A retailer has unintentionally leaked a protracted listing of upcoming Garmin watches, together with some names we have been anticipating – and some that we weren’t.
Gadgets and Wearables says it obtained the listing from “a certified Garmin supplier”, and says it contains the names of all of the units the supplier might be promoting over the following few months, along with their guarantee durations.
We weren’t shocked to see the Garmin Forerunner 955 among the many names within the leaked listing. This might be a successor to 2019’s Forerunner 945, and we have already seen a number of hints that it is near launch.
In January this yr, a listing for a Garmin Forerunner 955 LTE Bundle briefly appeared on the corporate’s Australian net retailer, and in April a Swedish on-line retailer prematurely revealed a web page advertising a solar edition of the watch.
The listing secured by Devices and Wearables does not listing LTE or photo voltaic variations of the Forerunner 955, but it surely does not point out any of the Garmin Instinct 2‘s varied particular editions both, so we would not learn something into that.
Operating, style, and extra
One watch that we’re slightly extra shocked to see is the Garmin Forerunner 255. We have beforehand speculated that the mid-range Garmin 200 series might no longer have a place on runners’ wrists, because the entry-level Forerunner 55 is so succesful, but it surely appears like we might have written it off prematurely. The listing additionally mentions a Garmin Forerunner 255 S, which might be the identical watch with a smaller case.
It’s going to be attention-grabbing to see what new options Garmin is ready to add to reinforce the 255, however we have our fingers crossed for the real-time stamina rating from the Fenix 7 that helps you handle your effort throughout a run so you do not go too onerous, or slack off.
One other new machine on the listing is the Garmin Venu Sq 2. The unique Garmin Venu Sq launched in September 2020, and whereas it was a sexy watch, its lack of an AMOLED show meant we did not discover it fairly interesting as the unique Venu.
We’re hoping its successor may have the brilliant, daring display that made the Venu and Venu 2 actually shine – and maybe some new coaching insights as properly. Stats corresponding to coaching load are sensible whenever you’re making an attempt to strike the suitable stability of labor and relaxation, and we might actually respect that additional knowledge.
Probably the most attention-grabbing units on the listing is the Garmin Intuition Analog. There are already Intuition watches specifically designed for browsing, tactical use, esports, and even trucking, however that is one thing new.
It would not be Garmin’s first analog timepiece – watches within the Vivomove line have hybrid faces with bodily palms that transfer out of the best way to disclose a hidden digital show beneath, and the Intuition Analog may work the identical means. By way of appears, nonetheless, it may need extra in widespread with a dive watch – maybe even with a rotating bezel.
In reality, it appears like a brand new Vivomove is on the playing cards, too. The Vivomove Pattern would sit alongside watches just like the Vivomove Sport, which launched in January 2022. The Vivomove Sport was basically the identical watch because the Vivomove 3 with a selection of recent pastel colours, and it is probably that the Pattern might be very related.
We will solely guess at what the aesthetic variations might be, however we would not be shocked if the Pattern options some zesty new unisex shade choices just like the Lime Inexperienced, Seafoam Blue, and Poppy Crimson of the lately launched Intuition 2.
Lastly, there’s the large thriller – the Garmin Austin. This is not a reputation we’re in any respect conversant in, and it may be a codename for a secret new launch. As Devices and Wearables observes, it is listed as an ‘journey watch’, so maybe it will likely be a brand new premium rugged watch that is someplace between the Garmin Fenix 7 and Epix (Gen 2).
In fact, there is no assure that each one of those watches will finally discover their means onto wearers’ wrists, however we’re cautiously optimistic in regards to the majority. We’ll preserve our ear to the bottom for extra information and rumors, and preserve you up to date as quickly as we hear extra.
