Garmin Fenix 6 Sapphire $649 Delivered ($552.50 in-Store with Ultimate Him Gift Card from Woolworths) @ Rebel Sport

620

Just picked this up today - got 6 $100 gift cards and 1 $50 gift card from the woolies deal below:

15% off Ultimate Him Gift Card @ Woolworths

I went to the self-service and bought all in one go, came out to $552.50, then went to Rebel about 2 hours later and picked up the Garmin Fenix 6 Sapphire. You can buy a Rebel reusable yellow bag for $1 to use up the whole $650 amount in one go.

Hope this helps, credits to OP for the woolies post. Unfortunately you can't use these gift cards online so you'll have to pick it up at a Rebel store that has stock, of which you can check online. Also I called to check and there doesn't seem to be any issues using 7 gift cards, will just have to put it in one at a time. (Apparently someone had bought a treadmill before and used 20 gc's). Also I guess some people say that you can only buy 5 GC's from woolies at a time, but I was able to scan all in one go - YMMV.

    Nice work.
    You could also try and get them to match Amazon's price of $584 to bring it down even lower.

    Must resist….Fenix 7 coming sometime between now and 2023….

      Yeah but I hear the fenix 8 is just around the corner after that…. What to do what to do.

        Wait. Always wait. Until one day you die 😂

        •  

          and then fenix 11, because 9 will be unlucky and everyone skips 10..

          bring on Fenix 11!

    how active are you guys? this has barometers and altitude things and timers. I thought most people just use their watch to get phone notofications and track heart rate/steps??

    •  

      Tracks all sorts of physical activities from surfing to hiking to yoga. Has training plans to get you ready for events too. Battery lasts for ages, far longer than smartwatch equivalents

        i havent done either of those 3 things. I must be pretty lazy :(

          Never too late to get started if you're interested, and you certainly don't need one of these watches to do them.

      I'm currently training for a half-marathon so this helps. In saying that this watch is the almost unbreakable version as well, so I fully expect it to look and work the same 5 years from now.. maybe with slightly less battery life, which will probably be 7 days instead of 14. If you like data it might help you do things like starting with a walk and seeing your progress! (but yes I don't think that the watch comes before the personal interest in fitness.. but it does help push!)

      •  

        do you find Garmin training plan useful? target ? 120 mins?

        • +1 vote

          I did a training plan with Coach Greg for a halfa (14 weeks, 4 days a week). It’s super good for getting into a long distance event. Even made the goal time set at the start.

          My father in law was gifted my FR945 from me and he also made his goal time with coach Greg after a 16 week training plan.

          Long story short, the plans are great for getting into running!

          Seasoned runners won’t really benefit from the training plans as the plans are designed to build you from a low base.

        FWIW I have this (but titanium) and the battery lasts me marginally over a week. Love the watch though. Run 5 days a week and wear it permanently except when charging.

        Was hoping I would get more out of the battery, but oh well - still better than most other smart watches.

        Good luck on your half mara!

        •  

          Just create a customer power plan.

          My watch used to last 7 days with everything turned on and 90 mins exercise everyday. tweaked the settings and it now lasts 10-12 days.

        •  

          How do you find the weight? I'm looking to replace a broken 645M and am chasing a watch with longer battery time to last for ultramarathons (16hr+ runs) but I'm concerned about the weight. The 645M is only 42g so it's going to be twice the weight.

          •  

            @Fraggler: I had a pretty heavy steel-banded automatic watch before. While this is bulkier it is pretty much the same weight and it doesn't bother me at all

    •  

      I was looking into one for the ski map feature, dont need many of the other features but its definitely interesting.

      This is what I use it for:

    That's some hard core Oz bargaining right there.

    This read like one of those scam baiter videos

    "Sir, do you have the gift cards"
    "Yes, I got six of them"
    "OK sir very good, sir what I need you to do now is…"
    "…y'know, I think I'll buy this $649 watch."

      No, DO NOT REDEEM!

  •  

    Pretty impressive tech in these, went surfing recently with a mate who wore this and was pretty amazing seeing the data and detailed map tracking. It is massive though - much bulkier than my 44mm apple watch, worth trying one on to see how it fits

      Perhaps your friend had the 6X which is much larger than this one. I have the Fenix 6 Sapphire and it's about the same size as my Samsung Galaxy Watch LTE.

    •  

      I have very skinny wrists and the mid-sized variant looks fine (to me at least). The 6X would look ridiculous though. One thing that annoys me a bit though is I can't keep most long sleeves buttoned over the watch.

      I have also heard people say it is too heavy. Personally I had a heavy automatic watch before this and the weight hasn't bothered me in the slightest

      •  

        FWIW the 6s is smaller than the pro and sapphire versions. I have small wrists and I just bought that one, it looks fine. It was on sale at Rebel but isn't any longer. It seems to be going on sale frequently though, might be worth waiting

        • +1 vote

          6s is the size.

          Pro, sapphire, titanium is the spec.

          6s has normal, pro and sapphire.

          Sizing is 6s, 6 and 6x from smallest to largest.

    Patiently waiting for a decent sale price on the Fenix 6X Saphire…

      Hang in there. I waited 3 or 4 months for the 6 Sapphire deal on Amazon and jumped on it at $584

      •  

        I wasn't aware of that deal until after it had finished…

    Is this overkill for a bloke that aims for 10k steps, receive notifications, tracks heart rates/sleep/oxygen blood monitoring?

      For what you need a Fitbit would do the same job at a fraction if the price. In saying that IMO a Fitbit doesn’t look as good on the wrist compared to a fenix 6, especially if you swap out the band for a nice metal one.

      I don't think so. If anything, wearing a Garmin watch encourages you to do more exercise. I so a lot of walking and cycling and it integrates really well with Strava so you can track your progress and challenge yourself. I don't think I've ever go back to Android wear or traditional smartwatches

    •  

      You can probably do with a Xiaomi mi band 6 for $60.

    Phoenix 6 does not have in watch music right ? is the 6 pro that does

    •  

      Sapphire is Pro plus a sapphire screen - so this model has music, just used it last night.

      edit - oh but yes a 'plain' Fenix 6 has no music in it.

      •  

        Yes, i just got this one with the vouchers from Rebel and is the Sapphire that as you said is the pro version plus the sapphire screen and it has the in watch music support

        •  

          Awesome, hope you enjoy! Please consider upvoting the deal so that it makes more people aware, thanks!

    This watch is currently $629 as a prime exclusive deal on Amazon

      Bought one last night. Thanks.
