After about a year of use, it began dropping out during a ride. Garmin replaced the strap and suggested a few changes:
(1) Even though instructions said the strap could go in the washing machine, the spin cycle might fold it and break the wires. Now I just remove the module and soak the strap in the sink while I shower after a session, adding a few drops of dish detergent once a week.
(2) Buh Bump electrolyte cream on the electrode patches before each session.
(3) Leaving the module off the strap until the next session may increase battery life.
Electrode patches may be bubbling slightly after a year on the replacement strap. So far it has worked perfectly, but I got a new strap just in case. I do 5-6 sessions a week, fairly heavy use.
I bought this light to use on gravel trails with no street lights and road with lights. Ravemen PR1600 does great job. I love the remote to switch back and forth between two modes. especially with a remote. It is not the brightest but I believe it is a good compromise to not blind the oncoming traffic or fellow cyclists. When you ride with drop bar and change to trail mode, a beam pattern is such that it shows the shadow of your handlebar on the side. But this doesn't really effect your riding. The fact you can charge my phone is a plus just in case. The battery life is as stated.
I was looking to upgrade from a Garmin 920XT, and after doing my research, I determined that the Fenix 6 fit my needs as an athlete. I am please with the ease of use and the features the watch offers. I like the color of the band (orange) and the overall look of the Sapphire version. While the battery life is sufficient, I like to using all the features on the watch, and that reduces the time between charges significantly. I am still finding my sweet spot when comes to features I want to use all the part/al/none of the time. Overall, I am very happy with the watch.
needed a new bike headlight and wanted to get one that is compatible with my garmin edge 530. like the fact that it sits under the bike computer and off the handlebar. also, like on the sides it shows the illumination so you are not leaning over the handlbars to see what light mode you are in. it does work automatically and nice it shuts off automaticallty when you put the computer in rest mode. especially like the flashing mode while riding in the daytime. the battery deplete after about two hours.
