You've got new health and wellness companions to watch over you while you play and workout. Introducing, Garmin's Venu™, Vivoactive 4, and Vivomove 3!
Existing since 1989, international brand Garmin has been first known for their cutting-edge GPS technology in the aviation, marine, and automotive industries. Today, they have expanded to the outdoor and fitness markets, bringing their ingenuity and three-decade experience in the engineering industry to the everyday lives of people with active lifestyles.
Last October 18, the brand launched three new smartwatch models that are fit for people who want to keep in shape, and keep their style at the same time. To get you more familiar with the three, here's a closer look at each one of them.
Maintain your classy style with this hybrid smartwatch.
If you prioritize design and is wanting to wear a handy smartwatch while keeping that traditional timepiece fashion on your wrist, this latest model from Garmin's Vivomove series is your best option. With a flick of your wrist, the watch's hands will dynamically move out of the way, revealing the hidden touchscreen display.
In terms of design, the Vivomove 3 is a 44mm watch with stainless-steel bezel, that is locally available in colors Powder Gray with Silver Hardware and Black with Slate Hardware. There is also a handful of colors to choose from for the silicone bands.
Key features of the Vivomove 3 include smart notifications (emails, text messages, and social media notifications), calendar widget, fitness tracking (daily steps, floors climbed, intensity minutes, etc.), body battery (tracks your energy reserves to optimize time for activities and rest), stress tracking and relax reminders, wrist-based heart rate, hydration tracking, and sleep tracking. Its battery life can last for five days in smartwatch mode and will keep ticking for an additional week in watch mode. The Vivomove 3 is priced P16,595.
A well-equipped smartwatch for your active lifestyle necessities.
If you want to skip the hybrid design and maximize the full-screen display that smartwatches can provide, the Vivoactive 4 might be the best Garmin model for you.
