Product Research


Overview: The Garmin vívoactive® 5 GPS smartwatch has more than 30 built-in sports apps to help you track your activities. Garmin's Elevate wrist-based heart rate technology monitors your heart rate whenever you wear the watch. vívoactive 5 pairs with your smartphone and will display notifications of incoming phone calls, texts, emails, and calendar events. You can also pair wireless ANT+ sensors, such as an optional foot pod, temperature sensor, or bike speed/cadence sensor, to give you performance data as you work out. 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 5 has a thin profile (less than 1/2") and a bright 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.

Design: The vívoactive 5 features an attractive and durable anodized aluminum bezel and a fiber-reinforced polymer case. The unit is equipped with a Corning® Gorilla® Glass 3 lens, which is shatter- and scratch-resistant. The included silicone wrist band fits wrists with a circumference of 4.92" to 7.48".

Interchangeable Wrist Bands: You can customize the look of your vívoactive 5 with interchangeable wrist bands (sold separately). Garmin's 20mm (0.79" wide) Quick Release bands are compatible with the vívoactive 5. The bands feature a quick-release pin on the spring bar to remove the wrist band. No tools are required.

Display: The vívoactive 5 has a 1.2" diameter AMOLED full-color touchscreen display with a resolution of 390 x 390 pixels. You can choose between a small or large font to enable you to view your data with ease. In the Settings Menu, you can select the length of time before the screen turns off. You can set the display to turn on when you raise your arm and look at your wrist (Gesture), and adjust the sensitivity to turn on the display more or less often. Setting the display to Always On keeps the watch face data visible and turns down the brightness and background. The display settings have a direct effect on the battery life.

Music Playback: The vívoactive 5 gives you several options for playing back music. You can connect the watch to your computer (via Garmin Express) or to a third-party provider for downloading music (songs and playlists) from Spotify, Deezer, or Amazon Music, allowing you to listen on connected Bluetooth headphones, even if your phone is not nearby. If you take your phone along, you can control content on your phone with the vívoactive 5.

Garmin Connect: The vívoactive 5 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 Mobile works with devices running Android (version 7.0 and up) and iOS 15.0 or later.

Sports Apps: The vívoactive 5 contains over 30 preloaded sports apps that you can use to track your activities, including both indoor and outdoor activities. Apps include walking, running, cycling, pool swimming, and activities for wheelchair users. Some apps require you to pair the vívoactive 5 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.

Wheelchair Users: The vívoactive 5 includes a new mode especially made for wheelchair users. The Wheelchair Mode counts the daily indoor and outdoor pushes and handcycling activities, such as Push-Run Speed and Push-Walk Speed. Instead of counting steps, the watch tracks your movements as pushes. When wheelchair mode is turned on, you must pair a cadence sensor for all activities. For indoor activities, you'll need to pair a speed sensor for uploading speed data. Wheelchair mode can be turned on or off in the User Profile settings.

History: The vívoactive 5 gives you access to up to 200 hours of activity tracking and heart rate monitoring, and unlimited activities. Your saved activity data is automatically uploaded to the Garmin Connect Mobile app. When the built-in storage becomes full, the oldest files are deleted to make room for new data.

Heart Rate Features: With Garmin's Elevate wrist-based heart rate monitor, you can view your heart rate data on the watch at a glance. You can view your current heart rate data, as well as a graph of your heart rate over the last 4 hours. The device can alert you whenever your heart rate become erratic (abnormally low or high). Athletes can use heart rate zones and VO2 estimates to increase their cardiovascular strength and monitor their fitness levels. In addition to your heart rate, the watch has a pulse oximeter to gauge the saturation of oxygen in your blood. The vívoactive 5 is compatible with ANT+ chest heart rate monitors, including the HRM-Pro Plus from Garmin. When a chest-worn HRM is paired with the watch, it overrides the wrist-worn monitor.

Activity Tracking: The vívoactive 5 can help you with your daily workouts and activities. There are built-in apps for simple walks or runs, cycling, swimming indoors or outdoors, playing golf, or hitting the gym. The watch can count your steps or the number of floors you've climbed. vívoactive 5 can help you set goals and track your progress toward making those goals. When you've been sitting for prolonged periods of time, the watch will encourage you with a Move Alert.

Sleep Tracking: While you sleep, vívoactive 5 can automatically detect and monitor your sleep. Sleep statistics include total hours of sleep (including naps), sleep stages, and sleep movement to give you a daily sleep score.

Women's Health: The vívoactive 5 can help women to feel more in control of their health. The watch can track and monitor your menstrual cycle, allowing you to notice patterns and trends. If your cycle is regular or irregular, you can log your periods and symptoms, including mood, discharge, physical symptoms, and more. If you're pregnant, the vívoactive 5 can display your baby's gestational age and size, and provide weekly exercise and nutrition tips. You can even track your weight gain throughout your pregnancy, if desired.
