Garmin Epix 2 Pro
Excitement for 2023 as we have an updated Garmin Epix 2 PRO inbound.
I’ve included the leaked specs further below but more details are coming in as I write. Other than the inevitable price, size, weight and battery subtleties, the essential differences to the Epix 2 are twofold. Firstly there are (more) premium material options and secondly, the watch will be available in Garmin’s usual 3 sizes rather than just the one size we had before.
Remember that the base level Epix 2 did not have multi-constellation and dual-band GNSS/GPS reception, just the former. All 3 of the new Epix 2 Pro models will get the full monty of GNSS awesomeness.
Also remember that the recent Forerunner 965 featured a 454x454px display size in the medium-sized case. I’m not sure of the correctness of the leaked specs but it would be reasonable to hope that Epix 2 Pro crams a larger physical display into each of the 3 ‘standard’ case sizes and that will be a big deal for the biggest-sized Epix 2 Pro.
There will inevitably also be a brand new headline feature plus a degree of catch-up that will update the Epix 2 with any existing features that are missing, such as those on the Forerunner 965 and Edge 540. ie Training Load Ratio feature, Chronic Training Load, built-in Running Dynamics without a sensor, full Physio TrueUp 2.0 and Unified Training Status, and perhaps ClimbPro Free-Ride.
ECG is a vague possibility but I wouldn’t hold your breath. QI is reasonably likely and the specs below show a dock option which might be linked to QI. A flashlight might also appear on the larger model.
The existing base price for Epix 2 is €900, rising to €1100 for the titanium/sapphire version.
|Garmin Epix Pro Gen 2||51 mm||€ 1,150.00|
|Garmin Epix Pro Gen 2||47 mm||€ 1,050.00|
|Garmin Epix Pro Gen 2||42 mm||€ 950.00|
The release timeframe is unknown but I would expect mid-May or Mid-June.
The information and imagery leaked so far are from online retailers and are not 100% trustworthy.
Do NOT expect Epix 2 Pro to be the next generation beyond Fenix 7. At its heart, it’s still the Fenix 7 AMOLED version…now in all sizes
