Garmin Fenix 6S, 6 vs 6X - Die GrößeThe letter after the version number indicates the size of the Garmin Fenix 6. This was also the case with its predecessors, such as the Fenix 5.
The size refers to the width and length of the clock. The size of the Garmin Fenix 6S is 42 x 42 millimetres. The Fenix 6 measures 47 x 47 millimetres and the Garmin Fenix 6 Pro measures 51 x 51 millimetres.
|Fenix 6S||Fenix 6||Fenix 6X|
|Size||42 x42 x 13,8 mm||47 x 47 x 14,7 mm||51 x 51 x14,9 mm|
|Diameter||1,2" / 30,4 mm||1,3" / 33,02 mm||1,4" / 35,56 mm|
|Resolution||240 x 240 Pixel||260 x 260 Pixel||280 x 280 Pixel|
|Weight (clock)||41 g||57 g||66 g|
|Battery life||9 days||14 days||21 days|
|Battery life with GPS||25 hours||36 hours||60 hours|
|Battery life Saver Mode||34 days||48 days||80 days|
|Waterproof||10 ATM||10 ATM||10 ATM|
In addition, the sizes logically differ in the diameter of the display. This also affects the resolution and, of course, the weight of the watches. Differences can also be noted in the battery life, as you can see in the table.
In short, the Garmin Fenix 6S is the smallest model, the Garmin Fenix 6 the middle model and the Garmin Genix 6X the largest model of the series.
Garmin Fenix 6 vs Fenix 6 ProAll variants (6S, 6 and 6X) are also available as Pro Version. There are also some differences.
MusicThe Pro version offers the advantage of music. You can store music on the Garmin Fenix 6 Pro and control and listen to it directly from the clock. This means that the version also has a much larger memory of 32 gigabytes. With the normal versions, this is only 64 megabytes and can logically not be used as music storage.
In addition to stored music, you can also stream music. Spotify in is also possible here. For this you need WLAN. This is only installed in the Pro version, but does not make much sense in the Basic version.
Sport functionsThe Pro and Sapphire versions offer even more sports functions:
- PacePro Pacing Strategies
- Garmin golf function
- Garmin climbing functions (including ClimbPro Ascent Planner)
- Functions for cyclists (including cycle map)
MapsOn the Garmin Fenix 6 there are also cards directly on the clock. However, only the Garmin Fenix 6 Pro is not able to do this. You don't get it on the Basic version.
Material of the watch and the braceletsIn contrast to the normal versions, the Pro and Saphire Editions have different materials to choose from. This refers to the watch itself and the bracelets.
With the bracelets, however, this is not quite so relevant, as they can be easily changed. This also applies to the normal version of the Garmin Fenix 6. Any 22 millimeter watch straps can be used.
The material of the watch itself is more interesting. Here you have steel, titanium or carbon to choose from. This was already the case with older versions of the Garmin Fenix. Of course this also affects the price.
Garmin Fenix 6 Pro SolarA special feature of the new Garmin Fenix 6 series is the solar version. In the beginning it was only available in combination with the Garmin Fenix 6X Pro. Now there are also the smaller variants 6S and 6 as solar version.
As the name suggests, the Fenix 6 Solar can be charged by solar energy. However, this is not enough for complete charging. The battery life can be prolonged here in solar radiation. The estimated values here vary from 10 to 15 percent.
This is interesting in any case. However, you must also be aware of the higher price. I think in time this technology will prevail and have its advantages. This will also reduce the price of solar to smartwaches.
