Push Performance to A Whole New Level:
Sports Apps: Use preloaded activity profiles for trail running, swimming, running, biking, hiking, rowing, skiing, golfing and more. Fitness Age: This feature uses chronological age, your weekly vigorous activity and resting heart rate to estimate if your body is younger or older than you are. And you can get tips to lower your fitness age. Recovery Time: After each workout, recovery time lets you know when you'll be ready for another hard work out. It even accounts for training intensity and factors such as stress, daily activity and sleep.

Body Battery Energy Monitoring: Track your body's energy levels so you can find the best times for activity and rest. Hydration Tracking: Log daily fluid intake as a reminder to stay hydrated. When auto goal is enabled, you'll even see estimated sweat loss after an activity, and your goal will adjust accordingly. Women's Health Tracking: Use the Garmin Connect app to track your menstrual cycle or pregnancy. Log symptoms, get exercise and nutrition education, and more. Wrist-Based Heart Rate: The watch constantly samples your heart rate (4) and will alert you if it stays too high or too low while you're at rest. It also helps gauge how hard you work during activities even while swimming.
