Excellent, but not without its quirks
by peejayemm

My Fitbit died and their customer service was no help at all, so I went looking elsewhere for a replacement. I have an Edge 1000 for my bike, so mostly use this to track dog walks and general exercise.

It is more stingy than the Fitbit in terms of giving me credit especially for converting hills to flights of stairs, but it's consistent and I can't complain about that.

The touch screen is very sensitive so will often be deep into various screens when I wake up from the night, but again not a big deal.

I did replace the band with a metal one that looks better at the office.

Excellent Garmin everyday device

I wear the Vivoactive 3 247. I use it to record my lap swimming. It uploads to my phone as soon as I walk up to my gym locker. I like that I can use it as a regular watch for everyday use too. The watch face I use is large and easy to read. I still use my Garmin 820 for cycling because I can see the screen easier but the Vivoactive will do fine for recording a cycling activity.

Excellent activity monitor
by cgrotz

This is the best activity monitor for the money. There are so many features, it is gps enabled and it supports several activities - bicycling, running, walking, etc. with distance, speedpace heart rate, distance. I primarily use the steps, stairs, heart rate functions, along with a stress measurement function. It also gives a pulse when you need to move, and it pulses for news updates, calendar updates (for meetings, and phone calls text messages. I have a garmin 820 for cycling and a gamin 620 for running, which provide more data, but this is a great device for tracking most activities. I love this device and dont take it off. Battery life is good - I usually get 4 days before charging but is dependent on activity usage which drops to 2-3 days.

Great watch. Colors on the face not as vivid as Id prefer.
by rcwhome

Watch connects to everything. Easy to configure and use. Battery lasts for 3 days at least although I dont use GPS function - Im told that uses more battery. Heart rate is ok - usually within 10-15% of my chest strap which is about as good as wrist monitors get.
