If you are in the market for a new smartwatch then it is currently worth checking out the Garmin Fenix 3 HR. Ever since its release the Fenix 3 HR has proven to be a very good option for those looking for a durable and reliable watch. Resulting in a device that is as suitable for the more adventurous user, as it is for the general watch-wearer. Speaking of the more adventurous, while the Fenix 3 HR does offer tracking features, it does not have to rely on GPS. As this watch comes loaded with GLONASS satellite support and therefore will be able to track the wearer's movements in locations where GPS is less receptive.
In addition, this watch also comes loaded with a number of additional sensors which will likely be of benefit to outdoors-users, including a 3-axis compass, an altimeter, a barometer and a thermometer. That is, as well as the more usual sensors, including those for tracking steps, calories burned, sleep, and so on. This is also a watch which is rated at 10 ATM for water-resistance which generally means it should be good in just about all water-related scenarios barring the likes of scuba diving. It is also worth noting the Fenix 3 HR includes the ability to monitor the wearer's heart rate – which is one of the defining differences between this version and the lower-priced non-HR model.
As for the more general specs, the Fenix 3 HR features a 1.2-inch display along with a 218 x 218 resolution, and can be viewed in direct sunlight. Inside, the Fenix 3 comes loaded with 32MB of storage and is powered by a 300 mAh battery. Which the company states will last up to 16 hours when used in GPS mode or up to 40 hours when used in battery-saving mode. When used in 'smartwatch mode,' however, the battery life increases massively as the Fenix 3 HR is then capable of lasting up to two weeks off the back a single charge. Bluetooth is included here, and will act as the main means of connection between the watch and a smartphone (supports all OSes) for general feedback and notifications.
