Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I've been using it for almost 2 weeks now, I got lucky and got one really early. So far, I love it. Between weight training, elliptical running, biking (outdoor with ant+ sensors connected) and a huge amount of yard work, I am extremely impressed. Unlike previous wrist based trackers I've had, this one actually tracks movement when I cut the lawn or push a shopping cart. I use the GPS for yard work (turn on the walk activity), and it's really cool to see the movement map when I'm done.
For anyone thinking about this, keep in mind that this is an activity tracker with some smart watch functionality. If you're thinking about this or something along the lines of a Gear S2 or Apple Watch, you are comparing the wrong products. If you want something to count steps, go with a Jawbone or FitBit, no need to spend $250 for a pedometer. This also isn't small. My wrists aren't large, but it looks fine on me and the size isn't an issue. If you wear dress shirts a lot (with sleeves down...
<Update 11/27/2016: My wife and I have now had the VivoActive HR for 5 months. We still love the watch. I wanted to complement Garmin on their customer service. My watch bricked after jumping into a mountain lake over the summer. It went completely black screen and wouldn't power up. I called Garmin Customer Service and they replaced it for free since it obviously failed to be water proof. It only took a week to send mine in and get a new one back.>
I did not order these from Amazon. My wife and I each got a Vivoactive HR, we ordered directly from Garmin. We have now had them for a week and I will update this review if need be. I use mine to track steps, biking and snowboarding next season. The built in altimeter was a big selling point. I have the previous Vivoactive. It does not have an altimeter. So you can use it to track ski/snowboard runs but it uses GPS flat speed and not your actual 3d speed. The new one can now do that. My wife uses hers for...
I want to start this off by saying that this is the first fitness tracker I have owned. I would consider myself an athlete and have been one for basically my entire life. The sports I've played have changed over the years, but I've always been pretty active. I looked at other devices in the past like Fitbit, Polar, Nike, and even other Garmin devices, and nothing was appealing enough for me to finally buy into the whole activity tracking craze. A few months back, a friend showed me his Garmin Vivosmart HR during a volleyball tournament and showed me everything you can do with the Garmin Connect app. I play a lot of volleyball, so I was also a little concerned about wearing something on my wrist while playing since you pass with your arms, but he claimed that he didn't really notice it while playing. The Garmin ecosystem seemed pretty cool, so I decided to jump on Amazon and search for something for myself.
I landed on the Vivoactive HR. Unfortunately, this was in March and...
