Fēnix 7: the latest generation of Garmin smartwatches

  • The popular multisport GPS watch series is reinvented with a new touch screen, advanced training features and a longer-lasting solar-charged battery
  • The fēnix 7X models incorporate a built-in multi-LED flashlight so that the adventurer can enjoy his passion even in the dark.
  • Users will continue to have access to topographic maps, smart connectivity and security features, and wellness measurement tools.

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

As a good adventure partner, fēnix 7 is designed to be enjoyed every day and in any environment. It has health and wellness tools like Pulse Ox, heart rate, breathing and stress monitoring, as well as measuring energy levels with Body Battery and age according to fitness with Fitness Age. As a novelty, the advanced sleep monitor3 stands out, offering an evaluation of sleep by scoring it from 0 to 100, taking into account how much time the user has spent in each sleep phase, information on activity, stress levels and bedtime.

Fēnix 7 allows smart notifications to be received directly on the wrist by pairing the smartwatch with a compatible smartphone. Thanks to its connectivity, the device has security and tracking functions providing peace of mind while training outdoors with automatic detection of incidents and falls and manually activated assistance alerts, which send a message with the user’s location in real time. to emergency contacts4.

The Durcal app launches a smart watch with integrated GPS for seniors with Alzheimer’s, children and adolescents

Madrid The family care app Durcal has launched its own  smart watch with integrated GPS  -mainly intended for elderly people with Alzheimer’s, children and adolescents-, which allows you to see in real time where the person wearing it is, and with a connected help button with the  Movistar Prosegur Alarmas receiving center , which the user can use in the event of an emergency situation.

Uneasiness, stress and fear are the main emotions felt when not knowing where a family member is. According to a recent study by Durcal,  86.8 percent of mothers and fathers become alert when they have not heard from their children for a long time . In this situation, for 98.5 percent of them it would be helpful to be able to know their exact location: 80.8 percent would relax and 17.8 percent would lower their level of unease.

Durcal’s new smart watch, aimed mainly at older people, with Alzheimer’s problems, children and adolescents, is part of the growing trend of using devices as a security element.

24-HOUR HELP BUTTON

The device has an integrated GPS that works both inside and outside the home -since it has an  integrated SIM- and a help button connected to the Movistar Prosegur Alarmas receiving center 24 hours a day. By pressing the button, the operator of the emergency center will contact you and you can respond from the same watch thanks to the  integrated microphone and speaker.

«We are very pleased to have a ‘partner’ like Prosegur at this stage. Having the endorsement of a company with its experience and prestige in the private security sector is a sign of trust in the Durcal watch”, says Guillem Viladomat, CEO of Durcal, who explains that the democratization of remote assistance and ease of use “These are the company’s objectives.”

Another of the main features of the watch is its  functional and minimalist design, closer to ‘smartwatches’ than to current telecare devices , which “are usually stigmatizing and segregating as they have a very medical appearance,” explains the company. In addition, the device has an integrated fall detection system and measures vital signs such as pulse and blood oxygen.

HOW TO GET IT STARTED

The watch, which can be purchased from the company’s website, does not require any type of installation. Being connected to the free Durcal ‘app’, the family member can see from their own mobile where the person who wears the device on their wrist is.

In the event of an emergency, the Movistar Prosegur Alarms head office will manage the incident and send the necessary personnel,  such as the police, ambulance or firefighters from the corresponding autonomous community.

“We want all families that need to care for a person to be able to do so ,” says Viladomat. “We don’t want any person to be left behind because they can’t access this type of device economically, usually at a high cost,” concludes the CEO of the app.

Garmin Forerunner® 945 LTE and 55: safety and motivation for all runners

Forerunner ® 945 LTE

The new version of the Forerunner ® 945 model stands out for integrating the new LTE 1 communication technology , which allows you to have all the security and monitoring functions in real time without the need to carry the phone with you, as well as music, Garmin Pay ™ contactless payments. and topographic maps, all on your wrist. In this sense, the watch allows users, whether training or competing, the possibility of asking for help when necessary and staying connected with their main contacts without the need to carry a mobile phone. Thus, if the user feels unsafe or the sports watch itself detects that an incident has occurred, the assistance and incident detection functions 2 they will send a message with your location to the previously chosen emergency contacts.

