Must Read: Garmin Fenix 7 PRO Review & Where to buy
So here we have an image of a Garmin Fenix 7 supplied by @A which is claimed to be a Garmin Fenix 7 PRO but which is probably a Fenix 7 if you check the writing on the circular black bezel area. Apologies for the pixelated areas of the image which hide information that might identify the person who sent me the image.
Anyway, what is more, interesting is the image on the screen which the image owner claims shows a collaboration between Microsoft (Bing) and Garmin with an AI watch face
What The Leak Claims
How Could This Be AI on a Fenix
It’s highly unlikely that Fenix 7 (7 PRO) could run an AI like ChatGPT (Microsoft Bing) or Bard. If the image is authentic, it is more likely that there is an interaction between Bing on your smartphone and the Garmin Connect ecosystem. Specifically, the latter would link a Microsoft account to the Connect app and then provide dynamic insights pushed to a Microsoft-designed CIQ watch face via Bluetooth. That is what might be shown above.
In this scenario, Bing might be aware of the user’s inclination towards festivals from search history and suggest new, related content by sending a link to the watch face. Tapping the watch face could potentially reveal more details, but I expect that the more substantial information would be on the smartphone.
This story about the Fenix is given a tad more credibility by a related leak of a new Microsoft app for the Apple Watch. Although that app and anything to do with Bing in the Garmin CIQ ecosystem will be totally unrelated from a technical perspective, they probably could both be a product of the same commercial push by Microsoft to increase its presence on multiple platforms.
