Take activities on the go with vívosport, the latest GPS-enabled smart activity tracker from Garmin®

Garmin International, Inc., a unit of Garmin Ltd. (NASDAQ: GRMN), today
announced the vívosportTM,
the smart activity tracker1 with ElevateTM 24/7
wrist-based heart rate and GPS to accurately track every walk, run and
ride. With an always-on Garmin ChromaTM color touchscreen
display and new built-in sports apps for everything from strength
training to cycling and cardio, the vívosport is optimized for both
indoor and outdoor workouts. Smart notifications keep users connected as
they jump from one activity to the next, and fitness and wellness
monitoring tools provide valuable information like fitness age and
stress level. Safe for swimming and showering2 and featuring
a battery life3 of up to 7 days in smartwatch mode and 8
hours in GPS mode, this ultra-slim tracker is built for life on the go.
The vívosport is one of the many new wearables from Garmin being
launched in conjunction with IFA in Berlin, Germany, September 1-6.

“We realize that many customers prefer to work out with a slim fitness
band but don’t want to compromise on the fitness and connectivity
features typically found on smartwatches,” said Dan Bartel, Garmin vice
president of worldwide sales. “With vívosport, you get the best of a
smart activity tracker and a sports watch in an ultra-slim, ultra-sleek

The vívosport features helpful fitness monitoring tools including VO2
max and fitness age which provide users with valuable data to monitor
changes in their fitness level. Increased activity – like walking the
dog or training for a 10K – will improve these numbers over time. The
vívosport also includes all-day stress tracking by measuring users’ HRV
(heart rate variability). The ability to view both current stress levels
at the wrist and a longer timetable of stress on Garmin ConnectTM
allows customers to identify patterns and consider making lifestyle
changes to avoid or better cope with stress-inducing situations. A
Four-Fold Breath relaxation timer further helps users balance stress and

With built-in sports apps for walking, running, biking, cardio and
strength training, the vívosport is the perfect accessory for running
the neighborhood, conquering a high-intensity interval training (HIIT)
class or counting reps and sets in the gym. And thanks to Garmin Move IQTM,
the vívosport automatically classifies multiple activities, making it
even easier for users to get credit for their workouts.

Give loved ones peace of mind during outdoor workouts with LiveTrack4,
a feature that tracks activity and location in real time. Designated
individuals will receive invitations via email, Facebook or Twitter with
a link to a webpage that includes the position of the connected
vívosport device. The vívosport is the only fitness band to include this
LiveTrack feature.

Stay connected on the move with vibration alerts for emails, texts,
calls, calendar reminders, app alerts, social media updates and more
from a compatible smartphone4. Users will also benefit from
the ability to control music on their smartphone from the vívosport,
send an alert to locate a misplaced smartphone, and control a Garmin VIRB®
camera (sold separately).

Throughout the day, the vívosport automatically syncs with the Garmin
Connect mobile app to save stats for easy access later. In Garmin
Connect, a free online community, users can see their workouts, strength
training activities, stress levels and sleep patterns displayed on
detailed graphs. View outdoor workouts on detailed maps, compete in
weekly challenges and connect with other fitness enthusiasts, right from
a compatible smartphone or desktop computer.

The ultimate companion for both indoor and outdoor activities, the
vívosport features a sunlight-readable always-on, Garmin Chroma color
touchscreen display and ultra-slim, sporty band available in black/slate
(small/medium and large), black/fuchsia (small/medium only) and
black/limelight (large only). The vívosport has a suggested retail price
of $199.99. To see what the vívosport has to offer, check out this
