    Using the Garmin Vivosmart HR+ for a week, I realized how off the Band 2 heart rate monitor is. Resting HR with Garmin and any device (including chest strap) is 59. Band 2 shows 52. Garmin and other devices give an average of about 133 for any slower run (approx 11min/mi) while Band 2 registers about 118.

    While that measure is off considerably, the distance each records is within 0.01 mile for a 4 mile run.

    I will wear both bands tomorrow for the same run and we'll see what happens then.

    What are other folks' experience?

    Thanks.

    I use the band 2 in exercise mode to capture my calorie burn side by side with a garmin ANT+ HR chest strap connected to my cycling trainer and outside of the Band being a little slower to change, for the most part it seems to be in alignment with chest strap reading.
