For your outdoor adventures

Don't hit the trail without a reliable companion close by — in this case, as close as your wrist. Garmin's fenix GPS watch is ready to tackle the toughest outdoor adventures, whether it's a morning trail run or a multi-day expedition. fenix is built tough, with a scratch-resistant mineral glass lens, a shock-resistant housing, and a polyurethane wristband that sheds sweat and odor. Don't worry about hitting the drink on a stream crossing, either — fenix is waterproof to 50 meters.

Garmin fenix

Your fenix includes a built-in altimeter, barometer, and compass.

Navigate with confidence

Before you take off on your adventure, use Garmin's free Base Camp software to plan your trip on your computer, then upload it to fenix. You can take advantage of waypoints you've recorded on previous trips, so you'll be sure to find that special campsite the next time around. When you're on the trail, fenix drips virtual breadcrumbs along the way, creating a tracklog you can retrace if necessary. The watch's memory can store up to 1000 waypoints, so you can record trail junctions, water sources, scenic vistas, camp sites — any location you want. You can share fenix's data with other Garmin devices and compatible smartphones through the ANT+ or Bluetooth links.

The ABCs

fenix comes equipped with an altimeter, barometer, and compass, giving you valuable information you may need in the backcountry. You can also add the optional tempe™ external temperature sensor for accurate real-time temperature data. It's a cool way to keep track of the temperature outside your tent at night.

Not just for the wild

You can enjoy using fenix around town too. This full-featured watch boasts fitness features like AutoLap and AutoPause, and it also works with ANT+ heartrate monitors and bike sensors, so you can incorporate it into your fitness routine.

Exactly What I Wanted

Written by: Mitch from Coachella Valley, CA on August 24, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I've tried a few other fitness/hiking watches from Garmin and other manufacturers but none of them were quite what I was looking for. The fenix is. Worked well for me straight from the box but the ability to create custom profiles helped make it exactly what I wanted.

Pros: Custom profiles, battery life, quick satellite acquisition.

Cons: A little bulky

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I have yet to fully explore the possibilities of this "watch." I gave it a "5" already because it is a Garmin, and for the fantastic potential it offers.

Pros: My Casio Pathfinder was "it" - until this Fenix added technology (like tracking) that I once could only hope for.

Cons: It doesn't have all the glitz of watches that do way less.
