The fēnix 5S is perfect for passionate athletes and adventurers who value performance and compact design.
This premium multi-sport watch doesn’t set any limitations on performance and presents itself in a lighter, more elegant and more compact design. The advanced features help you make progress in your training: Heart rate measurement at the wrist, integrated activity profiles, basic navigation functions and performance data that allow you to better measure the effectiveness and progress of your workout. This GPS multisport smart watch looks great everywhere - in the office as well as on adventures - and keeps pace with your active lifestyle.
Dazzling design, convincing performance
Different target groups need different designs. For this reason, the fēnix 5S with a watch diameter of 42 mm has been optimised for athletes with a narrower wrist. Compact design - great performance. The extended training functions are also integrated as standard in the fēnix 5S. The design of the fēnix 5S is chic and sporty. An EXO stainless steel antenna is integrated into the bezel and the back is made of welded steel so that the watch can withstand anything, even when the going gets hard (water resistance of 10 ATM; corresponds to the test pressure in 100 m water depth). The fēnix 5S is in no way inferior to your aesthetic and athletic ambitions.
Excellent readability in any situation
The coloured, high-resolution Garmin Chroma display remains permanently on and is always easy to read. The fēnix 5S uses transflective technology that simultaneously reflects and transmits light, making the display easy to read even in strong sunlight. Garmin’s stylish fēnix 5S Sapphire Edition offers more than good looks - it’s super durable and packed with features too. So the training watch is equipped with high-quality, scratch-resistant sapphire glass.
Heart rate measurement via the wrist
Garmin’s wrist based Elevate HR technology is integrated as standard in all fēnix 5 models. You can now do without the heart rate chest strap. Thanks to the new, fully integrated Elevate sensor on the wrist, you always have the intensity of your workout under control. When you record your daily activities, your heart rate is included in the data to provide more accurate information about the calories burned throughout the day.
The next step in your running training
Your running data will now take you even further. Garmin training features support advanced physiological values and advanced running efficiency data to help you improve your running style and overall performance. These values include performance status (where your actual status is compared with your average fitness level) and stride frequency and stride length data. Turn every training session into a personal competition. Compete against others in Strava Live segments, receive alerts for the start and end of segments, view the leaderboard, and see how your current activity compares to your personal record. Couple the device with a compatible heart rate chest strap such as the HRM-Run to take advantage of more fēnix 5S values. It uses this data to calculate the training load value (based on heart rate variability, vertical movement and vertical ratio), or the ground contact time and ground contact time balance so you can improve the efficiency of your running style.
Up and down
Some functions of the fēnix 5S are used especially in the field. The auto-mount/descent change ensures that the correct values are always recorded. On flat terrain, your pace and distance are highlighted, whilst on mountain trails the system automatically switches to total values for ascent and vertical speed. For ultra long-distance runners there is a special mode which can be used to extend tracking. Store up to 35 hours in the new gyroscope-supported UltraTrac mode.
A true multisport talent
The fēnix 5S is the perfect companion for multisporters. Choose one of the special activity profiles for swimming, running, cycling or create your own multisport profile that is tailored to your training and competitions. The change from one activity to the next is easily done at the push of a button, so that all intermediate training times are recorded.
The watch for all your activities
In addition to the functions for runners, the fēnix 5 watches also support special functions for cycling, swimming, skiing, golfing and paddling, including stand-up paddling and rowing. When cycling, the fēnix 5S stores the speed and distance as well as all Cycling Dynamics when coupled with a power meter. Swimmers receive data on distance, number of moves and more. The Ski/Snowboard mode provides data on speed, distance and altitude difference and also counts the number of descents you make. In paddle sports, the number of strokes, the stroke rate and even the distance per stroke are recorded. In Golf Mode, you get information about the distance to the front, rear, and centre of the green for golf courses downloaded from Garmin Connect. Additional functions are statistics storage (fairway hits etc.)The green view, the AutoShot detection and the auto measuring of distances
On the road on your own paths
On the road and in the terrain you’ll find your way with the fēnix 5S models. The devices combine GPS/GLONASS satellite reception with advanced sensors and well-known Garmin navigation functions such as TracBack. To ensure that the data provided is as accurate as possible, the device's sensors are automatically calibrated via GPS. The integrated altimeter provides altitude data to accurately monitor ascent and descent, and the thermometer and barometer can be used to predict weather changes by displaying short-term trends in air pressure. The electronic 3-axis compass doesn’t lose the bearing - whether in motion or when stationary.
All fēnix 5 Series models can receive Smart Notifications when paired with a compatible device. E-mails, SMS messages and alarms are received directly on the watch. GroupTrack is another new feature of fēnix 5S. You can do this by pairing your device via Garmin Connect and keeping an eye on your friends - and they can keep an eye on you - if you get disconnected during an activity. Automatic uploads to Garmin Connect, LiveTrack, and social media sharing with the free Garmin Connect Mobile apps are additional online features. All fēnix 5 Saphir models offer wi-fi so the watch can connect to your wi-fi network and automatically upload activities for sharing via Garmin Connect.
