Garmin now lets you track periods with its wearables
Garmin Connect app gets a new ‘Menstrual Tracking Feature’ for female users.
Wearable maker Garmin announced a new feature for that allows its female users to track their periods.
The Menstrual Cycle Tracking feature on Garmin Connect app allows one to track their period, log symptoms, and get educational health insights, Garmin notes in its official release. The comprehensive feature allows women with active lifestyles to track their cycle, while also checking for regular symptoms to adjust their diet, activities, and understand their fertile window.
Users can also opt-in to get reminders for their periods and fertility cycles through the app. Fitness apps for Fitbit and Apple already offer features for users to track their period cycles. Getting started on this requires one to sign in to Garmin Connect from their phone or desktop.
Once you're in you can select 'Health Stats' from the main menu and select 'Menstrual Cycle' from the drop-down menu. Complete the setup with the required details and start logging in your data.
The feature is currently compatible with Forerunner 645 Music, vivoactive 3, vivoactive 3 Music, and fenix 5 Plus Series. More devices will be added soon.
