AccuWeather MinuteCast is available on the Garmin vivoactive HR smartwatch

AccuWeather, the global provider of weather information and digital media, today announced AccuWeather MinuteCast, which is currently available on Garmin devices such as the Forerunner and fēnix running and training watches, is also available on the newly launched Garmin vivoactive HR smartwatch.

The Garmin vivoactive HR, a GPS smartwatch with wrist heart rate technology, enables users to measure the intensity of activity, monitor progress, and keep track of activity throughout the day by way of monitoring sleep, floors climbed, steps taken, and much more. Active users also have the ability to easily access AccuWeather’s MinuteCast on their smartwatch, providing them with the most accurate minute-by-minute precipitation forecasts for the next two hours, specific to their exact street address or GPS location. 

“AccuWeather is pleased to partner with Garmin on another ground-breaking addition to their wearables lineup,” said Steven Smith, President of Digital Media at AccuWeather. “Making it fast and easy for active Garmin users to access unique hyper local, minute-by-minute forecasts on their smartwatch with AccuWeather MinuteCast enables them to make informed decisions on the go while running, biking, skiing, and more.”


In Asia, the patented AccuWeather MinuteCast is available to people living and travelling in Japan.
