Sports on the Go or at Home
Built-in GPS gives you the freedom to take your activities outside. During a run, walk or ride, vívosport is able to track distance, time and speed or pace and even map it out for you on Garmin Connect. It’s also preloaded with additional timed activities, including strength training and cardio, so you can work out the way you like.
Daily Fitness Monitoring and Stress Tracking
Monitor key aspects of your fitness and wellness with help from Elevate 24/7 wrist-based heart rate monitoring. With the heart rate data it collects, vívosport is able to estimate your VO2 max and fitness age, 2 indicators of physical fitness that can improve over time with regular exercise. It also tracks your HRV (heart rate variability), which is used to calculate and display your stress level. The goal is to make you aware when physical or emotional sources cause your stress level to rise so you can find a way to relieve the pressure.
Once paired with your compatible smartphone, you’ll have access to a full suite of smart features that bring convenience and handy features to your wrist. Get text messages, social media updates, emails and more, find your phone, access music controls and use the LiveTrack feature to let friends follow your activities. With auto sync, your finished activities will even automatically upload to Garmin Connect.
Share and Compete
Syncing your activities to Garmin Connect is for more than just storing your data. Garmin Connect is a thriving online community where people on the go can connect and compete by joining challenges, encourage each other’s successes and even share their triumphs via social media. Garmin Connect is free and available on the web or on your smartphone with the Garmin Connect Mobile app.

There's no buttons. Everything is navigated by holding, double tapping, or swiping the glass screen. It tracks steps, stairs, workout intensity minutes, calories burned, distance, and more. It also can remind you to move if you've been sitting too long, give you weather information, and control a VIRB cameras. Then there is the other reason I am loyal to the vivosmart family: anything that sends you push notifications on your phone can be sent also to the watch. No need to worry if the app you like is compatible with the watch, and there's no downloading necessary. Just go into settings in the app and add it under smart notifications.
Other cool stuff: you can set more than one alarm, and you can choose the individual days. This has been a complaint about garmin vivos forever, and it finally happened. It has gps ability for running and walking. I like the stress monitor and the relax timer. I haven't had it long enough to really interpret the data, but the relax timer did lower my stress number, so take that however you want. You can adjust the strength of the vibrating alerts. You can (slightly) customize the watch face. There's a couple analog and digital designs, and varying information on some of them. You can also orient it so that the display is horizontal or vertical. The time stays on all the time, but you can set it so the screen gets brighter as you turn it and raise your arm to see what time it is. There are choices in activity straight from the watch: walk, run, cycling, cardio, strength, and other. The battery life is supposed to last about a week, less if you use the GPS more often.
It's as accurate as any of the other wrist based trackers I've worn, which is to say holding my wrist steady while pushing a stroller doesn't work so great, but sometimes I get credit for folding laundry.
Tried out the GPS for the first time the other day. Worked well for me, didn't take very long (about a minute, I had to step away from my front door and into the driveway, but then it fixed right away) to get my location, and it was kind of cool to see my route in the app once it was uploaded. I was on a nicely wooded trail and in a relatively new neighborhood and the route was accurate.
The not good: Screen can be hard to see in bright light. Also, I had it set to automatically turn on when I walked or ran for a certain amount of time. It would start randomly for no reason, usually when I had been sitting. Even after removing the settings both online and through the app and syncing multiple times, it kept doing it. A restore default reset on the watch seems to have fixed that. Another small negative: the screen is small, so notifications can be time consuming to read. The touch screen is sensitive. So far, my sleeve and submerging my wrist have both activated it.
I will update this review as I continue to use it.
When I got it, I started using it immediately. The GPS can be a little slow to acquire a signal but maybe that is just based off of my location? Sometimes it takes less than 10 seconds. Other times I have had it take more than 5 minutes to acquire a signal while standing in the middle of a field without any overhead obstructions... The tracking for running and heart rate seems very accurate and the auto-sensing for weightlifting of reps and exercises is also fairly accurate.
My biggest complaint is the wrist strap (which is exactly what I was afraid of having read reviews before purchasing it). After only having worn it for 4 days, the rubber strap started to develop a tear starting from the inside corner of the hole that I wear it on. Once the tear started, it only got worse and larger. I am not wearing the strap too tightly as it can still move about my wrist rather easily. Conversely, it has to be born with a certain degree of snugness or it won't be able to get accurate readings for the heart rate sensor.
My second biggest complaint is Garmin's customer service, and more specifically, lack thereof. I submitted an email to their customer support department through their website on the 5th day after I realized the tear was only going to get worse. In it, I included my information and product SN. In an automatic reply, I was told it would take 1-2 business days to receive a reply regarding my issue. After 4 business days without a reply, I started an online chat with Garmin support. They took the position that "any band can tear" but did concede it to be unusual with it happening so quickly. Begrudgingly, Amber, the Garmin representative in chat, suggested I exchange the product with the retailer I bought it from. She said it would be faster if they replaced it instead of Garmin. She did give me the option to have Garmin exchange it though which I took her up on. Rather than give Amazon the burden of replacing this defective product, I wanted Garmin to have to deal with their own problem. Overall, the chat had an extremely unapologetic and rather unfriendly tone. It was almost as if it was my fault the strap tore in 4 days. Maybe my standards are too high having dealt with Amazon for years and others who value their customers and strive to provide great customer service?
In short, the wrist strap developed a tear in less than a week, Garmin did as little as they could to help me, and I have initiated an exchange for a new device (the entire unit has to be replaced, not just the wrist strap). I will update this should anything change.
