I just purchased a Fenix 2 for getting myself to do some hiking trips in order to get in better shape. A nice gadget would help motivate me, I guess. 🙂
I chose the Fenix 2 as I got a nice deal on it and it is a watch that I can actually use from day to day as well.
I have added some local maps to it, and allthough its not a very high resolution screen it is cool just to have it on the watch. 😉
I downloaded maps free from www.gmaptool.eu and uploaded the sections I needed to the watch’s internal RAM using MapSource. Pretty straight forward.
This watch also stay connected to my phone during workout sessions, so I can see text messages, emails, who is calling me and even messages from Facebook. Yeah, not for everyones taste – I know. But a nice gadgety thing.
Oh, by the way. I already really like the fact that the time is adjusted from the GPS satelites. So the watch is in the exact same second as my desktop radio controlled watch. How cool is that?? 😉
I will do some updates later with new findings and experiences with this thing.
