Garmin fenix 5 Software Improvements

The Garmin fenix 5 is very close to releasing.

Before you get your hands on the most anticipated piece of fitness tech for 2017, we have a summary of the software improvements provided in the next generation watch.

Firstly, the user interface is improved due to the hardware update of the screen. Garmin is fully utilising the 64 colour screen with 240 x 240 pixels (previously 16 colours & 218 x 218 pixels). Alongside the improved User Interface is the quick access controls. This a new design for a simpler look and feel. Even emojis are now supported :)

UltraTrac is an ultra amazing software improvement. UltraTrac enables up to 75 hours GPS on time with plans to increase the range to 100 hours. This feature sets the fenix 5 to be one the fiercest watches for those requiring such a demand.

Additional training data can be accessed in the new software which includes training status and training loads. This data is acquired by analysing previous trends indicating whether workouts are paying off.

Lastly and the most significant software improvement for the Garmin fenix 5x is maps. A long awaited feature that has been other smartwatches and even the Garmin Epix.

Maps on the fenix 5x allows for a full navigation experience just like a normal GPS unit. With turn by turn navigation (including street names), POI of interest, elevation data and much more, this is perfect for any avid traveller, city worker or city resident.

To get your hands on the next generation fenix watch, be sure to place a pre-order immediately. Stock will be limited for a couple months due to initial demand.
