Ideally you would like Google to partner with Garmin (and I do happen to be a long-term Garmin shareholder). My druthers, however, tell me that this is unlikely. I can’t explain it, just a feeling. I just hope that Google doesn’t cut a deal with the ‘DEVIL’ — a.k.a. Fitbit. {Smile}

But, I have been thinking. Google, for obvious reasons, would prefer to work with a manufacturer who is currently using ITS ‘Google Wear OS‘ and has experience with Qualcomm SNAPDRAGON processors. ‘Misfit‘ fits the bill quite nicely — and they do make some impressive watches.

I, of course, can’t be sure, but Misfit is worth keeping on the radar.

I did look at the Misfit Vapor when considering an alternative to the Garmin Vivoactive 3 that died. It just didn’t have all of the fitness/sleep tracking features I was looking for. But they — especially with Google’s resources — could fix that.

Scary — for Garmin!

Google for more!


This obviously is not good news for Garmin IF it comes to pass — the rumors are that it will indeed be a reality by Christmas 2018.

Shame that Google did NOT approach Garmin and do it as a collaboration. Better still they should have just bought out Garmin lock-stock-and-barrel — and I say that as a long term Garmin shareholder.

This is just a heads up.

I will keep you posted. OK?
