Faster Pace Run Dynamics with my Fenix 3

I posted a couple of months ago about the new Advanced Running Dynamics from Garmin. I essentially said that whilst the new metrics such as Vertical Ratio and Ground Contact Time Balance were interesting in their own right, there wasn’t really much that one could use the information for. The Run Dynamics metrics might tell...

Garmin Fenix 3 Phantom Activities Fix

Recent updates to the Garmin Fenix 3 seem to have introduced some annoying bugs for me and many others. One of the most annoying of these is the addition of loads of ‘phantom activities’ to Garmin connect, and therefore any other tracking services that use Garmin Connect as it’s source. For me, this manifests itself...

Fenix 3 Back up and Restore

I’ve recently had some people asking how to restore their Fenix 3 after performing a master reset. Essentially they had used my preferred Fenix 3 set up post to get their devices just the way they wanted them, but then for one reason or another had to reset their device which meant they lost all...

Garmin Fenix 3 Battery Drain Fix

I love my Garmin Fenix 3 smart watch and without wanting to curse it, it has all been working well. There are occasional software updates for it and these have brought improvements with them since I got the watch. As a watch that I can wear all day long then I obviously use it all the...

SUP Surfing with the Garmin Fenix 3

I managed to squeeze in a nice little SUP Surfing session on Monday and decided to try out the Surf Tracker app on my Garmin Fenix 3. The conditions were nice, a gentle SW breeze and 2 foot surf rolling into the beach at Ynyslas. The sun was shining, the temperature was almost 20ºC but...

Garmin Fenix 3 Set Up

As you may know, I’m now the proud owner of a Garmin Fenix 3 watch. It took a while to get it as it was stuck at the delivery depot for weeks and the two companies that were involved in delivering it (UK Mail and Cooper Carriers) didn’t seem able to communicate with each other, so...

The Apple Watch – Not For Me – I want a Fenix 3

As an Apple Fan-boy, you’d expect me to be excited about the new Apple Watch, but for me it just doesn’t seem to do enough. Now I know that it’s a first generation product and will therefore improve in future iterations. I also know that often Apple products do less than their competitors, or have...
