If you are a Garmin fanatic or fancy waiting for the next round of its smartwatches before you jump in, recent leaks have revealed that a big shakeup is coming.

Garmin appears set to refresh its staple Vivoactive and Vivomove lines in the coming months. The changes show off a redesign rather than just a small update for the next-generation. Garmin is also launching a new line – which looks squarely aimed at taking on the Apple Watch – the Garmin Venu series.

While Garmin is a popular fitness tracking and smartwatch brand, it was recently revealed the company only makes up 7% of the wearable market. The figure itself doesn’t seem too bad, but it’s down from 8.4% the year prior.
