Garmin Vivosport review

 

This sporty lightweight is part fitness tracker, part smartwatch...

Serious fitness tracking features ; Always-on screen ; Fairly good battery life

Not the most alluring band around ; No support for chest strap HR sensors

This GPS fitness tracker fits more into a small band than just about any other

Garmin Vivosport

 

Garmin Vivosport review: A GPS-equipped fitness tracker that packs in plenty of extra features that make it a versatile fitness companion.

Comfortable design ; Accurate GPS and HRM ; VO2 Max estimations ; Good battery life

Rep counting is still tacked on ; Washed out display ; Slightly buggy automatic exercise tracking

A great all-round GPS fitness tracker for those not fashion focused

Garmin Vivosport (2017) review

 

The Vivosport is the best fitness band we've ever tested.

GPS ; Heart rate monitoring ; Smart notifications ; Slim / lightweight ; Counts sets and reps

Touchy touchscreen

Don’t be fooled by the small package. Garmin’s Vivosport is a full-featured GPS smartwatch tucked into a fitness band. It’s light, attractive, snappy and features everything most anyone needs for tracking all around fitness metrics. Sure, there are...

Garmin Vivosport

 

The Garmin Vivosport costs a little more than other sports band-style fitness trackers, but makes up for it in features and functionality.

Comfortable. Easy to operate. Great automated activity-tracking options. Customizable. Supports push notifications.

A little expensive for a sports band. No swim tracking.

If you like the style of the Garmin Vivosport, there's no reason not to get one. It's reliable, durable, and accurate. If you're not sold on the Vivosport's design and would rather get a more fashionable tracker, check out the Vivoactive 3, a current...

Garmin Vivosport review

 

A small band with a lot of tech

Small for a full GPS tracker ; Good battery life ; Fair heart rate accuracy

Bland design ; No swim modes ; GPS can be slow to lock on

The Garmin Vivosport doesn't have the style of a Fitbit or the high-tech vibe of a Samsung Gear. However, this is one of the smallest fitness trackers that has full GPS/HR tracking and an altimeter. It brings max tracking power with minimal bulk.

Garmin Vivosport review: A fine but fiddly tracker

 

The Garmin Vivosport doesn't really do much wrong, but it's not my favourite fitness tracker

The Garmin Vivosport is a perfectly competent device that achieves everything it sets out to. It looks okay, has a long battery life, tracks things accurately and has an excellent app for chewing over the data. For £170 it isn’t unreasonably priced for...

Garmin Vivosport review

  (Rating Hidden)

The Garmin Vivosport is an activity tracker that tracks steps, heart rate, sleep and calories. It also tracks your route thanks to its in-built GPS. But is this activity tracker comfortable to wear and easy to use? Find out more in our Garmin Vivosport...

Garmin Vivosport Review

 

Finishing in the middle of the pack, the Garmin Vivosport failed to make much of an impact on us

Solid display, ergonomic

A little pricey for its performance

This middle-of-the-road fitness tracker is relatively uninspiring and failed to impress. It's a little on the pricey side and doesn't really stand out from the pack. It's a definite improvement over some of the previous Garmin models in terms of being...

Garmin Vivosport Review: A Good GPS Watch Alternative

 

The Garmin Vivosport feels like a fitness tracker that's made for someone who doesn't want to pay full price for a sports watch with embedded GPS and support for a variety of workout types. This comes at a price: At $199, the Vivosport is more...

Comfortable ; Embedded GPS ; Swim-rated ; Music controls

Sensitive screen ; No interchangeable bands ; Bland design

The Garmin Vivosport is a GPS-enabled activity tracker with features you typically find on higher-priced sports watches.
