Our take on the Garmin vivoactive™ Bundle

Garmin's vivoactive™ GPS smartwatch breaks new ground in wearable technology for the person who's on the go, whether you're pounding out a report on your keyboard or pounding out the miles while you train for the big race. And this bundle includes a heart rate monitor you can track and record your heart rate when swimming or cycling, providing you with valuable information that can refine and boost your training. And this beauty's display can be customized, using Garmin's Face-it™ app to change the background to match any picture on your smartphone. 

Stay active and stay connected

Garmin's vivoactive™ GPS smartwatch breaks new ground in wearable technology for the person who's on the go, whether you're pounding out a report on your keyboard or pounding out the miles while you train for the big race. And this bundle includes a heart rate monitor you can track and record your heart rate when swimming or cycling, providing you with valuable information that can refine and boost your training. And this beauty's display can be customized, using Garmin's Face-it™ app to change the background to match any picture on your smartphone. 

vivoactive also goes beyond what you'll find in standard sports watches or activity trackers, combining the best of both worlds in a slim, elegant design. Pair it to your smartphone and you'll receive vibration alerts for incoming emails, calls, texts, social media, and appointments. And you can customize vivoactive with free watch face designs, apps, and widgets from the Garmin Connect IQ™ store.

Garmin Vivoactive

vivoactive is an all-in-one one-stop solution for tracking your activities (black version shown).

Run, bike, swim

When you lace up your kicks for a training run, vivoactive's running app uses GPS to measure and record your distance and pace. If you're stuck on the treadmill, a built-in accelerometer and wrist-based speed and cadence trackers estimate the data for your run. vivoactive automatically syncs with the Garmin Connect™ mobile app, so you can review info on your smartphone when you're done.

The cycling app uses GPS to accurately measure your time, speed, and distance. And you can use it with an optional cadence sensor to get an even more accurate look at your efforts.

When you hit the lap pool, vivoactive takes the hassle out of counting laps and automatically records your distance, intervals, and stroke count.

Tee it up

vivoactive can access over 38,000 golf courses from Garmin's golf course database. Download your favorite and you'll always know layup and dogleg distances, plus yardage to the front, middle, and back of the green (it's up to you to hit the shot!) Measure the distance of that great drive with just a touch of a button and even keep score with the stroke play scorecard.

Stay on the move

Staying active throughout the day is one of the keys to good health. vivoactive's activity tracking app records your steps and assigns you a daily step count goal to provide you with an incentive, adjusting the count as you hit your goals. And to remind you to get up from your desk, the red move bar appears on the display after 1 hour of inactivity. Get up for a walk to reset it. Since a good night's sleep will recharge you for the next day, you can use vivoactive to record your sleep patterns.

Does what it supposed to do and seamlessly connects with my Android phone.

    If your not into new technology gadgets, your in great hands with Garmin, everything was so easy to do load save set up, between pc, phone, apps ect, best feature beep beep hello get off the couch lol...tells you when you inactive for any period of time. So many apps to choice from to configure it to your likings.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I have had the watch for a week. Easy to set up and use. GPS acquires satellites quickly. Syncs to IPad quickly and the Connect app is really useful.

    Husband loves it.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    My husband loves it.

    Pros: My husband loves it.

    Cons: I don't know yet. It is still too new. I do know that setting it up wasn't turn-key, and the instructions aren't particularly helpful.

    John J from Texas on 5/12/2015

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    The GPS accuracy is very good. I run with this watch and over about a dozen known distance courses the accuracy is very good. Battery life has been surprisingly good as well especially considering my GPS use.

    Pros: Great GPS accuracy Impressive battery life

    Cons: It is somewhat clunky.

    Great Product

    KevinR from Illinois on 4/4/2015

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    New to the running and biking world I started looking at a way to eliminate carrying my phone with me on runs and rides. After much research I anxiously awaited the release of the VivoActive watch. Crutch field had the watch in stock before anyone else and I got it delivered in less than two days from order. Does everything I want it to do and more. Could not ask for a better product at a great price. The heart monitor is hard to remember to put on and use, but it is far more accurate than any of the watches that have the HR monitor built in.

    Pros: Easy to use. Color and touchscreen. Many apps to choose from on Connect IQ. Battery life is incredible as long as you leave GPS to turn on only when needed.

    Cons: Due to type of readout it has, it is sometimes hard to read in low lit places and you have to use the light on the watch to see anything.

    great watch for a runner, biker, swimmer, or golfer!

    James from Moorhead, MN on 3/31/2015

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    The watch will be amazing in a few months, just need to have app developers develop more functions. I ended up returning it because of the lack of weight lifting capabilities. But someone who doesn't sit still would love it!

