Major leak reveals Garmin’s new Venu, Epix, Fenix, and Instinct series smartwatches

0 39

Garmin unveiled the Venu 2 and Venu 2S smartwatches in April, and we know a Plus variant exists since we saw its leaked image last month revealing the design, color options, and a few features. Now a major leak by WinFuture reveals Garmin is planning to introduce more than one smartwatch since the publication posted over three dozen official-looking images of the Epix Gen2, Fenix 7, Fenix 7S, Instinct 2, and Instinct 2S, in addition to the Venu 2 Plus we’ve already seen.

Garmin Epix Gen2

The Garmin Epix Gen2 will have an in-built GPS like the original Epix and come with an altimeter and the standard set of health and fitness features, including heart rate monitoring, sleep tracking, and blood oxygen saturation monitoring.

The Epix Gen2 is made of fiberglass-reinforced polycarbonate and 316L stainless steel. It’s MIL-STD-810 certified and is water-resistant up to 100 meters.

The leaked images reveal the smartwatch has a total of five buttons – three on the left and two on the right, flanking two holes, which could be for speakers or microphone or both.

Garmin Fenix 7, Fenix 7S, and Fenix 7X

The Fenix 7 series includes the vanilla, S, and X models. All of them come with the usual health and fitness features. They are made of 316L stainless steel, and some variants will come integrated with solar panels to charge the battery when you are under the sun.

We don’t know what the Fenix 7X will look like, but the pictures of the vanilla 7 and 7S shared by the publication tell us the former will arrive in the 47mm size and the latter in 42mm. Both are water-resistant up to 100 meters and MIL-STD-810 rated.

However, while the Fenix 7 and the rest of the 7S color models have “Power Glass” ingrained on their back covers, the white version of the 7S has “Fiber-Reinforced Polymer” written, suggesting different builds.

That said, like the Epix Gen2, the Fenix 7 and Fenix 7S also have a total of five buttons each with what appear to be speaker grilles on the right side.

Garmin Instinct 2 and Instinct 2S

The Instinct 2 and Instinct 2S feature in-built GPS and come with heart rate monitoring, step counter, and sleep counter in addition to other activity tracking features. However, both smartwatches pack e-ink displays for longer battery life between the charges.

The Garmin Instinct 2 also has MIL-STD-810 certification, and its grey-ish color model packs a solar panel so that its battery can be charged when under the sun.

Garmin Venu 2 Plus

The Garmin Venu 2 Plus’ screen tells us it will feature a step counter and heart rate monitor. However, the rear side of the smartwatch reveals even more features, including 50-meter water resistance and in-built GPS/multi-GNSS, allowing smartphone-independent route tracking.

The smartwatch’s display is covered with Gorilla Glass, and the watch body is made of stainless steel. This particular model we are looking at is the 43mm version, and it remains to be seen if there will be a smaller/bigger variant on offer.

The Garmin Venu 2 Plus’ back cover also has “Music” ingrained, suggesting it will have onboard storage for offline music playback. We also see a hole next to that text, which could be a microphone.

You can also see that the Venu 2 Plus’ strap has Quick Release 20 printed on it, meaning it’s 20mm wide and can be removed/replaced easily by the users.

In addition to these seven smartwatches, Garmin is planning to announce the new color models of the Vivomove 3, Vivomove Sport, and Approach S12. It’s unclear when exactly the US-based company will unveil these smartwatches, but since the official renders are already out, it shouldn’t be too long before Garmin introduces these wearables.
