A new entry in the smart watch category, the Garmin Vivoactive has built-in sports apps, including GPS enabled golfing, running, biking, and swimming tracking. It pairs with your smartphone to notify you of incoming calls, texts, emails as well as notifications from social media and other mobile apps. You can also customize the eatch faces.
They’ve got plenty of competition from things like the Pebble and Apple Watch, so I wonder how this will ever catch on. The main saving grace, I think is that it’s sport focused and that it keeps track of things even when not paired with a phone.
I like the idea of the thing.
