New Garmin Fenix 6 leak confirms much of what we know

A fresh round of leaks about the Garmin Fenix 6 has landed in the past day.

There has been nothing particularly groundbreaking reveals, but the images are better quality and it helps build up confidence with the previous information we already know.

Appelmoessite has revealed the full product lineup plus a couple of images, the writer claimes to have 200 photos which will be launched soon.

The 6X, 6 and 6S

Even though it was a given that the new Fenix 6 would have its heart rate sensor upgraded to the new ELEVATE optical HR sensor that is found on the Forerunner 945, the above images appear to confirm this.

The product categories include:

  • Fenix 6S Sapphire – Alt/Baro
  • Fenix 6S – Gorilla Glass
  • Fenix 6S Pro – Gorilla Glass
  • Fenix 6 Sapphire – GPS/Multi-GNSS
  • Fenix 6 Pro – Gorilla Glass
  • Fenix 6X Sapphire –  GPS/Multi-GNSS
  • Fenix 6X Pro – Gorilla Glass

Pricing:

  • Fenix 6S – $599-$899
  • Fenix 6 – $599-$999
  • Fenix 6X – $749-$1199

The pro is more expensive (+$100) compared to the “base” model and sapphire is more expensive compared to the Pro model (+$100)

A current theory is the standard model will lack a music player and Wi-Fi similar to how the Forerunner 645 has music and none music models. This would be both odd and disappointing considering both the Fenix 5 Plus series, and Forerunner 945 have Wi-Fi and music by default.

Amazon Listing Images and Features

The previous Amazon leak listing was a bit low quality, but some of the product gallery images are now available at a much higher quality, therefore making it a bit more believable.

On another site, fitness-tracker-test.info they claim to have some accurate information about the specs, but don’t confirm the exact source. Possibly the Amazon listing.

It has some interesting revelations, though I will take it with a pinch of salt.

For a start, the standard, none Pro models, will lack Wi-Fi and Music. This would be an odd decision considering the current Fenix 5 Plus has it by default. If the price is lower, I could get behind the decision.

There are also some pretty wild claims about battery life. With two new battery modes when not tracking exercise called economy and exposure, it is claimed that the watches can achieve 20+ days between charge.

With the 6X Sapphire Solar on economy mode, it is claimed that 120 days is possible, 80 days by default then up to 40 days additional from solar power. That’s 4 months. If this is true it will be very interesting to see how much functionality is cut out from the watch.
