True Performance Meets True Style.
Garmin Fenix 3 Sapphire is the uncompromising GPS multisport watch designed for athletes and outdoor adventurers. The watch comes packed with multi-sport training, trail running and navigation. It introduces a tough athletic design with quality materials and smart features.
No Matter What You Take On - This is Your Watch!
Garmin Fenix 3 Sapphire is designed to assist people during their sport activities and outdoor life. It supports performance sports like running, cycling, swimming, trail running, rowing, indoor training, cross country skiing as well as triathlon and recreational activities such as hiking, SUP, climbing and downhill skiing and more.
Serious Style That Stands Up to the Roughest Conditions.
The athletic fenix 3 Sapphire features an EXO-Antenna fully integrated into a protective metal bezel and an ultra-strong glass-fibre reinforced housing for extra durability. A sunlight-readable, high-resolution colour Chroma display with LED backlight shows your data clearly in any light. Fenix 3 Sapphire is water-rated to 100 metres and has a battery life of up to 50 hours in UltraTrac battery saver mode, 20 hours in GPS mode and up to 3 weeks in smartwatch mode (all depending on settings).

Garmin fenix 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 monitor (sold separately), fenix 3 Sapphire 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.
Advanced Running Metrics
Once running gets serious, fenix 3 Sapphire with HRM-Run monitor (sold separately) tracks all the advanced metrics that are needed to better understand and improve. Advanced Running Dynamics 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.
Skiing, Snowboarding, Swimming, Golf or Rowing
Beyond running fenix 3 Sapphire supports swim training, skiing, rowing sports, including stand up paddle boarding and even golfing. During swimming workouts, it 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, it provides number of strokes, stroke rate and even stroke efficiency. Golf mode gives you yardage to the front back and middle of the green for any single course you’ve downloaded from Garmin Connect.
Garmin fenix 3 Sapphire provides comprehensive navigation and tracking functionalities to guide you on and off the beaten track. Fenix 3 Sapphire 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 your fenix 3 Sapphire, 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
Fenix 3 Sapphire is equipped with a barometric altimeter and an electronic 3-axis compass. The device auto-calibrates these 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 your watch with the Garmin external temperature sensor (sold separately).
Garmin fenix 3 Sapphire is really smart and keeps you in touch with the world – be it through your smartphone to receive Smart Notifications directly on the watch, to automatically save your stats to Garmin Connect throughout the day. If you want to, your fenix 3 Sapphire can keep your family and friends informed about your whereabouts through LiveTrack. Get even more information through your watch by combining it with one of the many optional Garmin ANT+ sensors like Vector for cycling power, tempe for temperature, HRM-run for running dynamics and more. Personalise your fenix 3 Sapphire with free downloads from the Garmin Connect IQ store. You can customise your watch face, add data fields and get apps and widgets that provide information at a glance.

I also have the forerunner 620 - this is a nice upgrade from that model.
The watch is big, It doesn't look out of place on my wrist, but it could be too large for some women I would think.
Got loads of features and finds the gps really quickly.
The red is a dark red too which looks great with the silver face.
Word of advice, it's more expensive but go for the Sapphire version, I've bumped the watch against all sorts of things and every time I'm glad I've picked the sapphire version otherwise it would already be broken.
Went for a hike somewhere new and used hhe GPS to find our way back, brilliant. Speedy delivery too.
The colours are rather muted. Compared to the Gear S2, which has really nice colours, this looks drab.
Battery life is sensational, although it reduces if you are using the built-in GPS. It'll happily last a week unless you are hammering it with lots of tracked activities on GPS. The Gear S2 lasts a day at most.
It's good at sleep tracking as well. It does this in standalone mode - you don't need to have the smartphone synced with it all night. You merely sync it first thing in the morning and you get a breakdown of light sleep, deep sleep and movement during the night. Marvellous.
Overall, very pleased with it, but I switch to my Gear S2 if I want a better looking watch with a touch screen. It is very expensive, but it does the biz if you are interested in tracking lots of activity information. You do need to download the free Garmin Connect app to your smartphone, but that's usual these days.
The only issue is with GPS. In 80% of locations, synchronizing gets stuck in red just one bar before full sync and you have to wait 15-20 minutes for it to finish. I have tested it outdoors in at least 30 different geographical locations in 4 different European countries and the problem persists.
I have updated software many times but the problem still persists. It is frustrating to wait outdoors for 15-20 minutes before every running training.
That's why I give it only 3 stars.
It is a big watch face but looks stylish and it’s not too heavy - in fact it’s lighter than my normal day watch.
That the fenix 3 charges on the go (if you have a power bank) means I don’t need to worry about it lasting the distance I’d i chose to attempt an ultra marathon in the future
Bought as a refurbished watch and it was perfect no marks at all.
