Garmin Fenix ​​3 Features and Design

In almost every way, the new Fenix ​​3 is better than last year’s model. The device is thinner and lighter, the 1.2-inch diameter has not increased, and the device itself received a color display with a pixel density increased by almost 10 times. The water-resistance rating has increased from 50 meters to 100 meters, making the watch completely safe when diving or swimming in the pool.

The stainless steel case has five control buttons: three on the left, two on the right. On the left is the backlight control and scrolling up and down. On the right is a button acting as "Enter", the second – as "Back".
