Garmin fēnix 7X Solar
Less than two years ago we profiled the Garmin fēnix 6X Solar and now Garmin has released their latest multisport GPS watch—the Garmin fēnix 7X Solar. Available in three sizes, the Fenix 7S (for small) has a 42mm diameter screen, the Fenix 7 is larger at 47mm and finally the Fenix 7X at 51mm. For each of these versions, there are also three editions: standard, solar, and sapphire solar which results in 16 possible combinations ranging in price from $899.99CAN / $699.99US to $1,129.99CAN / $999.99US. The Fenix 7 offers the latest in Garmin wearable technology with the sapphire edition being the most feature-rich, including not just the more durable sapphire glass but also multi bang GPS and more storage. We got to test out the Garmin fēnix 7X Solar which has a long list of upgrades (listed below) over the Fenix 6X. The most impressive new features have to be the touchscreen display which allows you to swipe and tap options directly on the screen but this can also be turned off if you prefer the typical Garmin five-button navigation system. In addition to this, there is now a flashlight built into the front edge of the fēnix 7X Solar which has white and red led lights that can be set to pulse or shine at different intensities. There is also a new and improved Gen 4 Elevate Optical heart rate sensor, Multi-band GPS, and improved battery life thanks to the larger more efficient solar panel located on the screens bevel. The Fenix 7X also now has access to all world maps for free and a new Ski View that shows ski resorts and run names across the world. If you want to customize your Fenix 7X you can now configure the Fenix 7X watch directly from the smartphone app and you can also download apps from the Garmin Connect IQ Store directly on the watch, no need to do this from the smartphone app any longer. The Fenix 6X was a very impressive multisport GPS watch and Garmin has only improved upon this in the latest Fenix 7X version. Now easier to use with more features and options the Fenix 7X just keeps getting better and better. This is why it’s been our watch of choice for backcountry skiing and summer adventure and it should be yours too.
