Love it. Setup is simple enough and the watch has some really nice features. Works even better than expected and will not hesitate to buy again.

Good product, but don't be fooled it is not waterproof.
I had it in a swimming pool and it died afterward. For reference just go and read the thousands of forum posts about the apparent waterproofing.

Very happy with the product

bought this fitness tracker for my hubby. he's extremely happy with it so far. much bett than his fitbit. I would recommend this brand

Great product and features!

Nice product BUT there is a defect on the glass screen which if it appears on the watch you buy, Takealot will refuse to exchange it for another one. The spot on the glass becomes visable after you swipe the screen with your finger. (Remember this is touch screen watch). If the screen is clean you don't see the mark but the minute you use the watch and navigate through the various setting the mark appears. Takealot now refuses to swap it out for another one. I would rather buy this watch from a reputable dealer who will honour any warranty defects on the watch.

Agree wholeheartedly with Mongezi - such a brilliant watch. U need to learn to push the watch above your wrist to get an accurate HR reading when training. This then gives you an accurate reading ( and make sure it doesn't slip up and down your wrist, must fit snugly). It's truly a winner!

Great battery life.
A bit chunky for my wrist but I don't mind.
Exactly what it says on the pack. Tracks a world of activities and probably all the
exercise watch you'll ever need. Pity you need a separate device to track distance for indoor cycling for instance.

Bought it as a gift for my wife who is short distance runner and she is most impressed with it. Device is fairly simple to navigate through and the Garmin Connect software is easy to sync to. She had a hassle syncing with her personal phone, but I believe it is a known problem with that brand of cell phone. For offline monitoring of her sessions, she uses a tablet which connected effortlessly and works beautifully together.

Great Product but no the most user friendly

I upgraded from a FITBIT to the GARMIN as I wanted a waterproof fitness tracker. Its all and more - I'm getting used to the new features and workings but am loving it.

I'm struggling to set/fix the date. I'm not sure whether the problem is with me or what.

For now I’m loving it and it’s 101% of what I wanted. It’s very lite than other brands.

Awesome well and does everything they say it does!

This fitness watch is a bit chunky, but for everything it does, I'll gladly wear it. I love all the features, the app, and its measurements are very accurate. It is super comfortable to do push-ups and weight training with, because of the flexible band. Very very happy so far.

Love it. Would tweek the syncing a little perhaps hence the 4. For the rest, very happy.

Great battery life. Wrist HRM reliability not 100% - can vary slightly but gives the correct general idea.

Brilliant watch. I've used it for a few of my runs, it's easy to setup. You basically need to install the Garmin Connect app and that's all you need, very good heart rate monitor too. Good battery life, I'd recommend it to all runners.

great value but.

For activities it's working 100%.
For bluetooth and sync to phone it fails dismally.

Great product as an activity tracker with good battery life, clear rectangular screen, vibrating alarm, excellent GPS tracking and simple smartphone notifications. The HR monitor has the known limitation of most LED heart rate monitors i.e. accurate at low heart beat rates, but approximately 15-20 beats lower than my chest strap when over 150 bpm during intense work-outs. Still good enough to register an 80% effort HR Discovery work-out.

If however, you have a Huawei Andriod smartphone, be prepared for a very frustrating Bluetooth pairing experience. The Bluetooth software really lets down what is otherwise a great device. It took a lot of googling and struggling to find an ‘unofficial’ workaround on the Garmin support forums to get my Vivoactive HR to pair with my Huawei smartphone. In addition to having to follow a complex set of phone and smartwatch rebooting sequences, the only way to maintain a stable Bluetooth link is to disable location services on your Huawei smartphone. If you need to use maps/navigation on your phone the smartwatch Bluetooth link will stop working while location services are active - once you disable location services the Bluetooth link is re-established.

If you email Garmin support they will confirm this is an official 'known issue' with all Huawei as well as some Samsung, Lenovo and other Android phones/models - see quite below verbatim from Garmin support:
***Garmin is aware of an issue with Huawei model phones that will not pair with Connect Mobile. We are investigating this issue and hope to have a solution soon.

This problem has been known and unresolved for over 2 months! I’m still deciding if I will be returning the device or living with the workaround/only using a manual sync with cable. Without a Bluetooth link it is not possible to set-up the phone. In addition without Bluetooth all smart notifications don’t work i.e. calendar sync, music controls, message alerts or phone controls. If you are a technical person you can search for workarounds on the support forums, which I found more useful than the “official support� -

PS: This is the procedure from the support forums that “worked� for me on my Huawei P9:
- Stop localization services on the phone
- Restart your phone
- Switch Bluetooth off on Watch
- After phone restarted stop (wait 5 sec.) and start Bluetooth
- start Bluetooth Watch
- waiting connection for your phone

After this procedure (!!don't start localization service!!)

more than satisfied.

your price was more than competitive and delivery was efficient

A happy & Proud 5 Star from me as the owner of this watch since last week Thursday, the 30th of March 2017.
I have done my research quite aggressively before buying this watch and had narrowed my preferences to this watch and the FITBIT Surge and only on the battery I opted for Garmin Vivo Active HR's promised 13 hurs on GPS.
Battery life was and still is the most important factor for me because I do ultra runs and Comrades though I may not spent 13 hours on the road (hehehe lucky me, thanks to my good training that affords me to maintain a fast pace) but GPS time remains very crucial.

