A fashionable training accessory.
Track your fitness in style with the Garmin Fenix 3 Sapphire Performer Bundle. This impeccably constructed watch may look like your everyday timepiece with its stainless steel housing, interchangeable metal and rubber bands, and sparkling domed Sapphire crystal face, but it stealthily packs in a plethora of technology to track and analyze every detail of your daily activity and training bouts — especially when paired with the included heart rate monitor strap. And the best part is, unless you tell someone how crazy it is, they won't even know you're wearing something that would make your grandma's pocket-watch-reading head explode.
The stainless steel housing and crystal-clear face conceal an EXO+ GPS and GLONASS antenna that's the basis for all the location-marking, activity-tracking, and route-planning capabilities of the Fenix 3. It can tell you how fast you're going, how far you've gone, where you are, where you're going, when you'll get there, how fast your heart's beating, how many calories you've burned, how much elevation you've gained, what type of swimming stroke you're doing, how many ski runs you've taken, how soundly you're sleeping, and many other metrics that would take too much time to list. It can even come up with a digital partner for you to race against, let you race against yourself, or let you see how much faster you ride than run the same course.
Once the Fenix 3 has tracked all of these things, it can save them or automatically share them with your phone, tablet, or computer so you can see what you've done, the progress you've made, and start planning for the future. Among other things, it is compatible with ANT+, which lets your tracking devices talk to each other and share even more data, various heart rate monitors, and Garmin's Tempe thermometer. You can even get e-mail, text, and stock alerts while you're on the move, if you can't stand to be disconnected even when you're in the wilderness. No matter how you slice it, the fenix 3 is a powerful piece of wearable tech that has the ability to totally change how you work out, recreate, compete, and explore.

Worth the bills
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I've had this for about a week, so here's the quick and dirty review of it. My main concern was the battery life, and so far has far exceeded my expectations. in a 24 hr period of working in a hospital, running, lifting weights (both with the HRM-HR on) and just out and about with the wifi and bluetooth on only drained the battery 15%! The GPS is pretty accurate from what I can tell. I have been enjoying customizing the face and the widgets to fit what I need this watch to do. Overall if you're on the fence because of the price, pull the trigger, you won't be disappointed. To Be Continued...
Even more impressed with this watch. The bluetooth reaches about 50 or so yards, the battery lasts a week with a little to spare (I had WiFi, bluetooth, GPS, everything I could have on I did to see how the battery held up). Aesthetically I have bigger wrists and it looks good unlike some of the smaller garmins, and I like the round face. When charging it literally goes from 0-60, really fast!
