The belief is that this PLUS RANGE, across the Garmin Fenix 5, 5S & 5X, will be available by September. IF SO, given the problems with the first batch of Garmin Vivoactive 3 & Forerunner 645, I, for one, will wait till close to Christmas before getting one (assuming I do).
Given that Music and Pay are now available on the Forerunner 645 I knew it would just be a matter of time before Garmin had to offer it on the Fenix 5 range. I am interested in Pay, but not the music. I like the sound of silence I can experience where I run — i.e., basically in the woods of New Hampshire.
Built-in maps, as in the Fenix 5x, on a 5 Plus, would be nice.
Galileo navigation will augment GPS and GLONASS and promises to provide better accuracy since it is a non-military system aimed at consumers — such as us.
No wonder the Fenix 5 prices are dropping.
I will keep you posted.
