Garmin Epix Gen 2 review: The ultimate fitness watch


The Garmin Epix might be the king of smart fitness watches, delivering more health metrics and detailed information than any other device.

Up to 16 days of battery life Incredibly precise heart rate tracking Detailed health metrics Built-in altimeter and compass Great social features Extensive data customization

High price tag Some metrics feel inaccurate No ability to respond to messages through the watch

“The Garmin Epix series 2 provides detailed, in-depth health metrics for dedicated athletes and beginners alike.”

Epix (2nd Gen) review: Garmin's best modern GPS sports watch | ZDNet


People with smartwatches enjoy brilliant modern AMOLED displays, but with the Garmin Epix athletes no longer have to compromise on the display experience. There is still more from Garmin that can be added in a future Epix, but this one is our favorite...

Gorgeous, brilliant AMOLED display -High quality sapphire and titanium materials ; Touchscreen and five-button navigation interface ; Powerful Garmin ecosystem and capability ; Solid battery life ; Support for a vast number of sports and activities

Expensive ; No phone call or voice assistant support

Garmin Epix Gen 2 review


A review of the Garmin Epix 2 - what is the Garmin Epix 2 like, how long is the battery life, and who is it recommended for?

So, if you value battery life above all else, go with the Fenix 7; if you want something that looks better on your wrist, the Garmin Epix makes for the more stunning wearable.

Garmin's New Epix Is an Absurdly Excellent Fitness Watch


With a stunning screen, excellent health-tracking, and all the GPS sports features you've come to love from Garmin, the Epix is the best watch I've ever used.

Absolutely gorgeous display, which finally has touch, making mapping and navigating a lot easier; new heart rate sensors and GPS technology for improved accuracy; ski maps even show the names of runs; lower-profile than previous generation

Garmin Epix


The Garmin Epix is the company's first watch to combine the features of its sports watches – and we mean all of them – with its wrist-based GPS mapping devices.

Full-colour European TOPO recreational maps included ; Comprehensive activity-type support ; Rugged and waterproof to 50m

Interface needs getting used to ; Not as sleek as some smart watches ; Expensive

The Garmin Epix delivers possibly all the multi-sports and activity watch functionality you could ever need.

Garmin Epix review: Life-saving reliability


When you venture out into the wild, even if that's just a walk in the not-so-local woods, you want a GPS device you can rely on. Garmin, with years of experience in that area, is a name that generally offers peace of mind. When it comes to the Epix...

Battery life, maps, GPS speed and accuracy, ruggedness, display, apps

Size and chunky build

The Garmin Epix might be the company's only watch-based mapping option but it's clear the experience of its other mapping products has been included. However, as a day-to-day watch it's definitely on the larger, chunky side.
