Introducing the Garmin Fenix 7 Sapphire Solar

2022 has only just begun and already Garmin is leading the way in luxury smartwatch design with the launch of the Garmin Fenix 7 collection. Tough but light, fully solar-powered and the perfect everyday functional tool watch, the series marks one of the biggest launches for the brand since the Fenix 6.


There’s so much to discuss on the Garmin Fenix 7. What’s new for the Fenix 7? What are the differences between the Fenix 7 and the Fenix 6? What can we expect for pricing, design and sizes? Don’t worry, we will have all these questions answered for you in this feature. On top of that, we’ll also be reviewing the collection in more detail over the next few days, so keep your eyes peeled for that. Before then, here’s a run-down of what the new Garmin Fenix 7 collection has on offer.



Garmin Fenix 6 vs Garmin Fenix 7: What’s the difference?


The highly anticipated Garmin Fenix 7 offers a whole host of features that trump its predecessor. For starters, all fifteen models are built to last for the most extreme endurance activities with up to 578 hours in max battery GPS mode and up to 37 days in smartwatch mode with Solar. Yes, you read that right. That’s a whopping 16 days extra than the Fenix 6X Pro Solar launched two years ago. The designs also feature both touchscreens and buttons for easy manipulation on all occasions.


The designs are also entirely engineered from titanium parts and refined using high quality DLC (Diamond Like Carbon) coating for impressive durability. The titanium cases are reinforced with fibre polymer housing and paired with rubber straps of various colours – although we predict several other watch straps will also be available in the near future. Each Garmin Fenix 7 watch is also equipped with sapphire crystal solar displays for much better scratch resistance compared to previous Fenix models with Gorilla Corning glass. There’s also the addition of metal lugs and button guards.



The Garmin Fenix 7, 7S and 7X models also expectedly offer several improved apps and features which including Multi-Band GNSS, improved physiological training metrics, real time stamina, expanded sport profiles, HIIT workouts, sync settings, Up Ahead feature, Visual Race Predictor and pre-installed TOPO maps with Wi-Fi map downloads. Our favourite addition to the Garmin Fenix 7 however is the Flashlight. It is currently only available on the Garmin Fenix 7X watch and allows for a quick access to a multi-LED flashlight for hands-free illumination… but more on that below.



Flashlight Capability


If you’re like us, struggling in the dark with the torch on your phone is a common occurrence. It’s exactly for this reason that the new flashlight feature on the Garmin Fenix 7X was such a welcome surprise. To access the flashlight, it’s as simple as double tapping the light button at any time which will automatically illuminate the ground in front of you from beneath the case of the watch. Its design is also entirely ambidextrous so no matter which wrist you choose to wear your Garmin Fenix 7 on, you have hands-free and easy access to the function. And for when the light isn’t in use, you don’t even know it’s there. It is wonderfully integrated into the fibre-reinforced case behind a diffused transparent lens.



Despite the addition of a flashlight, the Garmin Fenix 7X still maintains a water resistance of 100 metres. It can also be used for more than just seeing in the dark. Its red mode allows you to signal for help since red LED is widely believed to have more advantages over white. SOS Mode also allows the light to flash to signal for help and will display information about the user and/or their emergency contact on the watch display.
