Garmin Announce Launch of new Instinct Solar, Fenix 6 Solar and Tactix Solar

Garmin are lighting up the world as they bring their solar powered technology into some of their most iconic collections including a brand new range of Garmin Instinct Solar, Garmin Fenix 6 Solar and Garmin Tactix Solar watches.

 

We saw Garmin’s first ever solar powered watch unveiled last summer with the Garmin Fenix 6X Pro Solar and wearable wearers everywhere were overjoyed with the prospect of an even better battery life. We are now incredibly excited to announce that the innovative Power Glass solar charging lens will be featured on a stunning new selection of timepieces.

 

The Garmin Power Glass works by using a very thin 1mm wide strip just on the inside of the bezel and another under the display face to absorb energy from the sun and turn it into battery life. The default dial on each of the new watches will also feature a sun icon with a total of 10 ‘rays’ to demonstrate the intensity level of the sun. When no rays are shown you are probably sat in the shade, but when you step out into the sunshine the dial will show you a ray for every 10% of intensity.

 

There are a good number of new Garmin solar powered watches to get through, each providing unprecedented battery life to those that want to explore endlessly under the sun. Whether you’re looking for a military standard timepiece, a tactical training instrument or a fashionable fitness accessory, we are certain that one of these new solar smartwatches will be perfectly suited to you. If you’d like any assistance with purchasing any of the new Garmin Solar watches listed below, you can get in touch with the Jura Watches team on 01335 453453 or at help@jurawatches.co.uk.

 

Garmin Instinct Solar Smartwatches

 

Still built to U.S military standard 810G for thermal, shock and water resistance to 100 metres, the legendary Garmin Instinct is back but this time with a solar powered lens so you can conquer the elements for longer. Alongside a battery life of up to 54 days in smartwatch mode, these wearables feature GPS, GLONASS and Galileo sensors, built-in sports apps and smart notifications all on your wrist.

 

There are five standard Garmin Instinct Solar smartwatches available in Graphite, Tidal Blue, Orchid, Sunburst and Flame Red alongside three special edition duos that celebrate differing environments. The first is the Instinct Solar Tactical Edition available in Moss or Black for a subdued aesthetic perfect for stealthy exploration. We also have two Garmin Instinct Solar Camo Editions in Lichen Camo and Graphite Camo featuring a unique military-inspired case pattern and two Garmin Instinct Solar Surf Edition watches in Pipeline and Cloudbreak designed for those that want to outlast the tides.
