Smartwatches and other wearables are attractive, but they all have one major drawback: battery life. Or should we say the absence of it. It’s basic physics that if you want to have good qualities you have to sacrifice longevity.
However, not all smartwatches are created equal. Physics also informs us that all the energy we need falls to Earth in the form of light. Okay, maybe not all the power, but our mighty sun can power almost anything.
But let’s get down to business! Best Buy is currently selling a unique Garmin wristwatch that can harness the power of the sun. The Garmin Fenix 6S Pro Solar is a high-end fitness gadget with a solar charging lens called Power Glass. And now it’s half the original price for a limited time!
According to the manufacturer, this lens can add up to two days of life to the already impressive 9 days of battery life. You only need to be outside for three hours a day. The Fnix 6S Pro Solar is not a one-trick pony either. This wristband accepts contactless Garmin Pay payments, has built-in GPS (with GLONASS and Galileo), smart notifications, plenty of fitness features like VO2max tracking and much more.
It’s not cheap, but the current Best Buy deal can save you an amazing $400. The 30mm stainless steel variant is on sale for a limited time for $399. Also check out our pick best android smartwatches if you fancy something different.
