Garmin Vivoactive Smartwatch – Improve Your Health

The no stress work commute

Improve Your Health

Smartwatches were one of the first gadgets to be considered as wearable technology. Garmin Vivoactive is the first smartwatch produced by Garmin.

Garmin Vivoactive is a really thin and lightweight GPS smartwatch and it comes with several built-in apps, for fitness and different monitoring activities. By helping users to develop and maintain a healthy way of life, this incredible smartwatch stores most of their activities through a sophisticated GPS app for cycling, running, swimming, golfing and other everyday physical activities. Garmin Vivoactive is really great because of how comfortable it is and the notifications it provides to keep users up to date on the latest tasks, as well as keeping users connected with their family and friends.

Through the newly designed Connect IQ service, users can quickly adjust and personalize their display with new backgrounds, widgets and some additional apps (their number are constantly growing). Garmin Vivoactive comes with a high resolution touch-screen which is readable at direct sun exposure. The wristband on the Garmin Vivoactive smartwatch can be replaced to make the watch more suitable to your outfit.

Garmin Vivoactive Smartwatch encourages movement and physical activity

While you are performing different activities or sports you can monitor your performance and results with your Vivoactive smartwatch. Even if you are not in range of your smartphone’s network, your Garmin Vivoactive can monitor your vitals using the built in fitness apps. The Garmin Vivoactive can also be synched with different devices and sensors. If you want more data, synch your Vivoactive device with a heart rate sensor, a cycling speed sensor or you can even use it as a remote control for the amazing VIRB elite camera by Garmin.

The Garmin contains a running app that shows your pace, distance, and time. With the GPS and built-in accelerometer you can monitor and record distance and speed even if the GPS is not available. Additional apps come with many different features such as auto pause, auto lap and audio or vibrating warnings about heart rate or pace. The cycling app is another excellent fitness app that measures distance, time, calorie and speed during recreational or cycling training.

Even golfers can find this smartwatch useful because Garmin Vivoactive comes with maps of more than 35,000 golf courses worldwide. By using GPS, the Garmin Vivoactive can easily measure dogleg and layup distance and other golf results and indicators that affect the game.

Of course, this is not everything that the Vivoactive smartwatch provides. It is water resistant (up to 50 meters) and that’s why it comes with a special swimming app. It can measure the interval distance, pace, burned calories etc.

Between your regular training sessions, the app can track everyday activities such as the number of steps, distance and calories. The Garmin Vivoactive can also suggest a personal daily goal based on the information you provide. It will even remind you when you lack physical activity. This is why the Vivoactive is an excellent addition to your workout equipment.

Garmin Vivoactive has a battery that lasts up to 3 weeks depending on how often it is used. Of course, in case the user relies on the GPS all the time, the battery will last about 10 hours which is more than enough to track everything you need.

It doesn’t matter if you are cycling, running or doing some other physical activity. The Garmin Vivoactive is the perfect fitness device to help you improve your health and performance.
