PHOENIX – February 9, 2022 – PrePass Safety Alliance announced today that PrePass weigh station bypass notifications will appear on the Garmin® Instinct® 2 – dēzlTM Edition, a rugged smartwatch created for professional truck drivers. The wearable helps increase efficiencies by providing bypass alerts when approaching a weigh station and encourages a healthy lifestyle with all-day health monitoring and workouts for short breaks.

Truck drivers keep America moving, and their health and wellness are an essential aspect of the trucking industry. The fully loaded Instinct 2 – dēzl Edition smartwatch makes it simple for drivers to access a multitude of health metrics directly from their wrist, including:

  • Detailed short-break workout tutorials via Garmin’s dēzl app on a driver’s smartphone
  • All-day monitoring of heart rate[1], stress levels, hydration, and Pulse Ox[2] readings for altitude and sleep monitoring
  • Take a break from the cab with daily step tracking, calories burned, intensity minutes, and more

” PrePass and Garmin share a common goal to provide innovative products and services that promote highway safety, save motor carriers time, and support a healthy lifestyle for drivers,” said Bob Trent, Vice President of Communications for PrePass Safety Alliance. “Integrating PrePass bypass notifications seamlessly into the Instinct 2 – dēzl Edition helps keep driver’s eyes on the road, support the Alliance safety mission.”
