Garmin advocates healthy living with #HealthIsAChoice campaign

Health and wellness have become many Filipinos’ top priorities these past months as people look to boost their immunity against the pandemic. Despite the growing emphasis on achieving a healthier lifestyle, however, many find it difficult, if not fail altogether, to meet their health, wellness and fitness goals. With the extended lockdowns changing people’s habits and limiting physical activities, more people face problems with their metabolism, which plays a critical role in maintaining good health. 

Garmin, the leading brand of smart wearable devices with more than 60 million active users worldwide, uses health technology to accurately track users’ data and scientifically quantify their health status and guide them in achieving their health goals. Garmin’s 2021 Asian User Health Data Report, which tracks Garmin smart wearable users’ data from January to September 2021 using the smartwatches’ Resting Calories and Active Calories features, reveals lower active calories and higher stress levels among people in most Asia countries compared to last year, which could be attributed to the pandemic and restricted outdoor activities. The study shows the Resting Calories of men and women in Asia 55 years old and above dropped significantly. Older users, however, clocked more Weekly Intensity Minutes than younger users, indicating growing health consciousness as people get older.

Garmin’s study indicates people with a higher average Weekly Intensity Minutes consumed more calories — both Active and Resting Calories — emphasizing the importance of exercise in maintaining good metabolism, which in turn improves one’s health. To encourage Filipinos to choose a healthier lifestyle, Garmin launches a new campaign aimed at helping users stay motivated and on track in their fitness goals. The #HealthIsAChoice #ChooseGarmin campaign encourages a scientific approach to pursuing health goals for the long term, with smartwatches as a way to track progress, maintain good metabolism and keep motivated. With this campaign, Garmin hopes to make exercising and leading a healthier lifestyle an easier choice for more Filipinos.

A sedentary lifestyle has been a pressing concern among a growing number of Filipinos even before the pandemic. Garmin’s latest report reveals Filipinos average 42.82 Intensity Minutes, the fourth lowest average values in the SEA region with Hong Kong leading at 53 minutes.  The extended indoor living further limited people’s activities these past months, and specialists pointed this increases the risks for severe COVID-19 symptoms and other diseases.

Filipinos ranked fourth globally in terms of being sleep-deprived, according to a study by Sleep Cycle in 2019. The report revealed Filipinos sleep an average of 6.5 hours a day versus the recommended 7 or more hours of sleep for adults. In terms of stress level, the country was second only to Indonesia in having the highest stress level in Asia, according to Garmin’s 2021 report. Staying physically active and having adequate sleep are important in boosting metabolism and health. Improving blood oxygen health, avoiding excessive stress, building or maintaining muscle mass and maintaining proper hydration are also vital.

Garmin Asia Senior Director Mr. Scoppen Lin shared, “The public’s awareness of health has improved significantly, and a lot of it has to do with the pandemic. In 2021, Garmin’s health and wellness product lines, which feature comprehensive health functions such as blood oxygen monitoring, had a strong growth of approximately 30 percent in the Asian markets.”

Garmin’s smart wearables help users keep an eye on health factors by monitoring sleep and stress, blood oxygen saturation, heart rate and respiration rate. Garmin encourages more health enthusiasts and fitness rookies to #ChooseGarmin in their self-training and physical activity monitoring and measurement. 

To motivate users to continue exercising and boost their metabolism toward achieving better health and fitness, Garmin’s devices have sensors and trackers that show users’ progress. These help users see how their bodies are reacting to physical activities. Seeing positive results can give them a sense of achievement and motivate them further in their health and fitness journey.
