I’ve been using a Garmin Fenix 6x for a couple of weeks and thought it might be interesting to put together a short review.
Is it really a smartwatch? I think it’s a misnomer to call the Fenix a “smartwatch”. I would call it a highly capable fitness tracker. That’s not a knock on the product; I really like it so far, but pretty much everything it does is centered around either fitness tracking or navigation.
The folks at Seeed Studio were kind enough to send me a Grove Beginner Kit for Arduino for review. That’s a mouthful of a name for a compact little kit!
The Grove Beginner Kit for Arduino (henceforth “the Kit”, because ain’t nobody got time to type that out more than a few times in a single article) is about 8.5 x 5 x 1 inches. Closed, you could fit two of them on a piece of 8.
I thought I’d give Fring a try after seeing some favorable reviews on other sites. If you haven’t previously heard of Fring, the following blurb from their website might be helpful:
