The Garmin Fenix 7 series comprising of phoenix 7 7s and 7x. The Garmin Fenix 7s has already been listed at the Swedish online store tonnes in the meantime the net on net offer page which has since been taken down also lists January 18 as the sales start date.
So hopes are high for the phoenix 7 series to launch on the set date as for the build and specs all three models should feature a high-quality stainless steel case that is water-resistant to a depth of 10 atm. The Garmin Fenix 7 series also comes standard with an integrated GPS module spo2 sensor heart rate monitor sleep tracking.
The ability to display vo2 max respiratory rate stress and hydration monitoring but it misses out on ECG and bp monitoring if that’s what you’re interested in as usual Garmin offers maps for ski areas and golf courses and you’ll also find Garmin pay and music storage the main differences,
However, are in the size of watches the Garmin Fenix 7 packs a 1.3-inch touchscreen with a run time of up to 18 days and a case with a diameter of 47 millimeters. The Garmin 7s has a 1.2-inch display in the 42mm housing is a little more compact the battery life drops accordingly to 11 days,
Finally, the phoenix 7x is the largest model with a 1.4-inch display in 51 mm housing and a battery that lasts 28 days all the variables are assumed to be in the smartwatch mode and without solar power in the economy plus solar.

It will last muchlongerso now what are the features that didn’t make it to the Phoenix 7 that we expected first is the AMOLED display the idea of an amoled phoenix 7 had divided opinions from the very beginning. The phoenix 7 is known for its battery life and an amoled display would drain that faster as the great battery life and the outdoor use are unique selling points.
Garmin decided to stick with the transflective map display anyways they have added a touch display for phoenix 7 which is a great addition the touch display will be beneficial in common everyday use scenarios while the garment’s classic five buttons will be superior.
When doing sports and you have sweaty fingers or rain is pouring from a bow next is the support for lte the support for lt has been introduced alongside the 4runner 945 lte although with restrictions.
It is being used for live tracking and incidents only however even with these restrictions we would have liked to see phoenix 7 with lte but for the sake of battery life, Garmin decided not to go with it finally coming to the alleged pricing.
We are expecting phoenix 7 to be only slightly more expensive than Fenix 6 and that’s because there is no pro version as all iterations will have maps wi-fi and music the Garmin Fenix 7 might be 800 and the solar version at 915 dollars the phoenix 7s at 800 again and for solar 915 dollars but for the phoenix 7x it’s 915 whereas the solar variant will go for 1030 dollars the listed price are the ones converted from the euro pricing and it’s believed that the final price in us will be adjusted to the market.
