Get detailed GPS/GLONASS mapping and multi-sport tracking capabilities with the epix Watch from Garmin. The epix features a 1.4" color touchscreen display with fingertip pan/swipe access to device functions and all of its detailed maps, including the built-in worldwide shaded relief basemap, which simulates the shadow thrown upon a raised map area. The epix also includes a 1-year BirdsEye Satellite Imagery subscription, which enables you to transfer high-resolution satellite imagery to your device. Additionally, the epix is equipped with 8GB of built-in memory, so you can load up on additional maps and services, such as City Navigator and BlueChart g2.
The epix features the same EXO antenna technology popularized in Garmin's fenix 3. This stainless steel receiver is integrated into the epix's design and works as a powerful antenna for GPS and GLONASS satellite signals. It is designed to give you better satellite strength and quicker position fix than standalone GPS. Once your first signal fix is acquired, the epix provides a host of navigation features, such as advanced track recording, point-by-point routing, waypoint navigation, and more to help you find your way.
In addition to its mapping and navigation functionality, the epix is also a full-featured training and fitness watch. You can use the epix as a step counter and activity tracker, a training device for running, cycling, and swimming, and to record data from your ski and snowboard runs. For advanced fitness data tracking, the epix is compatible with optional Garmin sensors, such as a heart rate monitor, speed/cadence sensor, and more.
Because it's an outdoor watch, the epix is designed to be rugged and durable. It features a mineral glass lens and PVD-coated surfaces, so the finish won't wear off and overall wear will be greatly reduced. Depending on the mode it's in, the epix's battery can last from 50 hours up to 16 weeks on a full charge. Additionally, the epix has a certified water rating of 5 ATM, which means it can withstand the atmospheric pressure equivalent to a depth of 164' below water.
