With summer right around the corner, it’s time to dive into activities that can help you get lean and strong. No matter how you go about building a healthier body, using the right gear can help you reach your fitness goals. The technology you use is just as important, especially when timing can make or break a workout session.
This is where the fenix 3 smartwatch from Garmin comes in. Loaded with a variety of sport profiles, the fenix 3 provides GPS navigation, activity tracking and water resistance with enough battery life to outlast even your most rigorous get-fit activity.
If you’re planning to give stand-up paddleboarding a shot this summer, count on it to strengthen your core muscles and challenge your cardiovascular fitness in a new way. Strap the Garmin fenix 3 to your wrist before you head out to track your stroke count and rate. The GPS function will give you a clear idea of your location if you travel away from the shoreline. With the integrated barometric altimeter, the watch also detects changes in atmospheric pressure, which can hint at potential weather changes.
The fēnix 3 makes a great cycling partner. The watch tracks your speed and day-to-day results as you burn calories and strengthen your lower body. Its sunlight-visible, high-res color Chroma Display with LED backlight allows you to easily review your performance at a glance, so you never have to take your eyes off the road for long. You can also rely on the altimeter, compass and GPS function to monitor your routes.
Increase your cardiovascular capacity and strengthen all of your major muscle groups with open-water swimming. You’ll rely heavily on the fēnix 3’s pre-installed swim profile when you leave the controlled environment of your local aquatic center and head into nature. The fēnix 3 tracks your distance, pace, stroke count and more, which allows you to complete your open-water swim with precision. The watch is water-rated up to 100 meters.
No matter if you’re improving your cardiovascular health by sprinting up a mountain or through the neighborhood, you’ll run confidently with the fēnix 3. This smartwatch tracks your stride length, steps, VO2 max and more to help make your running more efficient. If you’re bouncing too much during your stride, it’ll alert you by measuring your body’s symmetry and tracking how much energy you’re wasting. If you’re into timed runs, the metronome function helps you accurately maintain your cadence.
A quiet, early morning row or an energized outing with your local rowing club will help strengthen your back, shoulders and arm muscles. Use the fēnix 3 to track your stroke count, stroke rate and even distance per stroke. The built-in metronome keeps your rowing rhythm consistent, while the watch’s rugged design outlasts splashes from your oars.
