Garmin Fenix 3
For some strange reason in the 80s, a few people (ie. several million, we guess) decided it was cool to wear multiple watches at one time. Thankfully that trend fizzled out, but today’s athletic man is now in a bit of a pickle: Do you wear a fashionable but simple timepiece, or go for a trendy smartwatch that can keep up with your workouts and social notifications? Garmin’s Fenix 3 promises to be your all-in-one solution.
There’s no shortage of bullet points to run down here, as the Fenix 3 measures your steps, distance traveled, calories burned and sleep cycle, but it also provides GPS and GLONASS (a satellite navigation system used in Russia) for more stat tracking, including your pace while running, cycling or swimming. The 1.2-inch sunlight-readable color screen features an LED backlight and a stainless steel bezel. The watch is waterproof up to 100 meters, while the battery is said to be good for about 20 hours with a continuous GPS signal, or up to six weeks in standard watch mode. [Purchase]
