abunda_amazon_reviews Changed my rating from 4 to 5 stars because I have been able to make actionable tweaks on my daily life based on the new information collected by the F6x during activities and sleeping. Plus, the GPS gets a lock super fast when outside. It is truly a great watch and while I do miss some things from the F3 HR, they are minor and the F6x is an all around improvement from the older model. Coming from a Fenix 3 HR, was hoping the Fenix to Fenix upgrade/migration process would be super smooth. Like custom activities would just carry over or even the default watch face would be the same. Neither are true and while I figured out how to create a custom activity, within Connect it does not list the custom name like it did with the F3. There are no watch faces that are similar to the simple but perfect digital face of the F3 HR. My biggest issue with the F6x default digital face is the way the minutes are not inline with the hour. Yet, the digital face for the F6 Solar looks exactly what is expected, minus the sun gauge in the middle. My ask of Garmin is to make the F6x Solar default digital (with the hours and minutes inline and the other data fields around it) face shown available to other F6x users, of course without the solar. Let's move onto appearance and the Fenix 3 HR has a matte grey bezel that can be worn with anything (business suits to shorts) while the F6x Sapphire grey bezel is quite shiny for almost a blued finish... yuk. The shipping watch band of the F6x sapphire has notches while the older style band has a nicer feel, thankfully was able to quickly swap. If you are purchasing for the pulse ox (assuming the battery is at 100%) turning it on will take the battery from 21 to 15 days. Changing the other pulse ox setting to continuous will further tax the battery from 15 to 10 days. Not a fan of the F6 charging cable and strongly prefer the old style F3 cradle due to cable length and the new cable places the watch in an awkward angle that feels like it will break off or weaken the connection. Compared to my F3, doing the same cardio activity (MMA) with the same HRM strap used with the F3 HR, the F6x is reading about 50-80 more calories burned. Not sure if the F6x is accounting for temperature (the gym is always same temp) and other biometrics including pulse ox. Did my usual run (without HRM) in identical conditions and there was a 38 calorie reduction from F3 to F6. Based on feedback from other 6x users, tested the heart rate against Precor gym equipment and it was exactly the same and across all ranges. The watch screen is extremely clear and readable. During the same MMA activity, because of the screen size and clarity, can see HR from a distance. It is also less bulky on my wrist versus the F3 HR, but would prefer to have a larger battery versus reduced size. The F6x alarm clock vibration strength and tones wake me up much better than the F3. Did not purchase the solar model due to the purplish tint on the face and concern that it was not as scratch/break resistant compared to the Sapphire models as my F3 HR Sapphire never had any scratches or cracks during 3+ years of continuous use. Hoping Garmin reads these comments and makes improvements. The F3 HR was life changing for me back in March 2016, but with this F6x Sapphire in Carbon Grey with black band, want to see the F6x Sapphire in Black in person that comes with the leather strap (assuming the black is a matte finish) for cosmetic reasons. To build on the life changing comment, the ability to track sleep is not fully appreciated. Attached two screenshots of my sleep while using the 6x. Very accurate (even with pulse ox) and something the Apple Watch CANNOT do, even with the gen 5. Any physical exertion must have recovery time. After having this watch for more than two weeks now (since Sept 5th), my only gripes with it is the shiny carbon grey (to me its light grey) bezel and the default digital face need Garmin's attention from an otherwise great product. Update: Originally had issues with iOS 13.0 with Connect locking up and not snycing, but since 13.1 it corrected both. Have since updated my phone to iOS 13.1.2 (9/30/19), Garmin 6x firmware 4.10 update, and the latest version of Connect 4.23.2. Have been using the 6x completely problem free.;;Reviewed in the United States on September 5, 2019;;5.0 out of 5 stars;;Great watch but miss things from older model;;JP;;/gp/customer-reviews/RFGP6BFQMELY4/ref=cm_cr_dp_d_rvw_ttl?ie=UTF8&ASIN=B07WL4ZHQB;;;While I haven't had too much time with the watch, what time I have spent with it has been pretty good so far. Unboxing it and getting everything synced up has been what you would expect with most smart watch and phone pairing, with the addition in being able to connect the watch to a local wifi. I'm really impressed with the nylon strap that came with it, glad I went with this choice! There is an additional rubber/silicone watch strap included which is neat but I'm set on the feel and toughness of the nylon strap for the foreseeable future. Since it had a decent charge right out of the box I went ahead and took it on a routine 3 mile run to see how well it recorded. It was right on point for distance traveled and was able to get the entire path synced to the phone once it was close enough. I am really impressed in the amount of insight provided from the run data, everything from pace, speed, timing, heart rate, cadence, and a slew of graphs on both the phone app and the website. Also found the Pulse OX (blood/oxygen level) measuring, health stats, and V02 Max to be pretty great addition and functioning with no issues so far. Notifications, phone call management, text responses, etc is pretty much on the same level you would expect from any smart watch. Tested the NFC Garmin Wallet and found that while USAA's debit cards didn't work, Amazon Prime's credit card worked without issue. It's likely any Chase card to that extent would also