Taking Advantage of the Built-In Sports Apps for vívoactive


Finding balance while living an active lifestyle can be difficult, but vívoactive is here to help.

With vívoactive, you can seamlessly switch between activity tracking, running, cycling, golfing and swimming.

Watch the video above or read below to learn more.

Vivoactive Running

Running - For any level of training, the running app uses GPS to capture essential running data such as distance and pace. A built-in accelerometer, wrist-based speed and cadence trackers eliminate the need for a separate foot pod when running on an indoor track or treadmill and also when GPS is unavailable. Make sure you automatically sync with Garmin Connect Mobile for a post-run summary, including calories burned and any personal records you have. 

Vivoactive Cycling

Cycling – The GPS-enabled cycling app can measure time, distance, speed and calories. If you want to go a step further, vívoactive is compatible with sensors and can display additional data such as speed, cadence and heart rate. 

Vivoactive Swimming

Swimming - If you enjoy training in the water, check out the swimming app on vívoactive. The auto length accelerometer-based technology automatically gauges total and interval distance; laps; calories burned; session average, interval and length pace and stroke count. This includes number of strokes per length and interval and session averages. 

If you are interested in learning how efficient you are, vívoactive can help. The swimming app calculates your efficiency with swolf, which adds the time and number of strokes it takes to swim a pool length.

Vivoactive Golf

Golf – Vívoactive also offers a golfing app that will help your game by measuring layup and dogleg distances, as well as distances to the front, middle and back of the green. With a quick glance, you can see if you are under or over par with the individual stroke play scorecard. Make sure you download course maps from our golf course database which has more than 38,000 courses worldwide.

Activity Tracking – Vívoactive follows your progress even when you’re not engaged in a specific activity. The activity tracking app tracks your steps to learn your current activity level, then assigns an attainable daily step count goal. As you meet your milestones, the device will adjust your goal for the next day.

All of the vívoactive features and built-in apps serve as a way to track every aspect of an active lifestyle. Tag Garmin Fitness social media and let us know which activity you are most excited to track with #vívoactive:
