
  • Another benefit most outdoor enthusiasts like is the screen that is visible to read in different lighting conditions. The backlight is great to use in the dark.
  • Once starting your workout, you select the activity you want to keep track of and you can customize your own exercise workout if not presented by the fitness tracker. All sports users love this feature.
  • For basic fitness tracking, consumers found the watch easy to use and keep track of their daily activity and sleep accurately.
  • Another highlight experts like is the continuous heart rate monitoring throughout the day. Another important point mentioned by athletes is that you can pair it with the HRM chest strap.
  • Further, you can receive 3rd-party notifications and most sports trainers use Whatsapp and love it.
  • The GPS according to most triathlon athletes is accurate and follows their route without any problem.

Cons / What Customers Don't Like:

  • Using the buttons and scrolling up, down has a learning curve according to some users and takes getting use to.
  • The majority of exercise fanatics love the notifications sent to the smartwatch, but it is basic and you cannot interact with them.
