I just went to garmin.com to check out whether there are some news. As expected MK1 Descent is on 20% off sale for just ~$800 instead of ~$1000, in expectation of MK2. But suprisingly at Instinct, the price rose 50% from $199 to $299 (at the standard version)! I am afraid it does not signal any optimistic news for the awaited Instinct 2. I fear it means Instinct 2 will be quie a bit more expensive than many of us hoped for.
