Garmin Vivoactive 4 leaks out alongside new Vivomove range

There's a whole bunch of new Garmin watches on the way

Garmin looks set to launch six new watches bringing additions to its Vivoactive and Vivomove ranges along with a new watch we've not yet seen before.

That's according to a pretty major leak courtesy of the folks at Winfuture.de who appear to have come across pictures and some details of all of the watches.

First up, is the Vivoactive 4, successor to the Vivoactive 3, which will measure in with a 44mm watch body. There it also looks to be a Vivoactive 4s measuring in with a smaller 40mm case mirroring a trend that Garmin seems to have started with its Forerunner 45 and 45s running watches.

Based on the watch screens, it seems we can can expect music features like we've seen previously on the Vivoactive and it looks like there could be some new animated workout features based on the man in the press-up position on one of those faces.

The images also suggest some design tweaks as well, with the touchscreen bezel looking a little less pronounced compared to previous models. Garmin's Vivoactive range is considered its most smartwatch-like device, so it'll be interesting to see what it offers on that front along with its sports tracking features.

Garmin's Vivomove hybrid smartwatch has been long due an update, and it looks like we are finally going to get a big one in 2019. The image above apparently shows off the Vivomove Style, Vivomove 3 Sport and the Vivomove 3s.

The Vivomove Style (far right) looks to feature a color display in combination with a set of classic analog hands, though it could well just be a full touchscreen display. It's not entirely clear. It will apparently offer activity tracking and heart rate monitoring.

The Vivomove 3 Sport (middle) and the Vivomove 3s (on the left) seem to be designed more like the current Vivomove HR offering a discreet digital display baked into the bottom of the watch face that only appears when you need to review your fitness tracking and health data.

Based on the resting heart rate data screen on the 3s, it's safe to assume heart rate monitors will be in tow on these models too. The 3s will be the smallest of the new Vivomove hybrid smartwatches.

Garmin Venu

Last up is something that looks entirely new from Garmin. The Venu features a 43mm case design and looks a bit like a more luxurious version of the Vivoactive with that more pronounced bezel. It seems we can expect the usual mix of smartwatch, sports watch and fitness tracker features here too.

There's no details on pricing or release dates, though we do know Garmin has a press conference planned for IFA 2019. The Berlin tech show takes place in just a few weeks' time, so we won't have to wait too long to see if these leaks are spot on.

    I got to have this new vivoactive! I have Vivoactive 3 music, it's nice but there are many missing features, such as enabling it to work separately from my phone... Also, I'm looking for a smartwatch that works with LTE 450 mhz, I think it has the best battery performance.
