Whether you’re already obsessed with outdoor pursuits or want to take the next steps on your explorative journey, a Garmin watch is the ultimate adventure companion. The rugged smartwatches are some of the best on the market for enjoying activities like hiking, mountain biking and exploration.
Garmin’s newest models on offer push the boundaries even further. Let’s start with the Garmin epix Pro, which packs in a host of top tech. The bright AMOLED display offers a full colour experience which can be viewed in any kind of lighting.
For those adventures which go beyond the daylight, there’s even a powerful built-in flashlight. The multi-LED design frees up your hands for other tasks, while still offering excellent illumination to keep you on the right path.
You’ll never need to worry about battery life, either. Garmin watches are famed for their excellent longevity, and that trend continues here. You'll get up to 31 days of battery life in smartwatch mode and up to 52 hours in GPS mode, perfect for those longer treks and adventures.
You will be able to spend more time with your watch on your wrist than on charge, helping to collect valued data such as sleep score. HRV status and more. Kick in the battery saver mode and you can even squeeze an extra ten days of life out of it!
Plus, with 3 sizes on offer, there really is an option for every wrist here. Choose between 42mm, 47mm or 51mm variants, for the best fit.
That’s not all that is on offer, though. The Garmin fēnix 7 Pro is another excellent choice at the top of the brands’ range. This one packs in solar charging capabilities, to harness the power of the sun and keep your smartwatch going for longer. Well over a month of juice can be attained this way, depending on your usage.
That fantastic flashlight mentioned earlier is present and correct on this model, too. You’ll get the same brilliant illumination power, all while leaving your hands free to do other things.
On top of that, both the fēnix 7 Pro and the epix Pro pack in the most advanced training features, to ensure you’re always working hard towards your goals. Users get the benefit of features like stamina tracking, PacePro – which lets users create a pacing strategy for any GPS course uploaded to their watch, accounting for elevation changes along the route – and ClimbPro.
All of that makes for two of the best devices for accurately measuring performance. Top that up with other brilliant features like the ruggedness and durability, and the fantastic battery life on offer, and you’re looking at a truly compelling package.
