Today we’re getting our first look at the new Garmin Fenix 6 series of multi-sport GPS watches. The latest wearables to hit the market include the usual batch of fitness-tracking features, but also a particularly intriguing solar charging lens that will eliminate the need for recharging altogether. However, prices are still rather salty, and the crowd Garmin is likely targeting is one where fitness training is high-level and budgets aren’t tight. There’s a lot to like here, and given the lens of new Fitbits this week and potentially new Apple Watches next month, the Garmin Fenix 6 lineup provides notable specs in comparison to the competition.
