Garmin on Wednesday announced the next iteration in its Fenix line of high-end athletic watches. The company unveiled the Fenix 5 and Fenix 5X, as well as the Fenix 5S, the first high-end Garmin watch designed specifically for females. All three watches include GPS and GLONASS to measure pace, distance, speed and other metrics when running, biking and performing a variety of other activities. The watches also feature an optical heart-rate sensor, all-day fitness tracking (steps, calories burned, active minutes and sleep), and the ability to show notifications from an iPhone or Android phone. Demand more from your watch, get more out of life with fēnix®. From rugged and sporty to sophisticated and well-tooled, one of these watches was built just for you. The Fenix 5 measures 47mm in diameter and has a more compact design than the Fenix 3 HR. The watch will also last up to two weeks with normal usage, or up to 20 hours with heart-rate tracking and an active GPS signal, which is a 4-hour improvement over last year's model.
Fenix 5S: The Fenix 5S is a smaller version of the watch designed for women and petite wrists, but delivering the same high-end Fenix performance. The watch measures 42mm in diameter and has a smoother face than other Fenix models. It will last up to 8 days with normal usage, or up to 13 hours with heart rate tracking and an active GPS signal.

Another feature, called Around Me, allows users to see different points of interest, waypoints and other map objects within in their range.
