Or both!Just got a Fenix 6, so far it's excellent. But then there are things you will miss. Works both ways. Buy the one that is right for you.
The one thing that I miss from my AW4, apart from the Garmin, is the data on a single, web page, where I can see everything all together, rather than go through 3 or 4 separate apps on my phone. It's easier to see the relationship say of a poor nights sleep on the heart rate of an activity. That I truly miss, and will always hold Garmin above the AW simply for that fact. The data that each generate are very similar, but what is DONE with that data can be worlds apart.Or both!
Man, it's frustrating. Garmin, give me just a little bit more flexibility like Apple does with its apps. And, please, something, anything like Overcast, instead of pushing that crap Spotify app onto my watch.
Apple, give me better data, without having to third party it, and another day of battery life.
It's like they have a non-compete on certain things.
I’ve always wondered how Garman gets away with that. The press shots and marketing materials give a very different impression from reality.Don’t do it. I won one for a company contest and the display is so bad on that thing it’s laughable. The press shots are a joke to what it actually looks like.
I use RunGap regularly to upload my Apple Watch workouts to Garmin and Strava. What are your questions?I haven’t exactly been able to figure out RunGap yet. Info on that would be appreciated
Just the basics. I have run gap downloaded on my phone and ipad. My questions would be very basic and could probably be answered with little research. Definitely don’t want to waste your time. Definitely appreciate it thoughNope. I’ve had several Garmin watches over the years. Learned to give any new model at least four months on the street for Garmin to fix software.
At this point in time, the things that Garmin is stronger than Apple in are not a priority for me.

Feel free to message me if you get stuck. I’m no expert but happy to try to help if I can.Just the basics. I have run gap downloaded on my phone and ipad.

Rungap is great for sync'ing activities, but it doesn't sync sleep data, heart rate data (all day) steps, or anything outside of the activity, and it doesn't sync, (or Apple Watch doesn't generate) all of the data. The pace data, speed data, and cadence data from the AW is simply unusable.You can always use RunGap to sync between everything. Best of both worlds then!
I think there is one called Fjuul which used Firstbeat analytics but it is subscription based which I don't like. I would prefer a one off cost. It would be great if Apple got into this field especially with their industry leading optical HR sensor.I generally bounce back between my AW and my Garmin, though I've been wearing mostly my Garmin 24/7 these days while I prepare for my 4th (and final) marathon of the year. I've been paying attention to the recovery and performance metrics more than I have in the past just to see what they recommend for this final training push.
I've tried to find comparable Firstbeat-type apps for the AW but have come up empty.
The solar ONLY comes in the 5X size, though might be thinner, and has shorter lug distance and more comfortable case back.My 5x still works pretty well for what I do. Was interested in the solar aspect of the newer Garmin but didn’t really look into it very much.
This mornings trail run..
Is there a solar version that’s the same case size as the 5x or smaller?
