Garmin Fenix 6/6S Pro Solar Review: What’s new & different

 

Today Garmin has extended the solar option on the Fenix 6 series to include the Fenix 6S Pro and Fenix 6 Pro units, completing the family that started last year with the Fenix 6X Pro Solar. Now all three Pro units offer a solar-equipped option. In...

However, with the Fenix 6/6S/6X Pro Solar editions specifically, it’s hard to really see the benefit of solar in day to day situations. Sure, on bright sunny summer days with 8-10 hours of strong sunlight outdoor time you’ll definitely see a benefit....

Garmin Fenix 6 Pro Solar Review

 

The Fenix 6 Pro Solar is the latest top end fitness tracker from Garmin. It's a modest upgrade on the Fenix 6 Pro that wowed us last year, and that's no bad thing. Though the refinements made are modest at a glance, they add up to make the already...

Garmin Fenix 6 Pro Solar review: Sun-powered superbness

 

The Solar series adds some sun-powered backup to the Fenix, making one of the most accomplished sportswatches even better - and more expensive!

Epic battery life - aided by the sun ; Solid and watertight build ; Plethora of tracking options ; Mapping and PacePro are great features ; Interface is easy to digest

Music services still limited ; Garmin Pay is fiddly to use compared to other contactless systems ; Expensive

This solar-powered outdoors smartwatch is essentially the same as the regular Fenix 6 Pro, except you get additional battery refilling from being exposed to the sun. It's a remarkable watch, albeit a pricey one.

Garmin Fenix 6 Pro Solar Review

 

The Garmin Fenix 6 Pro Solar is a feature-packed fitness tracker, but can it really be worth the astronomical asking price?

— Unbelievable battery life, near-indestructible design, excellent fitness features

— Extravagant price, limited smartwatch functionality

The Garmin Fenix 6 Pro Solar offers the best fitness tracking in the business, giving you all the information and advice that you need to get the most out of your workouts. But so it should; anything less than that would render the price extortionate....

Solar battery, ski resort maps, and expedition mode are just a few of its insane features.

Built-in solar charging • Top-of-the-line activity tracking and mapping • Battery saving mode

Heavy device • Heart rate monitor isn't reliable • Significant investment

The Garmin Fenix 6 Pro Solar caters to extreme, niche, and data-driven athletes and adventurers.
