garmin vivohub 2

There's a new TV streaming stick on the horizon, and it's made by satnav company Garmin.

It's called the Vivohub 2, and according to a leak, it runs Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, which is a couple of years old now.

It will fulfil much the same role as Google's Chromecast or Amazon's Fire TV Stick. Plug it into your telly's HDMI port, and it'll stream TV shows and films over Wi-Fi.

It'll have a 1GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, an ARM Mali-400 graphics chip, and Bluetooth and Wi-Fi.

The Vivofit 1 was a hub designed for corporate wellness programs, that collected data from Garmin's Vivofit activity trackers. There's a chance Garmin could include some of the same skills, and have it show fitness data on your TV. Better shape up, unless you want everyone in the room seeing how unfit you are.

That would set it apart in an already crowded field of streaming dongles. The aforementioned rivals are simple to use and very affordable, and are from household names too. Garmin might have a fight on its hands.
