Looks like Garmin have been cooking something up and are almost ready to launch.
It also has NFC (Wrist payment) and Bluetooth as expected. It doesn’t seem to have Ant+ transmission so possibly doesn’t have wrist HR.
It has a round watch face.
It has a different menu structure than a Fenix, the FCC notice is at settings, sysem, about rather than settings, about.
If I had to guess (and this blog kinda means I do) I’d say this is a WearOS device rather than a pure training device judging on the current evidence. Either way, it’s great to see Garmin experimenting with LTE on the wrist. This device could live in various families at Garmin, including golf, outdoors, fitness, aviation, marine. I’m going to rule out the specialist marine and aviation markets – LTE just isn’t useful there specifically. That leaves fitness (no Ant+ retransmission of HR?), Outdoors (LTE would kill the battery mid-hike) and golf. I just don’t see a golf specific watch needing these features so a new category of pure smart watch seems most likely.
Exciting to see something so different.
