Garmin vívoactive GPS Smartwatch
Garmin vívoactive is the GPS smartwatch for the active lifestyle.
This isn't so much designed for racing a triathlon (no multi-sport mode, and the corners on it are likely to get caught on something) but for the triathlete's life. The ultra-thin profile (8 mm) is comfortable and stylish to wear all day and the watch is designed transition from office, to quick workout, to golf course.
It's an activity tracker that tracks how long you've been inactive and reminds you when to move. When moving, it counts your steps and tracks your progress toward your daily goal. At night, it tracks how well you sleep.
It's a swim watch with an accelerometer that detects total and interval distance, laps, pace, and stroke count. The included swim app calculates your efficiency with swolf and let's you view your time and interval distance at a glance.
It's a simple bike computer ideal for your commute. Keep your high powered bike computer for when you need power data, but this watch that you're going to wear to the office anyway has a cycling app that measures time, distance, speed, and calories. And it can be paired with your speed/cadence sensor**.
It's an easy-to-use indoor/outdoor run watch. With GPS, it captures data such as distance and pace. The built-in accelerometer measures speed and cadence when you are indoors. You can even set up vibration alerts for heart rate*, pace and run/walk intervals, and it has Auto Lap® and Auto Pause®.
If golf is your thing, pair it with your smartphone*** to download course maps to the vivoactive. The included golf app has features such as shot distance, yardage to front, middle, and back of green, yardage to layups/doglegs, and an individual scorecard to see if you are under or over par. And, of course, it tracks your steps.
All this data is uploaded to Garming Conenct with automatic wireless syncing. Then you can analyze to your heart's content.
With the Conect IQ store can customize your watch face, add data fields, and get new apps and widgets as they are developed.
