Garmin has just released two new smart adventure watches, the Epix Pro and Fenix 7 Pro. Whilst the Fenix and Epix were already in the Garmin smartwatch range, both models have been given the 'Pro' treatment, meaning iterative improvement, rather than a full-blown overhaul. 

This means both models get a range of hardware and software updates as well as new features which should mean they compete with the best cycling watches. The Epix Pro remains the range-topper (and most expensive) and in Garmin's words "the ultimate high-performance smartwatch." The Fenix 7 Pro focuses on delivering excellent battery life, partly thanks to solar charging functions and delivers a range of training tools.
