Garmin launches the brand-new Garmin Fenix 5 series – For fitness, adventure and style
A momentous evolution from its acclaimed predecessor, Garmin Malaysia today officially launched the Fenix 5 series, comprises five distinct models which are Fenix 5, Fenix 5 Sapphire, Fenix 5S, Fenix 5S Sapphire, and Fenix 5X. The Garmin Fenix 5 series were crafted in varying sizes to fit every wrist and every workout. All of them are designed to be lighter, sleeker, and more compact than the competition.
The new Garmin Fenix 5 series includes Garmin Elevate™ wrist heart rate technology which gives users around the clock heart rate monitoring, without the need of a chest strap. In addition to counting steps and monitoring sleep, the watch uses heart rate to provide calories burned information, and quantify the intensity of the user’s fitness activities.

Measuring 42mm in diameter, Garmin Fenix 5S is catered to female users preferring to don a watch that flatters their petite form. Both stylish and functional, the Garmin Fenix 5S is available in silver with white silicone band with a super solid mineral glass lens. Meanwhile, the Garmin Fenix 5S Sapphire is furnished with a scratch-resistant sapphire lens and is available in black with metal black band.

Pokdepinion: It would have been more awesome if Garmin had used Android Wear 2.0 here, for more functionality that can be added via the Play Store.
