At CES 2017 this week, Garmin revealed some new smartwatches that have been designed for the outdoor adventurer.
Joining their new fenix5 line is three new small form-factor smartwatch additions, the 5, the 5X, and the 5S.
All have been designed to be worn continually with batteries that are said to last between eight days and two weeks on a single charge in smartwatch mode, or between 13 and 24 hours if you run the GPS radio continuously. They also feature a lighter and smaller design than previous smartwatches.
The 5 is sized at 47mm, the 5S is smaller at 42mm and the 5x is the largest at 51mm.
All of them are water resistant up to 100 meters and feature the same activity tracking features as the rest of Garmin’s tech along with Garmin’s Connect IQ app.
Both the 5 and the 5S are pretty much the same, aside from their size, however, the 5X also comes with additional mapping features and comes preloaded with TOPO US mapping, allowing it to suggest routes based on how long the user wants to run or ride.
The 5X also comes with a scratch-resistant sapphire lens as a standard option.
All three watches will be available later this quarter. The 5 and regular 5S will retail for $600, while the 5 sapphire, 5S sapphire and 5x will set you back $700.
