Garmin announced the extension of its patented solar charging technology into two of its flagship outdoor smartwatch Instinct and fēnix series, introducing the Instinct, fēnix 6 and 6S Solar.

Unlike other solar-powered watches that only uses solar energy for simple functions such as time, Garmin’s solar charging technology is so far the only watch that utilizes such energy for more sophisticated functions, such as such as heart rate, GPS, various sensors and data calculation.

Garmin’s solar technology is also eco-friendly, reducing up to 59% compared to other smartwatches due to the power-efficient charging frequency.

Even for any event of limited sun exposure, Garmin’s smartwatches go on ticking with its solar charging, whether their caked with mud or covered by cloth, allowing users to enjoy their outdoor activities for longer periods of time with no worries.

The fēnix 6S Pro Solar battery performance in smartwatch mode is up to 9 days indoors and up to 10.5 days with sufficient solar exposure, while battery performance for the fēnix 6 Pro Solar in smartwatch mode is up to 14 days indoors and up to 16 days with sufficient solar exposure.
