Finally a competitor to Garmin!


Garmin does have competition in the space. The whole wearable fitness and training tech spaces is experiencing HUGE growth.

To add to the rumor mill, I've heard that Polar - really the original brand, and creator of the space, has some new product that will be launching sometime before the fall.

I’m curious what the price point will be.

Garmin 735 is currently $349 and the 935 is 499. Neither of those watches are new, and no one would be surprised if Garmin came out with new models which added music, Garmin Pay, etc.

My guess is they undercut Garmin at $279-299.

That would be nice. Not sure I’m their market as I’m happy with my 920xt but obviously others would be interested.

If you’re doing multi stage events, or 100 mi events then yes.

If you’re an IM person, dialed into the sport at a competitive level then 14 hrs is more than enough.

It’s pretty much the Garmin 735. If you’re only doing 1/2s it’s great.

It's good enough for Ironman too. Unless you need 14 hours.

Quit worrying about battery life and let's wait and see what features it has.

The change in what the buttons do will for sure throw me for a loop, is that something they had to change?

I've really hoped they would announce it in the days before Ironman Hawaii – in their request for dismissal the've stated on of the reasons is "delay to align with seasonal event schedule".

At this point they might as well announce the Rival 2. It’s been a year since this thing first surfaced.

Dan spoke to them at Interbike and they said they weren't building a watch unless they could do it right, some I'm guessing it's on the drawing board now.

:( That's a shame to hear. I was looking forward to it. What I really like about the Elemnt is the pairing with the Elemnt App - easy setup of the unit from the app, live tracking and the automatic workout transfer to Strava, Komoot, TrainingPeaks etc.
