I own several Garmin GPS units and they are all great but the one I like best is my wrist-worn Foretrex 401. The Foretrex line is pretty compact but they are still much larger than a typical wrist watch and the only way it could be better is if it was just a bit smaller. Well, it appears that Garmin agrees because they have announced the new wrist-worn fenix GPS.
The fenix (the lack of capitalization in the name is driving me nuts) is just as fully spec’d as the Foretrex 401, in fact, it is actually a bit more feature rich. It boasts lighter weight, a basemap, more onboard storage, a larger tracklog, more routes, more waypoints, a better compass, and other features over the Foretrex 401. It has more functionality packed into a smaller body.
On paper, the fenix looks pretty amazing. Check it out at Garmin.com.
