  • Garmin has introduced a new hybrid analog smartwatch called the Vivomove Sport.
  • The Vivomove sport features real ticking watch hands, with a hidden touchscreen display.
  • It offers a wide range of health and wellness tools, including stress tracking and sleep monitoring.

The impressive Venu 2 Plus isn't the only new smartwatch that Garmin launched at its CES 2022 press conference. Alongside the Venu 2 Plus, Garmin has also announced an affordable new hybrid smartwatch dubbed Vivomove Sport.

Even though the Vivomove Sport is only an entry-level smartwatch, it offers many of the health features that are available on the best Garmin smartwatches. These include stress tracking, advanced sleep monitoring, hydration logging, and 24/7 heart-rate tracking. The Body Battery energy monitoring feature shows your body's current energy level to help you schedule workouts and decide when you should slow down.

Additionally, the Vivomove Sport comes with several features to "enable an active lifestyle." You get built-in sports apps for yoga, strength, Pilates, cardio, cycling, treadmill, and more. You'll also be able to monitor your physical activity throughout the day with step counting, intensity minutes, and calories burned.

While there's no built-in GPS, you can track distance covered and pace during walks and runs by connecting it to your phone's GPS. As for battery life, Garmin claims the Vivomove Sport can last up to five days in smartwatch mode and six days in watch mode.

The Vivomove Sport is now available to purchase in the U.S. for $180 in black, white, mint green, and brown color options.

Protect your kids by setting up a supervised YouTube account

YouTube Kids has been around since 2015 and has grown into a great place for children to explore what YouTube has to offer safely. In 2021, the company is expanding ways for younger viewers to see more of what's available from the streaming service, along with a more mature interface with supervised accounts. Instead of a separate app, these accounts will use the official YouTube app, so knowing how to set up a supervised account for kids on Youtube is important. If you want to protect your child from some of the less than appropriate content that can be seen on YouTube, then you'll want to be sure to have the supervised account properly set up. YouTube announced supervised accounts as a way for kids aged 9+ to see to more of what the service offers while still under the guidelines set by their parent. So, whether you have picked up one of the best phones for kids or maybe a tablet like the Lenovo Smart Tab M10 HD that has Google's Kids Space for your child, here&#

Samsung Galaxy S21 FE review: Better phone, worse price

This upgrade is an uphill battle for Samsung thanks to steep competition. It's hard to believe that it's been a year and a half since Samsung redefined the "flagship killer" concept with the Galaxy S20 FE . At the time, the phone blew us away with its quality, delivering a true flagship experience for a significantly lower price than a "regular" Galaxy S20. The Galaxy S21 FE was rumored to be released the entire second half of 2021, and now it's finally here. The Galaxy S21 FE debuts with some of the expected upgrades over its predecessor but still retains many of the points that made the S20 FE a more affordable device. You won't find a brand new camera array on this phone when compared to 2020's device — that's a 12MP sensor for the main and ultra-wide lenses, while an 8MP sensor still resides behind the 3X telephoto lens — but Samsung has upgraded the styling to be more in line with the Galaxy S21 and the rumored look of the Galaxy

PS5 restocks: Here are the latest PS5 stock updates & how to find one

PS5 stock is selling out fast, so be sure to have your credit card ready. Looking to buy a PS5 ? Well, so are millions of other people. It doesn't help that stock levels remain really tight, even nearly a year after its launch. Every time a retailer puts stock up for sale, it sells out super quickly. The longest we here at Android Central have seen PS5s stay in stock is between 15 to 20 minutes (often just a few minutes, though). That's also at random times, so finding a PS5 is a truly challenging task. Sony warned it will be hard to find stock throughout the year and well into 2022, but retailers promise more are coming and that Sony has secured additional semiconductor chips to make them. In our PS5 review, we called the system a technical marvel with a groundbreaking controller. And after spending a few months with the PS5, it's nearly impossible to go back to the PS4. Everything about the PS5 is better , from the games to the DualSense haptic feedback and adaptive
