Garmin is normally a big presence at CES 2019 and in the past has launched its Fenix series and also the Vivoactive and based on recent FCC filings suggesting Garmin is going to release a new wearable at CES 2019.

Currently, bets are on it being Garmin watch running WearOS or a Vivoactive 3 Plus, but its now unlikely that a Fenix 6 is coming at CES 2019 based on latest information.

Based on a recent dismissal request by Garmin for the very same FCC filing, it would appear Garmin has confirmed that a new Garmin Wearable is coming to CES 2019 and this evident by the following statement.

“This application contains company sensitive information that will seriously compromise a very important marketing announcement at our biggest trade show of the year”

  1. Please no wearOS!

    I’d like a running or tri-watch (similar to the 935) with LTE to be able to stream music, get audio-feedbacks and live-tracking.

  2. The reason for their dismissal: check out the RF Exposure document. They report that the device has LTE. LTE enabled Vivoactive device is launching at CES 2019.
