  • 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. Between all these full-function devices, the Suuntos are slightly more polished in design and function. However, the difference is pretty minor.

  • Conclusion: Smartphones are now the biggest single competitors for the wrist-based timepiece in general and for GPS devices specifically. The questions we found ourselves asking while testing this watch was “Does this do anything that a smartphone can’t do a whole lot cheaper?” In an area of solid cell service it is hard for any battery powered device to compete with a high resolution, full-color display with real-time Google maps plotting a course over a background of satellite...
  • Pros: Stylish, sophisticated yet rugged design, Huge display reads well during serious activity, Solid GPS tracking options, ANT+ and Bluetooth communication, Cadence and speed capture for cyclists, Good battery life, Waterproof to 50 meters
  • Cons: Menu layout is confusing and difficult to navigate, Profiles and data pages are complicated to set up, No swimming or snowboard/ski profile, Full manual is only available online, Documentation lacks in detail

  • Excerpt: The good folks who freed us from mapping out runs have released their latest GPS adventure watch, the Garmin Fenix ($399) . Sporting staples such as GPS, HRM pairing, and distance tracking, along with few others like ABC (altimeter, barometer, and compass) and cadence counting, it has the trappings of a winner. But the Fenix also includes a few new tricks that will appeal to the data geek in all of us.

  • Excerpt: Mielőtt elárasztják a világot a színes kijelzős, Wi-Fi-s, androidos és iOS-es karórák, fontosnak gondoltuk megvizsgálni, hogy hol jár most a hordható informatika piaca. A vizsgálathoz nem is kell messzire menni, a Garmin jól ismert név a sportolók és utazók számára fejlesztett navigációs- és edzéspartner-eszközei révén.

Test: Garmin Fenix (GPS-Uhr)

CHIP Online
26 March 2013
  • Excerpt: Die Garmin Fenix ist mit 82 Gramm eine der schwersten Uhren in unserem Test und landet auf Platz 7, obwohl auch der offizielle Nachfolger schon da ist. Dafür gibt's Ausstattung satt. Ein barometrischer Höhenmesser und Kartennavigation machen die GPS-Uhr vor allem für Bergbegeisterte interessant. Lobenswert ist die starke Akkulaufzeit von bis zu 50 Stunden mit eingeschaltetem GPS.
  • Pros: Barometrischer Höhenmesser, Kartennavigation, Lange Akkulaufzeit
  • Cons: Kein Intervalltimer, Keine Trainingsbewertung, Klobige Bauweise
