Inaccurate Sleep Reading
I've been using this watch for about a month and it's still not properly tracking my sleep. I figured it wasn't accurate because I just started using it and it needed time to acclimate to my body but here we are a month later and it's still inaccurate by a long shot. I was in bed reading for two hours and chatting here and there with my partner. I wake up this morning to check my sleep score and it recorded those two hours as deep sleep and gave me a high score for great sleep when in reality, I didn't get a minute of deep sleep and am exhausted today since I slept so poorly. It makes me wonder which other features are wrong that can't be so easily measured. I'll be returning.

Nice watch
I bought this to replace the dark purple Lily. It fell off my wrist and they don't make the dark purple anymore. I like Garmin and the closest in purple was the Vivoactive 5. This has a larger face. Seems to be more reactive in response and has way more features than the Lily, more than I will ever use. During the 1st week of use, I looked down and plastic part of the edge of the watch band was gone. Thank goodness the prong held it in place. I would have been upset to lose another. I do not run; I have a desk job so I'm not sure why this has happened on both watches to begin with. I called Garmin, they sent me a new band. If I lost this one, I will not buy a Garmin again. Overall, very nice watch. I am pleased so far.

Nice Features
Upgraded my vivosmart 4 to the vivoactive 5. Love the features of the vivoactive 5. Only complaint is Garmin didn't include a USB A-C adaptor and I needed to read the manual.

Great features , but the user interface..
Just bought mine and I think the fitness capabilities are so cool! That said it is way too hard to download music, and the user interface is very difficult. You have to download the garmin app, then a seperate garmin app, to enjoy the capabilities. No reason they need two seperate apps. I'd give this a 3/5 but it is so cute 4/5.

Exercise Centric
I've been using the Garmin vivoactive 5 for two weeks now, and I'm absolutely thrilled with it. Previously, I wore an Apple Watch for eight years, going through three different models, and I was always satisfied with the Apple Watch. However, the Garmin better suits my lifestyle and caters more to my needs as a runner. The Garmin watch is incredibly accurate in every aspect; if it says you ran a mile, you can trust that you really did run a mile.

Not sure what is meant by Review Title
I have had to call Garmin for help at least four times, support was excellent. Even with the help I continue to struggle with the simple task of " Power Off". I find it very difficult to scroll down to get to Power Off. The manual is not helpful at all. I am fortunate that I only need the watch to monitor my vitals. That activity is working very well. Not sure what several of the functions are such as Body Battery. Overall all I am satisfied.

Looks Great! Light & Accurate
Definitely was hesitant to switch from an (old) apple watch to garmin, but man, I'm so glad I did! The garmin is a classic. It's light weight, much more accurate and does everything I need it to do. The first time I ran in it, I thought, why did I have an apple for so long? I immediately noticed how light it was, did not bother me while I ran, and how accurate it was compared to the Apple Watch. It functions just like an Apple Watch, with notifications, sleep, etc. It's great and I definitely like the look much more (circle vs. square). Cost efficient and connects well with devices!

Love all the different features
I love this watch! I like seeing how long I nap(although I don't nap very often), and to see how my sleep was.
