You'll also be able to monitor your physical activity throughout the day with step counting, intensity minutes, and calories burned.

While there's no built-in GPS, you can track distance covered and pace during walks and runs by connecting it to your phone's GPS. As for battery life, Garmin claims the Vivomove Sport can last up to five days in smartwatch mode and six days in watch mode.

The Vivomove Sport is now available to purchase in the U.S. for $180 in black, white, mint green, and brown color options.
