Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
The Fenix 3 HR is an impressive watch. If you are looking for a sports watch it is probably top of its class! If you are not using it to keep track of your fitness and utilizing it for its GPS you might want to look elsewhere.
-Very Durable- Hit it against some bricks, didn't have any scratches on sides or the face.
-HR- Heart rate monitor, is not as good as a stand alone but does good enough.
-GPS- Is accurate as far as I can tell. Keep in mind this is a GPS lite and not a full on map and navigation system.
-Additional Apps- This includes other activities that are not on the watch already, additional watch faces, and it even has games.
-Bluetooth- Message, e-mails and alerts can be read on the watch.
-Battery- With all features turned on it lasts me a week, I use the GPS for an hour every other day.
-Watch Strap- I have the standard sports strap, it is comfortable but the smooth coating started wearing off after a month.
-Memory- It does not have much storage space, keep that in mind if you want to use the watch as a stand alone GPS
Overall I like the watch, It looks great and does what I need it to. Yes it is expensive and could use some improvements, but I feel that way with just about anything I spend more then $5 on.
