Pros Excellent display, great health and fitness capabilities, ergonomicGreat display, battery lifeGood display, fairly inexpensive, accurate step counterGreat display, good fitness tracking capabilitiesSolid display, ergonomic
Cons Runs on the pricey sideFairly limited smart functions, harder to swap wristbandsNo stair tracker, limited community compare functionsExpensive, harder to useA little pricey for its performance
Bottom Line This wearable is one of our favorite options, delivering top-notch performances across the majority of our tests and easily earning our recommendationIf you love all the fitness challenges and competitions offered by Fitbit but want smart features as well, this product is a great choiceThe Fit is a good option for anyone who wants a basic set of fitness, health, and smart features in a slimmer package than most smartwatchesOne of the newer models from Garmin, the Vivoactive 3 this model has a great display but just can’t quite compete with the top modelsDelivering a wholly unremarkable performance, the Vivosport wasn’t our favorite and failed to distinguish itself
