UPDATE: Read my hands on review of the Garmin fenix.
I’ve managed to get my hands on a Garmin fenix, the new backcountry sportswatch, and I’ve got a few pics to share. The fenix is already shipping from GPS City and REI; it looks like Amazon won’t have it for a few weeks yet.
On my first trip out, I just wanted to get a feel for it, but I did verify that it has advanced track navigation (the top field in the image above shows distance to the next waypoint along the track). The image below shows the active route and compass screens.
I also wanted to try out geocaching with the fenix, and you can see from the shots below that it does indeed have paperless geocaching.
The images below show the altimeter and temperature sensor screens (I had the tempe wireless temperature sensor connected).
I apologize for the image quality; there does not appear to be a built in screenshot mechanism and I was in alternating light and dark conditions.
The bad news is that I’ll only have the fenix for a couple of weeks, so the review may not be as in-depth as usual. The good news is, you’ll see my review in just a couple of weeks! Regardless, I’ll have lots more details about customization options, etc. Please let me know below if there is anything in particular you want to see covered in the review and I’ll try to work it in.
