Garmin celebrates Star Wars Day with Mandalorian and Baby Yoda watches

To mark Star Wars Day (May 4), Garmin has released a pair of new Vivofit Jr 3 fitness trackers based on characters from The Mandalorian TV series.

The first watch, themed after Grogu (aka Baby Yoda) has a light green band, while the second, based on the Mandalorian himself, is steel blue and marked with the bounty hunter’s slogan: “This is the way”.

There are also different Star Wars face designs, plus a mobile companion app to encourage kids to get up and move. With Skywalker Saga – a Star Wars Adventure app installed, kids can unlock visual story chapters by completing activity goals.

An elegant watch for a more civilized age

There are no adult-themed watches this time around, but in October 2019 Garmin released a more subdued pair of wearables based on Rey and Darth Vader, which are still available to buy.

Not only do Legacy Saga watches feature Star Wars faces and subtle details like engravings on the back of the case, they also allow you to unlock certain badges in Garmin Collect that you can’t access with a regular Fenix ​​or Forerunner.

Don’t need a new watch? You can always get into the spirit by watching the latest trailer for the upcoming Obi-Wan Kenobi series, which teases Vader’s return.
