FEBRUARY 2016 Garmin's been moving into the fitness tracker market in a big way since the beginning of last year. For every other month, we were given a chance to review a new smartwatch cum fitness tracker from them. It's 2016, and in the spirit of testing out Garmin's fitness devices, we are testing out the vivosmart HR.
Like all vivosmart wearables, the vivosmart HR really wasn't designed to stand out beyond its duties. The strap is made from a durable semi-hard polymer and rubber combination, and feels relatively comfortable around the wrist, albeit a little tight for yours truly.
The display on the vivosmart HR remains the same as the majority of its brethren: it's a simple OLED screen that clearly displays the various information with either a swipe to the left or right. The smartwatch works fine by itself, but if you're able to connect it to a smartphone with Garmin's Connect app
The selling point of the vivosmart HR: its heart rate monitor.
