Garmin Vivosmart Wireless Heart Rate Activity Monitor
The vívosmart HR is Garmin’s latest 24/7 activity monitor with wrist-based heartrate. This watch has Garmin Elevate, which is Garmin’s own best in class wrist-based heartrate technology. It is a replacement to our vívosmart.
It comes in 2 sizes – Regular (5.4” – 7.4”) and X-Large (7.1” – 8.8”).
- Rechargeable battery (up to 5 days)
- 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
- Sleep monitor
- Auto sync (through smartphone) - Using a compatible phone with Bluetooth Smart (BLE), vívosmart HR data can be wirelessly uploaded to Garmin
- Vibrate alert
- Always on, sunlight readable touchscreen
- Activity Timer (run, cardio, other)
- Smart notifications (with a compatible phone) Calls, texts, emails, calendar events and other notifications
- Smartphone locator
- Control music on a Smartphone
- Virb Camera remote
- An Auto Goal will be set based on the user’s profile with a screen of how many steps they have taken out of their goal. The Auto Goal can/will change daily to keep the user motivated. There are also goals for Intensity Minutes and Floors Climbed that are manually adjusted
- Waterproof to 50M - 50 meters waterproof (can be left on for showering and swimming. Most others are only water resistant)
- 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.
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. This is similar to how the Forerunner 230/630 does this for running without GPS (typically indoors) except the Forerunner units calibrate pace and distance based off of arm swing while GPS is being used.
** Vívosmart HR is not a replacement for a GPS device. It will not be as accurate as a GPS device.
