Quality by design
The rugged yet sophisticated design features a large 1.2-inch display and is tested to u.s. military standards for thermal, shock and water resistance.
Fit the look to your lifestyle with a stylish stainless steel bezel.
Push performance to a whole new level.
Use preloaded activity profiles for trail running, swimming, running, biking, hiking, rowing, skiing, golfing, surfing, indoor climbing and more.
Stay informed when you’re in the snow. This preloaded profile can distinguish between skiing and climbing. It automatically shows metrics specific to either ascent or descent.
Track the details of every ride with mountain biking metrics plus specialised grit and flow measurements that rate trail difficulty and how smoothly you descend, giving you a score to beat next time.
Get ready to catch some waves. Fēnix 6s solar works with surfline sessions™, which creates a video of every wave you ride in front of a surfline® camera, so you can watch them later and see how you did.
This watch features easy-to-follow, animated cardio, strength, yoga and pilates workouts you can view on the watch screen. Choose from preloaded animated workouts, or download more from our garmin connect™ online community.
Wrist-based heart rate
Get heart rate data1 along with alerts if your heart rate stays too high or too low while you’re at rest. Gauge how hard your heart is working during activities, even underwater.
Body battery™ energy monitor
Optimise your body’s energy reserves, using heart rate variability, stress, sleep and other data to gauge when you’re ready to be active or when you may need to rest.
Log daily fluid intake as a reminder to stay hydrated. When auto goal is enabled, you’ll even see estimated sweat loss after an activity, and your goal will adjust accordingly.
Menstrual cycle tracking
Use the garmin connect app to track your cycle, log physical and emotional symptoms and learn about training and nutrition during each phase of your cycle. Even get cycle tracking information on your wrist.
View advanced training metrics that include running dynamics, recovery advisor and more1. Even estimate your heat- and altitude-adjusted vo2 max.
A first-of-its-kind pacepro feature helps keep you on pace with grade-adjusted guidance as you run a course.
View how various settings and sensors impact your watch’s battery life, so you can make battery-extending changes on the fly.
Get up to 9 days of battery life while indoors or up to 10.5 days when solar charging3 in smartwatch mode. In gps mode, get 25 hours indoors or 28 hours when solar charging4.
You reach new heights. Your watch goes with you.
Use climbpro ascent planner on downloaded courses to see real-time information on your current and upcoming climbs, including gradient, distance and elevation gain.
Access multiple global navigation satellite systems (gps, glonass and galileo) to track in more challenging environments than gps alone.
Navigate your next trail with abc sensors, including an altimeter for elevation data, barometer to monitor weather and three-axis electronic compass.
Pulse ox sensor
For altitude acclimation or sleep monitoring, a pulse ox2 sensor uses light beams at your wrist to gauge how well your body is absorbing oxygen.
This widget shows your current elevation, acclimated elevation and correlated pulse ox2, heart rate1 and respiration rate, so you can see how you’re holding up to the current elevation.
See how you’re breathing throughout the day, during sleep and during breathwork and yoga activities.
Trek far and wide between recharges. Expedition mode, an ultralow-powered gps reference, lasts for weeks.
You’ll feel a connection in more ways than one.
Receive emails, texts and alerts right on your watch when paired with a compatible device.
Store up to 2,000 songs, or access streaming apps from your compatible services including spotify®, deezer and amazon music, and listen through headphones with bluetooth® technology.
