There are a lot of reasons to love the new year. A lot of people like it because they see it as a time to get a fresh start on old goals. Here at HiConsumption? We love it because of all the product releases coming out of the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. The most recent one to catch our eye is Garmin’s new Fenix 5 series.

The Swedish specialists in all things GPS have updated their Fenix line something serious. Each of the three watches announced at this year’s CES will boast heart rate monitors, GPS and GLONASS tracking, as well as daily fitness tracking (think calories burned, sleep monitoring, and steps). The GPS technology allows users to to measure distance, speed, pace, and other specifics while on the bike or running the trails. Not too groundbreaking on its own, but paired with an drastically improved battery life (ranging from 8 days of normal use on the 5S to 12 on the 5X) and a bevy sport specific profiles, it’s a real step up. Out of the three models, the 42mm 5S, the 47m 5, and 51mm 5X, we covet the latter the most. It will come with preloaded topographic US maps, trip routing for running and cycling, and a feature called Around Me that will identify points of interest within range for users to run, walk, or bike to. When these hit the market in March they’ll run between $500 and $700. [Purchase]
