Comments about Garmin vivofit with Heart Rate Monitor:

I bought this so I could increase, then maintain a higher activity level. I have used other products before. I love that the screen is always on and I don't have to charge it!! I love having the extra bands to switch up look of it up and it fits very well.

The heart rate monitor is too big even at the smallest setting which makes getting an accurate heart rate difficult. I wish there was an alarm feature with in the band.

    Comments about Garmin vivofit with Heart Rate Monitor:

    Garmin really needs to improve this product. Nice that it offers a heart rate monitor, but the interface on the computer is confusing and not user friendly. I continue to have issues synching and uploading my workouts. Really disappointing from such a major player.

    Pedometer doesn't work properly

    • Unreliable

    Best Uses

      Comments about Garmin vivofit with Heart Rate Monitor:

      Heart rate monitor is accurate and I enjoy the sleep tracking. The Pedometer overestimates your steps, sometimes doubling them. Other times you get a red line of inactivity even when you've been walking for the last 1/2 hour. It is grossly inaccurate. Also, this is not compatible with my Razr M by Droid. It should be compatible with all newer phones. Very disappointed.

      Comments about Garmin vivofit with Heart Rate Monitor:

      I like the fact that you don't have to charge it every week, but it does need to keep up with the Fitbit flex and the UP regarding food intake and being able to sync with apps like Runkeeper and others. Overall I am happy with the Garmin Vivofit and to date no issues. We bought three when they first came out so well shall see how it measures up to the others.

      Comments about Garmin vivofit with Heart Rate Monitor:

      I got this as an alternative to my bulky Garmin 310XT for everyday wear and cross-training, and as a device to remind me to get up and walk at work. It is super easy to set up and sync with the Garmin Connect app which is pretty easy to use and will also allow you to use other Garmin devices. The instructions that come with the Vivofit and the video on line are pretty minimal on detail, so if you need more information on features, good luck. Hoepfully the next version will link up better with GPS have better instruction on that feature. Nice option: interchangeable wrist bands so you are not stuck with one color (the set of extra bands are $25).

      I wear the product as I would wear my watch. It does measure distance when cycling or spinning. It does not have a stopwatch. So, I need to wear my running watch with the band.

      Wear it 24/7 but purchased it particularly for treadmill workouts. Gives accurate calorie expenditure (compared to Suunto with Firstbeat software), correlates with Polar Loop vis-a vis steps and HRM, but not having to worry about charging makes my day.

            Was difficult to set up on my iPhone (had to try 5 times). Does not sync on its own. Not back lit, which I knew, but even if remotely dark it is difficult to read. The band, while comfortable, looks really cheap.
