Without Heart Rate It Is Meaningless To Compare ‘Casio Protech’ To ‘Garmin Fenix 5’.

I happened to see the ‘Gear Petrol’ article in my Google News feed and was intrigued to see what this competitor to the Garmin Fenix 5 (Plus) was. A Casio? Wow.

I used to, in the 1980s, be a big fan of Casio though I honestly can’t remember whether I ever owned. I am sure I must have.

While I knew Casio continued to make ruggedized, outdoor watches I did not think they were in the same league as a Garmin Fenix.

So, I looked and did some quick research. Though Casio does make some ‘inexpensive’ watches with Heart Rate (HR), HR is NOT available on the Pro Tech line.

Without HR it is NOT a FITNESS tracker. Just a smartwatch with GPS.

But, Casio has the resources, smarts and drive to get that right. So, as of now I am going to keep an eye on Casio. I suspect that by this time next year Casio may have a watch that is as good as today’s Garmin Fenix 5 (but probably not as good as the ‘Plus’ in that it is unlikely to have music).

So, stay tuned.

My ‘Garmin Fenix 5 Plus’ Is Back On My Wrist After A 11-Day Hiatus.

11-days ago when I strapped on a Polar Vantage V for evaluation.


I finished evaluating the Polar Vantage V. It is an exceptional RUNNING WATCH. So much real-time data when you are doing an activity. Meant for Pro-Athletes who spend many hours a day in strenuous training. The Polar Vantage V is OVERKILL for my hour-a-day of training.

I was sent the Polar for evaluation. I did write a 1,200-word review. So, I did my job.

Now back to my Garmin Fenix 5 Plus. It feels right. I am, by now, so used to Garmin. SMILE.
