New battery performance management system combined with solar energy
Garmin’s unique battery performance management system is definitely the biggest highlight of the Fenix 6 series. It not only shuts down temporarily unwanted functions based on usage scenarios, including heart rate, blood oxygen, GPS, music, backlight, etc. With power-saving mode, it can be used for up to 64 days without charging. It does not use the tradition percentage way to display power level, instead, Fenix 6 uses the “remaining useable days” to indicate it.
Most notably, Garmin introduced solar charging technology to the Fenix 6X Pro Solar model for the first time. By using the new Power Glass solar charging lens on the screen panel, solar energy can be converted into electricity, the Fenix 6X can be extended for up to 26 days with 3 hours charging under the sunlight.

You can use the watch to view the snow road line and difficulty level, and you can see the downhill speed, time, distance, temperature, altitude, making it easier to grasp all kinds of information when going abroad for skiing.
For trail runners, Garmin also added the “Pace Pro” function to the Fenix 6. Through the built-in map and GPS data, Garmin integrates the key variants of the up and down slope to help runners formulate the best pace matching strategy. It also provides more informative route information in routes with large terrain changes.
