If you are an average consumer who doesn't take working out too seriously, but does it every now in then to stay fit- get the Apple watch. if you are an athlete, or serious about your training and value statistics, get the Fenix.

The apple watch is a watch I can wear to work and then go straight to training without being concerned with charging a watch I dont wear all the time. With garmin I always forget to charge it before heading to training.
What bugs me with apple is the inability to export data from health app to other services and the fact that swimming with apple watch means I cant transfer the swimming session to strava!

Any idea what watch I should get, to pair with a Polar H10 chest strap, to be able to see my heart rate continuously? I have atrial flutter that converts to rapid ventricular rate, and I need to know when that's happening.

Let feature kills the whole conversation for me. It’s the main reason why I’m looking into a smart watch for the true independence from a phone when training, outdoor activities, and etc.

Maybe the Garmin 645 Music would have been a better comparison. It includes music storage, Garmin pay and is less money (3 of the reasons to choose the Apple watch).

I chose the Garmin Fenix 3 HR after doing a lot of research and looking at several of these watches in Best Buy. For me, I just didn't get what the Apple watch was supposed to be or who it was for (except for fashion or being trendy). I run 50+ miles/week, and the functionality of the Garmin watches just blew the Apple watch away. If you like going to the gym and doing general keep-fit type stuff, then I think the Fitbit will be enough for you (Fenix may be overkill for you). If you are a runner, swimmer, or do triathlon, Garmin is the way to go. Also, why can't Apple make a watch battery that lasts for more than half a day? My Garmin lasts many days with moderate daily gps usage.
David Gene Lee

Difference. Apple watch are for those who want to look like they are 'working' out at the gym but mainly stare at their phone and Fenix for those who actually workout at the gym and just want notifications as a convenience.

I say that apple watches are better for design, apps, and UI, but for Garmin, it's good or running, walking, activities, and accuracy. They are really different in many ways.
Pablo Benito

Couple of comments (I own both). Sleeping with the Garmin due to its size is not comfortable. Apple ha excellent apps for sleeping tracking, with tons os details. I personally think that the main advantage of garmin is design (this is relative), hardness and batery life. Apple watch gets charged really fast so I don,t think this is a problem.

I've got the Apple Watch series 2 and the Garmin Fenix 5X...like you said, the AW 2 is great for smart watch features and it's not as bulky as the Garmin, but it's not built as well as the Garmin. I love the features on both watches, but you just can't beat the looks, feel and ruggedness of the Garmin. Great review

Hey @Rizknows. Help here needed. I love the apple watch, the functionalities, design and that I can take it on the go without the phone. However, I am very active and all the sports features for the fenix 5 seem to fit perfectly. I do triathlons, and golf (Which apple watch sucks at tracking). So I'm in need of a hybrid apple/fenix5.
I want a watch that I can take to the office, but when I train I can go phone free and just track everything while music playing as well. Recomendations? thnx buddy great video btw

Steve Phares

Love my Garmin! BUT I would like an Apple as a secondary watch just for the LTE, Apple Pay type features. Only hang up with me from getting it, you can't bring your step count / HR / Calorie daily stuff from Apple into Garmin Connect. So until they figure out how to play nice and let that info sync from HealthKit into Connect (which will probably be never), I guess I'll never own an Apple Watch.

Same as me. My V800 after 3 years looks like an onion with no skin. Don't know why. Is a good a d accurate sport watch, but I think the material they used is not the best quality. Not mention the problems with connection and data transfer to the PC.

