Serious Style That Stands Up to the Roughest Conditions :
fēnix 3 is available in 3 bold models: gray with high-strength, scratch resistant, crystal and black band; silver with red band; and the premium sapphire model with a stainless steel band and sapphire lens.
Each watch features a protective stainless steel bezel and buttons, and reinforced housing for extra durability.
A sunlight-visible high-resolution color Garmin Chroma Display with LED backlight lets you access your data in any light. fēnix 3 is water rated 100 meters and has a battery life of up to 50 hours in UltraTrac™ battery saver mode, 16 hours in GPS mode and up to 3 months in watch mode (all depending on settings).
Advanced Fitness Metrics :
fēnix 3 is packed with training features to tell you about your form and fitness.
The first is the VO2 max estimator. When used with a heart rate monitor¹, fēnix 3 crunches data, including your running speed, beats per minute and heart rate variability to estimate the maximum volume of oxygen you can consume per minute.
Track changes to your VO2 max to see your fitness gains and to compare with your peers.
Other fitness metrics include recovery advisor with a recovery timer and recovery check, plus a Race Predictor, which estimates your ideal finish time based on your current VO2 max number.
Running Dynamics Features :
fēnix 3 incorporates sophisticated Garmin running watch feedback on your running form by reporting multiple metrics.
When used with the HRM-Run monitor¹, fēnix 3 reports your cadence, vertical oscillation and ground contact time.
These metrics are called running dynamics, and they affect your running economy.
Swim Profile and Ski/Board Mode :
The fēnix 3 isn’t just for running; special feature sets help swim training and skiing too.
Borrowing from the Garmin Swim™, fēnix 3 tracks your distance, pace, stroke count and more.
You just tell fēnix 3 the size of the pool you’re swimming in and begin your workout.
Ski/Board mode puts speed, distance, vertical drop and an automatic run counter (with Auto Pause for the lift line) and more at your fingertips.
You can even use your fēnix 3 as a glove-friendly remote, via ANT+®, for the VIRB® and VIRB Elite action cameras.
Navigate Your Way :
No other navigator GPS plus ABC (altimeter, barometer and compass) wristwatch offers you the combined training functions and our leading GPS technology.
fēnix 3 provides comprehensive navigation and tracking functionalities to guide you on and off the beaten track. Its built-in sensors provide information on heading, elevation and weather changes.
It records a GPS track log creating a “bread crumb trail” as you move.
It also allows you to mark locations, such as a start/finish line, course checkpoint, or a campsite, vehicle or other point of interest.
With fēnix 3, you can create and follow courses, mark up to 1,000 locations and store up to 10,000 track points and navigate to them.
Plan trips and share adventures with friends and family using BaseCamp™.
Altimeter, Barometer and Compass :
fēnix 3 is equipped with ABC sensors to provide relevant real-time information.
The built-in altimeter provides elevation data to accurately monitor ascent and descent, while the barometer can be used to predict weather changes by showing short-term trends in air pressure.
The 3-axis electronic compass keeps your bearing whether you’re moving or not.
fēnix 3 auto-calibrates its ABC sensors using its GPS receiver and also auto sets the time based on location.
For an extremely accurate temperature reading, pair it with our tempe™ external temperature sensor.
Custom Apps and Watch Faces :
Personalize fēnix 3 with free downloads from our Connect IQ store.
You can customize your watch face, add data fields and get apps and widgets that provide information at a glance.
Stay Connected :
Smart Notifications lets you receive emails, texts and alerts right on your watch, even if you're on the trail.
fēnix 3 receives the wireless signal from a compatible iPhone® 4s (or newer) or Android™ smartphone² and let’s you know you have a message, displaying the text on its own screen whenever you’re ready to read it.
Wear Your Personality on Your Sleeve :
Download the free Garmin Face It™ watch face app to customize your device with any photo from your smartphone.
Just download the app, choose an image from your photo library, adjust the style for time and set it as your watch’s face.
