Garmin Fenix 3

Garmin has become synonymous with high-quality GPS sports watches, and the Garmin Fenix 3 is another entrant into the company's vast array of excellent tracking products.

The Garmin Fenix 3 is for the runner that wants complete and complex tracking. The Fenix 3 sports watch isn't made for short jogs on the weekends. It is made for long distances and even longer hours of sweat, dirt and exhaustion. If you are serious about running, walking or hiking, the Garmin Fenix 3 is the watch for you.

Why do you need it?

The Garmin Fenix 3 features one of the longest lasting batteries of all sports watches. The sports watch can last up to five weeks on a single charge when in watch mode. When GPS has been activated it will run for up to 20 hours, and if you switch it to hike mode, the Fenix 3 can go long and strong for 50 hours. That is some serious battery!

Weekend hikers or ultra-runners will love the long life battery, but the Fenix 3 is also durable. The rubber wristband means it won't come off easily and the sweat from your workout won't damage it.

So, what can you track with the Garmin Fenix 3? The question should really be, what can't you track? The sports watch easily tracks hiking, climbing, cross-country skiing, running, cycling, swimming, indoor workouts, triathlon and more. The Garmin Fenix 3 is truly amazing when it comes to tracking sports, but what else would you expect from the leaders in activity and sports watches?

Once you have tracked your sport, there is a wealth of data that can be seen via the smartphone app. The Fenix 3 uses the Garmin Connect mobile app, which is available on Android and iOS.

Compare

If you are serious about the sports you participate in and want a watch that is serious too, there is no competition. While the Apple Watch Series 2 and Fitbit activity watches can do some of the things the Fenix 3 can, they are quite limited in comparison.

The Garmin Fenix 3 is the best you can get when it comes to sports watches. If you want to train for a marathon, triathlon or just love heading to the mountains each weekend, this is a great sports watch to take along with you.

Final verdict

The Garmin Fenix 3 is a sports watch that delivers professional data to anyone that wears it. The range of sports and tracking data it produces is amazing, and is well worth the price.

It looks great too, and is slightly smaller than the Garmin Fenix 2. If you want to get fit and obtain a crazy amount of information, the Garmin Fenix 3 is the perfect sports watch.
