There are smartwatches that look like futuristic versions of traditional timepieces, and then there are smartwatches that you’d want to wear through a zombie apocalypse. The Garmin Fenix 7, currently on our wrists, falls in the latter category. But with a design that screams Spartathlon more than a black-tie event, and prices starting from ₹82,990, is it worth your consideration? Read on.
Garmin Fenix 7 review
King of the outdoors
Design and Display: Built like a tank
Fitness tracking: Personal coach 24x7
Software: Data overload
Battery: Solar power FTW
Another ace up the Fenix 7’s sleeves is the battery life, which is calculated in weeks and not hours. In the past couple of weeks since getting our hands on the watch, we’ve only charged it once.
Verdict: Should you buy it?
The Bear Grylls of smartwatches that can go anywhere and track anything, with weeks worth of battery life.
