The Garmin Fenix 6x Pro GPS Watch is a top of the line piece of gear. Now more than ever hunters are pushing themselves to be in the best shape possible so they can hunt longer and harder. The Garmin Fenix 6X Pro offers endless features that will help you to do just that. The heart rate monitor allows you to track the intensity of your fitness activities and to calculate your stress levels throughout the workday. Unlike some other watches, the wrist-based heart rate monitor in this watch works underwater, so if swimming is how you like to stay in shape then this watch will work for you as well. The Pulse Ox sensor also helps you monitor your health as it uses light beams to measure how well your body is absorbing oxygen.
This watch is also perfect for the trail. It meets the U.S. military standards for thermal, shock, and water resistance, so you know you can rely on it in the harshest conditions. The Fenix 6X Plus has topographical maps making it a very practical companion for trail runs and even for days spent in the field. It connects to a number of different satellite systems (GPS, GLONASS, and Galileo) to ensure that you can utilize its tracking features in the most remote locations. This device also includes an altimeter so you can keep an eye on your elevation at any given moment. The built-in barometer monitors weather while a three-axis electronic compass guarantees you are headed in the right direction. While a device such as the Garmin inReach is recommended for trips into the backcountry, this watch will automatically detect if you have fallen or had some other medical emergency. Upon detection of the incident, the watch starts a 30-second timer. If you do not turn off the timer it will send emergency messages with your location to anyone you have marked down as an emergency contact.
Not only is this watch perfect for those looking to take their fitness to the next level, but it is also a highly functional smartwatch. You can receive emails and texts on your watch when it is paired with a compatible device. The Fenix 6x Pro also features the Garmin Pay service allowing you to pay at participating providers without having to pull anything out of your pockets. The watch also stores up to 2,000 songs and or allows you to access streaming apps such as Spotify and Amazon Music. If you have this watch you can leave your phone at home and go out for a trial run, listen to music through Bluetooth headphones (not included), and still be reachable in case of a family emergency. All around this is a great piece of gear for any hunter looking for a multipurpose smartwatch.
