Hello tekies I got my Garmin Fenix 6 today Unlike typical smartwatches in the market, this one has plenty of buttons. There’s three on the left and two on the right. All of them are metal, which matches the premium case. The buttons are there for navigation because it doesn’t have a touch display. More on that later.
Under the watch is a titanium covering that houses the sensors and the charging port. From here, you can also access the latch to remove the strap.
Now, let’s talk about the display. It has a 1.3-inch screen with a 260 x 260 resolution and protected by sapphire glass. Unlike other smartwatches that use AMOLED screens, the Fenix 6 uses a sunlight-visible, transflective memory-in-pixel (MIP) colored screen. The quality isn’t great when you use the LED backlight, but when viewed under a strong light source, like the sun or artificial lighting, it’s one of the clearest displays I’ve ever seen. This is perfect for hiking or running outdoors during the day, as the screen is always visible.
The Fenix 6 Sapphire has a size of 47 x 47 x 14.7 mm. If you like big watches, you’ll love this one. It’s chunky, a bit hefty, but comfortable and very attractive. As for the features, it’s got tons! You have your usual clock features with GPS Time Sync, automatic daylight saving time, and sunrise/sunset times. For sensors, it has GPS, GLONASS, GALILEO, heart rate, barometric altimeter, compass, gyroscope, accelerometer, thermometer, Pulse Ox, and a 10ATM water resistance.
