Not expecting any Garmin announcements during the summer, just before my weekend started i came across the different sites (the5krunner/gpsrumours/activejr) which where all talking about the Fenix 6.
A YouTube video was up and some photo’s where leaked.
According to the various sites the video mentioned the following Fenix 6 models:
- Garmin Fenix 6 / 6 Pro
- Garmin Fenix 6s / 6s Pro
- Garmin Fenix 6x Pro / 6x Pro Solar
While the photo’s showed clear evidence i still had some double so i did a very fast little research and all seems to be true.
Because of the very, very limited time i had i only did the research for what looked the nicest watch for me: the Fenix6 / Fenix 6 pro.
My search result revealed:
- Both a Fenix 6 Pro and a Fenix 6 sapphire exist (marking PRO or SAPPHIRE on the back)
- Fenix 6 Pro has Gorilla Glass
- Same optical HR sensor as Forerunner 945 (and most likely other hardware like GNSS)
- Barometer on right side has slightly changed dual hole input.
- Full set of renders of various Fenix 6 Pro/Sapphire models
- All features of the Forerunner 945 / Fenix Plus 5x (Edit:
even swim OHR was listedswim is only listed in 1 of the 5 sites with the upcoming product info making it more a wish than a fact)(all of the Garmin features are taken from the FR945)
- Is listed in various online shops at the moment so SOON to be released!
As the rumours seem true i will try to get hold of the Fenix 6S and Fenix 6X information
next monday asap. Little info: There are indeed 3 different (main) series which will lauch on the same day.
