Compared to its predecessor, this new wearable offers GPS tracking capabilities and automatic activity detection, as well as a few additional running features.

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 Its predecessor was released back in 2015, but the HR+ already makes it look outdated, thanks to its GPS tracking capabilities and automatic activity detection.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.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
