I was looking for a stylish fitness tracker watch. Not a sport band, a real (analog) watch. I have always worn a watch, so in the past when I have worn a sport band fitness tracker I wore 2 devices on my wrist, which was just annoying. It seemed like the best solution would be to find a device to replace my standard watch, not to be worn alongside it.
At first I looked at stylish watches that had fitness tracking with or without other smart watch capabilities. These included those made by Withings, Vector, Fossil, Timex, Huawei, Nevo, Runtastic, and Garmin. Eventually I decided I didn't WANT smart watch capabilities... mainly because although I can see the utility of notifications to your wrist at times, I almost always have my phone on me and don't really want to be reached THAT much. Plus, getting a smart watch comes with 2 distinct negatives: (1) much worse battery life due to frequent syncing, notifications, etc. (2) constantly needing to pair with your phone (meaning lots and lots of "pairing error" messages when out of range and needing to re-pair frequently). That is fine if you want a smart watch, but I really just wanted the fitness tracker. That ruled-out the Vector, Fossil, Huawei, Nevo, and Runtastic smart watches. I was left with 3 options: Withings Activite, Timex Metropolitan+, or Garmin Vivomove. At first I intended to buy the Withings, which is smaller and more feminine looking than the Timex, but has mixed reviews on accuracy and only a 6-8 month battery life. It also has no second hand (this may be minor for some people, but I actually use my second hand at work at times). I considered the Timex Metropolitan+, but it is a much larger watch and since it has a busy face and only comes in black or orange/brown, it just looks very masculine. It also does not have a sleep tracker, if that is important to you. I was so glad that I found the Vivomove before ordering the Withings or Timex. It is really the perfect combination of the other two.
Here are my favorite features of the Vivomove:
(1) It is stylish but has an accurate fitness tracker. I love being able to see my progress (0-100%) on the watch face. I only sync to my phone once or twice per day because I can always see where I stand on the step tracker. It is also very motivating to see my progress all the time.
(2) It has a 2nd indicator on the watch face which creeps up when you've been sedentary a while. You just need to get moving for a bit to clear it. Also very motivating.
(3) No unnecessary bells and whistles. No smart features. No vibrating alarm. Some people may want these things, but I don't want to sacrifice battery life for things I don't need. This is why the Vivomove battery life is supposed to be ~1 year as opposed to the 6-8 months claimed by it's similar competitor the Withings Activite.
(4) It looks nice. It comes in various colors to give different looks. It has a quick-release watch band so you can interchange bands. I bought the white Vivomove and substituted a metal link band for daily wear (I still use the white sport band for exercise). Although it is a fairly large watch, it is not too thick and looks stylish and feminine in my opinion (see photos).
(5) It is waterproof and can even be worn in the shower or swimming (though I have not done this yet).
(6) The app is actually decent. I like the way the app incrementally increases my step goal day by day. If you don't like that, you can set your own manually. Syncing is easy and has worked well for me. The sleep tracker may not be 100% accurate, but it is comparable to other devices I have used and gives me a good idea.
Overall I am thrilled with my purchase!
Update: Two weeks in and it's still working great. I had one day where it wasn't syncing, but I checked the Garmin website and it said to try turning bluetooth off and on in the phone, and that worked. Bluetooth on my phone is consistently wonky anyway, so that was no surprise.
Update 2: One thing I haven't figured out is how it syncs data with MyFitnessPal and Strava. These are the only two external programs that it shares with. I road my bike this morning and tracked it in Strava (my first time using it), but it's not showing up in Garmin Connect. So my watch is blinking the red bar at me, telling me to quit being such lazy bum, and I'm like "Dang, watch, I just rode 5 miles. Cut me some slack." Anyway, I'm still fiddling with that feature.
Update 3: Still no luck syncing between Garmin Connect and MyFitnessPal. I'm honestly not sure what info these apps are supposed to share, but as far as I can tell the answer is just a blank stare. They both seem to be unaware of the others' existence. Doesn't matter much to me, but if that's a big deal to you, further research is probably warranted.
The other feature I'm unclear on is the setting for "Auto Activity Detection". I have it turned on, but the watch has never auto-detected anything but steps as far as I can tell. Maybe it detects bike rides and jogging, thinks to itself "nice job, Chris!" and then goes about its business. But really, I'd like some sort of acknowledgement in the app that I did the activity. Otherwise how will I prove to my wife that I actually did something today?
Update 4: Today I went swimming wearing my watch for the first time. Supposedly it is 5ATM (50M) water resistant, suitable for swimming. And when I say "swimming" I mean I took my kids to the community pool and splashed around with them for 20 minutes before getting out. Came home and the display was all fogged up. I let it sit out for a little while and the fog mostly went away, but the steps bar and the red notification bar slowly faded away to nothing. Now they are totally invisible and the watch won't even sync. The last of the pictures I posted with this review is from today, 3:30pm, after wearing the watch all day. It's not foggy looking because the picture is blurry, that's actual fog inside the watch 2 and half hours after being in the pool. Neither bar is working, so now I just have a $150 watch that (at least for now) just tells the time. GARBAGE!
If anyone bought this watch based on my earlier review, I sincerely apologize. ***DO NOT BUY THIS WATCH***

Cons: I'm now returning this watch for the second time. The first watch came in with a scratch on the face right on top of the Garmin logo.Read more
