Furthermore, the image shows the smartwatch will have a new feature called the ‘Solar Intensity’, which probably means it can show users how hot the temperature is outside. This is a new feature that we haven’t seen on any smartwatches recently.

The new Garmin smartwatch will be targeted at runners, as evident from the runner’s pitch in the teaser image. It will have solar charging tech that will absorb sunlight to charge the watch. Besides these, we can speculate it will have improved fitness and running features. That’s pretty much everything we could gather about the smartwatch at the moment but since the brand has started teasing its features, but we can speculate the launch could be inching close and more details should be revealed pretty soon.

As for the price, Garmin smartwatches are usually on the premium side. Garmin will attract a niche audience, especially those who are into sports. The company has models that compete with Apple, but the data tracking is particularly better than some budget alternatives.
