Garmin: Several smartwatches including Fenix, Epix and Venu 3 may get skin temperature measurement feature via software update

The Garmin Venu 3 will also be able to measure skin temperature in the future

Several Garmin smartwatches can get new functionality within the scope of a software update. Consequently, hardware requirements are unlikely to be an issue.

The different Garmin wearables offer a wide range of functions, although they differ from one model to another. Garmin is behind the competition in measuring skin temperature, something that until now was not possible in its watches. Now, hints are emerging that owners of different Garmin wearables will be able to enjoy this new feature.

Clues have also been revealed about a corresponding feature in the new Fenix ​​​​and Epix smartwatches. Specifically, a new beta update for smart watches involves the creation of a folder called skin temperature. However, this folder does not appear on all Fenix ​​7 and current Epix models, but only on the Fenix ​​7 Pro and Epix Pro.

What sets the Pro models apart from the already very well-equipped base Fenix ​​and Epix models is that the Pro variants come with an Elevate 5 sensor, an advanced sensor that measures, among other things, heart rate. This sensor is not only found in the Pro models, but also in the Venu 3 and VivoActive 5 smart watches.

As Marko Maslakovic describes in detail in a post on Gadgets and wearables, skin temperature measurement was also noted in leaked images of the Venu 3, but Garmin has apparently decided not to implement the feature yet. Therefore, it is not clear when the skin temperature measurement function can actually be used on the various smartwatches. Garmin itself has not yet commented on the matter.
