How to use Garmin vivosmart 5 for health, fitness and wellness?
We explain below how you'll make the best use of this fitness tracker to optimize your health.
FITNESS METRICS TRACKING
First and foremost, vivosmart 5 tracks your steps, intensity minutes, calories burned and other fitness metrics. You get all these stats on your wrist and can take a deeper dive on the Garmin Connect app, which is the best in the business.
BUILT-IN SPORTS APPS
There are plenty of pre-loaded sport apps, which make it a breathe to switch up your workout routine. The sport apps change the activity profiles for walking, running, yoga, Pilates, cardio, mindful breathing, strength training, etc.
SYNC WITH GARMIN CONNECT
The biggest reason why you would choose Garmin over the competition may be the Garmin Connect app. You can see all your health and fitness information all in one place. The app is also a thriving online community where people can connect, compete and share their healthy lifestyle experiences.
WRIST-BASED HEART RATE
The vivosmart 5 constantly monitors your heart rate. You can set some high and low alerts. During exercise, the heart rate is one of the key measures in terms of intensity. The heart rate translates into zones, from 1 (resting) to 5 (most rigorous). This is important and helpful for weight loss. Recommended intensity minutes are as follows:
- Moderate aerobic activity =150 min / week
- Vigorous aerobic activity = 75 min / week
This algorithm uses chronological age, your weekly vigorous activity, resting heart rate and BMI or body fat percentage to estimate if your body is younger or older than you are. And you can get tips to lower your fitness age. Get competitive with friends and family.
BODY BATTERY™ ENERGY MONITORING
Exclusive Garmin feature, this measures your body’s energy levels throughout the day so you can find the best times for activity and rest.
Most of the time, we're able to tell if we are stressed or not. However, sometimes that's not the case. The vivosmart 5 gives you insight whether or not you’re having a calm, balanced or stressful day. Relax reminders will even prompt you to do a short breathing activity when you’re feeling stressed.
PULSE OX SENSOR
This measure has been critical during the past 2 years. Use the Pulse Ox sensor to spot-check your blood oxygen saturation at any point during the day, or for part of the night as you sleep, to show how well your body is absorbing oxygen.
Breathing exercises are a proven method to mitigate stress. Read our article here to learn more tips to reduce stress. You can start a breathwork activity, and this watch will track your stress and respiration to help you get a better understanding of how you’re breathing.
See how you’re breathing throughout the day, during sleep and during breathwork and yoga activities.
SLEEP SCORE AND ADVANCED SLEEP MONITORING
A good night sleep is extremely important for good health. Without enough sleep, the brain cannot function properly and there are many other benefits.
With this fitness tracker, you get a score for your sleep’s quality and insights on how you can do better through the Garmin Connect™ app. Even keep track of the different sleep stages as well as heart rate, stress, Pulse Ox and respiration.
You can manually log your daily fluid intake with vivosmart 5. You can also set goals and the watch will give you reminders. The hydration goal adjusts automatically based on how much sweat you lose during 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. Even see and log details on your wrist.
Vivosmart 5 does not come with GPS. However, you can connect it to your smartphone’s GPS so you can get accurate tracking during outdoor activities like walks, rides and runs. If you don't connect it, the data is stored on the watch and syncs to the app when there is Bluetooth signal. In that case, some of the data like the map are not recorded and shown on the app.
If you really want and need a GPS watch, we recommend one of the Garmin Venu models, such as:
The Vivosmart 5 has smart features such as receiving emails, texts and alerts. All you have to do is pair it with your smartphone. You can even respond to texts if you have an Android™ smartphone.
SAFETY AND TRACKING FEATURES
When connected to your phone, incident detection (during select outdoor activities) and Assistance sends messages and live location information to emergency contacts, which you set up in the Garmin Connect app.
Vivosmart 5 would not be a complete fitness tracker without a proper water-rating of 5 ATM, making it perfect for a swim or shower.
