Garmin has expanded its Fenix 3 multisport smartwatches with a trio of new fitness-tracking devices for the wrist. The updated models all include sapphire glass to protect their displays, with versions including a premium variant with a titanium bezel and band, one with easily changeable leather and nylon straps, and a third "HR" model that uses Garmin's Elevate wrist-based heart rate monitoring system that can be used to improve and optimize the wearer's exercise routine.
Garmin has unveiled three new smartwatches and wrist-based fitness devices at CES, devices meant for use with exercise and outdoor activities. The Fenix 3 is an upgrade to last year's GPS watch, while the Vivoactive is a more conventional fitness tracker, and the Epix is claimed to be the first rugged GPS watch of its kind with hands-free navigation.
Garmin is releasing an updated version of its ruggedized Fenix GPS watch, with a number of smart watch-style improvements. The Fenix 2 offers a similar set of features meant for outdoor enthusiasts as the original, except it adds more to its recording capabilities, and is now capable of displaying call and message notifications from a connected smartphone over Bluetooth.
Garmin is introducing another product in its watch-based GPS line. The Fenix Outdoor Watch, aimed at outdoor enthusiasts such as mountaineers and hikers, packs an assortment of instruments including optimized altimeter, barometer, and compass sensors alongside the satellite navigation system.