work without issue. One thing to note- in order to pay from the watch you have to engage the wallet app on the watch which activates the NFC payment function. Tested payments from both at a store and a vending machine without any issues. Tested the music function, I was able to hook it up to my Ubuntu laptop and transfer some MP3's on over without issue. Thought that was pretty neat that I could just plug it right up and it was recognized as a music device without any additional driver downloads. Syncing to a pair of bluetooth 4.1 headphones didn't have any issues, sound is good, and music controls is about what you expect when it comes to managing playback. I haven't had the chance to test and see how well it will work once I'm out on a run, or even in situations where I would have the watch covered under a sleeve or coat. I'll make sure to update if there's any issues. I haven't had as much time with the mapping or navigation features, but plan on getting some planned routes tested soon. I did test out the workout tracking features and found it was hit or miss on picking up reps. It was quicker to count big ranged motions like squats and situps, but not pull-ups, benching, or curling. Since it still let you progress along a workout without needing to hit a certain number I didn't have any issues with the lack of tracked reps. Almost forgot to mention, you can build your workout plans both on the phone app and from the website which is pretty cool and useful. Haven't really tested the watch submerged in water yet, but for what its worth there was no issues running it through the shower. Once I have a few hikes and other features tested I'll update the review.

Changed my rating from 4 to 5 stars because I have been able to make actionable tweaks on my daily life based on the new information collected by the F6x during activities and sleeping. Plus, the GPS gets a lock super fast when outside. It is truly a great watch and while I do miss some things from the F3 HR, they are minor and the F6x is an all around improvement from the older model. Coming from a Fenix 3 HR, was hoping the Fenix to Fenix upgrade/migration process would be super smooth. Like custom activities would just carry over or even the default watch face would be the same. Neither are true and while I figured out how to create a custom activity, within Connect it does not list the custom name like it did with the F3. There are no watch faces that are similar to the simple but perfect digital face of the F3 HR. My biggest issue with the F6x default digital face is the way the minutes are not inline with the hour. Yet, the digital face for the F6 Solar looks exactly what is expected, minus the sun gauge in the middle. My ask of Garmin is to make the F6x Solar default digital (with the hours and minutes inline and the other data fields around it) face shown available to other F6x users, of course without the solar. Let's move onto appearance and the Fenix 3 HR has a matte grey bezel that can be worn with anything (business suits to shorts) while the F6x Sapphire grey bezel is quite shiny for almost a blued finish... yuk. The shipping watch band of the F6x sapphire has notches while the older style band has a nicer feel, thankfully was able to quickly swap. If you are purchasing for the pulse ox (assuming the battery is at 100%) turning it on will take the battery from 21 to 15 days. Changing the other pulse ox setting to continuous will further tax the battery from 15 to 10 days. Not a fan of the F6 charging cable and strongly prefer the old style F3 cradle due to cable length and the new cable places the watch in an awkward angle that feels like it will break off or weaken the connection. Compared to my F3, doing the same cardio activity (MMA) with the same HRM strap used with the F3 HR, the F6x is reading about 50-80 more calories burned. Not sure if the F6x is accounting for temperature (the gym is always same temp) and other biometrics including pulse ox. Did my usual run (without HRM) in identical conditions and there was a 38 calorie reduction from F3 to F6. Based on feedback from other 6x users, tested the heart rate against Precor gym equipment and it was exactly the same and across all ranges. The watch screen is extremely clear and readable. During the same MMA activity, because of the screen size and clarity, can see HR from a distance. It is also less bulky on my wrist versus the F3 HR, but would prefer to have a larger battery versus reduced size. The F6x alarm clock vibration strength and tones wake me up much better than the F3. Did not purchase the solar model due to the purplish tint on the face and concern that it was not as scratch/break resistant compared to the Sapphire models as my F3 HR Sapphire never had any scratches or cracks during 3+ years of continuous use. Hoping Garmin reads these comments and makes improvements. The F3 HR was life changing for me back in March 2016, but with this F6x Sapphire in Carbon Grey with black band, want to see the F6x Sapphire in Black in person that comes with the leather strap (assuming the black is a matte finish) for cosmetic reasons. To build on the life changing comment, the ability to track sleep is not fully appreciated. Attached two screenshots of my sleep while using the 6x. Very accurate (even with pulse ox) and something the Apple Watch CANNOT do, even with the gen 5. Any physical exertion must have recovery time. After having this watch for more than two weeks now (since Sept 5th), my only gripes with it is the shiny carbon grey (to me its light grey) bezel and the default digital face need Garmin's attention from an otherwise great product. Update: Originally had issues with iOS 13.0 with Connect locking up and not snycing, but since 13.1 it corrected both. Have since updated my phone to iOS 13.1.2 (9/30/19), Garmin 6x firmware 4.10 update, and the latest version of Connect 4.23.2. Have been using the 6x completely problem free.

