A perfect Mother’s Day Gift – The Garmin Vivomove HR Smartwatch

I hope you all are having a wonderful week! If you caught my stories earlier you know that I received the vivomove HR smartwatch from Garmin! They were also so gracious to send my kiddos the vivofit Jr. watches as well and my girls are honestly so obsessed! Garmin is running a huge sale right now where you can get $50 off vivomove HR through May 11th! You still have time to grab this for Mother’s Day so I want to chat with you a bit about the features and benefits of this watch.

One major perk of the vivomove HR watch is how sleek it is. Unlike other smart watches on the market, this one has a beautiful design with the fashionista in mind. This is so versatile and will literally go with every outfit. Another nice thing about this watch is that the digital portion only flashes when you move your wrist towards your face, or swipe through. If you just glanced at this watch you would never guess that it is actually a smartwatch packed full with features!

Showing here that you can read your texts on your watch!
Here it is showing my steps – to see this I flip the watch towards me and swipe! The hands will move out of the way any time the digitals are being used so you can always see the bottom portion. Once you are finished it will scroll back to the correct time.
Here you can see the face of the watch without the digitals showing! Such a nice classic looking watch, and very comfortable on the wrist!

Here are some of the features of my watch:

  • Notifications straight to the watch that vibrate (phone calls, text messages, items on your calendar etc).
  • Of course you can track your daily steps and all other health things! 24/7 heart rate² monitoring with elevate wrist heart rate technology
  • Battery life: up to 5 days in smart mode; up to 2 additional weeks in watch mode (hands tell time only)
  • Again, the sleek and classic design!
  • This watch starts at an affordable entry level price for a smartwatch at $199 and up.

Garmin was so kind to send these watches to my girls, and let me tell you, these have been GAME CHANGERS in my household. Where do I even begin?! For starters, the bands have princesses on them so its a win there. They are programed to an app I have on my phone and I made a profile for each kid. MY FAVORITE PART EVER – I can set chores for them, and little alarms to remind them to complete the tasks. For instance, Brecklyn’s chore list (my 4 year old) is to brush her teeth every A.M. and P.M. – make her bed, get dressed without mama asking, brush her hair, get her jammies on at night without mama asking, and also be in bed by 8. She is so excited to make sure and do these because if she does them I can check them “complete” and it gives her coins. I’ve set it up where after 30 coins earned she gets a prize. These watches also customize with their names, and track their sleep cycles! I am so amazed! I highly recommend these for kiddos!

If you are needing a last minute Mother’s Day gift or wanting to treat yourself, don’t miss out on the sale! I say treat yourself, you won’t regret it!
