A next-level wearable. This activity tracker/smartwatch is GPS enabled and comes with sport-specific apps. So you get super-accurate data as you run, move, swim or bike, even when you’re away from your phone. A discrete vibration alerts you to incoming texts, emails and calls or that you haven’t been active for hour. Add optional ANT+ sensors like an HRM strap for more detailed metrics. Connect IQ lets you customize it with third-party apps and select a watch face that reflects your personal style.

  • Colour touchscreen is ultra-thin, high-resolution, and readable in bright sun.
  • On-device data includes daily step count, goal countdown, inactivity timer, distance, calories, and time and date.
  • Activity tracker learns your current activity level, creates daily goals and gradually adjusts them upward as you reach milestones.
  • Running metrics include track pace, time and distance.
