Fenix 5 plus - how long does it last?

Hi,

is battery life still bad on the Fenix 5 plus or has it improved in the last few months?

Is battery life also that bad on the Fenix 5x plus?

  • Mine is terrible. I went from 100% to 18% on a 5 1/2 hour hike.  That’s not acceptable. I need something that will last a full 12 hour day. And I’m not impressed with the UltraTrac GPS. Last time I used it was FB by over a mile on a 5 mile hike. Frustrated and ready to jump to Suunto.
