Again out of stock in Germany

Back in stock at a bargain price!
As expected, the offer was not going to last long, but the price has gone up and is now more interesting in Spain.

New deal on the Garmin Fenix 5 Plus , which puts it at its lowest price (by far). As in previous occasions, it will last very little because they will fly.

Here's the Fenix 5 Plus at Black Friday price. Not November and not Friday. What do you think?

See offer in Amazon Germany

Yes, I know the price has been falling down over time and the real discount is not that big, but believe me when I tell you it's VERY GOOD. Here you can check the current price in other stores.

The offer is in Germany. You can use the same Amazon account you use in your country, only if you're a Prime user you won't have free shipping. However, the shipping costs are really low, which makes up more than enough for the discount they have given you today.

 

Garmin Fenix 5 Plus, is it still a good choice?

Yeah, it is. And why? Because it integrates all these options that are reserved for Garmin's high-end models:

  • Full colour maps. The maps were previously available exclusively on the 5X
  • Altimeter calibration with accurate data thanks to integrated maps and GPS coordinates
  • With ClimbPro, which separates the different climbs we have on a route into independent parts
  • Smart route calculation thanks to Trendline, straight on the watch (just like Garmin Edges)
  • Supports Galileo satellites
  • Music playback via Bluetooth, both transferred to the watch and streaming platforms such as Spotify and Amazon Prime Music, downloading the music wirelessly
  • 16GB capacity to store both maps and music
  • Garmin Pay for NFC payments
  • Better antenna design for external sensors, increasing the distance the watch will receive data from

In other words, we have all the star features of the new 2019 and 2020 models, but at a reduced price: maps, music, wireless payments and ClimbPro.

Garmin Fenix 5 Plus - ClimbPro

As I say in all watch reviews that include maps, the most useful function is not when creating a route on the watch. At least, not exclusively. Actually, the most common thing is that routes will come from somewhere else such as Wikiloc, from the race organizer or simply you design it from your computer.

You'll find the most interesting part of the maps halfway through a route. That moment when you are in the middle of the mountain and you reach an intersection, being able to look at your wrist and see where each of the paths is headed to choose the one you prefer (because one thing is cartography, and quite another the real situation), is totally unpayable.

And not only that, it is also practically magic that at any moment you can tell the watch that you want to return to start, and that it calculates the fastest route to follow, which does not necessarily have to be the same path used to get to that point.

Maps are certainly the best feature of this Fenix 5 Plus, but it's not the only one. There's also the music playback, where the amount of streaming platforms available stands out: Spotify, Amazon MusicDeezer... In fact, Garmin is, as of today, the only "wearable"to have compatibility with such a number of platforms.

Garmin Fenix 5 Plus

Naturally, the question is whether it's a good idea to opt for the Fenix 5 Plus instead of going directly to the Fenix 6 Pro. This one came to the market last year so logic says that, in theory, it is better to invest in the most current model. But which one are you most interested in? In summary, these are the main stuff that the new model has:

  • PacePro
  • Power Manager
  • Data displays with up to 6 metrics
  • Sony GNSS chipset with higher battery life
  • Temperature and altitude acclimation

But of course... we are talking about a little more than 200€ difference between the Fenix 6 Pro and the Fenix 5 Plus. I think that this price difference is not worth it for the improvements that you will have in the new model, since the "fat" is in the navigation maps, function that is exactly identical in both models.

Anyway, I leave you the direct link to the Garmin Fenix 5 and 5S Plus review, so you can see for yourself what this Garmin watch is capable of.

And with that... thanks for reading!

    1. A few days ago I put an Amazon offer on social networks, but it lasted minutes. I don't think we'll see them promoted because they are totally new to the market, and generally this kind of Black Friday sales are focused on models with more time on the market.

  1. Hi, has anyone bought this bargain and received it? I did, but Amazon Germany, 12 days after I paid for it, cancelled my order today, claiming shipping restrictions. Of course they don't want to compensate me with anything, and if I want I can buy it again, but at a different, more expensive price.
    I don't know if it has also happened to someone else, but I have the impression that they made a mistake with the price and now they are canceling the orders claiming anything... I hope I am not the only one who has been left with the desire, and looking like a fool...

  2. My partner got screwed a few days ago his Suunto Spartan Trainer, and seeing the price at which they are getting the Fenix 5, we think that instead of going to the Suunto 5, the choice will be the Fenix 5S Plus. A little more reel, but is that the Suunto 5 hardly represents improvement and the Fenix ecreo that will be a new world.

  3. Hello

    I am hesitating between the phenix 5 plus, the coro apex or a suunto 7.

    I'm an occasional marathon runner and now I'm getting into trail running, with the intention of doing an ultra next year.
    I am an Apple Watch 5 user so I am looking for poder to have more data and poder to load specific workouts.
    It is true that music on the wrist for me is a must ... but I can go out with 2 watches and always keep the Apple on one wrist, I do not know.
    What do you recommend? And where can I find the best price...

    Thank you!

    1. If you want to do ultra, that rules out the Suunto 7 because the battery will not hold the hours you need. And in that sense the Fenix 5 Plus is not that much more than the Fenix 5 Plus.

      The COROS APEX Pro is a good option (although the route navigation is weak). My recommendation would be the Fenix 6 Pro with which you will have autonomy, maps and music.
