The Vívosmart, with its GPS functionality along with continuous heart rate monitoring using the "Elevate" wrist-based heart rate technology monitors exactly what’s important to you, all day, every day!

Whether you’re going for a jog, playing a pick-up game with friends or trying out a new boot camp class, it quantifies the intensity of your fitness activities using intensity minutes. This feature lets you monitor your progress against activity goals recommended by health organizations such as the American Heart Association, U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the World Health Organization.

The Vívosmart HR+ smart activity tracker is able to track distance, time and pace for indoor or outdoor activities. With it's GPS feature, you can get even more accurate distance and pace stats, as well as a map of your activity when running or walking outdoors. In addition to tracking your runs, steps, and calories, Vívosmart HR+ measures floors climbed and intensity minutes.

And with the feature called "Move IQ," you don’t need to start or stop your activity timer when you start a new activity. Vívosmart HR+ can automatically tell the difference between movements like walking, running, biking, swimming, even using an elliptical.

In order to help you continue to set new goals once you've reached ones previously set, the Vívosmart HR learns your current activity level, then assigns an attainable daily step goal. As you meet your milestones, it will adjust your goal for the next day, gradually nudging you toward a healthier lifestyle. Throughout your day, it reminds you to stay active with a "Move Bar" and vibration alert, if you’ve been inactive for 1 hour. Go for a short walk to reset the move bar.

It also automatically measures the deep and light sleep you achieve each night (an estimation, but useful for daily sleep logging). Their band also includes a silent alarm that will buzz gently to wake you up in the morning, remind you to get up and move after being inactive.

The Vívosmart has a large always-on touchscreen display, which is easy to read outdoors and even has a backlight. The "Fitbit Charge HR" uses a small LED display, and only lights up when you lift your wrist. And you can stay in touch with your notifications while you’re moving because the Vívosmart, however, will display notifications for text messages, emails, calendar events, and social media alerts: basically, nearly anything your phone receives.

And you won’t be left out in the cold with a dead battery for your tracker. The Vívosmart has a good 5-6 days of tracking capability on a single charge!
