Garmin Vivoactive 5

Smartwatches have evolved from one of the most exciting new innovations to a pretty standard piece of tech. There might not be one on every wrist, but there’s no denying their popularity. So how does a new device like the Garmin Vivoactive 5 make itself stand out from the growing crowd? Let’s take a look (

The Garmin Vivoactive 5 offers a wide-ranging, precise and highly detailed collection of insights into different aspects of health, and it does so with an easy-to-read 1.2″ AMOLED touchscreen that works under a variety of different lighting situations, plus a fairly impressive 11-day average battery life and a resilient, durable design. The Garmin ConnectT app is compatible with Android and iOS devices to ensure accessibility.

Once you’ve unpacked and charged your device, you can download the app and start customizing. You can adjust the screen brightness, turn notifications on or off, and find the apps and settings best suited to your goals. For example, the Vivoactive 5 is particularly good if you want to track your periods, whether it’s because you’re trying to get pregnant or you’re keeping an eye on menopause. There’s even a function to record period pain or other symptoms at different points in your cycle. If you’re already pregnant, you can use it to monitor the baby’s growth and development while also making sure you’re eating properly, staying hydrated, and exercising enough.

Some people, particularly serious runners, have had problems with the Vivoactive 5’s offering, but as a general use device, it’s pretty good for both amateurs and professionals. Other criticisms have included issues when setting the device up and with getting the charger properly connected. There have also been a few stylistic concerns regarding the watch’s fairly basic band.

Every smartwatch has its own advantages and disadvantages. The Vivoactive 5 has a longer battery life than many, but there are others that last longer. It has a wider range of apps than most watches, but that does mean it’s missing some of the more specialized functions found on other devices. It’s not always easy to set up, but it is pretty simple to use. You need to assess every aspect in relation to your own needs.

For most people, the Vivoactive 5 will be comprehensive enough, durable enough and versatile enough to meet their everyday requirements.
