Garmin Fenix 3 Purchase?
Posted 03 August 2017 - 05:31 AM
Anything I should know about smartwatches and the Fenix in general? Should I pass on the 3 and save my money for the 5x? Should I just pass on the Garmin period and stay smartless lol?

Smartless. I flirted with it for a few years, through Samsung and Garmin models. I won a Series 2 Apple watch earlier this year through work and promptly sold it. Unless you really want be up on the latest tweets and such it's not super useful. I was mainly using the watch for fitness metrics, but that fell off pretty quick since, I just started to exercise regularly and sleep regularly, so I wasn't concerned with keeping my hear rate at exactly 85% of max.
I wear a Luminox now. It tells the time and tells it very well.

Every single one of them showed me emails and social media. Most said the alarm feature was their favorite. Almost all said it wasn't really worth the money. Only the geekiest of them seemed to like them enough to say it was worth the money.
Personally, I can't see the attraction other than being in on the earliest models of what seems to be fledgling tech. Maybe in a few years they'll do something I find useful, but not yet.

I have a fitbit, but the only smartwatch-esque functions I use with it are just text and phone call notifications. useful in case my phone is across the room and I want to see whether it's worth walking over and picking it up or not.
As Seen on: M4Carbine.net, GlockTalk, and NCGO.

I have been wearing a Fenix3 HR for about a year now. love it. I bought it to track different types of fitness activities and help keep me motivated. GOVX had a killer sale, so i picked it up as an upgrade from a Fenix2. very happy with it.
