I Have Now Had My Garmin Fenix 5 For 4-Months.
It feels SO NATURAL on my wrist. I am totally at ease with it. Huge difference to the 90-days I forced myself to wear the dread Fitbit Ionic — as penance for the stupidity of buying it.
I was aware of the Fitbit Ionic each and every day I had it on. Though I use my Fenix 5, every day, it never feels like an imposition.
It hasn’t given me any grief per se.
Two things that I am crushingly disappointed about:
- How it measures STEPS while you are on a bumpy vehicle,
- How its open-water swimming measurements are utter garbage.
Both of them should, and could, be fixed. We must have a ‘widget’/function that lets us TURN-OFF step counting. That will stop it recording bogus steps.
It has to improve its open-water swimming mechanism.
Other than that, I am happy with it.
