Something you might know about me is that I love a beautiful watch.  Something you might NOT know about me is I love tech gadgets.  The Garmin vivomove HR combines the best of both worlds!

I’ve tried a smartwatch before but they were either too bulky or too techie looking.  The Garmin Vivomove HR is a beautiful watch with all the functions of a smartwatch built in.  My mother received this one for Christmas and I have to admit I was very impressed and curious.  I was thrilled when Garmin reached out to send me one to try.

I chose the new Silver Stainless Steel design with the embossed Italian leather band.  I love the silver face and that it blends with my everyday jewelry. The mock croc embossed Italian leather band is really beautiful.  I love wearing it with dresser looks like this linen shift dress.  They just released several new colors and styles for the vivomove HR.  I love this rose gold version as well.

The bands are interchangeable making the watch so versatile.  The white silicone band is great with more casual looks like this tunic dress for a casual day or exercising. I can’t wait to choose a few more colors!

The vivomove HR has so many cool features but they aren’t always visible.  Meaning, this smartwatch looks like a watch.  By simply raising your arm the hidden display appears.  You simply swipe right and left to see the data you are looking for.

You can customize all these features for the watch with the Garmin Connect App on your phone.  This app also let’s you see a full day’s activities at a glance. The vivomove HR tracks: Heart Rate, Steps, Floors Climbed, Stress Level, Calories Burned, Weight, Sleep and shows you a snapshot of your averages for the past 7 days.  Quite smart, I’d say!

While monitoring your steps and heart rate to alerting you to incoming calls and texts, it’s as functional as it is beautiful.  One of my favorite alerts is when it tells me to MOVE!  Working at home, I can get so focused on a project for the website that I will spend hours at my computer.  It’s nice to have the nudge to get up and move!

We’ve been Garmin fans for years starting with their golf products to the watch my husband wears every day.  I’m excited to have a stylish smartwatch that doesn’t sacrifice style for function.  It holds a 5 day charge in smartwatch mode as well so it’s low maintenance as well.

I’m excited to be giving away one of these gorgeous and functional watches on my Instagram feed tonight at 7pm! Be sure to look for the post and enter!  I’ll draw a winner from qualified entries once I land in South Africa on Friday, April 26.  Be sure to follow along on Instagram as I won’t be posting here until I return!
