GARMINFenix 5 Plus GPS Sapphire Titanium Watch (Solar Flare Orange)
Description:Multisport GPS watch with maps, music, metrics and more

For athletes and outdoor adventurers, the watches of the fenix 5 Plus Series are the high-performance way to beat yesterday and bring your maps and music along. These rugged, premium-crafted watches feature routable colour mapping, wrist-based heart rate, storage for up to 1000 songs and our Garmin Pay ready contactless payment solution.

Features:



  • Premium multisport GPS smartwatch, with wrist heart rate technology1 and colour TopoActive Europe* maps, featuring Trendline™ popularity routing to help you find and follow the best paths
  • Fit for adventure with rugged design that features stainless steel or diamond-like carbon (DLC) titanium bezel, buttons and rear case
  • Sync with music streaming services such as Spotify® to easily store and play your favourite songs right from your watch
  • Garmin Pay™ ready. The contactless payment solution3 lets you make convenient payments with your watch, so you can leave your cash and cards at home
  • Built-in navigation sensors include three-axis compass, gyroscope and barometric altimeter as well as multisatellite (GPS, GLONASS and Galileo) capability to track in more challenging environments than GPS alone
  • Battery performance:4 up to 12 days in smartwatch mode and 8 hours in GPS mode with music (depending on settings)


Advanced Features:



  • Your roadmap to success - Whether you’re in the city or on the trail, all fēnix 5 Plus Series watches provide built-in mapping and navigation features to help keep you oriented and on course. Full-colour TopoActive Europe mapping comes preloaded with map data optimised for at-a-glance navigation and location tracking. For runners and cyclists, the device also features Trendline popularity routing, which uses millions of kilometres of Garmin Connect™ data to help you to run and cycle like locals — wherever you go.
  • Premium material, robust performance - Built for rugged adventures and crafted of the finest premium-grade materials, fēnix 5 Plus Series watches are available in a variety of finish choices, including PVD-coated stainless steel bezel and DLC titanium bezel versions. A bright, high-resolution, full-colour transflective Garmin Chroma Display™ with LED backlighting assures readability in all ambient conditions even under intense sunlight. For added scratch resistance, a high-strength domed sapphire lens is available on several fēnix 5 Plus Series models.
  • Improved satellite reception - Every fēnix 5 Plus watch features, in addition to the proven GPS and GLONASS compatibility, Galileo satellite reception, to connect even in the most challenging environments. In addition to map-based guidance, each watch also provides advanced ABC (altimeter, barometer and compass) sensors for situational outdoor awareness. 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.
  • 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. 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.
  • ClimbPro ascent management - This special ascent feature provides you with real-time information on current and upcoming climbs of your pre-loaded activity during long trail running activities, mountain bike rides or road rides.
  • 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.
  • The soundtrack for your sport - Got a power song that gets you pumped up for a race or tough workout? Now with fēnix 5 Plus, you can enjoy phone-free listening on the go, with up to 1000 songs stored right on your watch. It's easy to download music and queue up your favourites so you can enjoy them anywhere, anytime through wirelessly connected Bluetooth headphones (sold separately). You can even sync your carefully crafted playlists from select music streaming services5 to your watch for more ad-free listening. So leave your phone behind when you head out for a run or a ride, because the music that keeps you moving is right there on your wrist.
  • Pay with a wave of your hand - To help keep pace with your active lifestyle, fēnix 5 Plus features our Garmin Pay ready 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.
  • Stay smartly connected - All fēnix 5 Plus Series models support smart notifications when paired with a compatible device.6 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, GroupTrack7 and social media sharing through our free Garmin Connect and Garmin Connect Mobile applications.
  • Custom apps, watches faces and bands - You can customise any fēnix 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.
  • 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, this app taps into metrics — such as pace, vertical oscillation, grade and even local wind conditions — to determine the amount of power you’re applying to 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.
  • Menstrual cycle tracking - Get a better understanding of your body using the Garmin Connect™ menstrual cycle tracking feature. Use it to track your cycle, log physical and emotional symptoms and record personal notes. You’ll get education about training and nutrition during each phase of your current cycle, too. With the Connect IQ™ app, you’ll get cycle updates delivered to your wrist — including period reminders, cycle details and symptoms logged for the day.
  • Safety and tracking features - fēnix 5 Plus provides safety and tracking features 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 smartphone8 — 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.

I have this watch, bought not long ago for a hell of a lot more than this. Great price.
How big is the watch ? Sounds silly but does it make you look like flava flav?

