The best fit­ness band for most peo­ple, but es­pe­cially run­ners For­get the new nomenclature, this is the suc­ces­sor to the Vivos­mart HR+ that took this com­par­i­son crown last year. Vivosport is the Vivos­mart 3, but with built-in GPS and a colour screen. I hate that Garmin re­moved the phys­i­cal but­ton and halved the screen size, but love that the band is svelte enough to make it out of the way of a ket­tle bell.

The wa­ter-re­sis­tant band car­ries many de­sign queues over from the Vivos­mart 3 and in­cludes that de­vice’s stress mon­i­tor­ing fea­ture. Out­side of those up­grades over the Vivos­mart HR+ it suc­ceeds is a strength train­ing op­tion ( also a Vivos­mart 3 fea­ture) and an im­proved “Other” train­ing op­tion which is a good catch all.

Garmin have fi­nally al­lowed the Vivosport onto its Live­track ser­vice which al­lows loved ones to mon­i­tor your lo­ca­tion when you’re deep in marathon or cy­cle tour train­ing. This gives ex­tra piece of mind in th­ese crime-filled times R3 500
