Garmin Venu and vivoactive 4: Fitness smartwatches with animated workouts and health monitoring features
If you didn't track your workout for the day, did it really happen? We don't mean shouting it out on your Instagram Stories, but an actual account of what your body accomplished with exact stats down to the tee. To that demand, Garmin has always been ahead of the curve to merging health and technology into its dynamic range of watches. Now, the Garmin Venu, which shapes up a glorious AMOLED display, alongside a fleet of on-device workouts. These aren't any ordinary workouts, but are demonstrated with animation and countdown timers in place to keep track of your pace and posture.
Variety is key here when it comes to the training regimes. Think strength, cardio, yoga, pilates to start with. And if you're looking to personalise it just a little more to your fitness goals, tap on Garmin Coach, an application that customises plans just for your needs and expectations.
Not picky about the swanky interface? Opt for the vivoactive 4 and 4s, which offers the same arsenal of fitness animated workouts. You'll also be able to access other health monitoring features like advance sleep tracking with Pulse Ox, abnormal heart rate alerts, menstrual cycle tracking, hydration reminders and more. A star feature is Innovative Body Battery, that measures your energy levels in that exact moment — determining which workout is best, how much rest you need, and when should you go to sleep.
Weirdly enough, we still don't know enough about how our bodies work, so these fitness watches might just be our closest bet.
