Garmin Fenix 2
Hi there, I have noticed with my fenix 2 there does not appear to be any way to show the hundreths when you do a lap or in the stopwatch mode, ie it only show to the closest second. Is there any way to do this?

Do you know if the fenix 2 does golf in the same way the vivoative does. I really like the fenix form but golf would be a deal breaker for me and was hoping to get away with a cheaper Fenix 2 rather than the fenix 3
Hi all,My 310XT get old and I want to purchased a fenix2. There is always available stock of Fenix2 somewhere.Could someone tell me if this watch can store several custom workouts ? On 310xt I can set, store and choose many custom workouts.I checked some videos on internet but any of them can tell me. Same thing for online manuals.And how about routes ? just one route or many ?Thank you
In addition to Bluetooth and ANT+ connectivity, the first fenix featured an onboard altimeter, barometer, thermometer, and compass. With the fenix 2, Garmin has added an accelerometer to the mix. This new sensor brings improved features for runners, stroke tracking for swimmers, and the potential for even more developments in the future.
The fenix 2 can track cross country skiing, downhill skiing, snowboarding, climbing, hiking, navigating, trail running, running, cycling, open-water swimming, pool swimming, gym workouts, and even multisport activities like a triathlon. Each preset transforms the watch like a chameleon into what is essentially a specialized fitness watch for the chosen activity.
After pairing the watch we were ready to dive in, literally. In theory, swimming with the fenix 2 is simple: Select swim, then pool, and press the red start button on the upper right side of the watch. As we learned repeatedly with this complex watch, however, one small mistake during setup can have disastrous consequences on the end results. This happened on our first and second swims, when we entered the wrong pool length. The watch uses this data, along with the built-in accelerometer, to determine the number of laps, stroke, pace, and other metrics. After a 45-minute swim, all our results were botched by this one early error. Lesson learned.
In Open Water swim mode, the fenix 2 uses GPS to keep track of the distance, speed, and times much as it would on a hike, however, it uses the accelerometer to count strokes. We discovered that depending on the stroke we were doing, the fenix 2 would occasionally lose contact with the GPS. For people who train in open water all the time, this could be a major problem. We found the mode more useful for stand-up paddling and surfing. In fact, if the fenix 2 included tide charts in its data mix, it would be one of the best surf watches on the market.
First and foremost, the fenix 2 is a great watch. It looks good from a distance and up close. It feels solid on the wrist, and presents the time, day, and date on a large easy-to-read digital face. It resists water to 50 meters so we could shower, surf, and swim without worrying about it getting dunked. It has an adjustable backlight and contrast controls, customizable alarms, a stop watch, and pretty much all the comforts of a quality, normal watch.

Garmin fenix is an outdoor watch equipped with a GPS receiver. In published specification Garmin declared no support for maps, but watch has basic map and about 20MB free storage. There is possibility to install additional maps with Mapsource or MapInstall. The same is true for similar models, like Garmin tactix, quatix i fenix 2.
Maps are divided into tiles up to 3.5MB size, you can load several selected tiles from PC to device. Easiest way to load maps is to use Mapsource, it allows for selecting tiles and transfer to fenix attached to USB. Mapsource creates file \Garmin\gmapsupp.img on device.
When using BaseCamp loading maps is supported by external program MapInstall. It works similar to Mapsource but creates file with name, that is not recognized by fenix. After transferring files to device you have to manually rename new img file to \Garmin\gmapsupp.img.
