What is pormo xxxx Garmin Fenix ​​6 Pro; Premium Multisport GPS Watch; feature mapping; music Phase-calibrated step guidance and Pulse Ox sensors; Black to grandpa?


      Update 2/11/2021: I pormo xxxx was able to repurchase this watch pormo xxxx at pormo xxxx a pormo xxxx very, pormo xxxx very reasonable price - all things considered. Given pormo xxxx that I got it for under $500 pormo xxxx I must say it's incredibly impressive, even pormo xxxx without pormo xxxx a great HR sensor. pormo xxxx I have pormo xxxx grown pormo xxxx used to using my pormo xxxx HR pormo xxxx strap pormo xxxx for workouts at this pormo xxxx point and the pormo xxxx training suggestions this watch makes based on that information is pormo xxxx truly amazing. I pormo xxxx am a strength pormo xxxx and conditioning coach and I am extremely impressed that pormo xxxx under the calendar pormo xxxx widget they added a new feature of recommended workouts pormo xxxx for running and cycling for each day pormo xxxx based pormo xxxx on previous workouts and the pormo xxxx HR data. I'd say pormo xxxx it's spot on with how I'm feeling. It's very, VERY good. The battery life is still pormo xxxx excellent. I get about pormo xxxx 11 pormo xxxx days with pormo xxxx 1hr pormo xxxx of training each day. I do not sleep with it on. I love it pormo xxxx at pormo xxxx this point and pormo xxxx am pleased that I found it pormo xxxx at a pormo xxxx lesser price. It's worth it. 4 pormo xxxx stars for the mediocre pormo xxxx HR pormo xxxx sensor and high price.UPDATE: 5/11/2020: pormo xxxx So, I have given up on this pormo xxxx watches HR tracking ability. This pormo xxxx one issue is significant and it really pormo xxxx is an pormo xxxx inconvenience to always pormo xxxx have to look for and use a pormo xxxx chest pormo xxxx strap. pormo xxxx I have extensively, over the course pormo xxxx of 8 months tested and re-tested this device in pormo xxxx hopes pormo xxxx that the HR accuracy would improve with time. pormo xxxx It really hasn't. In short, pormo xxxx so you don't have pormo xxxx to read everything else I posted her, it straight up sucks pormo xxxx when compared pormo xxxx to the apple watch 4 pormo xxxx or 5. This watch cannot accurately display your HR when ascending hills pormo xxxx on a walk. On a hike, they finally got pormo xxxx something to pormo xxxx register. pormo xxxx Up until the last pormo xxxx update, pormo xxxx it pormo xxxx would pormo xxxx never crack 89bpm. pormo xxxx Now, if pormo xxxx you're working hard ascending a hill, it pormo xxxx will eventually catch up and display pormo xxxx a HR pormo xxxx that is accurate but pormo xxxx the lag time to get there is pormo xxxx insanely long. Usually 30 pormo xxxx seconds pormo xxxx or more so you'll be done with pormo xxxx a hill pormo xxxx and on flat ground before it pormo xxxx catches up to, pormo xxxx and displays it correctly. It will not measure HR correctly on bike rides on anything but flat, smooth terrain. It only works when pormo xxxx steady state pormo xxxx running or steady state bike riding indoors. All of the pormo xxxx training effects/suggestions pormo xxxx are based on HR data. pormo xxxx This does not record pormo xxxx HR data accurately or pormo xxxx at all in most cases so that pormo xxxx stuff is useless in practice. I would not buy this. It is pormo xxxx way to expensive. You pormo xxxx could buy it and use a chest strap for pormo xxxx all pormo xxxx activities which is pormo xxxx up pormo xxxx to you to decide if spending this much and having to use that is pormo xxxx reasonable. The apple watch 4 pormo xxxx or 5 are still far superior. I thought I'd use pormo xxxx the pormo xxxx maps feature more and I do find it pormo xxxx incredibly useful, but pormo xxxx because I train pormo xxxx the way I do, having solid HR tracking is more important to pormo xxxx me than pormo xxxx the pormo xxxx map pormo xxxx features which pormo xxxx I pormo xxxx could probably find a solution for via my phone. I train everyday with lifting, running, cycling, swimming or some variation of HIIT training. pormo xxxx Keep track of the HR data is a pormo xxxx great pormo xxxx way to see how pormo xxxx my fitness is progressing. Don't pormo xxxx waste pormo xxxx your money on this unless you don't care pormo xxxx about HR data. Other than that it's dope, pormo xxxx but it does pormo xxxx not pormo xxxx work as advertised in a hugely important way. I pormo xxxx can't overstate that enough. This is supposed to be a fitness tracker, after pormo xxxx all.TL;DR as of 2/10/20 I pormo xxxx would not recommend buying this watch. There has pormo xxxx been a persistent pormo xxxx issue with pormo xxxx the HR monitor either pormo xxxx lagging behind excessively pormo xxxx or not properly pormo xxxx reflecting your pormo xxxx HR during several pormo xxxx activties including hiking, stair workouts and others. Garmin knows of pormo xxxx this issue but hasn't fixed pormo xxxx it and I've been waiting months for pormo xxxx that to pormo xxxx occur. I pormo xxxx am returning this watch and waiting for a pormo xxxx fix at which point pormo xxxx I will repurchase it pormo xxxx or waiting for the 7.I'm an Ironman triathlete and outdoorsman. pormo xxxx I've been seeking a fitness tracking watch for the past year to replace my Apple Watch Series 4 since it is inadequate is some areas: in particular, battery life and the pormo xxxx lack of an always on display. This review pormo xxxx has pormo xxxx been pormo xxxx ongoing pormo xxxx and I keep updating pormo xxxx it with pormo xxxx more pormo xxxx experiences. I am definitely disappointed pormo xxxx with a few very specific and important features. I will elaborate pormo xxxx in an update section.I pormo xxxx had previously tried pormo xxxx three Fenix pormo xxxx 5x models. All 3 had pormo xxxx an optical pormo xxxx HR pormo xxxx sensor pormo xxxx that was atrocious pormo xxxx and I pormo xxxx thought pormo xxxx it pormo xxxx could be due to a faulty pormo xxxx unit, pormo xxxx but it's just their inherent design. You can google this independently and conclude the pormo