Striking Design, Strong Performance

Beat yesterday all day, every day. Fenix 5 PLUS Sapphire is the premium multisport GPS watch with wrist-based heart rate, advanced fitness features and interchangeable bands that let you go from workplace to workout without breaking stride. Whatever sport you want to track, Fenix 5 has it covered, thanks to built-in activity profiles and performance metrics plus smart notifications.

Advanced Fitness Metrics

  • Fenix 5 PLUS Sapphire is packed with training features to tell you about your form and fitness. The first is the VO2 max estimator. When used with a heart rate monitor, Fenix 5 PLUS Sapphire crunches data, including your running speed, beats per minute and heart rate variability to estimate the maximum volume of oxygen you can consume per minute. Track changes to your VO2 max to see your fitness gains and to compare with your peers. Other fitness metrics include recovery advisor with a recovery timer and recovery check, plus a Race Predictor, which estimates your ideal finish time based on your current VO2 max number.
  • Fenix 5 PLUS Sapphire incorporates sophisticated Garmin running watch feedback on your running form by reporting multiple metrics. When used with the HRM-Run monitor, Fenix 5 PLUS Sapphire reports your cadence, vertical oscillation and ground contact time. These metrics are called running dynamics, and they affect your running economy.
  • The Fenix 5 PLUS Sapphire isn’t just for running; special feature sets help swim training and skiing too. Borrowing from the Garmin Swim, Fenix 5 PLUS Sapphire tracks your distance, pace, stroke count and more. You just tell Fenix 5 PLUS Sapphire the size of the pool you’re swimming in and begin your workout. Ski/Board mode puts speed, distance, vertical drop and an automatic run counter (with Auto Pause for the lift line) and more at your fingertips. You can even use your Fenix 5 PLUS Sapphire as a glove-friendly remote, via ANT+, for the VIRB and VIRB Elite action cameras.

Custom Apps and Watch Faces

Personalize Fenix 5 PLUS Sapphire with free downloads from Garmin’s Connect IQ store. You can customize your watch face, add data fields and get apps and widgets that provide information at a glance.

You can also download the free Garmin Face-It watch face app to customize your Fenix with any photo from your smartphone. Just download the app, choose an image from your photo library, adjust the style for time and set it as your watch’s face. Whether it’s a scenic view from your last hike or a picture of your new puppy, with Garmin you can add personality to your watch that’s uniquely you.

Stay Connected

Smart Notifications lets you receive emails, texts and alerts right on your watch, even if you’re on the trail. Fenix 5 PLUS Sapphire receives the wireless signal from a compatible iPhone 4s (or newer) or Android smartphone and lets you know you have a message, displaying the text on its own screen whenever you’re ready to read it.
