Analysis and handling of the fenix 6 from Garmin.

In presentation

You may find that the connected watches are identical, with a small screen, rather fragile and not very evolutionary?Does it seem complicated to you to find your way through all the possible choices?

Several weak points on this watch :
– Its weight/size
– Little functionality for health monitoring
– Its daily use
– Few sport-oriented features
– The impossibility of putting new applications

This article will help you see more clearly.

Is the fenix 6 compatible with healthy use?

Connected watches have become excellent tools for health analysis, which you would not normally expect from a product like this.They may or may not be coupled with other devices such as the telephone or computer.
Following our tests, this fenix 6 has a low score for healthy use.That doesn’t in any way prevent you from buying it for aesthetic reasons.

The operating system remains the weak point of the watches produced by Fossil; and this fenix 6 is no exception.The use is less intuitive than with other watches.We would have preferred something more conventional.
You will therefore have to go through an acclimatization phase on the interface before taking full advantage of this watch.
This model does not have a sleep measurement.
Having an accelerometer, the watch will be able to monitor your physical health.This will allow you to interpret your movements during the day.That is to say that the gestures of the hand or arms will be translated into movement, synchronized to your health application and will give rise to health advice.
It can monitor your heart rate, movements and then transmit this data to the associated application.
With no ECG function, this model does not allow you to see the heartbeat curve.

Is this watch useful in everyday life?

Are you still sceptical about buying an intelligent watch because you doubt its real need?Besides, you don’t know if you’ll need it every day.This is precisely what the fenix 6 test shows.
The model designed by Garmin offers an entry-level product.It is one of the worst models available on the market today.
This model comes standard with GPS.Something that some say is superfluous, but nice.The counterpart of this option is that the range will decrease if the active GPS mode is still selected.
An important point on the waterproofing side, the manufacturer did not want it to operate underwater.
The manufacturer proposes this new original model with a round face.This smartwatch offers a pleasant design with a dial large enough to read the information.You personalize the look and style of the watch to suit your taste.
Garmin opted for a watch without the reinforced glass option; this is regrettable.
There is no wireless battery charging function.
You don’t have a touch screen on this watch.It’s an easy watch to wear.It is one of the lightest (92 grams) in this range.
The NFC option is not integrated in this watch connected, which means no contactless payment.
Last point about the features; this is the music function.The manufacturer did not consider it necessary to insert it.

Garmin’s smartwatch: a good choice for sports?

A connected watch can allow you to keep track of your sporting activity, but not only that.It is a product with many advantages.Is fenix 6 a new electronic gadget?
This new model is not for those who play sports on a regular basis.Even for the occasional sportsman, this watch won’t do.
As for its weight, it’s rather low down in the rankings; its 92 grams make it one of the heaviest smartwatches.
It includes GPS tracking.This will allow you to navigate easily, even when you are travelling.
Due to the absence of a SIM, you will not be able to track tracking data directly from the wristwatch.A disadvantage that turns into an advantage in terms of the battery life that will be extended.
Its gyroscope will allow you to analyze the movements made during the day.
With the altimeter function, the analysis of efforts on mountain sports will be facilitated.
Another positive point of the Fossil watches is the presence of heart rate monitoring.

On the music side, it is also important to specify that this watch does not allow music to be played.

The watch and possible applications

There are different operating systems installed on smartwatches.Associated applications do not allow the same types of use.Applications that may correspond to health monitoring but also to the measurement of performance in sports.
This model is not really designed to install new applications.
Due to its proprietary operating system, you will not be able to add other applications to this connected watch.Also, apart from the original applications, there is no possibility of having any others.
The screen is of sufficient size – 1.3 inches, and the data is displayed correctly.It is one of the very light watches, easy to wear with its 92 grams.
And if you need an application in addition to those installed by default, you will have to turn to another model.However, it remains a simple and cheap product for basic uses.

Finally, The fenix 6…

At the end of our tests, we can only conclude that this watch corresponds to an entry-level product.It’s fast, inexpensive, and easy to replace if you see your need changes.
The weak points of this connected watch are :- Its weight/size
– Little functionality for health monitoring
– Its daily use
– Not enough sport-oriented features
– The impossibility of putting new applications
