Garmin reaffirms its commitment to solar technology with the launch of the fēnix 6 PRO Solar, Instinct® Solar and tactix® Delta Solar series

After the model launch fēnix 6X PRO SolarGarmin goes one step further in its commitment to solar technology by incorporating it into its full range of Smart watches adventure and multisport fēnix® 6 and 6S, Instinct® and tactix® Delta.

 Now all fēnix 6, including the lots, will incorporate activity profiles of surf, Mountain biking, indoor climbing, bouldering, mountain ski, tools to manage the autonomy of the clock, wellness and monitoring applications and much more.

Garmin Seal Solar Technology

Garmin solar charging is made possible by Power Glass ™, a new patented technology developed by the company's team of engineers.

It is a semi-transparent, practically invisible layer, from photovoltaic solar cells located in the lens of the watch that collect energy from the sun throughout the day, when the watch face is exposed to light.

The solar panel is protected by the glass Corning® Gorilla Glass 3, designed with an already resistant DX treatment scratch proof, anti-glare and fingerprints.

In fēnix 6 solar, The charging system captures solar energy in two areas: on the one hand, around the perimeter of the panel, where a region that harvests solar energy with maximum efficiency is located.

On the other hand, the entire surface of lThe clock display also allows solar capture. In Instinct, a large part of around the screen are photovoltaic cells in charge of capturing all solar energy with maximum efficiency.

Solar Charge: from theory to practice

To keep control of the load, by means of a measured widgetA, users will be able to quickly verify the performance and solar capture capacity of their watch, directly on the wrist and in real time.

Furthermore, reinforcing lto autonomy management, customizable function Power ManagerAlso called Power Manager and available on all sundials, it allows users to adjust and control battery life by disabling certain functions to extend battery life as needed.

The real benefits of solar charging on the battery are significant. Below are the graphics of the battery according to the model, mode of use and operation of the solar charge:

Thanks to the use of this cutting-edge technology, all users will have more autonomy of use, fewer limitations and will be able to enjoy the adventure for a longer time without giving up all the features, activity profiles and intelligent functions included in the devices.

With this action, Garmin continues to invest in and develop its own innovative technology that enables users to meet and meet their daily needs.

Instinct® Solar: new models, maximum resistance

For their part, users who practice mountain biking will have three new tools: the Grit function which calculates the degree of difficulty of the route and the terrain using data from elevation, accelerometer y GPS;.

The Flow metric that creates a ranking based on how well and smooth the route is running; Jump statistics that calculate the number of jumps, distance and time.

With all these data lcyclists will be able to see and evaluate their progress and in turn, set new challenges and improvement objectives on each route.

In addition, fēnix 6 is compatible with Garmin's new QuickFit® quarter turn mount for cycling.

For lovers of the indoor climbing and block climbing the watch houses metrics such as the number of attempts and falls, climbing distance and time, elevation change and difficulty of each route.
