Garmin has added three new color options to its premium multisport GPS smartwatch, the fēnix 5S. Available now in Rose Goldtone, Pink Meringue, and Frost Blue, the fēnix 5S comes with everyday activity tracking, 24/7 heart rate monitoring, increased battery life, Garmin Elevate wrist heart rate technology, and more.

There are swappable QuickFit bands that are bundled with the fēnix 5S, where users can choose between stainless steel, leather, or bright pastel colored silicone bands. The Rose Goldtone variant has a premium rose gold stainless steel bezel, rear casing, buckle, and buttons that are paired with a white silicone QuickFit strap. Exclusive to Southeast Asia are the Frost Blue and Pink Meringue variants.

These new variants sport a scratch-resistant Sapphire crystal lens, and are also water rated at up to 100 meters. The fēnix 5S also has built-in navigation features like a barometric altimeter, 3-axis compass, and a gyroscope. There is also GLONASS support, alongside GPS for better tracking.

In terms of battery life, the fēnix 5S can last up to nine days in smartwatch mode, 12 hours in GPS mode, and up to 28 hours in UltraTrac mode with the heart rate monitor feature activated. Users can also receive calls, app notifications, as well as text messages upon pairing the smartwatch with a smartphone too. Garmin's Connect IQ Store allows users to customize the fēnix 5S with apps, data fields, and watch faces. The Face-It app, on the other hand, lets users choose a photo of choice as their watch face.

The fēnix 5S in Frost Blue and Pink Meringue are priced at RM3,149, while the Rose Goldtone variant is priced at RM3,499.
