OK Fellow Sports Gadget Nerds it’s now or never.

The next 4-6 weeks are the window of opportunity for the likes of Polar, Garmin, et al to come up with the goods before we all go on holiday – aka ‘training somewhere else’.

July and August will probably have nothing exciting released. September and October and maybe even November might see some pre-Xmas goodies.


The next 6 Weeks – starting THIS week.

All these are guesses. I have no inside knowledge.

  • Garmin – A  Swim 2!! Yes !! or maybe an Edge 820. 925XT-optical or 930XT would be nice….
  • TomTom – Multisport-SPARK. Why not?
  • Fitbit Lightning – I invented the name: but a super new better hardwared version of the Surge-cum-Blaze. Properly taking on the large markets for the M400 and RUNNER2. Bring it on!
  • Polar M400+optical – Why not? A360 optical hardware logic to a best selling watch.
  • Samsung/Apple/etc…yawn.
  • Fenix 4…nah !

Just for the info:
Garmin is releasing 2 near identical watches (very) very soon.
Both do NOT have optical HR.
Both are similair to the Swim (1).
Both are round.
I can assume one of them is the swim 2 (they are both swim proof) but i can’t see huge differences between the two to justify 2 products.
I assume it’s something like the difference in the current Edge 25 and Edge 20.
