Anyone here own a Garmin 6x Pro? Worth it? Have always worn mechanical watches, attempting to embrace the smart watch revolution. I enjoying running, biking, walking, once covid is over winning. Also considered the 945 too.

Are you talking about the Fenix line? I’ve switched over to wearing a Fenix 6 Pro full time during the pandemic (will likely go back to my mechanical options after going back to travel) It really depends on what you do on a regular basis. I do a lot of Aerobic Threshold training and have a remote coach that programs my training program to optimize for me across my different outdoor activities while taking into account when I have other things going on in my life. For that the tracking detail with a HRM has been invaluable, but I could do all of it manually without too much effort except the HR tracking The uploads work flawlessly which was a big step up from my old Suunto but again that’s HR training specific They’re much smaller and wear much better than older fitness watches, but they’re still boat anchors compared to a good mechanical watch or an Apple Watch My wife got one too when I got mine and I think objectively that’s been a waste as she doesn’t do much training compared to the shit I put myself through. If HR/detailed path tracking and GPS access in non cellular locations are important to you, they’re amazing. The integration with inReach rescue services makes me feel safer as well when I’m up on a glacier, but thats pretty specialized. Short of those use cases I’m not sure an Apple Watch wouldn’t do 90% as much for cheaper and have better usability in a smart watch specific scenario

I think much of the same would apply with the Forerunner 945, but never used one Also I think the Fenix does some cool stuff with Golf swings and other random activities I don’t do

I opted for the 6 Pro instead of the 6X due to size and at times even it feels big on the wrist. It was an upgrade to my previous Garmin Vivoactive. Mainly use it for cycling, swimming, and golf. I'll even wear it playing hockey to track heart rate using the cardio activity. I've kinda gone all in on Garmin for cycling; previously bought a GPS computer and speed/cadence sensors to track rides. Can now track the rides on the watch to also get respiration and HR and have it display the ride on the computer via extended display. The golf features are cool. I use it to supplement a laser range finder for distances and hole layout. The watch tracks shot distances and if you buy sensors that go in the end of each club, it will auto track distances to give you a better gauge on performance with each club. I bought new clubs this fall, so I've been having fun trying to use all these features to help me know what club I should be hitting.

The vaccines are wonderful, but we can still get it and pass it on.
