“The vívomove watches are designed for those who want the connected and health features of a smartwatch with a more fashion-forward look better suited for the office or dressing up,” said Susan Lyman, Garmin vice president of global consumer marketing. “With an extensive selection of bands and metal finishes, it’s a stylish accessory that also keeps tabs on your text messages, energy, stress, sleep and more.”
"The Garmin vívomove is unique in that it has all the features of a smartwatch, which is a part of every influencer's toolkit, but has a classic look of an analog watch for the modern, fashionable woman. So much of an influencer's career is focused on powering their businesses on the go, so having a tech accessory that happens to photograph well is the best of both worlds," says Amber Venz Box, president and co-founder of rewardStyle and LIKEtoKNOW.it, Garmin's leading strategic expert in utilizing fashion influencer marketing at scale.
The vívomove series builds on the previous vívomove HR by adding new advanced wellness features like pulse ox1 and Body Battery™ energy monitoring, connected GPS, and Garmin Pay™ (select models only). The vívomove has a battery life of up to 5 days in smartwatch mode and will keep ticking for an additional week in watch mode.
