These times might be uncertain but one thing is for sure: this is one amazing Garmin watch deal! The Gamin Fenix 6 is one of our favourite running watch at the moment and represents what Garmin has to offer when it comes to fitness wearables. And now you can get this brilliant fitness watch for £100 cheaper at Millets.
It would be too long to list all the features included in the Garmin Fenix 6 – one might even say it is a bit overpowered for an average human being – but just to highlight a few: GPS time sync, multiple GNSS support including GPS/GLONASS/Galileo, wrist heart rate monitor, barometric altimeter / compass / gyroscope / accelerometer / thermometer, smart notifications, Garmin Pay and many, many more.
Why should you buy the Garmin Fenix 6 GPS smartwatch
The Garmin Fenix 6 is marketed as an ‘adventure watch’ which pretty much means it is suited for people who like hiking and discovering uncharted terrains. The Fenix 6 is so much more than just a hiking watch, though. Sure, it has a pretty good chip and can locate your position with high accuracy. Also, it has a stainless steel case, a Gorilla Glass lens at the front and it is also water rated for 100 metres.
Not to mention, the battery life is pretty good too: it will go between two charges for 14 days in smartwatch mode, 36 hours in GPS tracking mode, 72 hours in ‘Max Battery’ mode, 28 days (!) in ‘Expedition’ mode and 48 days – that’s over a month and a half – in ‘Battery saver’ mode.
There is also built-in memory for apps, Garmin Pay functionality so you can use the Fenix 6 to pay for goods in the shops (only essentials at the moment, though). The bright colour display has a resolution of 260 x 260 pixels, it is not touch-screen however, so if you are after that you might want to get the Suunto 7 or the Polar Vantage V.
There are also casual features on board, like the Pulse Ox sensors that can measure how well your body is absorbing oxygen and the Body Battery energy monitor that gives you an understanding of when to train and when to rest.
