This was between $399-449 for the better part of November and December. Also, the new Fenix 5 is out soon. Because of those things, this is not a good deal.

Agreed. I got mine at REI on a slick deal for $399. I'll be selling it in March to upgrade to the 5X. And you'll see the price on the 3HR fall more soon.

Haha! I know, it is because the sound of "4" in Chinese is similar to death or something so Garmin skipped 4 and went right to 5. Before you criticize someone next time on their information, it would be a good idea to have your own right. Smilie

Yep Garmin skipped version 4 apparently for the reasons you mentioned. The Fenix 5 is interesting given the three different sizes that will be available (5x, 5, 5s), compared to the Fenix 3 which is a rather large watch for some persons usage. Although the msrp on the Fenix 5 versions seems quite steep. So while this $482 Fenix 3 price is not a deal, the high price of the new Fenix 5 model might prevent the Fenix 3 from falling very low in price. For my part, I ended up going last month with a 920xt black/grey version which I got for a nice price.

I google and was able to read up on why no Garmin 4. But how does Garmin know about this 4 number thing? Its funny. They must have some chinese influence?

I too avoid the number 4. My parents too.

I am thinking of getting the Garmin 5. I will wait a few months for the price to come down a little. I hope.
