I'm looking at this as an alternative, seems cheaper than everywhere else too with good reviews. The HR monitor isn't essential. Can anyone point to which one would be a better option? Would be mainly used for running and notifications. I'm not sure it alerts you to emails like the vivosmart though.

It depends how 'smart' you want it to be - the forerunner will only alert you to incoming calls and texts, no other apps will have notifications, the vivosmart has better app integration (social media, email etc).

Also, the forerunner wouldn't do any of the activity tracking stuff like pedometer and sleep tracking if you want any of that?
Its rubbish,HR monitor useless, stair count not good, bases much of the calculation for various exercise on heart rate - but as the monitor is way out so are the rest of your readings. to just count how many steps you walk, enable this on your iphone/android through the various apps available.
