Today’s pick – Garmin vivoactive

#1 Best Seller on Amazon

Garmin Vivoactive

Garmin Vivoactive

I have own Garmin vivoactive for quite some time now. Even if it is not the latest model, I still enjoy it. I’m tempted by a new model with wrist-based heart rate monitor, but I may put over for some time until there are further improvements. I also still like the look of it. Although my girlfriend doesn’t share my opinion.

I use the vivoactive mostly for walking, occasional runs and short workouts. I like the “7-minute workout” (check on google or youtube – absolutely love to start the day with short series of exercises). The 7-minute workout app doesn’t come preloaded on vivoactive, but it is very easy to download from Garmin’s CONNECT IQ.

You will need to connect your device to a computer. Use the Garmin Express (from there: “Mange Apps” >>”Get More Apps” – you’ll be redirected to CONNECT IQ website, where you can choose an app you like).

Samsung Galaxy Gear S R750W on Amazon

The Gear S R750W is Samsung’s 6th attempt at an amazing smartwatch, and just like all its previous iterations – this time is a success. Unlike other Samsung smartwatches, the Gear S allows you to make and receive phone calls and even respond to emails right from your wrist thanks to the integrated SIM slot and 3G modem connectivity.

You will however need a Samsung phone with the Gear Manager app installed to initially setup your email accounts, customize the look and feel and install apps on the Gear S. You will also need the Gear Manager app to setup track your runs, and transfer over music, contacts and photos.
