Functionss of Garmin Watch

Although there are several series of Garmin Watch based on the main functions, the details of the functions carried by different models will be slightly different. The following will introduce a variety of exclusive rich functions.

① Satellite type: a necessary function for obtaining position information.

If the main purpose of wearing is for navigation, it is necessary to pay attention to the type of satellite supported by the navigation system; This function is especially important for sports such as mountaineering or golf, where local information is needed. In addition to GPS navigation, the watches also support satellite models such as QZSS, GLONASS and Galileo. Although GPS receivers are prone to errors due to factors such as weather and building shelter, they can be paired with other satellite positioning systems to improve navigation accuracy.

② Optical heart rate sensor: monitors heartbeat.

If you want to measure the heart rate during normal and exercise, it is recommended to buy a machine equipped with optical heart rate monitoring. In this way, we can not only confirm our health status, but also improve our exercise style and improve the training effect. The idea is to measure heart rate by touching the back of the wrist and shining a green beam of light on hemoglobin in the blood. In addition, there are also special functions such as automatic switching between monitoring heartbeat in motion and at rest, as well as filtering out noise, to greatly improve the accuracy of data results.

③ Running dynamic sensing: Recommended for runners.

Many runners who want to improve their running posture and efficiency will choose to wear Garmin, because the brand has launched watches with built-in running dynamic sensing function; The function calculates touchdown time, balance, stride length, movement parameters and other indicators, and clearly marks them with data and colors. As long as you can use the built-in sensing function of the watch, you can feel comfortable running without a trainer alone.

④ Waterproof function: suitable for swimming and water sports.

If you're looking for a smart watch for swimming or diving, check the water resistance level and the water depth the watch can withstand. According to the waterproof grade definition of Garmin, Vivo series marked as 5ATM and able to dive into 50m water depth can be selected when swimming. For water activities such as surfing, you can use Instict and fenix at more than 10ATM. DescentMK series is recommended if you want to wear it while snorkeling.

⑤ With music, mobile payment and other functions.

In addition to recording and motion-related functions, some Garmin watches also have built-in music playback and mobile payment functions. While there aren't many playable models available, the built-in watch can store up to 500 songs, making it easy to enjoy music anytime, anywhere, just by using a Bluetooth headset.
