Garmin has this week unveiled a new fitness tracker it has created in the form of the Garmin Vivoactive HR which builds on the technology included in its previous wrist worn wearables and now provides a number of new features to help you stay on top of your game.
The new Garmin Vivoactive HR is priced at $250 and takes the form of a GPS smartwatch with a sunlight-readable, high-resolution colour touchscreen and has been designed for cycling, swimming, running and more.
No smart connection is required but the wearable smart fitness tracker can be paired with your smartphone and companion application to provide details of notifications and link to other applications. The internal battery is capable of providing power for up to 8 days although if you are using the GPS system it will only run continuously for 13 hours before needing a recharge. Watch the video below to learn more about this latest addition to the Garmin fitness tracking product range.
Run, bike, swim, golf, ski and more with vívoactive HR. Its GPS-enabled built-in sports apps track your stats while smart notifications allow you to stay connected — all so you can keep your life in balance. vívoactive HR continues to track activity³ throughout your day by counting steps and floors climbed as well as monitoring sleep and calculating intensity minutes. You won’t have to worry about this watch keeping up with you. The rechargeable battery lasts up to 8 days² in watch/activity tracking mode or up to 13 hours using GPS.
With Elevate wrist heart rate technology, you can ditch the chest strap and measure heart rate from the wrist. Using heart rate data, vívoactive HR provides calories burned information and quantifies the intensity of your fitness activities, providing better credit for your efforts.
Throughout your day, vívoactive HR automatically syncs¹ to Garmin Connect. Garmin Connect is the only free app that gets to know you and then delivers the insights to help you beat yesterday. These include cues to move if you’re not on track to meet your step goal — or shoutouts when you do hit those milestones. Plus, you’ll get healthy tips from experts that become like virtual coaches.
