Kind of late in the morning this year —
7 minutes after 6 am.
Last year it was soon after midnight.

I will NOT be up.
Way too early for I.



Days start getting shorter — and I hate that.

To I, it means Winter is on the way.

06:07 am Eastern in the USA — 10:07 am GMT.

Garmin Announces Fenix 5 Plus With Maps, Pay, Music & Galileo (GPS) etc. On June 18, 2018.

Click to ENLARGE. Text straight from Garmin.

The features are per what I gave you a heads up on 7-days ago: i.e., TOPO maps, Garmin Pay, Music & Galileo “GPS”.

One thing new is the expensive titanium cases. Lots of models. Check them out here, on the Garmin site.

It is claimed to have “blood oxygen” monitoring — and it does, BUT only in the Fenix 5X Plus. Got that. Just in the 5X Plus.

Garmin is claiming availability within the week BUT I doubt that. I will most likely UPGRADE to one, trade-in in my current Fenix 5, BUT I will probably wait till Christmas.