xxxx same. pormo xxxx The sensor pormo xxxx was pormo xxxx always delayed during cycling pormo xxxx workouts and failed pormo xxxx to reflect pormo xxxx my heart pormo xxxx rate as pormo xxxx it dropped when I rested from pormo xxxx intervals.The Fenix 6 is a pormo xxxx substantial upgrade pormo xxxx in every category compared to the 5X. However, my focus pormo xxxx of this review is on the heart rate accuracy pormo xxxx and pormo xxxx if it is better than the 5x. I pormo xxxx tried this unit out because Garmin pormo xxxx redesigned pormo xxxx the sensor pormo xxxx for pormo xxxx the new Fenix 6 models. pormo xxxx I can tell you from personal experience that pormo xxxx it pormo xxxx is pormo xxxx better pormo xxxx at locking pormo xxxx into a HR when compared to the 5X. pormo xxxx It is still delayed when compared to the apple watch series 4 and pormo xxxx 5 or a wahoo tickr pormo xxxx chest strap. It usually takes pormo xxxx about 10 seconds pormo xxxx after pormo xxxx a 5-10 minute warm up to properly lock pormo xxxx onto pormo xxxx a HR. All is pormo xxxx good once it locks in pormo xxxx and its pormo xxxx usually only 2-10 pormo xxxx seconds behind a pormo xxxx chest strap and at most, pormo xxxx 2-3 beats pormo xxxx off from pormo xxxx the chest strap but pormo xxxx it actually matches it pormo xxxx most pormo xxxx of the time. It's excellent pormo xxxx at pormo xxxx steady state activity like pormo xxxx longer pormo xxxx runs and indoor cycling on a trainer pormo xxxx but that pormo xxxx seems pormo xxxx to be about it. The biggest pormo xxxx problem that persists which was present in the 5x, is the inability pormo xxxx for this pormo xxxx device to accurately display your pormo xxxx heart rate as it ascends or pormo xxxx descends if you pormo xxxx quickly change pormo xxxx intensity, or come to pormo xxxx a pormo xxxx stop to rest from any type of interval workout pormo xxxx - or any workout pormo xxxx for that matter. Especially outdoor cycling because of the vibration pormo xxxx in the road. In other words, if say, you were to do a quarter mile hill sprint on pormo xxxx a bike, there is never pormo xxxx a time when I stopped that the watch pormo xxxx was pormo xxxx able to pormo xxxx reflect the descending heart rate properly. pormo xxxx It would pormo xxxx usually hit 165 then, it would pormo xxxx slowly drop and get pormo xxxx stuck at 110-120bpm, when in reality compared to the chest strap or apple watch series 4, pormo xxxx my heart rate was at 75-90bpm pormo xxxx or less. I sometimes would pormo xxxx wait pormo xxxx up pormo xxxx to seven minutes before the pormo xxxx watch would pormo xxxx reflect the pormo xxxx lower heart pormo xxxx rate. This renders any pormo xxxx short duration activity pormo xxxx useless. It distorts the displayed training effects (if the workout was primarily aerobic or pormo xxxx anerobic once you hit stop) and turns your workouts and post workout pormo xxxx training effects that pormo xxxx are pormo xxxx displayed into pormo xxxx garbage because your average heart rates are pormo xxxx entirely thrown off usually 20-30 pormo xxxx beats too high. This renders the device pormo xxxx useless for anyone who weighs pormo xxxx interval training pormo xxxx heart pormo xxxx rate data heavily pormo xxxx in their pormo xxxx training program. Unless you spend another 75-100 pormo xxxx for an external strap which should not be necessary at this price point.I pormo xxxx want to make this very clear: the Apple watch 3 and beyond have been pormo xxxx scientifically researched in a few pormo xxxx medical journals and have been shown to be the most accurate wrist based optical heart rate sensors pormo xxxx when pormo xxxx compared to Garmin, pormo xxxx fitbit and one other brand I pormo xxxx cannot recall. pormo xxxx This is extremely troubling to pormo xxxx me because Garmin advertises itself as pormo xxxx being pormo xxxx the pormo xxxx gold standard for pormo xxxx fitness enthusiasts. This is a pormo xxxx major shortcoming that cannot be overlooked in a nearly one thousand dollar time piece geared to pormo xxxx help you pormo xxxx train more efficiently. For pormo xxxx that reason, and that reason alone, pormo xxxx I would not pormo xxxx recommend it. Garmin's main pormo xxxx competitor pormo xxxx in this space (Apple) can make a product pormo xxxx that yields accurate data for 50% pormo xxxx the cost.However, I will say pormo xxxx that the pormo xxxx watch has many other pormo xxxx features that pormo xxxx are outstanding including its display which is remarkably easy to see in the pormo xxxx light pormo xxxx and 60hrs of GPS tracking for pormo xxxx long overnight backpacking pormo xxxx trips or pormo xxxx endurance races/workouts. Based on my pormo xxxx current experiences, the pormo xxxx navigation pormo xxxx ability is good and pormo xxxx its usually about pormo xxxx 50 feet off from my pormo xxxx target destination which is pormo xxxx impressive.It's tough to pormo xxxx swallow buying a watch this expensive and it not pormo xxxx being at least as pormo xxxx good as a year or older pormo xxxx Apple watch heart rate sensor. It just isn't. It is terrible for elliptical pormo xxxx and hiking workouts and takes 5-10 pormo xxxx minutes to lock in and usually fails to at all because of the arm pormo xxxx movement, it is just terrible during hikes. I pormo xxxx think it is pormo xxxx because when you select the hike pormo xxxx activity, some power pormo xxxx saving features pormo xxxx are occurring pormo xxxx in the background which pormo xxxx affect HR. I tested this by doing hill pormo xxxx runs where pormo xxxx my HR would hit 140-150bpm. pormo xxxx The watch never showed above pormo xxxx 120bpm.It works pormo xxxx best when pormo xxxx on a stationary bike or jogging. It's proven to be useless in every pormo xxxx other category. This was never an issue with my series 4 apple watch. Garmin engineers, you guys pormo xxxx have got pormo xxxx to step it up with pormo xxxx the HR tech or HR algorithms in the pormo xxxx software because everything else is built on the heart rate pormo xxxx