For athletes and outdoor adventurers who want the ultimate in a multisport on-wrist trainer, the ultra-rugged fēnix 5X Plus is here. It’s our first fēnix series watch to offer a wrist-based Pulse Ox Acclimation sensor for blood oxygen saturation awareness at high altitudes. Other highlights include routable color TOPO maps, wrist heart rate, a music player that lets you store and enjoy up to 1,000 songs — plus Garmin Pay, our contactless payment solution.

Your Roadmap to Success

Whether you’re in the city or on the trail, your fēnix sport watch’s mapping and navigation features help keep you oriented and on course. Full-color TOPO mapping comes preloaded, with map data optimized for at-a-glance navigation and location tracking. The maps feature Trendline popularity routing, which uses billions of miles of Garmin Connect data to help you find and follow the best trails and routes. Especially helpful when you’re away from your home turf, this feature lets you quickly see the most-used, locally validated pathways.

Your Roadmap to Success

Do Better Going Higher

When the terrain gets steeper and you have some serious climbing ahead, your fēnix 5X Plus has special ascent features that can really help. The ClimbPro page provides real-time information on current and upcoming climbs. See the climb gradient, distance and elevation gain for each ascent segment as well as a progress marker that shows how much farther you have to go. On strenuous climbs, the watch’s Pulse Ox Acclimation sensor provides additional information. This sensor uses light beams to gauge the absorption of hemoglobin in your bloodstream, so you can assess how well your body’s oxygen levels are adjusting to the thinner air at higher altitudes.   

Do Better Going Higher

Pulse Ox and Advanced Sleep Tracking

The Pulse Ox sensor on your fēnix 5X Plus watch uses light beams at your wrist to gauge your body’s blood oxygen saturation level. Turn on the Pulse Ox feature to gauge your SpO2 overnight — or use it to take a spot measurement anytime you want to check how well your body is absorbing oxygen. For added insight on your sleep patterns, fēnix 5X Plus also tracks your light, deep and REM stages along with your movements throughout the night. When you wake up, it’s easy to review and compare your sleep stats in the Garmin Connect app.

Multinetwork Navigation

Every fēnix 5 Plus Series watch features multinetwork (GPS, GLONASS and Galileo) satellite reception to track in more challenging environments than GPS alone. In addition to map-based guidance, each watch also provides a set of ABC (altimeter, barometer and compass) sensor capabilities for outdoor navigation. The built-in altimeter provides elevation data to accurately monitor ascent and descent for activities such as hiking, while the tilt-compensated three-axis electronic compass keeps your bearing — whether you’re moving or not.

Multinetwork Navigation

Advanced Performance Metrics

All fēnix 5 Plus Series watches are packed with sophisticated training features to help monitor your form and performance. Tap into physiological metrics, running dynamics and more to track your workout stats, measure your progress and fine-tune your form. Training status automatically evaluates your recent exercise history and performance indicators to let you know if you’re overtraining, maintaining or peaking. An anaerobic training effect metric helps you see how your training is improving your ability to push the limits. You can also view your overall training load, which measures your exercise volume from the last 7 days and compares it to the optimal range for your fitness and recent training history. Special preloaded activity profiles are provided for swimming, running, biking, hiking, skiing, rowing, paddle boarding and more. For added motivation, download advanced workouts and training plans from Garmin Connect.

Advanced Performance Metrics

Wrist-based Heart Rate

On another upbeat note, Elevate wrist heart rate technology lets you monitor your heart rate without wearing a chest strap. In addition to counting steps and monitoring sleep, the watch uses heart rate to provide calories burned information and quantify the intensity of your fitness activities. It also measures your heart rate variability to calculate a stress score that helps you assess what level of activity your body is ready for.

Wrist-based Heart Rate

A Little Traveling Music

Got a power song that gets you pumped up for a race or tough workout? Now with fēnix 5X Plus, you can enjoy phone-free listening on the go, with up to 1,000 songs stored right on your watch. It’s easy to download music and queue up your favorites so you can enjoy them anywhere, anytime through wirelessly connected Bluetooth headphones (sold separately). fēnix 5 Plus Series is also compatible with some of your favorite streaming services — and more are being added all the time. If you have a premium membership to these compatible services then every track in their massive library is yours to download for offline listening on your watch. And check back soon to see who we’re adding next to the list.

A Little Traveling Music

Pay with a Wave of Your Hand

To help keep pace with your active lifestyle, fēnix 5X Plus features our Garmin Pay contactless payment solution. Use it to pay for purchases so you can breeze through checkout lines while leaving your cash and cards at home. It works just about anywhere there’s a scanner for contactless payments.

Pay with a Wave of Your Hand

Stay Smartly Connected

All fēnix 5 Plus Series models support smart notifications when paired with a compatible device. Receive emails, texts and alerts right on your watch — whether you're on the trail, on the golf course or simply away from your desk. Other connected features include automatic uploads to our Garmin Connect online fitness community, live tracking, GroupTrack and social media sharing.

Stay Smartly Connected

Safety and Tracking Features

fēnix 5X Plus provides safety and tracking features4 to help provide a little extra peace of mind for you and your loved ones. If anything should happen — and your watch is paired with your compatible smartphone — hold the light button down until you feel the watch vibrate 3 times. This activates the assistance feature, which discreetly sends a message with your real-time location to your preloaded emergency contacts. That way, help has an easier time finding you. This watch also has incident detection, which automatically sends a message with your real-time location to preloaded emergency contacts if an incident is detected during an outdoor walk, run, hike or bike activity.

Premium Materials, Robust Performance

Crafted of premium-grade materials, the fēnix 5 Plus Series is available in a variety of finish choices, including PVD-coated stainless steel bezel with treated silicone watch band, or — for those who want the comfort of a lighter weight metal that’s 30% stronger than steel, and — there’s a deluxe titanium bezel version with brushed titanium bracelet. On either version, a bright, high-resolution, full-color Garmin Chroma Display™ with LED backlighting assures great readability in all ambient conditions. And transflective technology that reflects and transmits light at the same time enables the watch face to become even more readable under intense sunlight. For added scratch resistance, all fēnix 5X Plus series models incorporate a high-strength domed sapphire lens.

Custom Apps, Watch Faces and Bands

You can customize any fēnix 5 Plus Series watch with free downloads from our Connect IQ™ store. Change your watch face, add data fields or get apps and widgets for information at a glance. There’s also a wide selection of QuickFit® bands in your choice of premium leather, metal or silicone — so it’s 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. With Garmin, you can add personality to your watch that’s uniquely you.

Custom Apps, Watch Faces and Bands

Running Power

Add power data to your training by downloading our Running Power app from the Connect IQ store onto your compatible watch. Developed by Garmin Labs, the Running Power app taps into metrics — such as pace, vertical oscillation, grade and even local wind conditions — to determine the amount of power you’re applying at the ground as you run. When you know how much power you’re expending from minute to minute and mile to mile, you’re better able to pace yourself, which can help keep you from tiring out too quickly. The best news? If you already own the right Garmin devices, adding power to your run is free. All you need is a fēnix 5 and one of these accessories: HRM-Run™, HRM-Tri™ or the Running Dynamics Pod. Learn more.

 

Try These Top-notch Headphones

When you’re taking your tunes on the run, make sure you have the right headphones for the job. fēnix 5 Plus devices pair effortlessly with a wide variety of Bluetooth wireless technology-enabled headphones, and we’ve identified some great options for you, including buds that stay firmly in place during your most intense runs and have marathon-ready battery life. Learn more about the headphones that will be the perfect match for your new watch.
