Garmin Shows Off First Touchscreen Hybrid Smartwatch

On Thursday, Garmin International, Inc. announced the vívomove HR, a hybrid smartwatch with activity tracking, Elevate wrist-based heart rate, smart notifications and a touchscreen display.

“Precision hands show the time and dynamically move out of the way for easy viewing of messages, heart rate and more,” the company tells us. “A master of subtlety, the smart display only appears when the user turns their wrist. Style-obsessed, rejoice: The vívomove HR combines the latest and greatest Garmin connectivity, fitness and wellness monitoring features with an elegant, classic design.”

We’re told that the vívomove HR is one of the many new wearables from Garmin being launched in conjunction with IFA in Berlin, Germany, September 1-6.

“When we first introduced the vívomove last year, it was geared towards customers who wanted a beautiful timepiece first and activity tracking functions second,” said Dan Bartel, Garmin vice president of worldwide sales. “With the new vívomove HR, not only is the design as elegant as ever, the wearable technology is cutting edge. We’re the first on the market to offer a hybrid smartwatch with both wrist-based heart rate and a digital touchscreen display. And you get all of that without losing the classic, timeless look of an analog watch.”
