The Garmin Fenix 5 is one of the most advanced sports watches you can buy, and it’s jam-packed with features for running, cycling, swimming, golf and even skydiving. But so many of the Fenix 5’s best features are buried within sub-menus and can be a little complex find.

When you first set up your Fenix you’ll be given a serious of sports to choose from, which will make up your main menu, accessed by pressing the Start button (at 2 o’clock).
But what’s that? You forgot to add urban paddleboarding? No worries, just head to the menu and choose the +Add option. You can then access the full list of sports. Say again?

From there you browse apps including new sports including sailing and basketball.
