The watch industry is so busy that it is sometimes hard to follow, but L'Officiel has the latest news in outdoor watches so you can stop researching and go back to keeping time on your adventures. A year after launching the Fenix 5, Garmin has unveiled a Fenix 5 Plus with new features that extreme sportsmen and adventurers have been coveting. Some of these are integrated mapping and a new oxygen blood saturation analysis sensor, the latter of which comes in handy at high altitudes. It also features designs for everyday use, such as contactless payment via the GarminPay function and storage space for up to 500 music tracks. This range is available in three sizes (42, 47, and 51 millimeters) and stands out for its robustness and high-end finishes.

If you want a more urban style, Garmin also offers a hybrid watch with a classic needle look. The vívomove HR is a daily companion equipped with an activity tracker that encourages you not to lay around too long. The cardio wrist sensor, accelerometer, and smart notifications are also at the ready. Let's move!
