Garmin’s Vivomove is a classic watch with built-in activity tracking


Garmin has released a new fitness tracker that helps to keep a low profile, and won’t turn a lot of heads. The Vivomove is a fitness tracker that looks like a traditional wristwatch, but has some extra goodies to keep you moving and remind you to do so throughout the day.

The Vivomove features two different bars on its face that indicate how much you’ve moved throughout the day, and how many steps you’ve taken. The black move bar on the left of the watch face tracks the steps you’ve taken, while the red bar on the right tracks how much you’ve moved and will remind you to get up and move around more if you’ve been sitting for too long.


Here’s a quick rundown of what it’s capable of:

  • Physical Dimensions: 22mm wide x 12mm thick x 42mm diameter
  • Weight: Sport: 51.0g (1.8oz); Classic: 48.0g (1.7oz); Premium: 67.0g (2.4oz)
  • Battery: Up to 1 year with a replaceable CR2025 coin cell battery
  • Water Rating: 5ATM
  • Running Features: Accelerometer
  • Activity Tracking Features:
    • Step Counter
    • Auto goal (learns your activity level and assigns a daily step goal)
    • Move bar (displays on device after a period of inactivity; walk for a couple of minutes to reset it)
    • Sleep monitoring (monitors total sleep and periods of movement or restful sleep)
  • Vivomove connects with Garmin Connect to analyze data

The Garmin Vivomove comes in three different variations: sport, classic and premium, with the difference being found in the bands as well as the casing for the watch itself. The Sport starts at $150 and features a black or white sport band, with a silver casing.


The Classic will run you $199.99 and comes in two versions: black with a black leather band, or rose gold with a white band. Finally, the Premium will cost $299.99 and features either a stainless-steel casing with a dark brown leather band or gold-tone steel casing with a lighter-brown leather band. Additionally, since the bands are interchangeable, Garmin will make the sport bands available for $30, while the leather bands will set you back $60.
