Garmin is well-known for making navigation equipment and multisport GPS watches. Now, they upgraded the Fenix 3 line of watches and introduced Garmin Fenix 3 HR. Its main new feature is the heart rate monitor, so it’s perfect for any sport or outdoor activity.
With protective PVD-stainless steel bezel and buttons, this watch is extremely durable. The strap is made from UV-treated silicone and the housing is reinforced. The display is high-resolution color Chroma and has an LED backlight. This means you’ll be able to see under direct sunlight or any other light. The battery is rechargeable and can last up to 2 weeks when in smartwatch mode.
Garmin Fenix 3 HR keeps track of your heart rate, monitors sleep and counts steps. It’ll gather all important information and calculate how many calories you burn. This watch does much more. It has all sort of incredible training features. VO2 max estimator will tell your running speed and even estimate the maximum volume of oxygen you can consume per minute.
This watch features advanced running dynamics. It can tell your current pace, number of steps per minute, how much you ‘bounce’ in your running motion and your running symmetry. Physiological metrics will measure stress score, performance condition and lactate threshold.
You can create a profile not just for running. It works great for swimming, skiing, rowing sports, and even golf (check the Garmin golf simulator too). There are different modes for a specific sport. Of course, if would be hard to imagine a Garmin watch without GPS navigation. You can mark locations, create and follow courses, check weather changes and leave a “bread crumb trail” as you go. Not to forget the ABC sensors- altimeter, barometer and compass.
You can download Garmin apps in order to customize your watch face and get more information about how each feature works. It can connect using wifi to your smartphone, so you can also use it to receive emails, texts and alerts.
