Garmin Descent MK2S Announced

The Garmin Descent MK2s has just been formally announced although its details were leaked several months ago.

This may well be the last of the Fenix 6 line as yet another model is eked out of the Fenix 6 feature-stable. Interestingly it has the old ELEVATE Gen 3 optical HR sensor and not the new sensor from the Venu 2 last month.  Perhaps the Fenix 7 will be soon? Maybe but I’ve had 3 rumours now suggesting that the planned summer 2021 launch has now changed to 2022. Ouch.

Garmin Descent MK2S

The Descent is a dive watch and the MK2S is the small format version of the MK2. There is also an MK2i model which boasts additional Air Integration abilities with the Descent T1 air pressure transmitter. There is no air integration model for the MK2S. Most non-dive features are the same as comparable models from the rest of the Fenix 6S series.

The size is NOT quite the same as the Fenix 6S, presumably, a little extra work was needed on the case to ensure its suitability for deep dives.

With a price tag of around $1000/£1000, this is one of the more expensive Fenix models.

2022 for the Fenix 7??? That’s sad! Can we still hope that at least the 955 will be launched this year?

After Garmin acquired Firstbeat and very weak Polar hardware updates (and announcement of even weaker software updates comming) no competition left in the sports watch market. No competition means no innovations and no new models. The only hope is Coros, at this time it is the only company which could challenge Garmin domination in the market.

Macvos

And Apple if they improve battery life, add buttons and further develop sports apps. The sensors are already comparable or slightly better.
