I bought this watch on May 2017 and now (March 2018) it stopped working. I contacted Garmin USA - because I bought it right here on this page - and I was informed by Garmin USA that they cannot do anything about it. My watch should be replaced but Garmin USA cannot do anything because MY WATCH IS REGISTERED IN SOUTHEAST ASIA!!!!! I am trying to contact Garmin Asia, but as I don't speak any Asian languages it is extremely difficult to solve this problem.
I WAS CHEATED BY AMAZON!!!!
2 more runs and a hike and I'm now at 52%. Love the battery life.
My review is solely based on a mountaineer, climber, and hiker’s perspective.
Garmin has hit a home-run with this watch when it comes to hiking, climbing and ski/board mountaineering. I can upload .gpx climbing routes and navigate to and from flawlessly on the 1:24,000 scale $99 topo map upgrade. The 13ers, 14ers, trails are fully visible & accessible on the map. Furthermore, I sold my Garmin GPSMAP62stc handheld. This is truly a replacement to heavy and bulky handhelds with an insane amount of features beyond just mountaineering. The climbing, hiking, snowboarding activities are included and track G-Metrics accurately enough for me. I also own the Garmin Virb Ultra Action Camera and I can initiate pics/vids from my wrist. In addition, I receive low battery warnings in the same way. The battery life isn’t the best when in full GPS track mode, but I can get a full day of tracking with about 1/4 of the battery left. This is not a problem on multiple day climbs using an external battery or solar charger. I’m amazed how fast it charges!
To conclude, this watch is a beast! If you want a GPS/fitness watch on steroids this is it. If you like big screens and more affordable options this is not for you. If you are on the fence about a handheld I recommend this option.
UPDATE 6/2/17 - Charged from 16% to 100% in under 2 hours on a RAVPower 10050mAh Outdoor Portable Charger.
UPDATE 6/3/17 - Half day of mountaineering/splitboarding/climbing/course following. 56% battery level. Not bad!
UPDATE 6/12/17 - Whatever Garmin did with the new update they nerfed my altimeter. It's 192ft off! I calibrated 4 times on my climb. Please see pic. The actual elevation is 13,822ft. This is a new issue...
UPDATE 6/15/17 - The sapphire face is bombproof, but the metal around it scratches way too easy!
UPDATE 8/12/17 - The altimeter is consistently off... DON'T BUY IF YOU WANT ACCURACY!
UPDATE 8/27/17 - Watch connects and disconnects randomly with PC. Read the reviews with the same issue
UPDATE 8/19/18 - Battery Life is now insanely poor running a course and usual functions. Started the day at 98% and ended half-day at 6%. Seriously? The new update has definitely compromised battery life.
Well, my last watch was a pebble steel. This is truly the closest comparison. I've been through several, most recently the fitbit ionic (which I returned after a week).
Here are the priorities:
1. Always On. Sorry apple watch people and ionics, etc... If I've got a kid on one hip and a bag of groceries in the other, I don't want to be doing some weird flex/gyrate to get my hand in the right position to see the time. I want to glance down at my wrist that's already facing me and see the time. You'd think this isn't a big deal, but next time you look at your watch,bring it up level, close your eyes then roll it towards yourself and open your eyes when it's facing you. It's a slight pause but that's what you get with a watch that isn't LCD. Sure, it's pretty when it's on, but seriously? I want the time or the text, period.
2. Sunlight. The Fenix/Pebble use a color LCD screen. In the sun it's even more bright and crisp. At night, it's dark, but it has a back light, just like the apple watch or fitbit ionic does, where you have to roll it towards yourself, or pick it up just right (except it's much more adjustable). Like most people, however, I don't hang out in the dark all day. When I'm out and about, I want to see the time/texts
3. Readability. The Fenix/Pebble let you read the entire text or email. I don't know why, but the ionic didn't let me see anything but the date, part of the subject and who it was from. The fenix lets you see that and then read the rest if you want. (like the pebble).
4. Connectability. The Fenix/Pebble both maintain a solid connection. With the ionic, I had terrible trouble keeping it connected. I had several others that were even worse, but cost less than $100, so I can't compare.
5. Interface. The Fenix/Pebble are button nav. This is a 2 way street, but think carefully about your life here. I happen to swim, meaning my hands are wet and that isn't good for touch screens. I go to cold places where I have gloves on, and that isn't good for touch screens. It took some getting used to, but after a week or so, I could navigate around the Fenix even faster than the pebble. It's very snappy and you can reach various items from more than one direction. Pretty cool.
The Fenix has a bunch of cool gadgets that I'll never use, but it's cool to have them. If you bike or hike or do things where you need to track your GPS location and altitude and heartbeat.... the Fenix does it all. For me.... meh.
Oh.... and just a note again about the #1 issue of "always on". Look at the pics I have posted. It's me at work with my hand on a keyboard. If I'm coding away like the geek I am, and I get an email, I want to glace at my wrist and see if that's something I can ignore and just move on without even stopping typing. If you're a coder, you know exactly how debilitating it is to take your hands off your keyboard to check something or even switch over from whatever app you're coding in to your email..... even if it's just a few keystrokes.... you lose your flow.

Al igual que muchos de los que comentan sobre la escasa duración de la batería, en mi caso, el reloj (Fenix 5) también venía descargado completamente.
Tras cargarlo por primera vez, comprobe que se descargaba a un ritmo de 1 %/h (4,2 días de autonomía). Mi reloj traía instalada la versión de firmware 8.00.
