Garmin Vivosmart 5: India Launch

Garmin Vivosmart 5 has been launched in India at a price point of Rs 14990 INR

Garmin Vivosmart 5 fitness tracker has been launched in India and it features a 0.73-inch OLED display with 88×154 pixels resolution. The small variant fits wrist with a circumference of 122-188mm, and the large variant fits wrist with a circumference of 148-228mm, as per the company. It is fitted with multiple sensors including a Garmin Elevate heart rate sensor, pulse oxygen saturation sensor along with an accelerometer, and an ambient light sensor. Garmin says that the wearable has 5ATM rating which means it can withstand pressures equivalent to a depth of 50 meters. In layman’s terms, wearers do not need to remove the band when going for a swim. The fitness tracker is compatible with both Android and iOS.

Health monitoring features on the Garmin Vivosmart 5 include heart rate monitoring, blood oxygen tracking, advanced sleep monitoring, stress tracking, and women’s health tracking. Other features include Body Battery Energy Monitoring in which the tracker records the body energy levels throughout the day to find the best time durations for activity and rest.

It also sports a Hydration Tracking feature that logs in the wearer’s daily fluid intake and reminds them to stay hydrated. Users can also set an auto goal for hydration that adjusts based on the sweat lost during activities. Another feature is Respiration Tracking, which shows how the wearer is breathing throughout the day.

The Fitness Age feature on Garmin Vivosmart 5 uses chronological age, the wearer’s weekly vigorous activity, resting heart rate, and BMI or body fat percentage to estimate if the wearer’s body is younger or older than they actually are. The smart fitness tracker provides tips to lower their fitness age, the company claims.

Users also get a step counter, calories burnt, data on distance covered, and support for gym exercises and other sports. Connectivity features on the Garmin Vivosmart 5 include Bluetooth Smart and ANT+. The company says that the wearable can deliver up to 7 days of battery life on a single charge.
