If fitness tracking was not enough, Garmin decided to step-up the game by pairing hands with University of Kansas Medical Center and adding features to dive deeper into sleep statistics. As the Garmin Connect application is slated to get an update, new features for breaking down your sleep pattern is an appealing feature.
Unlike previous sleep pattern tracking, Garmin’s new feature allows for better understanding of the amount of time spent while sleeping and amount of disrupts that added to the lack of sleep.
Now from where all this new information is coming? Garmin has put in heart rate variability along with previously used heart rate tracking and accelerometer to let the users have this amazing new feature in their wearables.
According to the company, the use of heart rate variability makes the numbers of sleep stages much more accurate and precise. Though now users might feel tensed about the difference in values, Garmin reassures the values to be extremely accurate.
Vivoactive 3, Vivoactive 3 Music, Forerunner 645, Forerunner 935, Vivosmart 3, Vivomove HR, Forerunner 645 Music are among the first of Garmin’s devices that will benefit from the update.
Sleep stages from Garmin mean there is a new competitor in the market who can challenge the likes of Fitbit who has impressed a lot of customers with features related to sleeping.
