About this deal

HR zones, HR alerts, HR calories, % HR max, % HRR, recovery time, auto max HR, HRV stress test with compatible strap, HR broadcast On top of access to those satellites, Garmin is also introducing new multi frequency positioning, which uses multiple frequencies from available satellite systems to improve outdoor accuracy. It works well too. I used it against a Fenix 6 Pro and it’s actually surprising just how much more accurate it was pinpointing exact positioning in real-time and plotting routes on maps post-activity in the Garmin Connect app.

Music streaming and continuous blood oxygen monitoring has a notable drain on battery life like other Garmin watches too. Display: 1.4-inch 280x280-pixel resolution, sunlight-visible, transflective memory-in-pixel with Power Sapphire lens GPS/GLONASS/Galileo, multi-frequency positioning, Garmin elevate wrist HR monitor, Barometric Altimeter, Compass, Gyroscope, Accelerometer, Thermometer, Pulse Ox Optimise your body’s energy reserves, using heart rate variability, stress, sleep and other data to gauge when you’re ready to be active or when you may need to rest. Trail running, running, hiking, climbing, mountain biking, skiing, snowboarding, XC skiing, stand-up paddleboarding, rowing, kayaking, Jumpmaster, tacticalOnce the flashlight app is launched, the top right start button is used to toggle the light on and off. There are four white bars and one red one on the display. Tap the bars to choose the white brightness level or the red light. When you turn the light off, the watch will remember your last setting and activate the same light option the next time you turn on the flashlight. While in the flashlight app, press and hold the center-left button to access even more light settings. Here you can choose either strobe or distress patterns. If you select strobe, then available options include blitz, beacon, pulse, blink, and custom. You can select them and then scroll up and down to view the light pattern. The light pattern is shown at the top of the watch display too.

Battery: Up to 28 days in smartwatch mode or 37 days with three hours a day of solar charging, up to 89 hours with GPS/122 hours with solar, up to 63 hours with all satellite systems/77 with solar, and up to 16 hours in GPS mode with music playing Get a full breakdown of your light, deep and REM sleep stages. View it all on a dedicated widget that includes your sleep score and insights. While you can set the Garmin Epix display to be always-on, the battery life is severely impacted. It's awesome to have the watch face, with selected data, always visible on the Fenix 7X without having to lift my wrist or push a button. Both devices look great in low light and in direct sunlight, but the Epix is brilliant in low light and dark conditions. There’s a Pulse Ox sensor to measure blood oxygen during the night for an additional hit of sleep data, though sleeping with this watch is a challenge. It’s going to prove more useful for assessing your acclimation to altitude, though using this sensor continuously will have a noticeable impact on battery life. Battery life on the Garmin Epix is very good; however, the comparable Fenix 7 Sapphire Solar will get you a couple of more days in smartwatch mode, and the big Fenix 7X Sapphire Solar I am reviewing provides far longer battery life. Battery life needs are clearly something that will drive people to select the 51mm Fenix 7X Sapphire Solar, and it truly is refreshing to charge up the watch rarely.There are also many more watch settings mirrored in the Garmin Connect smartphone app as Garmin works to streamline the Garmin software experience and create a richer experience for people. I find it easier to setup specific exercise details on my phone's large display rather than the watch, so I really appreciate this functionality and wonder if companies like COROS have been helping motivate Garmin to take steps like this. Sensors and accessories remain a watch-only function, but that makes sense since it requires a direct Bluetooth or ANT+ connection from the watch to the accessory. Meet any athletic or outdoor challenge with the rugged fēnix 7X Sapphire Solar multisport GPS watch. Its scratch-resistant Power Sapphire™ solar charging lens uses the sun’s energy to extend battery life — powering advanced training features, sports apps, health and wellness monitoring sensors and more.

Stay informed when you’re in the snow. This preloaded profile helps distinguish between skiing and climbing. It shows metrics specific to either ascent or descent. Get ready to catch some waves. This fēnix watch works with the Surfline Sessions™ feature, which creates a video of every wave you ride in front of a Surfline® camera4. So you can watch them later and see how you did with your Surfline Sessions subscription. There are options to control phone notifications during your activity and at all other times when you are not recording data as part of activity. If you are connected to an Android smartphone, you can go to Settings>Notifications in the Garmin phone app to customize exactly which apps provide notifications to the watch. You do not have this per-app control when connected to an iPhone.

Where it excels is for things like running, swimming and those more niche activities where you get plenty in the way of metrics and the ability to customise data fields and see activity-specific data on a nice big screen. Crucially, the data during workouts and for fueling training analysis and insights, which remain the same as the ones available on the 6X, feel reliable. GPS-based distance, time and pace. Cadence, real-time performance compared to average (after 6-20 mins). PacePro pacing strategies. Run workouts, race predictor. Customisable alerts, audio prompts, finish time, virtual partner, race an activity, auto multisport activities, multi-sport, course guidance Connectivity and sensors: WiFi, Bluetooth, ANT+, GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, BeiDou, QZSS, optical HR, barometer, compass, altimeter, Pulse Ox For training guidance that takes you and your fitness level into account, get daily run and ride recommendations based on your current training load and training status.

When paired with the HRM-Pro™ chest strap (sold separately), the ski power metric helps measure the actual exercise load of your cross-country workouts. Alerts (time, distance, heart rate goals), courses, Garmin cycle map, race an activity, manual bike lap. Something else that is new but fairly simple at this time is that Garmin Connect IQ can be added as a "sport" for installing and uninstalling apps directly from the watch. I have installed music apps that can be uninstalled, and I can select from a couple of other recommended ones to install.
