The Garmin fenix 7 Sapphire Solar is Garmin’s top-of-the line watch series packed with the most advanced technologies to help you track your workouts and perform better.
The fenix 7 Sapphire Solar edition is the pinnacle of the Garmin fenix series, having all of the same great features as the fenix 7 and fenix 7 Solar, but with the additional benefit of the Power Sapphire lens™, which can convert sunlight into battery power while being incredibly durable—the sapphire lens is extremely hard, which makes it much more difficult to scratch than glass.
The updated and ultratough design features a 1.3” display that is tested to U.S. military standards for thermal, shock and water resistance. The newest fenix 7 watches feature the trusted button controls that work in any environment and a responsive touchscreen interface so you can quickly access your selections.
With preloaded topographical maps and navigation sensors, getting lost is a thing of the past. You can access multiple global navigation satellite systems (GPS, GLONASS and Galileo) so you have the most accurate readings and can track in more challenging environments than GPS alone.
The fenix 7 Sapphire Solar also tracks advanced training metrics during your runs, that includes pretty much everything you can think of—pace, distance, heat and altitude adjusted VO2 Max, heart rate, trail running adjustment, recovery advisor, real-time stamina data and more. Caroline loved all of the different options in our Garmin fenix 7 Sapphire Solar review.
There are also some great features on the fenix 7 watches to help you race better. A visual race predictor gives you an estimate of what your pace could be for the distance you want to run based on your past performances. Garmin also developed PacePro™, which keeps you on pace during your race with grade-adjusted guidance. Plus, the “Up Ahead” feature shows you selected information for what’s coming, including aid stations, upcoming distance/elevation and key trail points.
The fenix 7 Sapphire Solar has all of the great features you know and love from Garmin. Smart notifications appear on the phone, so you will always get a text message or alerts. You can listen to your music with 32GB of storage (up to 2,000 songs) so you do not need to carry your phone. Plus, the device includes WiFi connectivity and Garmin Pay, so if your run isn’t going well you can pay for an ice cream break with your watch.
