Garmin Vivoactive HR GPS Smartwatch, Black

Done quite a bit of research and believe this is the best fitness tracker (AIO) around this price range.

On JL website it doesn't state the size so assume it is regular. This watch has been slightly cheaper previously but has gone up in price recently.

I have bought this watch for the same price through Very due to a 10% discount offer (KPAJ4 may be account specific) and used the interest free option to soften the blow.

Nice extension

185 amazon. On the fence between this and the tomtom spark 3

There are no notifications on the spark which was a deal breaker for me but you can find it for similar price and great if you want music on the watch. I personally use the Garmin With either my phone for music on the bike or a small MP3 player on a run. I needed notifications but your mileage may vary. The TomTom has worse battery life but that's not a problem for most people.

amazon must of price dropped as i bought XL which was £199. i know this as have been checking frequently over the last month

Was 160 at decathlon. Not sure if still is.

I got this last year, nice bit of kit, but Garmin could have made it look a bit classier, as it is, it feels pretty cheap. Mine is only about 8 months old and looks pretty rough, lots of scratches on the plastic surround, and the strap started to wear after a few months.

Why is the warranty only 1 year on this?

Considering this watch as an upgrade to my Forerunner 10. It's back up to £199 on the John Lewis site now but I know they have good customer service so wondering if it's worth getting now or if I should wait and see if it drops in price again.

love mine and the battery life is great especially as i use the GPS for both running and cycling. i don't think the HRM is that accurate but does give you an idea. would i pay £200 for the watch yes but knowing that it does come down and i've seen it before around £160 i would wait. just looked on wiggle and for me it is coming in at £182.60

I did see it on wiggle but didn't seem to be available to buy and was the XL size.
I'm dithering between this, Garmin Forerunner 235 and Apple Watch. Tough decision!
Thanks for your help.
