If you are looking for a wearable tech that combines the attributes of a fitness tracker plus a smartwatch, the Garmin Vivosmart HR Activity Tracker Regular Fit – Black is what you need. We all have what we look for in our devices, but most people will go for a fitness tracker that lets them see notifications from their smartphone and doesn’t need to be stored away when you need to take a swim.
The Garmin Vivosmart HR Activity Tracker Regular Fit – Black comes with everything you need in an all-around fitness tracker. It measures your heart rate, tracks your sleep, monitors your daily activities, and comes with smartwatch-like functions and water resistance. Plus, a long battery life and strong watch-like buckle to secure it tightly to your wrist. What more could you ask for?
The Garmin Vivosmart HR Activity Tracker Regular Fit – Black is bigger than some of its contemporaries, but it also comes with more features. The Garmin Vivosmart HR Activity Tracker Regular Fit – Black features a sleek band similar to that of a wristwatch, and is comfortable and secure enough to keep the device on your wrist without any issues all day long. The Vivosmart HR comes with sensors that track your daily activities including the number of steps taken, distance covered, calories burned, floors climbed and activity intensity during workouts. The tracker also monitors your heart rate through the optical heart rate monitor at the back of the device, but you need to wear the device tightly for the sensor to work efficiently. The big screen shows you real-time stats of your calorie expenditure, heart rate, steps, distance travelled and active minutes. The Vivosmart also automatically tracks your sleep, and shows you how many hours of light and deep sleep you achieved during the night. The band also offers a vibration as a silent alarm to wake you up in the morning, and remind you to move after some time of inactivity.
The Garmin Vivosmart HR Activity Tracker Regular Fit – Black syncs with Android, iPhone and Windows devices and provides notifications of incoming calls, text messages, calendar events, emails, and social media alerts. The Vivo smart also lets you control music playback from your wrist. You can play songs, pause, skip tracks or go back but you won’t see the name of the song or the artist. You also have a weather widget to show you weather forecasts right on the screen. Simply download the mobile app Garmin Connect mobile on your mobile device to get more out of your Vivosmart HR. The app lets you sync your device with the tracker and provides a detailed and deep analysis of your heart rate, sleep logs, and daily activities. If you want a detailed tracking of your calorie burn, simply open a MyFitnessPal via your Garmin Connect account.
Another plus for the Vivo smart is its water-resistance. You can keep the device on when you want to shower, swim, walk in the rain, or when you are washing your hands. It is built to be functional 100 percent.
Vivo smart comes with Intensity Minutes which helps to monitor the intensity of your activities as well.
The battery can last up to 5 days on a charge, depending on usage. The Vivo smart HR is a great choice as it provides all-day heart rate and fitness tracking, water resistance, always-on touchscreen, and smartphone notifications. However, it is bulky, and the mobile app is not that spectacular.
To conclude, the Garmin Vivosmart HR Activity Tracker Regular Fit – Black is an affordable fitness and heart rate tracker that also provides smartphone alerts. It is a good buy any day!
