Garmin to Postpone Wrist Temperature Feature for Future Smartwatches



Garmin Wrist Temperature – to be removed – well, not officially added

via reader: @JohnW #Kudos

Last month I reported that Wrist Temperature calibration during sleep was coming. Well, this month, I can report it’s going! as the code has been removed from all of Garmin’s public sources.

This might simply mean it’s being delayed and/or that there were problems with getting it to work on whichever Fenix/Forerunner/Venu derivative it was initially planned for.

  1. Smells like patent troubles?

    1. measure useless raw temperature at some skin location
    2. in a device that’s -omg!- connected
    3. ??? algorithm (unspecified) fixes all the measuring errors that would come with that
    4. profit

    Sounds exactly like the kind of zero effort dibs-calling patent offices are all too willing to enable

  2. Might be the same as the wrist-based ECG-like measurements with the regular optical heart rate monitors of the Fenix 6 that were rumored over a year ago and still haven’t seen the light of day in terms of implementation.
    Guess we’ll have to wait and see.
