    Es un reloj increíble… No soy fisicoculturista pero tengo una entrenadora así y me ha servido muchísimo!! Está súper lindo estéticamente, muy femenino, fácil de usar y entender su app, no puedo asegurar que sea muy exacto pero da mucha buena idea de la actividad realizada, mi único pero es la batería que no dura mucho si usas para el deporte…. Es lo único pero hasta ahorita 2 semanas de uso me ha fascinado!!!
    Depende cada opinión pero en la mía es muy bueno, y por la marca lo vale!!

    Después de 3 semanas de uso puedo decir que mi primera impresión da un aspecto de ser frágil, pero hasta el momento de ha tocado darle 2 buenos golpes y no presenta ningún rayón, es cómodo de usar y comparando los datos de pasos, pisos, frecuencia y calorías son muy parecidos a los que me arroja mi pasada fitbit Charge 2. La alarma por vibración es poco tenue para despertar en comparación de la fitbit. Me gustaría que la interacción fuera por un sistema parecido al del vivoactive 3 por botones y scroll captativo lateral para evitar tocar la pantalla. Pero en términos generales me gusta y me resulta útil.

    Love this because it looks like a really lovely watch, rather than a techy smart watch. Glamorous and functional. I love it, and gets lots of compliments.

    Certe moins perfectionné que les montres dispendieuses sur le marché, elle répond à mes besoins tout en conservant un look tout usage.

    I bought this watch with the intention of tracking my steps, calories burned and heart rate, but I didn’t want a smart watch like an Apple (which I also have). I loved the idea of this watch masquerading as a regular fashionable watch rather than a high-tech one.

    Pros:
    *lovely colour. I chose rose gold and it is a nice metallic pink with white casing.
    *its pedometer is accurate and consistent with other devices I have (Apple Watch, another Garmin).
    *its heart rate is accurate and consistent with other devices. I much prefer the HR stats and data from this Garmin device than my Apple Watch (series 6).
    *it accurately times and automatically records periods of exercise. Most of the time it gets the type of exercise right (e.g., walking, running). Sometimes it comes up with funny suggestions like swimming for trampolining or, more commonly, elliptical for trampolining! But the duration is always accurate.
    *the display is easy to read in most situations. In bright sunlight it’s hard to read, but I think that’s true of most devices on the market.
    *it’s easy to pair and sync.
    *battery life is really good. I can go around 5 days without a charge which includes hours of intense exercise each week.
    *connects via Bluetooth easily and automatically once set up.
    *vibrates when your iPhone rings or receives Aussage. This is a brilliant feature for someone like me who often doesn’t hear their phone because it’s buried deep in my handbag or I’m away from my desk.

    Cons:
    *the silicone band! This is horrible! It rips your skin off, causes a rash and bleeding. Please Garmin review these bands! I am not the only person commenting on this. I don’t see why they can’t include a leather band as standard (I’ve purchased both a leather band and a Garmin suede band – so soft and comfortable).
    *the price is expensive especially considering it doesn’t make calls, send texts, etc, it’s a bit pricey.

    Definitely recommend investing in a glass watch face protector. It’ll save your watch!

    Overall, this is a well made, well designed hybrid fitness tracker watch which I highly recommend minus the silicone band!

    **Update**
    21 months after I originally purchased the watch, the display suddenly started to fail (blurred display, extra lines, freezing) and for the first time the low heart rate alert going off unnecessarily when walking (my HR was 102!) Sadly the warranty is only for 12 months, not two years. I am greatly disappointed in this, hence the downgrading to three stars as I expect more for the money and a great longevity. I absolutely loved this watch 🙁

    So far I’ve been quite impressed with this watch.

    I’m rating it 5 stars, even though I have a couple of minor complaints, because I think it’s only fair to rate this in comparison to other products on the market, rather than in comparison to an ideal version of this product. The fact is, if you want a fitness tracker / smartwatch that looks good, this is the only viable option that I’ve found. Any other smartwatch looks terrible, by comparison. This does everything I’d want a smartwatch to do, while looking pretty classy. For that alone, I have to give it 5 stars.

