Why you should buy the Garmin Fenix 5 Plus multi-sport smartwatch
Why would you buy a Garmin Fenix 5 Plus over – let’s say – an Apple Watch Series 4? The biggest appeal of the former wearable device is the outstanding battery life; even considering moderate exercising, you can easily go at least five days between two charges. The latter can last for a day, if you aren’t using it too much.
On top of this, the Garmin Fenix 5 Plus is also a very tough device, not something you are afraid to use. It was design for explorers, after all. Water rated up to a 100 metres, you can swim in it in both pools and open water. The sapphire glass is truly scratch free and it will most definitely survive a few bumps when you’re tackling a forest path.
The Garmin Fenix 5 Plus is also Garmin Pay ready, which isn’t supported by an awful lot of banks in the UK, but still, should you be a Starling customer, for example, you will be able to pay with the watch in shops and anywhere where contactless payment is accepted (almost everywhere by now).
Garmin’s GPS system is renowned for its precision. It uses three different satellite systems (GPS, GLONASS and GALILEO) to track your movement and the algorithm works really well. It picks the signal up quickly and the accuracy is more than adequate.
