That is INSANE. $129 for a FitBit ‘Versa 2’ which was $199 a week ago. A 35% markdown on what is still a new watch and the TOP of Fitbit’s line.

Get IT. Get it. If you are in the market for a smartwatch get this. You will NOT regret it.

I am a Garmin man BUT my wife has been wearing a Versa 2 for 2-months+ and loves it — and she used to wear a Garmin too.

If you are in the U.S., just go to HRM USA. Only place to get Garmin, Fitbit or Polar. 45-day returns, UPGRADE plans and AMAZING service & support.

My Two Garmin Fenix 6 Sapphires Side-By-Side — The New Titanium On Left, The Other The Older Black.

Anura Guruge Garmin Fenix 6 Sapphire Titanium Black DLC



The Garmin MARQ Explorer I returned to get the Titanium Fenix 6.

Garmin Fenix 6 Sapphire MARQ Explorer Anura Guruge


So, I now have two Garmin Fenix 6 Pro Sapphires — latest in Titanium and the other in Black DLC. Yes, I like the Fenix 6. SMILE.

I like the Fenix 6 so much that I returned a Garmin MARQ Explorer to get the Titanium one!

Here is the ironney (and possible even sadness). The TWO Fenix 6s together, even with one being Titanium, costs less than the MARQ Explorer. That is sobering. But, having worn two I liked the Fenix 6 better. I am not new to Fenix. I have owned a Fenix 5 and a Fenix 5 Plus.

The Fenix 6 display is head and shoulders better than that on the MARQ. The display is noticeably blacker (like with AMOLED) and brighter. Once you get used to the Fenix 6 display the MARQ looks washed out and pale! The software also is more reliable.

The Fenix 6 Titanium is JUST the bezel and maybe the back. The body is plastic. That is disappointing. The MARQ Explorer was all Titanium and, as the image above shows, had more presence. But, that is ‘OK’, I wasted too many hours getting the MARQ to go back to my watch face and do what it was supposed to do.

With the new maps released earlier this week there was a lot of software that had to be downloaded to my Fenix 6. Garmin Express had some issues. I had to do it twice — on two separate PCs, but in the end I got it all loaded and squared away. Good job I had a bit of experience with Garmin. SMILE.

Talking of which I do maintain an Excel Spreadsheet of all the smartwatches that pass through my hands given that I go through a fair number a year. This is today’s cut.

The Fitbit ‘Versa 2’ Gets The Ultimate Accolate — My Wife Loves It!

by Anura Guruge


Click images to ENLARGE.




To appreciate the truly monumental magnitude of this endorsement by my wife, you have to understand 5 germane facts:

  1. My wife is not new to fitness trackers or Fitbit; she actually was a very early adopter of Fitbit and had their original clip-on tracker 10-years ago.
    ….
  2. My wife has, and usually wears, a Garmin Vivosport with GPS and has owned a Fitbit Alta HR & Flex 2.
    ….
  3. My wife, earlier this year, wore both a Fitbit ‘Versa Lite‘ and a ‘Inspire HR‘ and was not overly impressed.
    ….
  4. My wife is very fussy about what she will wear on her wrist (and it takes a lot of convincing on my part to get her to try these watches that I get for evaluation).
    ….
  5. My wife is the dream demographics for this Fitbit.
    ….

I was blown away. She likes her Garmin and could not wait to take the ‘Versa Lite’ and the ‘Inspire HR’ off a wrist. The Versa 2 she loves. And the reason is fairly simple. The BRIGHT, BIG AMOLED display. AMOLED displays, when properly implemented are addictive. They look so bright, crisp, vivid and appealing. So, it is basically the display, and display alone! Everything else she pretty much got with her Garmin — which has GPS to boot. But, she never uses the GPS.

This is good news for Fitbit. My wife is THE target market for this Apple Watch ‘killer’. If my wife loves it, so will legions of other females. And that, as far as Fitbit is concerned, should be all that matters.


Yes, of course, I got it from ‘Heart Rate Monitors USA‘, (HRM USA). Who else? I get ALL my smartwatches from them — no exceptions.

I Start Wearing My Garmin ‘Fenix 6 Sapphire’ Putting My ‘MARQ Explorer’ Away.

Yes, the Fenix 6 Sapphire and the MARQ Expedition are very similar but there are subtle differences.

The screen is fractionally bigger, BRIGHTER and the whole watch, when going through widgets, menu etc. is faster (i.e., snappier). Also the 4-data field option with activities that I couldn’t get to work with my MARQ.

I am NOT getting rid of my MARQ. SMILE. I am keeping it.

After 40-years in the computer business I am into redundant hardware. I have two (or more) of most things. I have three backup generators! Well, I didn’t have a backup Garmin. SMILE.

This was my third Fenix (having had both a 5 & a 5 Plus). If you count the MARQ Expedition it was my 4th of this ‘family’ — not counting my two Vivoactive 3s. So, I am not exactly new to these watches. That said, setting up the Fenix 6 required some effort. Part of that was the exact customization I sought. Not fully done yet. I need my widget loop just right. Right now some of the widgets and APPs are not available.

Garmin Express is also trying to install a ‘Golf Club’ file — and that file is not compatible with the Fenix 6! So, that complicates all the software downloads. Yes, you can select that file and ask it to ignore it. That works.

I like it. I customized the supplied Fenix 6 watch face to show what I wanted. Top Image. Easy enough once I worked out how it works!

I am happy. I will keep you posted.

Garmin ‘Fenix 6 Sapphire’ & ‘MARQ Explorer’ Side-By-Side On My Wrist — Unboxing The New Fenix 6.

Garmin Fenix 6 Sapphire MARQ Explorer Anura Guruge


I hope you can tell which is which. The Fenix 6 still has the ‘stimulated topo map‘ sticker that is affixed to the face. The MARQ Explorer has the titanium body.

Look real carefully — and I mean real carefully — and you will see that the black ‘bezel’ around the edge on the Fenix 6 is fractionally smaller than on the MARQ. That I guess is why the Fenix 6 is said to have a 1.3″ display vs the 1.2″ display on MARQ and the Fenix 5 Series.

I took these as I was unboxing the Fenix 6. I hadn’t charged it as yet. I haven’t charged it as YET! Sorry. Crazy busy day. Didn’t want to rush it. I do have a MARQ on my wrist. I want to ENJOY the whole process. Yes, of course, I will keep you posted.

Thanks.
