At one point, the Garmin Fenix was the flagship of Garmin’s activity trackers. Since then, these devices have gotten slicker, more functional, and aesthetically pleasing. The Fenix 3 is the culmination of everything Garmin learned over the years. It looks good, too, with the stainless steel band and display that can be read in direct sunlight. The battery can last up to three months in watch-only mode, but that shortens to 16 hours with the GPS activated.
This watch can be programmed to work with several different sports. It can track your runs or the pace of your swim. It has a tracker for skiing, too, that can automatically pause on ski lifts.
It’s filled with all the features you’d need in an activity tracker like this, including step tracking, weather tracking, and GPS. It can track barometric pressure and record data over the long term with Garmin’s proprietary apps and programs. If you’ve owned a Garmin device before, the added benefit to this device is that it fits right in with the Garmin ecosystem.
