Full Color Mapping GPS/GLONASS on Your Wrist

  • 1.4-inch high-resolution color touchscreen
  • Worldwide shaded relief basemap
  • 8 GB built-in memory so you can load up on maps, such as TOPO U.S. 24K and BirdsEye Satellite Imagery
  • Stainless steel EXO™ antenna with GPS/GLONASS reception
  • Altimeter, barometer and 3-axis compass

epix is the first-of-its-kind, high-resolution, color, touchscreen GPS/GLONASS mapping watch with worldwide, shaded relief basemap and 1-year BirdsEye Satellite Imagery subscription. Some models also feature preloaded TOPO 100K maps. Eight GB of built-in memory supports additional mapping, including BirdsEye Satellite Imagery and regional TOPO U.S. 24K maps. The revolutionary, stainless steel EXO antenna combined with GPS and GLONASSS reception mean better signal strength and quicker position fixes.

Detailed Mapping

The epix touchscreen display gives you fingertip pan/swipe access to vivid, detailed maps, including the built-in worldwide shaded relief basemaps. And with 8 GB internal memory and extensive mapping support, you’ll have plenty of room to add (and interact with) compatible maps, including TOPO 24K, BirdsEye Satellite Imagery, City Navigator® and BlueChart® g2 maps.

Extensive Navigation Features

Our new, high-sensitivity, EXO antenna technology means better GPS signal strength and faster time to your first fix. epix uses HotFix® to access both GPS and GLONASS satellites for noticeably quicker positioning than GPS alone. Once the fix is made, you have access to a full menu of navigation features, including advanced track recording, track navigation, TracBack®, waypoint and coordinate navigation, Sight'n Go and point-by-point routing.

Altimeter, Barometer and Compass

epix is equipped with auto-calibrating ABC sensors to provide relevant real-time information. The built-in altimeter provides elevation data to accurately monitor ascent and descent, while the barometer can be used to predict weather changes by showing short-term trends in air pressure. The 3-axis electronic compass keeps your bearing whether you’re moving or not.

A Full-featured Fitness Training Watch

No need to change watches between adventures. epix gives you easy/quick access to fitness training feature sets, helping you get ready for your next one.

Rugged Construction

The epix color mapping watch features a rugged design with mineral glass lens and rugged PVD-coated surfaces. With a water rating of 50 meters, epix is designed to withstand some of the roughest conditions you’ll encounter. It’s also an auto-calibrated timepiece that both helps convey you to point B, and convey to others how serious you are about the outdoors.

Connect IQ™

epix uses the Connect IQ platform for specialized software so you can personalize your watch with customized apps, widgets, data fields and unique watch faces that make your Garmin smartwatch even smarter.

Stay Connected

epix displays smart notifications from your compatible Bluetooth® device¹ so you never miss a text, email or notification, unless you want to. And, with Garmin Connect™ and Connect IQ you’ll be connected to a whole community of people who love the outdoors as much as you do and to outdoor app developers building smart apps specially for epix. With LiveTrack, others can track where you are (within a coverage area) through Garmin Connect on your smartphone.
