Garmin fēnix 2 is packed with cutting edge training features from Garmin. These include VO2 Max which gives you an estimation of your actual fitness based on your performance and various values of your heart rate. Track changes to your VO2 max to see your fitness gains and to compare with your peers. The fēnix 2 is even able to make a prediction on your race time based on your VO2 Max value. After your training the recovery advisor tells you how much time you need to recover from your last activity.

1. This device is incredibly inaccurate. It seems marginally better if I set it on once per second sampling but not much. I am aware that it is a GPS on my wrist and cannot be perfect but comparing to other devices it's bad. I would even accept it if it was consistently wrong but it varies wildly in both directions.
2. The bluetooth sync starts to fail after a few syncs, customer support told me to reset the watch. I did this, lost all my setup which was annoying and then 3 or 4 runs later it stopped syncing again. (This is something I really wish worked)
3. The initial lock is quite often far from where I start. After that it seems to do some interpolation to bring the lock closer.
4. It sometimes tends to lose the lock mid run, not sure of the conditions for this, initially I thought it was overcast weather but apparently not.
I am sad that I didn't take the reviews on amazon more seriously and put less weight on the dcrainmaker review. I thought that there were a few firmware updates so it would be better. I was wrong.
Its shocking to me that a company like Garmin can release a product so poor and untested and then just leave the community hanging.
I'll say one good thing, I still like the construction over the other watches out there. It feels solid, although, is this possibly the reason for the poor GPS accuracy?
I read the DC Rainmaker review and was really impressed with the amount of functionality crammed into this. I took it for the first run, great. Picks up satellites really quick, loads of configurable data fields to pore over if thats your sort of thing. The special edition positive interface I find so much easier to glance at whilst running than the standard edition.
The more I ran, the more suspicious I became over the distances it was telling me. I was training for 3 marathons earlier in the year and was mainly running on my own so didn't have much to compare with. I read the manual and searched the internet for the optimal settings, enabled WAAS, set sampling to 1 second intervals etc. I was convinced it just needed the correct settings to be set. So for the 1st marathon it recorded 26.58, not bad but not as good as my previous forerunners. 2nd marathon it recorded 26.4 which didn't seem to bad until looking at the "drift". I would share the link from the garmin connect website but it has mysteriously disappeared, read into that what you will, but fortunately I sync to strava as well and it still exists here. https://www.strava.com/activities/293387812 have a look at where the Fenix2 showed me as running. Roll on Edinburgh Marathon, only managed to do 27.7 miles according to the Fenix 2. Again, this activity has disappeared from Garmin connect. But here is the link from Strava, https://www.strava.com/activities/316663209 . Look at the spikes the route develops in the picture. Up to mile 17 it had only added 0.Read more ›
Due to the weather it was a week before I was to get a chance to try it in anger (so to speak). Up to then the Fenix kept very good time and looked rather nice on my wrist.
However, we took Lily for a nice long walk along the seafront and I decided to use the 310XT and my proper step counter as backups. I'm glad I did.
At one point in our walk the Fenix gave a weak and feeble buzz (vibration is short and weak against 310XT). I looked at it and it said we'd done our first mile. Surprised me as I felt it had come along a bit early. Checked on the 310XT and it said 0.8 miles. Not looking good at all.
The next time the Fenix buzzed I just about noticed it. It said 2nd mile done while the XT said 1.5 miles done. It wasn't looking good at all.
I missed buzzes 3 and 4 and I'm not sure they even happened. The vibration alert on the Fenix is inferior to the 310XT.
Long story short. By the time the walk was over the Fenix said we'd done 5.7 miles and the 310XT said 4.4 miles. That's a 25% ish difference! The step count on the Fenix was shy of about 2500 steps compared to my proper step counter.
I saved the file and uploaded it to Garmin Connect. That's when the step count data vanished. It doesn't show up in the History on the watch and it doesn't show up on Garmin Connect!
I checked the route we followed it appears we started some way down a side road to where we actually started.Read more ›
