Garmin Vivoactive HR review: A versatile multisport watch for active people

 

Garmin's latest watch offers fitness tracking, smartphone notifications, a built-in heart-rate sensor and long battery life. It also has GPS to track your activities.

There's a wealth of features here, including all-day activity tracking, phone notifications, built-in optical heart-rate sensor, GPS, multiple sport profiles and an always-on display. It can be worn in the shower and while swimming.

It's bulky, there are occasional connection and syncing problems, and the mobile app is confusing.

The Vivoactive HR's versatile, multipurpose function and design make it one of the better smart GPS fitness watches on the market.

Garmin Vivoactive HR review: A versatile multisport watch for active consumers

 

I've had a busy month. I've been running, cycling, swimming, rowing and hiking. And I've done all of this while wearing a single watch, Garmin's Vivoactive HR. Unlike many of Garmin's other products, the watch won't appeal to just athletes. It's an...

Garmin Vivo Active

 

Been wearing this for a while now and is much better than I was expecting. The battery life is very good, even when using the activity functions. I am interested in the sleep tracker, but I don't think it functions properly as it says I'm asleep when I...

Great device I wear it everyday

 

I had a Fitbit before my Garmin Vivoactive HR watch. It has bigger screen and more functions. I wear it everyday and I only need to charge my Garmin once per fortnight. I love how we can set our own watch face and it's very convenient to do it too. I...

Great heart monitor

 

I really enjoy my vivo active heart rate watch. The only reason I didn't rate a 5 was because it is a bit clunky on my arm. Mine works perfectly as it says, and the battery lasts a long time, especially if you do not use the GPS a lot.
