While some wearable manufacturers have been struggling, Garmin has been going from strength to strength. Its success lies in the quality and wide range of fitness and sports gear. The company has grown quite a bit since it was established in the not too distant 1989. Its first product was a GPS unit which sold for $2,500. Thankfully, prices have come down quite a bit since then!
The company’s wearables strategy is centered on purpose-built devices for consumers who want to measure and enhance their active lifestyle pursuits. This year we didn’t see too many new devices. The coronavirus pandemic is to blame, along with chip shortages and energy supply disruptions in some Asian countries.
It is the time when so many of us set New Year resolutions. This typically gives us more incentive to get and stay in shape. Whatever you’re into – running, cycling, swimming, golfing, walking, or simply being more active – there’s a Garmin to help you with that. The wearables giant has some of the best sports watches and fitness bands out there.
For the average person who does the occasional run, cycle or swim, the Vivoactive 4 is the best Garmin fitness watch. It comes with pretty much everything they will need to track their activity and there’s an option with built-in storage for music, too.
But if you’re after something more discreet and in the form of a fitness band, our suggestion would be to opt for the Vivosmart 4. In additional to the usual smarts it has a Pulse Ox sensor.
