Description

The Fenix 6 is a great example of Garmin’s position as one of the best smartwatch makers out there. Whatever’s thrown at it, expect it to handle with ease and with great accuracy, no matter where you are and what you’re doing. For instance, you can now fit eight activity measurements of your choice around the edges of the circular watch face screen instead of six, thanks to the slightly larger screen real estate. This allows you to see more of your data at a glance without having to scroll through endless menus. The resolution upgrade also means data is just that tad bit sharper, which helps a lot with this kind of display.

Across the board, these battery improvements are plentiful when compared to the Fenix 5 Plus. And - as mentioned earlier - these have largely been achieved via tweaks in the Fenix’s software which make management much more intuitive and allow users to better understand what kind of power they have remaining. This has been changed in a number of ways. In short, if you’re a steady runner then you’re likely to be happy with the accuracy of the wrist-based HR. We found good results versus a chest strap across runs of all distances.

The Garmin Fenix 6 is the best multi-sport watch money can buy

Fixed an issue where the heart rate graph may intermittently display a flat line during an activity.

There's a new forged metal guard around the start button on the Garmin Fenix 7, which is designed to protect it from damage and help prevent accidental presses. Again, like the non-solar Fenix 6 it has a non-touch 1.3-inch, 260 x 260 resolution, MIP screen and physical button control system. The system works exactly the same way as the Fenix 6 Pro. This lets you navigate the watch’s menus using five physical buttons littered across its sides. This sounds like a faff, but I actually find the interface fairly user friendly, especially compared to some smartwatch focused wearables’ touch systems, which expect you to use your watch like a smartphone. In my experience of using the watch in Scotland, the solar-charging function couldn’t charge the watch’s battery. Instead, it slowed down the speed at which the battery drained to between three and seven per cent in any 24-hour period, even when worn without actively trying to increase its battery life. The longest time I went between charges was 16 days, once again true to Garmin’s claims. Improved Broadcast Heart Rate and added support for simultaneously broadcasting through ANT+ and Bluetooth.It's also worth bearing in mind that many retailers are now offering Fenix 6 watches at a substantial discount, so if price is your biggest concern then this might be your best option. The graphics above and below the time indicate how much solar charge the watch is currently getting and how much it has had over the last six hours. Alex Evans / Immediate Media Though the refinements made are modest at a glance, they add up to make the already great Fenix 6 line even better.

This makes the Fenix 6 Pro Solar’s scope truly mighty, and only the most dogmatic exercisers will need to charge it twice a week. Added support for Action Menu during Golf. This should provide a more consistent and discoverable way to access more functions (actions) using the 'Start' key. Added support for ClimbPro 'Climb Detection' setting in Cycling. (Bike > Activity Settings > ClimbPro > Climb Detection) This allows the customer to customize grade 'sensitivity' when identifying climbs. br_whatWeTested, 5, 8, What we tested, Garmin Fenix 6 Pro Solar Edition, 47mm, silicone band, slate grey It has a 10 ATM water rating, so can withstand water pressures equivalent to a depth of 100 metres.Added support to auto enable Battery Saver during Sleep. (Menu > Power Manager > Battery Saver > During Sleep.) Added support for disabling workout videos during an activity. (Activity (Strength/Yoga/Pilates/Cardio) > Settings > Workout Videos) You get running (trail, indoor, outdoor, treadmill), biking (indoor, outdoor, MTB), pool and open swimming, climbing, skiing and snowboarding of all types, triathlon, strength, SUP, rowing, kayaking, golf, hiking, yoga and even more via the Connect IQ platform of apps.

Added support for sport specific power zones. One can now setup their power zones for XC Ski separately from that of Cycling. (Menu > User Profile > Power Zones) Fixed an intermittent issue where the weather widget would fail to load data when connected to an iOS device. The Stress Score and Body Battery have also proved useful in assessing readiness for training – and in some quite hectic periods of training sessions have proved fairly accurate in highlighting fatigue. Added support for training and breathwork workout categories to properly handle launching workouts from calendar view and prompting yoga, strength, cardio, breathing, and pilates workouts. Different watches in the Fenix 6 and 7 lines carry different price tags, with the basic models costing less than those with Sapphire crystal or Power Glass. However, all new Fenix 7 watches are more expensive than their older counterparts.

Added support for displaying running and cycling VO2 Max for a multisport activity when applicable. This is some of our favorite data, and a huge reason to invest in the Fenix 6. As runners, we’re addicted to the Training Effect and Training Status data, which is a great way to evaluate sessions.
