Garmin’s next new watch
We have a picture of Garmin’s most likely next watch which is the Mk2s diving watch.
The Garmin MK2 and MK2i were released in October 2020 and the MK2 has a case size of 52mm (Fenix 6X is 51mm)
What we are seeing here is the ‘s’ or small version of the MK2 with a case size 1mm or so bigger than the Fenix 6s. The 6s has a case size of 42mm and you can see from the image that this is probably a tad bigger than that.
Clearly, the specs will be modified from the MK2 in areas like battery life, simply because the case is smaller.
Other interesting things to watch out for
- It was possible that the Enduro had new battery tech that delivered its awesome battery life (as well a larger battery and a more energy-efficient motherboard via @BR). *IF* that is the case then the MK2s might, just might, have a slightly better battery life than we would expect – I don’t think so
- The MK2s could also be a test-bed for a smaller version of the energy-efficient motherboard. Again this is doubtful because of the possibility of death when diving…no risks can be taken. This is partly why the Descent comes as the last variant of the Fenix line.
- The unlikely introduction of the new Sony GNSS chip on this watch (we WILL see it later this year though)
