Substantially lower price than All other stores (Amazon, Macys, Kohls, Target, Best Buy) at that time. I liked this watch as I already had one that I bought 2 yrs ago. These were gifts. Short of Apple Garmin makes best smart watches.

Great value, great product!
Rating: 4
Super easy to set up and super easy to use! Would recommend for a first smart watch. I got it for my sister and she loves being able to see how fast she is walking/running. The only issue is the steps are not 100% accurate, it is a little sensitive when in a bouncy car. The touch screen is amazing. I myself have the Fennix 5s and I find it looks similar. I love the metal around the face, makes it look way more expensive than it is. Great value! Get one before they are not available anymore.

it's great but Garmin needs to get it together as far as tech. watch looses downloads and won't connect to app because app is always broken. So if you have a favorite watch screen and their website goes down your watch screen goes away. just FYI

I give it 3 stars as it was not what I personally was looking for. For an average user, this doesn't really log steps correctly. I had some steps log while sitting at my desk. I had very few steps log while mowing my lawn. When I went out for a walk it registered steps almost exactly as I counted. So, I think there are some sensors that have to play together to make this work correctly. I did play with the GPS function and this is where it excelled. It tracked the precise location of my trek. I think this watch is more for a bicycler or runner. I ended up returning it, as I am neither one of those.

Wrist Band Causes Blisters and Keeps Odor
Rating: 2
I started with a Vivofit 3 as a beginner hiker and wanted an upgraded watch that could track sleep, heart rate, workouts, and GPS location. This watch met all the criteria but after wearing it normally as I would with the Vivofit 3, there was this awful odor the band absorbed. The wrist band gave me blistering so I have been switching wrists. After reading the Garmin forums I have been following regime where I rise the band and watch once a week to keep the odor and blistering at bay. Overall, its a great watch but the band needs better product development to avoid the cleaning regime so much.

Perfect hybrid
Rating: 5
Perfect hybrid for those who want the look of a real watch because it is a real watch. To me wearing a big digital face just isn't my style, but I wanted the funtions of a smart watch. This one is great. It looks like a regular watch for everyday wear, but tracks steps, heartbeat, stress, and sleep. It even sends me a reminder to move when I've been sitting at the desk for too long. The battery is long lasting. Currently I'm on day 7 and have about 1/4 battery remaining. The garmin connect app is also super easy to use and gives a ton of information. I'm using the watch with a Samsung S8+ and had no problems connecting. If you're on the fence, give it a try. It's well worth the time to check out.

Great watch. Tracks your sleep which I love. Very accurate heart rate tracking. For the price I love it.

Chill, mindful, & respectful
Rating: 5
This snazzy little device keeps track of heart rate, stress, sleep, steps, exercise, and can lead you through mindful moments of breathing. It is capable of alerting for notifications, yet, is calm when it does so. Alarms can be set, and will persistently and calmly work as reminders. It looks like a normal watch and even ticks as the hands move (only noticed after over a week, when I held it to my ear). I love that it doesn’t actually make noise, doesn’t have a microphone, and can only vibrate to prompt you to look at it. No worries for accidental settings in meetings. I also just love it’s simplicity! The round watch face feels more natural for me. I love the size and feel of it on my wrist. I used to get my fitbit caught on everything, and I’ve been brutal to normal watches. This one though is great. I love that it connects to apple health app on phone as well!

Great looking watch with HR function
Rating: 5
I ordered this watch primarily to function as a HR monitor, as well as doing all the other functions that my Vivosmart does. I love the style of this watch...more traditional than the square face on my other Garmin watch. It was easy to set up, although I did have to contact Garmin to help with connecting it to my app. They were very helpful and easy to reach. I will still use my Vivosmart for golf because it has the GPS function which the Vivomove does not have.

Great Smartwatch
Rating: 5
I really like my Vivomove HR Smartwatch. I have had it about 2 months now. It records my HR, sleep activities, steps, etc. and I can review all of it on the Connect app on my smartphone. The only downside to the watch is the vibration reminders that I am to far away from my smartphone to connect. There is a short range, however, it continues to record all the data and then syncs it back to the app on my phone when I'm back in range. I can also tell who is texting and calling me from my Smartwatch which is a great feature.

Rose gold very pretty

I like the watch, love the rose gold . What I don’t like is that the tracking is sometimes difficult to see. Other than that, has worked out well.

Watch was originally amazing. 2 weeks into wearing my watch, it discolored tremendously and now looks like it has been burned with a yellowing color. I bought the white and rose gold watch
