I’m a week into owning this watch and it has jump-started me into getting back in shape! Hubby has a Garmin he has been using religiously for the last year or so and I finally jumped on the bandwagon and I’m so in love!!! Not only is it beautiful, the solar option is awesome for those outdoor workouts! Just can’t express enough how much I love this watch!!!
Purchased my fenix 2 weeks ago & am still discovering new features. Upgraded from a FR235 & love how it feels a bit smaller yet still strong. Love the virtual run and water sports (sup & surf) activities and that I can actually get feed back on my bike trainer sessions. Great so far - just wish it was a bit more purple!
Accurate GPS, neat features such as sleep tracking
I upgraded my $20 watch last month and I like it. I have a small wrist but it doesn't feel too big. The GPS tracking and training feedback is awesome. It's neat to see how you slept and when the sun rises. I wish things such as the weather saved for more than just 12 hrs without requiring phone data to update. I also wish the cds I already own could be added to the watch instead of only playing purchased songs or Spotify. Overall, a great purchase.
I love my watch! I only gave it 4 stars because the battery life is shorter compare to my Fenix 5. My Fenix 6 does more things which is great. It is also smaller and looks super cute! I thought the solar aspect of the watch would help the battery life but so far it really does not extend the battery life. I only use my pulse ox while sleeping because it eats up the battery. I also keep off the phone alerts because it annoys me. It is great as far GPS. The battery only lasts about 3-4 days. I am a distance runner. I wear my watch all day and night.
The solar version is definitely lighter on the wrist and feature rich as this was an upgrade from the 5s Sapphire. Screen is more visible really like the watch watches available right out of the box! I had a look at the YouTube reviews before making the decision to upgrade. So far I am quite happy with my choice!
