Garmin India has identified five key health indicators to enable Garmin users to track and manage their health profile. They include heart rate, respiratory rate, blood oxygen saturation, sleep monitoring and stress monitoring.

The Garmin Connect app also offers users access to multiple training plans and various training exercises that can be done at home. Key physiological data are then recorded during workouts to allow efficient health monitoring.
