Garmin rescued its disclosure of the latest Vivosmart Fitness Tracker for IFA this year. For Vivosmart 4, the company adds a "pulse ox2 oximeter" that measures the oxygen saturation in the blood.
You may have tried an oximeter when a doctor or nurse cut a small accessory for your finger. In Garmin's case, the oximeter tries to determine how well a person is sleeping. It can also determine if they stop breathing during sleep, which means they have sleep apnea. It is the largest hardware addition to tracking, although the company also updates its software to build up its sleep monitoring system, allowing users to check in on sleep quality when awake. Sleep definitely looks like the focus of this launch.
Of course, the other typical things like heart rate and activities measure. It should last up to seven days on a single charge and pair with phones over Bluetooth. Wearers will be able to receive alerts and, with Android phones, respond to text via preset messages. The device is listed on the Garmin website now with an availability estimated for three to five weeks. It costs $ 1
