Does this last 2 weeks on 1 charge? No? I guess not so great then, just mostly great

Well my 5x does without any issue.I am assuming plus is even more energy efficient

Maybe not the 5 but 8 days isn't bad I'd say. Plus is potentially less efficient given it does more.
Great price indeed
It was 349 before New year.

Plus is less efficient due to faster chipset and more features and 5X has a bigger battery than the 5 and 5S but in an age where Apple has made daily charging the norm for smartwatches, a Garmin that lasts 1-3 weeks on a charge is totally fine in my opinion. I charge my 6X maybe once a week but I use it a lot during the day - it’s too big for me though so I am dropping back to the smaller size.
Not sure it was, I think that was not the sapphire version

5x is the better updated model
whoah. Really like a design of this one.

I disagree ,5X is older Gen than plus model. Fenix 5X Plus would be successor to 5x

6x one day lol
This was posted before at 349 although when I logged in to view the site, VAT wasn't included, so the previous posted price is pretty much the same.

I don't think this is good value compared to the Fenix 6 Pro which can often be had for only 80 quid more.

Depends. What do you value more? This is the Titanium and Sapphire glass version 5 Plus vs 6 Pro which is mineral glass and stainless steel. £80 is still a lot of money and you don’t get a lot more - slightly bigger display, better widgets and more storage. The Titanium 5 Plus is a superb watch and retailed at £700 originally - it’s a serious watch.
The problem with the Sapphire glass is that it isn't as clear as the plain glass so the display clarity is worse vs bog standard- I am talking from experience with the Fenix 5.

I place zero value on it being sapphire and titanium personally. Titanium is more likely to scratch than stainless steel.

What something retailed for originally is no identification of how much something is actually worth. You'd be crazy to buy this over a Fenix 6 Pro, assuming the usual suspects drop down to 480-ish quid which they seem to do each month.

No climpro pacepro or animated workouts though. Plus the screen is easier to read on the 6

You can’t judge someone because they don’t want to pay £80 more. Sapphire obviously is in demand because people do pay more for it and as to clarity, that’s not totally the glass. The titanium version is a good deal lighter and more comfortable as a result, I just bought the titanium 6 and I would rather have this. Titanium does scratch more than the steel version but both scratch anyway.

It is but if you know those are things you want then you know you already want the 6. I wouldn’t go back now but if I hadn’t bought a 6 or 6X I wouldn’t have rushed to buy one.

Almost great, much better than I thought.

Battery performance:4 up to 12 days in smartwatch mode and 8 hours in GPS mode with music (depending on settings)

Titanium is so much lighter. So in a big watch it's a big deal.

You psycho madman
I have a 5X and would NEVER buy any watch without Sapphire glass. Every single watch I own has Sapphire glass and is perfect as new. Anyone saying they don't value Sapphire on a watch is on drugs. Also - the glass is perfectly clear. Every non-sapphire watch I have owned has scratched easily. Titanium is also a definite selling point - the stainless steel on the Fenix is rubbish - mine got a huge dent in it in the first week of ownership and I don't even know how - didn't hit anything hard.

Also - not sure what Garmin have done, but recently my 5X has become superfast - literally like a totally different watch. Everything is now lightning fast and working properly - has never been like that since I bought it. They have massively improved something via firmware. Also my 5X battery has always lasted weeks not days between charges.

Mine says 15.20

It has suddenly become lightning fast with no delay on anything. It's so weird. It's like a brand new watch. Never been like this ever and I've had it for ages. It changed and became like this after the latest firmware update. Also, I found there are loads of added features I can now set on my phone - it also updates instantly on my watch - none of these were there before. I can also change and customise absolutely everything imaginable on every watch face now instantly which I could never do before via my phone - it's really cool. It took them long enough to sort out the firmware - I gave up contacting Garmin over a year ago regarding problems with the firmware.
