Garmin fenix is the first GPS navigator + ABC (Altimeter, Barometer & Compass) wristwatch to include comprehensive Garmin GPS navigation. Developed together with professional mountain guides and designed for the serious expeditionist and outdoor enthusiast, fenix is the hands-free outdoor navigation tool that guides you with confidence through demanding mountain environments, allowing you to make your own way to the summit and back to the safety of a mountain shelter. With self-calibrating ABC sensors and Garmin quality navigation features such as TracBack it provides a new standard for navigation in mountain environments.
You can create and follow routes and mark up to 1,000 waypoints which you can navigate with ease. In addition fenix can store up to 10,000 track points. You can also share data wirelessly with other compatible Garmin GPS units and smartphones. Naturally, as a navigating GPS+ABC watch, it also includes altimeter, barometer, 3-axis electronic compass and temperature sensor. Rugged, stylish and waterproof to 50m it's as comfortable for everyday wear in the inner city as it is off the beaten path, conquering mountains or having great adventures.
Navigation by Garmin
fenix: Navigate with fenix
fenix tracks where you have been, but it can also guide you into the wilderness and, more importantly, guide you back out again.
It records a track log, creating a GPS 'bread crumb trail' as you move. It also allows you to mark waypoints, such as your vehicle location, safety shelter, great viewpoints and other POIs (points of interest). With fenix, you can create and follow routes, mark up to 1,000 waypoints and store up to 10,000 track points. You even can create your trip data on BaseCamp, the free desktop trip-planning software from Garmin. Plan your trip at home, download all data to fenix and follow the navigation arrow to waypoints or the clearly visible track line to your destination. Use TracBack to show you the way home.
fenix: Know exactly where you are
The fenix is also a highly accurate timepiece that can be worn every day. It includes settings for alarms, chimes and vibration alerts. It also functions as a timer, stopwatch and world clock.
fenix has a built-in barometric altimeter that provides accurate elevation information along your way. This enables you to keep track of your ascent and descent, so you always know how high you climb from base to summit. With automatic calibration, altimeter accuracy is improved thanks to fenix continuously monitoring and recalibrating the sensor. So you will always know how far you have to climb until you reach your destination.
The built-in barometer can help you monitor and predict weather changes by showing you short-term changes in the barometric air pressure. As an example, if the barometric pressure begins a steady decline, this is an indication for an impending storm.
fenix: With a built-in barometer
fenix includes a 3-axis electronic compass that keeps your bearing in any position and also whether you're moving or not. Sight a bearing and be confident fenix will keep you headed toward your goal. The compass sensor can alternatively be set to automatic calibration ensuring you always hit your destination point.
Similar to Garmin's GPS running watches, fenix provides comprehensive real-time performance monitoring for athletes such as trail runners and ski mountaineers. With lap and autolap function and important performance data e.g. distance, vertical speed and pace, ambitious mountaineers can keep track of their progress during their outdoor training or other fitness activities. fenix is also compatible with Garmin's optional premium heart rate monitor for heart rate information or with a speed/cadence sensor for distance, speed and cadence while on a bike. All displayed data fields are fully customisable right off the wrist.
Accurate Temperature / tempe
You can gain insight into temperature trends from the built-in temperature sensor. Tempe is Garmin's ANT+ temperature sensor which gives you precise ambient temperature reading without influence of body temperature. Knowing how rapidly the temperature is rising or falling can help you determine clothing and shelter needs, and whether it's time to turn back.
Wireless Unit-to-unit Communication
You can easily share tracks, waypoints, routes and paperless geocaches wirelessly with other compatible Garmin GPS units and smartphones*. fenix is equipped with both ANT+ capabilities and Bluetooth technology.
