Both the Garmin Fix 5 and the Forerunner 935 now provide tracking for stress and rep counts

Long-awaited software updates for the Forerunner 935 and Fenix 5 will be coming soon, according to rumors.

Today, Garmin made the announcement that its two high-end sports trackers will soon be able to measure stress levels throughout the day as well as count reps and sets while working out at the gym. These are the same features that were presented for the first time on the Vivosmart 3 back in April.

Stress is an inescapable aspect of modern life that cannot be avoided. It is your body’s way of responding to any form of demand or threat by producing a torrent of hormones, including adrenaline and cortisol, which rouse the body and prepare it for emergency action. This happens automatically whenever your body senses a demand or threat. Monitoring your stress levels and rate of recovery throughout the day gives you the ability to determine how much of your day is spent under stressful conditions and how quickly your body is able to recover.

In order to determine this information, Garmin analyzes the readings of your heart rate variability, which measures the minute variations in the amount of time that passes between each successive heartbeat. The technology known as Firstbeat is responsible for the in-depth analysis.

The all-day stress monitoring function may be monitored on a daily basis using the Fenix 5 or Forerunner 935 watch, and the results can be viewed over time using the Garmin Connect mobile app. You will be given sessions of deep breathing and mindful relaxation to help you deal with any anxiety you may have.

In addition to providing round-the-clock monitoring, each of the two gadgets will also come equipped with a brand new strength training program designed just for gym rats. This method involves free weight and bodyweight workouts and involves a combination of manual tagging of sets and automatic counting of reps. Additionally, the update adds the capability to monitor aerobic workouts such as boot camp sessions and high-intensity interval training.

There is no shadow of a doubt that this is fantastic news for anyone who already owns a Fenix 5 or a Forerunner 935. Even though they are expensive, both of these watches are the best option for those who are extremely dedicated to their athletic pursuits.

Although Garmin has stated that the new features would be available in September, we do not yet have a specific release date.
