Garmin is one of the many companies busy in Las Vegas, showing off their latest products at the CES 2016. As a leader in GPS technologies, Garmin has just introduced more multisport watches as additions to the Fēnix 3 collection. The new watches boast of sapphire-lens and with different bezel and band options including a titanium version.
Garmin’s latest smartwatches are ideal for those trying to live a more fit and healthy lifestyle. It’s a new year so perhaps a lot of people are looking for new gadgets to use and hopefully, get them moving. The latest Fēnix 3 multisport watches include Garmin’s very own Elevate wrist-based heart rate technology plus an updated software. The latter adds more activity profiles for those who are into other sports like running, rowing, stand up paddleboarding, and golf. You see geeks, walking and running aren’t the only sports you can do.
Making the Fēnix 3 line popular aren’t just the features. The watches are also stylish. They look trendy, not too geeky–cool enough to wear everyday in the office or wherever your active feet will take you. Feel free to change the leather and nylon bands easily to suit your style and mood although the titanium bezel and band already look very nice.
The addition of heart rate monitor to the Fēnix 3 makes it a more worthwhile fitness and health tracker. New metrics have been added: Stride Length, Performance Condition, Stress Score, Lactate Threshold, Vertical Ratio, and Ground Contact Time Balance.
Note that the Garmin Fēnix 3 models are still compatible with Connect IQ platform. These Fēnix 3 models will be available starting at $599.99 (Fēnix 3 HR/Fēnix 3 Sapphire with leather and nylon bands). The titanium Fēnix 3 Sapphire will be more expensive at $799.99.
All watches can also be synced with a compatible Android mobile app, the Garmin Connect Mobile which can be downloaded from the Google Play Store.
