    Thanks so much for taking the time to put together your outstanding website and these extremely useful videos! I've been a hiker and a backpacker for about 50 years, and I'm fairly comfortable with new technology, but having a guide to these sorts of devices (GPS-enabled watches, inReach communicators, etc.) has been a Godsend. I've done lots of searching on the internet for such information, and your stuff is the best by far. Greatly appreciated!

    (As an aside, I really like the fact that you point viewers and readers to REI. They're a great company, operating with a first-class business model, and I appreciate your allegiance to that sort of operation).

    Hi! I'm a runner. My Samsung tracks the path I have run and tells me roughly how far I've gone based on that. Does this watch have a feature like This? If not can you please recommend something?

    What is more reliable and hard built, the suunto traverse or the Fenix 3? I'm just gonna use it for hiking and wilderness trekking. I don't care much for the fitness apps that the Garmin excels in

    Can the Fenix 3 compare times/distance on previous workouts as you are hiking/running? Basically I want to know if I am ahead or behind my previous time on mountain routes I regularly climb. Does it also give audible alerts? For example, telling you the time you have taken at each mile in the hike.

    Great watch. If you own the Fenix and are on Strava, join the Fenix Users club there: https://www.strava.com/clubs/garminfenixusers

    If say I was out in the field and I have my cellphone with me that has preloaded maps. Is there a way to make a waypoint my cellphone and transfer it to the watch so that I can use the watch to navigate to said waypoint?

    My fenix 3 in hiking sucks, the trail is correct but if i stop, the distance keeps growing, does it happen the same to you? This causes me to have a good few miles more then the reality.

    For hiking : How do you add encumberance weight (pack weight) into the watch to more accurately record fitness statistics?

    Hello. You looks like a man which knows alot about Garmin Fenix 3. I'm very interesting about this model, but I'm worry about GPS tracking accuracy. For way tracking I'm using Endomondo. So, one day I was on the hike trip in mountains with my friend which using Garmin Fenix 3. On the finish we compare our results… Endomondo (as the paper map) showed 25,4 km and the Garmin Fenix 3 – 31,53 km. So, at home I compared our ways on the PC… Feels like the Fenix sometimes det lost. Do you catch sight of it with your Garmin?

    What about a trackback feature like on Suunto?
    If I get lost in the bush, can I just click a button and know which paths I took?

    How do you track sleep and still charge the battery? Don't you leave the watch on the charger overnight? How does that work? Thanks

    Can it show live coordinates? And can I enter a coordinate waypoint into the watch itself or a phone?
