Garmin Epix

The Garmin epix wrist worn GPS is a game-changer in hands-free navigation. This watch packs all the features of high-end handheld GPS, all into a sleek wrist watch. Yes, it can even display Garmin Topo maps on its1.4-inch high-res colour touchscreen.

Just like the new Garmin Fenix 3, this watch has an omnidirectional EXO™ steel antenna with GPS and GLONASS support for a quick fix and stronger signal. With auto-calibrating sensors, multi-sport functionality, and Garmin Connect IQ compatibility, this watch is the most versatile wearable yet.

It’s available with or without Garmin Topo Lite AU/NZ maps preloaded, and both options come with a years subscription to Garmin Birdseye Satellite Imagery.

The advanced fitness features are another absolute standout feature of this device. Epix can record distance, pace, speed, calories burned for a number of different activities. Pair the epix with a HRM-Run heart rate monitor, and gain insights into your estimated VO2 max, provide a recovery check, as well as record cadence, vertical oscillation and ground contact time.

Highlights

  • Waterproof to 50m
  • Battery life of up to 24 hours in GPS mode
  • 50 hours in UltraTrac mode and 16 weeks in watch mode.

We can’t wait to get our hands on one of these and put it through its paces! We’ll first see these watches sometime in March, but keep an eye on our website closer to the release date for a better ETA.
