In early November, Garmin launched its Fenix 6 series of rugged smartwatches in India. The range is designed to help users track activities such as mountain biking, golfing, trail running, hiking, hunting, and diving. Garmin has offered a PacePro technology to provide a pace-strategy to runners.
The Garmin Fenix 6 smartwatches also have a Power Manager to deliver an efficient battery life. The range brings new Garmin smartwatch models, including the Garmin Fenix 6X Pro Solar that is the company’s first solar-powered watch.
