Garmin, the global leader in satellite navigation, today launched vivosmart – a stylish activity tracker with smart notifications. Vivosmart will be exclusively available with Snapdeal.com at a price of MRP- Rs. 12,990 and special price of Rs. 10,990/- in berry, purple, blue, black, and slate in a small or large band size.
The Vivosmrt is sleek, curved wearable band and features a 5 ATM water rating with battery life of up to seven days. It has a hidden OLED display that comes to life to show incoming notifications. Users can also activate the display by double tapping the screen and swiping through the display pages to see the time and date, steps taken, distance, calories, step countdown to a personalized daily goal, move bar, messages received and more. The Move Bar features five segments that begin to fill in after one hour of inactivity, and a timer that lets users know their inactivity. As the segments fill in, vívosmart vibrates and displays the move bar alert, encouraging users to stay consistently active throughout the day. Walking around for a few minutes will reset the move bar.
Moreover, the users can capture more of their active lifestyles by using the timed activity feature to track a workout. This band can be paired with a heart rate monitor or bike speed sensor, or can be used as a remote for a Garmin VIRB or VIRB Elite action camera.
The Vivosmart can be paired with Bluetooth smart devices for getting vibration alerts and display of notifications of incoming text, email, call, calendar reminders. With a gentle vibration vivosmart will display an icon indicating the type of notification and a preview of the message. To read more, simply touch and swipe the screen. Users can also set the built-in alarm clock to have vívosmart vibrate and silently alert them it’s time to start their day – without disturbing others.
Vivosmart automatically syncs with the Garmin Connect Mobile app when in range of a compatible Bluetooth device, so users can check in throughout the day to view reports on activity progress, total sleep hours, periods of movement and restful sleep, and more. Users can also earn virtual badges for extra motivation, and join online challenges.
While in the app users can link their account with a MyFitnessPal account to easily view an accurate count of calories burned and consumed, and see their net count for the remainder of the day based on calorie goals set in MyFitnessPal – giving them a complete picture of their daily activity and nutrition.
“With its activity tracking features, additional workout support including timed activities, and smart notifications vívosmart is like having a personal coach and assistant right on your wrist,” said Tony An, Garmin Asia Sales Director. “It challenges and motivates users to stay active and create lifelong healthy habits, while keeping them connected to family, friends, work, and more. We have partnered with Snapdeal to reach out to a wide range of customers in India, as an extension of our commitment to embrace the lifestyles across the globe.
