    "I like this watch; it's similar to the Apple Watch. It's absolutely huge, though! Even my husband says it's too big, and he's fairly large himself. The mapping feature is awesome, but the heart rate monitoring can be inconsistent at times. Overall, it's a decent watch, but I'd prefer something much sleeker and easier on the eyes. I feel like I have a laptop strapped to my wrist when wearing it. "

    "This is my first time trying a Garmin smart watch. The Garmin Fenix 5X Sapphire offers great activity tracker and even a GPS map of where i am. Garmin smart watches as definitely on the more costly side of the fence. I do like the all metal band."

    "I needed a watch for my work as a meteorologist as well as my personal life, and this one has been acceptable. I like that it records barometric pressure- it's useful when having to write reports. That said, I wish it contained a thermometer as well. If it did, it would do my job for me!"

This is built for the runner and athlete. Mapping your runs is so easy with this product. Plus, you have every weather reading you could want available at your fingertips. A must have for people who love to run."

    "I love everything about this watch! Well everything but the price. This watch is very expensive compared to others on the market. The look of it makes you think you're wearing a regular stylish watch, but it also has gps and other tracking capabilities. There are also different styles that you can choose from, and based on the reviews most people really love it!"

    "Price to be sure, but I felt the capabilities and ruggedness that this watch offered were worth it. It can do anything a regular smart watch can do, with a gorgeous display that's easy to read and very intuitive, but at the same time it's designed for those on the go. This watch is meant to be taken out and used, not just be a pretty thing. It has a host of apps and features that I use every day. For those serious about smart watches you can't go wrong with this one."

    "Although I hesitated to buy this watch initially due to the price tag, I am so happy that I finally gave in and decided to purchase one. I use this smartwatch constantly, and it has definitely become a mainstay in my life. This smartwatch is perfect for people who train as well as people who are looking to improve their fitness level. It also has a really aesthetically pleasing design, which can't be said for other competitor brands. This smartwatch has so much to offer and it has definitely been a worthy investment. It provides a host of valuable information for tracking all of your fitness accomplishments and is definitely a worthwhile purchase in my opinion."

    "This watch is a little pricey so that might stop most people from buying it. But it is amazing. The small form factor really makes the watch look great on its own without the smart features. But the gps features is where it really shines. I highly recommend this watch if you have the money. There are cheaper options out there but they really don't compete."

    "Garmin Fenix 5x? Its a large smartwatch that is avilable in a couple different colors. The face is nice and bright, even mid day in the sun. It also features a built in compass. I find it entertaning that a digital watch would have a compass. Joke was on me "most everything smart does". Garmin Fenix 5X has helped me set goals and stick to them. I am moving more then ever and can monitor my Hbpm. "

While it has gotten generally positive reviews, some have complained that it does not connect very easily to other devices. And, it also is quite expensive, however, it is one of the best smartwatches on the market."

    "Garmin Fenix 5X Sapphire is a smartwatch from Garmin and is available from Amazon for $699.99. It has many smartwatch functions, including a very accurate GPS. Info can be viewed through Garmin Connect. A lot of smartwatchs look goofy and I wouldn't wear one, but this is amazing looking. It is suitable for many uses and one of them would be for Alzheimer patients. It fits the topic well."

    "When it comes to Garmin, nothing compares! Fast GPS aquisition - usually takes seconds to get GPS lock....The battery life isn’t the best when in full GPS track mode, but I can get a full day of tracking with about 1/4 of the battery left. Tons of features for the outdoor/indoor activist.Watch body is rugged - I work on my vehicles all the time with it on and have banged it against metal control arms, skid plates, etc and it barely shows signs of wear and tear. There are some worn spots near the edges but other than that it still looks great."
