The Fenix Pro has pretty much all you could want from a multipurpose tool watch, it is certainly a jack-of-all-trades model and offers a vast selection of functions to master all environments, however, if the call to adventure is deafening, then the Marq Adventurer is unrivalled for its focus on individuals and their needs and also offers double the battery life of the Fenix Pro 6. There is, of course, more personalisation involved in the design of the Fenix Pro 6, and it also comes in at £1000 cheaper than the Marq Adventurer. 

 

Both watch models go above and beyond for their functionality and multipurpose use. Any buyer who wants a smartwatch that does what it says on the tin, and more, will happily don either watch. Much of your choice will come down to budget and lifestyle, as either option will tailor most of any wearers needs.
