How can a fitness watch cost that much? Ridiculous

People spend even more for swiss made even though it is only capable of showing just the time. This one comes with GPS maps, plenty of sensors, smart notifications, 25 day battery life, solar power, etc.

1. It is a niche product.
2. It is tested to military standards. Not cheap.
3. The people who are the target demographic (extreme outdoor fitness addicts, aren't short of cash and are willing to spend it on fitness) for this watch are about as far removed from the average demographic of hotdeals UK member (couch or bed-ridden high bmi lard-arses who only move quickly when they try to smash the 'hot' button on a chocolate, crisps, biscuit, X box or Play Station deal).

The pounds spent on this watch will help keep the pounds off the waist, and what price can one put on the quality of life fitness provides one with? Lastly, there will always be value left in the watch when it's time to upgrade.
And also to bump up the price is the Sapphire glass which adds an element of scratch proof.

If you did a bit of research about the product and compare what they offer and materials used as compared to other fitness watches - you'll appreciate what it can and can't do.

*hugs my Garmin Fenix 6s Sapphire*
I own two Garmins & two HR straps. They have done more in terms of increasing my fitness, speed & performance than anything else. And I am married to a personal trainer from Nuffield Health with a sports coaching degree & over a decade of experience!

Garmin Edge X30 range. The latest/greatest cycling computer. I did a 100 mile event in the Peak District recently with 10,000ft of elevation. The main reason I finished it was due to ClimbPro. It categorises every climb with a colour coded gradient profile with metrics for how far you have left & also another screen of how many climbs are left. I picked it up for £210, bargain. My previous Edge 520 was also a bargain & used for many years (with another Garmin before that).

Forerunner 935 (I know it isn’t a Fenix but being a runner & occasional triathlete it makes more sense to own). Along with all the advanced metrics for training status/load, recovery time, cadence etc by far the best feature has been Garmin Coach. As far as I’m aware it’s the only adaptive training plan on a device in the world. And it’s brilliant & free. When most companies are charging their users a lot for SW on top of the HW *cough* Peleton *cough* it’s refreshing to get such advanced functionality included. And it isn’t limited to the top end, even the entry level watches are getting it.

It looks like the code is valid for several of the Fenix 6 that they have.
£700+ Seriously?

If only Garmin could get their act together in regards to releasing stable software.
After having a Fenix 3 and 5 there is not a chance I'd dream of spending this much on a Garmin watch.

RRP £850 so it's a decent deal. Let's be honest here - £10k Rolex on 15% discount is still a deal, even if you cannot justify spending that much others will.

Er, £290 will get you a seiko samurai auto that will tell you the time for unlimited number of days as long as you wear it.

And it will never date. It'll always be a classy watch when this is gathering dust in a drawer as yesterday's technology.

And that's just a decent Japanese.

I guess there's a market for every price range.

True, but this offers more and some people just like to have the options on hand.
I wouldn’t pay that much for a smart watch either. I also wouldn’t spend £150 on headphones or £500 for a lego set (hot deals i’ve seen on here recently). But some people will and if its cheaper than elsewhere then its a deal for anyone who has the wedge to spend

I am still using the F3 and the HR is quite accurate (I used to have the red HRM strap...Now I have both the Tri HRM and the Swim HRM straps)....Have not done a tri yet, but for running, swimming and skiing I have no complaints
I bought my Solar for the same price from First Class Watches with discount code. Pre-ordered on 29th November. Forecast delivery in January. Watch received last Thursday.

As for price, you're not just paying for the hardware, but on-going software development and the Garmin Connect service to store your data etc.. Not something you'll see included with many Rolex watches, certainly not mine.

Really? If you count Fitbit or apple as a serious fitness watch brand, you clearly aren’t much of an expert on what brands serious athletes and people who take their metrics seriously value.

No one in their right mind would do a triathlon/hike etc, using metrics from apple or Fitbit devices...these things even do golf metrics. My Garmin 3 has barely missed a beat. 4 years old and I wouldn’t be without it.

I bought the 6 Sapphire. Expensive? Yes. Worth every penny? Absolutely. For the exact reasons you just mentioned. Research why Garmin demand such a high price for these watches and you'll understand and appreciate them a LOT more. If it's just the standard functionality you need then go Forerunner, etc. It will do the same job.

These are much much better than Apple and Fitbit. Apple especially. Not to knock Apple too much as they are good at what they do, but the features on this far outweigh that on the Apple for sport. And battery life on the Apple is appalling. Apple is a superior smart watch for your apps and notifications, but thats about it
Collecting dust sometime next year.

Garmin high end stuff is decent. I bought a cycle GPS a long time ago when they were very expensive. Still works perfectly despite being out in every weather, surviving a car crash, etc.

For something that you have on your arm I can see it's money well spent if you're going to use it. Hot, although I'll stick with my Bip

You say 25 day battery life like it's a good thing that watches are now added to a long list of items that shouldn't need recharging but do. I hope we're on the verge of a big battery technology breakthrough that means end to all this.
Just to be clear, the solar version of this watch does not have sapphire glass, it has gorilla glass.

Mmm the share price of apple and garmin tells a different story...
I ordered the 6x pro sapphire, £100 less than the solar option. It's cool to have solar and all, but not worth the extra £100 imo
