As Christmas came and went I had one mission

get myself a new Watch

My Garmin Fenix 3 had served me well ( almost 3 years) and it is still going strong, but 2020 is bringing with it some big challenges - my first 24 hour race and a multi-day event so I needed one that would last

So with the sales looming a looked around and narrowed it down to 3 of the ones below, Sunnto 9 Baro, Suunto Spartan and the Fenix 6 pro

more on what I chose coming up in a few months when I give it a proper review

Anyway I thought my comparison table might help you if your looking for a new Watch
