Garmin has released a brand new activity badge in celebration of the Chinese New Year, and those of you who are avid collectors of these badges may get your hands on it today.
It has been almost a month since the date-specific badge was last made available for purchase. In point of fact, there were two that occurred on December 31 and January 1 and were titled “Finish Strong” and “Start Strong,” respectively. Users were expected to log an activity for both the eve of New Year’s and the day of the holiday itself.
Now we have two more, specifically for the evening of the Chinese New Year and the next day. The first one was delivered on the 24th of January, and the second one can be obtained today.
Users are required to register any activity they complete during the day and sync their data with Garmin Connect in order to earn a badge, just like they were required to do around a month ago. Hey, this might even provide you with a chance to reevaluate the fitness goals you set for yourself at the beginning of the year!
The Spring Festival, also known as the Chinese New Year, is an annual celebration that has a history that dates back more than 4,000 years. The festivities will continue all the way up until the 8th of February. On the last day of the event, there will also be something called the Lantern Festival.
According to the Chinese calendar, the year 2020 will be known as the “year of the rat.” The design of today’s badge takes this into account and reflects it.
For whatever reason, the midsection of yesterday’s badge contained an illustration of a Koi fish. The reasons for this aren’t exactly evident to us at this point. The year before, 2012, was known as the Year of the Pig.
It is possible that the challenge is not available on the Garmin smartphone app where you are because it depends on your location. It is possible that you will need to wait till the date has passed for you.
It will be some time before there is another badge that is particular to a date. The next one will take place on March 8th, which is also known as International Women’s Day.