So the test I did since last week Friday fully charged overnight into Saturday Morning.
I used watch 24 hours each day until this morning, the 06th April 2017 and only got to charge the watch this morning after my 14kms run I did with my team.
Sunday I ran 48kms in 03:37 minutes of GPS tracking, rested Monday & Tuesday did 8kms of GPS time, Wednesday did 11kms of GPS time and this as mentioned, 14kms of GPS and when I started my training this morning the battery was @ 12% and it still carried me through the training and that deserves a Big High 5 from me.

The watch is also fully loaded with Great features which I really appreciate, very easy to use, very light weight and very easy to customize.
The menu is logically simple, apps and settings are just in the right place, you don't need to read a How To manual to get going.
The two buttons plus touch screen does it all very simple, if you won a smart phone, this watch is even easier than the smart phone.

So for me, this has been a very worthwhile purchase based on the experience I have had so far... I would have hated having to charge a watch every 2 days.

I also like the effortless auto-syncing of the watch to the app on my phone and automatic sending of my workouts to Vitality, this really allows me the time to just carry on with my life without an extra burden of making things to happen.

Once set-up correctly, this watch is like something that doesn't exist in your life as it takes nothing from you.

Genuinly good sportswatch

Love it, everything I wanted on my wrist!!!

Another great product from Garmin.
HR is accurate,once you callibrate the watch with your 20min walk steps are spot on.
Bought this watch for my wife. Its not as big as we thought.
Works great for mountain bikking and link Garmin connect to your vitality for extra rewards.

This is a great tool for fitness and sports. I also never miss an email or whatsapp messenger with the notifications that pop up on the screen. Love the widgets and multiple clock faces available.

I bought one for my wife in Feb 17 and 10 months later it leaked water and stopped working. i asked for a refund buy have been told that i have to have a replacement, this after the other one that i bought for myself lasted only 8 months before the same problem happend to it. would not recommend to anyone.

We returned the Vivofit after 13 months. Global Factory fault. Screen dissapeard intermittenly Garmin REFUNDED full amount via other Supplier. Garmin products are generally very good. Vivofit unfortunately not!
Haven't used this new much but it seems to be very much better and working excellent thus far.

Amazing product. I can't find any fault. Connects well with phone for message and phone notifications. Garmin Connect app is great. Fully waterproof. And very accurate. I use it for hiking, swimming, mtb, running and golf.

Got a brand new watch


Wonderful product, works like a charm.

Great health gadget investment!
I am really impressed with this watch. It works perfectly if you want to meet your Vitality points, such as the 300 points for a 5km distance. I also like the web portal that is updated seamlessly after syncing. The battery life lasted me longer than 8 days before I had to recharge. Only snag is that the watch screen could have been bigger by a few mm’s.
Altogether, very worthwhile for the reduced price.

Bought mine 15-Nov-2016 and its been good to me. On the 22-Nov-2017, I decided to swim with in the pool, for the very first time and that was the end of its life. :(

Great watch. Awesome features and really good battery life.

great product..

Wow, what an improvement on the Fitbit.
It's been 7 days now and battery is only at 33%
Get the clock face you want/need
Much more accurate than the Fitbit AND WATERPROOF
Just loving it.

its very basic and fits exactly what I need. love my watch, comfy to train with, that what I bought this watch for. if you looking for a fancy watch to sync with your phone apps and photos and social media this is not for you, however if you want to focus on your fitness and training this watch is a 150% for you.

All in all I think it is a good buy. It seems to be really accurate and it is super fun to know how your heart rate levels are. The app is also fantastic. Having the vivoactive has really motivated me in a way to get fit and being healthy. It is well worth the price. I don't think you will be disappointed when you buy it.

Really satisfied with my Vivoactive HR. Use it for a variety of activities with very little effort.

Very happy with product. Excellent battery life. Accurate HR , steps. Ideal for Discovery Vitality points. Links up well with Garmin app and Discovery app.

My wife and I each bought one. Works wonderful and we are very happy with them, BUT! We bought them in June 2017, January 2018 my wife's just froze, we sent it in for repairs and it was replaced within a week. 2 Weeks later mine just died after a swim. Sent it in for repairs and was replaced after almost 3 weeks! 2 out of 2 lasted about 7-8 months! Hope the replacements lasts longer.

The watch broke after 4 months usage. screen went black. I follpwednthensteps in the manual to reset it but no joy. I have used it to help me with my fitness but it seems to be inable to last. It's a shame.


Love the product.

Fast delivery.

Very happy, works well with all my apps. Only downside is no open water swim recording.
Battery life is good for 4 days running all the bells and whistles.

Ive had nothing but hassles with this product. Can't connect via bluetooth to my device. Watch face keeps freezing. Doesn't log all my activities. Have not been happy with it.

The reason I purchased the VivoactiveHR was for the "bandless" heart rate monitor. Sadly, it does not work! I row quite vigourously and even following the manual's suggestions for erratic heart rate readings, it gives nonsense readings. At high rates and fast times, rather than reflect an increased heart rate, it goes down and sticks at about 34 bpm! If only that was real! Strangely, when not exercising, the readings appear quite normal. So if you are a rowing enthusiast and want a heart rate reading, don't waste your money on this product.


Love the product. Works great

Great product! Intuitive interface both on the watch and the app. Loads of functionality and options at a great price. You would not regret buying this watch.

Bought this as a gift. He absolutely loves it.
