Given how much has been modded/hackable in the past does it seem likely the Garmin Fenix GPS watch with BLE will be made to communicate and allow notifications from Android phone? The Fenix currently pairs and is compatible with the iPhone. Garmin's position is (paraphrasing) there are too many versions/models of Android. On the later model Android phones is an app all that is needed? It was known going in that there was no support for Android. The watch's features are outstanding as a stand alone watch. It would be "over the top" if someday it would allow for Android notifications.


I am using a Nexus 4 and the Tactix.

A Time to Speculate and Opinionate

Not looking for a solution as much as attempting to tap into the fast reserve of knowledge and wisdom the internet has created in the unification of us mere mortals to glimpse the future based on past accomplishments (0_0). Seriously, it does seem a bit odd that a watch as powerful and popular as it seems to be has not been whipped into shape and brought to it full potential like displaying Android phone notifications making use of a loud alarm and a great vibration motor.
