Fix for Garmin Fenix Not Turning On

This fix for a non-responsive Garmin Fenix 3 that I’m about to explain may not work for all situations but it seems to have helped me. The other day, my Garmin Fenix 3 that I love just decided not to turn on. I went to start a workout, saw the screen flash on and off...

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...

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...

Surf Tracker App 7

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...

Garmin Auto Sleep Detection

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...

More Bargains with Quidco

I took the plunge the other day and ordered the Garmin Fenix 3 watch that I’ve been wanting for a while to replace my Forerunner 910XT. It’s a ridiculous amount of money for a watch, especially as I wanted the Sapphire Glass version with the new ‘Run’ Heart Rate Monitor Strap, but it’s nice to treat…
