  • Q: Does this also have a watch like the lower end model? Does the watch continue to show?  (5 Answers)

    By Peggy 

    • Best answerIf your asking does this tell the time, yes it does. Unlike the previous Garmin models this one does not have an always on display. There is a setting to have it come on when you raise your arm and look at it or you double tap the screen to turn on the display

  • Q: how long does the battery last before needing to recharge?  (5 Answers)

    By shazzam 

    • Best answerI've had mine about a month. It replaces a much older version. I find the battery lasts 5-7 days depending on how much I am using it. I wear it 24/7, but sometimes I'm scrolling through options more than others. Also depends on if you have the notification setting turned on and are getting alerts from your phone. That would use more battery than if you have that setting turned off. Hope this helps.

  • Q: Does it have smart notifications?  (5 Answers)

    By Anonymous 

    • Best answerIf you're referring to notifications from your smartphone, like text messages, emails, incoming calls, etc....yes. It's not always persistent, however, from my experience. Texts will come in on my phone, but sometimes I won't get notified on this device. Hopefully this can be fixed with a software update or something.

    • Best answerIt does track calories would need to sync it with the myfitnesspal app to track calories consumed. You just have to enter into the app the food you are consuming and it will calculate the calories for you

  • Q: Do you have to carry your phone with you in order to track your gps location while running?  (2 Answers)

    By Shawn 

    • Best answerShawn, Yes, you would. This model does not have the GPS module built into it. It's what keeps it so thin. If you want hr plus gps, you would need to look at the vivosmart hr+. I suspect thought that Garmin may be coming out with a replacement for the vivosmart hr+ so whether you want to to wait for that possibility is up to you. Hope that helps.
