Garmin Malaysia officially launched the new generation of the Fenix series, Fenix 7S, Fenix 7, Fenix 7X with enhanced solar cell efficiency and expanded battery life.

At the same time, Garmin Malaysia launched the Epix, an epic smartwatch featuring a high-definition AMOLED touchscreen and multisport functions.

The newly launched Fenix 7 Series and Epix are built to US Military MIL-STD-810G specifications and support Multi-GNSS positioning (GPS, GLONASS, and Galileo).

The Fenix 7 series delivers nearly 300% improved battery life performance by enhanced solar conversion rate and introduces the Industry’s first built-in flashlight.

Equipped with 1.2”, 1.3”, and 1.4” MIP respectively, the outdoor series features wear-resistant, scratch-resistant, and anti-reflective high standard Power Sapphire, as well as a highly permeable patented solar panel. 

The new Multi-Band frequency setting greatly increases positioning speed and accuracy in challenging conditions from downtown to the mountaintop. New functions include the ‘Up Ahead’ tool and Real-Time Stamina, enabling outdoor enthusiasts to set the best route beforehand and keep track of their physical strength in real-time.

By expanding the solar panels’ surface and optimizing the solar cell’s configuration and conductive materials, solar efficiency has increased by 200%, compared with its previous generation. The Power Manager function has been upgraded, allowing the overall battery life of Fenix 7X to increase by nearly 300%, achieving up to 24 days of battery life under UltraTrac Mode. 

The Fenix 7X is also the first in the industry to offer a built-in flashlight, supporting four levels of brightness and red strobe light, which can be activated in critical situations to display SOS signals. For runners who prefer to run at night, they can set the flashlight to running cadence, and the watch will alternate between white and red lights as you swing your arm, making the lights even more prominent to enhance personal safety.

Athletes can activate the Up Ahead feature to set their strategy before the race: Using the Garmin Connect app, they can create a route and mark waypoints. After syncing to the Fenix 7 smartwatch, they can quickly preview preset checkpoints, water stations, medical stations, and other route data.

With more than 40 advanced built-in sports modes, suitable for mountaineering, triathlon, bouldering, cross-country running, etc, the new Real-Time Stamina function allows users to understand their current physical strength and adjust their speed and intensity in real-time. In long-distance races, it helps athletes to strategize and manage their own efforts at different intervals.

Epix, the first in the outdoor series to be equipped with a built-in AMOLED high-definition touch screen, also features a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal lens and 45mm lightweight titanium alloy bezel, designed for the modern urban adventurer in mind. 

To challenge the athletic spirit, it offers more than 40 built-in outdoor and indoor sports modes, supporting over 42,000 golf course maps and 2,200 ski resorts around the world. In addition to the upgraded sports modes, health functions and smart features, the watch still maintains an exceptional battery life for long hours of use. It can continuously record data for 30 hours under GPS sports mode, has an ample 16-day battery life under smartwatch mode, and up to 21 days when the Power Manager function is activated.
