These are fitness trackers and the idea in inventing them is to ensure that one keeps fit. They come in different sizes, a wide range of colors and they do not have detachable modules. They also have miniature monitors which display a wide range of information e.g. time of day plus the date, calories burned, distance traveled, current heart rate, floors climbed (Fitbit Flex). Garmin Vivosmart and Fitbit Flex have several commonalities .
The Fitbit Flex has several advantages and beats Garmin Vivosmart hands down. It has a watch locking mechanism and allows you to move the device up and down your wrist easily. It also secures your device in the appropriate location on your arm so that it does keep on going around when working. It is also easier to use and navigate .Generally, it is fun to use in day-to day-activities. It is also durable, allows you to set multiple silent alarms, log you dietary information, record them and provide a graphical representation. It has a more comfortable display to read and a better charging system.
Garmin has a capability of displaying GPS data but it requires a separate GPS-enabled device like the phoenix S3 to generate your maps. Fit bit is more superior in the application category. Garmin has more focus on data i.e. it focuses on training and quantification of personal information, whereas Fitbit provides a lot of data and is concerned in simplification and interpretation of personal improvements. Fitbit Flex has a built in optical heart rate sensor and can monitor your heart rate all day. See also : Garmin Vivosmart Vs Fitbit Charge.
