Just seen it today on Social Media. I do like it and the price is more doable. Msrp is $350 they said. Id be interested in it, yes alot going on that sight but nothing a side bar wouldnt take care of.

Nice, but really apples and oranges. The Garmin is a single pin sight exactly where you want it to be for that particular shot. If it really does what they claim, it will be a hot item.

The IQ sight will be on my bow before next season for sure. Affordable option that does what you need. The Garmin is "cool" for sure but who needs all the bells and whistles. For less than half the price I am perfectly fine with deciding what pin to shoot with after knowing the range...lol

For $350, the Garmin would have to be priced at like $1200+ for me to not buy the Garmin. Apples and oranges......the Garmin is years ahead in tech.

I like the IQ better than the Garmin despite the cost. If the battery dies, you still have pins with the IQ. My understanding with the Garmin is that there is no pin with a dead battery. I can't get either one since they are both illegal in Ohio, but the IQ would be my choice if I could use one.

Another very cool product
If not for the Garmin I would be very intetested in it

I think the different price point Presents a great opportunity for those who want similar tech but won’t/can’t spend $1000

I see upside to both products and I’m sure we haven’t seen the last of this style of sight
More companies will try to come up with their own version soon which will be good for those looking for this sort of thing

This has been a cool start to 2018 for archey imo

Let’s see

IQ sight is a standard multi pin sight with range finder integrated into it, cool

Garmin is a red dot sight with ranging / ballistic computer that once sighted in puts dot in correct position for any range within its capacity

These two sights are not comparable

If garmin was able to price the sight at $400-500 the rest of the high end sight companies would be screwed

Garmin will function as a multi pin if batteries die per their ATA video
Negative. It will function as a fixed pin if it is unable to pick up range for any reason or you put it on that mode. Otherwise, the battery is needed to project the pins.

I personally don't want a sight housing moving on its own. I don't think it will be a seller. If both priced equally I would go with the IQ.

If you don’t replace batteries before the season starts

That’s your own damn fault
