Phones Canada is excited to share the latest smartwatch announcement from Garmin. Introducing the Garmin Vivoactive 5, a new member of the affordable “mainstream” smartwatch family. With a revised design and improved features, the Vivoactive 5 offers great value at a lower price.
The Garmin Vivoactive 5 is available in the US for $299.99, which is lower than the previous models, the Vivoactive 4 and 4S. It features a 42mm case, making it slightly larger than the 4S but with reduced overall thickness and weight. The watch has an anodized aluminum bezel and a fiber-reinforced polymer case. The silicone band comes in black, ivory, navy, or orchid colors, matching the watch’s design.
One of the most impressive upgrades is the 1.2-inch AMOLED touchscreen, inspired by the Venu roster. The display supports optional Always-On technology and has a resolution of 390 x 390 pixels, providing a great viewing experience.
Battery life is a crucial factor in smartwatches, and the Vivoactive 5 delivers exceptional performance. It offers an astonishing 11 days of battery life in “smartwatch mode,” surpassing the already impressive 8-day endurance of the Vivoactive 4. Even with GPS connectivity, the watch can last for 21 hours, outperforming competitors from Apple and Samsung.
The Vivoactive 5 is packed with health and fitness features. It can automatically monitor your sleep, including naps, and track variables like body battery energy, blood oxygen saturation, stress levels, respiration, hydration, and heart rate throughout the day. Additionally, the watch has a new sleep coach feature and a Wheelchair Mode for specific activities, catering to a wider range of users.
With its attractive price point and comprehensive features, the Garmin Vivoactive 5 offers excellent value for money. It rivals the more expensive Venu 3, which only boasts a slightly more premium design and a built-in speaker and microphone. Stay tuned for more updates from Phones Canada on the latest technology releases.
