Garmin Vivomove HR Review

Compared to the older Vivomove the Vivomove HR is a vigorous smartwatch and great looking as well. Consumers say they have received a good balance of using it as a fitness tracker and still make it possible to wear out.

Pros / What Customers Like:

  • Compared to Garmin’s previous design failures, consumers are more than pleased with the Vivomove HR design, as it looks gorgeous.
  • Athletes had no problem with the weight, especially runners, as they could not feel it on their wrist while running.
  • All sports users love the fact that you can lift your wrist or tap the display making it light up. The great thing is that your fitness tracking data is available on the screen for you to see. Even the clock hands do not get in the way.
  • The great thing all professionals love is the heart rate sensor and stress tracker giving you a score of 0 – 100.
  • Hikers love the Garmin VIRB support as they can take pictures while outdoors and is always available on the Garmin Connect app.
  • People found the all-day wellness category appreciated while harder fitness workout users found it lacking some features.
  • Joggers said that using the heart rate is an improvement compared to the older device and offers you good results and they could see the pace of their run in the app.
  • Bodybuilders found the strength training tracking a nice extra feature while working out.

Cons / What Customers Don't Like:

  • The biggest complaint joggers had is that the screen is barely readable in sunlight. The problem is not in setting the brightness, but the glass has a glare.
  • You can receive different notifications on the screen, but most sports users found they could not filter them to alert you on certain notifications.
  • Another downer is that you cannot store music and most runners found this displeasing.


The Vivomove HR received some minor upgrades and has a great design loved by all. If you want a premium feel and innovative fitness tracker design this wearable is perfect. Hardcore fitness users may find it lacks some features, but if you are an all-day wellness user, it is sure to keep you happy.
