Like the ‘Amazfit Verge‘, which I am currently evaluating, this is another impressive Chinese GPS smart-watch with a compelling AMOLED display. It is not Huawei’s foray into smart-watches but it is by far the most feature rich, in that it includes: GPS/GLONASS/Galileo, continuous heart-rate, VO2 max, sleep monitoring etc.

That it is currently not officially available in North America is rather frustrating. Yes, there are folks selling it in the U.S. — and it is available on eBay — but there is no U.S. warranty and Huawei is very explicit that it is not available in the U.S.

From the specs., I think it is more capable than the Amazfit ‘Verge’. But, the ‘Verge’ is now available in the U.S., even from Amazon, whereas the ‘Watch GT’ is not. That is a shame.

ECG Sensor On The ‘Apple Watch 4’ Is HUGE — A Total Game Changer, Leaves Garmin Gasping ….

I am in shock and awe. Wow. Wow. WOW!

An EKG (or ECG) on my wrist that I can take. Wow. Wow. WOW!

I, alas, given my dicky heart, have had more EKGs than most. Now, I could get a first read before they tell me the bad news.

THIS IS HUGE.

I am at a loss. My Garmin Fenix 5, nor the new Garmin Fenix 5 Plus, are even in the same ballpark! Check the specs. The Apple Watch has the same sensors with better capability — even with GPS, GLONASS, Galileo etc.

Not sure how Garmin can or will respond.

THIS IS HUGE.

Garmin Fenix 5: Beta Firmware Ver. 9.53 Adds GALILEO ‘GPS’ Support — And That Is BIG.

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE. From ‘Garmin Forums’ at: forums.garmin.com


Just announced today. Pretty significant in that Garmin now offers Galileo ‘GPS’ on the just released Fenix 5 Plus family.

Though I have not experienced it myself (or more to the point know any better) a LOT of people have been complaining about GPS issues with the Fenix 5 — though mainly when trying to get GPS in cities with a lot of skyscrapers blocking the signals. Galileo is said to have a ‘stronger’ more ‘penetrative’ signal. Hence the excitement.

But, remember this is a brand new BETA and Garmin just rolled out Firmware 9.20 just this week. So tread with caution. I thought about it and decided that I will wait. {Smile}.

Well, I wanted to make sure that I shared this with YOU.
