Fenix 3 Update

I'm liking the Fenix 3 more and more. I hadn't been expecting it to be a "smartwatch" in the tech sector sense, ie emails, calendar etc. and it is. Garmin have just updated the firmware to allow interaction rather than just alerts. I have not played with it a lot yet, but I was able to reject a call by pressing a button on the watch.

Afraid though that the hope for open water swim accuracy is still a bit off. I hit the mountain bike at 6:40a.m. today, biked down to Barton Springs, with coffee and MP3 headphones,as always, one of the runners yelled at me to hold the handlebars, what happened to individual responsibility?

I did my 8x lengths and got 2,231yds. It wasn't pretty, but my swim stroke is getting stronger. You can see the full activity here. The following shows the accuracy of the Fenix 3 in open water... I'd swim down the right side of the pool, turn at the wall swim across and back up the other side. I didn't get out at all, honest.
