The Contactless Payments is a feature that personally I like because for example if I’m running, cycling or at the gym, I don’t need to carry my wallet and I can still be able to buy things doing the payment with the Garmin Pay feature.

A health & fitness smartwatch that lasts up to 4 days and features 24/7, phone music, apps, coaching and more. You can get personalized workouts that play on your wrist and a coach that can motivate you through each move and adapt based on your feedback. On cool feature that I love is the female health, women’s will be able to use the watch and the Fitbit app to check their period, record symptoms and compare to other women’s health stats like sleep, activity, and weight. It’s swimproof, water resistant up to 50 meters, perfect to wear at the pool or under the rain. Track laps location and calories burned.
