Why should you buy the Garmin Vivosport fitness tracker?
Garmin is one of the most reliable brands on the fitness tracker market thanks to the accuracy and reliability of their products. The Vivosport is a perfect example of this: it is not trying to sell itself as a smartwatch but delivers on everything you'd expect from a fitness tracker.
The list of features goes on forever:
- Steps and distance tracking
- Calories burned
- Sleep monitoring
- Daily goals
- Activity timer
- Smart notifications
- Heart-rate monitoring
- Floors climbed and intensity
The touchscreen display is big enough so you can check all the information at a glance and operate the watch without having to use your phone. The built-in GPS also helps you get away from your phone, at least for the times when you are exercising.
One novelty but fun thing is the fitness age calculator. Not something you should base life decisions on, but if you are 35 and the Vivosport calculates your fitness age as 45, you might want to look into exercising a bit more (and maybe dial down the amount of full-English breakfasts you have per week).
Once data has been collected, it's time to check the trends in the Garmin Connect app. Here, you can find all the data collected from your fitness tracker displayed in charts and also some handy recommendations on how to improve your cardio performance and sleep quality.
