    "This device is good, but, not great. There are issues using it in the cold weather. The interface can be a bit clunky."

    "The Vivosmart is the best of the Garmin line of trackers! It not only has the basic functions of step counting and calories burnt, it also has GPS functionality. This allows the tracker to see how far and how fast you have gone, great for running or hiking. It also has a vibrating alarm to remind me to get up and be active, which I love because I sometimes lose track of time while working on the computer. "

    "Not sure why these cost so much, as it does as much as any other fitness tracker out there. It's nice, the look is nice, but I honestly didn't think it was worth the extra money it costs for this one over a Fitbit."

    "A solid entry in the Garmin line up of fitness tracker watches. It still has lots of features in comparison to other brands. However in comparison to the Garmin watches it is an older model. Newer better features are on the latest releases of Garmin fitness trackers. "

    "This is definitely the best Garmin fitness tracker on the market right now. It has a lot of features and it is surprisingly accurate! It has a really long battery life, which is convenient...and it tells me a lot of interesting information. I don't know why I need this information, but it's fascinating. "

    "It's okay for a budget fitness watch. There's no frills here with the watch. It does the basics and does them well for the most part. It does take a minute for the GPS to find you, but that's the only real flaw."

    "During run will vibrate every few seconds, indicating "Time", very annoying, haven't been able to get that issue fixed. For running, free phone apps are better. Purchased for heart rate monitor but it will not stay on the monitor screen, to read heart rate I need to unlock then scroll to get heart rate, which is a pain to do when running, nearly impossible now with the "Time" warning which needs to be deleted first to scroll. It can be hard to read and scroll, especially during exercise For the money there are better products. Was hoping to get an offer to return, but am not able to. Wife has a different brand, same brand as her phone not an Apple, and it is far better than the Garmin. Wish I had purchased what she has. "
