Garmin Fenix 7 – What To Expect

It’s only a few days away now, here’s all we know and what to expect from the Fenix 7

 

You are as impatient as me so here are some photos and factettes to tease, titillate and entertain you and hopefully keep you happy until the actual release/announcement dates.  This is pretty much the full list of what we know with a few inclusions of other certainties. Most of this information is independently corroborated by completely different original sources, I have not seen any original sources of images, although some claiming to be real are linked to below.

If anyone tells you the Fenix 7 doesn’t exist then just smile at them, it never pays to get angry. There are literally hundreds (maybe thousands) of people in the Garmin supply chain who know about these watches. HUNDREDS of people! Oh, and I have real pictures of Fenix 7X and Epix 2 that are not marketing shots from Garmin ;-), I just can’t share them right now.

If you have any intel or thoughts to add…you know what to do

The most important questions first.

Q: When is the Garmin Fenix 7 due to be released?

A: Almost certainly the Garmin Fenix 7 will be released (announced and available to ship) on Tuesday 18th January 2022. There will be an announcement around 4PM CET, however, in the past watches have been made available to buy on Garmin.com at the start of the release day in each country.

Q: How Much is the Garmin Fenix 7

A: There are numerous models and the prices vary a lot. As a generalisation, it is about Eu/$/£50 more for the Fenix 7 equivalent of the Fenix 6 at rrp. The prices get higher for higher quality materials like titanium, larger sizes like 7X, better lenses with Sapphire coating, better screen resolution from AMOLED and for Solar models. Fenix 7 and 7S are both priced in the UK at £599 whereas the Epix Gen 2 AMOLED is priced at £799 – you spend $/£1000 or more with the various options. Ignoring Solar/AMOLED and battery life, the features on all models are effectively the same and there’s not that much more added compared to Fenix 6 features..
