Garmin Fenix 6X Pro Solar Smartwatch Review – sport watch and offline satnav in one
At the touch of a button. The Fenix 6 Pro has a lot going for it. With offline maps and professional analysis features it focuses on preparation and follow-up of outdoor activities. You don't need to be a professional athlete in order to benefit from this sports 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 a touchscreen.
A Garmin watch is no ordinary smartwatch. It is a fitness watch highly appreciated by athletes.
In addition to recording and analyzing training and exercise sessions the Swiss GPS specialist also added offline navigation to some of its watches.
The extensive map material based on OpenStreetmap data is only available on the Pro models of the Fenix 6, which is available in three different sizes: small (42 mm), medium (47 mm), and large (51 mm). Our review unit was Garmin’s current top model, the Fenix 6X Pro Solar. The Solar model includes a transparent solar-charging lens that will charge the watch outdoors in order to improve battery life.
