Garmin Vivomove review: The fitness watch you can wear to a wedding

 

It's a stylish analog watch with long battery life and fitness tracking.

Great fashion-watch design; one-year battery life; and can track steps and sleep automatically. Can sync with Android and iOS, and can be worn in the shower and while swimming.

Occasional connection issues with the Garmin app; watch lacks vibration; can't be used with other Garmin trackers; lacks advanced features like a heart rate sensor or smartphone alerts.

The Garmin Vivomove is a well-crafted and stylish watch that provides bare-bones fitness tracking, but you're trading function for form.

Hands-on with the new Garmin Vivomove watch

 

The Garmin Vivo empire is expanding. This time though, in a way unlike any other Garmin product. It actually looks pretty. Swanky perhaps.

The Garmin Vivomove is a fitness tracker for those with more discerning aesthetic tastes. Like the Withings Activité range, it's visually very much a watch first, activity tracker second. It won't stick out like a sore thumb if you need to transition...

A decent fitness tracker masquerading as a stylish traditional watch.

Garmin Vivomove review

 

Basic tracking features wrapped up in a timeless design

Smart design ; Comfortable ; Excellent battery life ; Clever on-watch tracker displays

Very limited features ; Garmin Connect software is neither pretty nor slick

It's perilously short on features, but the Vivomove might just be the classiest gadget Garmin has ever made.

Garmin Vivomove review: As good-looking as activity trackers get

 

Even when compared with other simplistic analogue activity trackers such as the Withings Steel HR or Misfit Phase, the Vivomove is in a league of its

Stunningly sleek design ; Accurate activity tracking ; 50 metre water resistant

No heart-rate monitor ; Background syncing missing ; No vibration alerts

The Garmin Vivomove is a wearable for those who want tech to infiltrate their lives in a less obvious, attention-seeking manner. It's an activity tracker that carries out its job in an understated manner and, most importantly, is a looker. It shows...

Garmin Vivomove review

 

The Garmin Vivomove may not be the best fitness tracker, but it's one of the most stylish wearables you'll see. Here's our review

Subtle and stylish looks ; No information overload ; Brilliant battery

Too simple for serious sports-fiends ; Missing a few features

The Garmin Vivomove lacks the smarts to satisfy fitness freaks, but it sure looks pretty

Garmin Vivomove review

  (Rating Hidden)

The Garmin Vivomove is a fitness tracker in disguise - it looks like a regular watch, but has basic activity tracking features such as counting your steps taken. Is it stylish and useful, or just too simple to be of any use? We put this fitness tracker...

Garmin vivomove review

 

The Garmin vivomove is a good looking activity tracker that resembles an analog watch. I am always curious to try these kinds of trackers because I feel they fit better with day to day work activities. This is the main reason I wear a Withings...

It's a nice watch, reliable and with great battery life but the lack of an alarm and unreliable sync let it down a bit.
