MULTI-GNSS SUPPORT

Access multiple global navigation satellite systems (GPS, GLONASS and Galileo) to track in more challenging environments than GPS alone.

 

ABC SENSORS

Navigate your next trail with ABC sensors, including an altimeter for elevation data, barometer to monitor weather and three-axis electronic compass.

 

PULSE OX SENSOR

For altitude acclimation or sleep monitoring, a Pulse Ox2 sensor uses light beams at your wrist to gauge how well your body is absorbing oxygen.

 

ACCLIMATION

This widget shows your current elevation, acclimated elevation and correlated Pulse Ox2, heart rate1 and respiration rate, so you can see how you’re holding up to the current elevation.

 

RESPIRATION TRACKING

See how you’re breathing throughout the day, during sleep and during breathwork and yoga activities.

 

EXPEDITION MODE

Trek far and wide between recharges. Expedition mode, an ultralow-powered GPS reference, lasts for weeks.
