Garmin launches Vivosmart fitness smartband through BestBuy

Friday 5 September 2014 | 09:58 CET | News
Garmin has announced Vivosmart, a wristband that tracks the users' activity levels and provides smart notifications. Like Vivofit and Forerunner 15, Vivosmart gets to know users' current activity levels and nudges them toward a more active lifestyle with personalised daily goals, and reminds them when it is time to move. The wristband's easy-to-operate touchscreen displays time of day, steps, distance, calories, move bar, goal countdown and its battery lasts up to seven days. The Garmin Connect Mobile app supports MyFitnessPal to view calories burned and yet to burn to reach daily targets.
