Garmin Fenix 5 Plus review


Range-topping multisport Fenix gets an impressive upgrade

Hard wearing ; Stylish, rugged design ; Huge range of multi-sport features

High price ; Reduced battery life

When it comes to multisport watches, the refreshed Fenix is about as capable as they come, with new features like built-in music and contactless payments along with fully routable color topo maps. We’d like to have seen more battery and perhaps power...

Garmin Fenix 5 Plus review: The champion smart sports watch is better than ever


If you're looking for an all-action sports watch that tracks everything you could possibly need, does so reliably and consistently, and lasts an age,

Great build quality and durability ; GPS locks location quickly ; Accurate heart rate sensor ; Music makes carrying a phone unnecessary ; 10 day battery life ; 100m water proofing

Sleep tracking is inconsistent ; Battery life not quite as good as previous Fenix 5 or Forerunner 945 ; Loading music is cumbersome ; It's undeniably expensive

Garmin Fenix 5 Plus review: The best multisport watch now comes with added smarts


Garmin's Fenix 5 Plus delivers a combination of features and performance that you simply won't find anywhere else

Brilliant sports tracking ; Full-colour maps and on-the-go routing ; Spotify support

Heart rate accuracy is hit-and-miss ; Expensive

Overall, it’s a sensational bit of kit that justifies its price, which is no small statement when you consider it costs £600. If you’re looking for the best multisport watch there is, look no further.

Time is money

Fairly non-intimidating design ; Garmin Connect is great for serious workout tracking ; A fab array of features inc. Spotify support

Very expensive ; Proper hike-ready maps are expensive ; Garmin Pay support is limited at present

We wish it cost less but the Fenix 5 Plus is undeniably brilliant

I bought this watch about a month ago and wanted to put the watch through it's paces as it's supposed to be the best on the market and I wasn't disappointed in any way. I have used about 70% of it's features so far as there is so many to use and...

Very disappointing dark and murky screen, Garmin Pay useless


Extremely disappointed in this - the screen is dark and practically monochromatic, and looks nothing like the images shown on Very and elsewhere. I am sure these product images are renders rather than real life photos as the the reality is a dark and...
