New model from Garmin – VIVOSMART HR

Not long ago, Garmin introduced Forerunner 225 with the wrist-based heart rate. We didn’t have to wait long for a new fitness band (activity tracker) with wrist-based heart rate.

On 27th October, Garmin introduced new vivosmart HR. Price: USD 149.99, exclusively available at BEST BUY. 🙁

At first sight:
1) the new vivosmart HR is bigger and heavier:
