To break it down...

 

running_symbolRun/Walk/Jog

Whether you’re training for a 5K or just for life in general, the running app uses GPS to capture essential running data such as distance and pace. A built-in accelerometer and wrist-based speed and cadence trackers eliminate the need for a separate foot pod when running on an indoor track or treadmill and also when GPS is unavailable. You can set up vibration alerts for heart rate, pace and run/walk intervals. Other training features include Auto Lap® and Auto Pause®. Automatic sync with Garmin Connect™ Mobile gives you a post-run summary, including calories burned and if you scored any personal records, such as your fastest or longest run to date.

Bike

The GPS-enabled cycling app measures time, distance, speed and calories. Compatible with sensors such as speed, cadence, and heart rate monitors to measure your progress on training rides as well as daily commutes.

 

swimming

Swim

The thin profile cuts through the water, and its 5 ATM water rating means you can swim, sweat and shower with it on, worry-free. Auto length accelerometer-based technology automatically gauges total and interval distance, laps, calories burned, session average, interval and length pace and stroke count, including number of strokes per length and interval and session averages. View your time and interval distance at a glance. Interval Count lets you seamlessly pause and then resume your workout.

 

golf_symbolGolf

Pair with your smartphone to download course maps from Garmin's golf course database — with more than 38,000 courses worldwide — to play favorite and new courses. The golfing app keeps maps updated and tallies hole number and par. GPS measures layup and dogleg distances, as well as distances to the front, middle and back of the green, to improve usability over the entire hole. Individual stroke play scorecard lets you see if you’re under or over par. Measure shot distance at the press of a button. Round timer counts up time on the course, while the built-in accelerometer tracks your steps.

 

Garmin new smartwatch 4Keep Active

vívoactive follows your progress even when you’re not engaged in a specific activity. The activity tracking app tracks your steps to learn your current activity level, then assigns an attainable daily step count goal. As you meet your milestones, the device will adjust your goal for the next day. The red move bar appears on the display after 1 hour of inactivity and builds when you’ve been sitting too long. Just walk for a couple of minutes to reset the move bar. Set the sleep mode when you go to bed and vívoactive will monitor your rest. It also tracks your calories burned.
