Garmin Vivosmart 5: Leak reveals a bigger display, renders, and sleep quality evaluation for the upcoming affordable fitness tracker
Garmin's Vivosmart line of trackers is surely mostly forgotten at this point. After all, the company's last entry in the series was launched way back in 2018. Going on four years after the release of the Vivosmart 4, however, Garmin is finally set to bring the Vivosmart 5 to the market.
As revealed by Roland Quandt, the Vivosmart 5 is on the way. The fitness tracker will feature an OLED display with a much larger display than the Vivosmart 4. 66% larger, to be exact. The Vivosmart 4 features 0.26" x 0.70" display, for some context. It's unspecified if this larger display will come with an increase in the fitness tracker's resolution, as the Vivosmart 4 has a 48 x 128 screen.
According to the leak, the Vivosmart 5 will offer seven days of battery life—the same as the Vivosmart 4 is advertised with. The Vivosmart 4 already offers a slew of features including a heart-rate monitor, barometric altimeter, pulse ox blood oxygen saturation monitor, and alerts for abnormal heart rates. The Vivosmart 5 can be expected to land with all of these, with the addition of a Sleep Score for evaluation of sleep quality. Hydration and stress monitoring is also tipped.
The Garmin Vivosmart 5 will be available in black, white, and mint green colorways. A black model with a larger bracelet is also expected. Pricing is unknown but the Vivosmart 4 debuted with a US$129.99 MSRP.