    Pros: Great GPS accuracy, very long battery life, great base apps, all apps are free and always will be

    Cons: Spendy, lack of apps on the store, kills my phone's battery

    Features

    Overview: The Garmin vívoactive is a GPS smartwatch with built-in sports apps that help you track your activities. When paired with your smartphone, vívoactive can alert you when you receive a call, text, email, or a calendar event. You can use the device with wireless ANT+ sensors, such as the included Heart Rate Monitor, or the optional foot pod, temperature sensor, or bike speed/cadence sensor. The device has a waterproof rating of 5 ATM, allowing you to swim, perform outdoors in the rain, sweat, or even shower with it on. Vívoactive has a thin profile (only 5/16") and a high-resolution color touchscreen display that you can read in the sunlight. The watch is powered by a rechargeable battery, and comes with a charging/data cable.

    Garmin Connect: The vívoactive has built-in Bluetooth Smart technology so you can automatically pair it to your smartphone or mobile device. You can also use the supplied charging/data cable to connect the device to your home computer. With the Garmin Connect app on your smartphone or computer, you can keep track of your activities, your daily goals, the calories you've burned, and help motivate you to keep active. You can also share your activities and goals with your friends on social media. Garmin Connect for your home computer is compatible with Windows XP and newer and Mac OS 10.7 or higher. Garmin Connect Mobile works with Bluetooth 4.0-enabled devices running Android 4.3 or higher and iOS 7.0 and above. Click here for a list of compatible phones.

    Sports Apps: The vívoactive contains several sports apps that you can use to track your activities, including both indoor and outdoor activities. Some apps require you to pair the vívoactive to a compatible smartphone. Optional ANT+ sensors can provide additional data to the tracked activity. In addition, the Find My Phone app can help you locate a lost phone that is connected to the watch via Bluetooth.

    • Running: Using built-in GPS, the vívoactive smartwatch can track the route and distance of your run, plus help you navigate back to the starting location. The stopwatch keeps the lap and total time of your run. You can also keep track of the number of laps, lap pace, and lap distance. Heart rate and running cadence can be monitored with add-on ANT+ sensors.
    • Walking: The vívoactive uses the same display and monitors the same parameters as when running.
    • Swimming: The vívoactive is designed for use while surface swimming only. It is not intended for scuba diving. You can select the pool size (25 or 50 meters, 25 yards, 33-1/3 yards, 33-1/3 meters, or custom) before beginning your swim. While swimming, the watch tracks lengths, intervals, strokes, and your swolf score (swimming efficiency measurement).
    • Golf: Prior to playing golf, you must first download the course data from the Garmin Connect Mobile app on your smartphone. While you play, the vívoactive displays the hole number, par for the hole, and distances to the front, center, and back of the green. An odometer records the time, distance, and steps traveled during your round. You can also keep score and measure shot distances with the vívoactive.
    • Indoor Activities: You can select indoor activities such as running or walking on a treadmill, or biking on a stationary bike. When training indoors, the GPS is turned off. Speed, distance, and cadence are calculated using the vívoactive's built-in accelerometer. The accuracy of the speed, distance, and cadence data improves after a few outdoors using GPS.

    History: The vívoactive gives you access to saved data for up to 10 previous activities. With Auto Upload activated, your saved activity data is automatically uploaded to the Garmin Connect Mobile app. The device will save up to two months of activity tracking data only, or up to two weeks of activity tracking and extensive fitness activity (including heart rate or other detailed data). When the built-in storage becomes full, the oldest files are deleted to make room for new data.

    Widgets: The device comes preloaded with Widgets that provide information at a glance, track specific activities, or allow you to perform specific activities on your smartphone. Some of the widgets require a Bluetooth connection with the smartphone. By swiping the display, you can cycle through the following widgets:

    • Calendar: Displays upcoming meetings from your smartphone's calendar
    • Music Controls: Control the music player on your smartphone: play/pause, next track, and previous track.
    • Weather: Current temperature and weather forecast are displayed.
    • Activity Tracking: You can create a daily step goal, and during the day, the device will display your progress. A periodic move alert (visual or vibration) will remind you to get up and move. You can also wear the watch while you sleep, and the device will monitor your rest, including total hours of sleep, periods of movement, and periods of restful sleep.
    • VIRB Remote: The vívoactive can wirelessly control the Garmin VIRB or VIRB Elite Action Camera from a distance.
    • Notifications: The vívoactive will gently vibrate to alert you if you receive one of the following:
      • Phone Call: Caller ID and missed call information are displayed
      • Text: Sender information and message are displayed
      • Email: Sender information and subject are displayed
      • Social Media: Notifications from Facebook, Twitter
      • Weather: Weather alerts and temperature data from select weather apps

    Connect IQ: The Connect IQ Store, found on the Garmin Connect Mobile app, allows you to add extra features to your vívoactive. You can download custom watch faces, new data fields for sensor activity, more Widgets, and additional apps.

    Rechargeable Battery: The vívoactive is powered by a built-in Lithium-polymer rechargeable battery. The battery lasts approximately 10 hours in GPS mode, and up to 3 weeks in watch mode. The battery is charged when the watch is attached to the charging cradle and the charging/data cable is plugged into a USB port on your computer.
