Garmin Vivosmart HR+ review


Does the HR+ have the substance to make up for its lack of style?

Six day battery life ; GPS and heart rate monitor

Design is lacking ; Data could have more depth

A great device for runners, Garmin packs GPS smarts and spot-on tracking into a simple band that favors substance over style.

Garmin Vivosmart HR+ review: A fully-packed fitness tracker


There's no shortage of fitness trackers on the market. Since the launch of the Nike FuelBand , just about everyone has had a crack at this lifestyle end of the sports device market.

GPS and heart rate tracking, compact size, reasonable battery life, solid phone connection, notifications

Not the best looking device, Garmin Connect is a little dour, display a little small

The Garmin Vivosmart HR+ is something of a surprise package, stuffing a lot of functionality into a device that's only a little larger than some other fitness tracker bands.

Garmin Vivosmart HR Plus


Since the Apple Watch arrived, it seems that every company in the wearables market has been hell bent on making a device that can handle it all – from fitness tracking to Twitter notifications – while also looking like a high-end fashion item.

If you're a hardcore fitness fanatic, this is the wearable for you.

Garmin Vivosmart HR+ review: The best fitness band — don’t waste your money on anything else


Garmin's Vivosmart HR+ fitness band has it all, and while pricey, it represents super value

The Garmin Vivosmart HR+ is hands down the best fitness tracker I’ve had the pleasure of using. It’s comfortable, looks stylish in an understated way, is practical when out and about, has great stamina and has an app that number crunchers will love.

Garmin's Vivosmart HR+ is a slim fitness tracker with GPS (hands-on)


Garmin has yet another new fitness tracker. For those keeping count, that's six in five months. The fitness company on Monday announced the Garmin Vivosmart HR+, a cousin to the already released and reviewed Vivosmart HR. It's available now for $220,...

Garmin Vivosmart HR+ review


A top tier tracker that's got some GPS smarts too

Awesome App ; Marathon Battery life ; GPS on the cheap

Big & bulky ; Not so comfy ; Nags worse than your Mum

A superb tracker packed with features - it's just not so great to wear day-to-day

Excellent exercise promoter


Bought this for my husband who was keen to monitor his sleep patterns after seeing what my Garmin Vivoactive could do. He now does this and more - I find him doing little walks to meet his step target which has gradually been raised! An excellent...

Consumer review by: Mats1974 (

Over rated


The device feels cheap, the screen is too small to read notifications and is dull compared to the Fitbit. The device also failed to sync around 50% of the time. I found it uncomfortable to wear and bulky. Returned after less than a week. Great customer...
