Garmin are stamping their authority on the wearable tech scene by releasing lifestyle/sporting wearables at a rate that none of their competitors are keeping up with.

Back in January the GPS mammoths announced the addition of wrist-based heart rate monitoring to their flagship watch, the Fenix 3. The result is the Fenix 3 HR which the company have just announced is available to buy from today for $599.99 USD with a 2 – 3 week delivery time.

The Garmin Fenix 3 HR is equipped with Garmin’s in-house Elevate HRM technology which in our experience is one of the most accurate optical HRM solutions. The watch is compatible with the Garmin Connect IQ platform; so apps, watch faces and widgets are available for download.

New profiles and metrics have been added to the Fenix 3 HR, including: Paddleboarding, rowing, and more running and workout features are inbound. The Fenix 3 HR is the cutting edge of GPS watches. It will track your indoor and open water swims, pretty much every cycling and running metric under the Sun, and can provide GPS data for around 40,000 worldwide golf courses.

Alerts from your social apps such as Facebook and Twitter; along with emails, texts and incoming call notifications are delivered on the watch’s 218 x 218 color display. It has a solid build-quality and is water-resistant up to 100 meters.. So if you’re looking to spank a mermaid make sure you’re wearing one..

On top of an unrivaled feature set, the Fenix 3 HR looks good enough to burn the boxer shorts off a shaolin monk. The super GPS watch is compatible with Android, iOS and Windows. Find out more at
