Refurbished is a great value!
By J. Thompson
I've been wearing this for a week so far. It arrived as promised the next Day (I paid the extra 3.99 for next day shipping so I could have it before the weekend). I wasn't sure if I would like it because of the size, but it's actually more comfortable than my Fitbit Charge HR that I've been wearing on the other wrist for over a year now. Took forever to get used to that one. I've been wearing them both for comparison, as this is my first experience with Garmin wearables. I agree with other reviewers that the Fitbit app is easier to use, but the Garmin Connect app gives you a lot of really useful information and the plethora of apps, widgets & watch faces available for free download make it fun & customizable. My favorite is the skiing activity tracker. It makes a map of all your runs that you can look at on your phone or computer, and automatically pauses whenever you stop or get on the lift. It works pretty well; only one time in 3 days of skiing did it miss a lift ride. I also love that it's waterproof, although I haven't showered in it or doused it yet. I'm perfectly happy with the factory refurbished item, and am buying a 2nd one for my husband today. The cost saving is fantastic, and it still has a 1-year warranty from Garmin. It arrived with a 50% charge and I charged it fully that day, then again a few days later when it looked to be getting low, although it probably didn't need it yet. It looks low now, but when I checked the percentage in settings, it's still at 21%, so will give it another day or 2 & see what happens when it actually dies. It's looking like about 5-6 days on a charge, which I'm happy with, especially with the amount of gps use and new-toy-playing-around I've been doing. All in all, the refurbished tracker is a great value for all the functionality you get. It looks brand new, just didn't come with all the fancy packaging.

Much better than Fidbit Charge 2
I had a Fidbit Charge 2 for close to a year. I liked a lot of the features, but having it stop tracking whenever I worked out hard enough to sweat was extremely annoying. I tried the Garmin Vivosmart briefly, but returned it because of problems connecting to the GPS. I 've had the Vivoactive HR (I bought refurbished) for a couple months now and am quite happy with it. Aside from being waterproof, which means it keeps working even when you sweat, I find the HR monitor much more accurate than the Fidbit Charge 2. It is bulkier, but added surface contact makes it more accurate as there is less interference from light. I have switched my primary goal from steps to intensity minutes. There have been some glitches after updates on the intensity minutes but, over-all, it has been an extremely useful feature. When there has been a glitch to the intensity minute recording feature, there are user-defined heart rate zones to track intensity minutes with a little more math involved. There are all kinds of apps to customize your watch. If your primary goal is to get your heart rate into aerobic and peak zones and track it, then this may be the smart watch for you.

Great garmin watch
By John Hoagland
Garmin hit a home run on this watch.
I've had several smart watches/fitness watches, the pebble, LG G watch round, Garmin viviosmart HR, GPS running watch.
Using the "face it's Garmin app you can set a custom screen. You can get phone alerts, monitor daily steps, flights, HR as well as turn on GPS for tracking runs.
Battery life is amazing especially when compared to general smart watches.
Great companion to run with phone to control music or run without with dedicated GPS.
