    Details

    All the data.

    The Garmin Fenix 3 provides so much information that it's ideal for runners, hikers, cyclists, swimmers, skiers, snowboarders, mountaineers, endurance athletes, and the list goes on. And if you think that it stops at speed, distance, calories burned, location, and GPS-tracking, you’ll be excited to know that it even counts elevation gain, how many ski runs you’ve done, how your swim stroke looks, and even … how soundly you are sleeping. If that isn’t like having your own personal coach, we don’t know what is. And you’ll always be able to see the numbers because Garmin uses a high-resolution, sunlight-visible, Chroma display.

    Inside of this seemingly innocuous looking stainless steel housing is an EXO+ GPS and GLONASS antenna that is the point of departure for all the location marking and more advanced route-planning features of the Fenix. Besides the location finding, the Fenix goes a step further to ensure you’re always connected with email, text, and even stock alerts delivered to your wrist. Once your workout is complete, data upload is instant.

    Does everything I need

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    This is an awesome watch, I honestly haven't used even 2/3 of the functions, but I am a fan of what I have utilized. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because it's a little big and bulky on my wrist.

    Great Watch

    • Fit: True to size

    This is an awesome watch. I love having the GPS and all other tracking right on my wrist. A little complicated to use at first, but playing around with it and reading the instructions made a big difference and now it's second nature. Might be a bit big on some smaller wrists, but it fits me great.

    Awesome Watch

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Altimeter, barometer, GPS tracking, and activity tracking, reliably, all on my wrist? Yes please! This watch is awesome. The Garmin Connect lets me hook up my data to Strava and red band is super fancy. One downside - its not the smallest watch on the market.

    Adventurer Racer

      Awesome watch, really glad I invested in it. Stock watch band was actually really impressive, and can't beat the Live Tracking feature that allows your loved ones or friends to check your progress during those day long races. I only find myself charging my Fenix 3 once a week, which isn't bad at all. Great fit and look.

      not for skiers

        I bought this watch for skiing. Although I really wanted to love it, and I can tell that it is a good product for some sports, it does not do what I wanted.

        First, I wanted to be able to track my skiing by the day and by the run. This watch automatically stops the timer (and the "climb") when you are on the chair. While this may desirable for some, I have always tracked my ski days as a total, not just the times I was descending.

        At the end of the day, I want to look at my stats, runs etc. The information given on the "Connect" app is for time and distance per run, no elevation information! Yes, I can find this info on the watch, but why have a skiing app that does not give vertical? Kind of a joke.

        But here is the deal -breaker for my - well two of them. If I am going to spend this kind of bread on a watch, I want it to work for my fitness goals. And mine are based on vertical feet skiing. So I went to the "training" app to set a target- What? I cannot set a vertical feet, or descent target? Okay, well I will just use the odometer feature and track day to day myself, "manually". What, no vertical descent odometer? Okay, well I will just use the climb odometer, because chair skiing I guess descent and climb are the same. What? It does not record climb on the skiing app, because that is turned off with the "auto-run" feature on. Okay, I will turn that feature off. What? Now it does not keep track of runs?

        You can keep track of distance, which for skiing is a joke; the easier the run, the longer the distance for the same vertical drop. So "distance" is relevant only if you are trying to NOT get in shape.

        $500 and I cannot use it for skiing? I am taking it back. Very disappointed. I wanted to love this watch and geek out with it for years to come. Turned out to just be a big time suck trying to figure out why it wouldn't do what a skier would want it to do.

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        My old Garmin forerunner died and the stressful quest began to find the replacement. I like to have 1 GPS for running, biking, skiing, hiking and all things fun. Its primary purpose is for my long training runs and 100 mile trail runs and it has exceeded my expectations.

        Being able to down load apps and set the display to something I like is fun, navigating the menu is simple and the buttons are easy to find even after no sleep for 24 hours.