results you pormo xxxx collect. I'd rather have less features in this watch and have the pormo xxxx ones you do have pormo xxxx be on point pormo xxxx over pormo xxxx anything extra. ESPECIALLY HR accuracy.As I said, pormo xxxx you can spend another pormo xxxx hundred pormo xxxx dollars and get their pormo xxxx triathlon heart pormo xxxx rate pormo xxxx strap but oh my, pormo xxxx you're now pormo xxxx spending over pormo xxxx a thousand dollars pormo xxxx to make up for a pormo xxxx fault in the pormo xxxx product which pormo xxxx at this point, pormo xxxx shouldn't exist to this extent. A little faltering is bound to pormo xxxx happen with PPG technology, but this problem existed in the 5x and continues to pormo xxxx exist in the 6. I would not recommend this product pormo xxxx if you want it for accurate heart rate data to pormo xxxx help you train more efficiently unless you only pormo xxxx do steady state activity. In pormo xxxx reality, pormo xxxx it is pormo xxxx not for the hardcore HIIT athlete and even pormo xxxx outside of pormo xxxx those pormo xxxx hardcore training sessions, it pormo xxxx can't hold its own pormo xxxx against pormo xxxx the pormo xxxx Apple Watch pormo xxxx 4 or 5. pormo xxxx Truly pormo xxxx disappointing.UPDATE 10/22/19: I wanted to pormo xxxx be fair here pormo xxxx and pormo xxxx say that I did pormo xxxx end up returning this watch, but the pormo xxxx other features of pormo xxxx it pormo xxxx are pormo xxxx so good, that I eventually sold my Apple Watch 4 and pormo xxxx bought pormo xxxx another 6x pormo xxxx saphire pre-owned. Id say even though the HR sensor is bad for most workouts, its pormo xxxx quite good at steady state stuff like running pormo xxxx and pormo xxxx indoor cycling on pormo xxxx a trainer. The pormo xxxx HR sensor is a little faster than the 5x plus was, but that's pormo xxxx not saying much. pormo xxxx The wrist band is better pormo xxxx than the 5x but too heavy. Getting the perfect fit pormo xxxx is better than on the 5x plus pormo xxxx but it's a bit annoying. Its either too loose and wobbles when pormo xxxx hammering pormo xxxx during a pormo xxxx fast run or tight as pormo xxxx hell. pormo xxxx So pormo xxxx look out pormo xxxx for fabric sport nylon pormo xxxx band loops when they come out.I saved about $260 by buying pormo xxxx it preowned. If you can pormo xxxx get pormo xxxx the Saphire 6x pro model for $650-$700 or less I would say, it pormo xxxx COULD be worth pormo xxxx it. pormo xxxx Spending that pormo xxxx much still hurts BUT the display is truly amazing coming from pormo xxxx an pormo xxxx Apple Watch. No, its not a beautiful pormo xxxx high res OLED but its way more functional and practical. As are the buttons. The touch screen on the Apple watch sucks so much for swimming, and hikes, or camping trips when you have your gloves on. There's also no more wrist flicking at 20mph pormo xxxx bike rides pormo xxxx so if you ride, way safer pormo xxxx than the series 4 apple watch. Plank sets are easier too. pormo xxxx or pormo xxxx anything really, I pormo xxxx was surprised by how many times I was pormo xxxx doing that flick to turn on pormo xxxx the apple watch screen. Looking pormo xxxx back on it, it was so dumb and slowed me pormo xxxx down every time. pormo xxxx The Fenix 6 watch is pormo xxxx more than capable pormo xxxx of pormo xxxx weeks of usage. I pormo xxxx workout every day pormo xxxx for 45-60 minutes: running, pormo xxxx lifting, cycling, swimming or hiking, pormo xxxx and can go two pormo xxxx weeks without pormo xxxx charging this thing pormo xxxx with pulse Ox off and only measuring it at night when I sleep. It looks way cooler than other GPS watches (not my main priority, but pormo xxxx worth mentioning pormo xxxx because pormo xxxx style pormo xxxx is a factor.) its extremely durable pormo xxxx with the saphire and DLC coating although pormo xxxx I scratched the pormo xxxx bezel DLC coating at work rubbing it against a metal pormo xxxx door frame.I wrecked my Apple Watch pormo xxxx by rubbing it against stuff and had pormo xxxx to get pormo xxxx a replacement. Deep scratches formed pormo xxxx on the screen. It sucked. That will not happen to pormo xxxx this watch's pormo xxxx display. pormo xxxx that pormo xxxx gives me peace of mind. its a bit pormo xxxx lighter than the 5x plus, but with the band still heavy. Youll feel it.Overall, pormo xxxx at the $650-$700 or less pormo xxxx price point, pormo xxxx it's potentially a worthy competitor pormo xxxx to pormo xxxx others in the industry. I would not pormo xxxx get the 6. The screen is pormo xxxx quite small coming from a series 4. I also tried the six.The 1.4inch size is pormo xxxx really pormo xxxx nice on the 6x pro and saphire. In pormo xxxx summary, At the current 850 + tax. Still no way unless youre looking to splurge and be disappointed pormo xxxx by pormo xxxx many of pormo xxxx the key aspects you pormo xxxx would not want to be disappointed by. pormo xxxx Think of all pormo xxxx the other cool effective equipment you can pormo xxxx buy for that! I bought a wahoo kicker for less! That made me pormo xxxx a better athlete. pormo xxxx Not the sexy watch. pormo xxxx Its good, but not that good. Wait for a sale or buy pre-owned pormo xxxx and youll pormo xxxx be much pormo xxxx happier. as I said a millions times, I got a good deal pormo xxxx because I pormo xxxx offset the cost by selling the Apple Watch for what I paid for it new, and then buying pre-owned. pormo xxxx Out of pocket at that pormo xxxx point was pretty low. Thats my final verdict and recommendation to you. Im pormo xxxx always going to laugh a little at myself for spending as much as pormo xxxx I did on pormo xxxx this watch because theyre obsolete pormo xxxx in a year pormo xxxx and we pormo xxxx use them less than pormo xxxx our phones and spend just as much on them. Aside from the pormo xxxx stuff I mentioned, it is pretty pormo xxxx amazing pormo xxxx for navigation pormo xxxx in the pormo xxxx woods. I didnt even mention how you can pormo xxxx have pormo xxxx it pormo xxxx create a route for you