 Triples battery life with patented solar panel and industry’s first smartwatch with built-in flashlight

Seven days don’t make a week, you make it. Equipped with 1.2”, 1.3” and 1.4” MIP respectively, the outdoor series feature wear-resistant, scratch-resistant and anti-reflective high standard Power Sapphire, as well as highly permeable patented solar panel. By expanding the solar panels’ surface and optimizing the solar cell’s configuration and conductive materials, solar efficiency has increased by 200%, compared with the previous generation. The Power Manager function has been upgraded, allowing the overall battery life of fenix 7X to increase by nearly 300 percent, achieving up to 24 days of battery life under UltraTrac Mode.

With more than 40 advanced built-in sports modes suitable for mountaineering, triathlon, bouldering, cross-country running, etc, the new Real-Time Stamina function allows users to understand their current physical strength and adjust their speed and intensity in real time. In long-distance races, it helps athletes to strategize and manage their own efforts’ different intervals.

Athletes can activate the Up Ahead feature to set their strategy before the race using the Garmin Connect app that lets users create a route and mark waypoints. After syncing to the fenix 7 smart watch, one can quickly preview pre-set checkpoints, water stations, medical stations and other route data. fenix 7X is also the first in the industry to offer a built-in flashlight, supporting four levels of brightness and red strobe light, which can be activated in critical situations to display SOS signals. For runners who prefer to run at dusk or at night, the flashlight can be set to running cadence, and the watch will alternate between white and red lights as users swing their arm to make the lights even more prominent to enhance personal safety.
