Beat Yesterday, Every Day
vívosmart HR+ learns your current activity level, then assigns an attainable daily step goal. As you meet your milestones, it will adjust your goal for the next day, gradually nudging you toward a healthier lifestyle.
Smart Activity Tracker with Wrist-based Heart Rate plus GPS
Turn your steps into strides with vívosmart HR+, the GPS activity tracker with Elevate wrist heart rate technology. Not only does it count steps, calories, floors climbed and intensity minutes, it uses GPS satellites to track how far and how fast you go during almost any activity — from running to rollerblading. Also includes a move bar that gives you a vibrating reminder to get up and move when you've been inactive for too long. Stay connected with smart notifications that include email, text, call, social media, calendar alerts and more, right on your wrist.
Activity Tracking with GPS
vívosmart HR+ is different from our other activity trackers — not because it lacks any of their features, but because of what it includes that they don't. Having a device that uses built-in GPS to monitor your activity makes for more accurate data. vívosmart HR+ quickly acquires satellite signals to track you during your favorite activity or workout, giving you precise data about how far you traveled, how fast and where — even under tree cover.
vívosmart HR+ automatically syncs with your smartphone throughout the day to save your stats to our free online community. Simply download Garmin Connect Mobile to your phone or log on to Garmin Connect via your desktop, where you can save, plan and share your activity and beat yesterday in your daily step count. Connect with other users to challenge and compete. For detailed calorie tracking, you can create an account at MyFitnessPal and link it to your Garmin Connect account. This allows you to compare calories consumed to total calories burned, which vívosmart HR+ records throughout the day.

1. Waterproof up to 50 meters so you an wear in the shower, pool and beach. Charge 2 cannot, so yes if you are comfortable taking it off every day or multiple times, as well as, unconcerned about a spill ruining your watch, the charge 2 is still okay.
2. The software is literally just as good as fit bits, my dad has one. Most critics say fit bit software has a slight edge, I don't see where that is exactly.
3. Features charge 2 doesn't have: music control, weather, notifications (custom), which I thought could be a con, but you can actually customize what you see on the UI in the app.This way you can pick and choose which features are right for you. I was concerned about notifications, but you can actually edit what those are as well.
4. Find your phone is actually very useful and has come in handy, You have to be in bluetooth range for it to work. If you try it out of range and are looking, it will connect when you do come in range, and notify you. So, just find it again and it will work. I was 20-30 feet without a wall and it worked, which is best bt range I have ever seen.
1. The screen, I hear, is fragile and scratches. I didn't bother taking the risk and get a screen protector. I got a screen protector with the device, IQ shield, and it works great.
2. The brightness and contrast is nowhere near that of the Charge 2 quality. So if you have significant trouble reading without classes, this may not be for you.
3. Bands are not changeable, unlike the charge 2.
I've been using the GPS function daily for at least 30 minutes (~4 hours a week, walks, runs, bike rides) and the battery lasts about 4 days before I get the low battery symbol. GPS can take a while for it to connect (a few seconds to 10 minutes) and I've noticed lately that it's taking longer to connect and I don't know if it's because the device itself is getting older or because the weather isn't the most ideal and I'm wearing multiple layers over it. GPS is always within 0.2 miles of Runkeeper, MapMyRun, Strava or Google Maps.
I've had the 24hr HR function on since the day I bought it. The HR isn't super accurate but it's in the ballpark most of the time. Look, it's a wrist HR monitor which isn't going to be as accurate as an oximeter or a chest strap. But I've used both in the past and hated it (especially since it took 6 months for the chest strap scar to go away after I stopped using it). Do you really want to run/bike with a chest strap or worse, an oximeter on your finger?! I personally don't need the HR to be within 1bpm of my real HR (+/- 10bpms is sufficient for me). Sleep tracking isn't that accurate or informational on a day-to-day basis, but after 6 months of tracking sleep every day you can tell which nights were abnormal. I love that I don't ever have to take it off. I've showered with it every day with no problems (I've never swam with it). The Vivosmart is easily fooled into thinking you've accomplished your step or stair goals for the day, but I'm not too picky about that. As long as I exceed the "goal" by 500-1,000 steps I think I'm still meeting my actual goal.
Specific issues other reviews mentioned:
- People have complained about scratches on the screen. I don't have a screen protector and other than a little nick on the wristband at the top right corner above my screen, it's free of damage. I'm not particularly careful with it either (I have a dog, cats, and work with caustic materials - hence the gloves).
- Be careful of the charging ports getting rusty. The manual states this can cause damage to the battery and cause it to malfunction (not hold a charge, not charge at all). Since I shower with it every day I wash the band with soap pretty well and try to clean the rust off a bit before I charge.
- The Move bar doesn't reset unless you are constantly moving for a total of 2 minutes. If you walk for a minute, stop for a minute and then walk for another minute it will not reset the Move bar. So yes, you may have been moving around in the last hour but not long enough to reset the bar.
- If it thinks you sitting on the couch for 2 hours in the evening was the start of your sleep cycle, you can manually enter when you actually went to bed in the app. It will display the correct time you went to bed and show your movements.
- I've had this 6 months and I haven't had any problems with my band yet. Knock on wood.
All in all I really love the Vivosmart HR+. I really miss it during the couple of hours I have to charge it every week.
1. Sleep tracking. I took the tracker off for a few days. Although no steps were recorded, it did record me "sleeping" for 11 hours per day (from 2:30 PM - to 1:30 AM). It did this for two days. Very strange.
2. "Intense" workout minutes - after a run, my heart rate remains elevated. Not dangerously, but in workout range. It gave me credit for working out for 20 additional minutes. No, it didn't just double my credit for a vigorous workout - I get that. Even though I stopped the timer, it continued to credit me with workout minutes, I'm assuming b/c my heart rate was elevated.
3. Screen is too sensitive.It continually moved thru the screen while I showered when the water hit it. At some point, it even turned on Music on my phone. I could not adjust the sensitivity or stop it from accidentally turning off the music (there's probably a way, but I didn't find it in 20 minutes of reviewing the manual online and the forum. I simply gave up.
4. Size: I knew it was bigger than the Fitbit, and I bought the HR+ b/c it was supposed to be the slimmest model of the Garmins. Even so, it just felt big on my wrist, and it's uncomfortable, especially compared to Fitbit.
Heart rate did seems to work - it was close to the Polar chest strap I use with the Elliptical.