Tras actualizarlo a la versión 12.40 mediante Garmin Connect Mobile, la batería se descarga a un ritmo de 0,3 %/h (13,9 días de autonomía), por lo que el problema de la batería es principalmente por la versión de firmware instalado.
Para saber qué versión de firmware tienes instalado, solo tienes que hacer:
1) Pulsar Up/Menú
2) Pulsar Down hasta opción "Configuración"
3) Seleccionar (botón rojo).
4) Pulsar Down hasta opción "Acerca de"
5) Seleccionar (botón rojo).
6) Comprobar la versión de software instalado, y si es anterior a 12.40 actualizar mediante la app Garmin Connect.
Antes de devolver el reloj, que por otro lado es una pasada, comprobad qué versión de firmware tenéis instalado, y actualizadlo a la última versión (12.40 a fecha de 14/02/2019).
Si tras actualizar el firmware comprobáis que el ratio de descarga (en modo reloj con medición de FC en muñeca y bluetooth desconectado) es inferior a 1% cada 3 horas, no hay problema ni con el reloj ni con el firmware. Haced la prueba varias veces (por la noche es buena referencia 3 % / 9 h).
Si funciona bien, haced un backup del firmware en el ordenador, por si con una futura actualización vuelve a ir mal, para poder hacer downgrade.
Si funciona mal, antes de devolverlo, tratad de conseguir el firmware 12.40 a través del servicio técnico, que esta versión funciona bien, y si aun así se descarga rápido, pues pensad en devolverlo.
Pero estoy convencido de que la mayor parte de las personas que tienen problemas con la batería lo solucionarían actualizando el firmware del reloj.
For my purposes - daily activity tracking, cycling and walking - the sensor suite is fine and consistent meaning I get good insight into changes in my health / performance, which was what I was after.
For the 90% of my life that I'm not cycling/walking/otherwise exercising, this watch is absolutely *superb*. The watch face is large, clear and easy to read (because it's always-on), the gesture for backlight is (mostly) OK, the "smartwatch" features do a great basic job (All I really wanted was notifications on my wrist, and I get those just fine. Calendar, weather, music control etc I view as bonuses). And we must not forget the absolutely fantastic battery life: In "Smartwatch" mode I've had it last well over the advertised 2 weeks (bearing in mind I'm still getting step, heart-rate and sleep tracking in this mode).
It's a pricey piece of kit, but it looks good on your wrist and it'll track just about any activity you can think of while performing as a useful adjunct to your phone. And you don't even need to take it off when you shower.
Ho deciso di passare a questo Garmin per svariati motivi.
Con il Gear S2 potevo leggere e rispondere alle notifiche (messaggi e whatsapp), ma alla fine era troppo scomodo scrivere un messaggio su quel display e avrò usato quella funzione 10 volte in 2 anni.
Questo Fenix 5 ti fa leggere le notifiche, ma non c'è la possibilità di interagire.
La batteria pare eterna, ce l'ho da 2 giorni, collegato al telefono, mi ci sono allenato 2 volte, l'ho usato tutto il giorno ieri per capirne le funzionalità e la batteria è all'89%.
Molto comodo al polso, non pesa eccessivamente, molto elegante in tutte le situazioni. Sembra davvero molto robusto, anche il cinturino sembra davvero di ottima fattura.
Ha centinaia di opzioni sportive, ci si perde nel menù da quante opzioni e sottomenu ci sono ma è tutto abbastanza intuitivo.
Si collega alla sua app dedicata in pochi secondi e non perde un colpo.
Ti da indicazioni durante, e dopo l'attività (tempi di recupero, battito cardiaco, ecc)
Molto utile la funzione del controllo del sonno. Il gps si aggancia subito e non si perde mai.
Utilissima funzione per ritrovare un punto di partenza (se impostato prima)
Insomma, secondo me questo è un vero smartwatch per una persona sportiva, che fa movimento e che non necessariamente sia legata ad un solo sport.
La batteria praticamente infinita mi ha fatto decidere per l'acquisto, mi ero stancato di dover ricaricare ogni notte anche l'orologio.
Con questo, anche se vado via per una settimana, non sono obbligato a portare cavi di ricarica (anche se il cavetto è davvero piccolo)
Già provato anche con camicia e giacca, fa una bella figura (il mio è tutto nero)
Il display è leggibile in tutte le situazioni, ma c'è l'opzione per farlo illuminare al gesto del braccio e addirittura decidere quando farlo attivare (dopo il tramonto)
In meinem Fall hätte ich gern Komoot verwendet, welches bei meiner Samsung Gear S3 ausgezeichnet funktionierte. Nur erlaubt Garmin leider nicht, dass Karten per Bluetooth-Verbindung auf die Fenix 5 übertragen werden. Ich empfinde dies als unzulässige Einschränkung und würde mir daher kein weiteres Garmin-Produkt mehr kaufen. Dann verzichte ich lieber auf ein paar Leistungsdaten, deren Validität ohnehin kaum zu überprüfen ist, und kehre wieder mal zu einer Samsung Galaxy Watch zurück. Die zeichnet zumindest auch Nickerchen am Nachmittag auf und nicht nur Schlaf innerhalb eines vordefinierten Zeitfensters, wie bei der Fenix 5.
One thing though, the bezel marks super easy which can spoil the look ofthe watch, I bought a soft silicon case and a glass protector for the watch all of which works fine and keeps the watch scratch free, but hey it is a watch to be used in activities, so "battle damage" is going to be pretty much a given.
All in all if you are looking for a great piece of wearable tech this is one to consider, I would but again no question.
