  • Summary: I bought this watch a year ago to make sure I won't get lost in Alaska. At the beginning it worked, but always had different distance on it than the signs says on the trails - but I was more to believe the signs are not perfect. After 8 month of usage it started act weird. Like turn off when the alarm rings - so I had some serious run to catch things before I realized what happens -, next sign was it took minutes to find satellites, finally the battery died in an hour.

Fenix Condensation Problem

Ronald R. Riesbeck "Ron", Amazon
20 October 2013
  • Summary: I have serial number 67.000+. I just took it out for a 3 hour bike ride in 45`f weather. Watch was on my wrist. I stopped for a 5 minute water break and I went to satellite view to see how WAAS was doing. It was doing very well at 9 feet accuracy. I continued to watch satellite number 51 as it swapped with number 46 or 48. I stopped satellite view and went on my way.

Bad experience

lhlemos, Ebay

  • Summary: I have purchased in your online store the Garmin Watch Fenix and I received it 20 days ago. Last Saturday I went up a mountain in Rio de Janeiro. In the morning, upon awakening, the watch was evaporating water inside of the glass. In addition, today I went to use the timer when I tried to stop by pressing the return button, the watch just died! The display does not appear any more.

Keeps fogging up - unresolved issue

Georg, Amazon
4 March 2013
  • Summary: Bought the fenix in October 2102. Right from the start the unit kept fogging up whenever there was a change in temperature. Sent it back to Garmin in January. According to rumors (there is still no official statement by Garmin about the fogging-up-issue although many users are affected - see Garmin forums!) they have solved the issue. I received my replacement on Friday last week. Went on a skitour on Sunday. When I started the fenix was underneath my jacket's sleeve.

Setzt neue Maßstäbe für Unzuverlässigkeit

Andreas Oesterhelt, Amazon
26 January 2014
  • Summary: In kurzen Laufklamotten in der Kälte warten, bis der GPS-Fix nach Minuten da ist (oder auch gar nicht)? Mitten im Lauf den Kilometerton vermissen und beim Blick auf die Uhr nur den Splashcreen sehen? Boot-Orgien zuschauen, die sich nicht abbrechen lassen, bis der Akku leer ist? Termin verpassen, weil Die Uhr sich nachts totgebootet hat und deshalb nicht weckt? Lustige Testbilder und Debugausgaben bestaunen? Immer wieder die Firmware updaten in der (vergeblichen!

  • Summary: meine erste Fenix hat nach 6 Wochen den Geist aufgegeben (Akku kaputt), der 1. Garantietausch hat's 4 Wochen getan, meine dritte Fenix ließ sich bereits nach 2 Wochen nicht mehr starten... Ich hab noch eine 910XT von Garmin die bekommt von mir 5 Sterne, aber die Fenix geht garnicht...

Beim Ersten Tragen Schrott

clamile, Amazon
27 December 2013
  • Summary: Es hätte so schön sein können, aber meine ersten Erfahrungen mit dieser Uhr haben mir mehr Ärger als Freude bereitet. Die Uhr kommt chic verpackt an. Mein Mann hat sie gleich in Beschlag genommen und hat sich mit den Grundfunktionen vertraut gemacht. Zum ersten Testen hat er sie umgebunden und mich auf dem Einkaufsbummel begleitet. Gut dafür braucht man keine GPS-Uhr aber Mann hat Zeit genug zwischendurch zu testen und Berge gibt es hier nicht.
