Tired of allergies flaring up on your adventures? Now with the help of the Connect IQ Store and the Garmin Air App, you can monitor the air around you straight from your wrist.

Garmin Air provides real-time air pollution and UV information from more than 4000 monitoring stations with air quality and 1500 monitoring stations with UV throughout China, Taiwan, Japan and the United States. The Garmin Connect Mobile application must be active on your connected mobile device. When indoors the last known GPS location is used.
