Wow! Wow! Wow!
Supposedly to reduce stress on the medical system from alcohol-related issues — so that they have MORE capacity to fight COVID-19.
Seems pretty drastic & dramatic.
Appears they already had a ban earlier this year. I obviously did not hear of that.
Gather the ban was introduced without any lead time so folks cannot stockpile.
I am sure there were those that knew about it & made provisions to make a killing on the blackmarket. I know how South Africa, alas, works.
Just think if this happened here or in the U.K.
I would be screwed without my red wine. SMILE.
I Am RETURNING My ‘Garmin Fenix 6 Solar’, After Less Than A Day — UGLIEST, UGLIEST Watch I Ever Saw!

With my OTHER Titanium Fenix 6 (Left)
— which looks pretty classy.
Garmin Marketing of the Fenix 6 Solar.
In the box, USPS label printed … ready to ship Monday.
On I did NOT get it on a whim. I gave it a LOT of thought. My criteria were simple & defensible:
- I wanted Titanium. I decided last year I am going to standardize on Titanium.
- The Solar Titanium is ONLY available in two options: this white one & a black one with a METAL STRAP.
- I hate metal straps. I didn’t want to get a watch, priced $150 more, with a $230 band that I did NOT want (though that is what is now going to happen).
- Garmin featured the white model — as you can see above — so I assumed it would be decent, in person (& it wasn’t).
As soon as I opened the box I knew I was in trouble! It looked TACKY & terrible. Butt ugly.
I hoped it would grow on I.
It did NOT.
If anything it got worse. It physically repulsed me! It made me ‘sick’ to just look at it. NOT WORTH IT.
It had to go.
Not sure what Garmin is thinking.
This white watch looks like a $5 BLING watch!
It is really tacky.
Yes, my plan is to get the BLACK Titanium. I will keep you posted.
