It’s that time of year again where every active body is on the move! It’s about time to replace your old Garmin, right? On a market with so many to choose from, that can be a bit difficult. Which should you choose from and how can you choose it? What is an all around good buy for different sports and different athletic adventures? Let’s start you on the right track by narrowing it down to two Garmin multisport watches. The Garmin Fenix 2 Vs 910XT. Both are equal in price, so which do you get more bang for your buck? Let’s take a look at the two.
Let’s take a closer look at the Garmin Fenix 2. It’s very sleek, trim, and has a very easy interface. Young or old, the words and numbers are easy to read and see with no issues of glare or a jumbling of letters and numbers. For the every day sportsman and athlete, it does everything that’s needed of it. For runners it has your At-A-Glance training information screen that gives you all of your necessary information first hand without having to switch between screens. Your current pace or whether you are ahead or behind your target pace, as well as split times. It has a nice screen for recovery time as well, letting you know through a countdown when you will be at your peek performance again. Along with running options, it is water resistant and has a slew of other options for an outdoors-man including a compass and various other helpful specs for the great outdoors including a temperature gauge. Now that we had an overview of the Fenix 2, let’s compare to the 910XT.
At first glance, the 910XT isn’t as sleek looking and more boxy in contour. It’s lettering is a bit more pixel-ed and not as crisp as the Garmin Fenix 2. Though the letter’s and numbers are still big enough to read, if you are going solely on looks, you may get a bit turned off. It has a very quick and seamless transition through screens and activities, has a standard front screen for whichever activity you are doing. Such as time, distance, and even strokes. The 910XT has a bit more depth in the swimming department. It includes very extensive specs for swim metrics, pool length, stroke type, and swimming efficiency. It can even track your distance in the pool and show your swimming efficiency. If you are an adamant swimmer, this is a must have. The “busty” or more “robust” design on this watch make it great for kayaking sports and paddle boarding.

The conclusion between the two vary depending on what athletic endeavor you are venturing into. Based on the sleek look, all over design, it’s multisport functionality, I would have to give the winning number to the Garmin Fenix 2. Both sport watches are a fantastic find. Depending on whether you are mainly a water lover or a land lubber would be a deciding factor. However, for an all around athlete and outdoors man, the Fenix 2 is by far ahead of the race.
