    The Proof of Your Potential

    fēnix 3 Sapphire is packed with training features to tell you about your form and fitness. The first is the VO2 max estimator. When used with a heart rate monitor¹, fēnix 3 crunches data, including your running speed, beats per minute and heart rate variability to estimate the maximum volume of oxygen you can consume per minute. Track changes to your VO2 max to see your fitness gains and to compare with your peers. Other fitness metrics include recovery advisor with a recovery timer and recovery check, plus a race predictor, which estimates your ideal finish time based on your current VO2 max number.

    All the Numbers to Measure a Runner

    Once running gets serious fenix 3 Sapphire with optional HRM-Run heart rate monitor tracks all the advanced metrics that are needed to better understand and improve:

    Advanced Running Dynamics1 analyse your running:

    • Vertical oscillation and ratio — the degree of 'bounce' in your running motion and the benefit ration to stride length
    • Ground contact time and balance — shows how much time, in the running motion, your foot is on the ground rather than in flight and lets you check your running symmetry
    • Cadence — number of steps per minute
    • Stride length — determines a responsive current pace

    Physiological metrics measure your heart to provide:

    • Stress score - fēnix 3 measures your heart rate variability while standing still, for 3 minutes, to provide you with an estimated stress level. The scale of this is 1 to 100, low scores indicate lower stress levels
    • Performance condition - After running for 6-20 minutes, fēnix 3 compares your real-time condition to your average fitness levels
    • Lactate threshold - Through analysis of your pace and heart rate, fēnix 3 estimates the point where your muscles start to rapidly fatigue

    Tracks Your Performance in Many Sports in Many Ways

    fēnix 3 Sapphire is for the athlete that wants to track his performance in various sports. Beyond running it has also special features that support swim training, skiing, rowing sports, including stand up paddle boarding and even golfing. During swimming workouts fēnix 3 tracks your distance, pace, stroke count and more. Ski/Board mode tracks your entire skiing day with speed, distance, vertical drop and an automatic run counter (with Auto Pause for the lift line) and more, all the data is available at your fingertips at any time. For rowing fēnix 3 provides comprehensive rowing metrics including your number of strokes, stroke rate and even stroke efficiency also make use of the virtual partner during your training. Golf mode gives you yardage to the front back and middle of the green for any single course you’ve downloaded from Garmin Connect™. You can even use your fēnix 3 as a glove-friendly remote, via ANT+® wireless connectivity, for VIRB® action cameras.

    You know your way

    fēnix 3 Sapphire provides comprehensive navigation and tracking functionalities to guide you on and off the beaten track. fēnix 3 records a GPS track log creating a “bread crumb trail” as you move. It also allows you to mark locations, such as a start/finish line, course checkpoint, or a campsite, vehicle or other point of interest. With fēnix 3, you can create and follow courses or mark up to 1,000 locations and navigate to them. Plan trips and share adventures with friends and family using Garmin’s free planning tool BaseCamp™ on your computer.

    More than just ABC sensors

    fēnix 3 Sapphire is equipped with a barometric altimeter and an electronic 3-axis compass. The device auto-calibrates theses sensors using its GPS receiver to provide the most accurate information possible. The built-in altimeter provides elevation data to accurately monitor ascent and descent, while the barometer can be used to predict weather changes by showing short-term trends in air pressure. The 3-axis electronic compass keeps your bearing whether you’re moving or not. For accurate temperature reading from the watch, pair it with our tempe™ external temperature sensor.
