Garmin introduced a Fenix 6 sports watch with solar charging and large screens
Garmin has announced the Fenix 6 series of sports watches. The devices can be recharged directly from the sun, and special features help extend the battery life. The screens of the watches are large and bright, so they are easy to read in the sun. In addition, new products are able to very accurately track various indicators.
Fenix 6X Pro Solar – the flagship watch in the series. They are equipped with a special lens for charging from the sun, thanks to which the device can work for three days longer. At the same time, the battery itself can withstand 21 days in standard mode and about 15 hours with GPS on. In power saving mode, the watch can work up to 120 days.
Fenix 6 and 6X are more convenient than the similar watches of the previous generation, and are also protected by scratch-resistant sapphire crystal. The 6X has a display size of 1.4 inches. There is also a smaller model called 6S: it has a 1.2-inch screen, and they look more elegant on the hand.
