Garmin Auto Sleep Detection

Fenix 3

Fenix 3

Good news… Not only is my new Garmin Fenix 3 Sapphire Performer Bundle on its way to me but Garmin have introduced Auto-Sleep Detection to it as well.

I thought I’d have to wait a while to actually get the watch as it has been proving difficult for Garmin to get hold of enough Sapphire Glass to produce them. I managed to get a good deal on a Garmin Fenix 3 Sapphire though so had one on pre-order and was expecting it sometime towards the end of April. I’ve now been told that it is already on it’s way to me and should be delivered early next week.

On top of that, one of the things I said I wish that it had was slightly better sleep analysis and automatic sleep detection. Originally, you had to put it into sleep mode when you went to bed and then take it out of sleep mode when you woke up. Something I’m sure I would have tired of doing very quickly. Not any more though as DCRainmaker has just informed me that Garmin have now added auto-sleep detection to the Fenix 3.

    Of course, because of the Bank Holiday Easter weekend, this news was a bit of a tease for me. Yes, the watch was on its way to me and not only had Garmin managed to get hold of some Sapphire glass, but they had made the watch, Cotswold Outdoor had it and had already sent it and according to the delivery tracking details it had made it’s way into Wales and was already sitting in a depot in Llandrindodd Wells.

    The trouble with that was that it was going to stay sat there until Tuesday because of the Bank Holiday Weekend. So close, yet so far…… Except for the fact that I was off to my parents house in Gloucestershire for a couple of days so would be passing Llandrindodd Wells on Saturday morning. A plan was hatched, I phoned the delivery company to see if I could collect it from the depot, double checked that they were open on Satruday morning and was told that all would be fine. So, on the way to my parents house on Saturday morning we made a little detour and went to the depot. Unfortunately when we got there it was all padlocked up and no one was at home. I phoned the delivery company from outside the gates and all I got was an apology and an explanation saying that they weren’t aware that the depot was closing over the weekend. There was nothing I could do. I’d come close to getting my new watch, but would have to wait.
