Garmin Vivosmart HR review: A better and smarter fitness tracker


I'm picky when it comes to fitness trackers. I want a device that can stay on my wrist for extended periods of time, and that doesn't have to be charged every few days. One that doesn't need to be removed each time I take a shower or go for a swim. I...

All-day heart rate and fitness tracking. Always-on touchscreen. Can get smartphone notifications. Shower and swim-friendly

Bulky design. Its Garmin Connect mobile app isn't as refined as apps from Fitbit or Jawbone. No smart coaching or personalized feedback

The Garmin Vivosmart HR does fitness and heart rate tracking just about as well as the Fitbit Charge HR while adding smartphone alerts, too, all in a compact package.

Great wareability


I purchased the Viviosmart HR so that I could see who calls and messages me. I fell in love with the fact that it's water proof and that it only needs to be charged every 5-7 days. I found that sometimes it didn't sync smoothly with my iphone, but all...

Love this Smart Watch!


This is a really good value decent Smart Watch / fitness tracker. It has pretty much everything that I need to motivate myself to do more exercise to keep fit. It tracks HR, steps, calories, floor climbs and it reminds you to move if you are inactive...
