Garmin vívoactive HR

If you’re looking for a fitness tracker with GPS, a big screen, water resistance and aren’t worried about size, the Garmin vívoactive HR is for you. While Garmin does have some room to improve with its Move IQ technology and Connect app, we can honestly say that, for the money, this is one of the better fitness trackers on the market.

What we like

- Accurate activity and GPS tracking
- 8-day battery life
- 5 ATM water resistance
- Plenty of notification options available
- Garmin Connect app is full of useful data

What we don't like

- Big, bulky design
- The screen can be hard to read outdoors
- Automatic activity tracking (Move IQ) is lacking
- Garmin Connect app can be confusing at times
