There’s a 1.3-inch display on the Garmin Fenix 7 and a 1.2-inch display on the Garmin Fenix 7S. The Garmin Fenix 7X has a 1.4-inch display.
Materials like titanium and sapphire have been used in the design of the new flagship smartwatches, which have silicone bands. In addition to the touchscreen, Garmin Fenix 7 series smartwatches feature a 5-button interface. In addition, the wearables have multi-LED flashlights.
The Fenix 7 trio’s features include solar charging support and claims of a 54% increase in solar surface area compared to the Fenix 6X Pro’s solar surface area. As a result of these changes, the new smartwatch offers better battery life.
Storage capacity has been increased to 32GB in the new Garmin smartwatches. Garmin’s solar-powered Fenix 7X devices are expected to last for up to 5 weeks in smartwatch mode and for up to 5 days in GPS mode, as previously stated Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and ANT+ connectivity are included in the new Garmin Fenix 7 series smartwatches.

Garmin has introduced a slew of new features to the Fenix 7 series, in addition to golf courses, surf, and snow modes. The Real-Time Stamina function from Garmin is now available in the new line of wearables, allowing athletes to keep tabs on their exertion levels in real time.
Another new technology, Visual Race Predictor, uses a runner’s running history and overall fitness to assess training progress.
Garmin’s new Fenix 7 series smartwatches include a health-related feature called Recovery Time Advisor. For each session, it analyzes the intensity of training and stress, as well as daily activity and sleep, to determine how much time is needed to recuperate. Workouts are suggested each day depending on your current training load and fitness level, according to Daily Workout Suggestions.
Spotify, Amazon Music, and Deezer are all supported by the Garmin Fenix 7 series. The connect IQ Store On Device lets users browse for and download new programs, which can then be installed directly from the watch using Wi-Fi.
