ENGINEERED FOR ENDURANCE
This rugged watch is water-rated to 100 meters and is thermal and shock resistant. Plus, with a fiber-reinforced polymer case and chemically strengthened, scratch-resistant Corning Gorilla Glass, this device is built to endure.
DESIGNED TO DO YOU
Bold colors, high-contrast displays and size options let you show the world that you do things your own way.
TRACK EVERY ADVENTURE
Whether you’re hiking, mountain biking, trail running or skiing, you’ll have access to multiple global navigation satellite systems (GPS, GLONASS and Galileo) to track in more challenging environments than GPS alone.
Navigate your next trail with ABC sensors, including an altimeter for elevation data, barometer to monitor weather and 3-axis electronic compass.
Take the guesswork out of your return journey by using this feature to navigate the same route back to your starting point.
Receive emails, texts and alerts right on your watch when paired with your compatible smartphone.
CONNECT IQ STORE
Download custom watch faces, add data fields, and get apps and widgets from the Connect IQ Store app on your compatible smartphone.
SAFETY AND TRACKING FEATURES
When your watch and phone are paired, your live location can be sent to your contacts manually or — during select outdoor activities —automatically with built-in incident detection.
TRAIN YOUR WAY
BUILT-IN SPORTS APPS
Do whatever you love with preloaded activity profiles for running, cycling, swimming, strength training, indoor climbing, virtual running, golf, yoga and more.
This activity profile tracks your HIIT workouts, including AMRAP, EMOM, Tabata and custom. Set the number of rounds, work/rest intervals and more.
Train smarter with VO2 max, an indicator of how you can expect to perform. It even accounts for changes in performance that could be caused by heat or altitude.
DAILY WORKOUT SUGGESTIONS
For training guidance that takes you and your fitness level into account, get daily recommendations based on your current training load and training status.
After each workout, recovery time lets you know when you’ll be ready for another hard workout. It even accounts for training intensity and factors such as stress, daily activity and sleep.
Track the details of every ride with mountain biking metrics plus specialized Grit and Flow measurements that rate trail difficulty and how smoothly you descend, giving you a score to beat next time.
KNOW YOUR BODY
WRIST-BASED HEART RATE
Get estimated heart rate3 data along with alerts if your heart rate stays too high or too low while you’re at rest. Gauge how hard your heart is working during activities.
Heart rate variability is used to calculate your stress level score, so you can see if you’re having a calm, balanced or stressful day.
SLEEP SCORE AND ADVANCED SLEEP MONITORING
Get a full breakdown of your light, deep and REM sleep stages. View it all on a dedicated widget that includes your sleep score and insights.
BODY BATTERY ENERGY MONITORING
Optimize your body’s energy reserves, using heart rate variability, stress, sleep and other data to gauge when you’re ready to be active or when you may need to rest.
For altitude acclimation or sleep monitoring, a Pulse Ox sensor4 uses light beams at your wrist to estimate how well your body is absorbing oxygen.
This feature uses chronological age, your weekly vigorous activity, resting heart rate and BMI to estimate if your body is younger or older than you are. Get tips to lower your fitness age.
Track how many minutes of vigorous activity you’re getting, when you earn them and during what activity. You can even view them as a data field during timed activities.
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.
