The design of Garmin Fenix 5 basically continues the hard style of Fenix 3 and is majority welcomed by male users.
Garmin Fenix 5 Smartwatch Black 21
While most sports watches are tilted in the lightweight direction, Garmin is still tired of using stainless steel on the Fenix series, and the hard wind of the Fenix 5 comes from the screw and curved design of the dial as well as the stainless steel case. So this is why the Fenix series is unique today, and why many people are willing to wear the Fenix series on different occasions.
However, Garmin's persistence is not all advantages, in terms of weight and thickness control, the Fenix series has always been difficult to compare with the Forerunner series. The Fenix 5 of the dial 47mm weighs the same as the Fenix 3 of the old 52mm, both of which weigh 87 grams. The thickness has not changed much because of the built-in photoelectric heart rate sensor.
Compared with the previous generation of Fenix 3, Fenix 5's adjustments to some of the details have made it feel a lot better, such as the brand-new quick-release strap, which really takes only a second to change. You can choose the standard sports silicone strap, or you can choose a more commercial steel strap. For some cyclists or iron riders, this quick disassembly design can be used more easily while riding.
Since there is promotion, there is naturally a way to stay where you are. The five-button layout of Fenix 5 continues the previous design, but the key range is slightly longer, and there are some obvious frustrations. This unclear keystroke feedback does not improve the overall feel of the Fenix 5.
On the contrary, however, this can reduce the possibility of keystroke mistouching to some extent.
As a fully functional outdoor watch, the Garmin Fenix 5 is equipped with a dazzling array of features. Compared with the top matching Fenix 5X, in addition to the no built-in map, the functional design of the secondary top matching Fenix 5 is also unambiguous. Daily functions, intelligent functions, sports functions, outdoor functions, you need it to have, you can not expect it to have it.
If you are an old user of Garmin, you will not be familiar with the split screen design of Fenix 5, and you can even do seamless operation. Even if you are in contact with Garmin Fenix 5 for the first time, you can quickly master the operation style of Fenix 5 according to some on-screen tips after the first boot.
The time interface of the first screen swappable dial allows Fenix 5 to travel between sports and business, with highly customized content, including font, weight, color, and display content, making Fenix 5 more playable.
So to some extent, Fenix 5 is still a plaything for young people, and for older users in the target group, these customized content is still a little irrelevant.
Garmin has a very simple design logic for split-screen designs other than the first screen. On Fenix 5, all the upper and lower longitudinal arrangements that require the first level of display are used by the Garmin. Horizontal arrangement is not easy to use unless setting options are involved.
The benefits are obvious, too, and you can find the split screen you need by turning the page up and down like a fool.
Another logic on Fenix 5 is that the most commonly used features, daily and intelligent, are up and down with the time page on the first screen, which can be quickly reached by using the up and down keys. On the other hand, the sports mode has an exclusive button-the right confirmation button, which is also a design that Garmin has always retained on its models.
The only difference is that Garmin has added a shortcut window to Fenix 5, which can be accessed by pressing the upper / backlight key on the left. A circular dial once reminded me of the Gear S2 smartwatch launched by Sumsang in its early years, and the interaction mode was more or less the same.
What is unknown is that the former Gear S2 is selected by rotating the dial, while the latter Fenix 5 is selected by pressing the keys up and down. Although the implementation process is "low-end" some, but the actual effect is not bad. This shortcut window contains eight hotkeys: synchronize / do not disturb mode / lock screen / connect mobile phone / save location / find mobile phone / music control / shutdown.
The running interface of Fenix 5 displays four data pages by default, which support complete customization, including page layout, data, and so on. In addition to these four pages, you can also add multiple data pages. Among these additional data pages, Garmin has four configured items for you, including personal custom data, running dynamics data, compass, navigation, and music control.
I don't think most people will. But we can't deny the performance of Fenix 5 on this basis, it's still good enough. For some well-budgeted entry-level runners as well as cross-country runners, Fenix 5 is still attractive and can still deliver a great running experience.
- For existing Fenix 3 or other sports watch users who support cross-country running, the purchase recommendation of Fenix 5 is not recommended.
- For beginners who have not used the Fenix series watches and are mainly road runners, the purchase recommendation of Fenix 5 is: appropriate recommendation.
- For those who have not used the Fenix series watches and are mainly road running, cross-country and high-level runners, the purchase recommendation of Fenix 5 is as follows: recommended.
