Combining the best features of our fitness and outdoor watches, the fēnix 2 is the ideal multisport athlete?s training partner. Whether running, climbing, riding, hiking, paddling, skiing or swimming, the fēnix 2 lets you easily switch between feature sets for easier access to the information you need. Switch from advanced fitness training features like VO2 max, Virtual Partner and recovery advisor to high-sensitivity GPS tracking features like 3-axis compass and TracBackÂ®. And with Smart Notification you can stay in touch, even while you?re out testing your mettle. Advanced Fitness Metrics fēnix 2 is packed with training features to tell you about your form and fitness. The first is the VO2 max estimator. When used with a heart rate monitorÂ¹, fēnix 2 crunches data, including your running speed, beats per minute and heart rate variability to estimate the maximum volume of oxygen you can consume per minute. Track changes to your VO2 max to see your fitness gains and to compare with your peers. Other fitness metrics include recovery advisor with a recovery timer and recovery check, plus a Race Predictor, which estimates your ideal finish time based on your current VO2 max number. Running Dynamics Features fēnix 2 incorporates sophisticated Garmin running watch feedback on your running form by reporting multiple metrics. When used with the HRM-Run monitorÂ¹, fēnix 2 reports your cadence, vertical oscillation and ground contact time. These metrics are called running dynamics, and they effect your running economy. Swim Profile and Ski-Board Mode The fēnix 2 isn?t just for outdoor fitness; special feature sets help swim training and skiing too. Borrowing from the Garmin Swimâ¢, fēnix 2 tracks your distance, pace, stroke count and more. You just tell fēnix 2 the size of the pool you?re swimming in and begin your workout. Ski-Board mode puts speed, distance, vertical drop and an automatic run counter (with Auto Pause for the lift line) and more at your fingertips. You can even use your fēnix 2 as a glove-friendly remote, via ANT+â¢, for the VIRBâ¢ and VIRB Elite action cameras.
