Garmin Vivosmart 5 review

The Vivosmart 5 is the first tracker Garmin has released since 2018, with a revised design and new features. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
The screen is 66 per cent bigger than the Vivosmart 4, with a new control button sitting below the panel. It works extremely well in use. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
Unlike the unibody design of the Vivosmart 4, the tracker in the Vivosmart 5 can be popped out and placed into other bands. A neat feature. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
Vivosmart 5 features the likes of Body Battery, Fitness Age, Respiration Tracking, Stress Tracking, Sleep Score and Monitoring. That's plenty of great metrics. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
We found the heart rate monitoring during activity tracking extremely good, as ever, though sleep tracking remains inconsistent across Garmin's devices. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
The Vivosmart offers a simple, metric-heavy entry point into its ecosystem, but we do think that most users would be better served with the Fitbit Charge 5. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
