Upgraded from the fenix 2 after how much I was using it and had transitioned from my purely ultra-running watch to my running and everyday watch. The fenix 3 has only made it all the better with leather straps, color eInk and metal finish. I originally purchased the silver bezel but the contrast of silver on black made it look like a dive watch and visually bigger. I pulled a non-warranty exchange to the dark grey bezel and love it. Blends in to normal wear but great for every activity in my life as well: camping, sailing, running & bike commute. Smartphone alerts are a nice added touch and reminds you quickly to dial back how much your phone really wants your attention. Additionally, the NATO strap - when worn like shown -doesn't dig into the table or wrist, making it the perfect desk to trail companion.