In addition, the watch can automatically send the user’s name and location to Garmin IERCC , a professional emergency response coordination center with 24/7 staff available to contact and coordinate with emergency services. emergency or others in order to provide the necessary assistance 3 . Garmin IERCC will remain in contact with the athlete through two-way messages with the watch until the emergency situation is resolved. Thanks to the LiveTrack function, family and friends will be able to follow the route in real time and even see the entire route previously planned by the user. During an activity, users can send updates of pace and mileage to your contacts and receive text messages and audio 4 motivators viewers who are following the activity. In order to use the functions connected to LTE, a subscription plan is required that can be accessed from 6.99 euros per month.

This multisport device allows the user to be ready for any challenge, from swimming in open water to doing long workouts or races. Thanks to it, it is possible to be aware of the training load or, even, of advanced running dynamics, among which the following stand out: cadence, contact time with the ground, stride length, vertical ratio, vertical oscillation and power. It also offers pre-installed full color TopoActive maps optimized for at-a-glance navigation and location tracking and the Climb Pro function , which provides real-time information on the unevenness of the route, which translates into being able to manage the effort along the way. In turn, it is equipped with a Pulse Ox sensor*, which measures the body’s oxygen absorption capacity both for acclimatization to altitude and for better sleep control. To all this, new statistics are added in the intervals and training on the track, taking into account if the runner has gone faster or slower than he had anticipated.

It allows you to download and store up to 1000 songs and synchronize playlists via Wi-Fi from streaming music services such as Amazon Music, Deezer and Spotify 5 and, thanks to Garmin Pay TM 6 technology , make contactless payments directly from the watch.

Forerunner® 55

Compact and lightweight, Forerunner ® 55 is a GPS sports watch for amateur running fans, offering a multitude of features to train, help improve habits and stay connected. Thus, in addition to having daily training suggestions based on training history, fitness level and recovery time, it includes race time predictions and race completion estimates. A watch that goes beyond running, because it integrates the control of multiple sports, bringing as a novelty the HIIT mode , swimming in a pool, virtual running and a respiratory activity profile .

Plus, it’s packed with advanced wellness tracking features like physical age, all-day breathing and stress management, and more. And all this with an incredible autonomy of its battery, which reaches 20 hours using GPS and up to two weeks in smartwatch mode.

It offers different forms of personalization, being able to download screens, widgets and applications through the Garmin Connect IQ TM Store. It is available in three colors (black, white and blue) and, thanks to the Quick Release system for quick extraction, it is possible to change the strap quickly and easily, being able to choose between all the strap options available.

Shared benefits

These two sports watches share various features, among which are the personalization of workouts using Garmin Coach 2.0, which allows you to prepare a race for distances of 5k, 10k or 21k. Specifically, the user has the guidance of three expert trainers and free training plans that adapt to the user and their goals.

Both models have PacePro TM technology , which allows you to plan the strategy to follow on the day of the race by offering a pace guide through GPS based on a route or distance selected through the Garmin Connect TM application . In addition, Forerunner ® 945 LTE, next to the function PacePro TM , provides indications of pace adjusted to the slope throughout the activity, depending on altitude, depending on your rate strategy.

At the same time, they are equipped with GPS, GLONASS and GALILEO simultaneously, which translates into having location with total accuracy via satellite, providing optimum precision even in the most complicated areas.

Similarly, for greater security and assistance during training, they have an automatic incident detector . When activated, and as long as the smartphone is connected to the watch (in the case of model 55), it will automatically send a message (in the event of an incident) with the exact position to the emergency contacts previously established in Garmin Connect. This message can be deactivated if the incident has not been so bad, or it can also be sent manually.

