The talk of town of the technology arena presently is the wearables. In fact its market is growing strong. Some tout it as the next generation advancement. To be specific, the smartwatch concept looks pretty rapidly progressing. On this context, we have come up with the latest Garmin Vivoactive GPS smartwatch. It was a buzzed aspect of the CES 2015, and one of the finest stuffs for the fitness freaks.
It packs a nice square design pattern for Garmin Vivoactive. Meeting the current trend of trimmed body, it is just 8 mm thick. Anyway, the product is available presently in black and white editions. The 1.13 x 0.8 inches display has resolution of 205 x 148 pixels. Great to see is that you can read in sunrays. The touch screen display is quite flexible for daily usage. For the trendy fans it is made available with exchangeable bands. Its feather weight carries only 38 grams. Still, reportedly there are some groups those are a little disappointed about its design concept. They have to say the rounded shape of the wearable was better.
Though the thickness is enough trimmed, still, it could have been a little more. Especially, being a wearable there are now good number of options like smartwatches available. Anyway, it has a good bundle of specs that can overcome any other issue. Have a look below.
Finally we got something wearable playing other than Android. You can capture data based on GPS. No matter the user walks, runs, plays, or even in water, the device can give you information. It is water resistive up to 50 meters. There is native accelerometer and like the latest smartphone it has ability to track heartbeat as well.
Finest alert, reports about your work-out, compares previous records
It can make well friendship with your Android and iOS as well. There’s a great notification panel that lets you aware of the messages, alerts, social media, etc. Just wear it and go for your sports activity keeping the smartphone safe at your home, as it has native GPS to get connected.
It reports you about the amount of calories you lost or the distance you covered. The Garmin Connect Mobile application along Vivoactive gives you the result. Interestingly, it compares effort with earlier records as well.
Apart from this, there is option to control the music and destine the smartphone. There is this Live Track spec that allow others to track the user, especially useful for the athletes so that they can manipulate themselves.
Battery, Price and Availability
It is quite powerful as well. The battery of the device can continue for about three weeks with a single charge. However, upon using GPS the battery gets scrapped for more than 9 hours.
Coming to the availability, the product is reportedly all set to hit the United States during March, and a little later in the UK. It looks quite satisfactory in terms of price as well, expected being tagged at about £200. However, there is no confirmation regarding the product’s availability in the UK.
After looking at all its described specs the product definitely looks quite impressive. It is creative and has certainly come with something revamped in terms of wearables. Being specific, the product seems quite useful for the health conscious or the athletes.
