Expand your training potential with Elevate wrist heart rate technology. Wrist-based heart rate lets you monitor your heart rate 24/7 without wearing a chest strap. Now you can move more freely and still get the stats you need to help improve performance.
Devices with this technology use heart rate to provide calories burned information and quantify the intensity of your fitness activities.
Receive email, text, call and other alerts right on your watch, even if you’re on the trail. fēnix receives the wireless signal from a compatible smartphone and lets you know you have a message by displaying the text on its own screen whenever you're ready to read it.
Other connected features include automatic uploads to the Garmin Connect online fitness community, live tracking, and social media sharing.
Training & Physiological Measurements
fēnix offers a set of running and training features so advanced, it's like training with a coach.
CADENCE: Number of steps per minute
STRIDE LENGTH: Shown in real time and determines a responsive current pace
PERFORMANCE CONDITION: After running for 6-20 minutes, the watch compares your real-time condition to your average fitness levels
TRAINING EFFECT: Estimates oxygen debt of a training session, which helps you assess both the aerobic and anaerobic training benefit after your run or workout
PERFORMANCE WIDGET: Lets you see if you're training effectively by tracking training data, such as VO2 max and anaerobic threshold, and comparing it to recent data
Advanced Running Dynamics & Performance Metrics
When used with a supplemental chest strap (HRM-Run or HRM-Tri), fēnix gives you the power to tap into advanced running dynamics and performance metrics.
VERTICAL OSCILLATION AND RATIO: Degree of “bounce” in your running motion and benefit ratio to stride length
GROUND CONTACT TIME AND BALANCE: How much time your foot is on the ground during the running motion and your running symmetry
LACTATE THRESHOLD: Through analysis of your pace and heart rate, fēnix estimates the point where your muscles start to rapidly fatigue
HRV STRESS TEST: Measures your heart rate variability while standing still, for 3 minutes, to provide you with an estimated stress level. The scale of this is 1 to 100, with low scores indicating lower stress levels
