Giveaway Extravaganza: Garmin Vivoactive


You know how they say size matters? Well in this case – smaller is better.  And there’s no GPS running watch on the market today as thin as the Garmin Vivoactive.  It’s basically like a piece of paper ate a piece cardboard – it’s that thick. Roughly. Oh, and it has a color display. Yes, color!

Don’t worry though, despite the colorful display you can still actually use it to train and even race.  Or, just play Flappy Bird. For realz, you can load the Flappier Bird app onto it.  Game over.
