The Garmin fenix 5, has many hardware improvements set to impress customers worldwide.
The Garmin fenix 5 now comes in three sizes. However, the most significant hardware update is the slimmer H.R profile compared to its predecessor. The optical H.R profile is close to being a smooth surface, though it has a protruding element measured at .3mm. This will undoubtedly make the watch far more comfortable.
The new screen is a welcome addition. With a larger display sized at 240 x 240 pixels on the fenix 5 and fenix 5X alongside 64 colours, compared to 16 colours previously.
Another significant update is the new gyroscope sensor enabling for 75 hours GPS on time with a target of 100 hours through Garmin’s UltraTrac mode.
Although not a new sensor Garmin has added the ability for a many ANT + and bluetooth sensors to be connected. Examples of this included:
- ANT + lighting sensors
- ANT + radar sensors
- ANT + muscle oxygen sensors
- ANT + gear shifter sensors
- Bluetooth straps
One of the best and long-awaited hardware updates, is the quick and seamless way to change the look and feel of the watch. The Garmin QuickFit system allows a change to occur in seconds.
