Subject: New Garmin products - any ideas on release dates?
Hi folks,

So I'm looking to maybe buy a Garmin Swim. BUT! I know it's a few years old already, and I'd rather wait a few months to get the new model than get the old one now.

So my question is - does anyone know Garmin's product release cycle? (Apple is somewhat consistent and fans have known for a few years when new Apple products will come out). So does Garmin have anything in the pipeline to be released soon? Any ideas?

I'm not sure, but for any sports tech questions, I always go to this site, which many consider the best spot on the 'net for such info:

If the Garmin Swim fits all your needs, why worry if something new is in the pipeline?

Well if a new Swim is in the pipeline, I'l wait a month or two and then order the new one. If it's 12+ months away, I'll just order the "old" version now.

the swim was released last year. at most the device will get automatic software upgrades/patches.  I believe based on the new product rotations that the 910 is up for an overhaul sometime later this year.  sometimes Garmin hypes up new device releases, and sometimes they just release it along with a press announcement.  multisport/fitness isn't really where they make their money, so there isn't always a clear path forward or release date given for new products.  Like the Edge1000, I think that came out of nowhere and left a lot of people wondering why they even bothered making it.  Garmin actually brings in more revenue through hiking/hunting/golfing devices that all of their fitness devices.
