Extensive Navigation Features
Our new, high-sensitivity, EXO antenna technology means better satellite signal strength and faster time to your first fix. epix uses HotFix® to access both GPS and GLONASS satellites for noticeably quicker positioning than GPS alone. Once the fix is made, you have access to a full menu of navigation features, including advanced track recording, track navigation, TracBack®, waypoint and coordinate navigation, Sight'n Go and point-by-point routing.
Altimeter, Barometer and Compass
epix is equipped with auto-calibrating ABC sensors to provide relevant real-time information. The built-in altimeter provides elevation data to accurately monitor ascent and descent, while the barometer can be used to predict weather changes by showing short-term trends in air pressure. The 3-axis electronic compass keeps your bearing whether you’re moving or not.
A Full-featured Fitness Training Watch
No need to change watches between adventures. epix gives you easy/quick access to Garmins full blown fitness training feature sets, helping you get ready for your next one. With preloaded profiles such as running, cycling, swimming, skiing, trail running and indoor training is not only a navigator on the wrist, but also an intelligent training partner. During training, it shows you distance, pace, speed, calories burned, and more. If you pair it with a HRM Run heart rate monitor belt¹, it determines the VO2max and gives you a recommendation for the optimal recovery time after your workout. Motion sensors in clock and chest strap provide additional data and enable the epix for a running style analysis. So it gives you feedback on pace, ground contact time and vertical movement, helping to make your style of running more efficiently.
The skiing mode also counts the number of your runs (with auto pause feature if you are waiting for the ski-lift) and more.
The epix colour mapping watch features a rugged design with mineral glass lens and rugged PVD-coated surfaces. With a water rating of 50 meters, epix is designed to withstand some of the roughest conditions you’ll encounter. It’s also an auto-calibrated timepiece that both helps convey you to point B, and convey to others how serious you are about the outdoors.
epix displays smart notifications from your compatible Bluetooth® device² so you never miss a text, email or notification, unless you want to. And, with Garmin Connect
and Connect IQ you’ll be connected to a whole community of people who love the outdoors as much as you do and to outdoor app developers building smart apps specially for epix. With LiveTrack, others can track where you are (within a coverage area) through Garmin Connect on your smartphone.
epix uses the Connect IQ platform for specialised software so you can personalise your watch with customised apps, widgets, data fields and unique watch faces
that make your Garmin smartwatch even smarter.
