Hi Guys, any news about new Vivosmart? I have V4 and it’s just about to retire. Battery is very weak, display with dead lines etc. Surprisingly still works, but I need a new one!
A new "Vivochic" (or "Vivoring" as suggested by Aslam) would be nice.
All new recent metrics (HRV, SPO2, Respiration, Sleep score) + Vibrating alarm + NFC payments.
Without a screen…
A Vivosmart 5 with sleep tracking by Firstbeat will be great. The Fenix and Forerunner lines are not comfortable to sleep with. A Vivosmart ring with Firstbeat sleep will also be great.
Garmin seems to have abandoned the dedicated smartbands in favor of more complex smartwatches, which is a shame. Many of us want a slim form factor tracker. Both the vivosport and vivosmart 4 are hitting…
Vivosmart 4 is Great as ist is. The only thing i Would like to See on Vivosmart 5 is a changeable Band and a „tougher“ construction. No Need for standalone gps, it only drains battery. Connected gps is Great!!!
My battery blows up 3 times, the Band is Broken one time and i lost the Metal Ring 2 times.
Garmin Changed it all During warranty.
So, Best fitnesstracker in my opinion!!!
I bought my first smart band 5 years ago, and I'll never switch back to a smartwatch.
I bought my first road bike and a Garmin Edge 830 a few months ago, and I'm looking for a smart band that supports ANT+ and can broadcast my HR and SpO2.
A Vivosmart 5 with a changeable band, better display, advanced software features (body battery, sleep score, etc), and NFC would be mine at day 0!
Note:: I know there are a lot of Garmin smartwatches w/ the features I listed, but they're too big and not comfortable to sleep with or to play sports.
I agree, something that looks like a fashion wristband without a screen but still with all the metrics would be much appreciated. There is nothing on the market that meets this criteria. If Oura ring can do it as a ring, I'm sure it would be possible as unobtrusive wristband.
I'd even sacrifice battery size, GPS and NFC payments, leaving just vibrating notifications if it doesn't look out of the place when wearing formal or smart casual clothing. Metal, sapphire glass or ceramic body, possibly even with choice of precious metals, and interchangeable straps would be great. Generally just something for every watch enthusiast to wear on the same or other hand as the classic watch, but without it feeling and looking cheap and plastic.
That is the answer from Garmin to the question about a new device - "We can not comment on any unreleased devices. Some of our models mark the end of a device line and will not be continued, but we do not have formal announcements for when this happens. I do understand that this may cause frustration and I apologize for this"
