Garmin Fenix 6 Review: 16 New Things To Know (Base/Pro/Solar) 2022

December 30, 2022

Full Massive Review:
Fenix 6 on Amazon:

Here’s everything you need to know about the new Fenix 6 Series lineup – both Pro and Base, as well as the solar model. I discuss how solar works (and where it works best), plus the new PacePro features. Not to mention the new battery life modes and functions (of which there are four core totally different features). Plus the Expedition and Battery Saver functionality, as well as popularity/heatmap displays. Oh, and full map themes too!

All in I’ve got 16 new things to know – though in reality it’s far more than that. Don’t forget to hit up the full review as well up above for even more details around GPS & heart rate accuracy and plenty more.

  1. Hey folks – thanks for watching! Don't forget to hit up the full review with all the accuracy and related testing here:

  2. You are a great content creator. We learn very useful and detailed information on the web page or on the youtube channel. I am very grateful for that.

  3. Totally useless solar panels.

  4. What an awesome guy! Thanks for the review

  5. I was excite about this watch but unfortunately the Garmin Express was unable to update anything on the watch and I had to return it.

  6. I just bought mine 3 years later…lol

  7. nice green screen in the beginning

  8. Hi Ray, big fan, thanks for all the reviews you’ve done over the years. I’m looking at purchasing a Fenix 6x Sapphire now that the prices have dropped dramatically. Are they still a good watch or is the tech now a bit dated? Appreciate your thoughts

    Thank you Mr Rainmaker, you’ve done a great job explaining about this watch, ai have just purchased one and this video comes very handy, much easier than reading the manual… many thanks.


  13. Hello Ray,
    Have an question a couple of weeks ago the fenix 6 got an update, after that there's a new feature in garmin connect.
    Walk/run its measures if you walk or run or inactive during a run. But the data isn't right how can I change that?

  14. Dude, beautiful nature in the background!

  15. Nacho cheese dispenser 😂😂😂

  16. Lol nacho cheese dispenser hey?!! 😝😝😝

  17. Nacho cheese!! Take my money.

  18. 6x pro vs Apple Watch series 6 optical reader. I run my heart rate, no strap, on this morning heart rate run, my Garmin alerted me I was high at 120 which is good but it just kept going higher, top off at 167, meanwhile wearing Apple Watch on other wrist the rate showed I was at 109, and based on my breathing and talking the 109 is correct. People on Facebook are telling me get a strap which is not a problem but do you see a trend with optical sensors on Garmin watches. I like the convenience of the optical sensor but that’s a big difference when you run by heart rate. Thanks for listening

  19. Hi, thank you for the video, I actually have a Garmin Fenix 6 sapphire, however, all settings on Garmin are very similar. Can you please help me with the dual grid on how to keep it on display? as when it's activated on the ground it seems to return to my watch face having me press the GPS button again for coordinates which is not beneficial for my line of work. Many thanks I will look forward to your response.

  20. I don't understand what the advantage of 'widget glances' is. They show very little information compared to a full-screen widget and due to the circular screen, you generally have to scroll to the widget you're interested in in particular in order to see what little information it does show. All I find that this achieves in effect is to put another press of the start button between the user and the first full page of the widget, after scrolling to it.

  21. "added nacho cheese despenser", I like it, good humor hahaha

  22. Can you tell me what material the back of this watch is made of? Is it nickel free?

  23. Nacho cheese 😬😆

  24. upgrading now; must have that nacho cheese dispenser!

  25. Hi, do you know if the HIIT (from the Venu 2) is also available on the Fenix 6 or on the Garmin app?
    Kind regards, Jimmy

  26. The NCD is what sold me on this (Nacho Cheese Dispenser)

  27. I guess this watch is probably outdated by now – but I was hoping I could get some input. I want a new watch, primarily for running, but also everyday use. The Garmin Fenix 6 and the Polar Vantage M2 are now almost the same price in my country. I much prefer the look and weight of the M2, but everybody loves the Fenix series so much. Would it be stupid to buy the M2 when they're essentially the same price? If I do, what do I miss out on? Hoping some kind folks would be able to advice me 🙂

  28. You are the GO TO GUY for these reviews.

    I purchased a Garmin Instinct after one of your videos and it was perfect for hiking and biking and running. I only wish they’d add a surf option without buying a new watch.

    But, the Fenix 6 seems like a good upgrade and has surf capabilities.

  29. Great review – Thanks

  30. "Big ball golf"… you do realize it's not the ball that's bigger right 😉


  32. Wow! That is some watch. A watch for Galileo….he was the first person to wear a clock on a chain around his neck (-;. What do you think about the medical data…does it do a good job? Sleep data? Blood pressure monitor?

  33. Last time I checked base 6 still have a GPS…
