Garmin Fenix 6 Pro review: A great smartwatch further tweaked, but it might be a bit too heavy for some
The Garmin Fenix 6 Pro builds on the features of the Fenix 5 Plus. Here's our full reviewLet me start with a disclaimer: there is no way you can test all the functionality in a multi-sport smartwatch like the Garmin Fenix 6 Pro in span of 2-3 weeks. It caters for a variety of activities and some features take months to test – for example the Garmin Coach, a feature not exclusive with the Garmin F6 Pro, but available on it.

Garmin Fenix 5
- Great for the outdoors
- Long battery life
The Fenix is the top tier of Garmin devices, offering accurate tracking in all conditions. It's designed to be a little tougher and last a little longer than the top Forerunner devices. The Fenix 5 is a little older, but that's why there's usually good deals to be had on it.
- Slim and stylish design
- Sleep tracking
- Great for tweens
The Fitbit Inspire replaced the Alta and offers step and activity tracking in a fitness band. This entry-level model lacks some the heart rate tracking that you get on the model up, but it's great for tracking daily activity while also giving you smartphone notifications. It will also offer sleep tracking, so it's great for younger users.
Garmin Forerunner 35
- Accurate fitness tracking
- Strong battery life
- Reliable heart rate sensor
If you're looking for an entry into the world of running watches then the Garmin Forerunner 35 is a watch that tunes itself brilliantly to the rigours and requirements of a dedicated running watch. It's a little older, but still a reliable option for those who want to track their running with GPS and heart rate.
Garmin Vivoactive 3
- Accurate activity tracking
- Lifestyle focused
With a slightly slicker design that some of the Forerunner models, the Vivoactive is aimed at lifestyle users rather than hardcore athletes. That means it has a touchscreen interface, but it still uses the same core tracking skills and sensors. That means it's just as accurate as many of the top Garmin devices, but slightly more approachable.

Fitbit Versa 3 review: more features, better design and longer battery life in one attractive package .
In this Fitbit Versa 3 review, we explore all the best (and worst) features of Fitbit's latest gen fitness smartwatchThe Fitbit Versa 3 represents transition, both in a sense that it moved on from being the flagship Fitbit model – that title goes to the Fitbit Sense now – and also the fact that Google is buying Fitbit, which will probably have a profound impact on future Fitbit models. Both of these influences already have a very noticeable impact on the Fitbit Versa 3. For better or worse.
