Garmin is now aware of the situation. Its hand washing timer and reminder widget may be found here

Hand washing apps have been released by a number of wearables manufacturers. Garmin has now chosen to join in on the fun.

Apple has a hand-washing app, Fitbit has a hand-washing clock face, and Google and Samsung each have their own solution. Garmin is not a company that can afford to be left behind for long. It’s better to be late than never.

All of these have been introduced in the fight against COVID-19’s proliferation. Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’re probably aware that you should wash your hands frequently, especially if you’ve been outside. This is the World Health Organization’s official recommendation (WHO). One of the most efficient ways to destroy viruses on your hands is to use soap and water or an alcohol-based hand massage.

It’s finally time to talk about Garmin’s new hand washing timer and reminder widget! It was launched on May 20th and is simply titled Handwashing.

The software is simple to operate. If you download it from the Connect IQ store, your watch will vibrate every two hours by default to remind you to do the deed. You may also make a pre-meal reminder to wash your hands or choose your own frequency (30 minutes, 1,2,3 hours).

A quick demonstration of proper hand washing will also be shown on the watch. You’ll then be given a 30-second countdown to ensure that the job is completed completely. Straightforward and to the point. There’s also the option to turn off the reminder and bypass the instruction to get to the 30 second timer right away.

The timer also tells you how long it’s been since you cleaned your hands. You can no longer justify your poor hygiene habits.

The programme is compatible with a wide range of devices. The Forerunner 245, 645, 945, Fenix 5 Plus and above, MARQ series, Vivoactive 4, Venue, Rey, and a few more are among them. If you do decide to install it, keep in mind that it runs in the background and may affect battery life.
