Garmin has launched a premium fitness band in India dubbed Garmin Vivosmart 5. The fitness band is available in three colours, and customers can choose between small, medium, and large fitness bands. The main band, on the other hand, still features a pill-shaped design, while rival brands like Xiaomi and Huawei have started offering a large square-shaped band. It works with Android and iPhones and users can even view text messages, calendar notifications, social media alerts, news alerts, and more. Garmin says the Vivosmart 5 even gives users a personalised 'Morning Report', which includes information like sleep score and step goals.
Garmin Vivosmart 5 Price in India
The Garmin Vivosmart 5 comes with a price tag of Rs 14,990. Customers can choose between Mint and Black colours and it's available to purchase on the Garmin store, Amazon, Flipkart, and select stores. Customers can also enjoy sale offers on Amazon and Flipkart.
At Rs 14,990, the Garmin Vivosmart 5 directly competes against the Fitbit Charge 5, which costs Rs 13,900 (on Amazon). However, several notable smartwatches like the OnePlus Watch come with a similar price tag.
