Garmin Vivosmart 5 Specification and User Manual
User Review( votes)
The Garmin Vivosmart 5 is a straightforward and uncomplicated fitness tracker. It keeps track of all the essentials, like your activity, calories burnt, heart rate, steps, and sleep, at all times of the day and night. It falls short of our Editors’ Choice winner in this category, the Fitbit Charge 5, which boasts an improved color touch screen as well as an integrated GPS system.
Garmin Vivosmart 5 Review
On April 20, 2022, the Garmin Vivosmartyr 5 was put on the market. It doesn’t have GPS like the Fitbit Charge 5, so it needs to be connected to your phone via Bluetooth to track your route and pace when you’re outside. The Garmin Connect app works with more than one device, and all of your data, no matter which watch you are wearing, is put together. During our tests, the watch lasted four days and four nights with SpO2 monitoring turned on 24 hours a day and one workout a day being tracked. It has a bigger OLED screen and a real button in place of the capacitive one at the bottom of the face.
The small or medium model we tested, with its band, weighs just 24.5g, while the large model weighs 26.5kg. Both are water resistant, but you shouldn’t swim or do fast water sports with them. The Vivosmart 5 keeps track of how well you sleep and gives you a body battery score. This is a rough estimate of how much energy you have each day to get things done. Using the Garmin Connect app, you can learn more about your sleep data.
Another helpful feature is that it keeps track of your stress all day. The Fitbit Sense and Charge 5 measure stress by looking for changes in your stress’s electrical conductivity. The Vivosmart 5, on the other hand, uses an algorithm called Firstbeat Analytics that is based on your heart rate variability.
The only problem is that it doesn’t take naps into account, so if you take a 40-minute nap in the evening, it can mess up your nightly data. It uses your phone’s GPS to track your speed and route when you’re outside, and it also keeps track of your stress all day long. The watch can only hold 10 different sports profiles, so before you hit the pavement, you’ll need to set up your favorite activities in the Garmin Connect app. The Vivosmart 5 doesn’t have a place to store music, but that’s to be expected from such a small device. But you can use it as a remote for the media player on your phone.
The Vivosmart 5 doesn’t have the same heart rate monitor as newer watches like the Fenix 7 and Forerunner 55, but in our interval training tests, it was still accurate and quick to respond. You can also choose to send your heart rate to a paired device through ANT+ devices like treadmills (look for the ANT+ logo on your machine or check its manual to see if it will work).
Don’t worry if you can’t sync the watch right away. It can store data from seven timed activities. It’s very loud, and if you’re not organized, it works very well. Garmin Connect is one of the best apps of its kind because it shows a lot of information in a clear and easy-to-understand way. Everything in Garmin Connect is free, but you should know that there are a lot fewer workouts led by an instructor here than in other places. If you already have a workout routine that you like, the Vivosmart 5 might be right for you.
