A new Garmin hybrid smartwatch has leaked online, and it seems we’ll be seeing a brand-new addition in the near future.
German tech site WinFuture has revealed images and details of the all-new Garmin Vivomove Trend, which is an update to the company’s hybrid line-up.
It doesn’t seem like a radical overhaul, but it seems to be geared toward women, with a smaller case size and attractive colorways. It’s also rumored to have a $300 price tag – so it won’t come cheap and be priced above the likes of the Apple Watch SE.
The Vivomove Trend is a hybrid smartwatch, which means that it uses physical hands – and hides the tech inside. That means it passes off as a ‘proper’ analog watch, rather than a piece of tech.
The Vivomove Trend features a 40mm case with no physical buttons, so it looks like there will be a touchscreen control.
Like most modern hybrids, the Trend features an LCD panel (346 x 254 pixels) digital display behind the hands, which shows off stats and information from your paired smartphone. This display turns off when it’s not in use, so it doesn’t ruin the analog allure.
We gave glowing reviews to the Vivomove Style and Sport devices – so the Trend should offer an excellent fitness tracking experience.
It will feature Garmin’s heart rate tracking, stress detection, body battery and workout tracking via Connected GPS.
It’s also expected to deliver NFC and Garmin Pay, as well as a week of battery life between charges.
We’ll be keeping tabs on its proper release, which could happen this week – and update this article with confirmation of its specs and features.