ComPH2
ComPH2 - 3 years ago
Excellent review. I'd like to add couple of notes. first, there are many apps on the Apple watch, so that for example sleep tracking can be at least as accurate as what the Garmin Fenix provides. There will always be lot more apps for the Apple watch, some really great ones, e.g. Strava, etc. etc. Since it has almost all of sensors and interfaces on board, getting the same functionally as the Fenix is "mere matter of software" that can be added later. Chances of more and more sophisticated software on the Apple are much higher than for the Fenix - there is much bigger market and profit potential. The only thing the Apple doesn't have is an ANT+ interface, which could be converted externally to BT. Of course the Apple has an excellently implemented LTE. The battery on the Apple watch is marginal for anything that takes longer than 3-4 hours, when the LTE, GPS and HRM are running hard and concurrently, the LTE could be switched on just in case of emergency and save lot of battery energy. It really isn't enough for most marathons or triathlons with all the functions on. Finally, the display on the Fenix is way easier to see than on the Apple in the daylight.

You've said many times you prefer the round design of the Garmin; but, you've never addressed 'WHY'. Is it based on aesthetics or functionality? Combination of both? With the major advantage of apps on the Apple Watch, I strongly disagree.

If you pay for Strava or Endomondo anyway, then Apple watch might be an option but the way I look at it, Garmin comes in a bundle with a great workout website that gives me all possible stats. I don't have to pay for Strava to analyse my workouts.

I’ve had Garmin Fenix 5 for about a couple of months, I sold it for the Apple Watch 3 and not looking back. I was with Garmin for years. I loved it but I’ve always hated the lack of phone notifications. Apple Watch may have some delay on heart rate but it technically replaces my phone. Music, notifications, price, etc. When it came to workouts and battery the Fenix 5 was good.

David Gene Lee
David Gene Lee - 2 years ago
jacopo ceccato from my understanding the Garmin Fenix 5 doesn't update HR every second when not in an activity. Therefore, same with the Apple watch, you have to wait till the next interval to see the updated HR. Different story if you're doing an exercise, then it is recording HR every second. Please correct me if I'm wrong. I wish HR was recorded and shown on the watch in real time like Fitbit products.
jacopo ceccato
jacopo ceccato - 3 years ago
EVERYONE knows that the heart rate on the wrist is not accurate. If you do sport seriously you will use the cardio band, right?
Using the band connected to the bluetooth the heart rate is not immediate updated and you have to keep your wrist raised several seconds to read the correct frequency. This makes the applewatch unusable.
So, as you see, I'm very informed, maybe you're the one who has to run more
Tim Macchiarelli
Tim Macchiarelli - 3 years ago
yeah but when you use the apple watch and turn your wrist to look at it, it will turn on, and you can customize your watch face so that your heart rate is always displayed to you. So the things you said that about the Garmin having that Apple doesn't aren't true, fact check yourself before complaining.

Can anyone help me find the running watch I need?
I would like a good running watch with:
* Good HR and GPS like Garmin or similar.
* Spotify or at least a music player.
* Strava connection or a good app/site to plan runs on.
* HR zone monitoring
* A good display would also be nice because I like running at night.
I can´t find any watch that seems to fit my needs... If anyone could help me I would be very grateful!

The Day Riz goes with anything (Personally) over the Fenix i will buy that device. I've been watching since the Fenix 3 non GPS launched and his activity level and input on the device sold me on getting the 3 GPS Sapphire at black Friday last year. Fortunately that meant a 325$ price point due to the 5 being on the horizon and the length of life it had already undergone. I did manage to kill my first one from going hot tubing and then running around in sub freezing conditions (at least that what i think killed it) . since my replacement one was received shortly after (cuddos to Garmin on customer service) I have been issue free. These watches are built for abbuse and they have more trackers (third and first party) than most people will ever use.

I love my Apple Watch but it’s not super accurate for running. I ran 8 laps 2 miles and it will says 2.08 at the end of it. My old garmin would say 2.01 . It’s small enough to annoy you. I have the series 3 with lte and I’m gonna test it off a track and with the built in app instead of the Nike running app to see if it helps any.

ajay ashoka Hi. The Apple Watch syncs automatically to health and for Garmin, it works as any other app that syncs to Apple Health, you set it up when you install the app. Then, from Apple Health you can select which information you want Garmin to read and write from and to Health.
With the latest versions of iOS and Health Kit, Apple now does a great job identifying which information is duplicated (in case you run with both watches or use another running app in your phone).

