Garmin Fenix 7 Astrix: To Boldly Go
Human spaceflight missions present numerous challenges and unknowns regarding the effects of microgravity and space travel on the human body. Understanding these effects is critical for the success and safety of future space exploration missions. To address this challenge, the upcoming Polaris Dawn mission will utilize Garmin fenix 7 adventure sports watches to continuously monitor and collect biometric data from crew members during the five-day mission.
The Polaris Dawn crew members will each wear a Garmin fenix 7 during the mission to provide 24×7 insights into the impact of space travel on the human body. The data collected will include heart rate, pulse oximetry, and sleep patterns, and will be continuously monitored and collected on a single battery charge.
The data collected by the Garmin fenix 7 adventure smartwatches will provide a trove of biometric information that will be added to the TRISH EXPAND database, aiding current and future research to study and understand human health and performance for all future human space exploration missions.

The use of Garmin fenix 7 adventure smartwatches in the Polaris Dawn mission highlights the critical role that wearable technology can play in advancing our understanding of the effects of space travel on the human body. The exceptional battery life, rugged durability, and extensive suite of all-day health monitoring features make the Garmin smartwatches an ideal choice for this type of research.
The Polaris Dawn mission and the utilization of Garmin fenix 7 adventure smartwatches represent a significant step forward in our understanding of the effects of space travel on the human body. The data collected during the mission will be valuable in guiding future space exploration efforts and ensuring the safety and success of future missions.
OK Garmin’s press release didn’t call it the Astrix (sorry!) but I couldn’t resist and they sure as heck weren’t going to call it Cosmix. Nevertheless, we’ve come to an interesting phase in smart watches where an off-the-shelf adventure watch is suitable for space exploration and medical research.
