From the company that has been developing robust, dedicated wearable technology to improve training metrics for athletes for more than a decade comes the GPS smartwatch for the active lifestyle. Introducing vívoactive — the ultra-thin, lightweight smartwatch with built-in Garmin sports apps that you can wear every day to help you keep a healthy balance between work and life.

From Work to Workout

Play harder, work smarter, live better with vívoactive. Built-in sports apps keep you active while smart notifications allow you to stay in contact with pressing work matters — all so you can keep your life in balance. The high-resolution, color touchscreen stays readable in direct sunlight, so you can view your stats when you step out of the office for a run. The ultra-thin profile — 8 mm — is comfortable to wear all day and can easily transition from office to golf course. You won’t have to worry about vívoactive keeping up with your active days. The rechargeable battery lasts through all your activities with up to 3 weeks5 in watch/activity-tracking mode or up to 10 hours using GPS.

Built-in Sports Apps

vívoactive features built-in sports apps that track your stats — even when away from your phone. Simply tap to choose among GPS-enabled running, golfing and cycling apps plus swimming and activity tracking.

Hit the Ground Running

Whether you’re training for a 5K or just for life in general, the running app uses GPS to capture essential running data such as distance and pace. A built-in accelerometer and wrist-based speed and cadence trackers eliminate the need for a separate foot pod when running on an indoor track or treadmill and also when GPS is unavailable. You can set up vibration alerts for heart rate¹, pace and run/walk intervals. Other training features include Auto Lap and Auto Pause. Automatic sync with Garmin Connect Mobile gives you a post-run summary, including calories burned and if you scored any personal records, such as your fastest or longest run to date.

Get In Gear

The GPS-enabled cycling app measures time, distance, speed and calories. Compatible with sensors² such as speed, cadence and heart rate monitors to measure your progress on training rides as well as daily commutes.

Tee Off

Pair with your smartphone³ to download course maps from our golf course database — with more than 38,000 courses worldwide — to play favorite and new courses. The golfing app keeps maps updated and tallies hole number and par. GPS measures layup and dogleg distances, as well as distances to the front, middle and back of the green, to improve usability over the entire hole. Individual stroke play scorecard lets you see if you’re under or over par. Measure shot distance at the press of a button. Round timer counts up time on the course, while the built-in accelerometer tracks your steps.

Dive In

Auto Length accelerometer-based technology automatically gauges total and interval distance; laps; calories burned; session average, interval and length pace; and stroke count, including number of strokes per length and interval and session averages. Let the swimming app calculate your efficiency with swolf, which adds the time and the number of strokes it takes to swim a pool length. View your time and interval distance at a glance. Interval Count lets you seamlessly pause and then resume your workout.

The thin profile cuts through the water, and its 5 ATM water rating means you can swim, sweat and shower with it on, worry-free.

Step It Up

vívoactive follows your progress even when you’re not engaged in a specific activity. The activity tracking app tracks your steps to learn your current activity level, then assigns an attainable daily step count goal. As you meet your milestones, the device will adjust your goal for the next day. The red move bar appears on the display after 1 hour of inactivity and builds when you’ve been sitting too long. Just walk for a couple of minutes to reset the move bar. Set the sleep mode when you go to bed and vívoactive will monitor your rest. It also tracks your calories burned.

Stay Connected

vívoactive gently vibrates to alert you to all the same notifications you receive on your compatible Bluetooth-enabled device4. Receive caller ID and missed call information for incoming calls. Text messages include sender information and message. Email messages come with sender and subject. vívoactive also displays notifications from Facebook, Twitter and other social media platforms, as well as other mobile apps, including weather alerts and temperature. Simply touch and swipe the screen to read more, or clear the screen with the press of a button.

Advanced Smartwatch Features

vívoactive lets you control the tunes on your music player, locate your phone and let your friends and family track your activities in real time with Live Track. You can also remotely control your VIRB Elite action camera.

Custom Apps and Watch Faces

Personalize vívoactive with free downloads from our Connect IQ store. You can customize your watch face, add data fields and get apps and widgets that provide information at a glance.

Challenge Yourself

Stay up to date on your progress for each of the built-in activities with automatic syncs with Garmin Connect Mobile. You can earn virtual badges for extra motivation, join online challenges and connect, compete and compare with friends and family around the world. View your history and stats right on the smartwatch.

Show Your True Colors

vívoactive comes in basic black or bright white to coordinate with your philosophy of style. Swap out additional bands to show your true colors, or dress it up with a leather option in black or white.

