Garmin introduces first 4G smartwatch with 4G for safety features


Garmin has introduced its first GPS smartwatch with 4G connectivity for safety features, music downloads and text messages, with no need for a phone. The vívoactive 3 Music–connected by Verizon is designed to help users stay connected, even in case of an emergency. Its in-built safety features include assistance and incident detection. 

Holding the watch’s button for five second will trigger a discreet message to pre-loaded emergency contacts and and continuously share the user’s real-time location with them. The built-in incident detection feature senses when the wearer experiences an impact while walking, running or cycling, and will also automatically notify pre-loaded emergency contacts of the user’s real-time whereabouts. With LiveTrack, users can also let friends and family follow their activities in real-time. 

The smartwatch also sports contactless payment service Garmin Pay, wrist-based heart rate Elevate and over 15 built-in indoor and outdoor sports apps including yoga, cardio and strength training, It also has the Garmin Chroma Display, Corning Gorilla Glass 3, the ALT1210 chipset from Altair Semiconductor and a battery life of up to 5 days in smartwatch mode or up to 4 hours when in use. 

Otherwise, the new smartwatch has the same features as the vívoactive 3 Music, giving people the ability to download songs or playlists, including those from third-party music services like Deezer and Spotify (coming soon). 

The device will become available in the first quarter. Prices will be announced then.
