Garmin has rolled out a new update to its fitness watches this week bringing with it a new feature in the form of menstrual cycle tracking, “helping women make the connection between their current cycle phase, physical and emotional symptoms, and overall wellbeing”. The new feature has been created by Garmin to enable female users to use the company’s Garmin Connect service to log their cycle and symptoms and in turn receive predictions for their period and fertile windows.
“Garmin has leveraged our unparalleled fitness expertise into a feature that lets active women track their cycle in the same place they tracked their last run,” said Susan Lyman, Garmin vice president of global consumer marketing. “Cycle tracking was developed for women, by Garmin women – from the engineers, to the project managers, to the marketing team. In this way we could ensure that we were authentically addressing a woman’s actual wants and needs.”
“Cycle tracking can be customized based on whether a cycle is regular, irregular, or transitioning into menopause. Users can track daily physical and emotional symptoms and even add their own notes. Cycle tracking brings awareness to fluctuations in things like sleep, mood, appetite, athletic performance and more. With regular symptom logging, women can begin to predict how they will feel at a given point in their cycle in case they want to adjust their diet or activities. Those with a Connect IQ compatible device1 also have the option of getting cycle tracking information and discreet period reminders right on the wrist.”