Style Name: Without Heart Rate MonitorPackage Type: Standard PackagingColor: Black
I just finished my second run with the new Vivoactive. Although it's not apparently in stores yet, the Garmin booth at the Gate River Run expo had a few last weekend, so I bought one. I had been limping along with a Nike/TomTom GPS watch, but the non-replaceable band has been disintegrating for months and I had wired it together to get by until the new Vivoactive came out. Even with little time to get acquainted with the Vivoactive, I used it during the 15K the next morning and it performed perfectly.

Over the past ten years or so I've owned GPS watches from Timex, Garmin (twice) and Nike (twice). I've also been occasionally using my Galaxy S5 phone coupled with a Pebble watch and Endomondo for running and biking, so I can make some comparisons.

During the race, I had not yet had time to couple the Vivoactive to my phone, so I was using it merely as a stand-alone GPS watch. It's by far the smallest GPS watch I've owned and is comfortable and light, yet I was able to read the display without any problems. Like most watches in this class you can customize the data displays, but the standard one worked fine. The unit locked in to the satellites more quickly than any of my other watches and accuracy was as expected. At the end of the 15K it read 9.45 miles. That's about 1.3% high over the measured distance, and most runners know that's about right due to not being able to take the shortest route (especially in a race with 15,000 runners) and the small padding added by the certification process. I also wore my Nike watch at the same time, and it registered 9.43 miles.

Speaking of accuracy, I'm lucky to have an accurate, wheel-measured course starting at my driveway.

I don't do many reviews, but I have been waiting for this watch forever and I am VERY PLEASED!
UPDATE 4/3/15:
Still very happy.
See new photos.
Have discovered the watch will charge faster when using a USB 3 port, 29% to 100% in under 90 mins.
Took a little trial and error to work out which cycling data screens to select and use auto scroll while riding.
Auto sync via Nexus 5 to Connect and auto sync to Strava is awesome, much better than using the Edge 500 and having to manually connect and sync.
GPS and battery consumption is exactly as described. After 3 cycling sessions of 4 hours total, 1/2 hour of yard work GPS on, 24 hours of step and sleep tracking battery, lots of screen swiping and backlight use it was down from 100% to 32%. Display while riding was easily readable for the numbers like speed, HR etc, but the text description of the data line was tiny and for me unreadable while riding, luckily I know what they are eg. page 1 = HR, Speed, Distance, page 2 = Time, Elevation, Cadence, but Garmin should make the text bigger.
Just like on the Edge 500, you have to remember to select your activity and also press start. Once you have started an activity, I don't believe you can use any of the watches other functions, so you should add whatever data you need to see to your visible / auto scrolling screens. (like time of day).

I ran multiple comparison cycling GPS sessions with my Edge 500 (when the dodgy button worked) and my Virb Elite which also has GPS and ANT+ sensor recording and they all matched to within the second and a tenth of a mile which was probably down to my button pressing. Strava segment times were identical on every one. (I compared about 30 segment results).

Out of the box, I've been pretty impressed with this watch. As someone who tried ad returned the Fitbit Surge due to the lack of functionality at that cost, I found this to be a very solid addition. With that said, there are some quirks and improvements to be had.

Activity Tracking - seems solid. When compared with the Fitbit Flex I had, it was pretty much right on with minimal variation. I actually think it calculates more accurate distance in general activity tracking than the Fitbit. This is based on me entering identical stride lengths in each app but Fitbit appearing to show a greater distance despite the calculations not adding up.

GPS/Workouts - only 2 so far but GPS came up quickly and tracked my run very well. The alerts for pace and distance worked well. I like the display that the screen offers and the fact that it can be customized. Does not seem that this supports workouts created on Garmin Connect though (at least for now)...this is one area where Garmin can improve.

Heart Rate monitor - this does not come with a HR monitor but I coupled this with my Schosce Rhythm Plus. This was extremely easy to set up and seemed to work well.

Watch Apps - Major potential here. Not too much Garmin IQ offers right now other than some Watch faces and such but this is where Garmin can really get some traction if they can get solids apps. Right now the ones that came loaded for workouts seem to be adequate...the apps that you can get will supplement the data that you can see (e.g. different ways of displaying heart rate, elevation, etc.). I'm also a fan of the built in Weather widget. It seems very convenient that I can look at my watch and quickly get the current weather as well as the immediate forecast for the coming hours.
