Not just where you're going, but where you've been.

The Fenix utilizes Garmin's GPS technology to provide navigation and tracking functionalities to guide your next adventure, whether by road, trail, or machete-hacked jungle. The built-in sensors give you the information on heading, elevation, and weather to guide you, in simplest terms, from Point A to Point B. On top of electronics worthy of the space program, the Fenix was built to endure the harshest abuse that Mother Nature can dish out and look good doing it.

The Fenix is equipped with altimeter, barometer and compass sensors to provide relevant real-time information. The three-axis electronic compass keeps your bearing whether you’re moving or not. The built-in altimeter provides elevation data to accurately monitor ascent and descent, while the barometer can be used to predict weather changes by showing short-term trends in air pressure.

The Fenix lets you create routes, record up to 1,000 waypoints (such as campsites or points of interest), and record GPS bread crumb trails on the move (tracklogs). Navigate to coordinates, along a track or route, towards waypoints, geocaches or along any other selected bearing. The TracBack function guides you back along a previously recorded tracklog so you can easily find your way to the safety of a vehicle, trailhead or campsite in case of an emergency or bad weather conditions.

The Fenix is equipped with both ANT+ capabilities and Bluetooth to wirelessly share tracks, waypoints, routes and geocaches with other compatible Garmin devices or smartphones. The ANT+ features also make the Fenix compatible with heart rate monitor straps and other ANT+ devices. It also auto-calibrates its ABC sensors using its GPS receiver and automatically sets the time based on location. It provides real-time performance data, such as distance, pace, cadence and calories, helping you keep track of your progress during and after your adventures. 

The Fenix combines a strong housing to survive shocks with a mineral glass lens to resist scratching. It boasts a large LCD display with LED backlight and a robust polyurethane wristband. It’s waterproof to 50 meters and has a battery life of up to 50 hours in GPS mode (depends on settings) and up to 6 weeks in watch mode. Basic watch functions include alarms, tones, vibration alerts, timer, stopwatch and world clock with the ability to display several times zones at once.

The Garmin Fenix comes in one size. It's available in Black.

Had High Hopes

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

After owning many other Garmin products I gave the Fenix a shot. Needless to say I was quite disappointed. The unit I received never worked. Not even once. I went for a four hour hike and came back and uploaded the data to view it. It showed that I did a 40 second hike. From there it got worse and would not get a satellite signal or register anything for that matter. I contacted Garmin support which was just as effective as the Fenix watch I received. I finally returned it (although I felt like smashing it with a hammer like the photo below) and resorted to using my old Garmin 705 on hikes and backcountry skiing instead.

Good from Far, Far from Good

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have put this watch through the ringer over the past 4 months and have found my opinions at this point. This watch is great fit on the wrist and the buttons don't accidentally press when in use. The Fenix looks nice and is user friendly when setting up or when working with it in the field. I just recently spent a year with the Forerunner 610 and this watch had accidental button issues and a small screen.

The GPS when working does download nicely with Garmin Connect and provides a really good interface of your route/training history that is usable and easy to use. Kudos for this feature as I find it indispensable.

So that's the good, the bad is I constantly have issues with the satellites initially connecting, the ANT+ does not always stay connected to my HRM band and the bluetooth is useless as it does not connect to my IPhone. The ANT+ issue is really bothersome as adding additional devices like power is not gonna happen.

Garmin really needs to allow us to download the latest software to the watch and make this unit truly dynamic and a tool that you can modify and grow with your needs and activity. Why we don't have good software upgrades is boggling to the brain with today's technology and fast changing pace of software development.

This is a good watch just don't expect it to do what it's little microprocessor could be possible of doing.

Ride ON!

So happy using my hammer

I smashed the watch using a big hammer. After months of disgraceful experiences using this device on the trail, I feel myself free. Battery problems, freezes thousands of times. Inaccurate readings, etc. This is the worse Garmin GPS ever (I own 5 different models, without any complaints).

I''ll buy a Suunto Ambit unit wich I am pretty sure is a more solid gadget.

So happy using my hammer

Great Watch: Easy to use

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Been using this watch since Christmas 2012. Mainly I use it as a trail running watch, but also on a few winter hikes in the Appalachians.. It grabs the signal pretty quickly and is very accurate (after I updated the software). IMPORTANT to keep the software updated.

If you are just a runner this probably isn't your watch. If you Hike, Hunt, Run, etc - this is your huckleberry. I like the Garmin Connect features which allow you to share maps. I was talking to a guy about a trail that we run and I was missing a turn that would take me on a longer run by the river. After about an hour of, "you know where it gets sandy - just after the power lines..."he just sent me his route and I saved it on my watch. Very cool and practical.

I look forward to using it more for hunting and winter backpacking this year. I will be carrying my JOOS to keep it charged while in the backcountry. When in GPS mode it can suck the battery.

Hope y'all find this helpful.


Favorite watch yet

    I absolutely love this watch. I took it out the other day for a 2.75 mile hike, and it performed beautifully. the gps worked wonderfully at recording my track. Plus I feel the altimeter, barometer, and compass functions are more accurate than my suunto core. But then again, those don't have GPS functions, and are still pretty accurate. Very happy with my purchase!
