Garmin and MTN Nigeria have partnered to introduce a range of health and fitness devices to help boost fitness standards while maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
There is an increased focus around the world to be healthy and more active, and through innovation and technology Garmin created a range of wellness devices that enrich the lives of our customers through wearable location and communications technology.
The range of watches track, monitor and record daily health activities to motivate you towards a healthier lifestyle. Some are also smart devices that pair via Bluetooth(r) with your smartphone to receive current weather conditions, forecasts, voice call/text message notifications, emails and more – right on your Garmin fitness device.
“Our Garmin watches support various mobile devices operating on the Android, iOS or Microsoft platforms giving all Nigerian customers the chance to get fit and healthy while staying connected,” says Mike Clarke , business development manager for Garmin Sub-Saharan Africa.
Through Garmin’s mobile app, Garmin Connect Mobile, members are able to review, analyse and share their activities right from their smart phone device. Now you can focus on your fitness and healthy living goals as all the data you rely on is easy to retrieve and view on the app.
“Building off of our partnership and recent launch with MTN Ghana, we are excited to extend our footprint in Africa and partner with the leading telecommunications provider to bring these innovative solutions into Nigeria where we have seen an increasing interest and adoption of healthy lifestyles by many people,” says Jenna Chisnall, marcomms manager for Garmin Sub-Saharan Africa.
Products include the vivoFit 3, vivoSmart HR, vivoActive HR, Forerunner 35, Fenix 3 sapphire HR and the Garmin Index smart scale.
In partnership with MTN, these wearable tech watches will be made available through selected MTN Service Centres in Lagos, Port Harcourt and Abuja. “Each new customer will be delighted to know that with every Garmin device purchased they will receive 300MB monthly for 3 months from MTN to get them on their way to a healthier lifestyle,” says MTN chief marketing officer, Rahul De.
