Garmin fenix Review

 

With the recent Stravafication of running and cycling it seems there is little reason to go anywhere or do anything unless it's GPS tracked for speed, distance, and time. What good is going outdoors if we're not able to capture each data point for...

Stylish, sophisticated yet rugged design ; Huge display reads well during serious activity ; Solid GPS tracking options ; ANT+ and Bluetooth communication ; Cadence and speed capture for cyclists ; Good battery life ; Waterproof to 50 meters

Menu layout is confusing and difficult to navigate ; Profiles and data pages are complicated to set up ; No swimming or snowboard/ski profile ; Full manual is only available online ; Documentation lacks in detail

There's little the fenix does that smartphone apps can't do a whole lot cheaper, but it will reliably churn out data long after your phone has died or lost connectivity and it looks fantastic doing it.

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

This a seriously expensive, serious outdoors watch for serious outdoors use, so if you don't know how to read and interpret paper maps or take compass bearings, don't expect the Garmin fēnix to stop you getting lost. The Garmin fēnix is a high-end...

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

The Garmin fenix is packed with useful functions for the serious hiker or mountaineer, although it does have a major drawback – its price. At £349 for the watch on its own, or an extra £30 for the Performer Bundle, it’s more expensive than any of...

Garmin Fenix

 

Garmin's Fenix is the GPS brand's first outdoors GPS watch and while it has DNA in common with Garmin's running watches, it has two basic ad...

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.

Love it! Basecamp integration rocks!

 

I have only had this for a few days but so far in town it is working great. The controls are really simple to use. Hit the big orange menu button twice and the GPS starts. Acquires the satellites really quick. Easy to turn off the GPS to save battery...

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...
