>Gears and Wears>GARMIN FENIX 2 !
Hey - I read the review (ok- I still have a couple pages to finish) - But the new Garmin Fenix 2 seems almost perfect for me! $400 is still steep, but this watch offers a lot of cool features. Probably a couple years before other watches catch up. Not sure when I will make the plunge, but this watch is so far ahead of the pack, it is the only one I am considering for my next watch.
Some things Id like to have in my Ideal watch -
RUN SAFE. Barefoot 1st: 6/9/13. PR: 5k=22:50 10k=47:46 HM 1:51. FM 4:28
Sept /27 Sat. 9am (scheduling conflict) Hogsback HM -
October 11 Sat 8am Hartford Marathon.
November 15 Sat 12:30pm- Spartan Race with DW in Fenway
Jan 1 Gordys First Race. 10k. Jan 18 Disneyland Star Wars HM 5:30am
I have had a Fenix 2 since the very first week they became available and it does do a lot of cool stuff that I thought I would use. I probably used it for 1,000 or so of the 1,500 miles I have run for the year, but now I am using my FR15 for running and the Fenix 2 has been relegated to biking and swimming (neither of which I do that much of). If you like to use a HR monitor at all then forget about the BT features. I don't neccessarily regret the purchase, but my old 305 had a rock solid GPS track and did HRM and the FR15 that I have been using is nice because it is so much smaller (and cheaper). Feel free to message me if you have any questions.
