Garmin's new solar charging technology

Garmin uses a one-of-a-kind Power Glass solar charging panel. The company designed an ultrathin layer of tiny conductive elements on top of a glass panel. This then creates a multilayer structure that measures 0.5mm thick. This converted light into electrical energy while maintaining a high ability to absorb so that when paired with a Memory-in-Pixel display it retains clear and full-color visibility under bright sunlight.

Garmin also has the Power Manager feature that allows the user to easily toggle the watch functions according to their usage needs for the day. It deactivates unused or lesser used functions on low activity level days.

Both have Garmin Powe Glass and Powe Manager mode allowing it to remain performance-ready for weeks. It will have more on-wrist time to enjoy their activities, training features, onboard mapping, music streaming, and new modes such as Surf, Mountain Bike, and Indoor Climb.

The fēnix 6S Pro Solar has up to 9 days of battery life in smartwatch mode and up to 34 days in Battery Saver mode. The fēnix 6 Pro Solar has up to 14 days of smartwatch mode and 48 days of Battery Saver mode.
