“The vívomove series is a unique product line within the Garmin wearable family and we’re excited to expand on it with the vívomove Sport,” said Susan Lyman, Garmin vice president of global consumer marketing. “A smartwatch is only useful if you wear it, and we know that many people still want the look of a traditional timepiece with real hands. With vívomove Sport, you can have the best of both worlds at an accessible price point.”
Style with a twist
The vívomove Sport has the appearance of a traditional watch with the essentials of a smartwatch. It is designed with real ticking watch hands and a hidden display that only appears when needed. Interact with the touchscreen, and the hands dynamically move away.
Inspired by the luxe comfort trend, the vívomove Sport features a silicone band and color-coordinated watch dial in warm colorways and a soft green reminiscent of sophisticated wellness aesthetics. Refined metallic accents add dimension and lend a sleek, contemporary feel. Express yourself by choosing a custom color combination with Your Watch Your Way (coming soon).
