One can go in extend to fulfill their dream or if it’s about fitness than he or she can do anything (only if one is damn serious). For fitness training and to know all the tricks and terms the first thing one does is go to the gym or who cannot afford they do lots of recharge on that.

Not everyone can afford to buy different watch for different activities like if you are a regular outdoorsy. If someone can afford so still will not like to have so many watches laying on their wardrobe’s drawer as it’s really a pain. All this pain has been grabbed by the Garmin Fenix 2 as it is known as the ‘one in all’ or ‘one watch to rule them all’.Garmin Company has already killed it with their GPS lately.

Design of the Garmin Fenix 2

Garmin Fenix 2 Overview

Garmin Fenix 2 Overview

Some describe this Garmin Fenix 2 as a big this is because it weighs at a cool 3 ounces. This is round and thick and looks a miniature hockey puck with the wrist straps. Garmin Fenix 2 can work as a weapon and I am saying so because a puck to someone’s face, it will give a black eye or one may lost tooth. So better not to puck to someone’s face as a fun. As the strap is of rubber, it will help to stabilize the watch’s heft. It can also spread pressure onto your wrist more evenly. In perspective to physical hardware, it’s more like the original Fenix. Like the tweak color of the buttons, the hardware is also same on the outside. The change has been made in the button functionality where the up button is now the start/down button and the down button is where the back button was then. It has sense and you will understand when you will use it.

Backlight and others

Color of the Garmin Fenix 2’s backlight is deep red, though it will not give as bright light as the Indigo style backlight. But it evenly gives light and has, the less prone and will not screw your night vision when you are camping or running at night which is a very important feature.

You can charge your Garmin Fenix 2 via a USB cable which has the proprietary docking clip on the end of the USB cable. This Garmin Fenix 2’s USB cable, you can upload your data and this clip has some fidgeting just to have the proper connection. Garmin Fenix 2 is totally waterproof to 164 feet and you would probably like to upload your data via iOS or with Android app.

ABC Function for Garmin Fenix2

The full form of an ABC is Altimeter-Barometer-Compass. This is a dual-axis and I can read from any angle of the watch and the accuracy is just something I love. This ABC of the Garmin Fenix 2 will give you much more confidence than the any other unreliable one Suunto put in the core. Garmin Fenix 2 has come up with the pre-calibrated compass in the factory and it has given the exact reading from any angle every time. It’s a digital compass example, which gives me confident reasonably. Though no one can beat the old fashioned plate compass and one should always use as primary in term of navigation. But the compass reading of the Garmin Fenix 2 is very impressive.

The Alti-baro measures both the barometric and altitude pressure with the use of air pressure. For the accurate readings Garmin Fenix 2 needs to know the current altitude or need to tell the air pressure at the sea level. Higher the level you go the air pressure becomes lower. Normally for the correct altitude, it is easy to calibrate as the maps, iPhone apps and GPS are the many ways to determine. In this Garmin Fenix 2 you set the calibrated altitude both manually or automatically through the GPS while you are doing your activities. For calibrating via GPS, there are two options: at the start or continuously.


  • Buttons of the Garmin Fenix 2 are easy to navigate via different features and menus.
  • ​Feature modes are great and you would be able to customize heavily.
