Garmin fēnix 6 Pro Review

Garmin fēnix 6 Pro

The Garmin fēnix 6 Pro is a powerful, feature-rich watch that has something for everyone.

It has all the features you would expect in a high-end device, including GPS navigation, heart rate monitoring, and 24/7 activity tracking. But it also includes some new features that make it especially appealing for athletes and fitness enthusiasts.

Read on to find out what makes the fēnix 6 Pro stand out.


The Garmin fēnix 6 Pro multisport GPS watch is the perfect fitness device for those who demand performance and style. Its rugged, sophisticated design can handle any workout while still looking great. It comes in three varieties: fēnix 6, fēnix 6S, and fēnix 6X.

The 1.3-inch display is bigger and brighter than previous models. The display is 36 percent larger than on previous fēnix models, giving you even more space to view maps, stats, and other information while you're on the go.

It also features a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal lens and a durable stainless-steel bezel. Like other Garmin watches, it has two adjustable silicone straps to ensure a secure fit.

This wristwatch can be customized with silicone bands of different materials, including metal, leather, nylon, and titanium. The included QuickFit system makes it easy to change your strap for something new.

One of the few downsides of the fēnix 6 Pro is that it is not a touch-screen device, but this is not a major issue as the device can be operated with the five physical pushbuttons with ease. There's even room for a light toggle in case you need some extra illumination during late-night workouts.

Performance and Tracking

As with previous models, the fēnix 6 is packed with features and sensors that make it an essential tool for athletes and outdoor enthusiasts. However, the fēnix 6 builds on the success of the fēnix 5 Plus with the addition of several tweaks and adjustments that make it more user-friendly.

One of the most notable upgrades from the previous model is the increased internal memory, which allows you to store up to 32 GB of data. This extra space comes in handy when you want to store music on the watch, as you can now sync songs from Spotify or Deezer.

The other notable change is the introduction of widgets, which group data into smaller, more manageable chunks.

With a few taps of the up button on the home screen, you can quickly view essential recordings, including music controls, weather, calendar, heart rate, smartphone notifications, and last activity. This gives you a quick overview of vital data without having to scroll through pages of information.

Other welcome improvements include an enhanced heartbeat sensor and refinements to the already excellent mapping and navigation capabilities.

With its wealth of features and improvements over its predecessor, the fēnix 6 is sure to cement its place as one of the best GPS watches on the market.


The Garmin fēnix 6 Pro is a versatile watch that can be used for a variety of activities, both indoors and out.

It has sensors that track and record data, so you can see your progress and improve your performance over time. You can also create custom activities or use the default settings to get started right away.

And when you're finished, you can save and share your activities with the Garmin Connect community. Whether you're a seasoned athlete or just starting out, the fēnix 6 Pro is a great choice for tracking your progress and reaching your fitness goals.

Garmin fēnix 6 Pro Apps

The Garmin fēnix 6 Pro is a state-of-the-art fitness watch that allows you to connect with the world around you like never before. With Connect IQ, the open platform for third-party developer apps, you can customize your fēnix 6 Pro to suit your needs perfectly.

For example, you can use the Connect IQ platform to download apps that add functionality to the watch. You can download an app that allows you to control music playback from your wrist or one that provides information on the best hiking trails in your area.

Whether you're looking to stay in shape or stay connected with friends and family, you're sure to find a suitable app.

Garmin fēnix 6 Pro Battery Life

One of the biggest improvements over its predecessor is the addition of multiple battery-saving options, which allow the watch to last up to 80 days on a single charge while set to the "Battery saver watch" mode.

While this extreme battery-saving mode is unlikely to be used by most users (Not many people go to places without access to a charger for over two months), the more draining "Expedition GPS" mode gives up to 46 days of service.

In the "Max. battery GPS" mode, the fēnix 6 Pro can last up to 120 hours, thanks to Garmin's UltraTrac feature, which reduces the watch's track points and sensor data. Even in "GPS mode with music," the fēnix 6 Pro can last up to 15 hours, so you don't have to worry about it dying during a long exercise session.

If you opt for the most generous battery-saving option (Smartwatch mode with activity tracking and 24/7 wrist-based heart rate monitoring), you can still squeeze out up to 21 days of uninterrupted service.

With solar charging, the fēnix 5 can give up to 50% more battery life on each of the battery-saving options above.

For these reasons, the fēnix 6 Pro is an ideal choice for anyone who wants a smartwatch that they can rely on, even when they're away from home.

Garmin fēnix 6 Pro Wireless Charging

One of fēnix 6 Pro's key selling points is its support for wireless charging, which allows you to simply place the watch on a compatible charging pad rather than fumbling with cables.

This is a major improvement over previous models, most of which required you to plug the watch into a cable to charge it.

In addition to being more convenient, wireless charging is also gentler on the battery, helping to extend its lifespan.

Final Verdict

When you're looking for the best multi-sport fitness smartwatch, look no further than this well-rounded gem from Garmin. The only real downside to this wrist piece is its price.

But with plenty of features and great design that'll match any outfit or occasion - not just workouts or nature – purchasing the fēnix 6 Pro is an easy decision to make.
