Testing the Garmin Fenix 3 HR around Derwent Dam

We came for a walk around Derwent dam and I decided to give the Garmin Fenix 3 HR a test run using the navigation feature.

Setting up the Garmin Fenix 3

Creating and loading the loading the GPX track was fairly simple, however this is covered in this article. Once the GPX track was loaded we set off on our adventure around Derwent Dam.

Navigating with the Garmin Fenix 3

The navigation was very simple and whilst it does not show a map it like a GPS walking device it does show you a route and your current location on that route. What I found nice is that the watch would beep to let me know if you was off route

Sharing the route from the Garmin Fenix 3

Getting the finished course off the device after was a breeze and all done through Garmin connect and then I was able to export the GPX to Strava and other applications I chose to use

Great bit of kit
