Garmin signals its entrance into the outdoors GPS watch segment with the fēnix. Despite its annoying punctuation and emphasis baggage, the watch appears to be a fully featured and functional wrist top for the outdoors set. More than just a watch with a GPS chip, Garmin sees the fēnix as a hands-free navigation solution. Unlike its existing GPS sports watches, the Fenix (we've humored Garmin long enough) offers a more robust feature set that will navigate you into and out of the wild.
The Fenix will compete with a very select few navigation-capable watches (the Suunto Ambit is the only one that comes to mind) for the hearts, minds and wrists of hikers, mountaineers, mountain bikers, backcountry skiers and other outdoorsy folk.
