What will Garmin announce at CES 2017?

Garmin Fenix 5xEdit: (here) are the actual F5X specs and a commentary and comparison. The F5 is now on Garmin’s USA and German websites. And I guess the strict answer to what Garmin will announce at CES is “Nothing”…it was all announced just before 🙂

The Fenix 3 was announced in Jan 2015 and the 3HR in January 2016 but don’t expect the Fenix 5 this week. Last years leaks could mean they re-jig the release schedule either way ie bringing it forward to CES or postponing it from CES and instead announcing a lesser product.

The sensible money WILL be on a new FENIX. Let’s hope so…

If you are new to this site then these recent posts will cover some interesting Garmin speculation

Edit: It looks like there are some fenix 5 leaks. So it now seems 99% sure that there will be a F5 announcement imminently…

I’m not following what you’re saying here, they are delaying release due to the leaks?

could go either way.

Still not following, are you saying you are hearing that or just purely speculating? Everything I’ve heard/read/seen through other leaks has indicated they are definitely being announced this week (definitely not shipping any time soon though).

Wish I hadn’t posted it now 🙂 I was hoping for some answers 😉 I heard a totally unsubstantiated rumour that the fenix5 announcement was pulled in favour of a lesser product. but, as I say, unsubstantiated.

Guess this speculation was a little wrong 😉

The 5k Runner: “Don’t expect the Fenix 5 this week”
Garmin: “Here’s 3 versions of the Fenix 5 with 15 total different watch/band/bundle combinations”

yep. I try to speculate both ways to help you guys form your own opinions. We’ve known about all the variations for well over 2 months. it was just a case of ‘when’
