Smart Vivoactive – brief look (2)

I suppose this model from Garmin really IS Smart – what with all the stuff it can do.

Garmin Vivoactive GPS Smart Watch

Garmin Vivoactive GPS Smart Watch

Will definitely suit the “wannabe” fitness freak, Golfer, Swimmer, Runner and Biker and general Health Nut (heart monitoring and all that).

It also tells you the Time, pairs with your Smart Phone for calls, texts and emails, takes widgets from the ConnectIQ store, has watch face options and has a 3 week battery life in Watch Activity mode (10 hours golf mode).

And it goes without saying this is a GPS enabled watch and it actually looks pretty good – and that’s praise indeed from me.

It’s the slimness that does it as it’s just 8 mm, easy on the wrist and I would suppose if you’re involved in any of the activities described, then this is the only watch you will ever need.   And I thought the Tom Tom Golfer watch was the business, but this is something else!   And I don’t really like “Smart” watches either – but . . . Wow!

In fact there’s so much in it I can’t even start to explain it all, except to say that it appears that Smart and GPS are here – perhaps to stay AND at a price that is actually affordable.  £199 ish from everywhere . . . . . .

I’ll direct you HERE for all the information you need – so get healthy and fit and  . . . . whatever.

Personally I’m going for a lie down!  (mmm wonder what my heart rate’s doin’ . . . .?)

Note – Whether anyone would need all the functions is of course highly debatable, but the miniaturization of the modules within such a small footprint case is pretty impressive.  So whilst I mentioned the Tom Tom Golfer Watch in the text, it is of course hardly comparable.  The Tom Tom is designed purely as a GPS Golfing function watch and as that it is ideal for the Golfer – and not all golfers are into the fitness – and I’m definitely one of them!
