Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr +

Fancy analogue watches are all well and good, but next time you’re looking to beef up your watch collection, you may want to think about picking up a model from the new Garmin fenix 6 series of features-packed watches.

The latest addition to Garmin’s lineup of GPS multisport smartwatches, the fenix 6 collection is designed for adventure with longer battery life, compensation for elevation changes, and the brand’s largest displays.

Constructed to offer a more comfortable wrist fit, the new collection features Garmin’s new QuickFit nylon and silicone bands in an array of colours. At 1.3 and 1.4 inches respectively, displays on the 6 and 6X models are also up to 36% bigger than Garmin’s 5 series.

A new feature for the fenix 6 lineup, the PacePro helps runners keep their pacing strategy on track. Users will be able to create routes directly on the watch and keep an eye on their targets while on a run.

For those bent on active adventures, the fenix 6 watches make a great companion with topographic maps, and specific maps for over 2,000 ski resorts and 41,000 golf courses around the world.

The watches also allow users to store up to 2,000 songs and sync playlists from popular music streaming services, and receive alerts for phone calls, messages and emails by enabling smart notifications.

Health First

Any smartwatch worth its salt will offer some sort of health and activity tracking, but the Garmin fenix 6 watches really give wearers the chance to monitor minute details. The wrist-based heart-rate tracker can be used in all situations, including underwater, and even tracks bloody oxygen saturation to assist with better sleep and altitude acclimation.

The innovative Body Battery feature monitors your energy levels, which can help you schedule workouts, rest times and sleep. It’s pretty simple – a higher number means it’s a good time to be active; a low number means you might need some rest.

Garmin fenix 6X Pro Solar

Along with all the above features that come with the fenix 6 and 6X models, the Pro Solar is the first Garmin watch to feature solar charging. Thanks to a smart design that incorporates Power Glass – a transparent solar charging lens – the watch’s 21-day battery life can be extended by up to three days with solar charging.
