Garmin Vivoactive 5 review


The Garmin Vivoactive 5 arrives as the successor to the Vivoactive 4, which launched back in 2019. Garmin is updating its first smartwatch-style sports watch most notably with an AMOLED screen. There are new smarts too with a sleep coach telling you...

Strong GPS and heart rate accuracy Useful Body Battery daily insights Vibrant AMOLED screen Decent smartwatch features

Slightly thick bezel around screen Lacks useful Training Readiness feature

Advanced health stats like sleep and stress coaching 30-plus sports apps Upgraded AMOLED display

Inconsistent sleep data Buttons are stiff No barometric altimeter

Despite the saturated market, it makes sense to upgrade your Garmin this time. The Vivoactive 5 costs less than the Vivoactive 4 and Venu 3, and there's more to love than the model before it, including advanced sports features and an upgraded AMOLED...
