Fenix 3 HR Saphir is packed with additional training features to tell you about your form and fitness. The VO2 max estimator 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 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.

Once running gets serious, Fenix 3 HR Saphir with optional HRM-Run monitor 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

Physiological metrics measures your heart to provide:
- Stress score - Fenix 3 HR Saphir 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 to 20 minutes, Fenix 3 HR Saphir compares your real-time condition to your average fitness levels
- Lactate threshold - Through analysis of your pace and heart rate, Fenix 3 HR Saphir estimates the point where your muscles start to rapidly fatigue

Fenix 3 HR Saphir provides comprehensive navigation and tracking functionalities to guide you on and off the beaten track. Fenix 3 HR Saphir 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 Fenix 3 HR Saphir, you can create and follow courses or mark up to 1000 locations and navigate to them. Plan trips and share adventures with friends and family using BaseCamp - Garmin’s free planning tool on your computer.

Fenix 3 HR Saphir 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 the Fenix 3 HR Saphir with our external tempe temperature sensor.

Personalise Fenix 3 HR Saphir with free downloads from our Connect IQ store. You can customise your watch face, add data fields and get apps and widgets that provide information at a glance. 

Fenix 3 HR Saphir is really smart and keeps you in touch with the world – be it through your smart phone to receive Smart Notifications directly on the watch², to automatically save your stats to Garmin Connect throughout the day, or through your WiFi hotspot for seamless updates. If you want to, Fenix 3 HR Saphir even keeps family and friends informed about your whereabouts through LiveTrack.

Garmin, what else.

Für mich die ultimative Sport-/Freizeituhr. Top Design meets top Technology!

Super Service

Super schneller Service! Beste Uhr derzeit auf dem Markt. Mega happy...

Würde ich nicht mehr hergeben

Die neue Fenix ist für mich eine All in One Sportuhr, welche ich 24h trage.
Habe die Herzfrequenz mit der 920 verglichen mit sehr geringen Unterschieden von 0-2 Pulsschlägen. Es lohnt sich auf jeden Fall trotzdem einen HRM Run zu haben, wenn man an tiefe Temperaturen im Winter denkt..

Einfach nur klasse

Seit einer Woche meins und ich bin absolut zufrieden. Meine neue 24 h Uhr
