- Garmin Vivoactive Heart Rate
Based on its name, the Garmin Vivoactive is perfect for a health-conscious person. The sleek slim design of it is somehow similar to the Fitbit Surge which is one of their flagship smartwatches. The watch somehow has its own downside, it is massive and at the same time bulky and is not good to wear at a formal event like a meeting, going to work, or even on a date. The display comes with the always-on display which we can usually see on most Samsung devices. The purpose of the always-on display is the easiness of the user to read outdoor which lighting exposure is varied. When you’re on a shade or inside your house, the display can look a bit dull and not crispy because it doesn’t come with the AMOLED piece of tech.
