    Has anyone tried the Garmin Vivoactive with the Lumia Icon? It's listed as "not tested" in Garmin's compatibility list.

    I'm running the latest Fast Ring Windows 10 (just updated this morning). This trusty Icon continues to amaze me after nearly 2 years!

    However, I'm getting really tired of my Band 2 performance or lack thereof. Battery barely makes it through 12 hours. I've reset it several times and have many features disabled just to stretch the battery life. A friend at work has the Vivoactive paired with his 640xl and loves it. Claims to get nearly 2 weeks between charges!

    You might try asking on the Garmin forums. I don't have the Vivoactive (Fenix 3HR here), and it works......sort of. Not great, but mostly ok. Syncing usually fails on the first attempt, but succeeds on the second (time-out issue?). Notifications are spotty. Sometimes they're there, sometimes not. This is not unique to the Garmin though. Notifications from my Band 2 to my Icon are the same. Sometimes they work, sometimes they don't. Frustrating, since when I use my LG V10, I get notifications on both devices, instantly. Can't get the Health live tile to work either. I love my Icon too, its such a great little phone. Hopefully MS will get it together with the Anniversary update.

    That makes us Band 2 owners happy.
