Garmin Vivosmart HR coming next month
Garmin unveiled three new Forerunner fitness watches with heart rate monitoring capabilities last week, and now they come back with the Vivosmart HR fitness tracker. This smart wearable features a touchscreen and Elevate wrist heart rate technology, providing a full range of notifications. When paired to a compatible handset, it allows the user to receive notifications, control music, and more.
Although the Garmin Vivosmart HR has an always-on display and 24/7 heart rate monitoring, it can stay on for up to five days on a single charge. Next to the heart rate, it can track step count, calories burned, distance, floors climbed, as well as sleep quality. Smartphone notifications available include text, calls, email, social media, or calendar alerts. Vivosmart HR is also waterproof, being able to handle a pressure of 5 ATM or a depth of 165 feet.
Garmin Vivosmart HR has a MSRP of $149.99 USD and can be already pre-ordered from Best Buy. Available colors are black, imperial purple, and midnight blue. Best Buy stores will offer it for purchase starting next week.
