I got the 6x sapphire new recently for about this price. So far, it’s great. I like it more than my apple. Way more durable. This one is overpriced.
As a current 5X user, is this upgrade enough to justify or should I wait for the7 series to come down? I know 309 isnt an insane price for a Fenix, but ive only had the 5X for a couple years so i dont need to upgrade. The 7 series still fluctuates between 800-1000 on the mothership, so Im hoping that will drop significantly enough to scoop one up one day.
I’d wait for sure at this point. This tech is fairly mature. There will be small degrees of tweaking and increased accuracy in the elevate sensor platform and gps but are you an ultra marathon hiker that needs the absolute latest or a silicone valley dink with too much cash? Is a touch screen worth $800 on an older watch? Not for me but your equation would be different.
Get a chest strap for $45 and wait a few more years is my plan.
