Size and build quality can be a major factor in determining which GPS fitness watch is right for your wrist. You may have a preference for a slimmer, lighter watch. However a bulkier Garmin watch may be more resistant to the elements and provide more room for the features and battery life you want. A smaller display may be perfect for some workouts, while a larger screen may offer more stat data at a glance. It all comes down to you!
Garmin fēnix 6/6S/6X Pro & Sapphire
The fēnix 6 Pro & Sapphire have a 1.3" (30.4 mm) diameter color display with a Corning® Gorilla® Glass DX lens (sapphire crystal for the Sapphire edition). The stainless steel bezel and fiber-reinforced polymer case with metal rear cover make it a heavier watch at 80 g. Physical dimensions are 47 x 47 x 14.7 mm—making it a little thicker than other Garmin Watches like the Forerunner 945.
The fēnix 6S Pro & Sapphire have a 1.2” (30.4 mm) diameter color display with a Corning® Gorilla® Glass DX lens (sapphire lens for the Sapphire). The stainless steel bezel and fiber-reinforced polymer case with metal rear cover add weight, but the 6S is the lightest of the fēnix 6 series, coming in at 61 g. Physical dimensions are 42 x 42 x 13.8 mm—smaller than the fēnix 6 size.
Due to some other materials offered in certian models, such as titanium and DLC coated steel, and a sapphire lens on the fēnix 6 Sapphire editions, weight can vary by several grams, e.g., titanium is lighter than steel.
The fēnix 6X Pro & Sapphire have a 1.4” (35.56 mm) diameter color display with a Corning® Gorilla® Glass DX lens—sapphire crystal for the Sapphire edition. It offers a stainless steel or DLC coated steel bezel and fiber-reinforced polymer case with metal rear cover watch, making it the heaviest watch in this lineup at 93 g. Physical dimensions of 51 x 51 x 14.9 mm make it a considerably bulkier watch.
Garmin fēnix 6/6S/6X Pro Solar
The fēnix 6/6S/6X Pro Solar watches have the same dimensions and display sizes as the Pro and Sapphire editions. However, the lens is made of Power Glass™ for solar charging, and the weight varies because of a range of materials offered.
