The Garmin Vivoactive is a fantastic running watch that offers GPS tracking, the ability to read the LCD screen in direct sunlight (which is sometimes difficult for digital devices otherwise), and a high-resolution touch screen to keep you informed on your runs. This running watch features a wrist heart rate monitor, which is ideal for hassle free running; however, the heart rate monitor is not available while swimming. But that doesn’t mean that the Vivoactive is waterproof, which is a bonus. The running watch by Garmin will push notifications from your smartphone to your running watch so you can stay connected on the go: get text, email, and phone call notifications on the big bright screen of the running watch so you can see everything at a glance.
This running watch is great for multiple sports, so if you are looking for a running watch that can take you beyond the road and track, the Garmin Vivoactive might be the running watch for you. This watch has a great battery life, lasting almost 8 days with regular use. There are also a number of apps that turn your running watch into biking, skiing, snowboarding, rowing, golfing, and paddle-boarding watch in seconds. Download the apps to your running watch and the world opens up to you and keeps up with you while you are on the go.
