Techstination feature for Wednesday, March 18, 2015

The Apple Watch may be coming, but competitors aren’t exactly standing still.   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.   From Pebble to Samsung and Motorola to Garmin…companies that make smart watches are bracing for the new competition from Apple.   At Garmin, the new Fenix 3 has arrived, combining a rugged multi-sport watch with the ability to connect to smartphones for notifications.  Garmin’s Maddie Estrada….

“We just added an updated UI, a color screen, it has the advanced running dynamics, cycling options as well.   And it also is compatible with our Connect IQ  platform.  So it essentially makes it a smartwatch as well.”

It is a big, rechargeable watch.  Unlike some competitors it does not have a built in heart rate sensor, but easily connects to heart rate bands sold by Garmin and others.   There’s more info at  You can find us at   I’m Fred Fishkin
