GARMIN has announced three new additions to the Fenix 5 fitness tracker/smartwatch series. All arriving with Plus in their name, the Fenix 5 Plus; Fenix 5S Plus and Fenix 5X Plus are all successor models to the trio that launched in 2017.

The Fenix 5S Plus is the smallest of the three devices sporting the same 42mm case as the original 5S. This time around, Garmin made the 5S Plus’ display almost 20 percent larger but kept the same case size. Finally, the Fenix 5X Plus still has the big 51mm case size as the original.
Because all the case sizes are the same, the QuickFit bands Garmin introduced last year will work with this new lineup of devices.
- Garmin Pay: All three watches have support for Garmin Pay, the company’s contactless payment system.
- On-device music storage: All three watches offer on-device music storage for up to 500 songs. You can load up your own downloaded music, or choose playlists from streaming services like iHeartRadio or Deezer.
- Galileo support: All three watches now come with support for Galileo that should help users track in more challenging environments, such as deep canyons or urban environments.
- Pulse oximeter: Only on the Fenix 5X Plus, the built-in pulse oximeter will assess your blood oxygen levels. This should help users better understand how their blood oxygen saturation is affected by different types of workouts.
- Full-color maps: Full-color topographical maps are pre-loaded on all three watches. Previously, only the Fenix 5X had this feature. Now, you’ll be able to use these maps for location tracking, search for new courses, and more. This also means all three watches come with Garmin’s Trendline feature, which helps users understand the popularity of a particular route. For instance, Trendline will let you know if you’re about to go down a well-traveled trail, or one that’s never been explored by other users.
