The problem with smartwatches these days is its battery life. A lot of smartwatches barely last for more than a few days, which means you’ll have to remember to charge it every now and then or be left with a paperweight on your wrist.
This is why when it comes to battery life, Garmin’s smartwatches are hard to beat as they offer some of the longest-lasting smartwatches in the market right now. The only problem is that Garmin’s smartwatches can be pricier than the average wearable, but the good news is that if you’ve been eyeing Garmin’s smartwatch, note that the Fenix 7X is currently on discount where its price has been cut down from $999.99 to $799.99, saving you $200 in the process.
The Fenix 7X Sapphire Solar, as its name implies, is a solar-powered smartwatch. This means that in addition to traditional charging methods, it can also be recharged with solar energy. In theory this should extend the battery life of the smartwatch and gives you an alternative way of charging it in a pinch.
According to Garmin, it boasts up to 28 days of battery life if you use it normally, or up to 37 hours with 3 hours of sunlight exposure daily. It boasts all the features you might expect from a smartwatch including 24/7 health monitoring, heart rate monitoring, support for the GNSS network, and various workout modes to choose from.
