This is the best watch I have ever owned.

I am suprised how long the battery lasts. I have owned several gps watches with additional HR strap, they used to last a day or so. This is a bloody terrific watch. The delivery time was outstanding.

Pros: Aesthetically pleasing, some extra features I had not thought of - ie sunset and sunrise mode.
Cons: Nothing noted so far.

Great bit of kit

I've been umm-ing and ah-ing about getting a fenix for a while. A couple of weeks ago I bit the bullet and got this 3-HR. I'm so impressed with the build quality, the comfort and, above all, the battery life. I wear the watch 23.5 hr/day and barely notice it's there. The band is sturdy and the face is still pristine. However, the thing that I'm most impressed with is the battery life. I've done at least one GPS-tracked activity every day and have had the Bluetooth sync running all the time and have been getting 5-7 days of battery. This is so much better than any smart watch I've owned in the past. Other things I'm appreciating are the wide range of apps and watch faces available, the SDK so I can write my own activities and watch faces and the fact that there's a native Windows app that runs on Windows Phone as well as Windows 10.

Pros: Excellent build quality, astounding battery life
Cons: Sometimes takes a little long to get a GPS fix

So happy with this device.

Works well for all activities that I have used so far (run, cycle, cardio and strength training.) Highly recommend this device. Super rugged but refined to use and wear. The ability to change bands for formal events is a great feature as well with the different watch faces available via the app.

Great device, perfect for all my tracking needs.

Got this under the tree for Christmas and have used it for a variety of sports since. It really is a set and forget device that does everything you need it to. Once you set the device with your stats and link to your PC, laptop and smart phone, automatic syncs do the rest and you see how you are progressing with your health goals. I have had Garmin and Suunto previously and Garmin always wins hands down.

Pros: All in one device.
Cons: Screen can be difficult to read indoors.

Outstanding Device

The Garmin fenix 3 HR is a remarkable fitness tool. It's great strength is its overall functionality and ability to provide meaningful metrics on your physical fitness activity... couples with an accurate GPS ability and heart rate monitoring. If it could measure heart rates in water like the MIO Alpha - it would be the stand out sports/fitness/training device.

Pros: Brilliant functionality
Cons: It would be great if it measured heart rates in the water - like the MIO Alpha
