Garmin Fenix GPS Watch4It is excellent for kayaking and Where I use it as a backup for my GPS position should my Garmin dedicated GPS fail. There are better watches but none better that have gps. Instructions are poor but the unit is fairly intuitive. On the water it is my go to watch. One big negative is battery runs down fast in gps mode so best to use in emergencies

I would recommend to a friend
awesome watch, no garmin connect support3this watch has everything an outdoor sport enthusiast would want. its tough, precise, great gps, awesome battery life. tracking is crisp on the water as well. water proof and not too bulky. but if you ride mountain bikes, kayak or white water kayak, track and trail run. forget about garmin connect. you can't upload training sessions.
