Our Ultimate Holiday Wish List: Garmin Fenix 3 Sapphire

For the active and outdoorsy person on your list.

The Fenix 3 Sapphire combines Garmin’s sports-watch know-how with smart-watch-style notifications. Thanks to GPS and satellite navigation plus tracking features, it’s best suited to athletes who venture off the beaten path, but advanced metrics for things like stride length, vertical oscillation, and oxygen intake should come in handy for serious runners everywhere. When connected to a compatible smartphone over Bluetooth, it will also display e-mails, texts, and other alerts directly on the sunlight-readable watch face.