This is the middle size one, I have small wrists and I had the 5X and 6X for a while - they were too big. I have the 6 now (which is the same size as this) and it's a great size and the watch looks sleek enough to wear 24/7 which is what I do.

This Titanium model is really nice, it scratches easily but the weight saving is noticeable and it feels 'special' - the Sapphire glass is very tough and hard to scratch. Also that Orange strap looks great.

Not a lot of extra features in the 6 Pro over this, and if you can justify the price for this 5 Plus, then you basically end up with one of the best-looking, most fully-featured fitness smartwatches on the market.

Not much difference vs the 6 Pro?

– Adds Trendline Popularity Routing Visibility (Pro): This allows you to actually see the ‘heatmaps’ on your device
– Adds map display themes: This includes high contrast, popularity, marine, dark, and outdoor.
– Adds new widget glances concept: Basically shrinks widgets to 1/3rd the screen size, so you can see three at once
– Adds new PacePro feature: This replaces old-school paper race pace bands, creating pace targets for race based on grade/reverse splits/etc…
– Adds new Power Manager feature: Gives detailed information about the impacts/tradeoffs of features on battery life
– Adds new Power Modes feature: Allows you to create custom power/battery modes, with time remaining per activity
– Adds new MARQ Expedition ultra-long mode: For multi-week GPS activities. Basically shuts off everything except reduced rate GPS tracking
– Adds ski resort maps: These started on the MARQ series, with 2,000 ski resorts worldwide
– Adds golf maps pre-loaded: Previously you had to manually load these one by one, also, more detailed golf features
– Adds support for wrist-based swimming HR: This was teased recently on the FR945 beta updates
– Adds new ultra-low battery mode: Gets up to 80 days of battery life, but super basic watch functionality only
– Revamped ClimbPro with new coloring: Now matches the Edge 530/830 styling
– Increased data fields per page: Up to 8 fields on the 6X, and up to 6 fields on the 6S/6
– Increased screen size and reduced bezel (varies by model, but up to 36% bigger screen size on the 6X
– Reduced ‘lug to lug distance’ on Fenix 6S: This should help those with smaller wrists, more on this later
– Reduced thickness of all devices. The 6S shrunk by 10%, the 6 by 7%, and the 6X by 15%.
– Changed from MediaTek GPS chipset to Sony GPS Chipset: Like every other new Garmin 2019 device
– Battery life increased
– Added PulseOx (pulse oximeter data): Within Fenix lineup it was previously only on the Fenix 5X Plus variant
– Added Respiration Rate (post-activity, also as a data field): With chest strap only
– Added new Garmin ELEVATE optical HR sensor: This is the V3, same as MARQ/FR245/945 sensor.
– Added training load focus stats: Shows how workouts benefit a given target/focus area
– Added deeper training effect details/metrics: Further details on the impact of a workout
– Added body battery functionality: Kinda like Street Fighter body energy levels
– Added heat acclimation: For any workouts in temps over 71°F/21.6°C
– Added altitude acclimation: For any time or workouts spent above 850m/2,788ft
– Added Incident Detection: If you crash your bike it notifies someone (this was recently added to the Fenix 5 Plus via firmware update)
– Added Safety/Tracking Assistance: You can press button to send help alert to friends/family (this was recently added to the Fenix 5 Plus via firmware update)
– Revamped race predictor to be a bit more strict on predictions (more than just VO2Max lookup charts now)
– VO2Max now compensates for heat: Previously it didn’t
– Training Status now compensates for heat: Previously it didn’t
– Redesigned a bunch of the user interface, especially for post workout stats

I read that review before I bought the 6 series. You’ll notice none of those are killer features and mostly software tweaks.
Help please: I have the sapphire fenix 5... mainly for gym/walking and most importantly... golf. My fenix 5 has to "update" every time I am on a new course... even if I have played it before. Recently one particular course will not upload to my watch even though I have it on my "connect" list. Does this watch already have the courses on it.. or will I still have the same problem.
Cheers for any help with this.
I'm genuinely interested, but I was looking for the vivoactive 4 as I want something for logging my road cycling.

Is this model remarkably better?

Not if you just want something to log your road cycling. In fact you don't even need the vicoactive 4 which is still quite expensive, still being a relatively new model.

I have this model, it does scratch easily, however you can polish them out easily as well.

I’ve just come to live with the scratches and wear on mine - I’ve got some on the edging and the titanium strap collects the most wear, but it’s comfortable. Much more so than a stainless steel strap I find.

Thanks for your reply. I looked at all the models and it seems the vivoactive 4 has some pretty good features above other models. I was looking at that or the fitbit ionic, but I've decided on the former....unless I come across something better.

Which model were you thinking?