With regard to physiological parameters, they include VO2 maximum 7 , which allows determining how the body is adapting to high altitudes in high altitude sports and expeditions. They also have the Body Battery energy monitor , which uses a combination of stress, heart rate variability (HRV), sleep and activity data to calculate the body’s energy reserves at any time, and thus, be able to plan the day optimizing activity and rest times. And for women, both have from Garmin Connect with the possibility of being able to carry out the monitoring of both the menstrual cycle and the pregnancy.

In short, two new options that will allow any type of runner to fully enjoy their favorite sport and many more, always with safety as an essential element.

To mark the 2018 FIFA Football World CupTM in Russia, Hublot presented their first connected watch model, the Big Bang Referee 2018 FIFA World Cup RussiaTM. Equipped with the latest technological developments then available for wearable technology, this formidable tool was used both by referees on the pitch and by football fans, as a virtual stadium so they could join in with the competition. Two years later, Hublot returns with a new model: the , a connected watch equipped with the latest technology that adopts all the iconic Big Bang codes.

Full of sophistication and advanced technology, this piece fits in perfectly with Hublot’s watchmaking tradition. All the codes that have helped build the brand’s reputation thus far can be recognised instantly, by enthusiasts and the public alike.  A good pedigree always shines through! Its case is cut from materials such as black ceramic or titanium in a “sandwich” construction, an innovative style invented by Hublot in 2005. Extremely complex, it comprises 42 components, 27 of which are for the K Module alone, the “cage” which houses the digital heart of the watch. The design of the screws and pushers, the scratchproof sapphire crystal, and its rubber strap – with deployant buckle invented by Hublot in 1980 for the Classic model and the patented One Click system for easy interchangeability –  leave no-one in doubt: element by element, it is clear that this is a true Big Bang!

These functionalities have been revisited and enhanced to take advantage of the possibilities offered by the digital world. Despite this built-in technology, Hublot guarantees the watch is water-resistant to a depth of 30 meters.

Powered with Wear OS by Google™, the  enables customization to the smartwatch experience. The wearer can access apps on Google Play, get answers on the go with Google Assistant and make fast simple payments with Google Pay.

Available as soon as the  is released, the first edition is part of the #HublotLovesArt movement: a series of eight dials stemming from the imagination of storytelling artist Marc Ferrero. Every three hours, the dial changes colour, meaning eight creations are displayed in sequence over a 24-hour period. Each of these is based on a specific colour: Happy Yellow, Magic Blue, Orange Dynamite, All White, Lucky Green, Magic Red, Rainbow Spirit and Black Magic. And that is not all. Every full hour is marked with the appearance of an animation that lasts five seconds. A very #HublotLovesArt way of adding a touch of colour and rhythm to different moments throughout the day!

The  will be produced in two different editions: one in titanium and one in black ceramic. For the first time in Hublot’s history, this watch will be sold online on the brand’s website as well as on the Wechat network in China.

Xiaomi Mi Band 5: will have a special function to better control your health

For some weeks now, rumors and leaks with the Xiaomi Mi Band 5 as the protagonist have not stopped appearing. Several weeks ago we learned that the new edition of the Xiaomi smart bracelet was on the way, and everything indicates that its presentation will be held next June. In addition, we have already been able to know some details of its technical section, such as the inclusion of NFC in the global variant, which will allow all users of the bracelet to make mobile payments.

Xiaomi Mi Band 5: will have a special function to better control your health

Now, just a few hours after having been able to see the first supposedly real images of this Mi Band 5, new information from the TizenHelp portal, which is echoed in the official Xiaomi forum itself, reveals that the new bracelet would have a function designed to better control the health of users based on the PAI system.

Xiaomi Mi Band 5 would have an integrated “PAI” function, what does it mean?

Those who are not too familiar with the “PAI” concept should know that it is a monitoring technology that allows controlling a person’s health status through a series of factors, which serve to generate a “score”, backed by various scientific studies and research. According to these investigations, those people capable of maintaining a PAI score greater than 100 points, can extend their life by up to 5 years by reducing the risk of contracting cardiovascular diseases by up to 25%.

