Watch talks via Bluetooth to Garmin Connect app - but this application is very limited and not a lot can be done there.
To upload gpx or change maps (if you ever need to) you have to connect the watch to the computer and use basecamp software (free) . Basecamp is strange and it looks and feels like the development of it stopped at least two decades ago. Once you get going its fine - but figuring out how to start is challenging. Well, at least I found it challenging.
In a nutshell, I don't think there is a way to upload GPX without a computer (via USB)
You 100% can upload .gpx files to watch wirelessly and without pc by using IPhone.
1 - Download and .GPX file (I use walk highlands ones) to your iPhone
2 - open “files” and click and hold on correct file, select share and share to garmin connect
3 - save file (edit if needed)
4 - top right on garmin connect app while looking at course and click “share do device” and select your fenix 6.
5 - refresh and then when in activity select your course and enjoy
