Garmin Vivomove review

 

Basic tracking features wrapped up in a timeless design

Smart design ; Comfortable ; Excellent battery life ; Clever on-watch tracker displays

Very limited features ; Garmin Connect software is neither pretty nor slick

It's perilously short on features, but the Vivomove might just be the classiest gadget Garmin has ever made.

Garmin Vivomove review

 

The Garmin Vivomove deserves a special honor. It's the first fitness tracker I wore to a wedding, and no one even noticed.

Great fashion-watch design; one-year battery life; and can track steps and sleep automatically. Can sync with Android and iOS, and can be worn in the shower and while swimming.

Occasional connection issues with the Garmin app; watch lacks vibration; can't be used with other Garmin trackers; lacks advanced features like a heart rate sensor or smartphone alerts.

The Garmin Vivomove is a well-crafted and stylish watch that provides bare-bones fitness tracking, but you're trading function for form.

Garmin Vivomove

 

The Garmin Vivomove is a fitness tracker for those with more discerning aesthetic tastes. Like the Withings Activité range, it's visually very much a watch first, activity tracker second. It won't stick out like a sore thumb if you need to transition...

A decent fitness tracker masquerading as a stylish traditional watch.

Garmin Vivomove review

 

A case of style before substance - for better and worse

Subtle and stylish looks ; No information overload ; Brilliant battery

Too simple for serious sports-fiends ; Missing a few features

The Garmin Vivomove lacks the smarts to satisfy fitness freaks, but it sure looks pretty

Garmin Vivomove review

  (Rating Hidden)

The Garmin Vivomove is a fitness tracker in disguise - it looks like a regular watch, but has basic activity tracking features such as counting your steps taken. Is it stylish and useful, or just too simple to be of any use? We put this fitness tracker...

Garmin vivomove review

 

The Garmin vivomove is a good looking activity tracker that resembles an analog watch. I am always curious to try these kinds of trackers because I feel they fit better with day to day work activities. This is the main reason I wear a Withings...

It's a nice watch, reliable and with great battery life but the lack of an alarm and unreliable sync let it down a bit.
