Over stuffed from Turkey and Pumpkin pie? If your house is anything like mine then you can easily count five desserts within arm’s reach. How do you choose?! And, it’s so hard to eat just one – someone stop me! I guess I will just burn it off with a few extra minutes (at this rate hours) of cardio.

Garmin Vivosmart™ is the perfect motivator for over indulging in too many of my mother-in-law’s cookies. It really motivates me to get up and run, literally! Garmin Vivosmart is an activity tracker that records fitness activities and displays smart notifications from your compatible Bluetooth® device. The Garmin Vivosmart displays the time and tracks steps, calories, sleep patterns and distance. You can also pair it with a heart rate monitor during fitness activities.

I synced my Garmin Vivosmart with Garmin Connect™ so I can challenge my friends to a friendly competition. With Garmin Connect you can also save, plan and share your progress. It is depressing to log-in and not see any activity, so seeing my mileage and progress stats keeps me accountable for burning off those extra cookies. 

I have used other fitness trackers in the past, but what I like about Garmin Vivosmart is that it displays incoming calls, texts and emails with vibration alerts and a swipe on the touchscreen. I can’t tell you how many times I have had to stop mid-run to grab my phone for “an important” text from my husband, only to see he is asking where the milk is. With my Garmin Vivosmart, I can easily glance down without stopping and ignore those texts, calls and emails that can wait!

Garmin Vivosmart is available for $169.99 (excludes taxes) and is the perfect tool and motivator to help you stay fit through the holidays. Qualified customers also have the option to pay $0 down at the point of sale (excluding taxes), and 12 monthly payments of $14.17 with Sprint Easy Pay.
