Multisport smartwatch with optical heart rate sensor

from BikeRadar
Garmin's fenix 5 is a fantastic watch for the outdoorsy person. It’s data heavy and offers arguably the widest range of data fields on the market. It’s accurate, it’s tough and it looks great! I am partial to the look of a big watch, but the majority of people aren’t, so the fenix 5's smaller size is likely to please. The screen is sharp in all light conditions and the range of built in sensors is fantastic.. Full review
The Wired Runner

A functional and stylish watch

from The Wired Runner
With its mix of performance and style, the fenix 5 series is Garmin’s most comprehensive GPS watch. It’s got wrist-based heart rate, tons of features, and a great battery life. The 5X version has great mapping and turn-by-turn directions. But it’s big, heavy, and expensive. The other models are smaller and better for thin wrists. All of the fenix 5s come with a ton of strap and color options... Full review

A full-featured GPS watch with good battery life for every day use

from OutdoorGearLab
Garmin hits the ball out of the park with the Fenix 5. It is fully featured, with excellent battery life. Really sweetening the deal is that one can choose one of three different sizes, compromising only on battery life for the smaller versions... Full review

Measures everything really well, superb battery life

from Good Gear Guide
This watch is one of the very best smartwatches and fitness trackers on the market. It’s designed to be worn for many days at a time and not just at the gym and when exercising. At $799 it’s not cheap and so, if you’re in the market for something like this, we recommend spending a bit more and getting the Garmin Fenix 5S instead because if watches mean anything at all to you, this one looks awful...

A super-powerful sports tracker with a side of smartwatch

from Stuff
Garmin’s Fenix 5, then, is the undeniable champion of multi-sport trackers. Not least because it can track almost every discipline that’s out there. It also manages to be tough without looking ungainly, and carries a real sense of premium build quality that’s not undermined by a shoddy interface. Those physical buttons actually add to the experience, especially during exercise, while strong Bluetooth and battery performance polish things into a complete tracking package that's also comfortable on smartwatch duty...

Does a superior job

from Forbes
If you’ve never used a Garmin GPS watch, there’s a lot of data to parse. Add in the smartwatch capabilities and fitness tracker-style data of the fēnix 5, and you can get quickly overwhelmed. Luckily, you can do a lot of the arranging of screens and setting of daily goals from the Garmin Connect app... Full review

The best GPS running watch available

from Android Authority
Garmin's fenix 5 is packed with features, sensors, and will track just about every activity under the sun. With its stellar activity and GPS tracking, two-week battery life, 10 ATM water resistance, and slimmed down design, we can honestly say this is the best GPS running watch out there. If you can get over the high price point, we think you'll be very happy with what the fenix 5 has to offer... Full review
Tom's Guide

The best outdoor GPS watch

from Tom's Guide
The Garmin fenix 5 is not a cheap GPS watch, but for outdoor adventurers who need or want to capture everything they do, this $599 device could be worth the investment. It provides detailed stats on a multitude of activities, has an accurate heart rate monitor, doesn't weigh your wrist down too much and lasts a long time on a charge... Full review

Aims at athletes, not Apple Watch fans

from Apple Insider
The Fenix 5 is a natural option for hikers, triatheletes, or just athletes in general. It's indestructible, and bound to last as long as they could possibly demand. Even some fitness fanatics may have to wonder if they need something so extreme, however. Garmin itself sells devices which do many of the same things for less, not to mention alternatives from other "serious" fitness device makers like Polar. As we suggested, it may not make sense to get a Fenix unless cardio is a high priority... Full review

Smart sports watches don't come better than this

from Pocket-lint
If money is no object and you have no issue dropping £500 upward on a great, modern, connected sports watch, then the Fenix 5 will surely leave you satisfied. It's got enough smartphone connected-ness about it without hogging your attention, but really excels when it comes to sports tracking - of any kind you care to throw its way... Full review
