Garmin has introduced its Vivomove Trend, a stylish connected watch with a touchscreen… but also true mechanical hands.
In addition to its ranges for Forerunner running, for Venu fitness or for Epix trail running, Garmin also offers slightly more elegant connected watches, with its Garmin Vivomove range. In this segment, the manufacturer of hyper sports watches also offers more aesthetic models thanks to a system of real hands.
Garmin has just introduced its new hybrid watch, the Garmin Vivomove Trend. Unveiled this Wednesday, it’s a smartwatch with real physical hands plus a monochrome LCD touch screen thanks to the integrated touch glass above the dial. The screen actually occupies a large area of the dial with a definition of 346 x 254 pixels. It will allow you to display not only notifications of received messages, but also display some health data such as heart rate, number of steps taken, or breathing control.
Complete activity tracking… but without built-in GPS
Regarding health data, the Garmin Vivomove Trend is capable of measuring heart rate, blood oxygen saturation, respiratory rate, number of steps, or sleep score. It can also support training in 14 different sports with estimation of VO2Max and physical age. On the other hand, unlike the brand’s running watches, the Vivomove Trend does not have a GPS chip. Therefore, you will necessarily have to go through the GPS tracking of your smartphone during your workouts.
Other functions it offers are contactless payment via NFC with Garmin Pay, the announced autonomy of up to 5 days in connected mode or wireless charging using the Qi induction charging protocol.
The Garmin Vivomove Trend is available from Wednesday, February 1 at a price of 329.99 euros. Four colors are available: black, white and pink, white and equipped, or white and gray.
