Combining the best features of Garmin's fitness and outdoor watches, the fenix 2 is the ideal multisport athlete's training partner. Whether running, climbing, riding, hiking, paddling, skiing or swimming, the fenix 2 lets you easily switch between feature sets for easier access to the information you need. Switch from advanced fitness training features like VO2 max, Virtual Partner and recovery advisor to high-sensitivity GPS tracking features like 3-axis compass and TracBack. And with Smart Notification you can stay in touch, even while you're out testing your mettle.
Advanced Fitness Metrics
fenix 2 is packed with training features to tell you about your form and fitness. The first is the VO2 max estimator. When used with a heart rate monitor, fenix 2 crunches data, including your running speed, beats per minute and heart rate variability to estimate the maximum volume of oxygen you can consume per minute. Track changes to your VO2 max to see your fitness gains and to compare with your peers. Other fitness metrics include recovery advisor with a recovery timer and recovery check, plus a Race Predictor, which estimates your ideal finish time based on your current VO2 max number.
Running Dynamics Features
fenix 2 incorporates sophisticated Garmin running watch feedback on your running form by reporting multiple metrics. When used with the HRM-Run monitor, fenix 2 reports your cadence, vertical oscillation and ground contact time. These metrics are called running dynamics, and they effect your running economy.
Swim Profile and Ski-Board Mode
The fenix 2 isn't just for outdoor fitness; special feature sets help swim training and skiing too. Borrowing from the Garmin Swim, fenix 2 tracks your distance, pace, stroke count and more. You just tell fenix 2 the size of the pool you're swimming in and begin your workout. Ski-Board mode puts speed, distance, vertical drop and an automatic run counter (with Auto Pause for the lift line) and more at your fingertips. You can even use your fenix 2 as a glove-friendly remote, via ANT+, for the VIRB and VIRB Elite action cameras.
Navigate Your Way
No other navigator GPS plus ABC (altimeter, barometer and compass) wristwatch offers you the combined training functions and Garmin's leading GPS technology. fenix 2 provides comprehensive navigation and tracking functionalities as well as trip information to guide you on and off the beaten track. Its built-in sensors provide information on heading, elevation and weather changes. It's built to endure the toughest outdoor conditions - and also makes a stylish day-to-day timepiece.
It records a track log creating a GPS "bread crumb trail" as you move. It also allows you to mark waypoints, such as a start/finish line, course check point, or a campsite, vehicle or other point of interest. With fenix 2, you can create and follow routes, mark up to 1,000 waypoints and store up to 10,000 track points.
Plan trips and share adventures with friends and family using BaseCamp. fenix is equipped with both ANT+ and Bluetooth capabilities to wirelessly share tracks, waypoints, routes and geocaches with other compatible Garmin devices or smartphones.
Altimeter, Barometer and Compass
fenix 2 is equipped with ABC sensors to provide relevant real-time information. 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. fenix 2 auto-calibrates its ABC sensors using its GPS receiver and also auto sets the time based on location. For an extremely accurate temperature reading, pair it with Garmin's tempe external temperature sensor.
Built to Endure the Roughest Conditions
fenix 2 combines a strong housing to survive shocks with a curved mineral glass lens to resist scratching. It boasts a large LCD display with a red LED backlight and a robust polyurethane wristband. An alternate fabric wrist strap (with hook-and-loop fastener) is also included with your fenix 2 to accommodate all wrist sizes and so you can strap it on top of a heavy jacket. fenix 2 is water rated to 5 ATM (50 meters) and has a battery life of up to 50 hours in GPS mode (depending on settings) and up to 5 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.
Smart Notification lets you receive emails, texts and alerts right on your watch, even if you're on the trail. fenix 2 receives the wireless signal from your iPhone 4s or later, let's you know you have a message, and displays the full text on its own screen whenever you're ready to read it.
At-A-Glance Training Information
Get quick access to current pace, distance, split times and whether you are ahead or behind your target pace.
Estimates your state of recovery immediately following a run and operates in a countdown mode until the next effort. Recovery can range from 6 to 96 hours.
Provides a real-time assessment of your recovery in the first several minutes of a run.
fenix 2 has a built-in barometric altimeter that provides accurate elevation information so you can keep track of your ascent and descent.
The built-in barometer can help you monitor and predict weather changes by showing you short-term changes in the barometric air pressure. If the barometric pressure begins a steady decline, this could be a warning of an impending storm.
fenix 2 includes a 3-axis electronic compass that keeps your bearing whether you're moving or not. Sight a bearing and be confident that fenix 2 will keep you headed toward your goal.
You can gain insight into temperature trends from the built-in temperature sensor. Knowing how rapidly the temperature is rising or falling can help you determine clothing and shelter needs or whether it's time to turn back.
Wireless Unit-to-unit Communication
Easily share tracks, waypoints, routes and paperless geocaches wirelessly with other compatible Garmin GPS units and smartphones. fenix 2 is equipped with both ANT+ capabilities and Bluetooth technology. That means can also pair fenix with several external devices, such as Garmin's temperature sensor, heart rate monitor and speed/cadence bike sensor.
Real-time performance data such as time, distance, pace, calories, speed, lap data, and heart rate
When paired with heart rate monitor, fenix 2 calculates advanced features like recovery advisor with recovery time and recovery check, race predictor which estimates your ideal finish time, and VO2 max estimate (body's maximal oxygen consumption) to improve your performance
When paired with HRM-Run monitor, fenix 2 provides feedback on running form by measuring cadence (number of steps per minute), vertical oscillation (bounce in your running motion), and ground contact time (amount of time your foot spends on the ground while running)
Built-in accelerometer tracks distance and pace when indoors
Ski-Board mode measures 3D speed and distance, time, vertical drop, total runs, auto pause, auto run detection, plus features ski specific data pages, history of runs, performance data, and an included fabric extender strap ideal for wearing the fenix 2 over a heavy jacket
Indoor and outdoor swim modes that record stroke count, intervals, distance, pace, and time. For pool swimming, also counts lengths, detects stroke type, and computes the user's SWOLF score (adds the time and number of strokes it takes to swim a pool length to help gauge efficiency)
Allows you to set time, distance or speed goals and then compete against a running/cyclist icon that appears on your screen
Automatically uploads data wirelessly to Garmin Connect, LiveTrack and social media (using Garmin Connect Mobile app on smartphone), plus features Smart Notification so you can receive emails, texts and alerts directly on your fenix 2 watch
