Garmin Fenix 5 plus is another top-rated premium golf GPS watch from Garmin that we added in our top 10 golf watches list. The previous series of this GPS watch Fenix 5 got a huge recommendation from its users, and we found this watch rating 4.1/5 based on 1.1k customer reviews on Amazon. And it’s more than a golf GPS watch, it’s a multi-sports GPS watch with advanced wrist optical heart rate monitor technology and also perfect for other sports activities such as running, skiing, swimming as well. In this watch, Garmin not only pays attention to jamming the watch with technology but also made several versions (Fenix 5/5S/5X Plus) in different sizes. So, you can choose your one according to your own style and needs.

However, Garmin refreshed the Fenix series last year and launch Fenix 5 plus series that takes the place of existing Fenix 5/5S/5X. All three watch of plus series loaded with many new features such as onboard color mapping, contactless payment (Garmin pay), onboard music etc. Also, Fenix plus series new Galileo GPS support for higher accuracy, new smart notification privacy features, and locking the GPS altitude to the elevation data in the maps themselves, among other features.

On the other hand,  Fenix 5X plus golf GPS watch , which is the higher end watch of the plus series receives new polymer Oximeter hardware/software solutions that are probably to be also approved as a medical device. All above that are the features of new software, and most focused on hiking realm, but it is also suitable for other sports like golf too.
