Garmin Vivomove Review

The Vivomove is a smart analog watch has a nice construction yet athletes would like to see a slimmer design. According to joggers, the feature that stands out for them the most is the MOVE bar for indoor run tracking. The wearable is elegant to wear anywhere but is this all that the fitness fanatics have to say. No, there is much more to this watch than its design.

Pros / What Customers Like:

  • For many users, the biggest criticize, they had in the past is the design. However, things have changed with this device as the majority of people find analog watch fantastic wear with even a suit.
  • The fact that you can buy the wearable in three designs from a sporty, premium, to classic is a loved aspect by different athletes.
  • Many customers found the silicon band comfortable and the fact that they could swat it out with another fantastic. The wristband comes highly recommended for swimmers and has a 5ATM waterproof rating.
  • The analog watch does not have a touch screen, but users found the two progress bars built into the display helpful.
  • Another benefit mentioned by professionals is the crown that makes setting the time and synchronizing data to your phone easier and very reliable.
  • Health and fitness users found the automatic activity tracking to count steps and monitor your sleep accurate. To add to the list, it can also calculate your distance when used with indoor workouts.
  • Energy driven consumers praised the MOVE bar as it keeps them motivated to keep you on your feet.
  • One more emphasis is the battery life as athletes found there is no need of replacing the battery and offers you up to a year of use.

Cons / What Customers Don't Like:

  • Even while the smartwatch connects to your iPhone or Android, the Garmin Connect app is restricted according to users as it only has basic features on offer.
  • An additional negative is the fact that the watch does not have smartphone notifications and athletes would love to have this function while working out.


The Vivomove timepiece and fitness tracker might have a bulky design, but if you need a wearable that is elegant, this is the one to have. The fitness tracker is worth considering even while there remains room for improvement. We are certain that Garmin will be looking into what consumers have to say.