        While the Garmin doesn't have enough batter life to use the GPS for a full 100 miles (at least for most of us), you can charge it on the go using a Goal Zero Flip 10 recharger, you have the Garmin charger cord to deal with, but just for a couple of hours and then you are good to go for another 12-14 h. I'm not one that likes or needs to be connected to my phone 24/7, however, I have to admit that being able to run or mtn bike with my phone in my pack and receive text messages and see who is calling without having to stop, this has turned into a value added feature. While this was purchased for use with activities, I have found myself wearing this everyday since it reminds me when I have been sitting too long at my desk with a message to 'MOVE', I can't argue with that!

        Geek out or not - great watch

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        Upgraded from the Fenix to Fenix 3 and haven't looked back. If you are a geek then this watch will give you a lot of data to pour over. I'm not a geek, but still love the user friendliness of this watch to customize screens and even download unique faces and parameters from the internet. Veddy Cool.

        For the "Jack-of-all-trades" this is THE watch. I trail run, whitewater kayak, backpack, mountain bike, flyfish in saltwater marshes and the list goes on. For gym rats you can even measure your spin class stuff or treadmill crap (ugh).

        If you are only a runner or tri-athlete this isn't the watch for you, but if you engage in a LOT of various outdoors activities this watch will meet your needs.

        My ONLY complaint is that mt biking in the thick woods it doesn't mark distances super accurately. Running doesn't seem to be a problem and maybe this is something Garmin can fix with an update.

        Go out and get it done - on the trails, on the road, in the woods, in the marsh. This watch will serve you and all those pursuits well.

        Cheers,
        FlyFishNut

        Addendum: 1/20/16-- I was having issues with my Fenix 3 reliability on distance. I called Garmin and they verified I had updated the firmware and THEY suggested they send me a new device! I did not have to press them at all - great customer service. New watch is in and will test it and comment when I get a few runs/mt bike trips/etc behind me to weigh in, but I feel like based on the conversation with the CSR at Garmin that there was an issue with my device.
        Great Service Garmin.

        backpackers dream

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        I have to say as a suunto fan I was hesitant to get this watch. However after using it for some time I'm glad I made the switch. Suunto makes great watched but they are more geared to the ultra sport crowd. I love pizza too much to be running, biking, and swimming all in one day. However my passion is backpacking. the accuracy of this watch is amazing. Compared to my other watches including the suunto ambit 3 the fenix 3 was closer to not only my location but altitude and pace. I lost most of my hearing when I was in the Army, (my fault for being to close to stuff that goes boom) so i have a very hard time hearing the alarms on most watches. Having the ability to set a vibrate alarm to notify me of a planned stoping point or wake up time was a huge plus. Also the ability to change the settings on the watch is nice, some make you connect to a computer to do so. Lastly i use a powermonkey solar charger and noticed the watch takes to battery and solar charging very well unlike the older garmin and suunto models that liked to throw a fit when you used anything but a wall outlet. Its a bit pricy but this watch will give suunto a run for their money.

        What are the differences in the Fenix Models?

        Best Answer

        So there are actually a lot of differences, maybe to many to hit up here in this forum. First off, lets drop the Fenix out of the equation, its the same price as the updated 2, and Garmin doesnt make/ sell it anymore.



        Fenix 2 versus Fenix Bundle = HR monitor. Extra $50 gets you the heart monitor included in the box.



        Fenix 3 slightly bigger face yet, thinner on the wrist. Better display resolution, and had color display. Weigh .01 oz less than the Fenix 2. Smaller battery means its faster to charge yet, it holds the same power as the 2 and even an extra week when only in watch mode (No GPS). You can also have some functionality between music on your phone and a find your phone feature. A big seller is the Fenix 3 uses, GLONASS an additional GPS system that provides more accurate and faster (20% faster) satellite data, than a device with out.



        Some other features is that it will keep your personal records and provide a virtual pacer for you. Comes with a step counter, and actually monitors sleep patterns. It will also easily auto syn data to your computer.



        The one thing it does not come with is the hunting/fishing calendars, and the sun and moon info.



        I think the GLONASS alone is worth the extra $100 plus you have the latest and greatest from Garmin.
