Be ready for any training activity and competition with a rugged multisport training GPS watch, with strapless heart rate monitoring.

Omni-directional stainless steel EXO™ antenna, with GPS/GLONASS satellite reception, which can track in more challenging environments than GPS alone
Elevate™ wrist heart rate technology measures heart rate at the wrist
Fitness training - advanced running dynamics with vertical oscillation and vertical ratio, VO2 max, recovery advisor and more
Outdoor navigation - 3-axis compass, altimeter and barometer and TracBack®
1.2" sunlight-readable Garmin Chroma Display™ with a protected domed crystal lens
Useful features for runners, trainers, golfers, swimmers, paddlers, filmers....

The Garmin fenix 3 HR multisport training GPS watch will guide you through fitness training and outdoor navigation, with access to the Connect IQTM platform so you can customise its look and download helpful widgets and apps.

Stands Up to the Roughest Conditions
It features a protective PVD-stainless steel bezel and buttons, treated silicone band and reinforced housing for extra durability. A sunlight-visible, high-resolution color Garmin Chroma Display with LED backlight lets you access your data in any light. Its water-rated to 100 metres, with a battery life of up to 40 hours in UltraTrac™ battery saver mode, 16 hours in GPS mode and up to 2 weeks in smartwatch mode (all depending on settings).

Elevate Wrist Heart Rate Technology
Elevate wrist heart rate technology lets you monitor your heart rate without wearing a chest strap. In addition to counting steps and monitoring sleep, fenix 3 HR uses heart rate to provide accurate calories burned information and quantify the intensity of your fitness activities.

Measure Oxygen Levels and More During Exercise
The VO2 max estimator 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 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
Tap into extended physiological metrics and advanced running dynamics². fenix 3 HR reports the following data:
Vertical oscillation and ratio — the degree of 'bounce' in your running motion and the benefit ratio to stride length
Ground contact time and balance — shows how much time, in the running motion, your foot is on the ground rather than in flight and lets you check your running symmetry
Cadence — number of steps per minute
Stride length — determines a responsive current pace
Physiological metrics measure your heart to provide:
Stress score: fenix 3 HR measures your heart rate variability while standing still, for 3 minutes, to provide you with an estimated stress level. The scale of this is 1 to 100, low scores indicate lower stress levels
Performance condition: After running for 6-20 minutes, fenix 3 HR compares your real-time condition to your average fitness levels
Lactate threshold: Through analysis of your pace and heart rate, fenix 3 HR estimates the point where your muscles start to rapidly fatigue

Swim Profile, Ski/Board Mode, Rowing and Golf
It's not just for running; the fenix HR can help swim training, skiing, golfing and paddle sports, including stand up paddle boarding and rowing. It tracks your distance, pace, stroke count and more. You just tell fenix 3 HR watch 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. Features for paddle sports include stroke count, stroke rate and distance per stroke. Golf mode gives you yardage to the front, back and middle of the green for any single course you’ve 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
Comprehensive navigation and tracking functionalities guide you 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 records a GPS track log, creating a “bread crumb trail” as you move, and allows you to mark locations, such as a start/finish line, course checkpoint or a campsite, vehicle or other point of interest - you can create and follow courses as well.

Altimeter, Barometer and Compass
fenix 3 HR 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 you’re moving or not.

Stay Connected
Smart notifications² let you receive emails, texts and alerts right on your watch, even if you're on the trail. fenix 3 HR watch receives the wireless signal from a compatible smartphone and lets you know you have a message by displaying the text on its own screen. Other connected features include automatic upload to Garmin Connect online fitness community, live tracking and social media sharing through our free Garmin Connect and Garmin Connect™ Mobile applications.

fenix 3 HR watch 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.

And you can personalise your fenix 3 HR watch with free downloads from Garmin's Connect IQ store - customise your watch face, add data fields and get apps and widgets that provide information at a glance.

fenix 3 HR watch is equipped with both ANT+ connectivity and Bluetooth®³ smart capabilities to wirelessly share locations, routes and geocaches.

Inaccurate Sensors - Design Flaw, 12 March 2017
By James McKinnon (Glasgow)
The look of this watch is fantastic - I absolutely go along with this notion.

Optical HR sensors being untrustworthy is a known flaw with such implementations, with only the Apple Watch being 'best of breed'.

However the GPS (in)accuracy of this watch is galling. I have had 3 of these watches and they are all the same - bad GPS chipset. How would I know this? I review watches (with my own money spent on them) and use a scientific process to analyse them versus a handheld GPS unit.

Although this watch has lots of features the main function of it is simply not good enough for the higher-end cost. I would advise you to search the internet first before purchasing this.

Ask yourself this: What is the point of purchasing a brand and entering an eco-system if the measurements are highly inaccurate?

The GPS points on this map on anything but a long straight road are simply awful.

If you wish to critically review these notions you can use many websites that use scientific analyses, such as FELLRNR - this watch really doesn't do a good job of the basics.

However, if you don't really care about the fact your 20 mile run will be recorded as 18.5 miles (in the open outdoors with no trees!) but you do want a raft of other features, then this is the watch for you.

If you take running and training seriously, this is honestly not the watch for you. Please research and look for the negatives in a product and don't focus solely on the special other features a watch offers.

Top notch GPS sports and smart watch, 22 December 2016
By Phil (Bristol, UK)
I would class this is best of breed. Tried a few similar watches from the likes of TomTom etc and nothing compares to this.


It looks llike a normal watch albeit slightly bigger. Some of the competitor ones are hideous in comparison

An unexpected bonus is the smart watch capabilities. Test/email notifications and Google map directions when navigating from my iPhone are ace.

I like the sleep statistics, although I do treat them with a pinch of salt.

I'm not convinced by the accuracy of the distance logging yet. Might need some calibration. I have a number of Garmin GPS devices and they all suggest different distances and I don't know which is more correct!

The HR device records temperature but it's pretty uselss if you're weating the device as it picks up body heat. I knew before purchasing, and so do you now :)

The built-in HR monitor seems a little variable unless the watch is tight on your wrist.


I can't find of a better sports/GPS/smart watch out there at the moment. Don't think you'll be disappointed.

Garmin software has certainly moved on. Used to be a complete joke, but is now much slicker and works!

Garmin Fenix HR, 30 November 2016
By Bazdonk (Coatbridge)
Just about to return my second watch to the store due to the altimeter not working. Contacted Garmin and it is a common fault. Hopefully the third watch will be okay. Go outdoors have been great replacing my first watch without any hassle.

Great as expected, 19 July 2016
By Radu (Bucharest)
I really enjoy my new watch. Everything works as I've expected, from outdoor tracking to pool swimming to open water and HR measurement. The whole Garmin ecosystem is great (I am new to it). It is a great product to own.