for a run in an area youre not pormo xxxx familiar with. It can do pormo xxxx these out pormo xxxx and back runs or pormo xxxx back to start routes pormo xxxx if you get lost. You can view pormo xxxx the map as you pormo xxxx run and the pormo xxxx route is highlighted in purple and at it's worst, it's about 50 ft off actual distance or location when in wooded areas. pormo xxxx When on an open road pormo xxxx with clear skies, pormo xxxx it's on point. It's the jack pormo xxxx of pormo xxxx all pormo xxxx trades and master of none other than navigation. im still learning it and will keep updating it as IUPDATE: 12/18/2019: Another thing worth pormo xxxx mentioning, The power meter accuracy on pormo xxxx this also is off. I pormo xxxx calibrate pormo xxxx it before every pormo xxxx ride with my Quarq meter on my tri bike pormo xxxx and when pormo xxxx compared to my Wahoo pormo xxxx app which pormo xxxx is paired to my Kickr, it's always 20-30 Watts off. It makes pormo xxxx no sense pormo xxxx to me because I thought it would be projecting the numbers from the Kickr. This pormo xxxx watch sucks at pormo xxxx data pormo xxxx collection in pormo xxxx that regard. I really can't emphasize that point enough. There are some major issues with HR accuracy, too. I've gone as far to pormo xxxx shave my arm pormo xxxx hair to see pormo xxxx if it would improve pormo xxxx it (It might pormo xxxx have in the smallest way, but I didn't do a pormo xxxx scientific pormo xxxx study to see.) pormo xxxx and even after some updates which have improved HR readings, it pormo xxxx still is awful with specific tasks - one in particular. pormo xxxx The pormo xxxx HR accuracy has never been accurate on pormo xxxx any pormo xxxx hikes. It only pormo xxxx works on steady pormo xxxx state indoor rides pormo xxxx and pormo xxxx runs that pormo xxxx are pormo xxxx also steady pormo xxxx state or pormo xxxx tempo. I pormo xxxx contacted Garmin twice, and to their credit, after pormo xxxx pushing a little bit pormo xxxx on the second call, they sent me a second pormo xxxx Fenix 6 because they thought pormo xxxx the sensor was pormo xxxx broken. It was not. The hiking app on the 6x pormo xxxx pro sapphire pormo xxxx will not produce an accurate HR pormo xxxx reading. pormo xxxx It will never pormo xxxx break through a pormo xxxx certain threshold. For example, if I'm hiking up pormo xxxx a hill and my HR is at 160, the watch will NEVER display a HR pormo xxxx above pormo xxxx 90-110. Now, if pormo xxxx I switch to trail running pormo xxxx during the pormo xxxx same hike instead of the hiking activity, pormo xxxx the HR will shoot up to where it actually pormo xxxx is. This is a flaw I brought to Garmin's pormo xxxx attention and they are aware of it but a lot of time hasn't passed yet and I pormo xxxx do not pormo xxxx know when pormo xxxx it will be fixed. If ever. It is clearly a software pormo xxxx issue. As a result, I pormo xxxx will be returning this pormo xxxx watch for pormo xxxx a pormo xxxx full refund from pormo xxxx them if it's not working as pormo xxxx advertised in a pormo xxxx month or two. I'm willing to give them some pormo xxxx time to work out this bug but it should never have been there. Not on a product like this.It's pormo xxxx a pormo xxxx good watch for it's display, battery life pormo xxxx and wilderness pormo xxxx GPS tracking capabilities. It pormo xxxx isn't for the HIIT athlete unless pormo xxxx you're willing to accept some compromises and also buy an external HR pormo xxxx strap for serious interval work. And again, accept that your bike wattage displayed will be pormo xxxx off even after pormo xxxx calibration.In conclusion, pormo xxxx it's pormo xxxx very clear to me pormo xxxx that this is a watch that has too much in it and pormo xxxx the focus is far too broad for success to exist pormo xxxx in any one specific area pormo xxxx other than navigation, an easy pormo xxxx to read display, and pormo xxxx battery life due to its size. Their pormo xxxx companion app is excellent pormo xxxx but not pormo xxxx as helpful as you'd think pormo xxxx because pormo xxxx your HR data will pormo xxxx be inaccurate during any interval workouts and pormo xxxx for hikes, it's essentially pormo xxxx non-operational. However, It will work during steady pormo xxxx state cycling indoors or out, pormo xxxx and tempo run workouts just as well as an apple pormo xxxx watch 4 or 5. I pormo xxxx have compared it to both while pormo xxxx running and riding on a bike they basically are pormo xxxx equal.UPDATE pormo xxxx 1/22/20: OK, pormo xxxx so I've been pormo xxxx testing out pormo xxxx this watch since August, the main flaw I have reported is the pormo xxxx watch's failure to accurately track HR during pormo xxxx the pormo xxxx Hike pormo xxxx activity app pormo xxxx as stated above. pormo xxxx Even with the 5.77 software pormo xxxx BETA pormo xxxx installed, pormo xxxx it still doesn't work. After talking to garmin pormo xxxx in the past, they told me it was working as intended on the pormo xxxx smaller watch. I pormo xxxx decided to pick pormo xxxx one up to pormo xxxx test it to see pormo xxxx if they were lying to me. pormo xxxx They weren't I have both pormo xxxx watches on hand pormo xxxx for testing purposes and the Fenix 6 standard watch correctly pormo xxxx reflects pormo xxxx my HR pormo xxxx during a hike or even run when the activity pormo xxxx is pormo xxxx set as a hike. pormo xxxx The Fenix 6X sapphire still pormo xxxx holds my pormo xxxx HR at 90BMP pormo xxxx when it's actually pormo xxxx 170+. Garmin pormo xxxx told me that they are pormo xxxx aware of the issue and 40 other pormo xxxx users pormo xxxx brought it to their attention but they are currently working on other things at the moment and it is only being pormo xxxx investigated. I would pormo xxxx not pormo xxxx buy pormo xxxx this watch. I pormo xxxx am pormo xxxx going pormo xxxx to pormo xxxx return pormo xxxx this pormo xxxx and keep the smaller 6 since it pormo xxxx actually works as advertised. There pormo xxxx is pormo xxxx no established end date