Combining the best features of our fitness and outdoor watches, fēnix 6 is the multisport GPS watch that brings cutting-edge design and performance to your fast-paced lifestyle.

The fēnix® 6 multisport GPS watch brings cutting-edge design and performance to your fast-paced lifestyle. It’s contoured for a trimmer, more comfortable fit on your wrist, with easy-to-access features that include enhanced wrist heart rate (the data and information provided by this device is intended to be a close estimation of your activity and metrics tracked, but may not be precisely accurate), built-in activity profiles, VO2 max estimates and more. Plus, you can see how your hard work is paying off with performance metrics and training load balance readings. Satellite navigation and tracking functions combine with a 3-axis compass and barometric altimeter to give you confidence on and off the beaten path. This watch eases from workout to work day with smart notifications (when paired with a compatible smartphone) to keep you connected and Garmin Pay™ contactless payments (not all countries and payment networks are eligible) to free you from carrying cash or credit cards. Customizable power manager lets you see and control how various settings and sensors impact battery life, so you can make battery-extending changes on the fly.

  • Rugged, sophisticated design features an always-on 1.3” (18% larger than previous fēnix models) sunlight-readable display with
    stainless steel bezel and buttons
  • Features enhanced wrist heart rate (the data and information provided by this device is intended to be a close estimation of your activity and metrics tracked, but may not be precisely accurate) and Pulse Ox (this is not a medical device and is not intended for use in the diagnosis or monitoring of any medical condition) sensing of blood oxygen saturation to support advanced sleep monitoring and altitude acclimation at high elevations
  • Performance data at your fingertips includes training load balance, training status, and running and cycling dynamics
  • Navigate the outdoors with built-in sensors for 3-axis compass, gyroscope and barometric altimeter; supports multiple global
    navigation satellite system (GPS, GLONASS and Galileo) to track in more challenging environments than GPS alone
  • Connected features include smart notifications (when paired with a compatible smartphone) and Garmin Pay™ contactless
    payments (not all countries and payment networks are eligible)
  • Battery performance: up to 14 days in smartwatch mode, up to 36 hours in GPS mode, up to 28 days in expedition GPS activity
    mode, and up to 48 days in battery saver watch mode

Wrist-based Heart Rate

Enhanced optical heart rate technology gauges the intensity of your fitness activities as well as heart rate variability to calculate your stress level score. It also tracks under water without a heart rate strap.

Pulse Ox Sensor

For altitude acclimation or sleep monitoring, a Pulse Ox sensor uses light beams at your wrist to gauge how well your body is absorbing oxygen.

Body Battery™ Energy Monitor

Optimize your body’s energy reserves, using heart rate variability, stress, sleep and other data to gauge when you’re ready to be active or when you may need to rest.

Connect IQ™ Store
