A treasure trove of leaked images shows what Garmin’s upcoming 2022 line of smartwatches will look like. A report from the German tech site Winfuture shows the alleged images of the Garmin Fenix 7 series, Venu 2 Plus, Epix Gen2 and Instinct 2 smartwatches.
The post shows that the Fenix 7 series can consist of three models: the standard Fenix 7, 7S, and 7X, all of which are rumored to be made from reinforced plastic and stainless steel. At least one model will carry the high-end Fenix 6’s built-in solar panel that charges the device as you use it, while others will include the familiar tracking features. It appears that the base model will only come in black, while the Fenix 7S may have an all-white variation, as well as an option that has a rose gold frame with an off-white band. Winfuture does not provide any additional details on the rumored 7X.
Also included in the publication is Epix Gen2. Garmin originally debuted the Epix smartwatch in 2015, and unlike its predecessor, leaked images show the Epix Gen2 swapping a square watch face for a round one. The Epix Gen2 appears to have a built-in GPS like the original, along with new features in the Epix line of watches, including a blood oxygen sensor, a heart rate monitor, and sleep tracking capabilities.
Images of the Instinct 2 and 2S show that the watches may have retained the same rugged look that the original Instinct had when it was first released in 2018. Winfuture claims the watches use an e-ink display that allows the device to conserve battery life, and it also comes with features that record your heart rate, steps, and sleep. The white variation of the basic Instinct smartwatch appears to have a built-in solar panel. However, it is not clear what the differences are between the 2 and the 2S, but it is possible that the 2S is the smaller of the two. The same can be said for the Fenix 7 and 7S, considering that the previously released Fenix 6S and Fenix 5S models have smaller screens.
Finally, Winfuture shows us more of what the Venu 2 Plus appears to be. Leaked images of this smart watch They’ve already been floating around the internet, and the images here only corroborate what the initial leak shows. The device is rumored to have black and white variations, plus it comes with an OLED screen. It also appears to have an additional third button that the standard Venu 2 doesn’t have, but it’s unclear what it’s for.
We may not have to wait much longer for Garmin to officially announce the lineup. With CES 2022 just a few weeks away, Garmin may make the big reveal at the event. For now, you can see all the leaked images at Winfuturesite of.
