Monitor is easy to read (for me). If you need numbers straight up and down to read, it's not going to happen. If you can read from the side of your kid's homework to make certain it's correct, you'll be fine.
The clock is accurate and stays "on time". This is extremely helpful as many activity trackers do not have clocks so you start looking like the "cool chicks" in the 80's with 4 watches on if you're not careful. ;)
Heart rate strap is easy to use and automatically pairs. Even more important to me is it "unpairs" so I can put it on at home and then drive the 30-50 miles into the mountains to go hiking without wasting extra battery energy.
Accuracy is a bit spotty but better than 0 tracking at all.
Syncing to other sites has been pretty easy for me, especially myfitnesspal.com which is my "standard go to".
Heart rate monitor does NOT work in water - so if you're a swimmer like me, this is NOT the best tracker in the world. Unfortunately it appears short of $400ish you're not going to find one that does. Pick up a Polar and wear that and the Polar transmitter in the pool in addition to your Vivofit for the best tracking.
Parents and caregivers take note: this product does NOT track if you are pushing a stroller, cart, or wheelchair. At all. The best solution I've found is to take the tracker out of the wristband and place it on the inside of my ankle horizontally inside my sock. All other attempts at tracking have failed or been VERY inaccurate.
Mileage is REALLY inaccurate. I walk 1 mi. and it thinks it's 2.5. Pedometer is accurate, but apparently I'm the Jolly Green Giant and can cover massive amounts of territory with those steps.
Wrist strap is unreliable at best. I've had it fall off at least 3x in the past 2 weeks which scares me. I do NOT like having to go hunting for the product if I don't catch it right away. No real fix for this other than redesigning.
About the Sleep tracking - it wasn't like scientifically accurate as far as deciding when I went to sleep because if you lie still it will count it as sleep. But, if you kind of know when you went to sleep you can edit the hours in Garmin connect. We did, however, discover my child is a sleep walker when he wore it - ha ha! When he woke up with 97 steps or something and it showed he was awake for 11 minutes during the night. You can see your movement along with the light sleep/deep sleep periods. No REM tracking, however. I now bought the Vivosmart HR and you can also see your heart rate in the graph with the sleep which is more telling of dreaming or wakefulness with some interpretation. The auto sleep tracking is handy, but you do still put in the times of day that you will likely be asleep. Also for naps during the day under an hour you need to push the button until it says "SLEEP" before falling asleep. It doesn't set the timer right then, but just will begin assuming non-movement is sleep. When you wake up, you again press the button to get back to the regular screen. You can't go add a nap later in the garmin web or app interface. It will just show up as you being lazy.
Regarding the Heart Rate Strap that you can purchase bundled with it. It is NOT comfortable for women folk. I had a hard time getting it to begin reading a pulse but once it got started it was pretty good at hanging onto it. Accurate readings - more so than the Vivosmart HR which has a lag. The strap is hard plastic for a large portion for the front of the body and then has an elastic portion that goes under your arms and around your back. Not great for wearing a bra over the top and I couldn't get it to pick up a pulse anywhere other than right at the bra line. I felt like I had to wear it pretty tight to get a good reading, which I didn't enjoy either with being prone to heart burn. If I really wanted the accuracy of a chest strap I would opt to buy some other more comfortable ANT compatible strap that would work with this tracker.
