Garmin fēnix 3 GPS Multisport Watch

Garmin must really understand triathletes. The fēnix 3 collects even more data for you to crunch and provides even more features to help you use that data.

Simply put, the fēnix 3 takes all the features of the Forerunner 920xt, puts them in a stylish watch, and adds state-of-the art navigation features.

Swim: Whether you're indoors or out, the fēnix 3 collects distance, pace, stroke count, stroke rate, and SWOLF score. There's a drill mode and timers and alerts to keep you on track.

Bike: The watch pairs with your full set of ANT+ sensors — heart rate*, speed/cadence**, and power*** — for all your training. Outdoors, the fēnix 3 uses its powerful EXO antenna to track your position, speed, and distance.

Run: The fēnix 3 uses the HRM-Run monitor* to help you improve your run. It tracks cadence, vertical oscillation, and ground contact time. It also estimates your VO2 max so you can track your improving fitness, predicts your finish time for a given race distance, and serves as a recovery advisor.

Hike, Ski, and More: The fēnix 3 provides the classic ABC outdoor navigation tools (altimeter, barometer, compass) plus cutting edge GPS + GLONASS satellite navigation technology. It creates a “bread crumb trail” as you move. It also allows you to mark locations and create and follow courses. If trail running or hiking are your thing, you'll enjoy new features like the auto climb/run switch and the climb odometer. When skiing or snowboarding, it gives you speed, distance, vertical drop, and an automatic run counter (with auto pause for the lift line).

Stay Active: The fēnix 3 even has all the latest activity tracking features to measure your steps, sleep, and calories burned all day, giving you a more complete picture of your activity and health. If you sit too long, it will remind you to move.

Connect: As with other Garmin products, you can download workouts to the watch and upload completed activities to Garmin Connect. And, when paired with your compatible Bluetooth Smart Ready phone****, it has all of Garmin’s newer “connected features”: automatic uploads to Garmin Connect, live tracking, and social media sharing.

Life is a multi-sport event, with the fēnix 3 you'll be ready for anything.

* HRM-Run monitor is included in the “Performer Bundle," not with the watch only version. The watch is compatible with other Garmin heart rate straps, but they will provide only heart rate data, not the advanced features.
** Speed/cadence sensor is available separately.
*** fēnix 3 can be paired with Garmin Vector (available separately) or third-party ANT+-compatible power meters.
