High resolution Display
The fenix 5X Plus Sapphire features a 1.2" diameter, sunlight-visible, transflective memory-in-pixel (MIP) color display with a resolution of 240 x 240 pixels. When the Gesture feature is turned on, the backlight comes on when you raise or turn your arm to look at your wrist.
The fenix 5X Plus Sapphire has a 10 ATM water rating, which means it can withstand pressures equivalent to a depth of 100 meters (328 feet). Not only can you wear the device in the rain and wet weather, you can even swim with it. It is not recommended for scuba diving.
The fenix 5X Plus Sapphire comes with pre-loaded map data, including full-color topographical maps, BirdsEye imagery, BlueChart marine charts, and City Navigator street maps. The map data is optimized for the watch, providing "at-a-glance" navigation and location tracking right on your wrist.
The fenix 5X Plus lets you download up to 500 songs to the device's built-in 16 GB memory, and listen to them on your Bluetooth headphones. You can control your music playback right on your wrist. Controls include play, pause, skip to next file, fast forward, restart current file, skip to previous file, rewind the current file, repeat, and shuffle.
Pulse Ox with Acclimation
The watch features a wrist-based Pulse Ox Acclimation sensor that monitors your blood oxygen saturation levels as you work out. This is especially useful to see how your body acclimates to high altitudes for alpine sports and expeditions. The Pulse Oximeter widget displays your most recent blood oxygen saturation percentage, a graph of your hourly average for the past 24 hours, and a graph of your elevation for the last 24 hours.
