Save $450 on the 5x and $350 on the 5, both in slate grey.
Garmin Fenix 5 is here.
Don't forget Shopback/Cashrewards!
Would love to know if the Fenix 5 is the Sapphire edition.
Although it’s not listed as this, Rebel aren’t renowned for accurate details on their website.
Edit: Looking at DC rainmakers description the Sapphire only comes with the granite blue band so this would not have the sapphire glass.
yeah it isnt - this site should help .. https://buy.garmin.com/en-AU/AU/p/560327/pn/010-01733-02
I bought my F5 for $399 nearly 2 years ago. This is an old watch now. Id be waiting for a 5plus or 6 deal again, they seem to come fairly regularly. That said, it was a solid watch until the battery died on me
my fenix 3 is still going after 4 years.
How is your elevation? mine is terrible now 10000+/-sea level
cheers OP.. ive been holding out for a 6 Pro but this deal is too good to pass up for the 5X Sapphire. it will do the job
Are you sure, it's two generations old
does what i need. im not fussed over payments or music. for me its an outdoors watch and this is still one of the highest regarded ones out there
thanks for the neg.
want. good battery life. maps. ABC nav.
can I get this for $550 any other way? maybe in the $800 range if i get lucky with a good deal on a Fenix 6 pro version.
Does the 5x do these things? yes.
Does it do all that other stuff I don't really care about? no.
I have a Samsung watch that does that stuff should I choose to use it for said stuff. I want a reliable outdoors watch with a good battery life (5S does not meet this criteria , pro or not). has maps, ABC nav. at $550 this is a good deal best I've seen recently anyway. would have loved a 6Pro, but can't hold out anyway, and won't get close to this price for a while.
anyway, there's my justification, appreciate the neg but I know what I bought. simply make your own mind up don't be a drone and assume newer model mean a this is pointless. the Fenix watches are an amazing range for what they do
i would add though, i would avoid the 5. if you are keen, get the 5x at the deal price. the 5 would be very arguable to be a waste as it does not have the maps and a lower battery life than the 5x (and no sapphire screen). in that case, absolutely get the newer model. or a suunto 9 (non baro) which can be had for similar pricing
Avoid, it's a really bad deal.
It's a great watch but as above I got mine years ago for $399. Old technology
Get the 5 plus or 6
The Fenix 6 is $1000, on sale it'll be 30% off at best.
Cant compare the two with that big of a price difference.
This deal is still active on the rebelesport website
Runs till the 30th now I think.
The 5S is also available for the same price at JB now
Had the 5 for a week now. Very comfortable (was a bit worried about that) and great features - exactly what I was after (running and crosstraining tracking with ability to link to power meter on bike too so I can see full Garmin training analytics) and nothing I don't want (music, payment, maps). Awesome!
