Stay In Style While Being Active
If you like looking good while working out the Garmin Vivosmart is for you. This sleek design band will catch some attention, especially with it being touchscreen.
The Vivosmart is worn just like a watch but it has so much more to offer than a normal watch. To activate your Vivosmart all it takes is the tap of the band and it is easy to navigate just by swiping.
When wearing the Vivosmart people think its just a bracelet until they see the notifications go off then all the questions come.
What is that watch all about?
The Garmin Vivosmart is a fitness tracker that will track everything from your everyday run/walk and how many steps you take during your day.
All this is tracked when you sync your Vivosmart to your smart phone or to your computer. It is compatible with IOS, Android, OS X, Windows.
If you wonder how many calories you burn a day the Vivosmart will tell you that too so you don’t have to wonder anymore.
It can track your heart rate and bike speed as well but those monitors are sold separately.
When you first get your Vivosmart it will learn your activity level and assign you attainable daily goals. As the day goes by and you fulfill your goals it will adjust your next goal allowing you to have a more active lifestyle.
The battery life is pretty amazing allowing you to wear it for 7 days straight before it needs a good charge. The Vivosmart has a built-in alarm clock that you can use. When it is activated it gives you a gentle vibration. You can also set the sleep mode so you can track how many good hours of sleep you get and how often you move. This can all be seen on your Garmin Connect Page.
If you are a competitive person you can link with your friends around the world and challenge them and earn virtual badges and bragging rights.
My favorite feature about the Garmin Vivosmart will have to be the fact that it can track all my emails, text, and calls just by looking at my wrist. It lets you know when you have a new notification by giving you a gentle vibration.
It’s perfect for when you are on the move or driving and you don’t have time to whip out your phone to check who’s calling or texting or if you are trying to ignore someones call and you don’t want to waste your time looking at your phone. You shouldn’t even be texting and driving anyway so at least the Vivosmart lets you know what is going on in your mobile device.
Is The Garmin Vivosmart Waterproof?
People always ask the question if this particular product is waterproof because no one wants to buy a watch these days that isn’t waterproof, especially if it’s a fitness tracker.
So to answer your question, yes the Vivosmart is waterproof. You can shower with it, swim with it, and sweat in it. Just don’t go deep diving with it because the pressure will break it then it will be $90 down the drain.
I hope this review helps and if you have any questions or comments please leave them below and I will get back to you.
