Garmin Fenix 2 review

Fenix 2

Garmin Fenix 2

If you consider yourself to be a multifaceted athlete, that is you jog, swim, snowboard or perform just about any outdoor activity, the Garmin Fenix 2 is the watch for you! The Fenix 2 is Garmin’s much improved version over its predecessor, the first generation Fenix released in 2012. The original Fenix was geared towards running and hiking related activities, whereas the Fenix 2 is a full fledge multi sport watch that is a truly exemplary gadget to say the least.
The Fenix 2 as claimed by Garmin is a full featured training watch and that’s just about how we’d describe it too. Considering that it is designed for just about any activity, it is outfitted with a ton of features such as an accelerometer, 3-axis compass, ANT+ and Bluetooth radios, a high sensitivity GPS radio, barometer, altimeter and even an integrated thermometer. The biggest problem or inconvenience rather that most outdoor athletes are faced with is having a separate watch or even a couple multi sport watches for each activity. But the Gamin Fenix (pronounced Phoenix just like the US State) resolves this issue nicely and is intended to be the Jack of all Trades.

Unboxing the Garmin Fenix 2

The Fenix 2 can be ordered in two different packages: one with just the watch and one with the watch and the HRM-RUN heart strap. When paired with the Fenix 2, the HRM-RUN heart strap is able to measure ground contact time, vertical oscillation (measures how high you bounce when you run) and cadence among others. So if you train at a very high level or simply require detailed data such as this, the Fenix 2 multi sport training GPS bundle is a recommended buy. Getting back to the unboxing, the package of the Garmin Fenix 2 is a visual treat in itself, and is divided into 3 sections, two of which contain the device and accessories. Continue reading

Garmin GPS Driving Recorder GDR45 review

Garmin Driving Recorder GDR45

Garmin Driving Recorder GDR45

Until a few months, dash cameras were just fancy gadgets designed to record footage when you drive, but Garmin takes it one step further with the GDR45 GPS Driving recorder. The compact device mounts onto any car’s windshield, and not only allows you to capture what your windshield sees in HD quality, but also serves as a data recorder with GPS technology that records precise coordinates, speed, direction and other information that is overlaid on the video.
4GB microSD can be used for the Garmin GDR45 driving recorder, this will allow for storing up to 40 minutes of footage. It continues to record and overwrites the old footage, but you can always add a 32GB memory card to capture and store more without overwriting. You can also save more footage on the included 4GB memory card by switching from 1080p recording to 720p video.
