Magellan has unveiled some coming attractions for it’s Echo
sportssmartwatch. For one thing, they will be adding hiking, golf, skiing and other activities to the device which initially focused on the fitness crowd. Also welcome is the announcement that Android support is coming early this year.
The company also noted that the Golf Pad, FreeCaddie and AllTrails apps will be integrating Echo support in the near future. And for all you stylistas out there, Magellan is adding a couple of new colors — dark blue and gray.
This is probably a smart choice for Magellan, creating a single hardware platform and hitting multiple niches via updates that add new activities/profiles.
We should have a full review of the Echo in the near future, courtesy Jim Cyr.
Here’s the full news release.
