  • Train your way with built-in sports apps at the wrist.
  • Smart notifications2 so you don’t miss out on what matters.
  • Push boundaries, but stay on track with access to more satellites.
  • Understand your body better with 24/7 health monitoring.

ENGINEERED FOR ENDURANCE

This rugged watch is water-rated to 100 metres and is thermal and shock resistant. Plus, with a fibre-reinforced polymer case and chemically strengthened, scratch-resistant Corning® Gorilla® Glass, this device is built to endure.

DESIGNED TO DO YOU

Bold colours, high-contrast displays and size options let you show the world that you do things your own way.

GET MORE BATTERY OUT OF LIFE

Go longer than ever with solar charging with unlimited battery life in smartwatch mode1. Plus, power manager lets you extend battery life by controlling what settings and sensors draw power.

Track every adventure.


MULTI-GNSS SUPPORT
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.


ABC SENSORS
Navigate your next trail with ABC sensors, including an altimeter for elevation data, barometer to monitor weather and 3-axis electronic compass.


TRACBACK® ROUTING
Take the guesswork out of your return journey by using this feature to navigate the same route back to your starting point.

Live connected.


SMART NOTIFICATIONS
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.


GARMIN PAY™ CONTACTLESS PAYMENTS
Breeze through checkout lines and select transit systems with Garmin Pay contactless payments through participating providers.


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 Detection3.


CALENDAR VIEW
Easily see your plans for the day with a dedicated calendar screen when paired with your compatible smartphone.


SYNC WITH THE GARMIN CONNECT™ APP
See your health and fitness information all in one place. The Garmin Connect app on your compatible smartphone is a thriving online community where people on the go can connect, compete and share.

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.


HIIT WORKOUTS
This activity profile tracks your HIIT workouts, including AMRAP, EMOM, Tabata and custom. Set the number of rounds, work/rest intervals and more.


VO2 MAX
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.


RECOVERY TIME
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.


MTB DYNAMICS
Track the details of every ride with mountain biking metrics plus specialised 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 rate4 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.


STRESS TRACKING
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
Optimise 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.


PULSE OX
For altitude acclimation or sleep monitoring, a Pulse Ox sensor5 uses light beams at your wrist to estimate how well your body is absorbing oxygen.


FITNESS AGE
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.


INTENSITY MINUTES
Track how many minutes of vigorous activity you’re getting, when you earn them and during which 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.
