      Review by Edda Lentner (Posted on 11/19/15)

      Wonderful watch that can be customized for pretty much any workout. Just the connection with my phone is wonky, therefore a 4 star rating. I have an HTC which might be the reason for the connection issues.
      I love that I can setup 10&1's, even track indoor running, biking and eliptical. I havent even discovered all of the functionality yet, but am loving the watch already.
      There is an arrow that will lead me back to the starting point should I be lost on my run.
      I no longer need to take my phone with me as the watch will work without it.
      Stepcount and reminder to move is very neat.
    • All around pretty decent

      My old Garmin 305 (which had poor battery life) seems like a prison leg band in comparison to the slim and light vivoactive. I like the look of the "watch" and once I figured out the settings on the Garmin Connect app, I have been surprised at the usefulness of viewing texts and notifications that have been beamed from my smartphone, without removing my phone from my pocket. FYI, I looked at the iWatch before purchasing this, but the Garmin won out. Also to see who's calling is cool too, and I can decide to stop my run to talk if I wish. I am surprised that I have liked the step counter, and that has pushed me out of the house to walk the dog more often.
      I run and cycle and golf. Here is my only concern. The device is set to Metric, which works well for me for both running and biking. I don't even mind the lap function of miles vibrating on my wrist (every 1.61km). But obviously when I use the vivoactive for golf, the measurement of meters is just dumb. So it is just a matter of getting into the settings to change from km to miles when playing golf and all is well. Hopefully Garmin will put out an update to have separate settings for golf.
    • J'aime beaucoup ma Vivoactive

      Review by Fran (Posted on 5/13/15)

      J'ai recu ma Vivoactive depuis 1 semaine. Les activités utilisées sont la marche et le golf. La marche fonctionne vraiment bien; elle enregistre le temps ansi que la distance sans intervention de ma part autre que commencer. Pour le golf, il y plus de manipulation. L'application a trouvé le terrain sans difficulté et lorsque j'ai commencé à jouer, elle a affiché les détails du trou ou je me trouvais. Ce que j'ai moins aimé c'est qu'il n'est pas possible de retourner au trou précédent afin de modifier le score. Dans l'ensemble, c'est un bon produit, facile à utiliser.
    • Great Sport Companion!

      Review by LaurelM (Posted on 5/10/15)

      So far I am delighted with this Product. Easy setup... nice to have a connection with the smartphone while cycling or running. I have modified the face to suit me and love using this while swimming!! So far the only downside is that the battery life is not living up to the expectation although it is better then anything else I have tried!! Highly recommended!
    • How did I get by without it?

      Review by Brian Langlois (Posted on 4/17/15)

      This is so light and convenient. Never forgetting my watch for a workout again. Seems more accurate on pool swims than the 910xt. Was concerned what it would do to my phone battery but actually seems to save it as I don't need to open the phone to check every time I get an email. Only complaint so far is that it doesn't appear you can use the GPS during a swim which means I can't use it for open water swims
