No, you haven’t stumbled onto the wrong section of Craigslist – we mean big, burly watches. We ask because the even after making it thinner, sleeker, and more attractive, Garmin’s flagship fenix is still a BBW.
While there’s no hiding its size and ruggedly handsome design, the fenix 3 sneaks in a long list of features — many of which have never been seen together in one Garmin watch before. In addition to the usual GPS, barometer, and compass, the fenix offers smart notifications, counts steps, logs calories burned, and records sleep just like Garmin’s VivoFit and Vívosmart fitness trackers. It can upload data to the Garmin Connect website via Wi-Fi (without a computer), and download apps from Garmin’s Connect IQ Store via a compatible smartphone. It may be large, but there is very little that this watch can’t do.
