Garmin’s most advanced wearable device, the Fenix3HR, was introduced at CES Las Vegas last month. The Fenix3 HR took Garmin’s Elevate optical HR sensor, and added it to the Fenix3 watch. This watch has been a huge success for multisport athletes, surpassing even the Epix. Garmin Fenix 3 Hr Black Friday Deals 2021 Since then, I have been testing a variety of Fenix3HR versions. However, this review is shaped on runs/rides/activities since the unit started shipping about three weeks ago. It’s the final production unit with the final firmware. Once I’m done reviewing it, I’ll wrap it up again and send it back to Garmin in Olathe (Kansas). I have used it almost 24 hours a day, trying to learn all the intricacies. It has been used for running, swimming, cycling and skiing. I also did general gym exercises. It can also be used as a smartwatch for everyday tasks. Based on this, I have a good idea of how it works and where it fails. This review is a little different.
I will be focusing only on the core features of Fenix3HR that are different than the Fenix3 I have already reviewed. The Fenix3 features a huge feature list. The unit has hundreds of features, which could take many months to go through again. Realistically, 99 percent of these features have not changed since the original edition. Instead of waiting until spring to learn what you already know about the Fenix3, I will just focus on the new information. You can find the Fenix3 Indepth Review if you want to learn more about the Fenix3.

Garmin-Elevate-Family2 It’s a small bump that I honestly don’t feel at all, since that portion of your skin is fairly soft and so for me it’s just not something that I notice. However, there are a few people who do feel sensor bumps from any company. Garmin-Elevate-Family1 When it comes to weight, it’s not terribly different there either. It weighs in at 90g and the original Fenix3 red variant is 83g. However, you can’t use any strap/band system which blocks the optical HRS sensor (at least not if you are concerned about the HR sensor). The Fenix3 Quick Release Kit and fabric/nylon NATO-style NATO-style straps won’t work, as they block the sensor. Both of these will block the sensor completely. You can still use nylon straps but the optical HR readings won’t be available. Instead, disable the sensor by using ANT+ to attach a chest strap. The Fenix3 quick release kit adds the same tracking capabilities as the other Garmin fitness wearables that have optical HR sensors. It’s similar to the Vivoactive HR, VivosmartHR, and FR235.
Garmin provides all the usual daily activity tracking, such as distance, steps, and distance. This is pretty standard. However, the new 24×7 continuous HR monitoring feature has been added over the past few months. It uses the optical HR sensor to monitor your heart rate throughout the day. The unit turns on the green LED sensor several times, then gathers your HR to record it. It uses the accelerometer in order to determine how active you are. It records and updates more often if you are more active. It updates and records less often if you are less active (or sleep less), however. I wrote a whole post on this topic last week. The Fenix3HR acts in a similar way to the FR235 and updates much more often than the VivosmartHR. The battery life is just better. It takes about 1-2 weeks to get approximately 1hr per days of GPS time (more weekends).
On that page, you can see the last four hours of graphical history as well as the 7-day rolling history which displays the average RHR. (See a few photos up).

It’s worth mentioning that the Fenix3HR also adds Intensity minutes, which was added to the original Fenix3 in January. Garmin recently added Intensity minutes to its other wearables. It aims to track your weekly exercise efforts. It is based on the 5-day, 30-minute guidance recommended by many health organizations. In this example, Garmin simply adds up 150 minutes of exercise each week and then allows you mix and match. The widget on the watch will also show this, but by default it is hidden. This means that most serious athletes will be able to hit this goal without much thought. Garmin’s default screen is therefore not visible Garmin Fenix 3 Hr Black Friday Deals 2021 by default. If you are a casual athlete, the 150 minute guidance is a good goal to aim for each week. It is also something that is quite achievable. These workouts don’t have to be difficult.
