Garmin Instinct Solar and Fenix 6 Pro Solar smartwatches have been launched in India. As the name suggests, these smartwatches are solar-powered wearables that come with Garmin’s patented solar charging technology. These smartwatches feature activity tracking support for indoor climbing, fishing, and mountain biking. The wearables are said to utilise solar energy to support functions like wrist-based heart rate, advanced sleep monitoring, stress tracking, giving health insights to users, among others. The company says that the new smartwatches come with long battery life.

Garmin says that it has designed a one-of-a-kind solar panel, called Power Glass, that is made up of an ultra-thin multilayer structure and allows for continuous solar charging even when the panel is partially covered.

Apart from its outdoor activity and health tracking features, the smartwatch now includes the Body Battery feature which analyses heart rate variability, stress level, sleep quality and activity data to determine overall energy levels.


There is a new feature called Pulse Ox (SpO2) tracker that measures blood oxygen saturation. The company says that this feature can monitor and indicate users if there is a drop in blood oxygen level even due to COVID-19 virus. The wearable is claimed to last up to 24 days in smartwatch mode indoors and more than 50 days with ample solar exposure.
