Garmin fēnix® 5 debuts in Singapore
Singapore, March 10, 2017 — Garmin Singapore today announced new additions to its top-of-the-line fēnix series with the launch of the new fēnix® 5 line in three sizes – the first time Garmin is creating multiple sizes of a single product to reach more users with varying wrist sizes.
- fēnix 5S – Smallest of the series, designed for petite wrists (42mm)
- fēnix 5 – Standard-sized and longest battery life of the series (47mm)
- fēnix 5X – Largest of the series, preloaded with maps and golf courses (51mm)
Multisport features for all fēnix 5 models
The fēnix 5 models come preloaded with full multisport features including running, hiking, swimming and biking. With built-in wrist heart rate technology Garmin Elevate, users get 24/7 heart rate monitoring whether resting or at the gym and without the hassle of a chest strap. In addition to the wide variety of sport profiles, the fēnix 5 models have daily activity tracking, so users can wear their fēnix as a daily timepiece and a rugged training tool. The Sapphire editions also offer a scratch-resistant lens for outdoor challenges.
Built-in navigation features include a 3-axis compass, gyroscope and barometric altimeter, as well as GPS and GLONASS support to track in more challenging environments than with GPS alone. Users can also keep their training stats right at their fingertips with a performance widget that shows training status, training load and more.
Each of the new fēnix 5 models is water rated to 100 meters3, and are built to withstand the elements with a stainless steel bezel, buttons and rear case. Users can also take advantage of the UltraTrac™ power saver mode to extend battery life even more.
Smart notifications and customization
In addition to the multiport features, the fēnix 5S, 5 and 5X boast a variety of connected features. When paired with a compatible smartphone, users can get calls, text and app notifications right on their wrist. All fēnix 5 models are compatible with Garmin’s Connect IQ Store so users can customize their watch with apps, widgets, data fields and watch faces. To take watch faces one step further, fēnix 5 watches are compatible with the Face-It app, so users can set their favorite photo as their watch face. Sapphire models are Wi-Fi® Enabled, so users can connect their watch to their home network for automatic uploads to Garmin Connect™ when within range.
