Barcelona, 2022. – The wait has been worth it. Garmin introduces the fēnix 7 series of smartwatches, the next generation of the iconic line of solar-powered multisport GPS devices, designed with the best features to help athletes and adventurers perform at their best. Among its novelties, the new touch screen combined with an interface with 5 buttons integrated into a resistant casing stands out. It also incorporates innovative training functions, as well as multi-band positioning and multi-zone topographic maps. Not forgetting the advanced solar charging technology that allows for longer battery life sAo users can enjoy their passion for longer.
“Since the introduction of fēnix 10 years ago, at Garmin we have been committed to helping athletes and adventurers pursue their challenges, and we remain steadfast in our mission to equip them with innovative tools that help them do so,” said Salvador Alcover, Garmin CEO. Iberia. “The fēnix 7 series brings cutting-edge multisport training capabilities to the wrist. The new touchscreen and updated design, advanced performance metrics, and health, wellness, and connectivity features make fēnix 7 the most complete lineup for athletes to perform at their best,” he adds.
Designed for adventure
The series is available in three sizes and different premium materials, such as titanium and sapphire. To withstand the most demanding adventure conditions and to obtain greater durability, the watch has been redesigned incorporating reinforced lugs and a metal protection for the start button. As a novelty, the 5 button-shaped controls are joined by a new highly responsive touch screen. In this way, the user will have a dual utility interface, thus facilitating quick and intuitive interaction and navigation through the maps, or they can deactivate the touch screen if they prefer to use only the buttons.
Solar charging technology, pioneered by Garmin watches, is also present in fēnix 7 which, thanks to its design, maximizes the solar surface for greater efficiency, doubling the solar gains of fēnix 6 in smartwatch mode. For fēnix 7X models, solar power can last even longer between charges with a battery life of up to 5 weeks in smartwatch mode1 and up to 5 days in GPS mode2. Furthermore, with the introduction of the Power SapphireTM (solar sapphire) models, wearers will no longer have to choose between a solar-charged watch or one with a sapphire lens, as these models have both features.
Light in the darkness
While solar charging helps make the most of daylight hours, fēnix 7X’s new hands-free, quick-access integrated multi-LED flashlight makes it possible to take advantage of low-light and dark hours. An adjustable white or red light will illuminate the path for increased visibility and terrain awareness. Thanks to it, adventurers can set up camp after a long day of hiking or exercise in the late afternoon. With race mode activated, the light will adapt to the runner’s cadence, alternating between white and red with each movement of the arm. The white light will illuminate forward to see the track and the red light will illuminate backwards so the runner can see and be seen as he takes each stride with the utmost confidence.
First level training
The new fēnix 7 generation continues to bet on multiple sports applications ranging from bouldering (block climbing) to mountaineering, through strength training and many other profiles. It also incorporates a series of tools to achieve optimal performance and go to the next level:
Stamina – This tool allows athletes to control and track exertion levels during a running or cycling activity, thus keeping exhaustion at bay.
Visual Race Predictor: This feature takes into account the user’s running history and general fitness to provide race estimates and insights on how their training is progressing.
Recovery Time Advisor: Once physical activity is complete, this feature takes into account training intensity and other factors such as stress, daily activity, and sleep to estimate the number of hours of rest needed to recover before another training session of the same nature.
Daily Training Suggestions – This feature provides recommendations for the next running or cycling training session, based on your current training load, training status, and overall fitness level.
In order not to lose the north
Staying true to the brand’s philosophy, the range of watches is equipped with the full suite of Garmin navigation features, being compatible with all major satellite systems along with the additional L5 frequency range to improve accuracy in harsh GPS environments. All models in the series come with preloaded SkiView and 42,000 golf course maps. Standard Solar copies allow TopoActive maps to be downloaded from any region of the world. For its part, the Sapphire Solar models have preloaded TopoActive maps of their region and also allow downloading of any territory in the world.
To optimize time on race day, fēnix 7 has a new Next Stops feature that provides the exact location of aid stations, trails, next turns, and more. At user-defined upcoming stops, a data page displays performance metrics including upcoming distance and elevation, with a summary of the last leg and an optional rest timer. All this to help athletes manage their time during the competition.
Wellness and connectivity 24/7
