Built-in Sports Apps

vívoactive features built-in sports apps that track your stats — even when away from your phone. Simply tap to select among GPS-enabled running, golfing and cycling apps plus swimming and activity tracking.

Hit the Ground Running

Whether you’re training for a 5K or just for life in general, the running app uses GPS to capture essential running data such as distance and pace. A built-in accelerometer and wrist-based speed and cadence trackers get rid of the need for a separate foot pod when running on an indoor track or treadmill and also when GPS is unavailable. You’ll be able to set up vibration alerts for heart rate¹, pace and run/walk intervals. Other training features include Auto Lap® and Auto Pause®. Automatic sync with Garmin Connect™ Mobile offers you a post-run summary, including calories burned and if you scored any personal records, such as your fastest or longest run to date.

Get In Gear

The GPS-enabled cycling app measures time, distance, speed and calories. Compatible with sensors² such as speed, cadence and heart rate monitors to measure your progress on training rides as well as daily commutes.

Tee Off

Pair with your smartphone³ to download course maps from our golf course database — with more than 38,000 courses world wide — to play favorite and new courses. The golfing app keeps maps up to date and tallies hole number and par. GPS measures layup and dogleg distances, as well as distances to the front, middle and back of the green, to give a boost to usability over all of the hole. Individual stroke play scorecard means that you can see if you’re under or over par. Measure shot distance at the press of a button. Round timer counts up time on the course, even as the built-in accelerometer tracks your steps.

Dive In

Auto Length accelerometer-based technology automatically gauges total and interval distance; laps; calories burned; session average, interval and length pace; and stroke count, including number of strokes per length and interval and session averages. Let the swimming app calculate your efficiency with swolf, which adds the time and the number of strokes it takes to swim a pool length. View your time and interval distance at a glance. Interval Count means that you can seamlessly pause and then resume your workout.

The thin profile cuts through the water, and its 5 ATM water rating means You’ll be able to swim, sweat and shower with it on, worry-free.

Step It Up

vívoactive follows your progress even when you’re not engaged in a specific activity. The activity tracking app tracks your steps to learn your current activity level, then assigns an attainable daily step count goal. As you meet your milestones, the device will adjust your goal for the next day to come. The red move bar appears on the display after 1 hour of state of no activity and builds when you’ve been sitting too long. Just walk for a few minutes to reset the move bar. Set the sleep mode when you go to bed and vívoactive will monitor your rest. It also tracks your calories burned.

Stay Connected

vívoactive gently vibrates to alert you to the entire same notifications you receive on your compatible Bluetooth-enabled device. Receive caller ID and missed call information for incoming calls. Text messages include sender information and message. Email messages come with sender and subject. vívoactive also displays notifications from Facebook®, Twitter® and other social media platforms, as well as other mobile apps, including weather alerts and temperature. Simply touch and swipe the screen to read more, or clear the screen with the press of a button.
