This is BIG. Garmin ticks off another box on the ‘smartwatch‘ checklist — cellular connectivity. For now it is limited to Verizon and the Vivoactive 3M. But, we know it will soon be extended to include the Fenix 5 Plus and the Forerunner 645M and more cellular carriers.

Some of you are going to LOVE this especially if you have Verizon.

The two-way texting could be neat though not sure how practical it will be.

Those safety features could prove to be the main catch. I go running in some remote places without a phone and it would be nice to know that, if needed, I could get help using my watch.

But, from what I see, the initial push is for music download and I am skeptical about that. But, maybe Garmin got enough requests.

It is kind of pre-announced at CES 2019. Not going to be available for 8-weeks (i.e., two more months) and it is interesting that Garmin is not quoting a price on its Website. I checked around. Pricing has not been determined as yet.

I will, of course, keep you posted. Stay tuned (and you don’t need Verizon LTE for that).
