For athletes and outdoor adventurers, the watches of the fēnix 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.

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.

Your roadmap to success

Premium materials, 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 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 5S 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 5S 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, watch faces and bands

Custom apps, watch faces and bands.Y

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.

Choose from millions of tracks

You’ll never get bored with your workout playlist when you can change it up anytime. Fēnix 5s Plus is compatible with some of your favourite streaming services — and more are being added all the time. If you have a premium membership to these compatible services, then every track in their massive library is yours to download for offline listening on your watch. Learn more about the streaming services that are currently available. And check back soon to see who we’re adding next to the list.

Try these top-notch headphones

When you’re taking your tunes on the go, make sure you have the right headphones for the job. Fēnix 5s Plus pairs effortlessly with a wide variety of Bluetooth wireless technology-enabled headphones, and we’ve identified some great options for you, including buds that stay firmly in place during your most intense runs and have long-lasting battery life. Click here to learn more about the headphones that will be the perfect match for your new watch.

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 5S 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.
