Very nice update from Vivoactive HRM that I had before. Feels like they thought through the menus much better now, very natural sweeps back and forth between the menus. Significantly easier access to eg alarms than in the old one. The function of being able to lock the display from pressure is superb. It used to be able to scroll through the menu when a drop of sweat ran over the display. Now we are eagerly waiting for Spotify support as well, saw that Fenix 5 plus and 645 music got it. Peeked a bit at Fenix 3 and 5 during black friday but did not dare to hit them for fear of getting a rash from the cases with my nickel allergy, sad that Garmin can not clarify the choice of material. This one has a plastic case so no problems at all. Update: Have used it daily for 2 years now and am really happy with everything except the GPS which feels like a pretty crucial thing for a sports watch. Do not know what it is but my GPS tracks are often very jumping back and forth compared to other devices. My wife's regular Vivoactive 3 works much better than mine so maybe just had bad luck. Have tested with only GPS, GPS + Glonass and GPS + Galileo but the result is the same. Otherwise, I have nothing to complain about Spotify works flawlessly, but you can have it in the charger at the same time as you download your music because it really sucks out the battery. Otherwise I am very happy with the battery life, usually manage around 10 days on a charge with 2 running sessions during these days.

My first heart rate watch. Super satisfied with most things. Sits nice on the wrist so you don't think about it sitting there. Charges once a week if I use it for 1-2 runs with music. Synced cannon with wifi to refill songs from Spotify. Can really be recommended and fun when you learn where to fold in pulse to extend the running pass maximally without and hooking.

Enjoyed a month of a total of 6 runs. negative: * Failed to connect it to the broadband at home but had to hand out mobile internet to it to download music. Don't know why ... * During one of the runs, the music hacked some but has not happened again. * Slack in the charging socket so you have to try a bit when you put it on charging. Positively: * Good with features, both for exercise and sleep. * cruel nice o don't have to have your mobile out on the run o still have music in your ears. * The smartwake app that wakes you up when you sleep at its easiest Charges it about once a week. Purchased as demo-ex for 1690: -.

The training part is good. But sync to my andoid phone Pixel 2 does not work. No note on incoming calls. Garmin knows about it but no update with fix will come. Also got big scratch after 3 days. And then I have been very careful.

Have had this for over a month now and are satisfied. Good battery that is not needed is charged every day. I have not tried Garmin pay but would rather have samsung pay or more will come to garmin pay. Me and my partner have the same clock and we usually run the same distance together and start and stop m at the same time, but we still sometimes get big differences in statistics and times. But it is not so dramatic but noteworthy. Nothing I think you should hang up on if you are a regular exerciser. Think music takes a long time to sync, several minutes for only eg 24 songs and my partner experienced problems with calling Spotify playlists to the clock. I use samsung galaxy buds for my watch and now I do not know if it is the clock or the wireless headphones but drop / hack in the sound all the time when I have the clock On the left arm. If I change the clock to the right, it works clockwise. A little shame that the quality is more plastic on the music variant of vivoactive 3. Guaranteed not to be tough, so be careful. Good watch for anyone who doesn't want to spend too much money. Nice to leave the phone at home to track his running that I would have otherwise lugged around. And convenient with music storage if you have wireless headphones. Nothing to do with music But it's convenient. Can recommend.

+ Good GPS measurement and quickly find the satellites, about 5-10 seconds. + Easy + Reliable heart rate measurement (sure, tape is even better) + Fast Bluetooth connection to headphones and good reception. + Spotify +/- Touchscreen, good usually but can lead to interruptions if you sweat a lot, but then you can only lock the screen automatically during training. +/- Absolutely ok, I get about 12 hours only GPS and pulse, about 6 hours with music too. Not recommended for ultramarathons or walkers, suitable for more running. - Not too good navigation, some built-in simple functions like finding back to start (type of berry picking) and saving space, but no map or easy to use route functionality, then you have to go up in price or use third party software via Garmin Connect.

Works properly. Connects directly to Jabra Elite Sport and I never feel the sound cutting. Amazingly easy to use Garmin Pay, just put any cards in the app and shop on. Indispensable on the beach by ice cream purchase. The watch is light and smooth, sleeps with it without any problems and feels immediately natural. Completely ok battery life, 2-3 days if you run some workouts and / or listen to music.

Everything works very well except for the bluetooth connection to my wireless handsets (jaybird X3) bought this particular watch to play music and now after 5 runs notice that the transmitter in the clock is miserable. Only gets sound in one handset and it constantly chops. I've tried to have the clock on both sides without noticing improvement ... Unfortunately, there is a complaint.

Very light and smooth pulse clock. Easy interface, easy to pair with both Spotify (premium), Garmin pay and Garmin Connect. Also ok battery time for a pulse clock. So good to just have a clock and a couple lurking at training, and drop the phone. Garmin delivers with this model, very affordable and hard to beat simply.

Fairly large, barely noticeable weight. Sitting comfortably on the wrist around the clock. Great overview of health and exercise via the Garmin Connect app .. Got it to sync to everything. Gets weight via a Withings wave, and syncs smoothly to both Strava and Endomondo. And got the weekend update so you can download Spotify music on the device and leave the phone at home. Satisfied!
