Casio GPR—B 1000 or Garmin f6 Pro Solar

Recommended Posts

I am thinking of a new watch. I want ABC and GPS but without all the fitness and social media crap. Solar charging is a must. The Casio GPR -B 1000 would seem perfect but does not have maps - just basic gps point to point tracking and track back so is somewhat dependent on the mobile app to upload routes or input cords.

Does anyone have a Casio GPR-B 1000 that they can share their thoughts on please.

The  other option would be a Garmin Fenix 6 Pro solar but this gives me more of what don’t want in order to have off-line maps. Not even sure with aging eyesight how useful the maps would be on a 1.4” screen as i just about cope with my old hand held Garmin e-maps gps.

Thoughts appreciated.

Contact One On Top Of Two on this forum, he has the Fenix 6 and seems to be impressed by it. He also has a ballistics app on it too. I'm sure he'll give you all the gen. 👍

seaMonkey, thanks for the info. The TruFlite  ballistic app is a big plus for the F6. After the lockdown is over I will be having a look at the f6 solar - see if my eyes can see the screen or not.

I know what you're saying, it's no fun when you've got to squint just to tell the time! Sheesh
