Garmin unveils Vivosmart HR+ fitness tracker
Garmin Vivosmart HR+ is now official, adding quite a few new features to the popular Vivosmart HR. Its predecessor was released back in 2015, but the HR+ already makes it look outdated, thanks to its GPS tracking capabilities and automatic activity detection.
Thanks to the built-in GPS, Garmin Vivosmart HR+ can track distance, time and pace of a workout more accurately than its predecessor. This module also allows new running features to be added, such as virtual pacer, personal records, Auto Lap, Auto Pause, and walk/run mode. Garmin Vivosmart HR+ also provides 24/7 heart rate monitoring and can last up to 5 days on a single charge. However, when the GPS is on, its autonomy drops to just 8 hours.
Garmin Vivosmart HR+ is available in Black/Shark Fin Gray, Imperial Purple/Kona Purple, and Midnight Blue/Bolt Blue (all with regular size band). The Black/Shark Fin Gray is also available with an extra-large band. It can be already purchased from Garmin.com for $219.99 USD.
