  • Conclusion: On our test roster, the Fenix is most comparable to the Suunto Ambit 2 and our Editors' Choice Suunto Ambit 2 S . The Fenix and Ambit 2 are direct competitors. The Ambit 2S is simply a smaller and slightly less functional version of the Ambit 2.

  • Summary: If you want OS mapping on your GPS, the Fenix is a non-starter, but for easy to use, portable tracking and basic navigation of pre-loaded routes it's brilliant and has the huge advantage of being on your wrist, so it's alway available.
  • Pros: Compact, comfortable, relatively easy to use, wireless interface with other units, super versatile. Garmin software compatibility.
  • Cons: Minimalist mapping, occasional misting inside unit.
