Garmin Vivoactive HR GPS Smart Watch with Wrist Based Heart Rate - X-Large-Black £90.41 (Used Like New from Amazon Warehouse)

Found 20th JanEdited by:"stephenashforth"
Not sure why the X-Large size is so cheap compared to the M-L size. This is no longer the current model but, at this price, is a bit of a bargain.

All ones rated at Very Good have sold. Like New ones are now the only ones ls available at £90.41 so I have edited the deal.

Just to be clear this has the Heart Monitor built into the strap and currently retails at £179 or more at Amazon and other places.

As usual, there is always a slight risk when buying from Amazon Warehouse because their idea of Very Good might not be the same as yours. However, I have generally been happy with the condition of my purchases and, if I haven't, then I have normally been offered a partial refund.

Thanks for that, so if this is too large I could replace the strap with a smaller/regular strap?

A little cheaper from Amazon, so if you find the XL is too big, you can easily buy the regular size and it still be cheaper than buying the regular size in the first place.

Great stuff, thanks and ordered (like new).
Absolute bargain, had mine for over a year, use it for swimming, cycling and running. Excellent watch, battery lasts a week even with regular gps use.
Thanks, after a quick wrist size check I've ordered (like new) great deal.

This is not for runners. It's a "walking to the fridge for a beer and back - how many calories did I lose?" tracker

Nah - this watch is pretty good for runners. Also ok for moderate triathlon use too - ok biking and swimming - just no open water support.

Can you use it to train at a particular heartrate zone you set? Like between 140 & 160bpm. And if you go above or below, gives an audio alarm?

If you want that level of detail I do highly recommend that DC rainmaker review.

The review there provides detailed breakdown on feature availability and DCR is great at responding to questions in comments. But overall the DVR opinion was "Overall, for the vast majority of runners, the Vivoactive HR is a solid running watch." I personally agree with that and i'd hope that runners here wouldn't be put off this deal just because of some missing dedicated hr zone training feature. I suspect runners who know about hr zone training will know what features to look out for in their Garmins.

Have fun out there

because of some missing dedicated hr zone training feature


To answer my question you could just have said "No it does not"

Not really sold on these built-in hrm's - lots of reviews show they are not accurate in comparison to chest straps. So I don't really know how this could be recommended to the "vast majority of runners" or people training for triathlons.

Cheers OP
I train with a 920xt and a chest strap... And I've previously owned a 310, a 301 and some polar watches. I've yet to own an optical HRM, but I do quite fancy getting rid of the chest strap one day

The majority of runners i know don't do hr zone training - when they go for a run, they do like knowing how far they went and how long it took - and having an approximate hr reading on top of that is a nice extra I've got lots of time and respect for them - and I'm often jealous of them running without too many metrics and targets - they're still athletes even if they don't know their CTL from their TSS.

For them, I reckon this watch is a very good candidate I can't think of much better around this £88 price mark
Can you use this with Strava?
Its a brilliant price and I am very tempted, but its just not quite the watch I want. I’d like multisport, but as running is the majority of my activity I really want more running metrics than this provides. If it looked better I would probably have bought anyway
great watch. Had it for a while. very tempted only because i smashed the screen on mine, and garmin want 120 to replace.

Yes, the gps is superb for cycling, had the first generation no HR and then this one , far more accurate than a mobile with strava and no battery drain, can use this for 7 hours on gps,
sync to garmin connect and having linked that to strava once and job done
I've got this watch and use it for both running and cycling. buy a tempered glass protector for the screen from ebay 2 for about a £5.
BARGAIN.

So "Mr expert" you've got one of these then?

Brilliant, will look into it more. Well within my budget so seems a no brainer

This has built in gps, depends what you require from the device but for me I didn't want to carry my phone around. I had one of these and loved it but ended up getting a fenix 5x for a steal so traded in.
How's the smart features on this? I got a garmin but smart features are useless

Smart features will just be basic text messages (read but not respond) and notifications. I always see smart features as a bonus rather than a requirement with a Garmin

The items rated as Very Good have sold out but there is still some Like New for £90.41 so I have edited the deal title accordingly.
You can purchase this from CEX for £80 grade B and they come with a 24 month warranty. Just saying

Thanks for providing the alternative but I know which I would choose between a grade B from CEX at £80 or a Like New from Amazon at £90.

CEX charge £110 for a grade A which might be comparable in condition.

A couple of Very Good ones have resurfaced at £87.59 this afternoon.

That's a shame. When did you order it?

In the meantime, I have expired the deal.
20th evening. I guess they fullfilled a number of orders and cancelled the rest. I thought the Warehouse deals were presented individually, per item. Probably not.
