Ya, would be a good upgrade on forerunner 10, I've a FR 35 and the wife has the vivosport and there is a few extras like stress and REM monitoring in the vivosport.

:-) Was trying to make sure that people really did see "hey,
it really is a bargain, grab it before they notice" got through to some. Those cheap bands can't compare to Garmin..

I've had one almost two years now. I got it specifically because it didn't look like a watch as I wanted to wear watches on the other wrist and for the GPS. It's light, decent battery and very small. I haven't had any issues with accuracy or heart rate. I haven't compared it to my Garmin HRM but haven't seen anything out of the ordinary.

It's handy to have the heart rate warning and walk/run intervals and they work well considering there's no speaker. The lack of buttons isn't an issue as the screen is easy enough to use. Another reason I went with this one is the always on screen, when this came out it was one of the only ones I believe. Handy to see your heart rate, pace etc without having to flick the screen on while running. Loads of ways to customise what's on each screen in typical Garmin fashion.

The app is great, I've been using it for years with cycling. Handy to track distance on shoes and also sync calories with MyFitnessPal and Strava.

Definitely a good price if anyone is interested in getting a fitness tracker.

Hi
Could I ask which would be the better option - this or the Mi Band 5 that was mentioned here a week or two ago?
Tks

I have a huawei band but not a phone.

they make great phones though (class-leading cameras) and it's easy to get the google apps installed that it comes without.

Samsung give away 200 euro wireless earbuds with their phones to boost sales, that doesn't mean that they make crap phones

just 'cos someone suggests an alternative that is more modern and with additional features you don't have to get defensive about your bargain alert

then you proceeded to post incorrect information
