The Garmin Vivosmart 5 brings a slew of health monitoring features such as 24/7 heart rate monitoring, resting heart statistics, abnormal heart rate alerts, blood oxygen saturation levels, respiration rate, sleep tracking, and more. It can also provide data on your daily stress, energy, hydration, and women’s health.
Additionally, the Garmin Vivosmart 5 includes features to track your outdoor activities. It can show you the calories burnt, distance travelled, intensity minutes, etc. and set auto goals during your fitness regime. Moreover, it bundles in training, planning, and analysis features like HR Zones, HR alerts, HR calories, V02 Max, and interval training, among others.
Garmin says the Vivosmart 5 is designed to be worn all day and is shower-proof and swim-proof. The battery is reported to last for seven days on a single charge with normal usage. Extensive usage of the pulse oximeter or sleep tracker might deplete the battery faster.
