While it's hard to find this new for much less second hand prices are 200 quid less. To each their own of course.
Why do they have to sell this with the orange strap? to change the strap to a genuine Garmin quick fit strap of an alternative colour is about £80 plus or nearly £200 if you want the titanium one (Yes cheaper fakes are available on a well known website - but would you risk it?). It's a decent watch but with the orange strap it wouldn't really go well with a smart suit or something so IMO not really wearable 24/7. I would actually wait until the Fenix 6 Pro Solar starts to drop, which it will soon, technology in this area is moving so fast.
I'm a big fan of Garmin watches and am beginning to like my Fenix 6 pro a lot more since I managed to find the right tightness of the strap to allow the built in HR monitor to work properly. However, this is not a good deal in my opinion.

There is no improved functionality over the regular 6 pro and, in my experience, the normal face is already pretty robust. And as for the combination of the titanium bezel with the hideous orange strap, that can't be worth much of a premium.

If you are really keen on this model and aren't in a rush then Garmin are doing them for £640 through TOTUM and other discounted affiliates like Vitality, whilst the regular 6 pro is £480.

Black third party ones are a fiver and if people are worried about comments, about a watch strap, from colleagues then the world is definitely more odd than I thought.

You'd be worried about a dodgy watchstrap if open water swimming and your £600 watch disappeared off your wrist. Straps from China may cost a fiver but are not reliable. And a bright orange rubber strap just doesn't look good in smart clothes.
Unbelievable bit of kit, but can’t justify the cost to go from the Fenix 5 to this. Will wait for them to drop a good deal more

The £80 / £200 pound ones are probably just as secure as the £5 ones. I have a third party strap on my Garmin (cheaper model - but that's irrelevant) and it seems no less secure than the one that came with the watch.

Everyone has their own opinions. I have had cheap ones that have failed, luckily on cheaper watches. And I would have thought if you're going to pay £600 plus for a sports watch you are going to give it some serious use in some seriously tough conditions, so I just wouldn't risk it.

But the garmin straps are just as susceptible to unclipping so a lanyard on your wrist or a screwed in strap is the way to go for busy tri swims.

A strap at any price can fail. Just ensure your home insurance covers it if you're that concerned. Would only cost a few pounds per year (possible already covered depending on the insurance you have).

Its a sports watch with smart features, this is for serious athletes not brand junkies that go for apple.
Saying that pretty much the same features can be found on the watches that are lower down the range and if you prefer something lighter the forerunner 945 offers pretty much the same in a lighter package and price.

Its still a nonsense price for a smart watch. It has the apple premium price attached without having the brand or associated fanboys to match it.

I supposed 'Seems' is good enough until it fails and you lose or damage your super expensive gadget
This is a sports watch not a smart watch. Doesn’t have the functionality and all-round features of an Apple Watch, but for pure activity tracking it can’t be beat, and the battery is much better than a smart watch.

That is the key point. The tinanium bezel and sapphire face might be nice to have but aren't necessary and add nothing to the functionality of this watch. Much better, in my view, to buy the regular 6 pro for around £200 less.

I wouldn't get the 5s plus which has a notoriously short battery life. Go for the 5 plus unless you have a very narrow wrist. Also, the lead time on the 5s plus is very long at the moment if ordering direct from Garmin.

I have owned quite a few Garmin watches over the years and I have to be honest and say that, although I like my Fenix 6 pro, it hasn't really been worth the extra money to me yet. For example, I haven't used the payment or music features at all and only used the mapping three or four times.

For me, my best Garmin in terms of bang for buck has been the Forerunner 45 which I picked up as a grade A refurb for just £90. It was on here new from Amazon for £118 last month. For most people it really is all you need. It is cheap, light and works incredibly well. My Forerunner 235 was also very good before it died so if you need a bit more functionality and can get a good deal then go for the 245.

If you add cycling and swimming into the mix, probably better or go for a Fenix no?

The forerunner 45 copes fine with cycling but if you need pool swimming too then the forerunner 245 handles that fine. If you need a triathlon capability then you will need to go up the range a bit further.
