Garmin Fenix 6: Design and interface

The Fenix 6 isn’t too much of a break from the overall design language of the range – but it has been improved in nearly every way. Whether you go regular, pro or solar, it weighs in 83g for the steel version or 72g with a titanium case to make it lighter than the Fenix 5

Away from the hardware, Garmin has been making improvements on the operating system front that will change the way you interact with the Fenix 6. In a good way. The menus have been given a lick of paint making them more useful than before.

Scrolling down through your daily data offers more of an overview, so instead of cycling through single screens for every metric (training status, weather, calendar, heart data), they’re presented as a list so information is more glanceable.

Garmin Fenix 6: Mapping and navigation

In addition, zooming in and out is a painful experience on the watch, requiring a combination of button bashing not witnessed since entering Mega Drive cheat codes. There’s no pinch and zoom as the Fenix isn’t touchscreen, so having a quick zoom out requires serious effort.Buy the Garmin Fenix 6 Best price online from CELLULAR KENYA,Nairobi

If you’re mapping yourself via a GPX, it does make the experience a lot better, but it’s one that ironically works better with the sprawl of roads in built up areas, rather than out in the wilderness. Where previously we’ve struggled to navigate through cities using GPS waypoints, that’s improved immeasurably by the mapping.

Garmin Fenix 6: Running

The great thing about the Fenix is that it puts everything you get from Garmin’s Forerunner watch range into a more durable and robust design. The big difference between something like the Fenix and Garmin’s top end Forerunner has been the difference in size. But that difference in stature is not as extreme as it once was.
