TL;DR: A selection of Garmin smartwatches including the new Fenix 6 are on sale at Best Buy as of June 3, with savings up to $150.
This summer is about to get real outdoorsy.
With social distancing rules relaxing but still in place, folks will likely become highly reliant on the outdoors to kick their cabin fever. A survey by CivicScience found that 15% of Americans plan to hike more than usual this summer, and 43% of Americans plan to spend more time outside due to coronavirus regulations.
An outdoor-ready sports watch that can go everywhere with you — everywhere as in underwater GLONASS tracking and settings specifically for trail running and hiking — would be a smart companion to have. The Garmin Fenix 6 series is that badass sports watch and multiple models are currently $150 off at Best Buy.
A selection of other more-budget friendly Garmin watches with heart rate sensors are also on sale, with the cheapest one going for $249.99.
The Fēnix line has sort of been the holy grail for hardcore multisport watches for a few years now, with every new generation adding new features. The Fēnix just knows what you’re doing and knows the granular tracking information to put forward to make your workout beneficial: It can decipher between treadmill and outdoor running, aerobic and anaerobic training zones, and a VO2 max estimation.
The 6 topped that with additions like PacePro to help you stay at the ideal pace throughout your run — all while adjusting in real-time for changes in elevation and uphill effort.
As with the 5, the Pro is great for music, maps, and WiFi, the Sapphire has a sapphire crystal glass display, and the Solar uses solar charging for up to six hours of extra battery life.
