Optical Wrist-Based Heart Rate Monitor
Measures heart rate 24/7 at the wrist.
Elevate™ wrist heart rate technology measures your heart rate at your wrist 24/7. This gives you the freedom to work out with no additional heart rate strap needed.
fenix 3 HR also records Intensity Minutes. By tracking daily Intensity Minutes, you can monitor your progress against weekly aerobic activity goals recommended by leading health organisations.
There are new activity profiles for golf, stand up paddleboarding and rowing, and you can pair with an optional HRM4-Run chest strap for advanced running dynamics and physiological measurements.
These physiological measurements include stride length, ground contact time and balance, vertical oscillation and ratio, lactate threshold, stress score and performance condition.
Advanced Fitness Metrics
Including running, swimming, cycling, skiing, SUP, Golf, & Rowing.
fenix 3 HR is packed with training features to tell you about your form and fitness.
fenix 3 crunches data, including your running speed, beats per minute and heart rate variability to estimate the maximum volume of oxygen (VO2 max estimator) you can consume per minute. Track changes to your VO2 max 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.
Special feature sets help swim training and skiing too. fenix 3 HR tracks your distance, pace, stroke count and more. You just tell fenix 3 HR 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.
You can even use your fenix 3 HR as a glove-friendly remote, via ANT+™, for the VIRB® and VIRB Elite action cameras.
Altimeter, Barometer & Compass
Stainless Steel EXO™ antenna with GPS + GLONASS support for fast fix and accuracy.
fenix 3 HR 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.
fenix 3 HR 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 our tempe™ external temperature sensor.
Personalise your training team.
fenix 3 HR uses the ConnectIQ platform for specialised software so you can personalise your watch with customised apps, widgets, data fields and unique watch faces that make your Garmin smartwatch even smarter.
You can download apps and widgets that can be tailored to your individual active lifestyle.
The fenix 3 HR will also display smart notifications. These notifications let you receive emails, texts and alerts right on your watch, even if you're on the trail. fenix 3 HR receives the wireless signal from a compatible iPhone® 4s (and above) or Android™ smartphone (Bluetooth Smart versions) and let's you know you have a message, displaying the text on its own screen whenever you're ready to read it.
