Introducing Index Smart Scale from Garmin®

Garmin International Inc., a unit of Garmin Ltd. (NASDAQ: GRMN), today
announced Index Smart Scale. A connected scale with metrics that matter,
the Index Smart Scale is another tool that will help Garmin users pursue
their health and fitness goals. In addition to weight, it measures body
mass index, body fat percentage, water percentage, muscle mass and bone
mass. Designed for multiple users, this smart scale has an easy-to-use
interface and automatically uploads measurements over Wi-Fi® to Garmin
™. The Index Smart Scale is the first body composition
monitor integrated directly into the Garmin ecosystem of products.

“The Index Smart Scale is an exciting addition to the Garmin lineup,”
said Dan Bartel, Garmin vice president of worldwide sales. “We designed
this smart scale to be both beautiful and functional, and with it we’re
able to complete the wellness circle of weight management. We’re also
excited to offer this as an option to our millions of running, cycling
and multisport athletes who are looking for a smart solution to track
body composition data along with the rest of their data in Garmin

The Index Smart Scale measures the metrics that matter including weight,
BMI, body fat and water percentage, muscle mass and bone mass. It offers
a quick and user-friendly setup, using a smartphone1, WiFi2
or ANT+™3. It also has sleek, modern design with a bright LCD
display and extra large numbers for easy visibility.

Supporting up to 16 different users, the Index Smart Scale is perfect
for sports teams or even small businesses looking to start wellness
initiatives. The Index Smart Scale can recognize each user and
automatically upload data to their individual Garmin Connect accounts.
By simply stepping on the scale, it will recognize the user and
wirelessly sync their measurements, making their data available online
or in the recently updated Garmin
Connect mobile app
. With the available sleep and activity tracking4
already in Garmin Connect, the addition of weight tracking gives Garmin
users a more comprehensive view of their health and wellness. Users can
even link their MyFitnessPal account with Garmin Connect to
automatically sync calorie and nutrition information for even more data
such as active and consumed calories, and remaining calories (based on
goals set in MyFitnessPal).

The Index Smart Scale is being introduced in conjunction with a
360-degree global advertising campaign called “Beat Yesterday,” which
includes television, print, digital and social media executions that
show how Garmin wearables and devices help people as they strive to do
better than they did the day before. “Beat Yesterday” is about being
healthier and moving more, further or faster each day.

Index Smart Scale will be available in November in both black and white.
It has a suggested retail price of $149.99.

For more than 25 years, Garmin has pioneered new GPS navigation and
wireless devices and applications that are designed for people who live
an active lifestyle. Garmin serves five primary business units,
including automotive, aviation, fitness, marine, and outdoor recreation.
