composite. The watch face, on the other hand, is protected with not glass, but scratchresistant sapphire. It is also one of the few smart wearables that boast the ability to withstand pressure equivalent to a depth of 100 meters. After wearing it daily for more than a week, the fēnix 3 HR still looks like new.
The fēnix 3 HR is also built for the active you. Fitted into the watch is the ability to track a multitude of activities, including skiing, climbing, running, cycling, swimming, and a whole lot more. This capability can be expanded further with the addition of apps, widgets, and custom workouts. We find that no matter the physical activity or training you wish to put yourself through, there is an option for it on this wearable.
For the adventurous individuals, there is a built-in altimeter, barometer, heart rate monitor, and GPS. With these sensors, you can keep track of where you are, how high you are (compared to the sea level), what's the way home, how hard you're working out, and if a storm is coming.
It also functions as motivator and health monitor. For example, the fēnix 3 HR buzzes if you stay stationary for too long, motivates you to work harder during an activity or sport, while also functions as a sleep monitor. The thing that sets it apart is that it analyzes and dishes out advice once it has gathered enough data.
To fully unlock the potential of the fēnix 3 HR, it has to be paired with a smartphone or a PC. When paired with a smartphone, the watch also functions as a smartwatch, displaying notifications and alerts. Despite not having a touch display, we find that navigating the watch interface using its five buttons, second nature.
Despite all the positives, the price tag on the Garmin fēnix 3 HR is tough to swallow, while the plethora of functions can be intimidating at first.
