Was WONDERFUL until it stopped workingMy husband and I bought the VIVOactive HR when they came out. In August Garmin did an update that screwed up the watch. It hasn't worked right since and for 2 months now they have not been able to have a software update to fix what they messed up and they don't know when they will have. BAD service for 2 watches that are $250 apiece.
