Like many of you, my New Year’s resolution will be to be healthier. One way I will be achieving this is through the assistance of my new Fossil Gen 4 Venture HR Smartwatch. It will help be accountable each day by activity tracking based on guidelines from the American Heart Association & World Health Organization. How cool is that? Part of being healthier is getting more activity in. And since I work 2 jobs, both which are tied to a desk and computer it means I do a lot of sitting and not much movement throughout the day.
This smartwatch comes with Google assistant that will help motivate me and keep me on track for my daily activity goals. I need prompts throughout my day to keep me on track, otherwise, I get caught up in work and forget to move, next thing you know several hours have passed. I know I’m not the only one this happens to. But with the Gen 4 Venture HR Smartwatch, it will prompt you to get up, move and coach you to your health goal. I also like how it helps you maximize your active time with easy to manage notifications, with smart replies to respond quickly on the go. Anything that makes it easier for me to stay on task and hit my goals is appreciated.
Another thing I love about this watch is how it syncs right up with my phone! Everything is right at my fingertips on my iPhone 8 Plus. Don’t have an iPhone? No problem, it’s also compatible with Android phones too. Google Fit has actually created to activity trackers that can be used with the Fossil Gen 4 Venture HR Smartwatch, Heart Points and Move Minutes, both we created with collaboration from the American Heart Association and the World Health Organization.
It does not matter if you chose to use the Heart Points or Move Minute, both will track your activity for you. Plus, they are activity intensity which means you will get better coaching from your app which means you will see better results. It’s not a one size fits all type of app. It is actually tailored through the output your body gives to the smartwatch and then the app turns into information and then returns suggestions/coaching to help encourage you to hit your goals. I just love this! Having actually coaching that is specific to how my body is responding is huge to me. It’s going to help me stay motivated if I’m seeing results from my activity.
Did I mention this little beauty can store your music too? It can. So next time you take a long walk or go out for a run, your music can come along with you. There are so many features with the Gen 4 Venture HR Smartwatch, like having Google Pay available to you. Ever been out on a run and run out of water? I don’t know about you but I typically do not bring my wallet with me. Knowing that you have Google Pay and can stop in and grab some water at a convenience store is a nice little piece of comfort. And it charges wirelessly! No more trying to fit a little itty bitty charger cord into the side of a watch, just place the watch on the wireless charger and it charges. I just love it!
I’m loving my new Fossil Gen 4 Venture HR Smartwatch. Not only is it going to help me kick off my New Year the right way but it also adds a little bling to my everyday look. You can buy your own beautiful Fossil Gen 4 Venture HR Smartwatch from Best Buy.
