This feature-packed $700 watch has a 42mm frame. It has a 1.2” sunlight-readable display with bezels in stainless steel, titanium or diamond-like carbon (DLC) coating. The biggest improvement on the Fenix 6 Series is the revamped interface, which still maintains Garmin’s characteristic look and feel, reports Digital Trends.

The important metrics like temperature, altimeter, barometer, heart rate and battery, are all arranged right on the screen of the watch’s new and improved clock face. The data displayed is large enough to see but compact enough so that it doesn’t get in the way of the time and date.

The fenix 6 series introduces a first-of-its-kind PacePro feature, which keeps a runner’s pacing strategy on track with grade-adjusted guidance as they run a course. Runners can create plans directly from the watch or ahead of time on Garmin Connect™ or Garmin Connect Mobile. While running the course, users will be able to see their target split pace, the actual split pace, distance to the next split, and how much time they are ahead/behind on their target, right on the watch face.

If you’re climbing, you can turn on ClimbPro to check how many feet you have to left to ascend.

The new battery manager lets you manage your battery efficiently. For example, if you need your batter to last longer, simply choose the Expedition Mode. This mode for extended GPS tracking will disable Bluetooth, turn off the screen, and ping GPS every hour.

Fenix 6S Pro also has fall detection that detects when you fall and notify others.

The watch also comes with Garmin Pay contactless payments, music storage with premium streaming service (may require subscription with third-party music provider) support, smart notifications and more.