pormo xxxx to the false HR reading during hiking. This is an pormo xxxx unacceptable bug and they're pormo xxxx openly pormo xxxx admitting that they're working on other things pormo xxxx before they get around to that, so for that pormo xxxx reason I'm out. Go with the pormo xxxx smaller 6 and it'll likely work pormo xxxx right out of the box pormo xxxx as pormo xxxx intended. pormo xxxx The only solution pormo xxxx is to pormo xxxx log the activity differently. If pormo xxxx you log pormo xxxx your hike as pormo xxxx a run, pormo xxxx it will record pormo xxxx HR pormo xxxx data pormo xxxx properly.Included components: Fenix 6, Charging/data pormo xxxx cable, DocumentationA few weeks ago my pormo xxxx Apple Watch series 6 pormo xxxx quit. pormo xxxx The display pormo xxxx just pormo xxxx stopped working. I wasn't able to go pormo xxxx to an Apple Store pormo xxxx so I contacted pormo xxxx Apple online support. Anyone who has had to deal with pormo xxxx online AppleCare pormo xxxx knows that it pormo xxxx pales in comparison to in-store AppleCare. So pormo xxxx I had to wait for them to pormo xxxx send pormo xxxx me an empty box, then ship my faulty watch to Apple, wait for them to diagnose it and then wait for them pormo xxxx to pormo xxxx get around to sending out a replacement. As you pormo xxxx might guess pormo xxxx this process had me doing pormo xxxx some watch shopping. pormo xxxx I've used Garmin pormo xxxx GPSs since the pormo xxxx Selective Availability (SA) days, and I was already pormo xxxx using pormo xxxx a Garmin Edge 850 cycling computer and a pormo xxxx Virb action camera so I thought I'd go ahead and buy a pormo xxxx Garmin watch as well. I splurged on the Fenix 6X Pro Solar.Now I didn't just buy it for running and the occasional swim. I also pormo xxxx do pormo xxxx a fair pormo xxxx bit of hiking and the Apple pormo xxxx Watch is not pormo xxxx well suited at all to being away from cellular service. pormo xxxx I pormo xxxx wanted a better way to pormo xxxx maintain situational awareness, and long battery life. pormo xxxx The Fenix pormo xxxx 6 is a great stand-alone GPS pormo xxxx navigation device and with all the control pormo xxxx over sensors and power consumption I would feel pormo xxxx very confident in using this watch for basic navigation on well pormo xxxx established trails and forest service pormo xxxx roads, for a pormo xxxx few days at least and possibly indefinitely if you have pormo xxxx a way to recharge at the campsite. This afternoon I went pormo xxxx on a hike up the Scout trail near pormo xxxx Glenwood Springs Colorado. It did a pormo xxxx pretty good pormo xxxx job tracking my path even with less than perfect views pormo xxxx of the sky. Most pormo xxxx navigation apps pormo xxxx and road-orientated pormo xxxx devices will "correct" errors on your track to match a road or pormo xxxx trail, but this device does't do that. But most trails pormo xxxx on electronic maps are pormo xxxx pretty poorly geo-referenced pormo xxxx so that's pormo xxxx probably a good thing. It also means your track will wonder a good pormo xxxx bit as the HDOP/PDOP change too. The altimeter seems pormo xxxx accurate enough pormo xxxx but my expectation is pretty low. pormo xxxx Compass is pretty pormo xxxx good, matching the compass in my drone's flight controller, pormo xxxx which I think is very accurate, and pormo xxxx it can be calibrated easily. pormo xxxx Having heart rate zones at a pormo xxxx glance pormo xxxx is a good pormo xxxx way to keep pace, especially when ascending. pormo xxxx As pormo xxxx I use it more pormo xxxx for hiking I pormo xxxx will probably revise pormo xxxx and update this pormo xxxx review.So pormo xxxx far pormo xxxx I pormo xxxx don't think the solar function is pormo xxxx doing much of anything, but that's what most pormo xxxx everyone else has pormo xxxx experienced as well. Maybe pormo xxxx it helps a little, pormo xxxx but my last pormo xxxx solar watch pormo xxxx was a pormo xxxx Casio pormo xxxx Protrek, which never pormo xxxx needed anything pormo xxxx but pormo xxxx solar to charge. But it pormo xxxx was pormo xxxx in an pormo xxxx entirely different league as to functionality too. After a long bike ride yesterday, wearing pormo xxxx it all day pormo xxxx today (including an pormo xxxx hour run and two hour pormo xxxx hike), it still estimates 5 days of battery remaining. Coming from an pormo xxxx LTE Apple Watch I'm blown pormo xxxx away pormo xxxx with the battery life, although it pormo xxxx isn't pormo xxxx doing most of what the AW is doing either.The Garmin Connect pormo xxxx app/website is better than the others I've used for tracking pormo xxxx and training and is another reason pormo xxxx I went with the Fenix 6 over other fitness watches. I like the sleep tracking pormo xxxx graph, although I question the pormo xxxx data and pormo xxxx for now I'm wearing both my Apple Watch and the Fenix to bed just pormo xxxx to see pormo xxxx how they compare side by side (and pormo xxxx because I pormo xxxx like having Siri and HomeKit on my wrist), but pormo xxxx as Connect builds pormo xxxx a fitness profile I'll probably end that practice and pormo xxxx just pormo xxxx sick with the AW overnight. Respiration seems to be another good feature that Apple pormo xxxx seems pormo xxxx to be hesitant to track even though they could. pormo xxxx Again not pormo xxxx sure pormo xxxx of the accuracy of the data but pormo xxxx at least there's pormo xxxx something to pormo xxxx compare over time.I like the "tactical" (or is it "butch") look of the thing. Apple Watches are designed to be unisex and dull. The Fenix 6 looks like you're headed out on pormo xxxx a pormo xxxx mission pormo xxxx to take out pormo xxxx the pormo xxxx enemy camp, pormo xxxx especially in black. pormo xxxx The pormo xxxx included faces are pormo xxxx pretty disappointing, not much contrast and ugly fonts. pormo xxxx There's a pretty extensive pormo xxxx collection of user-generated faces, some pormo xxxx of which remind me why Apple doesn't let anyone make faces, but some look pretty good too.

