This tracker constantly monitors your heart rate2 and can alert you if it stays too high or low while you’re at rest. It also helps gauge how hard you work during activities.


See your body’s energy levels throughout the day so you can find the best times for activity and rest.


Use the Pulse Ox sensor3 to spot-check your blood oxygen saturation at any point during the day, or for part of the night as you sleep, to show how well your body is absorbing oxygen.


Get a score for your sleep’s quality and insights on how you can do better through the Garmin Connect app. Even keep track of the different sleep stages as well as heart rate2, stress, Pulse Ox3 and respiration.


Find out if you’re having a calm, balanced or stressful day. Relax reminders will even prompt you to do a short breathing activity when you’re feeling stressed.


When you want to relax or focus, you can start a breathwork activity, and this watch will track your stress and respiration to help you get a better understanding of how you’re breathing.


Log your daily fluid intake as a reminder to stay hydrated. You can even have an auto goal for hydration that adjusts based on how much sweat you lose during activities.


See how you’re breathing throughout the day, during sleep and during breathwork and yoga activities.


Use the Garmin Connect app to track your menstrual cycle or pregnancy. Log symptoms, get exercise and nutrition education, and more. Even see and log details on your wrist.


This feature uses chronological age, your weekly vigorous activity, resting heart rate and BMI or body fat percentage4 to estimate if your body is younger or older than you are. And you can get tips to lower your fitness age.


While you’re out and about, vívosmart 5 tracks steps, intensity minutes, calories burned and more2. Get all the stats you need directly on your wrist.


Switch up your workout routine with activity profiles for walking, running, yoga, Pilates, cardio, mindful breathing, strength training and more.


Connect to your compatible smartphone’s GPS so you can get accurate tracking during outdoor walks, rides and runs.


Receive emails, texts and alerts right on your watch when paired with your smartphone. You can even respond to texts if you have an Android smartphone.


When connected to your smartphone, incident detection (during select outdoor activities) and Assistance5 sends messages and live location information to emergency contacts.


See your health and fitness information all in one place. The Garmin Connect app is a thriving online community where people on the go can connect, compete and share.


This fitness tracker is water-rated to 5 ATM, making it perfect for a swim or shower.
