Garmin fit android heart rate monitor

 

I could talk about the other features of Garmin's $130 (£100, AU$159) wireless Bluetooth fitness band -- its smart auto-adjusting daily goals, its motivational tricks, its shower-friendliness, that it even works with heart-rate monitors -- but that battery life steals the show.

The humble fitness band may be marginalized by fancier smartwatches and more elaborate heart-rate and notification-gathering devices down the line, but a good, reliable wrist-worn pedometer is still a rare find. For those who want the best battery life and have it act as a watch too, the Vivofit is one of the best out there. It's water resistant. It's low maintenance. And it's one of the best alternatives to the Nike Fuelband , Withings Pulse O2 , or discontinued Fitbit Force , on the market.

The Vivofit's basically a wrist-worn pedometer. It counts steps, tracks distance traveled, shows estimated calories burned, displays how many steps are left towards your daily goal, and tells the time. It also tracks sleep, and can check continuous heart rate when connected with ANT+ wireless heart rate monitors sold separately, or bundled with a $169 (£139, AU$199) version of the Vivofit.

A comprehensive activity tracker that is always on, reporting all of your activities and calories burned, plus heart rate and even number of floors you’ve climbed.

You're at the gym working out on the elliptical when you notice the person next to you fumbling with their phone. You turn away when suddenly there's a loud thud -- the sound of phone meeting hard floor. As the person next to you dashes to collect their busted, sweat-covered device, you casually glance at your Garmin vivosmart HR on your wrist.
