Angeion Corporation has signed a deal with Garmin International enabling integration of its exercise programs for weight control, fitness, or athletic performance goals with Garmin’s Forerunner 305 GPS fitness device.

Users can download their unique “New Leaf Active Metabolic Training” profile to their Garmin Forerunner® 305 via the Internet.

New Leaf Active Metabolic Training begins with a 10-15 minute personal metabolic assessment that analyzes the exchange of oxygen and carbon dioxide in the breath along with heart rate over a range of exercise intensities. The assessment results in actual measured calories, fuel efficiency (fat utilization), anaerobic threshold, and peak oxygen consumption. This snapshot of metabolism serves as the basis for designing exercise programs for weight control, fitness, or athletic performance goals. New Leaf assessments are available from a variety of health, fitness, and performance centers throughout North America and in select international markets.

This partnership is a good way for Garmin to tap into the huge North American Fitness market. This will allow Garmin to enter more easily into fitness centers with a compelling offer.
