The Vivoactive is the perfect fitness watch for you if you live an active lifestyle or if you aspire to. It is a multi-functional fitness companion packed into an 8mm thin watch body. The Vivoactive boasts an impressive set of features, including 3 weeks of battery life, sports tracking for multiple activities and GPS functionality.
A high resolution touchscreen allows for easy operation and for information displayed to be easily read. The vibration alert on this fitness watch solves the problem of being able to stay informed about your notifications when a loud alert sounding off or checking your phone is not appropriate.
What will it monitor?/B>
Throughout the day and night, the Vivoactive will keep a record how much you have moved so that you have an accurate report of how you are doing and where you can improve. It also comes with standalone modes for tracking that only use the sensors on board the fitness watch without the need for a mobile phone.
If you would like to map your run, the Vivoactive contains a GPS, capable of tracking for 10 hours on a full charge. From these sensors on board, you can see your pace, distance and calories burned. The Vivoactive automatically adjusts the daily target based on your recent performance with small increases to push you to reach your fitness goals.
A companion heart rate monitor is included with the Vivoactive GPS watch. This is worn around the chest with the heart rate module across the front and a soft, washable fabric around the back. When worn, the monitor tracks your heartbeat and sends the data to your smart device in real-time.
The heart rate monitor transmits up to three metres away and has a three year battery life. It is recommended that you do not take the heart rate monitor with you whilst swimming.
