Garmin has launched the Fenix 7 Pro, a cutting-edge outdoor smartwatch packed with a wide range of features and available in multiple models. The price of this device can reach four digits, depending on the chosen variant.
The Fenix 7 Pro by Garmin offers customers three different size options: 42, 47, and 51 millimeters. The small version boasts a 1.2-inch display, while the 47-millimeter variant comes with a 1.3-inch screen, and the larger version features a 1.4-inch display. The 51-millimeter model also boasts a higher resolution of 280 x 280 pixels. The watch employs a MIP display, ensuring optimal readability even under direct sunlight. Additionally, a sapphire version is available, and the watch is water-resistant up to 10 ATM.
Retaining its core concept, the Fenix 7 Pro remains an incredibly versatile smartwatch, equipped with internal memory and a touchscreen. Users can store maps directly on the watch’s built-in memory, allowing for independent navigation without reliance on a connected smartphone. While access to Outdoor Maps+ is possible, it requires an additional subscription. The Hill Score feature enables users to track their progress in mountain running.
The larger Fenix 7X Pro model offers an impressive battery life of up to 37 days thanks to solar charging. In expedition GPS mode, the battery life extends even further to approximately 139 days. Moreover, the watch includes a bright LED flashlight and a red safety light. An ambient light sensor is also incorporated to adjust the brightness accordingly.
In addition to GPS support, the Fenix 7 Pro also utilizes Glonass and Galileo systems. It can measure heart rate and oxygen saturation, although it lacks an ECG function, which is a more advanced feature found in devices like the Apple Watch. The watch also supports contactless payment.