According to the company that developed this system, PAI is based on an individual profile that takes the heart rate data collected during the day to generate a score. This score will be based on data collected over a 7 day period. And although the score of 100 is the objective that every person should set, they explain that 50 PAI is a good starting point, since this score would imply enjoying 60% of the health benefits that are pursued with this technology.

Samsung and Iconic Fashion Brand Thom Browne Collaborate on Limited Edition Galaxy Z Flip

Introducing Galaxy Z Flip Thom Browne Edition—An Exclusive Smartphone Experience with Sartorial Style

NEW YORK, USA  February 11, 2020 – Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. and Thom Browne today revealed Galaxy Z Flip Thom Browne Edition, an exclusive collaboration from the leading technology company and iconic New York fashion brand. Galaxy Z Flip Thom Browne Edition draws on Samsung’s all new Galaxy Z Flip device and the fashion brand’s bold, timeless style to introduce a groundbreaking foldable smartphone experience.

“Partnering with Samsung to create Galaxy Z Flip Thom Browne Edition was an incredible opportunity to reimagine how consumers express themselves through their smartphone,” said Thom Browne. “We designed Galaxy Z Flip Thom Browne Edition just like I do my collections—with proportion, individuality and aesthetic in mind—to create the perfect blend of art and technology.”

Galaxy Z Flip Thom Browne Edition was created for those who are not afraid to make a statement—and who want their technology to be as iconic as their wardrobe. It features distinctive Thom Browne signature brand colors on a pebble grey exterior, pulled right from the runway and offering all of the same innovative features as Galaxy Z Flip. To complete the look, the special edition version also comes with custom designed Galaxy Buds+ and Galaxy Watch Active2.

“Working with Thom gave us the opportunity to make this stylish device even more covetable, bringing together Samsung’s latest technology innovations with Thom’s signature aesthetic inspired by his suits —the precision tailoring, the intentional use of materials, the elevated style that is uniquely his own,” said Stephanie Choi, Senior Vice President and Head of Global Marketing Team of Mobile Communications Business, Samsung Electronics. “Galaxy Z Flip Thom Browne Edition is a marriage of our shared desire to delight people down to the finest details.”

Signature Style and Design
A grey Thom Browne suit transforms into the sleek Galaxy Z Flip exterior. The limited edition smartphone is the first-of-its-kind to be encased in glass while still having a matte look that is soft to the touch and effortless to hold. Classic longwing brogues take a modern form with a grey pebble leather phone case, featuring the distinctive Thom Browne signature brand colors down the center. And, when unfolded, Galaxy Z Flip Thom Browne Edition reveals even more design details inside. Iconic blinds—a reference to the mid-century office aesthetic at the center of the Thom Browne world—appear onscreen every time the phone is turned on and off. App icons, labeled in classic text, create an elemental Thom Browne uniformity. And sound cues—a typewriter for the keyboard, an analogue ringtone, a shoe tap on a marble floor—create a unique soundtrack for the device. Custom Thom Browne wallpaper ties the entire experience together.

Coordinating Wardrobe of Accessories
From the minute they open the box, Galaxy fans are transported to a world of luxury and high style. Like opening a drawer to reveal a cache of treasured items, faille grey folding paper and Thom Browne’s signature brand colors create an all new fashion experience. Inside, consumers will find a Galaxy Watch Active2 with a grey leather strap and a Thom Browne custom watch face that lets you personalize your wellness with style. And for a complete connected look, Galaxy Z Flip Thom Browne Edition is finished off with Galaxy Buds+ in matching grey for a cohesive and connected experience on the go, as well as a specially designed leather phone case infused with Thom Browne’s iconic style.

A limited quantity of Galaxy Z Flip Thom Browne Edition devices will be available in select markets. Pre-orders for the device will begin Feb. 14 on Samsung.com and Thombrowne.com, as well as at NET-A-PORTER and MR PORTER. The official launch will be in March.
