Great watch

shane knight, OutdoorsMagic
27 September 2013
  • Summary: I sold my ambit one watch to buy the fenix as I was a little put out by sunnto not doing any more updates on ambit one. I am very glad I did as I wanted a outdoor watch that I could use for running as well.
  • Pros: GPS altitude,looks like a watch barometer works very well
  • Cons: Wish I could set the watch up on a PC, can sometimes take a while to pick up satellites

Battery life short

Edwin E Jones Jr, Amazon

  • Summary: When GPS is on, the battery needs runs down in what seems to be 6-8 hrs. Especially if hiking, I don't think I could count on keeping it on and marking the trail, which is one of the reasons I bought this watch. Still learning all activity functions, so maybe I am missing something.

Good watch, condensation problem

Bob M, Amazon
26 July 2013
  • Summary: The watch itself is good quality and the various features are fairly straightforward. The available documentation is a bit lacking as far as setting up the screens and what each of the customization items specifically refers to. The available documenation at the Garmin site needs to be improved.

nice but bulky

ZENMTN, Amazon
18 July 2013
  • Summary: I bought this watch hoping to replace my other Garmin devices as well as my everyday wrist watch. I planned to be able to use it for swimming, kayaking, biking, hiking and running. Sorry to say that it falls short in most of these in one way or another.

Great watch but...

Marcelo, Amazon
18 July 2013
  • Summary: Great watch, but the fact that you cannot upload garmin maps on due to insufficient memory makes it less useful than advertised. Yes you can still add maps from a 3rd party map designer, but it can be s bit confusing

Very complex, nice band.

Mike, Amazon
18 July 2013
  • Summary: After many hours of trying to learn this watch I just get more confused. The battery life isn't as lengthy as advertised also. The band however is very nice.

do not buy if you are into sports!!

william j sell, Amazon
18 July 2013
  • Summary: All in all, there are a lot of nice features with this watch, but there are some very strange and frustrating aspects to the watch. Time to locate satellites was very inconsistent, and on some of my runs I literally gave up.

Garmin Fenix-So so watch & poor customer service

Timothy Smith, Amazon
18 July 2013
  • Summary: I've been disappointed in my Fenix. In the three weeks I've had it it has locked up twice and taken several hours to unlock. It appears when you begin to move to quickly thru commands the processor becomes bogged down and takes an extended time to recover.

Works...but not well enough.

Austin K. Lee, Amazon
18 July 2013
  • Summary: I really wanted to like this product, but unfortunately it just didn't meet my needs. I am a bit of a weather buff and liked the barometer and temperature function of the watch. However, after an email exchange with the manufacturer I learned that the watch doesn't continually monitor temperature.

Brian Walter, Amazon

  • Summary: Nice watch, but released before it was ready to be I think. The firmware updates have improved it tremendously. It does not have the battery life promised though which is unfortunate since that was the reason I bought it.
