The Garmin MARQ Explorer I returned to get the Titanium Fenix 6.

So, I now have two Garmin Fenix 6 Pro Sapphires — latest in Titanium and the other in Black DLC. Yes, I like the Fenix 6. SMILE.

I like the Fenix 6 so much that I returned a Garmin MARQ Explorer to get the Titanium one!

Here is the ironney (and possible even sadness). The TWO Fenix 6s together, even with one being Titanium, costs less than the MARQ Explorer. That is sobering. But, having worn two I liked the Fenix 6 better. I am not new to Fenix. I have owned a Fenix 5 and a Fenix 5 Plus.

The Fenix 6 display is head and shoulders better than that on the MARQ. The display is noticeably blacker (like with AMOLED) and brighter. Once you get used to the Fenix 6 display the MARQ looks washed out and pale! The software also is more reliable.

The Fenix 6 Titanium is JUST the bezel and maybe the back. The body is plastic. That is disappointing. The MARQ Explorer was all Titanium and, as the image above shows, had more presence. But, that is ‘OK’, I wasted too many hours getting the MARQ to go back to my watch face and do what it was supposed to do.

With the new maps released earlier this week there was a lot of software that had to be downloaded to my Fenix 6. Garmin Express had some issues. I had to do it twice — on two separate PCs, but in the end I got it all loaded and squared away. Good job I had a bit of experience with Garmin. SMILE.

Talking of which I do maintain an Excel Spreadsheet of all the smartwatches that pass through my hands given that I go through a fair number a year. This is today’s cut.

Yes, I got the Fenix 6 Sapphire — as I have my last 6 Garmins — from ‘Heart Rate Monitors USA‘ (HRM USA). I do not deal with anyone else.

The opening ceremony. Doesn’t show much, alas, of the field per se.

Wanted to share this with you. Of course, this the mother ‘Minster‘ for the U.K., does something memorable each Remembrance DayPoppy Day — i.e., November 11.

As I Have Repeatedly Said This Tariff ‘War’ With China Was BOGUS From Start — Just A Donald Trump ‘Wet’ Farce.

by Anura Guruge

All I can say is:

Yet again (maybe for the 3rd time).

{look it up. It will do you good.}

Just type ‘tariffs’ into this blog’s search ‘trench’.

Today’s BIG headline — from CNBC.
Google for more. Plenty of coverage.

I have from the start CLAIMED very publicly, on this blog that these are empty threats.

Push comes to shove, Donald Trump will back down. He has done so consistently.

It is embarrassing. It is a farce. When will people come to see it — like I do. Do not get excited. It will never happen. SMILE.
