For the fitness fanatic, the Garmin Vivoactive is not just one of the best sports watches, but the best smartwatches out there. For the first time, Garmin has blended an incredible set of fitness features with top notch notifications, to create the first truly every day sports wearable. However, the dated design and questionable screen tech call into doubt whether anyone would want to wear the device every day, and that's a crying shame.

The Garmin Vivoactive is one of the few smartwatches of real substance. It's not banking on an evolving future of a platform it has no control over. It has to justify its existence right here, right now. And you know what: it does. If you're into running or even looking to get into it, this is a terrific smartwatch. The same goes for cyclists, swimmers and even keen weekend walkers. It shows up the paper-thin nature of this whole fitness tracker revolution, where the sensors themselves aren't all that much more clever than Poundland pedometers.

The ultraslim design and laundry list of features can't overcome the buggy software. Once Garmin fixes these problems, the Vivoactive could be a good product, but until then, there are better options available.

The VivoActive is so much more than a cycling computer, though it does a great job at that too. It’s not the smartest watch out there, but it’s a fine example of a sport-focused design. If you live an active lifestyle, then the features offered are likely to prove useful and informative.
