Garmin Vivosmart HR+ review


Does the HR+ have the substance to make up for its lack of style?

Six day battery life ; GPS and heart rate monitor

Design is lacking ; Data could have more depth

A great device for runners, Garmin packs GPS smarts and spot-on tracking into a simple band that favors substance over style.

Garmin Vivosmart HR+ review: A fully-packed fitness tracker


There's no shortage of fitness trackers on the market. Since the launch of the Nike FuelBand , just about everyone has had a crack at this lifestyle end of the sports device market. The Garmin Vivosmart HR+ is something of a surprise package, stuffing...

GPS and heart rate tracking, compact size, reasonable battery life, solid phone connection, notifications

Not the best looking device, Garmin Connect is a little dour, display a little small

The Garmin Vivosmart HR+ is something of a surprise package, stuffing a lot of functionality into a device that's only a little larger than some other fitness tracker bands.

Garmin Vivosmart HR Plus


Since the Apple Watch arrived, it seems that every company in the wearables market has been hell bent on making a device that can handle it all – from fitness tracking to Twitter notifications – while also looking like a high-end fashion item.

If you're a hardcore fitness fanatic, this is the wearable for you.

Garmin's Vivosmart HR+ is a slim fitness tracker with GPS (hands-on)


Garmin has yet another new fitness tracker. For those keeping count, that's six in five months. The fitness company on Monday announced the Garmin Vivosmart HR+, a cousin to the already released and reviewed Vivosmart HR. It's available now for $220,...

  (Rating Hidden)

The Garmin Vivosmart HR+ is chock-full of features, including built-in GPS so it can be used without relying on your smartphone. It also has plenty of advanced running functions. It costs £50 more than the regular Garmin Vivosmart, so is it worth it?...

Garmin Vivosmart HR+ review: A brilliant fitness band still well worth the price


Garmin's Vivosmart HR+ fitness band has it all, and while pricey, it represents super value

The Garmin Vivosmart HR+ is hands down the best fitness tracker I’ve had the pleasure of using. It’s comfortable, looks stylish in an understated way, is practical when out and about, has great stamina and has an app that number crunchers will love.

Garmin Vivosmart Hr+ Review


A good pick for those that do more adventurous outdoor activities and want a tracker that can keep up

Rugged, waterproof, built-in GPS

Bulky, not the most comfortable, difficulty syncing with the app

The rugged and waterproof is a great option for the outdoor adventurer that wants to track their physical activities. This model particularly excels at tracking various physical activities, and has a nice display that is easy on the eyes and in all...

Garmin Vivosmart HR+ review


A top tier tracker that's got some GPS smarts too

Awesome App ; Marathon Battery life ; GPS on the cheap

Big & bulky ; Not so comfy ; Nags worse than your Mum

A superb tracker packed with features - it's just not so great to wear day-to-day

Garmin vivosmart HR+ Review: A Rare Miss by Garmin


The Garmin vivosmart HR+ works as advertised: Its GPS and heart rate monitor are accurate, its display is easily readable in sunlight and it has great battery life. But it's a device in search of a market. It's too bulky (and expensive) as a 24/7...

Accurate GPS, Heart Rate Monitor ; Traditional watch clasp ; Outdoor-readable display

Bulky ; Expensive

It tracks your heart rate, has built-in GPS and delivers smartphone notifications, but the Garmin vivosmart HR+ doesn’t meet the needs of any group very well.
