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.

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.

Next Generation Garmin Excellence
I have had many Garmin devices over the year, this is my 4th watch from Garmin, and by far the best. The battery life is amazing and the features you get are by far not always necessary but very useful. The measure of your O2 in your blood has shown some good benefits, but not the reason I bought it. The only downfall is that the screen isn't a touch screen, but getting used to the controls isn't a difficult feat. The watch is comfortable to wear and very accurate in the heartrate monitoring.

I give it a mixed review
For me, the jury is still out. I have not worn an electronic watch in over 20 years but thought I'd give it a try. I like that it is Garmin and maps are integral and well executed. The watch has more features than anyone can use, although the pdf manual does not provide adequate instructions on all of the capabilities. You just have to play with the watch. I have no idea how long the learning curve is, to learn some of the more esoteric capabilities. What I like least is daytime use, but indoors, provides a very dim display unless you hit the backlight, a nuisance. I could turn gesture on all of the time although I wonder about the battery impact. I have tried all of the onboard faces and a few of the iqConnect faces, with the same issue on all of them. The customizable faces make for a big plus though. Not a lot available for the 6x yet. If it were not for mapping and navigation, I would send this back as it is very slanted to fitness stuff, which I do not need. I will probably grow into this, but I would not recommend it unless you are already accustomed to a fitness watch.

Great but with infant problems
I am an enthusiastic user of the Garmin smart watches and the entire eco system. I was using the Fenix 5X in the past 18 months and was very happy with it. So obviously I could not resist the 6 and bought the 6X Saphire. It is a great looking watch, with a much larger display and super cool additional features. I anyhow give it a lower rating for functionality since it has the same problems my Fenix 5x used to have in the beginning and which were only fixed by updates over time: - unstable bluetooth connection to phone - unstable synchronization with phone - very unstable pairing with my Bose headset, took me 2 hours to get this right and it keeps losing the connection - random interrupts in music streaming to the connected headphones It is sad that Garmin always launches such unstable unfinished product.

Solid Upgrade to the Fenix 5 Series
My wife doesn't like this watch on me; she calls me Flava Flav. I LOVE it, though. The larger display and PulseOX monitor along with respiration tracking make this a solid upgrade to the Fenix 5 series (which, for me, was an upgrade to the Fenix 3HR). I've seen reviews saying that the display isn't readable in direct sunlight; I put in 24 miles on my bike today, and at no point was the display hard to read. YMMV. Battery life, by comparison to previous models, is AMAZING, even with all features enabled. Highly recommended!

Improvements over my previous version
I had the Fenix 3X Sapphire. It was still working after four years. I had been following the Fenix 6X online, deciding if I wanted to get it. I decided that since my 3X was working well, I did not need to pay for the 6X. Well, I received the 6X as a gift for Christmas. Wow! I do love it. Nearly every feature that I used in the 3X has been improved. The battery life, mapping function, number of fitness apps are all improved. I use my device primarily for running, hiking, walking, cycling and gym-studio workouts. I would recommend this product if you are able to work it into your budget.
