Garmin Vivomove HR is a hybrid fitness-focused smartwatch that’s designed to track your daily activities, alert you when you receive a notification from your phone with a long battery life that keeps you connected for up to 2 weeks. The Vivomove HR comes in two models; Vivomove Premium and Sport. The difference between these two is the different materials used for the case and straps.

While the Vivomove HR Premium has a case made of stainless steel with 24K gold or 18K rose gold over titanium-based PVD coating and comes with leather straps, Vivomove HR Sport has a case made of fiber-reinforced polymer and comes with silicone straps. Chemically strengthened glass covers the screen of both models, while there’s a small OLED display that shows your stats and notifications.

The Vivomove HR is equipped with a heart rate sensor, altimeter, and accelerometer that enables it to track your steps, floors climbed, calories, heart rate, sleep, stress, menstrual cycle, and VO2 Max.

Beyond that, Vivomove HR will alert you when you receive notifications on your phone and has a long battery life of about 5 days with smartwatch mode and over 2 weeks with watch mode.
