Garmin Fenix 3 Review

Are you a serious runner, then you will be more than pleased with the Garmin Fenix 3? The wearable is a runner’s watch and makes a bold statement on the wrist. But is this all the timepiece has to offer you? Let us see what other athletes had to say about this fitness tracker.

Pros / What Customers Like:

  • Athletes found the smartwatch had more to offer than just keeping track of running. The wearable has an all-purpose outdoor function for hiking, cycling, skiing and more.
  • Most users found the auto sleep tracking helpful, as they do not need to set it up to sleep monitoring.
  • Divers love the 100-meter waterproof design and make it able for them to use it underwater without the need of removing it. The smartwatch is a real on the go timepiece.
  • The fact that you can purchase the wearable with a sapphire crystal top layer is outstanding and comes highly recommended by mountain climbers.
  • A stand out for all users is the battery life that holds power use well while using tracking and notifications.
  • Although the Fenix 3 does not have a touchscreen, using the start button presents you with loads of multiple sports profiles to use. Snowboarders, skiing, cyclist and more love the feature that is easy to use.
  • Professional trainers found the Connect IQ store a big help as you can review your tracking data and is straightforward to use.
  • With the array of sensors, included customers found the fitness tracker fantastic to keep track of different activities.
  • The fact that executives can receive notifications while working out at the gym is a bonus. Another helpful feature manager’s love is the calendar that synchronizes with the Google one using Wi-Fi or Bluetooth connection.

Cons / What Customers Don't Like:

  • The biggest complaint noticed by all users is that the watch is big and not suitable for a woman to wear, but comfortable to wear.
  • A big downside for this fitness watch is that the screen is not visible without using ambient light, but does include a built-in light according to most athletes.
  • Marathon runners found the lack of viewing their location on the map while on the wrist disappointing.
  • Another negative is that the device does not have an HR sensor built in and needs extra accessories to track your heart rate. But it does work with different ANT+ gadgets.


For an excellent running watch, the Fenix 3 has everything you need to help improve your training. The wearable is touch and has an outstanding battery life. Whether you plan to run a marathon or ski down the slopes of Alps this watch will serve you well.
