Garmin Fenix 5 Plus Review: When More Can Mean Less OK cards on the table. To my mind, the Garmin Fenix series has never been a looker. Particularly when you compared it to the lines seen on any of the Suunto Spartan watches, and especially the new Suunto 9 – reviewed here Personally, I feel…
At the end of last year, the 200-pound fitness gorilla which is Garmin decided to get into the running power game. In typical Garmin style, they haven’t done it in the simplest of ways.

For 2017 the Polar M460 receives a small spec bump from the original Polar M450. But Polar clearly shows that tight dimensions and even tighter pricing doesn’t mean you have to skimp on features. Plus if you ice the cake with Strava Live Segments, you might have a winning device!
