Developers can use Garmin Connect IQ to develop their own apps that can be transferred to compatible Garmin fitness watches. One can imagine Connect IQ as the Android Wear App Store for Android Wear Smartwatches, only that in Connect IQ only apps for Garmin Tracker are offered.
A day or 13 ago, Garmin announced their new Forerunner 35 (FR35) GPS. But with Eurobike in full swing, I put it on the back burner a bit until the dust settled. Now that things have cleared out a bit, I figured I’d spend a few minutes to run through what’s new about Garmin’s 8th wearable launched this year.
Thus, it’s probably best to talk about the watch face first, which is configurable to a degree. There are in fact twelve watch faces you can choose from, which is notable since there are zero you can download from Garmin Connect IQ – as somehow it doesn’t support that.
My somewhat biblical in scope Garmin Fenix 5 Plus Review is now live and you will have already noticed that the Fenix 5 Plus series has hit the shelves. Like me, you are probably WOWED by the marketing and WOWED by the new features. But, like me, you are probably also WOWED by the price tag underneath the watch on that imaginary, internet-based shop shelf.
