vÍvosmart HR+   (Author Gary Rosenberg)

The Garmin vívosmart HR+ is Garmin’s latest 24/7 activity monitor with wrist-based heartrate AND GPS! This watch has Garmin Elevate, which is Garmin’s own best in class wrist-based heartrate technology along with GPS making it the smallest GPS watch on the market.

It comes in 2 sizes – Regular (5.4” – 7.6”) and X-Large (7.1” – 8.8” – Black only).


The vivosmart HR+ has all the same features as the vivosmart HR plus GPS and Move IQ.

  • Move IQ - Automatically track your walking, running, biking, swimming and elliptical training throughout the day without needing to start a timed activity (it takes 10 minutes of the activity before Move IQ will record it as that activity
  • Waterproof to 50M
  • Displays time/date, steps, distance, heart rate (wrist-based), calories, floors climbed, activity intensity and alerts you if you haven’t moved for at least 1 hour - For each additional 15 minutes of inactivity, a smaller segment will be added

  • Move Bar - Why is it important to know if you have not moved for at least an hour? There have been many studies that suggest that even if you exercise regularly; sitting for prolonged periods has been increasingly linked to many health problems. (The Move Bar will let you know when it is time to get up and move around)
  • Distance - The vívosmart HR+ has a 3 dimensional accelerometer which is used to count steps (compared to a pedometer which uses a 1 dimensional accelerometer). It uses the user’s height from their profile to calculate their stride length. Because of the 3 dimensional accelerometer, the vívosmart HR+ knows when the user is moving faster (running), so increases the stride length to better calculate the distance being covered. GPS is used for distance when a Run activity is started
  • Garmin Connect (Modern) - The vívosmart HR+ can have its data uploaded to Garmin Connect just like any other Garmin fitness device.  Here you can see your steps, sleep, badges, leader boards and other data related to the vívosmart HR+
