Garmin Fenix 5X Review

The Garmin Fenix 5X is a huge watch with power. According to athletes, it has a powerful battery and tracking capabilities. We looked at the different comments from runners, swimmers, and cyclists to find out what they liked and disliked about this smartwatch.

Pros / What Customers Like:

  • The first thing we noted is that all athletes liked the built-in heart rate sensor. This is a big plus, as they do not have to strap on their heart rate chest strap anymore.
  • The fact that it has a water rating of up to 100-meter is loved by all swimmers and even scuba divers.
  • The screen is sunlight-ready and joggers loved the color display and found reading the screen while running outstanding.
  • From runners to cyclists found the Garmin Connect app easy to use and offered them a variety of sports they could select to keep track of their fitness activities.
  • Many professionals praised the battery life as it lasts more than a day while tracking their activity and sleep.
  • Users doing an ultra-marathon found using the GPS with the watch accurate as it tracks their distance and elevation without any problem.
  • Backpackers found the compass a big help and the fact that they could connect to GLONASS a welcomed feature while hiking.
  • Cyclists found they could use Strava Live Segment and connect the fitness wearable to an ATN+ sensor to track cadence and their power.

Cons / What Customers Don't Like:

  • Although the watch has a QuickFit system to swap straps users found out they need a special tool or had to take the watch to a jeweler to help them out.


If you are an adventurer you will love, the Fenix 5X as it has a long battery life with built-in maps. The amazing thing is this smartwatch is suitable for all sports users, runners, swimmers, to golfers.
