Night Running: Challenging. Garmin Vivoactive: Enlightening and Superb

Goodbye Apple Watch/Runtastic: hello Garmin Vivoactive and Garmin Connect! The difference in performance and between these two products is staggering. Apple Watch: buggy, annoying to use, crap battery etc. Garmin: solid, dependable, perfect to use. Yesterday I also learned that running in pitch black night slows me down! I was unsure of myself for many stretches of the course so I ran cautiously, clocking in at over nine minute miles, which is annoying, but there we are. Beats an injury from a nasty fall.

  1. Had the same experience. I was very hopeful for the (expensive) Apple Watch. But it’s buggy, touchscreen is not very usable, battery dies all the time, heart rate monitor is unreliable. What a difference from my Garmin!
