Women’s health tracking features on most smartwatches are restricted to period tracking, but Garmin is now doing you one better. The company has introduced a new pregnancy tracking feature on some of its most popular wearables, including the Garmin Venu, Vivoactive, Forerunner, Fenix, and Vivomove series.
Although there are many pregnancy tracking apps out there, Garmin is the first fitness brand to marry the feature with a smartwatch. It’s designed to track a pregnancy from start to finish, straight from your wrist.