Buyer's experience:


      1: Update 2/11/2021: I was able to repurchase this watch at a very, very reasonable price - all things considered. Given that I got it for under $500 I must say it's incredibly impressive, even without a great HR sensor. I have grown used to using my HR strap for workouts at this point and the training suggestions this watch makes based on that information is truly amazing. I am a strength and conditioning coach and I am extremely impressed that under the calendar widget they added a new feature of recommended workouts for running and cycling for each day based on previous workouts and the HR data. I'd say it's spot on with how I'm feeling. It's very, VERY good. The battery life is still excellent. I get about 11 days with 1hr of training each day. I do not sleep with it on. I love it at this point and am pleased that I found it at a lesser price. It's worth it. 4 stars for the mediocre HR sensor and high price.UPDATE: 5/11/2020: So, I have given up on this watches HR tracking ability. This one issue is significant and it really is an inconvenience to always have to look for and use a chest strap. I have extensively, over the course of 8 months tested and re-tested this device in hopes that the HR accuracy would improve with time. It really hasn't. In short, so you don't have to read everything else I posted her, it straight up sucks when compared to the apple watch 4 or 5. This watch cannot accurately display your HR when ascending hills on a walk. On a hike, they finally got something to register. Up until the last update, it would never crack 89bpm. Now, if you're working hard ascending a hill, it will eventually catch up and display a HR that is accurate but the lag time to get there is insanely long. Usually 30 seconds or more so you'll be done with a hill and on flat ground before it catches up to, and displays it correctly. It will not measure HR correctly on bike rides on anything but flat, smooth terrain. It only works when steady state running or steady state bike riding indoors. All of the training effects/suggestions are based on HR data. This does not record HR data accurately or at all in most cases so that stuff is useless in practice. I would not buy this. It is way to expensive. You could buy it and use a chest strap for all activities which is up to you to decide if spending this much and having to use that is reasonable. The apple watch 4 or 5 are still far superior. I thought I'd use the maps feature more and I do find it incredibly useful, but because I train the way I do, having solid HR tracking is more important to me than the map features which I could probably find a solution for via my phone. I train everyday with lifting, running, cycling, swimming or some variation of HIIT training. Keep track of the HR data is a great way to see how my fitness is progressing. Don't waste your money on this unless you don't care about HR data. Other than that it's dope, but it does not work as advertised in a hugely important way. I can't overstate that enough. This is supposed to be a fitness tracker, after all.TL;DR as of 2/10/20 I would not recommend buying this watch. There has been a persistent issue with the HR monitor either lagging behind excessively or not properly reflecting your HR during several activties including hiking, stair workouts and others. Garmin knows of this issue but hasn't fixed it and I've been waiting months for that to occur. I am returning this watch and waiting for a fix at which point I will repurchase it or waiting for the 7.I'm an Ironman triathlete and outdoorsman. I've been seeking a fitness tracking watch for the past year to replace my Apple Watch Series 4 since it is inadequate is some areas: in particular, battery life and the lack of an always on display. This review has been ongoing and I keep updating it with more experiences. I am definitely disappointed with a few very specific and important features. I will elaborate in an update section.I had previously tried three Fenix 5x models. All 3 had an optical HR sensor that was atrocious and I thought it could be due to a faulty unit, but it's just their inherent design. You can google this independently and conclude the same. The sensor was always delayed during cycling workouts and failed to reflect my heart rate as it dropped when I rested from intervals.The Fenix 6 is a substantial upgrade in every category compared to the 5X. However, my focus of this review is on the heart rate accuracy and if it is better than the 5x. I tried this unit out because Garmin redesigned the sensor for the new Fenix 6 models. I can tell you from personal experience that it is better at locking into a HR when compared to the 5X. It is still delayed when compared to the apple watch series 4 and 5 or a wahoo tickr chest strap. It usually takes about 10 seconds after a 5-10 minute warm up to properly lock onto a HR. All is good once it locks in and its usually only 2-10 seconds behind a chest strap and at most, 2-3 beats off from the chest strap but it actually matches it most of the time. It's excellent at steady state activity like longer runs and indoor cycling on a trainer but that seems to be about it. The biggest problem that persists which was present in the 5x, is the inability for this device to accurately display your heart rate as it ascends or descends if you quickly change intensity, or come to a stop to rest from any type of interval workout - or any workout for that matter. Especially outdoor cycling because of the vibration in the road. In other words, if say, you were to do a quarter mile hill sprint on a bike, there is never a time when I stopped that the watch was able to reflect the descending heart rate properly. It would usually hit 165 then, it would slowly drop and get stuck at 110-120bpm, when in reality compared to the chest strap or apple watch series 4, my heart rate was at 75-90bpm or less. I sometimes would wait up to seven minutes before the watch would reflect the lower heart rate. This renders any short duration activity useless. It distorts the displayed training effects (if the workout was primarily aerobic or anerobic once you hit stop) and turns your workouts and post workout training effects that are displayed into garbage because your average heart rates are entirely thrown off usually 20-30 beats too high. This renders the device useless for anyone who weighs interval training heart rate data heavily in their training program. Unless you spend another 75-100 for an external strap which should not be necessary at this price point.I want to make this very clear: the Apple watch 3 and beyond have been scientifically researched in a few medical journals and have been shown to be the most accurate wrist based optical heart rate sensors when compared to Garmin, fitbit and one other brand I cannot recall. This is extremely troubling to me because Garmin advertises itself as being the gold standard for fitness enthusiasts. This is a major shortcoming that cannot be overlooked in a nearly one thousand dollar time piece geared to help you train more efficiently. For that reason, and that reason alone, I would not recommend it. Garmin's main competitor in this space (Apple) can make a product that yields accurate data for 50% the cost.However, I will say that the watch has many other features that are outstanding including its display which is remarkably easy to see in the light and 60hrs of GPS tracking for long overnight backpacking trips or endurance races/workouts. Based on my current experiences, the navigation ability is good and its usually about 50 feet off from my target destination which is impressive.It's tough to swallow buying a watch this expensive and it not being at least as good as a year or older Apple watch heart rate sensor. It just isn't. It is terrible for elliptical and hiking workouts and takes 5-10 minutes to lock in and usually fails to at all because of the arm movement, it is just terrible during hikes. I think it is because when you select the hike activity, some power saving features are occurring in the background which affect HR. I tested this by doing hill runs where my HR would hit 140-150bpm. The watch never showed above 120bpm.It works best when on a stationary bike or jogging. It's proven to be useless in every other category. This was never an issue with my series 4 apple watch. Garmin engineers, you guys have got to step it up with the HR tech or HR algorithms in the software because everything else is built on the heart rate results you collect. I'd rather have less features in this watch and have the ones you do have be on point over anything extra. ESPECIALLY HR accuracy.As I said, you can spend another hundred dollars and get their triathlon heart rate strap but oh my, you're now spending over a