Garmin Vivosport GPS Activity Tracker

Not all activity trackers are created equal and the new Vivosport from Garmin is ten steps ahead—and counting—of the crowd. With all-day (and night) activity tracking, wrist-based heart rate and a built-in GPS that maps your walks, runs and bike rides while tracking your distance and pace, this sleek new wearable gives you everything you need to meet fitness goals head-on while dominating your everyday agenda.


  • The vivosport requires no fancy fitness watch packaging, or the price that typically accompanies them, to map your fitness activities and capture your distance and pace. With the built-in GPS, you’ll get your onscreen pace over distance or heart rate, plus an at-a-glance sketch of where you walked, ran or biked.
  • When you aren’t getting the much-needed details of your more intense daily activity, vivosport will show you your steps taken, floors climbed, sleep, and calories burned, with move alerts to keep you motivated to take more steps.
  • Know thy heart rate at all times with the wrist-based heart rate that requires no chest strap to show you your pulse at any given moment.
  • A 7-day battery life means you’ll only have to charge vivosport just once per week; and if you’re racing in GPS mode at an all-day event, you’ll have 8 hours on the clock without the need to charge.
  • Watch your VO2 max and fitness age improve in time with vivosports’ advanced fitness monitoring tools that keep you informed of the kind of progress that adds years to your life.
  • Transition into a power walk or run without worry if you forget to switch gears on your vivosport screen; the Move IQ feature will automatically detect a change in movement and begin tracking your new activity.
  • Stress happens to the best of us, though your vivosport won’t let it get the best of YOU. After detecting any unusual spike in your heart rate, vivosport will alert you of your elevated stress score and display a timed breathing exercise to bring you back to calm.
  • Swim, shower and rinse the dishes...vivosport is swimproof, with a 5ATM water rating.
  • Enjoy the sleek design in three neutral-to-juicy colors, all with a sunlight readable touchscreen display.
  • Get automatic uploads, music control, smart notifications and LiveTracking all from your handy vivosport.
  • Use the complimentary Garmin Connect Mobile app to compete with friends and loved ones, and see all of your daily and weekly stats in one convenient place.

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes. Vivosport has Move IQ, so even if you forget to switch over to sports mode, it’s able to read patterns in movement and understand that you’re simply on the move, rather than stressing.

It depends on your needs. If you’re looking for distance and pace, plus a map of your run or ride, the Vivosport is a perfect choice, without all of the additional bells and whistles - although you do get many of those with features, too, such as the VO2 max, wrist-based heart rate, music control and more.

No. Check out the new Vivoactive 3 instead. Though keep in mind that you don’t need a separate heart rate sensor with Vivosport.
