    Functions Perfectly

    I am usually all about the function and less about the form. I like almost everything about the Vivoactive HR, except the cheap plastic case. It dent around the face when you accidently hit something like a door facing. a little metal band around the face would make a great improvement. I previously had a Microsoft Band and loved it, only reason I did not upgrade to the MS Band 2 is that it's not waterproof. All in all the price of the Vivoactive HR is too high for the quality of the case, you can see the dents in the attached pic on the left side of the face.

    The device itself seems great so far. Step tracking works...though i sometimes wonder if it overcounts. I like the calories burned feature, and have been losing weight so far. There's even a weightlifting app. There is every second heart rate tracking, and this can be used with an ant+ band if you want to be extra sure when exercising. That said, for me, the rubber strap didn't play well with my skin and I had to get a much more comfortable and better looking steel band. One other down side is the backlight isn't very smart and you often have to tap the face to get it to turn on even after playing with the settings.

    Outstanding battery life I have charged it once since I received it a week ago and still shows 46% battery life. Nice features like putting a photo from your library on the screen interface. You see your favorite photo as background your steps heart rate time and date on screen or how you want it configured. Easy learning curve as well.

    This smart watch does it all, very pleased with all the widgets and apps available for the Vivoactive HR on Garmin's Connect IQ. My only two complaints with the watch is that the XL size does not have the other color bands available for purchase like the standard size does. I also wish the screen resolution was a little more brilliant. Other than that, it is the best active watch for the money!! Very happy with it.

    Bought this for my Dad who suffers from A-Fib. He's able to monitor his heart rate at all times, even while sleeping. It has more advanced options than most fitness trackers.

    Awesome tracker. Better than Fitbit!

    This tracker offers lots of data displays and information. A little overwhelming at first, but very detailed and has so many options to track different exercises. The battery life is FANTASTIC. I charged it once in 7 days with 5 workout days and still had 20% left. Better than Fitbit's 4-5 day max. The My Fitness Pal app that it works with is so much better than Fitbit's. If you like data and details, get this. The only thing I do not like is that it is a lot bulkier than the Charge HR that I had. Other than that. It is awesome!

    Don't waste your money on a non waterproof watch

    Having gone through 3 Fitbit charge watches by accidentally wearing them in the pool or hot tub I decided to find a waterproof fitness tracker. This one is great for me.... it tracks every activity I do... even swimming.... and with its GPS I feel it is very accurate with distances even if your stride length varies. Can link with Stava or Fitbit or my fitness pal. I really enjoy it.

    My son and I both got one of these for Christmas. They’re great! Easy set up. They work for all kinds of activities, I use mine for rowing and golf. And the battery goes multiple days without charging.
