Advanced Fitness Metrics
fēnix 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, fēnix 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 in order to compare to 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
fēnix 2 incorporates sophisticated Garmin running watch feedback on your running form by reporting multiple metrics. When used with the HRM-Run monitor¹, fēnix 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 fēnix 2 isn’t just for outdoor fitness; special feature sets help swim training and skiing too. Borrowing from the Garmin Swim™, fēnix 2 tracks your distance, pace, stroke count and more. You just tell fēnix 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 fēnix 2 as a glove-friendly remote, via ANT+®, for the VIRB® and VIRB Elite action cameras.
Navigate Your Way
No other navigator GPS+ABC wristwatch offers you the combined training functions and our leading GPS technology. fēnix 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 checkpoint, or a campsite, vehicle or other point of interest. With fēnix 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. fēnix is equipped with both ANT capabilities and Bluetooth® to wirelessly share tracks, waypoints, routes and geocaches with other compatible Garmin devices or smartphones.
Altimeter, Barometer and Compass
fēnix 2 is equipped with ABC sensors (altimeter, barometer and compass) 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.
fēnix 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 our tempe™ external temperature sensor.
Built to Endure the Roughest Conditions
fēnix 2 combines a steel reinforced thermoplastic housing to help it survive shocks with a protective curved mineral glass lens to resist scratching. It boasts a crisp high contrast LCD display with a red LED backlight and a robust red polyurethane wristband. An alternate fabric wrist strap (with hook-and-loop fastener) is also included with your fēnix 2 so you can strap it on top of a heavy jacket. fēnix 2 has a water-rating of 5 ATM (50 metres)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.
Rugged and attractive, the fēnix 2 is also a highly accurate timepiece that can be worn every day. It includes settings for alarms, chimes and vibration alerts.
