Garmin Devices



Recommended Posts

I am looking to buy a wearable device from Garmin and am currently considering 3 devices: 1) Vivosmart HR+; 2) Vivoactive HR; and 3) Forerunner 235. Does anyone have any experience with these Garmin products or others? I am not a runner, so I think that the Forerunner 235 might not be worth the cost. I would like to monitor heart rate, and steps at a minimum.

Love my vivofit...but it is an earlier version. Love: how it syncs, how it keeps track of steps, how it syncs with my fitness pal to help keep track with my calories still available after exercise...and especially that I NEVER have to take it off, even wear it in the shower, and it runs on a watch battery so I don't have to charge it ever. but being female, I wish it was a little better looking since I haven't taken it off in 6 months.

Have a VivoSmart here, really like it. Garmin makes some solid fitness trackers. I had originally planned on picking up a Fitbit but the fact that the VivoSmart was waterproof (the HR+ is also) sealed the deal for me. I never take mine off.

I have a vivofit2. I love mine for all the reasons that @@freelee mentioned above. Its all the reasons I went with garmin instead of fitbit. Now that I am running, I wish I had paid the extra for the HR version, but when I bought it, I went with the most basic that had the time on it so it doubles as a watch. If and when it dies, or perhaps when I just feel a bit rich, I will likely upgrade to an HR version. I do have to say that it seems like there are lots more options with HR than there were when I bought mine in December.

I ended up ordering the Garmin Vivoactive HR. The features that I liked include heart rate monitoring from the wrist, step counting, sleep monitoring, and large display.

I really like the "Move" nag

      My 3 babies and my little "niece". Took on a babysitting job this past weekend. She is super tiny compared to my 3 biggies. Sitting on command for treat-os!
       
      Pre-op Liquid - Day 2 
      It was very hard today...I'm feeling some type of way from not eating the meals I was supposed to before the pre-op diet. My sister got stuck in Dallas a week before my diet and we were supposed to go on a nice dinner, but that never happened. I have super bad dry mouth and bathroom breaks are more frequent.

      Pre-op Liquid Diet - Day 1
      Had my morning cup of 8 oz Regular Orange Juice. I am ready!!! I did have 3 bites of my fiance's cheesecake last night for dinner. It was so yummy but with my former sleeve it didn't allow me any more bites.
