Commenting on the launch, Ali Rizvi, National Sales Manager Garmin India said, “Garmin has launched this smartwatch with music, keeping in mind the effect and impact music plays while users are engaged in workouts, exercises or sports. It adds fun to the activity, motivates the user to exert more, and thoroughly enjoy the activity. Music with exercising is a stress buster, and the combination can help derive the maximum benefits.”
