A host of leaked images show what Garmin’s upcoming 2022 smartwatch lineup might look like. A report from the German technology site Win future shows the alleged images of the Garmin Fenix ​​7 series, Venu 2 Plus, Epix Gen2, and Instinct 2 series smartwatches.

The release reveals that the Fenix ​​7 series could come in three models: the standard Fenix ​​7, 7S and 7X, all of which are said to be made of both reinforced plastic and stainless steel. It may also have a built-in solar panel that charges the device while you’re wearing it, along with some well-known tracking features that the Fenix ​​6 originally shipped with (and possibly more). It looks like the base model will only come in black, while the Fenix ​​7S may have an all-white variant, as well as a rose gold frame option with an off-white strap. Win future does not provide additional details on the rumored 7X.

Also included in the post is the Epix Gen2. Garmin originally debuted the Epix smartwatch in 2015, and unlike its predecessor, the leaked images show the Epix Gen2 trading a square dial for a round one. The Epix Gen2 may also have built-in GPS, along with features new to the Epix line of watches, including a blood oxygen sensor, heart rate monitor, and sleep tracking capabilities.

Images of the Instinct 2 and 2S show that the watches may have retained the same rugged look that the original Instinct had when it was first released in 2018. Win future claims that the watches use an e-ink display that allows the device to extend battery life, and also comes with features that track your heart rate, steps, and sleep. The white variant of the basic Instinct smartwatch seems to have an integrated solar panel. However, it remains unclear what the differences are between the 2 and 2S, but it is possible that the 2S is the smaller of the two. The same can be said for the Fenix ​​7 and 7S, as the previously released Fenix ​​6S and Fenix ​​5S models have smaller screens.

last, Win future show us more of what looks like the Venu 2 Plus. Leaked images of this smartwatch are already roaming the internet and the images here only confirm what the first leak shows. The device is rumored to have both black and white variations and an OLED display. It also appears to have an extra third button that the standard Venu 2 doesn’t have, but it’s unclear what it could be for.

We may not have long to wait before Garmin officially announces the lineup. With CES 2022 just weeks away, Garmin can make the big reveal at the event. For now you can view all the leaked images on Win future‘s site.
