[CES 2015] Garmin is at it again – and it does look as though they are on a roll this CES with a slew of devices being introduced, and they are not quite done yet. Here we are with the Vivoactive, which is a lightweight and ultra-thin GPS smartwatch that will come with integrated sports and activity tracking apps. After all, with the amount of feasting done over the holiday season, isn’t it time you got some outside help to maintain a healthy lifestyle and shed some weight around the waist?
The Vivoactive will be able to capture more of one’s activities thanks to the GPS-enabled running, cycling, golfing, swimming and activity tracking apps. Vívoactive is good enough to wear all day round, where smart notifications would ensure that users remain connected. There is also the new Connect IQ store which would enable users to customize Vivoactive with free watch face designs, widgets and additional apps for that added touch of personalization.
In addition, the Vivoactive will boast of a sunlight-readable, high-resolution color touchscreen display, allowing it to be accessorized with interchangeable bands so that it can complement any outfit or occasion. Golfers too, can take advantage of the Vivoactive since there are more than 38,000 course maps to choose from worldwide, and it is also water-resistant to 50 meters, making it ideal for swimming. Choose from either black or white shades for the Garmin Vivoactive as it ships from Q1 onward, where it will retail for $249.99 and $299.99 with a heart rate monitor bundle. [Press Release]
