Garmin Fenix 6 series leaks ahead of IFA 2019 announcement
The folks over at Winfuture.de have the scoop on Garmin's new Fenix 6 lineup, which will probably be revealed in less than two weeks. All five Fenix smartwatches are packed with tracking technology, built-in GPS, Pulse Ox sensors that measure the oxygen content in the blood, as well as heart rate monitor.
The basic Garmin Fenix 6 and Fenix 6S will sell in Europe for €600. The former sports a 1.3-inch display with 260x260 pixels resolution and Corning Gorilla Glass 3 coating, while the latter has a slightly smaller 1.2-inch display with 240x240 pixels resolution.
They only pack 64MB internal storage, so using them for music playback is out of the question, unless you listen to the music from a streaming service or your phone. Both smartwatches support Bluetooth, NFC (Near Field Communication) and promise to offer up to 14 and 9 days, respectively, of average use.
Garmin Fenix 6 Pro and Fenix 6S Pro come with similar panels – 1.3-inch and 1.2-inch, respectively. They are water-resistant, but instead of just 64MB internal memory like the other two above, they pack 32GB storage. Both are expected to be available on the market for €600.
On the inside, the smartwatch will pack 32GB storage, NFC and Bluetooth support, and a battery that should offer up to 21 days of usage without having to recharge. Such a long battery life is possible because the smartwatch comes with a regular display (not touchscreen). Also, it runs Garmin's software, which allows users to take advantage of various power-saving options.