thousand dollars to make up for a fault in the product which at this point, shouldn't exist to this extent. A little faltering is bound to happen with PPG technology, but this problem existed in the 5x and continues to exist in the 6. I would not recommend this product if you want it for accurate heart rate data to help you train more efficiently unless you only do steady state activity. In reality, it is not for the hardcore HIIT athlete and even outside of those hardcore training sessions, it can't hold its own against the Apple Watch 4 or 5. Truly disappointing.UPDATE 10/22/19: I wanted to be fair here and say that I did end up returning this watch, but the other features of it are so good, that I eventually sold my Apple Watch 4 and bought another 6x saphire pre-owned. Id say even though the HR sensor is bad for most workouts, its quite good at steady state stuff like running and indoor cycling on a trainer. The HR sensor is a little faster than the 5x plus was, but that's not saying much. The wrist band is better than the 5x but too heavy. Getting the perfect fit is better than on the 5x plus but it's a bit annoying. Its either too loose and wobbles when hammering during a fast run or tight as hell. So look out for fabric sport nylon band loops when they come out.I saved about $260 by buying it preowned. If you can get the Saphire 6x pro model for $650-$700 or less I would say, it COULD be worth it. Spending that much still hurts BUT the display is truly amazing coming from an Apple Watch. No, its not a beautiful high res OLED but its way more functional and practical. As are the buttons. The touch screen on the Apple watch sucks so much for swimming, and hikes, or camping trips when you have your gloves on. There's also no more wrist flicking at 20mph bike rides so if you ride, way safer than the series 4 apple watch. Plank sets are easier too. or anything really, I was surprised by how many times I was doing that flick to turn on the apple watch screen. Looking back on it, it was so dumb and slowed me down every time. The Fenix 6 watch is more than capable of weeks of usage. I workout every day for 45-60 minutes: running, lifting, cycling, swimming or hiking, and can go two weeks without charging this thing with pulse Ox off and only measuring it at night when I sleep. It looks way cooler than other GPS watches (not my main priority, but worth mentioning because style is a factor.) its extremely durable with the saphire and DLC coating although I scratched the bezel DLC coating at work rubbing it against a metal door frame.I wrecked my Apple Watch by rubbing it against stuff and had to get a replacement. Deep scratches formed on the screen. It sucked. That will not happen to this watch's display. that gives me peace of mind. its a bit lighter than the 5x plus, but with the band still heavy. Youll feel it.Overall, at the $650-$700 or less price point, it's potentially a worthy competitor to others in the industry. I would not get the 6. The screen is quite small coming from a series 4. I also tried the six.The 1.4inch size is really nice on the 6x pro and saphire. In summary, At the current 850 + tax. Still no way unless youre looking to splurge and be disappointed by many of the key aspects you would not want to be disappointed by. Think of all the other cool effective equipment you can buy for that! I bought a wahoo kicker for less! That made me a better athlete. Not the sexy watch. Its good, but not that good. Wait for a sale or buy pre-owned and youll be much happier. as I said a millions times, I got a good deal because I offset the cost by selling the Apple Watch for what I paid for it new, and then buying pre-owned. Out of pocket at that point was pretty low. Thats my final verdict and recommendation to you. Im always going to laugh a little at myself for spending as much as I did on this watch because theyre obsolete in a year and we use them less than our phones and spend just as much on them. Aside from the stuff I mentioned, it is pretty amazing for navigation in the woods. I didnt even mention how you can have it create a route for you for a run in an area youre not familiar with. It can do these out and back runs or back to start routes if you get lost. You can view the map as you run and the route is highlighted in purple and at it's worst, it's about 50 ft off actual distance or location when in wooded areas. When on an open road with clear skies, it's on point. It's the jack of all trades and master of none other than navigation. im still learning it and will keep updating it as IUPDATE: 12/18/2019: Another thing worth mentioning, The power meter accuracy on this also is off. I calibrate it before every ride with my Quarq meter on my tri bike and when compared to my Wahoo app which is paired to my Kickr, it's always 20-30 Watts off. It makes no sense to me because I thought it would be projecting the numbers from the Kickr. This watch sucks at data collection in that regard. I really can't emphasize that point enough. There are some major issues with HR accuracy, too. I've gone as far to shave my arm hair to see if it would improve it (It might have in the smallest way, but I didn't do a scientific study to see.) and even after some updates which have improved HR readings, it still is awful with specific tasks - one in particular. The HR accuracy has never been accurate on any hikes. It only works on steady state indoor rides and runs that are also steady state or tempo. I contacted Garmin twice, and to their credit, after pushing a little bit on the second call, they sent me a second Fenix 6 because they thought the sensor was broken. It was not. The hiking app on the 6x pro sapphire will not produce an accurate HR reading. It will never break through a certain threshold. For example, if I'm hiking up a hill and my HR is at 160, the watch will NEVER display a HR above 90-110. Now, if I switch to trail running during the same hike instead of the hiking activity, the HR will shoot up to where it actually is. This is a flaw I brought to Garmin's attention and they are aware of it but a lot of time hasn't passed yet and I do not know when it will be fixed. If ever. It is clearly a software issue. As a result, I will be returning this watch for a full refund from them if it's not working as advertised in a month or two. I'm willing to give them some time to work out this bug but it should never have been there. Not on a product like this.It's a good watch for it's display, battery life and wilderness GPS tracking capabilities. It isn't for the HIIT athlete unless you're willing to accept some compromises and also buy an external HR strap for serious interval work. And again, accept that your bike wattage displayed will be off even after calibration.In conclusion, it's very clear to me that this is a watch that has too much in it and the focus is far too broad for success to exist in any one specific area other than navigation, an easy to read display, and battery life due to its size. Their companion app is excellent but not as helpful as you'd think because your HR data will be inaccurate during any interval workouts and for hikes, it's essentially non-operational. However, It will work during steady state cycling indoors or out, and tempo run workouts just as well as an apple watch 4 or 5. I have compared it to both while running and riding on a bike they basically are equal.UPDATE 1/22/20: OK, so I've been testing out this watch since August, the main flaw I have reported is the watch's failure to accurately track HR during the Hike activity app as stated above. Even with the 5.77 software BETA installed, it still doesn't work. After talking to garmin in the past, they told me it was working as intended on the smaller watch. I decided to pick one up to test it to see if they were lying to me. They weren't I have both watches on hand for testing purposes and the Fenix 6 standard watch correctly reflects my HR during a hike or even run when the activity is set as a hike. The Fenix 6X sapphire still holds my HR at 90BMP when it's actually 170+. Garmin told me that they are aware of the issue and 40 other users brought it to their attention but they are currently working on other things at the moment and it is only being investigated. I would not buy this watch. I am going to return this and keep the smaller 6 since it actually works as advertised. There is no established end date to the false HR reading during hiking. This is an unacceptable bug and they're openly admitting that they're working on other things before they get around to that, so for that reason I'm out. Go with the smaller 6 and it'll likely work right out of the box as intended. The only solution is to log the activity differently. If you log your hike as a run, it will record HR data properly.


