These are the smaller and trimmer premium Garmin watches with a more comfortable fit on the wrist. It even has new QuickFit nylon bands and silicone colors. There's an option for the Sapphire editions with scratch-resistant sapphire lens and other high-performance premium materials for added durability.

Garmin also revealed that the fēnix 6 series introduces a "first-of-its-kind" PacePro feature, which keeps a runner’s pacing strategy on track with grade-adjusted guidance as they run a course.

It will also allow runners to create plans directly from the watch or ahead of time using the Garmin Mobile Connect/Mobile.

And of course, it can let you keep track of your goal. For example, while running the course, users will be able to see their target split pace, the actual split pace, distance to the next split, and how much time they are ahead/behind on their target, right on the watch face.

fēnix 6X Pro Solar

As mentioned the fēnix 6X Pro Solar is the top-of-the-line Garmin watch yet. It features rugged, sophisticated design and a large 1.4-inch "sunlight-readable" display.

Oh by the way, did you know that it is called the "Solar" version because it has a solar charging function?

YES, it has a transparent solar charging lens that uses the sun’s energy designed to extend its battery life.

Moreover, there is an option to know in real-time how much solar energy the Power Glass has been exposed to.

By default, it has 21 days of battery life. But when you utilize the solar charging capabilities, it has an extra 3 days of battery life.

During the launch, Garmin officials even claimed that it has up to 90 days of battery life when you use all its power-saving features. That is insane if true!
