The Fenix 3 Sapphire model is the same thing as the HR model, correct?

I don't think it is. Sapphire has a more durable glass face. If it had HR built in, it'd be called "Fenix 3 HR"

I get different responses to my question. Someone else said the Sapphire is the HR version, i.e., they're one and the same, and others no. I'm going to have to call them. I want the watch that offers the heart monitoring in the watch itself, and doesn't require a chest band, etc.

It does not have built in HR. It's compatible with chest straps. Only the ones with HR at the end of the model name have wrist based HR.

The HR version IS sapphire. It's not the other way a around. So you can have a regular Fenix 3 glass face, or a regular (non HR) sapphire face version

There is
Fenix 3
Fenix 3 HR
Fenix 3 sapphire
Fenix 3 HR sapphire edition

Also keep in mind different straps which is why there are minor price differences for same Watch.

Source: I have two of these and have done extensive research

These are good reviews and really really detailed for 3 and 5.

Sounds like you know these watch pretty well. I mostly want one for hiking so GPS is important for me as sometime I get a little lost on the trail and have to guess my way back. Do you know if these offer some sort of trail tracking and show where you start so you can back track if needed.

This is where I ordered my 26mm strap for my 3 HR (she was running a 20% off Black Friday Sale). Have bought a couple of straps from her store (she's also on eBay). Good quality leather straps for the price.

Yeah, it takes a little getting used to but you get definitely track your route and have it help guide you back if you need to retrace your steps. There are a ton of different apps you can install to it that with help with hiking and training.
