Built Tough: The Garmin Fenix GPS watch is built to endure the
toughest outdoor conditions. The Garmin Fenix combines a strong housing to
survive shocks with a mineral glass lens to resist scratching. It's waterproof
up to 50 meters. A an adjustable polyurethane wristband makes sure you have the
right fit. The Fenix comes with a black wristband, but can be swapped out for an
orange wristband (both sold separately).

x 70 pixels) with LED backlighting.
GPS Tracking: The GPS watch provides comprehensive navigation and
tracking functionalities, as well as trip information to guide you on and off
the beaten track. The Garmin Fenix lets you create up to 50 routes, store up to
1,000 waypoints (such as campsites or points of interest), and record up to a
10,000 GPS bread crumb trails on the move (tracklogs). You can 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.
ABC (Altimeter/Barometer/Compass) Sensors: The Fenix is equipped with
ABC sensors (altimeter, barometer, and compass) to provide relevant real-time
information on heading, elevation and weather changes. 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 3-axis electronic compass keeps your bearing whether you're
moving or not.
Wireless Communication: 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.
Base Camp: Plan trips and share adventures with friends and family

routes, and mark waypoints and tracks from your computer and then transfer them
to your device. The BaseCamp's Track Draw feature lets you trace your planned
route and view elevation changes, helping you estimate the difficulty of a
hike or bike ride.
Optional Temperature Sensor: The Fenix is compatible with Garmin's
optional temperature sensor (150TEMPE,
sold separately) that keeps track of how rapidly the temperature is rising or
falling, helping you determine clothing and shelter needs or whether it's time
to turn back.

progress during and after your adventures. Fenix is compatible with Garmin's
heart rate monitor,
