    ABOUT THE GARMIN FENIX 3
    And Why We Love It

    fenix-about-pic.jpgIt’s simple: You train hard, so you need a product that can keep up with you. The Garmin fenix 3 is up to the challenge. This is the benchmark when it comes to training watches and is why we consider this watch to be head and shoulders above all others. The fenix 3 is the most rugged and durable multi-sport GPS watch on the market, and can easily adapt to whatever is on your schedule. So why do we love this watch so much? 

      1. The Look & Feel - Have you seen this bad boy? It is a seriously sharp-looking watch - and not just for a fitness watch. For any watch. It sits massively on your wrist and yet is lightweight and comfortable. Be prepared to have friend's eyes light eye with jealousy when they see the fenix 3 strapped to your wrist.

      2. GPS/GLONASS Satellite Reception - GPS/GLONASS is code for ridiculous strong satellite connection. Unlike a lot of GPS units, the fenix 3 won’t let you down with spotty reception. From the Rocky Mountains to Times Square to the hills of Thailand and everywhere in between, this watch has you covered and will provide readings instantly.

      3. Huge, Gorgeous Display - 1.2 inches might not seem like a lot, but wait until the fenix 3 is on your wrist. No longer will you need to worry about finding the right light or time of day to read how much you just crushed your workout. This screen is in absolutely gorgeous full color and is readable in any weather, from the harshest summer storm to those extra sunny days on the golf course.

      4. So Many Activities - This is what makes this watch so good. With such an impressive range of versatility, this watch will be your personal trainer for any activity including running, golfing, hiking, cycling, even hitting the slopes with your skis or snowboard. Whatever you do, the fenix 3 will be right alongside you.

      5. Bluetooth Notifications - You might be stuck in the rough on the 14th hole, but you still want to know when your friend sends you a text message, right? Not a problem with this watch. The fenix 3 receives all of the notifications from your smartphone, so you don’t have to worry about holding your phone in one hand when you’re working out. (You can also turn this feature off should you not want to be bothered on the course...)

     
    These are just our Top 5; the features on the fenix 3 seem nearly endless! We didn't even mention Garmin Connect, the altimeter, barometer, compass, weather, stocks...you get the idea. Should you want more details on these features, read on below where there will be more information than you could ever want to know about this glorious device. Want less details? Here's a quick summary:

    GARMIN FENIX 3 BUNDLES
    What's the Big Deal with a Chest Strap HRM?

    The fenix 3 offers an upgraded bundle for both colors, each of which includes a Garmin HRM-Run (a chest strap heart rate monitor). What's the big deal with a Chest HRM you ask? Here's three benefits of having one:

      1. The Originals Don't Normally Include an HRM - the original models (in Gray & Red colors) have no built-in heart rate monitor, meaning that you won't be able to use the data-gathering Heart Rate functionality of the fenix 3 without the HRM-Run Chest Strap.

      2. Increased Accuracy Over fenix 3 HR (click here to visit fenix 3 HR page) - while the fenix 3 HR's wrist HR technology will certainly give realistic readings, the HRM-Run Chest Strap is going to be more accurate by nature of where it's placed - next to your heart!

      3. Running Dynamics (for the data nerds out there) - by using the HRM-Run Chest Strap you'll be able to more accurately gather data like cadence, stride length and Heart Rate PLUS you'll be able to overlay this data (think: heart rate vs. cadence) to further analyze your activity!

    Here's what is included in each Performer Bundle:

    GARMIN FENIX 3 ULTIMATE GIFT BOXES
    Big Hug Guaranteed After Giving One of These

    case-small.jpgHas someone in your life been salivating over the prospect of getting a Garmin fenix 3 this holiday season? We don't blame them. But as cool as the fenix 3 is, there are a couple great accessories not included in the individual unit packaging which we've included in our Ultimate Gift Box:

    1. PlayBetter Premium Hard GPS Case - you just bought $500-600 watch....protect it! Our Premium Hard GPS Case is lined with soft cloth and high-quality zipper. Inside there is a protective flap (in case you put multiple electronics in there and don't want them to rub) plus elastic netting to hold contents in place (check out the image to the right with a handheld GPS unit plus our adapters).

    2. PlayBetter USB Car & Wall Adapters - never be without a charge again! We know that whether playing golf, hiking, running, biking or just traveling around - batteries always die faser than you'd like, especially when in GPS mode. Now while the fenix 3 battery is extremely impressive, it's always reassuring to have an extra adapter around just in case. Plus it makes a great gift!

    3. Our Awesome Gift Box - you'll receive your Black Gift Box already packed with your fenix 3 and its accessories PLUS an easy-tie red bow (you literally just have to pull a string!) and a bunch of decorative red crinkle paper! It'll make the perfect gift for any occasion!


    Below are the four different versions of the gift box we offer.

    GARMIN FENIX 3 FITNESS METRICS & FEATURES

    fenix 3 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, fenix 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.

    Running Dynamics Features

    fenix 3 incorporates sophisticated Garmin running watch feedback on your running form by reporting multiple metrics. When used with the HRM-Run monitor, fenix 3 reports your cadence, vertical oscillation and ground contact time. These metrics are called running dynamics, and they affect your running economy.

    fåÛÒnix 3 activity listSwim Profile and Ski/Board Mode

    The fenix 3 isn’t just for running; special feature sets help swim training and skiing too. Borrowing from the Garmin Swim™, fenix 3 tracks your distance, pace, stroke count and more. You just tell fenix 3 the size of the pool you’re swimming in and begin your workout. Ski/Board mode puts speed, distance, vertical drop and an automatic run counter (with Auto Pause for the lift line) and more at your fingertips. You can even use your fenix 3 as a glove-friendly remote, via ANT+®, for the VIRB® and VIRB Elite action cameras.

    Navigate Your Way

    No other navigator GPS plus ABC (altimeter, barometer and compass) wristwatch offers you the combined training functions and our leading GPS technology. fenix 3 provides comprehensive navigation and tracking functionalities to guide you on and off the beaten track. Its built-in sensors provide information on heading, elevation and weather changes.

    It 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, you can create and follow courses, mark up to 1,000 locations and store up to 10,000 track points and navigate to them.

    fåÛÒnix 3 altimeterAltimeter, Barometer and Compass

    fenix 3 is equipped with ABC sensors to provide relevant real-time information. 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.

    fenix 3 auto-calibrates its ABC sensors using its GPS receiver and also auto sets the time based on location. For an extremely accurate temperature reading, pair it with our tempe external temperature sensor.

    Custom Apps and Watch Faces

    Personalize fenix 3 with free downloads from our Connect IQ store. You can customize your watch face, add data fields and get apps and widgets that provide information at a glance.

    fåÛÒnix 3 notificationsStay Connected

    Smart Notifications lets you receive emails, texts and alerts right on your watch, even if you're on the trail. fenix 3 receives the wireless signal from a compatible iPhone 4s (or newer) or Android™ smartphone and let’s you know you have a message, displaying the text on its own screen whenever you’re ready to read it. And you can, of course, turn this feature off should you not want it.

      3. We Use the Garmin fenix 3 Every Single Day - our staff has taken the fenix 3 around the world, to the tops of mountains and all around many-a-golf course - and we absolutely love this thing!
