Is this The Secret To Less Stress?
Fitness trackers come and go, but there’s something to be said for one that monitors mental and emotional wellbeing as well as the physical. Cue Garmin’s new Vivosmart 3 activity tracker. The watch – ultra-slim, plain black and goes with your entire wardrobe – records everything from steps, sleep and calories to aerobic health (VO2 max, in technical terms), heart rate and reps. You don’t even need to tell it when you stop and start a workout.
The best part, though, is this – beyond all the active stuff, it comes with a breathing exercise, activated via a click of the wrist, and is proven to encourage relaxation and lower stress (we’ve tried it). It also pinpoints lifestyle patterns that could contribute to those lifeis-awful-i-can’t-cope-any-longer moments.
Smart, right? There’s more besides – a battery life of up to five days, and it’s both swimming- and shower-proof. Your new workout BFF. The mind boggles.
