Well, I did it and Iím only slightly ashamed. I bought a Garmin Fenix 5x and I kinda like it. Iím getting old(38) and decided I need to refocus on getting healthy and working out. I had looked at a few smart watches but just couldnít bring myself to do it. Iíve been a mechanical timepiece drum beater forever.
I happened across the Fenix 5x and as an avid bow hunter the idea of having a full gps on my wrist was appealing. Well this weekend I took the plunge and got one. Overall Iím actually really impressed with it and have found it to be pretty easy to use. The size is a bit ridiculous at 51mm but I have a giant wrist and it is shockingly comfortable. Overall I think it was a good purchase and as long as I consider it a ďwrist computerĒ and not an actual watch in my collection, I donít feel like too big of a hypocrite.