Amazingly lite rugged fitness orientated smart watch
While I haven't had too much time with the watch, what time I have spent with it has been pretty good so far. Unboxing it and getting everything synced up has been what you would expect with most smart watch and phone pairing, with the addition in being able to connect the watch to a local wifi. I'm really impressed with the nylon strap that came with it, glad I went with this choice! There is an additional rubber/silicone watch strap included which is neat but I'm set on the feel and toughness of the nylon strap for the foreseeable future. Since it had a decent charge right out of the box I went ahead and took it on a routine 3 mile run to see how well it recorded. It was right on point for distance traveled and was able to get the entire path synced to the phone once it was close enough. I am really impressed in the amount of insight provided from the run data, everything from pace, speed, timing, heart rate, cadence, and a slew of graphs on both the phone app and the website. Also found the Pulse OX (blood/oxygen level) measuring, health stats, and V02 Max to be pretty great addition and functioning with no issues so far. Notifications, phone call management, text responses, etc is pretty much on the same level you would expect from any smart watch. Tested the NFC Garmin Wallet and found that while USAA's debit cards didn't work, Amazon Prime's credit card worked without issue. It's likely any Chase card to that extent would also work without issue. One thing to note- in order to pay from the watch you have to engage the wallet app on the watch which activates the NFC payment function. Tested payments from both at a store and a vending machine without any issues. Tested the music function, I was able to hook it up to my Ubuntu laptop and transfer some MP3's on over without issue. Thought that was pretty neat that I could just plug it right up and it was recognized as a music device without any additional driver downloads. Syncing to a pair of bluetooth 4.1 headphones didn't have any issues, sound is good, and music controls is about what you expect when it comes to managing playback. I haven't had the chance to test and see how well it will work once I'm out on a run, or even in situations where I would have the watch covered under a sleeve or coat. I'll make sure to update if there's any issues. I haven't had as much time with the mapping or navigation features, but plan on getting some planned routes tested soon. I did test out the workout tracking features and found it was hit or miss on picking up reps. It was quicker to count big ranged motions like squats and situps, but not pull-ups, benching, or curling. Since it still let you progress along a workout without needing to hit a certain number I didn't have any issues with the lack of tracked reps. Almost forgot to mention, you can build your workout plans both on the phone app and from the website which is pretty cool and useful. Haven't really tested the watch submerged in water yet, but for what its worth there was no issues running it through the shower. Once I have a few hikes and other features tested I'll update the review. Tested with: Pixel 3a Thinkpad X1 Carbon (Ubuntu) ISOtunes bluetooth earbuds

[Update]I returned the watch.
[Update] I returned the item and received refund from Amazon. If you're interested in buying fenix 6 version, I suggest you should do your research in Garmin Forum. I found the same complaints about HR and PulseOx. I wanted to upgrade my 5s to 6s pro for my high attitude training, but I'll wait and continue to use my 5s (fenix 5s is a pretty stable reliable watch). [Original review] I bought fenix 6s pro Sapphire version. The watch arrived on 8/31. In a day or so, I noticed the watch was not recording my heart rates. I re-started it and syned with GarminExpress/GarminConnect, and it started to record heart rates again. This kept happaening and it got worse on 9/8, and finally I shipped it back to Amaon. I have used 5s sapphire version for a few years and known how to use and take care of Garmin multi-sports watch. This type of problems never happened with fenix 5s. Heat rate monitoring is a basic funtion. It shouldn't be diffficult to make the watch to record my heart rates. As I saw good customer reviews here, I thought I maybe got a defective one in a bad batch. I requested a replacement. I'm waiting for a response from Amaon. I attached the photo of my hear rate record of September 8 that shows the line is cut off multiple times of the day and the watch didn't record my heart rates for hours from midnight.