      2: A few weeks ago my Apple Watch series 6 quit. The display just stopped working. I wasn't able to go to an Apple Store so I contacted Apple online support. Anyone who has had to deal with online AppleCare knows that it pales in comparison to in-store AppleCare. So I had to wait for them to send me an empty box, then ship my faulty watch to Apple, wait for them to diagnose it and then wait for them to get around to sending out a replacement. As you might guess this process had me doing some watch shopping. I've used Garmin GPSs since the Selective Availability (SA) days, and I was already using a Garmin Edge 850 cycling computer and a Virb action camera so I thought I'd go ahead and buy a Garmin watch as well. I splurged on the Fenix 6X Pro Solar.Now I didn't just buy it for running and the occasional swim. I also do a fair bit of hiking and the Apple Watch is not well suited at all to being away from cellular service. I wanted a better way to maintain situational awareness, and long battery life. The Fenix 6 is a great stand-alone GPS navigation device and with all the control over sensors and power consumption I would feel very confident in using this watch for basic navigation on well established trails and forest service roads, for a few days at least and possibly indefinitely if you have a way to recharge at the campsite. This afternoon I went on a hike up the Scout trail near Glenwood Springs Colorado. It did a pretty good job tracking my path even with less than perfect views of the sky. Most navigation apps and road-orientated devices will "correct" errors on your track to match a road or trail, but this device does't do that. But most trails on electronic maps are pretty poorly geo-referenced so that's probably a good thing. It also means your track will wonder a good bit as the HDOP/PDOP change too. The altimeter seems accurate enough but my expectation is pretty low. Compass is pretty good, matching the compass in my drone's flight controller, which I think is very accurate, and it can be calibrated easily. Having heart rate zones at a glance is a good way to keep pace, especially when ascending. As I use it more for hiking I will probably revise and update this review.So far I don't think the solar function is doing much of anything, but that's what most everyone else has experienced as well. Maybe it helps a little, but my last solar watch was a Casio Protrek, which never needed anything but solar to charge. But it was in an entirely different league as to functionality too. After a long bike ride yesterday, wearing it all day today (including an hour run and two hour hike), it still estimates 5 days of battery remaining. Coming from an LTE Apple Watch I'm blown away with the battery life, although it isn't doing most of what the AW is doing either.The Garmin Connect app/website is better than the others I've used for tracking and training and is another reason I went with the Fenix 6 over other fitness watches. I like the sleep tracking graph, although I question the data and for now I'm wearing both my Apple Watch and the Fenix to bed just to see how they compare side by side (and because I like having Siri and HomeKit on my wrist), but as Connect builds a fitness profile I'll probably end that practice and just sick with the AW overnight. Respiration seems to be another good feature that Apple seems to be hesitant to track even though they could. Again not sure of the accuracy of the data but at least there's something to compare over time.I like the "tactical" (or is it "butch") look of the thing. Apple Watches are designed to be unisex and dull. The Fenix 6 looks like you're headed out on a mission to take out the enemy camp, especially in black. The included faces are pretty disappointing, not much contrast and ugly fonts. There's a pretty extensive collection of user-generated faces, some of which remind me why Apple doesn't let anyone make faces, but some look pretty good too. I also prefer the smooth second hand of my Apple Watch over the quartz-style tick on the Fenix. The time is updated via GPS and matches exactly with NTP, WWV and T-Mobile. Communicating with a cell phone, at least an iPhone, is not too bad. You get alerts and basic music controls, and it will use the Bluetooth connection for syncing with Connect. If I didn't already have an Apple Watch I might even call it good, but the tight integration with iPhones (which isn't possible outside of the Apple universe), has pretty much ruined it for all other smart watches. I was able to sync it with my Mac using Garmin Express, even transferring music over from my iTunes folders. I installed a podcasting app on the watch but haven't used it yet. It paired just fine with my AirPods, it only plays music though. I don't have Spotify so cannot comment on the app. It took a few tries, but managed to connect to my wifi network. It will sync with Connect over wifi but doesn't seem to do much else. My guess is that it will stream music from Spotify over wifi, or at least it should. Seems like there's potential for it to do more over wifi to get "smarter."There are a few things I would like to see in the next version. Number one would be LTE connectivity, if the modem could be disabled for battery life. Garmin recently introduced an LTE running watch, although LTE is only used for very specific purposes. For many people, a watch like this, with a full-featured LTE or 5G modem, would make a viable replacement for a basic flip-phone. Another wish list item would be wireless charging. The charging cable is too short and fiddly, and I think the contacts on the back will eventually corrode, especially if I do more swimming.
