MAKE HUGE STRIDES WITH A SMALLER WATCH
Styled for a trim, comfortable fit on smaller wrists, our 1.2” fēnix 6S is the multisport GPS watch for athletes and adventurers who want to do more, not wear more.
- Wrist-based heart rate1 and Pulse Ox2 sensors add insight to your fitness activities
- Measure running and cycling performance in ways you didn’t know were possible
- Navigate your world with multi-GNSS satellite reference and outdoor sensors
- Pair with your compatible smartphone for on-wrist messaging, alerts and notifications
- Use your watch as a virtual wallet with Garmin Pay™ contactless payments
- Don’t be limited by battery life. Go up to 9 days between charges in smartwatch mode
QUALITY BY DESIGN
For durability in any environment, fēnix 6S is tested to U.S. military standards for thermal, shock and water resistance.
Use preloaded activity profiles for trail running, swimming, running, biking, hiking, rowing, skiing, golfing and more.
BACKCOUNTRY SKI INPUT
This profile can distinguish between skiing and climbing, then shows metrics specific to ascent or descent.
View how various settings and sensors impact your watch’s battery life, so you can make battery-extending changes on the fly.
WRIST-BASED HEART RATE
The watch constantly samples your heart rate1 and will alert you if it stays too high or too low while you’re at rest. It also helps gauge how hard you work during activities. Even underwater.
BODY BATTERY™ ENERGY MONITOR
Optimise your body’s energy reserves, using heart rate variability, stress, sleep and other data to gauge when you’re ready to be active or when you may need to rest.
Staying hydrated is important for your well-being. Log your daily water intake to help you stay hydrated and see how consistent you are from day to day.
View advanced training metrics that include running dynamics1, heat- and altitude-adjusted VO2 max, recovery advisor and more.
Internal, rechargeable lithium battery provides up to 9 days of battery life in smartwatch mode, 25 hours in GPS mode and up to 34 days in battery saver mode.
Track period cycle details, log physical and emotional symptoms, and note regular, irregular or menopause transition cycles to better understand your body.
Use ClimbPro ascent planner on downloaded courses to see real-time information on your current and upcoming climbs, including gradient, distance and elevation gain.
Access multiple global navigation satellite systems (GPS, GLONASS and Galileo) to track in more challenging environments than GPS alone.
Navigate your next trail with ABC sensors, including an altimeter for elevation data, barometer to monitor weather and three-axis electronic compass.
PULSE OX SENSOR
For altitude acclimation or sleep monitoring, a Pulse Ox2 sensor uses light beams at your wrist to gauge how well your body is absorbing oxygen.
See how you’re breathing throughout the day, during sleep and during breathwork and yoga activities.
Trek far and wide between recharges. Expedition mode, an ultralow-powered GPS reference, lasts for weeks.
Receive emails, texts and alerts right on your watch when paired with a compatible device.
Breeze through checkout lines with Garmin Pay contactless payment solution through participating providers.
