Garmin Fenix 7



Comfortably in the top spot of our guide to the best fitness watches of 2022 is the Garmin Fenix 7. Released at the very beginning of the year, the luxury wearable delivers some of Garmin’s best technologies to date including lightweight titanium bezels, a real time stamina function, improved mapping and a sapphire solar display. The latter is touchscreen (a first for a Garmin Fenix watch) and comes protected by sapphire crystal glass for ultimate scratch resistant. The solar-powered lens beneath it then promises a remarkable battery life of up to 22 days in smartwatch mode. The Garmin Fenix 7 measures in at 47mm but is also available in a smaller 42mm on the Fenix 7S with both versions offering all the same functionalities including several key features perfect for runners. One of these is the new real time stamina function which uses your heart rate, fitness levels and more to track and manage your exertion and ultimately help you avoid overexerting too quickly during a run or cycle. Similarly, the new Visual Race Predictor helps you plan ahead by providing an estimate of what your pace could be for the distance you want to run based on your current fitness levels.


Key Features of the Garmin Fenix 7:

  • Lightweight 42mm or 47mm titanium case
  • Scratch resistant sapphire crystal glass
  • Solar-powered display with battery life of up to 22 days in smartwatch mode
  • Pulse Ox sensor and wrist based heart rate monitor for tracking your health
  • Navigate with preloaded TopoActive Europe maps and use built-in Wi-Fi for easy updates.
  • Real time stamina function to avoid overexertion
  • Store your music and music apps on the device plus playlists from your Spotify, Deezer or Amazon Music accounts


Garmin Fenix 7X



If you like the sound of the Garmin Fenix 7 above but fancy something even bigger and more extraordinary, then take a look at the incredible Garmin Fenix 7X. These statement luxury smartwatches sit on the wrist at an imposing 51mm and offer an even better battery life thanks to the solar powered display promising up to 37 days in smartwatch mode. The Garmin Fenix 7X boasts all the same apps and features as its smaller counterparts including a wrist based heart rate monitor, preloaded maps, Pulse Ox sensor, music storage and Garmin Pay but stands out for its additional flashlight feature. The integrated multi-LED flashlight is cleverly hidden behind a diffused lens at the edge of the case and is activated with a simple double tap of the case. The bright white light is perfect for exploring in the dark while its red mode and SOS Mode are designed to help you signal for assistance. Another handy feature for runners, the Garmin Fenix 7X smartwatch’s flashlight has a handy running mode set to match your cadence, flashing white when your arm swings forward and red when it swings back. It’s the perfect function for late-night runners who need another layer of visibility.


Key Features of the Garmin Fenix 7X:

  • Lightweight 51mm titanium case
  • Scratch resistant sapphire crystal glass
  • Solar-powered display with battery life of up to 37 days in smartwatch mode

TAG Heuer Connected 45



Another of 2022’s best luxury smartwatches is the TAG Heuer Connected. First launched in 2017, the series made history as the very first Swiss made smartwatch in the world being entirely manufactured in the brand’s workshops in La Chaux de Fonds. The beauty of the collection comes from its completely customisable aesthetic, giving the wearer the ability to choose from over 4,000 design options including steel, titanium and ceramic case materials, lugs and buckles, leather, rubber and metal straps and a huge variety of dial designs such as their legendary chronograph. The TAG Heuer Connected smartwatches also boast impressive smartwatch functionality like GPS, NFC payment ability, Google Fit Apps, voice control and smart notifications. The crown and push buttons replace the touchscreen for greater comfort while training and integrated sensors for heart rate give you real-time stats on your performance. We’re also treated to a clever wellbeing feature, swimming apps and a 50 metre water resistance.

Garmin EPIX 2



Yet another extraordinary release from Garmin this year is the Garmin EPIX. Also known as the EPIX Gen 2, these watches revive a hands-free navigation device from 2015 but other than the name, there are few similarities between the two. The new Garmin EPIX 2 offers all the same spec as the Garmin Fenix but instead of a solar-powered display, it opts for brilliant AMOLED. The AMOLED screen boasts a 416 x 416 pixel resolution offering bright and responsive access to apps like the full-colour TopoActive mapping, animated workouts and music storage and despite its power hungry nature, the display still promises a power reserve of up to 16 days in smartwatch mode. The Garmin EPIX watches measure to 47mm and come with scratch resistant titanium bezels and sapphire crystal glass as well as Garmin Coach, daily workout suggestions, GPS and access to multiple navigation satellites for improved position accuracy in areas where GNSS signals are reflected, weak or typically don't penetrate.

  • Lightweight 47mm titanium case
  • Scratch resistant sapphire crystal glass
  • AMOLED display with 416 x 416 pixel resolution
  • Battery life of up to 16 days in smartwatch mode

  • Real time stamina function and Visual Race Time predictor
  • Smart notifications and music storage

Housed within is the Wear OS system by Google which guarantees Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and GPS connectivity as well as Google Pay and Google Assistant. One of the new features on the Montblanc Summit Lite is its updated wrist based heart rate monitor alongside a range of trademarked apps including the Cardio Coach, Body Energy, Sleep Tracker and Stress Tracker.
