GARMIN FENIX 3 HR
R10 499, garmin.co.za
A paragon of wearable tech, Garmin’s Fenix range of GPS watches quickly became essential kit for serious adventure sport athletes. Along with comprehensive navigation and tracking functions, the latest version includes an optical heart-rate monitor (hence the HR) and a litany of modes that provide data on everything from paddling to mountain biking and even SUPing. We took it on a trail run and found, along with the GPS tracking of course, the cadence and stride-length data very useful. And for those who just can’t leave the office behind, it also connects to your smartphone so you can receive messages while on the trail.
