My husband bought this watch for me about a month ago and I absolutely love it he got one for himself and he loved his so he bought me one I love that we can see each other‘s progress when it comes to working out it helps with accountability and pushes you Meet goals Every day there’s something new that I figure out about my watch and I’m absolutely in love with it!!

Just what I was looking for
Rating: 5
Needed a new tracker and this has everything I need! Screen is easy to read- even with sunglasses on! Buttons are simple and the screen is very responsive. GPS is great to use on bike rides and runs with quick and easy links to strava. Still need to play around with the music feature and some others but so far the watch has performed great! Lightweight and fits nicely on my wrist.

After getting into running outside due to covid, I decided I wanted to get a fitness watch so I didn't have to carry my phone anymore. I really love the Vivo 4s and have not had trouble downloading my music with Spotify (though you do need a premium account). Would recommend!

Super Powerful!
Rating: 4
I am loving my vivoactive 4s so far! I am impressed with being able to have an accurate GPS reading and listen to music from my watch without needing my phone with me on a run. The only reason it's 4 stars instead of 5 is I don't find it as intuitive to use right out of the box as other smart watches I have used before, so it has taken me a little bit longer to figure out all the features and how to best use the applications on the watch. I think after another couple of days I'll have it all figured out! Excited to use this watch to train for my first full marathon.

Perfect for almost any workout!
Rating: 4
I use this for running/walking (outdoor and treadmill), yoga, pilates, biking, and cardio. There are so many workouts which can be tracked as well as sleep, heart rate, and steps. I got pregnant after I already had this watch and I love it even more now since I can keep track of my heart rate and sleeping habits. I only wish the battery would live longer.

So far, so good
Rating: 4
After much deliberation, I switched from a Fitbit to my Vivoactive 4S. And I am super impressed with Capture of my walking and running. Definitely is not as accurate with sleep. I wish (hint hint) I could store music through Rock my Run. But every other feature is remarkably excellent.

Having a hard time
Rating: 3
Can’t figure out how to use the activity items. Once I start a pool swim, for instance, I can’t figure out how to stop and save the activity. The check mark and x do not seem to respond when I press them. I have gone to the detailed instructions but they are not helpful, considering contacting Garmin by phone for some assistance

Great except for a few things
Rating: 3
The sleep tracking doesn’t work right. I’ll sleep for 7 or eight hours and it says I slept for 10+. Also my calories I burn are different than Fitbit, not sure if it’s more accurate or less but it’s different. One more thing, I thought there would be a way to show people where I am so they can make sure I’m ok if I’m hiking and I haven’t found that either 🙁 I sort of feel like I should have just gotten a Fitbit

Like the style but controls are clunky
Rating: 3
I just got this watch in the last week. I love the size and round face. The controls and shifting through programs is clunky... meaning take multiple steps. It's also difficult to do a running program and change your music playlist. I don't like that you have to pay for watch faces. The ones that they provide for free offers a lot to be desired. Fitbit had more options. Similar functionality to Fitbit alternatives... not sure yet that I like this watch more yet.
