Fenix 5 is well built, designed to be rugged. So far no issues. I got the non-sapphire glass w/ stainless steel back. Buttons have a solid "click." Silicon strap is very soft but does the job
The display could be brighter: it's a tradeoff. It's designed to monitor your health and provide long battery life; a brighter display would kill battery life. I've gone 5 straight days without charging with heavy use: I'm always clicking the buttons, viewing the information... The display has a reflective property which is cool, under sunlight on an angle the display becomes readable. It's cool...
NASHBAR: Awesome customer service. Kate S., CSR emailed me directly. I did NOT want to buy on Amazon as I don't trust independent Amazon sellers... which is why I found NASHBAR... Alright, have a great day!
