    I bought this watch as an unplanned spontaneous purchase.
    Purely because of the deal offered by first class watches.
    I made them an offer which I though would be laughed at, they came back with a counter offer that was only just over what I'd offered.

    I would have been stupid to not buy it.

    Brilliant service. I paid for the watch after they had closed, it was processed the next morning and the watch was on my wrist by 0830 the following morning.

    Fast to respond by email and a pleasure to deal with. They deserve their 5 star trust pilot rating.

    Faultless service from Firstclass, had my watch within a day of ordering. Packaged really well and used DPD which in my opinion is one of the best couriers out there. Fenix 5X Plus is the perfect rugged watch for all my sports activities and daily life.

    Customer picture of Garmin Fenix 5X Plus Sapphire Black Rubber Strap 010-01989-01 This is my first experience with a Garmin Fenix 5x Plus and i could not be happier with the purchase. I'm an avid runner and it has really given me great insights and training data to improve my runs and recovery.

    If you are thinking about getting a smartwatch don't bother with apple or Samsung watches. Get yourself one of these and you will not regret it.

    This is so much more than just a watch! It’s big but I like a watch that makes a statement and this one certainly does. But it is really comfortable to wear you forget you have it on. It has rugged outdoor style and all the features to match and you can customise the watch faces or download extras ones to suit as well as easily swap straps. It does all the fitness stuff you could wish for and the onboard maps and music are brilliant extras to have.
