3 reviews for Garmin Fenix 6x – Pro Solar Edition

  1. 5 out of 5

    James Campbell

    I have not had it very long but so far very, very impressed.

    It came with a decent charge right out of the box, so I went ahead and took it on a routine 3 mile run to see how well it recorded.

    It was right on point for distance travelled and was able to get the entire path synced to the phone once it was close enough. I am really impressed in the amount of insight provided from the run data, everything from pace, speed, timing, heart rate, cadence, and a slew of graphs on both the phone app and the website.
    Also found the Pulse OX (blood/oxygen level) measuring, health stats, and V02 Max to be pretty great addition and functioning with no issues so far.

    Notifications, phone call management, text responses, etc is pretty much on the same level you would expect from any smart watch.
