Garmin Fenix 7 / Epix Gen 2 Extreme Multi-Band Test (The Narrows - Zion NP)

I thought, what better place to test the multi-band performance of the Epix Gen2 / Fenix 7 than "The Narrows" at Zion National Park? So, in this video, I'll show you how not only the Epix Gen 2 did in the slot canyons of The Narrows, but I'll also compare it to the performance of the iPhone 13 Pro Max, the GPSMAP 66i, and Fenix 6x. The results are not what you'd expect.

In this Guide:
  • Test Conditions & Results
  • Every Second vs Smart Recording
  • Comparing the iPhone, GPSMAP 66, and Fenix 6

Hi, I'm Cris Hazzard, aka Hiking Guy, a professional outdoors guide, hiking expert, and author based in Southern California. I created this website to share all the great hikes I do with everyone else out there. This site is different because it gives detailed directions that even the beginning hiker can follow. I also share what hiking gear works and doesn't so you don't waste money. I don't do sponsored or promoted content; I share only the gear recommendations, hikes, and tips that I would with my family and friends. If you like the website and YouTube channel, please support these free guides (I couldn't do it without folks like you!).
