vívoactive® HR

All Heart, All the Time

With Elevate™ wrist heart rate technology³, you can ditch the chest strap and measure heart rate from the wrist for all your sports except swimming, where optical heart rate isn’t available. Using heart rate data, vívoactive HR provides calories burned information and quantifies the intensity of your fitness activities, providing better credit for your efforts.

Keeps Up With All Your Active Moments

vívoactive HR’s GPS-enabled built-in sports apps track your stats and continues to track activity³ throughout your day by counting steps and floors climbed as well as monitoring sleep and calculating intensity minutes, no phone connection required. You won’t have to worry about this watch keeping up with you.
