I've had one of those (or, at least, something that looks the same!) for a few years now - it works well for charging.
For data transfers, it can be a bit hit and miss - but I'd say no more so than the genuine Garmin cable. I've had knock-off cables with the Garmin-style connector that were completely useless - IME, the dock-style ones are far better.

(For reference, I have a Fenix 5X and my wife has a Fenix Plus 5S)

The dock arrived in the post at lunchtime. Garmin plugged in, it fired up straight away and is now 100% charged. :)

Thanks for that Gus.

Good news 👍

The other good thing is that, unlike the official charging cable, you can still wear the watch/dock combo on your wrist whilst charging it up from a powerbank (in a pocket), if you are doing a particularly long activity :-)

Er, I don't think that applies to me. :)

Got something to say?
