IN­TER­ME­DI­ATE: FOR A MOD­ER­ATE WORK­OUT, WEIGHT TRAIN­ING, LIGHT SWIM­MING, RUN­NING GARMIN VÍVOSMART HR+ WORK­OUT TRACKER:

The Luxury Collection - - Editorial -

Garmin has been one of the pi­o­neers in mo­bil­ity track­ing with an ex­pand­ing port­fo­lio of sports and health wear­able de­vices. Its lat­est Vivos­mart HR+ fit­ness band is a notch above the reg­u­lar fit­ness bands and well-de­signed for in­ter­me­di­ate level users. Like Fitbit Alta HR, Vivos­mart fo­cuses on track­ing wrist-based heart rate us­ing its pro­pri­etary EL­E­VATE tech­nol­ogy to mea­sure the ac­tiv­ity in­ten­sity in var­i­ous set­tings from walk­ing, run­ning, climb­ing, weight train­ing, swim­ming or bik­ing.

How­ever, un­like Fitbit Alta HR, Garmin Vivos­mart HR+ in­cor­po­rates a pre­mium GPS sen­sor which ac­cu­rately tracks your walks and runs out­doors, great for those who are train­ing for marathons. It also in­cludes a baro­met­ric al­time­ter, which with GPS helps track, mea­sure and map steps, dis­tance, calo­ries, floors climbed and heart rate.

It is per­fectly suited for gym level ac­tiv­ity track­ing as well, i.e. weight train­ing in­ten­sity to calo­rie burns per work­out. Vivos­mart HR+ is also smart enough to re­ceive no­ti­fi­ca­tions via its al­ways on smart­phone con­nected touch dis­play. While it can con­trol mu­sic on your phone, Vivos­mart HR+ can cap­ture spec­tac­u­lar video footage with its Garmin’s VIRB ac­tion cam­era (sold separately).

The bat­tery life is close to 5 days with­out ac­tive GPS us­age and up to 8 hours with GPS us­age which is great for in­ter­me­di­ate users. Garmin Vivos­mart HR+ is priced around USD180 and comes in three col­ors – Shark Fin Gray, Im­pe­rial Pur­ple and Bolt Blue.
