Yeah it was pushed back
If true that's a huge bummer. Seems like they shot themselves in the foot with the stupid climb thing, wasting resources on what I predict will ultimately be a loser for them and pushing back what has the potential to be a big winner for them if they make a watch that's as good as their elemnt line. I know there's a tone of people using the elemnt who are chomping at the bit to leave their bug ridden Garmin watches behind.
I've got a Garmin FR220 that will no longer connect to my computers, and Garmin has no clue why. Their support has basically stopped at "try a different USB port". I'm learning towards a Polar M430.
A trainer company making GPS watches? Extending yourself outside of your wheelhouse? What can go wrong...
Wahoo Bolt has a bike gps that is better than anything in the Garmin Edge series...
^^^^what he said...love my Bolt. Iâ€™ll buy a watch if it comes.
There already is, i had the opportunity to train with the Coros Pace watch for a week. â‚¬ 299 and is like a garmin 935 plus. Longer battery, better wrist hrm, cadence on screen while running. It was just plain very, very good in the functions i tested.

Had to pull resources from a watch with a very large potential market to release a stupid trainer accessory that will likely not be supported or sold within a couple years. A bad business decision. They're definitely going to lost a good amount of users dissatisfied with Garmin to other entrants like maybe Coros.
They had two things they were trying to work on: Climb and this watch. Their largest markets are in the northern hemisphere so it's more important to have a multisport watch released in time to catch the training and racing season in spring and summer and then do the trainer accessory in the fall for indoor trainer season. Yet they chose to take the opposite approach. Seems really perplexing. Now they'll release two products off cycle.

They have somewhere around 100 employees. And yes, even in large business resource allocation matters. Which project gets the best engineers? Even more so at a small private company like wahoo.
I have a Suunto Spartan Ultra which I think has now had about as many improvements as itâ€™s going to get, and which is frankly enormous when swimming. The Wahoo watch will be pretty good, I suspect.
