A quick look at the Garmin Fenix 7s Pro available in Kenya

These days, wearing a fitness watch is like having a computer strapped to your wrist. Except who wants to lug all that technology around?

While it may be easy to assume that the more your watch does, the more wrist real estate it’ll take up, that’s not the case with the Garmin Fenix 7s Pro. This watch tracks everything from duathlons to daily stress levels while maintaining a slim profile.

Still on the fence? Keep reading for an in-depth review with all the details you need to figure out if this watch is for you.

What is the Garmin Fenix 7s Pro and what should Kenyans Know?

The Garmin Fenix 7s Pro is a multisport smartwatch that tracks more than 20 activity types, including running, swimming, biking, and more.

With a full-color interface and easy navigation, you can access key data at a glance. For even more detailed and personalized training stats, the Fenix integrates seamlessly with the Garmin Connect app.

Compared with its predecessor, the Fenix 5s, the 6s Pro has more memory, a longer battery life, preloaded maps, and a pulse oximeter.

Why buy garmin watches in Kenya?

You get a Garmin watch because it can access multiple satellite systems with multi-frequency positioning. In practice, this means you’ll never be standing around at the trailhead, shivering in tights and a base layer, waiting for your watch to connect to satellites so that it can properly record your run.

If you enjoy multiple outdoor sports, the Fenix 7S pro Solar has pretty much everything you need. You can set your preset activities to record every biometric under the sun, as well as sport-specific data for anything from ultrarunning to gravel biking, swim-running, and bouldering. It has the requisite outdoor navigational requirements, or the ABC—altimeter, barometer, and compass. As I’m someone who is constantly getting lost, I appreciated the ability to record ski runs and swipe down to check the preloaded trail map on SkiView .

The heart rate measurements are consistent with my previous testing. Not only that, the Fenix 7S Solar can record your blood oxygen levels, track your sleep, and calculate your Body Battery—or how much energy you have for the day. Garmin has a remarkable software suite for calculating your fitness levels in different ways.

One caveat is that Garmin Connect’s Training Status routinely records whether your workout for the day was productive, unproductive, maintaining, and so on. I do many different types of workouts on different days for different reasons, not all of which align with Garmin’s evaluation. It can be weirdly dispiriting to go on a two-hour trail run just because it’s a nice day and see that your watch has logged your workout as “unproductive.” It was productive mentally and emotionally, OK, Garmin?

Every iteration of the Fenix gets a little pricier than the last.

But if you want the best Garmin watches in Kenya has to offer, I’d stick with this Fenix. It even comes in a much beefier 7X Solar Sapphire edition, if you find yourself pining for that bigger screen.
