Well, there is the second round screened watch we predicted last week. Garmin released the 735XT today, a triathlon focussed watch in the same oHR body as the 235 running watch.
Well this is a little interesting. Suunto are asking for feedback on Facebook (quoted below). The interesting part is that if you remove the line about diving we could almost be talking about an Ambit 4 which would feature a depth guage and watersports (SUP?). If that’s the case then they’ve hit the one limitation… Read Article →

He also implied that he has one for testing in a reply to comments. I wouldn’t expect a Fenix 4 at this point but we are expecting a 920XT replacement… Read Article →
OK so I was wrong about the Garmin. Again. However, Polar have been teasing about the Boston Marathon and have a big update for v800 GoPro integration coming. DCRainmaker also teased about a Polar update coming tomorrow in his weekly update at http://www.dcrainmaker.com/2016/04/week-in-reviewapril-18th-2016.html
It looks like an update to the Tactix range will also Debut at CES This year. Based on Fenix 3 hardware but with added military functionality like the original Tactix. I give you, the Tactix Bravo…
Well, time for me to eat some humble pie! Looks like there will be a Fenix 3 HR appearing at CES 2016 after all. Thanks to reader Sam for the heads up. The image name clearly says Fenix 3 HR so I still don’t expect a Fenix 4 folks.

Recommendation: Buy History Product Announced Available Swim Jun 25, 2012 Jul 5, 2012 Swim 2 Never? Notes OK, so this little unloved product is well overdue an update. It doesn’t support the swimming HR straps, doesn’t have GPS, doesn’t do bluetooth uploads, doesn’t have ConnectIQ. Unfortunately, swimmers don’t tend to need this kind of training… Read Article →
