Garmin fenix review

 

A smart watch for the outdoors that's as easy as ABC

Breadth of data ; Excellent build quality ; Long battery life ; BaseCamp app

Expensive ; Locating satellites is slow ; On-watch maps are poor ; No touchscreen

Garmin Fenix Performer Bundle

 

Garmin's fenix rises from the pack with hiking and sports features that are unique for a GPS watch.

Up to 50 hours of GPS usage in UltraTrac mode ; Compatible with ANT+ sensors ; PC or smartphone data upload and download

Expensive ; No facility to add topographic maps ; Chunky

If you want OS mapping on your GPS, the Fenix is a non-starter, but for easy to use, portable tracking and basic navigation of pre-loaded routes it's brilliant and has the huge advantage of being on your wrist, so it's alway available.

Good for Swimming. Steep learning curve

 

I used mainly for indoor swimming, works well, however it is no easy to program all the functions. I paired it with a nexus 5, no issues with bluetooth conectivity.

Great GPS watch

 

Bought the Fenix 2 because of the extended battery life option. Used it a couple of times and so far has worked great. Some of the info is a bit hard to read while running because of the small font,

Average

 

The watch I purchased had to be sent to Garmin because of a bad battery. They sent me a refurbished unit. It just died and worst it had my mount Whitney summit data on it and Garmin made no effort to scrub from the memory. This was the reason for my...