    Visually, it looks like a normal watch, which is exactly what I’m looking for. This essentially *is* a normal watch most of the time, except that in the background it’s quietly gathering all my fitness tracking data, and it can function as a smartwatch as well. I haven’t used any other smartwatches, so I don’t have anything to compare this to in that regard, but this does most of the things I’d want my smartwatch to do, without too much fuss. I can see notifications without having to pull my phone out of my pocket, and I can quickly check the weather, or my steps, as well.

    It’s been a while since I wore a watch on a regular basis, but I don’t think the size or weight of this one are out of line with what I’d expect from a nice watch. By default, the screen is set to wake up when you raise your wrist to look at your watch, but disabling that was one of the first things that I did. Having the display constantly lighting up would defeat the purpose of having something that looks like a normal watch, that I could glance at discreetly to check the time. Now it only wakes up when I double-tap the watch face (this sometimes takes a few attempts, but there may be a bit of a learning curve, here), or when it flashes a notification from my phone.

    The interface and customization options are pretty good. It has one widget that you can have set to show when it wakes up (before the hands have moved out of the way), and then a bunch more widgets that you can swipe through once you’ve unlocked the watch. You can set which widgets it shows you (so, I was able to turn off the music screen, since I’m never going to control my music through my watch).

    There’s also a menu that you can access by long-pressing the watch-face, once it’s unlocked, but navigating this is usually more trouble than it’s worth. It lets you adjust some settings without using the paired app on your phone, but I don’t imagine a lot of people are buying smartwatches if they don’t already have a smartphone. It also lets you access things like timers, screen brightness, and ‘Do Not Disturb’ mode. I definitely wish these were set up as widgets, so that they’d be easier to access. As they are now, it’s much faster to start a timer by pulling out my phone, than it is by navigating my watch menu. ‘Do Not Disturb’ doesn’t come up that often, but when it does it would be nice to have a widget that allowed me to set it for the next X hours, rather than having to navigate to it through an awkward menu, twice.

    The only other thing that bugs me a little is that every time I double-tap the watch face to wake it up and see the weather, it feels the need to remind me that I can swipe to unlock the watch. I understand that this might be useful for people who are just learning to use it, but there should be an option somewhere to turn this off. I know how to unlock it. I don’t need to get this instruction every time, especially not at the expense of being able to see the information I was looking for.

    I’ve only had this for a couple of days so far, so I haven’t had to charge it a second time, yet. The fact that the battery hasn’t died yet with a couple days of near-constant fiddling with it is pretty impressive, though. I was worried about having another device that I would have to constantly keep charged, but I don’t think that’s going to be much of an issue, here.

    Overall, this feels like a very well thought out product. It’s a hybrid that actually manages to deliver on all the features I’d want from a normal watch, and a smartwatch. It’s surprising that there aren’t more people making watches like this.

    This is not a product category that has a lot of well thought out, fully baked products. Smartwatches can be useful and fun but can also be flakey, complicated, amazingly bad at simple things, and visually hideous. Garmin has a pretty nice product in the vívomove HR that rarely leaves my arm with some real strengths but also some all too common (among smartwatches) flaws. I think it’s the best product on the market but I am still constantly annoyed in small ways and bewildered why simple things are not done properly. Before I list a bunch of negatives, please keep in mind many of these negatives are industry wide issues. Garmin may not be pushing innovative approaches in this watch but it’s comparatively pretty great. As such, I’d only compare this to similarly detailed reviews of other smartwatches or best for someone looking at this vs living without a smartwatch.

    Pros:
    -Battery life is awesome. A week in actual use if not more. It’s plenty. It’s at least twice as much as plenty.
    -The hands show the time, all the time. They also move out of the way (minute hand goes to 10minutes and the hour hand goes to 10 hours) which is cool to look at when you utilize the screen.
    -The touchscreen is completely invisible when you’re not showing something. It really looks like a normal watch. It’s tasteful. Not too nerdy. People won’t think you’re wearing a fitbit or a calculator watch.
    -It has weather data. I can’t live without quickly accessing the weather for today and tomorrow on my watch. This is why I have a smartwatch and in and of itself rules out most of them.
    -The screen is sufficient for text messages and showing you the name or number of who is calling. It can also tell your phone to pick up which is a great thing for iphone users who can’t properly answer their own phone by sliding the answer button across the screen due to OS lag.
    -The heartrate meter and the pedometer work fine. I’m not totally into fitness stuff but they don’t get confused by my leg shake while sitting or similar. The meter does not dig into your wrist at all. It’s like a normal watch level of comfort.

