Garmin Fenix 5X Plus review: Champion multi-sport GPS watch with music, Garmin Pay, and advanced sleep tracking Review | ZDNet

 

The Garmin Fenix series is designed for those who participate in more than just running and cycling and if you enjoy tracking every detail of your outdoor adventures then it is a watch to consider. The long battery life makes it something you can wear...

Stunning rock solid hardware ; Multi-day battery life ; Music and payment support without a phone ; Accurate GPS and activity tracker ; Clear and crisp color display ; Five button navigation with no touchscreen ; Outstanding software providing all the...

Music setup is still a bit clunky ; Expensive ; Pulse Ox data isn't yet syncing to the app or Garmin website

Garmin Fenix 2 Watch Review: Jack of All Trades, Master of Many

 

The Fenix 2 is the watch Garmin has made to appeal to active people who might end up doing... well, just about anything outdoors. It's not just for runners, just for swimmers, just for snowboarders, or just for hikers, it's for people who want a single...

Garmin fenix 2

 

The Garmin fenix 2 is the successor to the fenix, which made its debut almost three years ago, long before the current smart watch furore. Although the fenix 2 has been on the market for a little while too, Garmin has no plans to discontinue it now...

Multi-sports tracking including swimming ; ANT+ sensor compatibility ; Street price now very reasonable

Chunky design compared to recent smartwatches ; 32MB memory is still not very much if you add maps ; Low screen resolution

The Garmin fenix 2 looks quite functional compared to the most recent glitzy smartwatches, but it still offers a comprehensive ability to track your activities across multiple sports.

Garmin Fenix 2 trail running watch review

 

Run more ruggedly, with fitness and location tracking for the serious outdoorsman

Wide-ranging feature set ; decent battery life so long as you leave off the notifications ; Olympic-grade sensor array and GPS reliability (despite slow lock-on for the latter)

Feels overpriced and out of date ; hefty build ; should be superseded by Fenix 3 by March/April 2015

If you can pick this up at a discount once the Fenix 3 arrives, or are a trail runner who prioritises features over usability, get stuck in. If not, there are better running watches out there for the same price or less The Fenix 2 is a potentially...

Cheaper than it’s competitors ; Multi-purpose fitness/navigation watch ; Provides great data on all your physical activities in the one device

Poor website and software ; Annoying to charge ; Cumbersome

The apps and website are both a mess. It’s extremely difficult to load maps and routes onto the watch. I found it to be unreliable in navigational situations. While it did help sometimes, it wasn’t something I could count on. I also experienced some...

Garmin Fenix 2 Watch Review: Jack of All Trades, Master of Many

 

The Fenix 2 is the watch Garmin has made to appeal to active people who might end up doing... well, just about anything outdoors. It's not just for runners,

In general, I think this watch is awesome, but it depends what you're into. If you're just a casual runner, then this is definitely overkill. Or if you want a watch for navigating backcountry, then this ain't it (check out the upcoming Suunto Ambit 3...

. Software kept failing so I took it back. Cotswold replaced but the next one leaked. Buy a forerunner 920 xt instead!
