Hi Rookie and All,

The GH-595 type triathlon sport watch is on the roadmap. So, we need more suggestions about what features would you like to be included in this watch.

Keep those suggestions coming in. :)

Nice to hear!

Ok, I'll start with minimium requirements.
-SirfStar IV
-Water proof
-Battery life at least 15h, 20h or more would be ideal
-ANT+ support
-Memory belt for saving HRM data during swim
-Features combine of GH-625xt and GB-580P. Multisport features most important
-Big and clear display

"Nice to have" features
-Stroke & distance counter for indoor swimming
-Wireless data transfer to PC
-Start/stop/enter and lap/esc button front side like on GH-505

Other member, please continue...

hi,

it would be fine if future models have Bluetooth to communicate with PC and smartphone for uploading activities to the cloud or downloading tracks / routes for navigation by an app.

Best regards

HW: Keep it thin.
Number of button may be small, if it cuts costs.
Display: No need to be bigger, just use it better, no black borders or big labels.

Binary standard protocol, like .fit.

it would be fine if future models have Bluetooth to communicate with PC and smartphone for uploading activities to the cloud or downloading tracks / routes for navigation by an app.

If ANT+ is used, the communication can as well be done with ANT. ANT is supported on some phones. PC will need a separate ANT receiver (USB).
I prefer USB Mass Storage myself.

Please update on the progress of this watch. How long will it take before it comes out in the market? I am so happy with the GB-580P that I have been using for some time that I want to buy my running watch from you guys only. Only problem is that the current watches don't support ANT and that's an important feature for me.

Hello baccilus,

We plan to have a working sample of the new product which would be possibly available by next year.

More details would be provided as time goes on. Please look forward to it.

Any idea of where GlobalSat is with new products, ie watches?  It seems like the development cycle for new watches is slow.   Something a little more slimmed down than the gh625xt which is huge on my wrist. I love the watch and all that it has to offer (especially at 1/3 of the price of Garmin units) but would love a smaller watch that could be worn as an everyday watch.  Even if you had to reduce the battery life, I think a lot of people would be interested in a smaller watch.  Thoughts?
