Garmin Fenix 2 review

The success of the 910XT has overshadowed the impressive package that is the Fenix, perhaps because incarnation no.1 seemed pitched at outdoor enthusiasts. Well, with chapter two’s addition and upgrade of swim, bike and run features, that’s set to change. 

You can track stroke count, distance and even type of stroke, both indoor and out; if your power meter’s ANT+ compatible, it displays your wattage; and, with the addition of the RUN-HRM chest strap, you receive all the dynamics featured on the new 920XT, including race predictor, VO2max and ground contact time. 

It hasn’t forgotten its adventure roots as it can also track hiking, mountaineering, skiing and parachute jumps! The navigation mode will even put your assigned waypoints on a map. As you’d expect, the Fenix 2 links up to Garmin Connect for further analysis.
