Great watch but miss things from older model
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 ...

I recently got a Garmin Fenix 6X, and while I was duly blown away by the fitness features, one thing I DIDN'T expect was how good the Garmin was a smartwatch device. I'm not talking about super deep integration with my phone or even CIQ apps, but some of the basics just blow "traditional" smart watches out of the water.
Wear OS is making app sideloading much more difficult
Worked well. Then the 2.1 or whatever update came and fucked it. It never really got back up to the quality it had before. Eventually I noticed mine dying in 2-3 hours and just upgraded to a Garmin Fenix 6X.
I wish i can afford to buy another one! Its amazing
Wow.. came from an Apple watch series 4 and this is amazing. Then again they both have their purposes. This watch has held up fine for the past 2 months in Iraq. Solid watch with great battery life, build quality, durability, reliability, packed with useful features etc. i would buy another one just...

I did, and instantly (*by instant I mean the following morning and every night after...*) way better Sleep Tracking. ​. This worked for me, and I believe it could work for many of you. I wear my Fenix 6X on the inside of my opposite wrist now and get real data **every.

I started with a Fitbit Charge 4 that I used for a while and then moved to an Amazfit T-Rex Pro. The Amazfit was really nice, but it would not control music and a workout at the same time. It was a decent watch, but I needed a more serious smart watch and I am not a fan of the Apple Watch. I settled...

My god am I impressed by Garmin compared to Fitbit
My first Smartwstch was a FitBit Ionic... I found their software frustrating if nothing else... when it died (pool swimming, and it was supposed to be waterproof), I got a Garmin Fenix 6X to replace it... now FitBits seem like kids toys to me... I am investing in more Garmin gear - would love a set of the new Rally pedals and a 1030+ computer too, but happy with the watch & sensors for now...

I severely sprained my ankle yesterday during a run. My Garmin Fenix 6X immediately alerted my wife through incident detection even though I didn't take a tumble after the injury. I'm extremely impressed with the incedent detection alert system and would be very handy if something serious did happen. As a very active type one diabetic, this system gives me peace of mind that our Garmin watches will inform our emergency contact of any serious falls or injuries.

Not worth the money.
So first off, I will say that my review is based on the $800 price tag. This is a decent watch and appeared to do the things it claims but for the $800 I was expecting much more. My biggest gripe is with the display. Ironically (or not), I bought and returned the Instinct for the same reason. As Gar...

It breaks up so much, you can't understand what the assistant is saying. Lastly, when I paired with my Garmin Fenix 6x, the connection is terrible and unusable.
