Review Garmin Fenix ​​6 – King Smart Watch Sports

The Garmin Fenix ​​product line has long been an undisputed king in Smart Watch sports. Fenix is the best of Garmin’s devices, from tracking outdoor sports activities to running and even golfing. Not only that, but this excellent product line also has many versions, offering many options suitable for the majority of users such as:

  • Garmin Fenix ​​6/Pro – Standard 47mm version/add music, Wi-Fi, maps
  • Garmin Fenix ​​6S/Pro – 42mm smaller case with slightly lower battery life/add music, Wi-Fi, Maps

Garmin Fenix 6

If you are not a fan of Fenix ​​then surely people will wonder about solar power display technology “Power Glass” on Fenix ​​6X. Still, most real owners or fans of Fenix’s current sports watch will undoubtedly be about this significant change. Although there have been some modest changes to the design of “she,” the most exciting and attractive changes are in advanced tracking modes, making Fenix ​​one of the devices. The wrist fulfills the task of processing the range of data she provides and helping you work better with your core features.

Slim Design And More Optimal

You can hear descriptive words like Slimmer design, bigger screen. That’s what we can imagine on the standard Fenix ​​6. But if you’re looking for a thinner Fenix ​​then choose the 6S Fenix ​​6X for a more powerful sports smartwatch. If you are a lover of durable looks, a bit bunker, in addition to Fenix ​​5, you will get the same things on Fenix ​​6 too!

Garmin continues to add great features to this lineup but still tries to cut some of it to make it rougher and bulkier. Fenix ​​6 still has a size of 47mm and limited changes, making her too big by being equipped with many features. And of course, if you want a smaller and slimmer Fenix, ​​then the Fenix ​​6S version is the best choice for you. Fenix ​​6’s shell size is not significantly thinner than the 5 Plus, but thanks to the 7g lighter weight, “she” will feel much lighter than her brother. This is probably a welcome improvement for a bunker smartwatch.

Improved Screen

The screen of Fenix ​​6 is 17% larger (currently 1.3 inches) than that of the 5 Plus. This means the information is a bit easier on the eyes and can display more (customizable) data fields than its predecessor. For example, around a standard watch face, you will be able to adjust your current eight activity metrics against the previous six; you can glance at the data you want to see at a glance without having to scroll through endless menus. Like most Garmin devices, on-screen gestures are responsive to touch commands. But again, there is no touch compatibility, which Fenix ​​will probably never integrate due to the purpose of this watch as a severe outdoor activity tracker.

Garmin Fenix 6-3

If you’re familiar with Garmin devices, you’ll know screen brightness can be a problem as no AMOLED screen has a backlight, as seen on many other devices. Instead, the company uses a 260×260 resolution, which provides in-pixel memory (MIP) through the light, relying on external light to illuminate when lighting conditions are right and LED backlighting is not bright. Fenix ​​6’s screen glows perfectly under the midday sun despite the blazing sun. With all the information on time, heart rate information, and altitude are displayed.

Let’s Talk About Performance Power

Fenix 6 brings some significant adjustments to a much more intuitive interface. The first is “Widgets.” The same information will be designed into a group so you can effortlessly search and review by accessing the “Up” button on the main screen. It’s not a significant change. Still, it can keep you from being overwhelmed by a lot of information and help you find everything more quickly. The important thing is that Garmin is entirely focused on power management. The amount of battery in Fenix ​​6.

Users can better understand how long this watch will accompany you before becoming a worthless piece of metal. The smartwatch reflects the spare usage time instead of presenting a percentage of the remaining battery life. This seems to be more convenient during your workout or walking. For example, if a 10 percent battery is left, “she” will show this for a few days or hours. Garmin watches are like many other high-end sports watches. They are famous for their ability to provide excellent battery life that will last for weeks and even longer.

But there’s always the fear that good battery life will suffer if you continue adding features like new sensors and playing music. So here is the battery life number for Fenix 6. You will have up to 14 days in smartwatch mode, up to 36 hours in GPS mode, 72 hours in maximum GPS mode, 28 days in GPS operating mode Expedition, and 48 days in new battery-saving mode.

Another way that she can help you use your battery smarter is through the new Power Manager mode. In the settings menu, you can choose from various “Power Modes”. These include maximum battery mode, which will turn off heart rate monitoring, phone notifications, and music, and only use GPS in UltraTrac mode. There is even something that Garmin calls “Jacket Mode” designed for anyone who wears a watch while wearing a jacket (such as skiers). Again, this mode will disable heart rate tracking, music, and notifications.

New Features of the Garmin Fenix ​​6 Series

Runners want to make sure they can adjust the tempo during a race using the new PacePro feature in the Fenix ​​6 Series. After creating a workout plan (on your watch or in the Garmin app), you can keep tabs on the rate you have set. The Pro and Sapphire versions of each Fenix ​​watch also have a storage capacity of up to 32 GB and are preloaded with more than 41,000 golf courses and more than 2,000 ski resorts. This memory is used to download songs to the watch and can be synchronized with Spotify and Amazon Music

Garmin Fenix 6-7

The battery life on the new Fenix ​​6 watch looks pretty monumental, a new power manager that can be customised to the wearer’s needs and lets you see the watch’s sensors and features that affect how much battery life. Besides, the energy-saving mode can be adjusted when you are operating.

ECG sensors: Apple, Samsung, and Withings all have ECG-enabled products, and we will not be surprised if Garmin adds a similar feature to the Fenix ​​6 models. Although there is no official information on this, the leaked images show a curve identical to the ECG curve.

Garmin Fenix 6-8

PacePro: This feature calculates the input data (height, distance traveled, target speed, past speed) to give the suggested rate that the user needs to run on the track. Next, to achieve the set goal. There seems to be a new feature called Tweet PacePro, which is described as speed guidance that is adjusted to each level during your operation, plus VO2 Max adjusted for environment and status estimates.

LTE – Connect without a smartphone: Last year, Garmin released Vivoactive 3 Music (Verizon), which could connect to Verizon with an integrated LTE modem. If you love this feature, then we still have the right to expect Garmin to be equipped on Fenix 6, although this feature is quite a draining battery. And more!

Garmin Fenix 6-9


Fenix ​​6 is not born to compete because the “she” is a terrible choice for outdoor sports watch fans. The Fenix 6 Series has become a sporty smartwatch that feels most comfortable to wear. With its larger screen design, “she” has scored a big plus in the hearts of fans. But is that enough to give Fenix 5 and 5 Plus owners a different look and convert their goals to the Fenix ​​6 series?
