Hiking with Epix



Hiking is the perfect pastime for many. It can take immense determination, tough mental and physical endurance, and a strong sense of direction to conquer certain paths. The saying goes that those who wander aren’t always lost, but what if that really was the case? The idea of losing your bearings while out on an adventure can be the worst-case scenario for most people, but with a Epix GPS mapping watch on your wrist, you can navigate your hiking trek with confidence and accumulate important data to assist you along the way.

Need to see your location? 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. Once you make a fix on your location, you have access to a full menu of navigation features including advanced track recording, track navigation, waypoint and coordinate navigation, Sight'n Go, and point-by-point routing. Plus, the built-in 3-axis electronic compass helps keep your bearings whether you’re moving or not.

Concerned about the weather? The barometer can be used to predict weather changes by showing short-term trends in air pressure, while the built-in altimeter provides elevation data to accurately monitor ascent and descent.  Even if it rains, Epix has a water rating of 50 meters and is designed to withstand some of the roughest conditions you’ll ever encounter.
