Garmin Fenix 6 Series: Features
The Fenix series from Garmin has always been about the highest level of outdoor performance. With the Fenix 6 Series, Garmin is taking that performance output a notch higher. The Fenix 6X Pro Solar is the first GPS smartwatch from Garmin to offer solar charging. It is designed with Power Glass which is a transparent solar charging lens. This means users will have more on-wrist time to track their activities or stream music. The wearable is rated to last for up to 21 days plus an additional three days with solar charging capabilities.
The Fenix 6 and Fenix 6X feature a rugged, sophisticated design with a 1.3-inch and 1.4-inch sunlight-readable display respectively. The Fenix 6S sticks with the 1.2-inch display seen on its predecessor. They bring PacePro which keeps a runner’s pacing strategy on track. Runners will be able to create plans directly from the watch or ahead of time using the Garmin Connect app. They also bring improved power manager to see and control various settings and sensors that impact battery life.
Other easy to access features include built-in activity profiles and VO2 max estimates. They also support training status with adjustments for heat and altitude. All the models include enhanced wrist-based heart rate for all-day stress tracking, underwater wrist-based heart rate for swimming and Pulse Ox blood oxygen saturation. Users can also get alerts on these wearables including for calls, text, emails and other applications. These wearables also include Garmin Pay, a contactless payment solution, which eliminates the need to carry cash or cards.
