Garmin Forerunner 910xt: Delayed, again

The Garmin Forerunner 910xt, which has been due for release for a few months and keeps being delayed, was supposed to finally arrive at my local shop in the UK on 01-Feb-12. It looks like one hell of a bit of kit, and although pricey, ticks all the boxes if you’re ever going to consider doing a triathlon.

So today I thought I’d just check with my running shop to make sure that the date they told me (01-Feb-12) was still on target. They checked, and no… it’s delayed, again. This time, stock is expected to arrive 12-Feb-12. You do have to wonder whether this date is as reliable as all the others, which would be roughly defined as “unreliable”. Still, at least the delay is only (ha!) another 11 days.

The watch was originally expected long before Christmas 2011. Slightly annoyingly, Australia seem to have received theirs a couple of weeks ago. Maybe that’s fair enough; it’s summer down there at the moment, and a bit chilly up here right now, so maybe that was Garmin’s thinking. Who knows. I’m just making up excuses for them now.

Keep those fingers crossed for a mid-February release date.

  1. According to chainreaction.com mine is due 8/3 but I wait and see. Doing quite a bit of swimming in the pool at the minute and this would have been perfect

  2. I’m too scared to ask my shop if the 12th Feb is still on target for delivery of mine. I suspect I’ll only be disappointed with the reply.
