The latest addition to Garmin's line of wearables is a new hybrid smartwatch. The long-rumored Garmin Vivomove Trend went on sale today and features the classic analog aesthetic that houses the Undercover Smart. Out of the box, buyers will find Garmin's unique hidden display and original watch hands familiar. Like the company's other hybrids, the trend's dynamic hands move when users want to view health stats or access smart features.
Beneath the surface, the Vivomove Trend offers smartphone notifications, activity and health tracking, and support for contactless payments using Garmin Pay. Compatible with Android and Apple phones; However, Quick-Reply is only available for Android users. On the sensor front, the watch has continuous heart rate monitoring (with abnormal heart rate alerts), SpO2 monitoring, stress and sleep monitoring. The device is also compatible with Garmin's women's health tracker for menstruators. Other highlights of the brand's ecosystem include Body Battery and Fitness Age.
A distinctive feature of the new device is wireless charging. Instead of a messy cable or a complicated connection, users can set and forget the trend on a Qi-certified compatible charger. Once charged, it offers up to five days of battery life in smartwatch mode.
Garmin Vivomove Trend is available in different attractive colors like Cream Gold and French Gray, Peach Gold and Ivory, Slate and Black, Silver and Smoke Gray. Customers can also design their own color combinations on Garmin.com. The device currently starts at $269.
