For those who take adventure seriously, the rugged and stylish Fenix 3 Sapphire GPS Watch packs the functionality to get you to the top of your game and keep you there. With features for both navigation and fitness training, the Fenix 3 is ready for any training activity and competition. Here's a taste of what it can doAdvanced Fitness Metrics
The Fenix 3 Sapphire Watch 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 monitor, the Fenix 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.
Advanced Running Dynamics and Physiological Metrics
Go further with your running data and tap into extended physiological metrics and advanced running dynamics. When used with a heart rate monitor, the Fenix 3 Sapphire can report stride length, cadence, and much more.
Swim profile, Ski / board mode, Rowing and Golf
The Fenix 3 Sapphire Watch isnt just for running. With special features for swim training, skiing, golfing and paddle sports, the Fenix 3 Sapphire makes it easy to keep track of your training. Borrowing from the Garmin Swim device, Fenix 3 tracks your distance, pace, stroke count and more. You just tell it the size of the pool youre 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. The feature set for paddle sports includes stroke count, stroke rate and even distance per stroke. Golf mode gives you yardage to the front, back and middle of the green for any single course youve downloaded from Garmin Connect. You can even use your Fenix 3 as a glove-friendly remote, via ANT+ wireless connectivity, for VIRB action cameras.
Navigate your Way
The Fenix 3 Watch provides comprehensive navigation and tracking functionalities to guide you on and off the beaten path using GPS plus ABC (altimeter, barometer and compass). TracBack feature navigates you back to your starting point the same way you came. Its built-in sensors provide information on heading, elevation and weather changes.
It also records a GPS track log, creating a bread crumb trail as you move. Plus, you can mark locations, such as a start/finish line, course checkpoint or a campsite, vehicle or other point of interest. With Fenix 3, you can create and follow courses as well.
Altimeter, Barometer, and Compass
The Fenix 3 Watch 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 youre moving or not.
Fenix 3 also auto-calibrates its ABC sensors using its GPS receiver and also auto sets the time based on location. For an accurate temperature reading, pair it with Garmin's tempe external temperature sensor.
Custom Apps and Watch Faces
Personalize your Fenix 3 Watch with free downloads from Garmin's Connect IQ store. You can customize your watch face, add data fields and get apps and widgets that provide information at a glance.
Smart notifications let you receive emails, texts and alerts right on your watch, even if you're on the trail. Fenix 3 receives the wireless signal from your compatible smartphone and lets you know you have a message by displaying the text on its own screen.
