Garmin Fenix 6X Pro Solar Smartwatch Review – sport watch and offline satnav in one

You don't need to be a professional athlete in order to benefit from this sport watch. However, you do need to know how to use it, which is not as simple as it sounds given the huge amount of features and lack of touchscreen.
