Description

The newest entry into the do-everything Fenix line blends smartwatch function with advanced training tools and a backcountry GPS. The Fenix 6 has a bigger screen and a more efficient GPS than before. The latest generation Elevate heart rate monitor takes your pulse off your wrist. Heart rate data is used for everything from advanced fitness metrics to daily calorie consumption. When you need more info, or a little motivation, the free Connect app pairs your phone to your watch. Connect lets you download training plans, review activities, receive texts, social media alerts and emails, track the weather and more. The Sapphire-series uses tough sapphire crystal, can play your favourite songs and podcasts and comes loaded with maps. Day-to-day activity tracking, sleep monitoring and music make the Fenix 6 useful every day, not just on training days.
