The Fenix 3 and Fenix 3 HR are a significant of upgrade especially in the smart watch functionality. If you're just looking for a fitness watch look at a 620 or fitbit's offerings.
I wouldn't get this watch again. The altimeter does not work. I zeroed the watch at sea level and went to known elevations and this watch was off by hundreds of feet.

The battery was drained quickly by the GPS function so not use able for long all day hikes.

Garmin is foremost a GPS company. I have a Forerunner 405 from about 8 years ago. The battery level no longer works, but if i charge it for about an hour, I can easily do a 2 hour run and the watch will still for another days.

The original price on it as lie $350 or something but with the 35% bing cashback and 10% ebay promotion i think the final cost as in the $190 range.

I've tried using my phone for GPS running apps, but I love that I can glance down at the watch to confirm im maintaining my pace and distances etc. The phone as just a pain to hold in my hand, or remove from armband.

If you aren't an avid athlete and using for that, it's more a fitness watch with a few smart features.

Most of the smart watches are "smart watches" (gadgets and gizmos) that have minor fitness functionality. Yes I realize there are apps coming or smart watches and the market will continue to mature, but knowing I don't have to charge my watch every other day but rather once every two weeks is much more convenient for me.

This watch has been $160 used for at least 4 months on various websites (Amazon, Best Buy or Buy.com). I know because 2 other training partners ordered them. One guy about months ago and the other guy about a month ago. So this seems to be the refurb pricing.

I'm just a little weary of a used atch without a replacable battery. I bought a $21 casio for work rom schnoop and sometimes it ust turns o or no apparent reason.

This isn't really a "smart watch". A very solid training device, but the battery life when you turn on notifications is really short.

Buy this if you need a really solid run/swim/bike device and are willing to invest in some heart rate sensor bands, first and foremost. Or have HRM or similar bands already.

I just feel that the description/title is misleading.

Ordered one. Definitely too heavy for a pure running watch, but I think I do enough other activities to justify this, especially at this price.


If all you do is run on the road, get a 630 or a 620.

Same here - I have an older model Garmin watch (310xt) which I have setup with 4 fields to monitor time, distance, average pace, and current pace. Easy to see on my wrist. I wouldn't want to carry a phone for that.

Probably there is a divide between the more casual type users, and the more hardcore in terms of these watches. For example, while running the last thing I want is for my watch to start emitting alerts from a cell phone. I don't get the allure of that at all. Going all out on a training run, I would smash the watch on the ground if it started bugging me with texts, lol. But if out for a leisure run screwing around or at the gym maybe, then I could see a user being interested in that sort of feature.

I have the Fenix 2 and fenix 3 HR. Both are great sport watches. Inside them for running, skiing, biking and hiking. They do txt msg notifications.

I have this watch. I took it hiking for just short of 400 miles so far this year. How long it lasts running GPS depends on the interval. At 10 minutes it should give you 4 solid 12 hour days of hiking. Doesn't take much batter power to recharge it either. My biggest problem with it is it can be erratic getting a location under tree cover. Makes it pretty hit or miss on the AT, but was great on the PCT.
