My name is mike and today we’re going to review a garmin fenix 5 plus sapphire yeah that’s a mouthful and it’s going to be brand new and i’ll. Give you my long term review it doesn’t make any sense, but you’ll see, because i got a new package right here, it’s from garmin uh. This actually is a warranty case. I’Ll tell you about it. A bit later, but let’s open up gorman said i get a new one. Um seems like that. One is refurbished, but uh the response on you. So what actually led to this one right up here, there’s the start and stop button, this one didn’t click anymore. Então, basicamente,, as i pressed on just kind of went – and i never knew if i actually pressed the button – so i messaged government about that and they said yeah no problem just send us your old watch back without anything and we have sent you a new one. Eu sou., taking off the straps because uh i do have my old ones: let’s just focus on the garmin. So what can i tell you about my garmin? Bem, i had it on for a maximum of 15 ou 16 hours with gps, galileo, so double gps, bluetooth, hot monitor or chest, strap and yeah bluetooth for my phone on it for 15 ou 16 hours from 100 Isto é. Quite a lot to be honest and i yeah i’m kind of impressed with our training health for like 10 dias, which is quite good not as good as government promise, mas hey.
Por último, mas não menos importante, let’s talk about my sapphire glass. I didn’t get one scratch. Basicamente, what happened once a rock fell down while i was climbing and it directly hit the wall. Nope seems like around around the cover yeah that one was scratched uh i mean it’s, the metal or titanium. If you have the money, but the safari class didn’t have any scratches, and i was completely shocked now that the watch is fully charged. Let’S talk about it first of all, we’re at 60 brightness and, como você pode ver, it’s not really bright or clear, pelo menos. If you compare it to something like this, this is um a samsung galaxy watch active, i don’t know precisely, mas você pode ver. The display, claro, is much clearer much brighter. Contudo, that’s one point due to the sapphire glass single um, this one has a touch, and this one has buttons, claro, it’s a completely different screen, but i can safely crash that one into a rock without getting it broken, and i felt like i could wrench On a bike and by the way it’s my mom, so not my colorway now another point i want to mention uh. If you have this watch and hold it into light, which i can’t show you, because um it’s been raining for literally three weeks and it’s not going to stop soon. So if i hold it into some sunlight, it actually is way brighter. So it’s not only a bit brighter, it actually is brighter than the usual watch because it just gets brighter.
Um really love that one. What else uh you can see? We have an optic heart rate, monitor that well, it is quite good as far as an optic goes uh. I actually don’t bother anymore with this one. I just use my um hot, strap or chest, strap simply because it’s not as accurate, that’s the nature of on skin. Afinal de contas, it’s gone, they have so many activities since this one’s new uh, you can see all of them uh. The mapping is great. O que mais – and they have many more and you can do your own mapping – is great what’s even better is the gps location, comparing that to your normal gps model, your phone or um like garmin edge 520, which i have that one’s way accurate way more accurate. It gives you around maybe 10, almost in the woods, gostar 10 Por cento, more of your trails, so it’s not cutting corners like this. It actually follows kind of the corners, claro, high battery demand, but it’s worth it now. What i recommend one uh, if you have the money and if you really want to train without using your phone um go for it. If you have the money, ir, buy the phoenix 6, of course uh. But i okay evelyn mike’s here so a friend of mine asked me yesterday if he should buy a watch like this, and i actually told him no and i’ll tell you why, because that’s something i forgot to actually mention in the video.
If you do not train to specifically get faster, stronger um or need your gps on your watch, you don’t need to buy a watch. Don’T buy a watch to be honest because that’s just unnecessary. Se você quiser, claro, but there are cheaper options. If you want one that works for many years, and actually my personal opinion looks quite nice, i mean it kind of looks like a normal watch. Then yeah go for it. If you have someone go for it, but if you don’t actually train for one specific type, like maybe mountain biking and just want to ride, if you want to then go buy a gps unit, talvez, but you don’t actually need a watch that checks you all the Time and hot straps and just don’t, you don’t, you don’t, need it just go with fun writing so anyway. I hope you liked this video or it was informative.
