Garmin Fenix 5 Plus Review 2019 (3 BEST/WORST FEATURES). In this video, Jeff covers the Garmin fenix 5x plus review and Garmin fenix 5s plus review. Overall he likes that these Garmin fitness watches are available in three different sizes and that they have a durable, sleek design. These watches also support a number of activities, including running, swimming, cycling and more. These Garmin multisport watches also have music storage and built-in maps. On the downside, these sport watches are expensive and some users will find them large and heavy. Some people may also experience some Bluetooth connection issues with certain headphones. Still, don’t be surprised if these Garmin watches land on the list for Best GPS Watch 2019 or Best GPS Multisport Watch 2019. Thanks for watching.

Jeff, When do you get to review the versa 2?
Garmin vs Tag vs Movado
I have just bought the 5X plus 51mm face. This came about by one of the things you discussed. This being the size of the strap as standard. My wrist is 210mm so most of these sort of watches won't fit me but this one is great. Still getting the hang of it but it does not have my sport on it which is squash, or racket ball which is more your side of the pond. Great vid thanks
You said you only found one good metal band, which brand was it that?
Horrible watch. There are much better options for lesser price in market.
Thanks for the tips Riz !
Are there any known issues with connecting to the Plantronics BackBeat Fit ?
Anyone know how the fenix 5 performs with the new Beats Powerbeats Pro ear buds??????
Good to know about the watch, I was wondering if u can do a review on casio prw 50,
Hello! My Fenix 5 Plus is not sync-ing with Connect IQ properly. Apps that I download are not pushed to the device, I keep getting Connection Error when it attempts to push the app to the device. The devices are paired. How can I contact garmin support about this problem?
They say if you shave your beard the bluetooth will work. jk
This guy misses you can use Spotify!! And download the playlists..pretty newb
Will it work well with bose soundsport wireless, as I also wear my watch on my left wrist ?
whats the best one in your opinion? the fenix 5 oder the fenix 5 plus?
I really enjoy your videos and I follow u since the Fenix 3 come up, u forget about the payments that only plus can do, I've just ordered a Fenix 5x and cancel two stops from my home because I didn't realize that the 5x don't have contact less payments, should u put on this video lol!!! I almost screw this up because I'd love pay things with my phone and I think I'll appreciate pay with my watch if I'm not with my phone ?
Sorry if I've missed this but which Bluetooth ear buds would you recommend for the Fenix 5 plus?
Please do a video on garmin tactix charlie!
How about a link to the metal band? I bought one off Amazon but the black coating started to wear off within two weeks, totally useless. I'll pay more for one that holds up better, but the Garmin one is so damn expensive.
I like the look of this watch! Musculin look.
Does it replace a full blown gps? Wtf r people using this for running? Literally hundreds of watches that do the functions that u would use for running that r half the price and aren’t loaded down with functions. It’s a GPS watch for fucks sake. That’s the point. Music? Really?
Why does everyone keep complaining about the fenix 5x plus screen size when it is exactly the same a the fenix 3hr
Love the Warp Stabilizer that some how ended up in your export. LOL
Considering it has mapping functionality… would it also work with geocaching?
Looks like the only difference is the music and garmin pay between 5 and 5 plus. Doesn’t seem worth the price increase. Anybody have other thoughts? Looking to buy one of theze
Never tried this watch out but great review
what's the lowest the price has ever gone to? I saw 599usd on Amazon for 5x plus
and then the next day it was gone. ( missed out on Father's day event) ( now wanna be prepared for the next, before hand)
Will pulse ox be available for download some how?
Very helpful – thank u! Love my Garmin 5s+ but poor BT connection w Bose & Jaybird X4 wireless buds has been SOOOO frustrating when running outdoors. ? Will give Anker soundbuds a try.
Awesome review. Thanks man!
I really hate the charger why not type c
Fabulous review Riz, as always!
Quick question before I consider upgrading my Fenix 5 to a 5X: is the display quality (number of pixels, contrast, etc) identical to that of the 5?
Thx again! f.
Got rid of my Apple Watch series 4 to buy a garmin tactix bravo. I love it so far.
did they ever fix the bluetooth connection with these? Left hand watch with Jabra 65T? Good or no?
Does this upload workouts wirelessly or do I need a pc/laptop?
Dude FYI, the Jaybird is meant to be worn in the opposite way if you wear it behind the ear. So in your case, you the Bluetooth receiver should be behind your left ear instead of your right
Is it reliant on a phone?
hi! great review! can you tell me where to find the commercial metalband for the fenix 5 plus? thank you!
I'll stick with my Fenix 3 HR. Love the thing to death. I actually highly recommend it now that it is miles cheaper than when I bought it. Just because it is older doesn't make it a bad device at all. Best watch i've ever owned.
Great video! Can you do video of the Fenix 5 plus vs. 5x? And price did go down, it is know 510 dollars
How about sleep tracking?
Last week, I upgraded from a Fenix 3 HR to the Fenix 5 Plus. The screen is noticeably improved, and there are more workout metrics. I started a generic strength workout, and somehow the watch knew I was doing squats and deadlifts, which is impressive bordering on freaky. Regarding the price… Prior to jumping into the Garmin Fenix world, I'd worn Breitlings for about 10 years, so $700 is a bargain in comparison.
Just a quick tip, doesn't matter if you wear your watch on left or right hand… bt connection should be guaranteed 10-15 m and you are in open space… There is a software problem…
