Description

Garmin’s Fenix 7 series comes in three sizes which include the 42mm Fenix 7S, 47mm Fenix 7 and the 51mm Fenix 7X, and each of these is available in different models. The Fenix 7S which has the smallest case size comes in 5 different models which include;

  1. Fenix 7s Standard
  2. Fenix 7s Solar (discontinued)
  3. Fenix 7s Sapphire Solar
  4. Fenix 7s Pro Solar
  5. Fenix 7s Pro Sapphire Solar

The Pro models released in May 2023 are the latest and the most comprehensive. All 5 models have the same design and features but the Pro models feature ECG, an LED flashlight, higher storage capacity and as well have an ambient light sensor that auto-regulates the brightness of the display.

The Fenix 7S which comes in a 42mm frame size is the most compact of all the Fenix 7 models and is also quite lightweight. The Fenix 7s Pro Solar is a durably built watch with a fibre-polymer frame paired with an 18mm silicone band while the bezel and rear cover are made of stainless steel. Meanwhile, Corning Gorilla Glass DX protects the display and it weighs just 63 grams including the straps. The watch is also rated 10ATM, which means it can survive water pressure up to 100 meters and as such is swim-proof. The watch is also equipped with an LED flashlight that’s significantly bright enough to illuminate dark spaces. It comes in handy for those who prefer to workout at night.

The Fenix 7s Pro solar is also easy to interact with, thanks to the touch-sensitive screen and 5 physical buttons. And it’s available in a silver case paired with a graphite band.

As a result of its 42mm case size, the Fenix 7s has the smallest display size of 1.2 inches which like the Fenix 7 and 7x models is also powered by a colorful transflective MIP LCD that’s bright and easy to read outdoors even under direct sunlight. Moreover, the Fenix 7s Pro Solar has an ambient light sensor that automatically regulates the brightness of the display.

In the fitness activity tracking department, the Fenix 7s Pro Solar is equipped with an inbuilt GPS and several sensors that makes it a comprehensive activity tracker. It also has a multi-band GPS that ensures that even in difficult terrains like those with very tall buildings or trees, the watch can still track your routes and pace accurately. It will track your heart rate, blood oxygen and stress all day. It can also track your skin temperature and features the newly introduced ECG app that lets you take ECG tests directly from the watch. Moreover, you get loads of sports profiles and a long list of other activity-tracking features.

The Fenix 7s Pro Solar comes with 32GB storage that allows you to download music to the watch which you can listen to offline by connecting a Bluetooth headphone. Music can be downloaded from music streaming services like Spotify, Deezer and Amazon Music.

In the battery department, Garmin claims the Fenix 7s Pro Solar can go up to 11 days and up to 14 days when Solar kicks in. Meanwhile, with all GPS systems activated, it’s up to 37 hours and up to 46 hours when solar is activated.
