    Designed to be worn all day vívomove features a timeless analog style face and is available in several models: the sleek vívomove sport, vívomove classic with leather straps, and the more upscale vívomove premium with leather straps and full steel body. With interchangeable leather and silicone strap options and a variety of fashionable case finishes including black, white, rose gold-tone, stainless steel, and gold-tone, the vívomove can be customised to a user’s personal style.

    The watch face features two bars that allow users to view step progress and inactivity at a glance. The bar on the left side of the face shows the progress toward a user’s personalized daily step goal. The red bar on the right side of the watch face reminds users when they’ve been inactive too long, filling half way after one hour of inactivity and building with every 15 minutes after that until it’s reset by walking for a couple of minutes.

  • Garmin Vivosport Smart Activity Tracker

     Garmin Vivosport Activity Tracker

    The Garmin vívosport is a smart activity tracker with Elevate 24/7 wrist-based heart rate and GPS to accurately track every walk, run, and ride. With an always-on Garmin Chroma colour touchscreen display and new built-in sports apps for everything from strength training to cycling and cardio, the vívosport is optimised for both indoor and outdoor workouts. 

    Smart notifications keep users connected as they jump from one activity to the next, and fitness and wellness monitoring tools provide valuable information like fitness, age, and stress level. Safe for swimming and showering and featuring a battery life of up to 7 days in smartwatch mode and 8 hours in GPS mode, this ultra-slim tracker is built for life on the go. The vívosport is one of the many new wearables from Garmin being launched in conjunction with IFA in Berlin, Germany, September 1-6.

    “We realize that many customers prefer to work out with a slim fitness band but don’t want to compromise on the fitness and connectivity features typically found on smartwatches,” said Andrew Silver, Garmin EMEA Product Manager. “With vívosport, you get the best of a smart activity tracker and a sports watch in an ultra-slim, ultra-sleek design.” The vívosport features helpful fitness monitoring tools including VO2 max and fitness age which provide users with valuable data to monitor changes in their fitness level. Increased activity – like walking the dog or training for a 5K – will improve these numbers over time.

    The vívosport also includes all-day stress tracking by measuring users’ HRV (heart rate variability). The ability to view both current stress levels at the wrist and a longer timetable of stress on Garmin Connect allows customers to identify patterns and consider making lifestyle changes to avoid or better cope with stress-inducing situations. A Four-Fold Breath relaxation timer further helps users balance stress and rest.

    With built-in sports apps for walking, running, biking, cardio and strength training, the vívosport is the perfect accessory for running the neighbourhood, conquering a high-intensity interval training (HIIT) class or counting reps and sets in the gym. And thanks to Garmin Move IQTM, the vívosport automatically classifies multiple activities, and with auto-start will automatically start and stop timed runs and walks. Give loved ones peace of mind during outdoor workouts with LiveTrack, a feature that tracks activity and location in real time. Designated individuals will receive invitations via email, Facebook or Twitter with a link to a web page that includes the position of the connected vívosport device. 

    The vívosport is the only fitness band to include this LiveTrack feature. Stay connected on the move with vibration alerts for emails, texts, calls, calendar reminders, app alerts, social media updates and more from a compatible smartphone. Users will also benefit from the ability to control music on their smartphone from the vívosport, send an alert to locate a misplaced smartphone, and control a Garmin VIRB camera (sold separately). Throughout the day, the vívosport automatically syncs with the Garmin Connect mobile app to save stats for easy access later.
