Why We Like The Fenix 6X Sapphire Heart Rate Monitor
With a larger face display and scratch-resistant sapphire crystal lens, Garmin’s Fenix 6X Sapphire Heart Rate Monitor is designed to guide our active pursuits and withstand abuse on epic trail explorations. With that additional space, Garmin beefs up the battery life and data storage. The increased size is a worthy upgrade if we have larger wrists or would like a more effortless viewing ability during hard-training. And the 6X functions exceptionally well for daily life in town and transitions with eager confidence off-road and off-grid.
The Garmin Fenix line is well-known for stacking the table with features that reach far beyond telling time and providing an extension to our smartphone notifications. Garmin delivers a premium wearable with the 6X that collects critical exercise data, prompts us when it’s time to push harder, and provides detailed mapping and course planning well as the basics to keep us connected socially, and more.
It manages our activities and training and pushes us further when it’s time. The watch integrates with a broad range of sports like cycling, running, and swimming, and Garmin’s Body Battery Energy Monitor and sleep monitoring features look at accumulated stress and recovery to help guide us on the path towards peak fitness. In-activity features like PacePro help suggest pacing strategizes so we can hit that PR and not overcook yourself.
With more and more specs being added to the 6X, it’s easy to get lost in what it can do for us and our goals. Garmin designs the watch to keep us up to date and on track regardless of our activity or lifestyle. Smart connectivity keeps us informed about the weather, phone notifications, allows Garmin Pay, and even plays music with storage for up to 2,000 songs. And should we want to take a step further and venture off into the deeper countryside, the 6X even keeps tabs on our physical responses to altitude stress and detects incidents that can be sent as alerts to our loved ones and emergency contacts. It’s a watch that never has to leave our side unless it’s charging up for the next adventure.

Issues with heart rate tracking
- I've used it several times
- True to size
I've had some pretty significant issues with the optical heart rate monitor giving false low, or erratic readings while on training. For example, when doing a climb my heart rate was lower on the ascent than the descent. If you look over on the Garmin forums they seem to be having significant firmware issues that haven't been resolved for 8 months. Other than that very core feature the watch is pretty awesome! I'm bummed but will return.
