All you need to know about your Training
Your aim to continuously improve your performance drives you through countless hours of training. The fenix 5’s new Performance Widget holds all the information you need to easily access in one place, to better track your fitness level and help you to train more efficiently.
Training Status: Tells you how effective your training is and provides guidance on whether your workouts are productive and making progress.
VO2Max Estimator: Crunches, running or cycling performance data to estimate the maximum volume of oxygen you can consume per minute and gives you an indication of your level of fitness.
Training Load: Tells you how hard you train over a period of time no matter which activity.
Recovery Advisor: The Recovery Timer tells you the recommended recovery time counting down from your last workout.
More advanced indicators like your Functional Threshold Power (FTP) and Lactate Threshold help you to better judge your actual performance level during cycling or running and the Race Predictor eventually estimates your ideal finish time for a 5k, 10k, half marathon and marathon distance races based on your current VO2max number. Training Effect 2.0 will provide aerobic and anaerobic benefit scores for each training session, so that you understand whether your high-intensity interval training really pays off.
Step up your Running
Now you can go further with your running data. Garmin training features that tap into extended physiological metrics and advanced running dynamics1 can help improve your form and overall performance. These metrics include performance condition that compares your actual condition to your average fitness level, running cadence, and stride length. Make every run a personal challenge, compete against others on Strava Live Segments, get alerts for segment starts and finishes, view leaderboard rankings, and see how your current effort compares to your personal record.
Select the fenix 5 Performer Bundle with the HRM TRI chest strap so you can access additional fenix 5 metrics3.

Navigate the Great Outdoors, Your Way
Each fenix 5 guides you safely on and off the beaten path combining GPS/GLONASS positioning, advanced sensors and well known Garmin navigation features like TracBack™.
