Garmin has to react fairly soon.
This partnership with Actigraph is a good start. Actigraph, right now, does not have a ECG/EKG product but you have to be sure that they and Garmin have been looking into it. As I discovered the ‘chipsets’ for getting the ECG/EKG readings are readily available and not that expensive. So, it is not a huge hill that has to be climbed.
Actigraph, right now, appears to marketing high-end activity trackers — albeit without GPS. So, quite a bit of overlap, but also areas that they can cooperate on to improve.
Good move. I am keeping my fingers crossed.
