Garmin Epix is an innovative device, that is well-packed with all the needed features that you are looking for in a tiny, lightweight GPS device. Now you can forget all the landmarks, game trails, streams and class four roads that you have been memorizing for years and years. All of that is easily accessible in a Epix mapping watch with TOPO U.S. 100K maps, which definitely makes the entire package redundant. You simply wear the Epix on your wrist and it also tells you the time, but… but, it is so much more than just a regular watch. It actually is easier to call it just a watch, but in reality, it is a wearable touchscreen navigation computer, which comes with pre-loaded worldwide shaded relief basemap, TOPO U.S. 100K maps, and a subscription to BirdsEye Satellite Imagery, which lets you to move, zoom in and out and analyze all kinds of maps in order to easily find out where you are located. Garmin Epix features a navigational ability that is powered by its GPS and GLONASS satellite navigation systems, embedded in a stainless-steel housing in order to provide you with a highly precise worldwide location services as well as a number of interval settings in order to let you optimize updates with battery life, which is more than enough of 24 hours in GPS mode, 50 hours in UltraTrac mode, and up to 4 months in watch mode. But, the latter is less likely to be used, because this device is not for that purpose. It has an ability to get you to and from secret hunting, fishing, camping and hiking spots, also it can display the exact moving speed of yours, how long the particular activity is taking, how many calories you are burning, what is your elevation, how the weather is changing, what direction you are moving in, and also it can let you map and re-trace routes and paths. This is certainly useful in the deep backcountry, and also it is ideal training tracker for cyclists, runners, endurance athletes, swimmers, triathletes, skiers, snowboarders and so on. It has an ability to sync wirelessly with other electronic devices, so you can analyze the results and design a training plan at your convenience, and also it is equipped with an USB hookup for super-fast, and reliable recharging and data transfer. If you prefer taking social media with you at all times, you can set the Epix up to display text messages, phone calls, email alerts, and document your adventures by syncing it with a Garmin VIRB action camera. Certainly, Garmin Epix has a lot more to offer than explained here, but I did not want to bother you with the too long review. This particular product is highly recommended in terms of its affordability, durability and innovative features.
