I was interested to get some opinions from those here about possibly returning a Garmin fenix 3 I have, and getting an Apple Watch in it's place. Pricing will work out to be the same, so that is not a factor. I have had the fenix 3 for close to a year, but have not worn it in months. The reason I have the fenix 3 is for cycling, running, and hiking, but between two young children and moving, those activities have not happened much in the last 4 or so months. I also liked wearing it for daily use, but feel as though it may be a bit large for my taste. Further the watch faces and daily capabilities, while adequate, are a little underwhelming. Overall, I really like the fenix 3, but I am wondering if the Apple Watch can do what the fenix did for me, but better. What I really need to know is how good the Apple Watch is at fitness activities such as cycling, running and hiking. For hiking and cycling I will have my iPhone 6S Plus with me, but often will not have cell service. For running, it would be the watch alone. I know I won't get the accuracy of the fenix, but will it be good enough. Will the phone and watch last for an 8-12 hour hike? I assume the GPS will function fine without cell service, since it has in the past. Are there any former Garmin users who have switched, and if so, do you feel the watch with the phone nearby was worth the move? Any thoughts from anyone would be welcome. EDIT: By the way, some of you may remember, I was definitely an Apple Watch hater early on, and honestly, I may still be, I don't know. I am just looking at this fenix that has been sitting for months and wonder if I would get more use out of the Apple Watch.
