What I like the Fenix 3 over 920 is its shape. It is thicker than the 920, but not that much, and it is definitely much thinner and slimmer than the Fenix 2. And Garmin has learned from modern laptop design, that the edge of the watch is thinner than the center, therefore when you put the watch on the wrist, it looks thinner than it really is. It is a little heavier than 920 as well, but you'll get used to it in 1 or 2 days. I've attached 2 figures comparing the FR220 and the Fenix 3.
The display is as good as 920, and maybe its my illusion but I think it is actually better than 920, the color is sharper and more vivid. The 3-field or 4-field looks great in the round face. All fields are carefully adjusted and can be seen clearly even when you are on your bike and mount it on the bar.
I put in 920's review that I hope Garmin can integrate functions like stop watch and timer, and direct access to compass and altimeter, etc. Seems my voice was heard :) Now directly from the watch face, without going into any activity, I can see compass, altitude, air pressure, and some more data, which is great.
Function-wise, I have tested running, cycling and swim, all in door which do not involve GPS, it worked well. It connects to my iPhone 5, and every time my iPhone get a new msg or email, it vibrate and display the subject and first several sentences on the screen, which is really useful under situations reaching the phone needs some effort, for example, when you are driving and phone is in your bag or pocket, or when you are in a meeting.
It's price is $50 higher than 920, but I think it worth it. 920 is more like a toy, plastic all around and I always worried that I may scratch it, for example, when I put my duffle bag into the locker and hit it on the edge or door. But with Fenix 3 I don't need to worry this. And personally, I am really happy with my rubber band, and do not think the metal band any necessary, I think I'm going to order a red band, which looks really nice.
All in all, for those who like the updated functions brought by the 920XT but do not like its square face, Fenix 3 will be your definite choice. And I am happy that I have a GPS smart watch that I can wear every day.
This is my first running watch and the second activity tracker (first was a Fitbit One). I really like the fact that this takes care of step counting, run / bike tracking, and smartphone notifications all in one good looking (if slightly big) watch.
The GPS seems very accurate and it's easy to set up screens for displaying information during activities. I'm a fairly novice user of exercise watches, but it seems to work well and it is infinitely better than using run-tracking apps on a smartphone. The heart rate monitor is fairly comfortable and worked perfectly. It is even already paired with the watch out of the box.
The watch faces and custom data fields are a bit lacking at the moment in the connect IQ store, but most of the essential stuff and a couple decent watch faces are included by default. The UI and menus are fairly intuitive and even as someone whose never used a garmin product before, things make sense. I'm hoping the watch face collection improves over time though.
Notifications and pairing with the smartphone work as expected and the notifications are actually more useful than I expected. I've had a couple issues syncing (to update watch faces and fields from the Connect IQ store) but things seemed to work itself out somehow. A recent firmware update may have helped in this regard.
Battery life seems very good. After a day with lots of syncing and playing with the watch and going for a two-mile run, the battery was still at almost 90%. The screen is always on and pretty sharp. It can be a bit washed out from some angles, but this type of screen can always be on and not suck all the battery, so that is a good trade off in my opinion. (With Android Wear and Apple Watch, most of the time you have a black screen on your wrist and still have to charge it every day, which seems pretty lame to me) The backlight works great at night and is customizable in how it behaves.
The watch is definitely large, but fits comfortably on my small-to-average size male wrist. With the rubber strap, it is pretty light (much lighter than my much smaller diameter mechanical watch with metal band). The height of the watch can catch on shirt cuffs, but even wearing it with a dress shirt and suit the last couple days, it hasn't been too bothersome. The is definitely a watch most men can wear comfortably on a daily basis. (For women on the other hand, it may be too big, especially with petite wrists).
To sum up, a nice looking watch with lots of great functionality that is big but not too big for wearing comfortably.
It is truly a combination of sports/GPS/ABC/health/dress watch all in one.
I did have an issue with the compass on the first week of owning it. The compass froze on a heading. I was able to resolve it by doing a reset on the watch. Have not had the problem since.
Very little apps
Difficult working on microsoft, but works great on apple products.
1. D-Fly gear indicator compatibility
2. Varia radar integration
3. Varia Vision integration
All three add to safety!
1. I am going to post some on-the-fly updates that I will change from time to time. So, today, my watch had trouble when you pause during a ride. Either I was taking too long, or it "saves" and ends the activity automatically, or it experienced a reset. Either way, I lost about 2/3rd of my ride. These things happen, but just never to my Edge 800. Maybe I should have gotten the Epix?
2. GPS is working fine. But I've had to turn off some latent features to make sure the battery does not drain. Nothing bad.
