Garmin fēnix 6 Pro GPS Adventure Watch (Pro Solar and Sapphire Options Available)
The Garmin fēnix 6 Pro has many of the same advanced features as the Forerunner 945, including Running Dynamics, Training Status, Training Effect, Training Load, and more!
Where this GPS adventure watch stands out is in size, ruggedness, and power. Yet it thoroughly maintains sophistication with advanced technology and convenience as an everyday watch with smart features like emails, alerts, texts, paying from the wrists, and storage for up to 2,000 songs.
Also, the fēnix 6 rugged multisport watch has several model options, which we will touch on with each specialized feature. Prices vary between models.
For display size, it's always optimal to have a large color touchscreen on your wrist when your GPS watch is loaded with features. The fēnix 6 has a 1.3" screen, while the fēnix 6S has a 1.2" for smaller wrists, and the fēnix 6X has a 1.4" for those who want the largest touchscreen. Keep in mind that with a larger display comes a larger case size, which means more battery power (and more cost). We'll get to that in a moment.
For ruggedness, all Garmin fēnix 6 Pro watches are tested to U.S. military standards for thermal, shock, and water resistance. You can opt for the fēnix 6 Pro Sapphire edition, which adds a scratch-resistant sapphire lens and premium materials.
And finally, let's talk battery life. You can really extend the power in your adventure watch with the fēnix 6 lineup that has Max Battery mode and solar-charging options. With the Garmin fēnix 6 Pro, you get up to 14 days in smartwatch mode, 72 hours with Max Battery GPS mode, and 28 days in Expedition GPS Activity. When you opt for the Solar edition, you get up to 16 days in smartwatch mode, 93 hours with Max Battery GPS mode, and 36 days in Expedition GPS Activity.
Whether you take it surfing, backcountry skiing, or mountain biking, the Garmin fēnix 6 Pro adventure watch can perform wherever you roam!
