On Monday, Garmin unveiled its series of Fenix 5 Plus smartwatches. The three watches – the Fenix 5S Plus, the Fenix 5 Plus, and the Fenix 5X Plus – are upgrades to Garmin’s Fenix 5 line, which it launched last year.
The new watches start at $700 and have new features like on-watch music storage, advanced GPS mapping, and contactless payments.
The Fenix 5 Plus series, which includes the Fenix 5 Plus, Fenix 5S Plus and Fenix 5X Plus, now come with Garmin Pay support to make contactless payments.
The music storage has been ported over from the Forerunner 645 Music, so you’re getting 4GB of memory which is enough room for about 500 songs. This allows you to stream music when paired with Bluetooth headphones, no smartphone needed. You can also download offline playlists from music streaming services such as iHeartradio and Deezer.
