Body Battery® Energy Monitoring
See your body’s energy levels throughout the day so you can find the best times for activity and rest.
Pulse Ox Sensor
The Pulse Ox sensor gauges your blood oxygen saturation during the day and as you sleep to show how well your body is absorbing oxygen.
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.
Menstrual Cycle Tracking
Use the Garmin Connect™ app to track your cycle, log physical and emotional symptoms and learn about training and nutrition during each phase of your cycle. Even get cycle tracking information on your wrist.
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.
Advanced Sleep Monitoring
Get a full picture of how you’re sleeping, with a breakdown of your light, deep and REM sleep stages as well as Pulse Ox1 and respiration data.
Wrist-Based Heart Rate
The watch constantly samples your heart rate and will alert you if it stays high while you’re at rest. It also helps gauge how hard you work during activities — even underwater.
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.
Animated, On-Screen Workouts
Easy-to-follow, animated cardio, strength, yoga and Pilates workouts come preloaded on the watch, and you can download more from the Garmin Connect app.
Get a personal running coach on your wrist, for free, to help you train for your next 5K, 10K or half-marathon.
Build your own workouts in Garmin Connect, and download them to the watch.
Receive emails, texts and alerts right on your watch when paired with a compatible smartphone. You can even respond to texts if you have an Android™ phone.
Download songs plus playlists from your compatible music accounts (subscription may be required). Use wireless headphones (sold separately) for phone-free listening.
Garmin Pay™ service
Breeze through checkout lines and select transit systems with Garmin Pay contactless payment solution4 through participating providers.
Safety and Tracking Features
When your watch and phone are paired, your live location can be sent to your contacts manually or — during outdoor activities — automatically with built-in incident detection.
Stay on the move longer with a battery life that lasts up to 7 days in smartwatch mode and up to 5 hours in GPS mode with music.
The always-on, sunlight-readable Garmin Chroma Display™ technology is housed under durable Corning® Gorilla® Glass 3.
This watch is water-rated to 5 ATM, making it perfect for a swim, shower or spa day.
Connect IQ™ Store
Add personality to your watch by downloading apps, widgets, watch faces and more. It’s easy and — even better — it’s free.