6:20 dont forget hiking, skiing, snowboarding, swimming pool & open water, rowing, golf, and trail running <- nails all of these. Especially hiking in my opinion

I would personally LOVE to get a Garmin Fenix 5 over an Apple Watch. But that +$600 price point keeps me away.

I just got the forerunner 935 and am so happy with it, and less money than the fenix 5. Mind you I am very into the sports tracking aspect of the watches

Fenix 5 HR monitor copes with tattoos. Apple Watch really struggles. Probably only impacts a minority, but I found it annoying that my Apple Watch constantly decided it was no longer on my wrist. Garmin doesn't have a problem.

Useful video young Jeff. Still a coin toss for me. Garmin really missed a trick with music storage, literally the only feature that lets it down and would sway me towards apple :(

Garmin Uber Alles. But if the intent is to untether, why are you buying something with an LTE chip? Just go get a Timex.

The Apple Watch does have sleep tracking. Auto sleep app does it automatically. I sort of feel your videos have been rushed lately and you’re not spending a lot of time with the product to get to know it.

I wish the Apple Watch tracked running cadence. I’d like to see a more in-depth with review between the Apple Watch 3 and the vivoactive 3. Thoughts after 30+ days with the two.

The apple watch still can't track Running Cadence though.

I was pleasantly surprised with this review. In the past you were never a big fan of the Apple Watch and I thought this would be another “hit piece”.. I think you nailed it with this review and anyone considering the two watches doesn’t need to look anywhere else!

Awesome Job!

I chose a Garmin over Apple Watch specifically because of the Battery Life (Forerunner 35, not Fenix 5).  If Apple wants more runners going with their product, they need to improve that battery life!

also they need to improve the gps signal. i am an apple watch owner and i love it but they need to seriously improved gps and battery to kill every other smart watch

Of course I'm with the Fenix 5 specially the X series ,,
It's amazing a lot of features ,
But really its expensive , but it deserve it

Another good reason to get Garmin 5X, for those who need it, are the offline maps and better features for the trail. It's more like an handheld GPS, where Garmin is the best. For hikers and trekkers like me, the extended battery life, robustness and incredible visibility of the display at bright sunlight is great. Also, the touchless user interface is a feature ( believe or not) for adventures. When wearing gloves or if you are all wet or dirty, this is much better. To access features when walking is much easier to just press a button. To use maps with zoom and pan, though, touch would be better.

Augusto, not sure what you problem is with battery life , I get away with charging it right after waking up within 50min before I leave to work :) So I wear it 23h a day no problem (not using LTE but it's the LTE series 3)

If only this was true. I'll explain, they are build very good but you see, the problem with my Fenix 3 is that after 2 and a half years the battery is not holding like before. Tbh it is halved.. it lasts not more than 6 hours! I truly hope that my Fenix 5 will be better after 2 years of time.. and as we know very well, Garmin does not sell or change batteries, instead they will make you buy a refurbished unit for less! This is brutally stupid but I cant do anything to change that. Still way better for sports if you are serious than this phone brands gimmicks with 1 day or even less than 8 hours of proper full time GPS marathon use.

Just like with a regular watch, if you buy quality you won't have any need to replace it in a year or two. The Garmin watch is a long term sports watch that has everything you could possibly need and won't need to be replace for probably 5 or more years.
Maverick5588
Maverick5588 - 3 years ago
Fuckitman i have the fenix 3 and i plan to have it for a very long time. Not much changed with the new version. Moreover if you do lots of sports it really is a necessary thing to have a good watch. It does mean the watch is for a specific sort of person though. The saphire glass on the fenix is also a major major plus, again especially if you do sports and inadvertently bang the watch around you basically need saphire glass. Overall, garmin fenix 3, 10/10 would buy again.
