Garmin reveals new fitness tracker and rather attractive smart scale


Garmin has revealed two new slices of fitness tech designed to keep you looking your very best.

Its newly refreshed Vivosmart HR activity tracker now has a built-in optical heart rate sensor which will track your ticker throughout the day which, over time, should let you know just how much fitter (or indeed, unhealthier) you’re getting.

The new smart scale looks more attractive than a scale has any right to be, and ticks off everything you’d come to expect, measuring your weight, water percentage, BMI and body fat. It can track up to 16 different users too, though we’d struggle to get that much traffic on it in our houses.

Both the Vivofit HR and Smart Scale will be available in the US from the start of November, with identical $150 (R2,060) price tags. We’ve contacted Garmin for local details, and will update this story accordingly.
