For the Casual Runner and the Demanding Trail Runner

The fēnix 2 provides a dedicated profile which shows additional data such as ascent, performance and vertical speed - perfect for trail runners. All available profiles can be fully customised to suit the personal needs of the athletes.
Support Multisport Athletes
The fēnix 2 supports multisport athletes in all their disciplines and training environments. During open water and indoor swimming, the fēnix 2 tracks stroke count, intervals, distance, pace and more. During cycling the fēnix 2 provides detailed information on your performance and tracks cadence and power from optional sensors to complete your performance metrics.
Advanced Fitness Metrics
fēnix 2 is packed with cutting edge training features from Garmin, when used with a HRM-Run monitor it can give you stats about your form and fitness. The first is VO2 Max which gives you an estimation of your actual fitness based on your performance and various values of your heart rate. Track changes to your VO2 max to see your fitness gains and to compare with your peers. The fēnix 2 is even able to make a prediction on your race time based on your VO2 Max value. After your training the recovery advisor tells you how much time you need to recover from your last activity.¹
Running Dynamics Features
fēnix 2 incorporates sophisticated sensor feedback on your running form to provide multiple advanced running metrics. When used with the HRM-Run monitor¹, fēnix 2 reports your cadence, vertical oscillation and ground contact time. These metrics are called running dynamics, and they show your running efficiency. Knowing about your running dynamics can help you to improve your efficiency over time.
Have a great day Skiing
fēnix 2 tracks your skiing and snowboarding performance the smart way. It automatically counts your runs and detects speed, distance and vertical drop so you get separate data for individual run statistics. Once you get onto the ski lift and up the mountain it presents you with the data from your last run so you can compare your actual data with former runs or your days performance. With the included fabric wrist strap you can even wear your fēnix 2 over your jacket. fēnix 2 also has a dedicated cross country skiing mode and you can use your fēnix 2 as a glove-friendly remote for the VIRB™ and VIRB™ Elite action cameras.
Navigate Your Way
fēnix 2 is the only watch that offers you the full package of navigation features by Garmin - The world's most trusted name in navigation. fēnix 2 not only tracks where you've been, but it can also guide you into the wilderness and more importantly guide you back out again so you can feel 100% confident and safe with every step you take. It records a track log, creating a GPS "bread crumb trail" as you move. It also allows you to mark waypoints, such as your vehicle location, safe shelter, great viewpoints and other POIs (points of interest). With fēnix 2, you can create and follow routes, mark up to 1,000 waypoints and store up to 10,000 track points. You can even create your trip data on BaseCamp™, the free desktop trip-planning software from Garmin. Plan your trip at home, download the data to fēnix 2 and follow the navigation arrow to waypoints or the clearly visible route line to your destination. At the end of the day use TracBack™ to show you the safe way home.
Share your great outdoor experience instantly, just connect your fēnix 2 to your smartphone and share your position with your family and friends through LiveTrack² and Garmin Connect™ 2.0. Smart Notification allows you to wirelessly receive email, texts and alerts from your compatible iPhone®. Stay fully connected while you keep your precious phone stored safely in your backpack.
Altimeter, Barometer and Compass
fēnix 2 is equipped with a highly sensitive barometric altimeter and compass which get automatically calibrated using its GPS receiver to provide most accurate data. The built-in barometric 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. For precise ambient temperature reading, pair it with our optional wireless Tempe™ temperature sensor.
Built to Endure the Roughest Conditions
fēnix 2 combines a steel reinforced thermoplastic housing to help it survive shocks with a protective curved mineral glass lens to resist scratching. It boasts a crisp LCD display with a red LED backlight and a robust polyurethane wristband. An alternate fabric wrist strap (with hook-and-loop fastener) is also included with your fēnix 2 so you can strap it on top of a heavy jacket. fēnix 2 has a water rating of 5 ATM (50 meters) and has a battery life of up to 50 hours in GPS mode (depending on settings) and up to 5 weeks in watch mode.
Rugged and attractive, the fēnix 2 is also a highly accurate timepiece that can be worn every day. It includes settings for alarms, chimes and vibration alerts. It also functions as a timer, stopwatch and world clock. But above all it's the ultimate statement for your sporting performance and outdoor lifestyle.
About Outdoor GPS Units
GPS receivers are now made waterproof, lightweight and small enough to take outdoors and provide you with easy navigation and/or a detailed record of your journey. Most navigation units come with only very basic maps installed and you may need to purchase more detailed maps for your area to be loaded onto the unit. This can be done by purchasing a disk with a selection of maps to be downloaded via PC software, or with pre-loaded maps on storage cards for compatible units.
All electrical goods sold by Wiggle that include a mains power supply are supplied with a UK plug. Please check the product description to see if any other plugs are known to be included in the box, otherwise you may need an adapter for use in your country. Most power adapters will accept 110-240 Volts.

See this website for a review of the watch and in particular the photo comparing it to other models.
Hope this helps!
I found a great independent review of this watch which sold it to me. Although I don't have the same concern as you there are lots of unboxed pictures on this page including one of the watch on the reviewers wife's wrist.. "She’s tiny, and her wrist size is 14cm (or 5.5 inches)"
