If you’re a serious athlete that’s been looking for a powerful multisport fitness watch, odds are you’ve stumbled across Garmin’s fēnix line of devices. While they are quite pricey, the fēnix 3 line has proven to be one of the most powerful multisport watches on the market.

At CES 2017, Garmin has unveiled three new entries to its fēnix lineup, the fēnix 5, fēnix 5S and fēnix 5X.

As the names might suggest, all three of these new devices are in the same family, so they all sport most of the same features. There are a few big differentiators between the three, though. The fēnix 5S, for instance, is a lighter, sleeker and smaller version of the standard fēnix 5. The fēnix 5 is the standard model, sporting all the same features as the 5S in a bigger form factor. The 5X is the highest-end device in the bunch, complete with preloaded wrist-based mapping.

If you’ve ever tried switching out the strap on a traditional watch, you’d know it can be quite a hassle. With Garmin’s new QuickFit bands, though, users will easily be able to switch between leather, metal and sporty bands without tools.

The fēnix 5 is the standard model of the group. Measuring 47mm, it’s more compact than previous models like the fēnix 3HR, but still packs all the multisport features you’d come to expect from the series.

All three fēnix 5 devices come preloaded with full multisport functionality for running, hiking, swimming, biking and more. They all feature Garmin’s impressive Elevate heart rate trackers, water resistance up to 100 meters, as well as built-in navigation features with a 3-axis compass, gyroscope and barometric altimeter, and, of course, a GPS.

They all also feature a variety of connected features that make these devices true smartwatches. Users can get call, text and email smartphone notifications. All Sapphire models are also Wi-Fi enabled, so users will be able to connect with their home network and upload statistics even if their smartphones aren’t around.