    The meh:
    -The screen could be bigger. The second and minute hands move out of the way so the entire lower half of the watch could be a screen. Would give a few more characters of room for text messages which would help a little.
    -The hands move to 10 and 2 regardless of if they interfere with the screen or not. If it’s 10:01, they’ll move to show 10:10 when you interact with it. There’s no need to move the hands in that situation. This might be intentional, the moving hands is kinda a party piece.
    -The interface consists of touch left, touch center, touch right, swipe left, swipe right, and hold. It’s still remarkably repetitive within that design to get through the menus. Something like touch, hold, swipe left, swipe left, touch center, touch center, swipe left 4 more times, touch center is probably a typical interaction for like, asking it to resync. It’s not super bad but it’s not properly optimized.
    -The watch is a little thick and is a little big (44mm). Neither is particularly noticible but put a normal 42mm watch next to it and it will look decent sized. Considering the battery life I think the thickness is pretty impressive really and 44mm is hardly “large” in today’s oversized world but it’s important to point out. I got confused by the different watch choices Garmin offers in this product but as far as I know, they’re all 44mm around with 20mm bands and roughly the same thickness.
    -The screen isn’t bright enough in direct sunlight. The hands however are great in direct sunlight. Few smartwatches have hands. You will know what time it is while somebody with an apple watch tries to shield their screen.
    -The fitness monitor concept seems pretty pervasive in our society but it’s really pretty half baked. You want to know if walking more and using the stairs more is going to burn a couple more calories a day? Yeah, it works. I guess that’s nice. It’s far from a life-altering wellness partner or a substitute for a personally designed exercise program.
    -No replies to text messages or text replies to declining a phone call. I had a pebble and this sorta worked, it was buggy. In concept it’d be nice to have a few canned messages like “ok” or “I’m in a meeting I’ll get back to you in a couple minutes” that you could pick from. I don’t think many watches do this well so I put it here.
    The bad:
    -The face is not lit and the hands/hashes are not glow-in-the-dark. Why? This seems so simple. The “black sport” version I got has a very yellow minute hand and a very yellow 12 and 6 hash markers but both have no glow. The whole point of this watch is the hands, isn’t it? Why make them useless in the dark. You can of course activate the smartwatch (which I set to double click) and it can show the time digitally which will be QUITE BRIGHT when it’s too dark to see the hands.
    -There is no (or does not function well ) automatic LED backlight adjustment for ambient light conditions. It’s too bright or too dark nearly every time you use it.
    -The sleep tracker thing is somewhere between nonsense and inaccurate.
    -The price is nearly twice as much for the metal casing ones with nice bands. The cheap version at least has some yellow paint to help you read the hands (not glow though) and the band has some easy quick-release pins but I am disappointed Garmin wants >$100 more simply for a metal case. The band got replaced by a conventional metal mesh band which I like a lot better. Annoying how poorly packaged the nice watch hardware is.
    The really bad:
    It loses sync 1-2 times a day. Every morning when I wake up I have to spend ~60 seconds going through a specific process. 1) Open the phone app (even if you left it on your phone all night) 2) wait for it to sync 3) select pair now under settings+Bluetooth settings. Only then can I get the high and low temperatures for the day streamed to my wrist. Certainly not going to be 5 seconds after I open my eyes in the morning.

    I like it. I’d recommend it. I just don’t understand why more thought can’t go into the basic operation and layout of these products. Technology wise it all seems pretty great. Clean up the interface. Add glow paint to the hands and a couple hashes. Come up with some way to have it sync without me telling it to on my phone in the morning. Make the screen a little bigger. Stop making me swipe through your menus so much, you have more control points than you’re utilizing.

    The device works pretty well as a business tool. You get notifications of upcoming meetings that show up on your phone. You can see who’s calling you in a meeting politely. You can even sneak reading a text message in a meeting. The hands and invisible screen make it very stealthy and it’s fairly conservative design means you can wear it with most attire (even a suit if you change the band to something nicer). It seems targeted more at the fitness crowd but it’s strengths lie more with work.

    The hands started moving uncontrollably shortly after I purchased the watch and then was not telling the correct time.
