be interesting to see if they upgrade the screens and if the new Marq model gets that ...
Yeah, agreed, that will be a monster that'll cause most current garmin owners to upgrade, and create a stampede of people on the sidelines who've been thinking of switching from apple and/or getting a fitness watchWhile it will be expensive, if the Fenix Solar comes to fruition..watch out.
Wow, released Aug 29th, that's a heck of a lot sooner than 2020Confirmed:
ha - that' why i copied the text and pulled over the pics, I thought that might happen ... but interesting part is the pre-order capability and the release date of Aug 29th. Was that a mistake? A tentative, not confirmed date?link no longer works
solar one indicated in the link below Fenix 6X Solar
Looks GREAT Nemo!!I don't feel like I need to wear a Diving Computer big 51mm saucer anymore those days.
Super slick nemo!I loved my Fenix 5X and 5X+ to the Instinct which is a great great tool for a great price.
great info! Now i'm on the fence ... if I may ask, what's your wrist size?And BTW, my 6'4" 250 pound frame seems to like the size of this watch just fine ;-)
I'm more an Android 'out of ecosystems' kind of user.
Garmin propose in the Instinct, the Fenix and other MARQ, Tactix, Descent.... a really elegant solution: screen which can be used without backlight and five buttons to replace a touchscreen.
These two differences make all the charm in my experience with Fenix and Instinct.
Oooo I like this! What band is it?Another band swapped.
This time inspired by Gaijin (again) a Seiko diver style.
I like the way it starts larger than the horns.
It gives a really toolish look too.
I'm looking at the same thing ...I'm trying to decide between the Fenix 6 titanium or the fr 945. I think the case is about the same size but I know the Fenix is heavier. Do you find the Fenix 6 to be ok for weight training type workouts ?
It doesn't ruin your routine, it ruins your data:I'm kinda doubting that the less than 0.1 lb difference is going to ruin anyone's weight training routine.
The Instinct not connecting to the CIQ store is one of the best things about it.
How would you say the fenix 6 hrm compares to the instinct? I know all wrist monitors are kinda iffy but my instinct is terrible compared to my AW 4 hrm. Mine will show resting heart rate on the rower or indoor bike even if i'm about to stroke. Is the F6 hrm any better?
I'm waiting for CES, then I think i'll go with the Instinct ... I'm interested to see if Garmin does the new Fenix with OLED; they should, nobody cares about battery life. Give me OLED-Ti for the win.I've never had an issue with my HR but the last beta 5.74 seems to fix other people's problems. That said, you're always going to get a more accurate reading with a Cheat HRM but IMO, the Fenix series is a solid lineup of watches.
CES is this week, so maybe wait until Friday to see if Garmin comes out with anything (Fenix 6 sport...but is highly doubtful as this screams an August release...but your never know) new.
Oh, I'm pretty sure the next Fenix (and/or Marq) will have an OLED option cause the "fenix design" is $$ - Gamin ain't in the business of selling high design principles.Mixing Oled and Fenix is a proof of not understanding the Fenix design.
Wow Nemo, kinda harsh, apologies if I hit a sensitive spot; I completely understand the original Fenix "outdoor" target market and resulting product design, but that time is clearly over and here's how we know, first the facts:You don't need backlight with Fenix or Instinct and this is mandatory to use those tool watches without any battery consuming backlight. This is mandatory for a good outdoor watch ... But why I'm wasting my time ? So really you cannot understand what it is all about.
