Garmin Fenix 3 review: worth the money

 

Stuart reviews the Garmin Fenix 3 -- a smartwatch that exudes both class for the office and features for the road runner alike.

Review: Garmin fēnix 3 sportswatch

 

The fēnix 3 is Garmin's latest take on the rugged, outdoor sportswatch. It combines some advanced fitness and activity tracking features with basic smartphone notifications, and it's aimed at those who spend a lot of their spare time running, hiking,...

The watch comes with a 10 ATM water resistance rating, which equates to being able to withstand pressures equivalent to a depth of 100 m (330 ft). That means bathing, swimming and snorkeling should all be fine, but not deep water scuba diving or...

Garmin Fenix 3 review

 

Fantastic fitness watch comes at a price

Easy and intelligent configuration ; Quick and accurate tracking ; Rugged and long-lasting

Needs a chest strap to really shine ; Basic on-screen display ; Sleep tracking is so-so ; Pricey as hell

While the world fawns over the Apple Watch, serious runners and adventurers know an outdoor sportswatch is a far better way of spending your money, and this is Garmin's most ambitious effort yet.

Garmin Fenix 3

 

The Garmin Fenix 3 is a serious runner's watch. It's big, it's expensive and makes a pretty bold design statement on your wrist. But it's also great.

Excellent battery life ; Hard-wearing frame ; Versatile GPS tracking ; Quick, well-designed UI

Lacks golf tracking of other models ; No on-watch maps ; Big and bulky
