  • Nice big screen!
    Reviewed by Jdw07d - June 19, 2018

    I’ve had this Garmin for about three weeks, after my Viviactive HR died while I was swimming. I like the big screen, it’s easy to read but the battery life is poor, I have to charge it about every 4 days and when I’m using the GPS a little bit sooner than that. The vibration is strong, but the scroll tool on the left is constantly going off and moving the screen around, something I plan on adjusting in the future. My twin sister got the same one after she liked mine, the white and rose gold looks very professional, but I have the black and silver and I like mine as well. Overall I like it a lot, just wish the battery life was a little longer!

  • Excellent watch with great functionality
    Verified BuyerReviewed by wdosprey - June 16, 2019

    This is a replacement for my Vivoactive HR. Style is so much nicer in round rather than the polygon shape. It’s easier to read and allows for a better data arrangement depending on which watch face is selected. Using Garmin IQ, there are multiple watch face selections and a multitude of apps. Being able to swipe the face or the side to move to other screens is a nice touch. The heart rate monitor is quite accurate. Some of the indoor apps like treadmill walking/running are a bit clunky. The only thing missing is a BP/heart monitor. All in all, it’s a great watch at a good price. I certainly recommend it and would definitely purchase it again.

  • Disappointing
    Reviewed by kskamp - December 4, 2019

    I bought this on Black Friday and received it yesterday after waiting more than 6 months to save up for it. Such a disappointment--the screen is not well calibrated, causing issues trying to select activities, or even get the screen to respond; the alarm did not go off this morning; the type on the screen is far too large for the space, which weirdly cuts off messages, and there doesn't appear to be a way to correct that setting; and the set up for favorite activities is not intuitive, not that I can start them anyway since I can't click on that part of the screen. Very disappointing since my mother and fiance both love their Garmin watches.
