Why buy the Garmin Fēnix 6?
The top-of-the-line Garmin Fēnix 6 Pro was rated the second best running watch you can buy (next to the Garmin Forerunner) but the Pro is just too much watch for any but the most serious runner.

View advanced training metrics that include estimated running dynamics, heat- and altitude-adjusted VO2 max and a smart recovery advisor. The watch also comes preloaded with 14 fitness apps for sports including swimming, cycling and running. With advanced GPS capabilities, gyroscope and ClimbPro, an app that can help you plan ascents and descents, it's perfect if you wnat to take on new challenges in the great outdoors.
