Get a first look at the Garmin Vivomove Trend with these leaked images

A bunch of high-res images have been published on German site WinFuture. These provide the first glimpse of Garmin Vivomove Trend – a hybrid watch that is expected to launch any day now.

It is no secret that the next model in the Vivomove range is in the works. In fact, we broke the story almost a year ago. The device was listed on the website of a local Garmin authorised distributor along with a bunch of other models. Most of those have seen the light of day since then.

Vivomove Trend was spotted on a few regulatory websites in recent months. The most recent appearance was at IMDA – the regulatory body in Singapore. This follows a similar filing by the FCC. But not much was known about it as far as actual design or specs.

The Vivomove range consists of a number of hybrid devices. This includes vivomove Luxe, vivomove Style and vivomove sport. You can also pick up some older pieces in the line, such as vivomove HR, on certain retail websites.

The naming convention suggested to us that this is a stylish timepiece, perhaps something designed for women. It turns out we weren’t too far off the mark.


Garmin Vivomove Trend – leaked images

Feast your eyes on the images below (all hosted on winfuture.de).

There are a few colour options, the Black that you see in the pics above, Cream/Peach Gold and French Grey/Gold. All of these have a glass-fibre reinforced polycarbonate case. No physical buttons are visible on the device so presumably you are able to interact with it via the touchscreen display.

The screen is an LCD panel (346 x 254 pixels) and there’s a pair of physical watch hands on top of it. The panel is only activated when a user interacts with it.

You are able to see notifications from a connected smartphone and information on incoming calls. When a notification comes through, the hands move out of the way so that you can read the message. The watch comes with the standard staple of Garmin fitness smarts, including blood oxygen tracking. No built in GPS, though. Only Connected GPS.

It also has female health tracking and a safety function which sends an automated SOS message to designated contacts when an accident is detected. Other features include Garmin Pay and a runtime of around five days between charges. Refuelling is done via a QI-compatible wireless charger.

The back of the watch shows a 40mm diameter size. We are not sure if there is another size option that will be available. Water-resistance is rated as 5 ATM.

Expect Vivomove Trend to officially land in the days ahead. If not this week, next Tuesday seems like a realistic possibility.

Garmin is also gearing up to release a few more high-end smartwatches. Rumour has it that these will be Garmin Forerunner 265, 265 Music and 965. The new watches will be pretty much the same as their predecessors, but with the inclusion of an AMOLED display.
