  • Small wrist

    Hi,
    i have a small wirst, about 6.7 inch (17mm) and i am looking for a Fenix 5 plus. Is the Watch too bin for my arm? I want to wear it as a daily Watch, too.
    Or should i switch to the 5S. Can anybody tell me the lug to lug size of both watches?

      I'll agree with the 2nd post in the linked thread. My wrist is about 165mm and while the F5+ is okay I much prefer the F5s+.

        Desired battery life is probably the next most important consideration after size. Much less with the 5S+ than the 5+.

          Locate a store and try them on. 5+ looks nice on my 6 inches wrist and I am pretty sure it will look even better on yours. Also keep in mind that you will wear it just above the wrist bone, where the circumference is larger.

            nicobellic2010 have a look on the DCRAINMAKER site - he does lots of comparisons of all Garmins and generally shows his wife wearing them as well as him and she has quite small wrists - if you can't actually try one that might help.

            Aside from face size the 5+ is also thick and heavy I am starting not to notice it now but I still find the extra thickness makes me more likely to knock it against things (I am comparing with the 935 which is the same size face but much lighter and thinner)

            What features do you need in the Fenix - is it Maps and music?

            If you don't need those and want a really long battery life and a lighter thinner watch (with better GPS accuracy) then you ought to consider the 935

              My wrist size is 7.25 inches and the 5s plus is a good fit. There was plenty of band left over to go under the two loops. For your concern about it being too big there is only a weight issue between the two that I noticed. The 5s+ and 5+ feel similar on the wrist even though the 5+ is heavier. I couldn't really tell the difference and as a side note I used to run with my Samsung s3. For comparison, both watches cases are close to my s3 frontier which was my daily driver until I got the Garmin Instinct. I hope this helps.
