Conquer every day and every adventure with epix Pro Series from Garmin

Garmin (NYSE: GRMN) today announced epix™ Pro Series, its next-gen high-performance GPS smartwatches with a crystal-clear AMOLED display, rugged design and impressive battery life. Touting up to 31 days of battery life1, epix Pro Series is loaded with all-day health monitoring and fitness metrics to help users stay active.

"To be your best, you need the best, and we're excited to bring innovative features to our most capable smartwatch yet. Packed with innovative training tools, mapping updates, health and wellness insights and more, the new epix Pro Series means you no longer have to choose between the features you want, but rather which size is best for you." –Dan Bartel, Garmin Vice President of Global Consumer Sales

Rugged by design

Built for 24/7 wear, epix Pro Series combines a resilient athletic design with premium materials like sapphire and titanium – each with a stunning, full-color AMOLED display. A responsive touchscreen complements the traditional 5-button design, allowing for quick access to maps, fitness stats, smart notifications and more. Compatible with a wide variety of metal, leather, nylon and silicone QuickFit™ bands, epix Pro Series can be just as easily worn in the boardroom as at the gym. Customers can also design their own epix Pro by mixing and matching bands and bezels with Your Watch, Your Way on garmin.com.

Conquer Every Hour

With dozens of built-in sports apps – including new team sport activities like football, baseball, softball and more – epix Pro Series provides data and insights for any passion. Whether working out at a gym or in the comfort of one's home, epix Pro Series tracks activities like strength, cardio, indoor rowing, stair stepping, yoga and HIIT. Users can also follow animated cardio, strength, yoga and Pilates workouts right on their watch screen. For those exploring the great outdoors, they can keep track of adventures like hiking, mountain biking, skiing, snowboarding, surfing, whitewater rafting and more.

Around-the-clock wearability

Designed for all-day wear, epix Pro Series includes advanced health and wellness tools, as well as a suite of smart features to keep users connected while on the go. Loaded with 24/7 health monitoring features, epix Pro Series includes a wrist-based Pulse Ox sensor2, Body Battery™ energy monitoring, jet lag adviser, advanced sleep monitoring and sleep score, and more. Users can also create a customized look at last night's sleep, their training outlook, Heart Rate Variability (HRV) status and more as soon as they wake up with the morning report feature.

Race day ready

Whether training for a 5K or something far longer, epix Pro Series is prepared for every step of the way. Every morning, users can receive a training readiness score to help them determine if it's a good day to go hard or take it easy while metrics like VO2 max, training load, training status and more will help them gauge overall performance. Those preparing for their next race can take advantage of free Garmin Coach 5K, 10K or half marathon training plans and also use the race widget to view training tips, completion time predictions and an entire week of daily suggested workouts. For runners going the distance, epix Pro Series includes a wide range of advanced training features, including PacePro™, ClimbPro, real-time stamina insights and wrist-based running power.

Navigate with ease

No matter where the next adventure leads, epix Pro Series includes premium mapping features to help explorers stay on track. SatIQ™ technology and multi-band signal reception combined with multi-GNSS provide superior positioning accuracy in challenging environments – all while optimizing battery life. Available on epix Pro Sapphire Editions, preloaded TopoActive maps provide multi-continent mapping from around the world to keep explorations on track. With an Outdoor Maps+ subscription (sold separately), users will receive premium mapping content, like satellite imagery, right on their watch. Before heading out, adventurers can create or find existing courses in Garmin Connect™ and seamlessly sync them to their watch, or, while out exploring, can use epix Pro Series to create round-trip routes on local paths using Trendline™ popularity routing. Plus, the bright AMOLED display makes these features pop – providing very detailed and easy to interpret maps so adventurers can make informed decisions.
