The Garmin Vivoactive is a smartwatch for the active lifestyle, with built-in GPS apps to track activities from running and cycling to skiing and swimming. It also includes a step counter and a sleek enough design that I typically wear my Vivoactive most days of the week. The watch pairs activity data with the Garmin mobile app (and optionally third-party apps like Strava) to keep a log of distances, favorite routes, and personal records. The interface is very simple (which is necessary given the small screen real estate) and the experience to start tracking an activity is seamless/intuitive. I'm also a big fan of the Vivoactive's golf app, which updates in real time with your distance to the green (I still haven't figured out how to make it improve my score, though). The Vivoactive also offers sleep tracking and Bluetooth-enabled smartphone notifications, but I tend to keep those features disabled for my sanity.
