If you follow me on Instagram, Stories specifically, you saw that I was recently in Kansas City with the Garmin team. It was such a great experience getting to spend time with fellow bloggers, getting to know the Garmin team, and really understanding the benefits of the Garmin Vivomove Luxe watch. There are so many fun and awesome features of the watch and I’m sharing more about them below.
Before I get into the tech side of things, let me just say, this watch is beautiful. It really looks like some of my other fashion watches in my closet and it works perfectly into my classic neutral wardrobe. The battery life is also really long, which I can really appreciate. The ease of switching out the quick release bands is a nice perk. I’m very into wearing the right color/material band based on what I’m wearing and doing and with the slide of the bar, the band pops off. The Vivomove Luxe is on the larger and heavier side, but Garmin does have a very similar watch, Vivomove 3S, which is much lighter and has a smaller face. The 3S is also more affordable.
I talked about most features of the watch in this blog post here, so today I’m going to talk about my favorites (been using my watch for a good month now). Keep in mind, you have to sync your watch up the Garmin Connect app to really utilize all the features. The Smart Notifications are so convenient (something I didn’t realize I needed). I don’t always have my phone on me, so to get notified if someone is calling, if I’m getting a text message, or even a calendar update, is really nice. You can’t text back, but you’re notified of the number or contact. I haven’t jumped on the Gramin Pay yet, but it works essentially like Apple Pay and can be used anywhere Apple Pay is accepted. If you’re a mom, this feature would be such a help in those moments where you literally don’t have any more hands. Hands down my favorite feature is the Body Battery Energy Monitoring. We learned so much about this feature while we were in Kansas City. Once the watch gets to know your body (once you wear your watch consistently), it starts to track your energy levels throughout the day and can even detect if you’re getting sick. It’s hard to tell in these photos, but you can see that my Body Batter Energy is at a 67 and steady. I’ve seen it way lower in the 20’s and declining when I was overtired and running on fumes. While I’m sure you can tell when your body is run down, this is such a nice feature to be able to remind yourself to rest, hydrate, and fuel your body. If you have any questions about the watch, please leave them in the comments, I’m happy to answer them.
