Garmin India, a unit of Garmin Ltd.

A latest addition to Garmin’s burgeoning outdoor segment, the Fēnix 6 series focuses on enhancing users’ outdoor experience with special emphasis on mountain biking, golfing, trail running, hiking, hunting, diving or using satellite communication.

Taking the spotlight with Garmin’s first ever Solar-watch, the fēnix 6X Pro Solar from the series, is designed with Power Glass™, a transparent solar charging lens that uses the sun’s energy to extend battery life. This unique solar charging technology is to ensure more on-wrist time for users, increasing battery performance to an additional 3 days when utilizing the solar charging capabilities.

As the first Garmin GPS watch to offer solar charging, the fēnix 6X Pro Solar edition is designed with Power Glass™, a transparent solar charging lens that uses the sun’s energy to extend battery life. Because of its unique solar charging technology, users will have more on-wrist time to enjoy their activities, training features, colour mapping, music streaming and much more. Users can quickly check the solar harvesting performance of their fēnix right on the wrist.

The battery performance on the fēnix 6X Pro Solar in smartwatch mode is 21 days plus an additional 3 days when utilizing the solar charging capabilities.

Fēnix 6 Series – Pro & Sapphire
The fēnix 6 and fēnix 6X multisport GPS watches feature a rugged, sophisticated design and are constructed for a trimmer, more comfortable fit on the wrist, while increasing the display size to 1.3’’ and 1.4’’ respectively, which is 17 and 36 percent bigger than previous fēnix models. fēnix 6S remains with the 1.2” display, a watch fit for smaller wrists.

In addition to bigger display sizes, Garmin has introduced new QuickFit™, nylon bands and silicone colors. Sapphire editions add the quality and durability of a scratch-resistant sapphire lens and other high-performance premium materials.

Train With PacePro
The Fēnix 6 series introduces the first-of-its-kind PacePro feature, which keeps a runner’s pacing strategy on track with grade-adjusted guidance as they run a course.  Runners can create plans directly from the watch or ahead of time on Garmin Connect™, or Garmin Connect™ Mobile. While running the course, users will be able to see their target split pace, the actual split pace, distance to the next split, and how much time they are ahead/behind on their target, right on the watch face.

Out of the box, the Fēnix series includes TopoActive Europe maps for outdoor adventures, ski maps for over 2,000 ski resorts worldwide, and 41,000 golf courses. Featuring on-device music storage of up to 2,000 songs, allowing users to sync playlists from several of the most popular music services, no phone required.

Improved Battery Life With Power Manager
The new customizable Power Manager allows the user to see and control how various settings and sensors impact battery life. For more confidence before an activity or a long distance trail trunning race, battery remaining can be represented in hours and days to help determine whether the adventure can last until the next charge. Users can adjust their battery saving modes by disabling certain features to extend battery life on the fly. For ambitious athletes, the Fēnix 6 series includes the popular ClimbPro feature, that allows trail runners and cyclists who like to train in hilly areas, gain better awareness of their environment and their performance during climbs.
