Advanced Fitness Metrics
Fenix 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 monitor, the watch 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.With feature sets for fitness training plus feature sets for outdoor navigation, Fenix 3 is ready for any training activity and competition. Access to the Connect IQ platform allows customisation of watch faces, data fields, widgets and activities for added personalisation and usability. Garmin Fenix 3 is also thin, light and stylish, making it ideal for both training, and everyday use.
Running Dynamics Features
Garmin Fenix 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 Fenix 3 isn’t just for running; special feature sets help swim training and skiing too. Borrowing from the Garmin Swim, Fenix 3 tracks your distance, pace, stroke count and more. You just tell Fenix 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
Garmin Fenix 3 provides GPS plus ABC (altimeter, barometer and compass), offering you combined training functions, matched with class leading GPS technology. Fenix 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 Fenix 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. Fenix is equipped with both ANT+ and Bluetooth® Smart capabilities to wirelessly share locations, routes and geocaches.
Altimeter, Barometer and Compass
Fenix 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.
Fenix 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 Garmin's tempe external temperature sensor.
