With the new fenix 6 line-up from Garmin, they are now offering a host of different options from a base model fenix 6 all the way up to a fenix 6X Pro Solar with, you guessed it, solar charging capabilities. The differences in models can be a little confusing, but here’s the breakdown starting from the top.
fenix 6X Pro Solar
- Solar Charging
- Only one size (51mm)
fenix 6 Pro
- 3 Size Options (6S Pro – 42mm, 6 Pro – 47mm, 6X Pro – 51mm)
- Sapphire Glass Option (this is technically called the fenix 6 Sapphire, but in fact is a Pro model just without the name)
- No maps, music, nor wifi
- 2 Size Options (6S – 42mm & 6 – 47mm)
The video below goes through my first impressions of the fenix 6 Sapphire, which as mentioned above, is in fact a “Pro” model with all those features, just without the Pro name.
