These are my friends at HRM USA — the place at which I have been buying ALL my many activity trackers for the last year. Given that they discovered that I blog they had asked whether I would do some reviews for them. I was glad to oblige. So, here is one. I have done more.
I am in SHOCK!
It had just stopped at 2:55pm. Frozen solid. Green heart-rate monitor lights not working and could not get them to come on.
“Heart Rate Monitors USA“, from whom I bought it (via Amazon), was excellent. Lady called Jackie. E-mailed me a UPS return. Waited till I got it. Managed to JUST make it to the UPS drop-off before 5pm.
I am getting an exchange. That might have been a MISTAKE! I was in a panic.
This was so wrong.
I had worn it, non-stop, 24×7, since I received in Thursday, November 16, 2017.
Yesterday, was my day-off running and today (Friday) I had a breakfast meeting, in Wolfeboro, at 8:30am. So, didn’t go running either.
So, two days without running, GPS activated.
It was working fine in the morning. Working fine around 2pm.
Crazy busy day …
Close to 4pm, while typing on my PC, I looked at the Vivoactive to check the time. Said 2:55pm. Initially thought that I was doing better on time than I realized. Then it slowly dawned on me. That is NOT correct.
Read the Amazon review above. I plugged it into my USB port to see if I could jump start it. USB not working. Will not pair with phone. Bluetooth dead. HR monitor dead.
