it is still a solid watch and has some very niche features for the hiker and camper and can somewhat be used on day to day basis

Summary: Got the watch in preparating to take camping & hiking to the next level and do it consistently. I have yet to camp with this and have been using it on a daily basis. Find that it is rather large which isn't surprising considering what it is. Pictures do it no justice and is bigger.
Summary: Like so many things in my life, this watch is perfect for me, but I don't know if I could recommend it for anyone else. I was looking for a watch that could do a few things. Primarily I was interested in a training watch that synced up with a heart rate sensor, but also I was interested in something...
Summary: The device is usefull for a peson who likes all sport activites. I do cycling, ultra runnig, triathlon, mountainering, backcountry skiing and I cannot imagine training whitout this watches. They have helped me to fing a nice hidden trails wchich I would never discovered with a map only.

Summary: The replacement you folks sent appears to be working. Haven't used all the features, as yet, but what I have tried seems to work. Once you get familiar with the switch functions it gets easier.
Summary: Watch (Great): I've been researching this watch and the Suunto Ambit heavily. Garmin won in the end because it had the features I needed the most and was $100 cheaper. I've now put the watch to use for 2 months and am very, very happy with it.
After 7 camping trips, here is my update and ovrall impression of the fenix.

Summary: This is my initial review. Just got this watch as a replacement for my Pulsar pq2013 (the timer has stopped working). I'm still working through the different elements of the watch and hoping to use it on my camping and hiking trips. The ABC elements are okay but not 100% accurate.
Summary: Very precise. It gives you all data you need when doing sports in the wild. Good for trail running / cycling / hiking. It can also be used for city running, though it may not be so complete as an specially dedicated watch like top Forerunner devices. Good construction quality.
