Default Garmin's new smart watch

It was earlier today that Fitbit unveiled their first real smartwatch, the Fitbit Ionic. It’s chock full of hardware/software features (and an equally high price to tag to match) but the biggest thing holding the watch back was its god-awful design. It’s nowhere near fashionable thanks to a big, clunky design that looks more masculine than anything.

If the Apple Watch wasn’t already competition enough, Fitbit is about to face some pretty stiff competition, from Garmin no less who’s upcoming smartwatch is already looking leaps and bounds better than the Ionic. With a more traditional timepiece look, the Garmin Vivomove HR has been leaked in a pair of press renders showing off the wearable from the front and back.
There’s still no details on the exact hardware/fitness features, but the watch is said to be announced at IFA 2017 alongside the Vivoactive 3, a fitness centered smartwatch that could retail for around $250. It’s looking like the Vivomove HR could cost a little higher than that, but we’ll have to wait and see exactly how much once they’re both made official later this week.

Never would have considered this until Android fucked up wear with their 2.0.

My buddy helps design these watches. I'll have to see if he can clue me in more.

Yeah my buddy said his lips are sealed. I need to see if I can pry them open with beer.

I'm glad android wear is coming back, and from companies that have something to prove. This may be a contender for the next watch I want to pick up. Since the LG sport got killed by verizon, and the Wear24 is unable to be seen in person, and all other's don't justify their price tag, I've been very disappointed since my Moto360 1st gen died after 3 years. It looks like I might be able to get into a smart watch again without feeling like I want to return it before I actually purchase it.

This watch isn't android wear and thank God for that. Android Wear 1.0 and 1.5 was great, I liked them both. Then they introduced 2.0 and I fucking hate it. It's slow, buggy, apps don't load to the watch automatically anymore...it blows ass. I completely quit using my G Watch R thanks to 2.0.

I just hope it's functional, and has a decent battery life.
