Top Features






Garmin is a known brand when we talk about wearables. The company has a vast portfolio of smartwatches which are feature rich. The diverse product lineup of Garmin had a new entrant with the launch of Garmin Vivomove Sport hybrid smartwatch. The wearable offers the experience of both smartwatch and analog watch. We used this stylish looking smartwatch for sometime and here’s our complete review:.

Garmin Vivomove Sport is a fashionable and stylish hybrid smartwatch. The lightweight smartwatch weighs only 30 grams and its circular dial makes it comfortable to wear. The smartwatch comes in multiple color options — black, green, beige and brown allowing you to choose the one as per your liking. Our unit was green in color which looks quite chic and elegant. You can also swap the watch straps to make the most of the hybrid smartwatch.

The Garmin Vivomove sport features a circular OLED display. The 0.34-inch display offers 72×154 pixel resolution. The case of the smartwatch is made using fiber-reinforced polymer, whereas the lenses are made using a chemically toughened glass. The watch face of the hybrid smartwatch hides a small OLED display which displays all the stats directly on your wrist. Tapping on the little screen gives you access to all the records and information. The design does not look as premium as the other smartwatches available in the market, but it can be a pick for the people who want the best of both the worlds. The hybrid smartwatch is also water-resistant making it ideal for your workout sessions.

Features and performance
Garmin Vivomove Sport hybrid smartwatch offers multiple user friendly features. The device can keep a track of your complete health and fitness. It can keep track of your heart rate, breathing, sleep, blood oxygen, steps, stress levels, menstrual cycle and more. The wearable also comes with the interesting Garmin Body Battery feature. As the name suggests, the Body Battery feature is designed to monitor your body’s energy throughout the day. If you had a good sleep at night then the Body Battery level will be around 85 to 90 and it will range from 30 to 40 after you had a moderate working day. As mentioned above the wearable can also keep track of your stress levels. During our testing the hybrid smartwatch delivered pretty accurate results. The stress levels increased while we were doing some official tasks and it decreased while we binged watched some light and fun content.

Garmin Vivomove hybrid smartwatch also offers a feature called timed physical activity. You can set the feature for any kind of physical activity such as running, cycling, strength training, yoga and more. The smartwatch will help go through each and every step of the physical activity and all the data is then saved on your app so that you can analyze it later.

The hybrid smartwatch from Gramin can also be used as a companion to your smartphone.

You can receive alerts for incoming and outgoing calls, messages, media playbacks, calendar and weather updates. You can also set pre-programmed replies for messages and can then send them later directly from the smartwatch. The wearable worked seamlessly during our testing. It delivered a smooth performance during all the tasks assigned to it.

You can use the hybrid smartwatch in-sync with the Garmin Connect app which is available on both Android and iOS operating systems. The app interface is quite easy to understand and is also user friendly. You can access the detailed metrics and physical history of all the activities performed. The only thing which we felt was missing from the smartwatch is the support for built-in GPS.

Garmin Vivomove Sport hybrid watch promises to offer 5 days of battery backup on a single charge. However, in our testing the hybrid smartwatch lasted for about three days. The battery backup was just fine on the Garmin Vivomove Sport, however we expected a better battery backup as it is a hybrid smartwatch. The wearable is quite easy to charge; it takes approximately an hour to charge completely with the help of a 10W charger.

Garmin Vivomove Sport comes with a price tag of Rs 18,990. The hybrid smartwatch will be loved by those who don’t want to give up on analogue watches and still want to experience a smartwatch. The hybrid watch does not offer a long battery life but its fitness and health tracking features makes it a winner. Also the data accuracy offered by Garmin acts in its favour.
