Garmin Vivoactive 5: The Complete Beginners Guide

I just realized today that I still had this post in my drafts folder from a week ago, after I had published a complete Garmin Vivoactive 5 Beginners Guide over on YouTube. So, if you were subscribed to YouTube, you likely already saw it. But, if you’re like the 84.0% of people who watch my YouTube videos that are not subscribed to the channel, then, well, you probably didn’t see it.

In any event, this is one of my usual guides packed full of tips and tricks for the Vivoactive 5, covering how it works from start to finish. Here’s all the timestamps for the various sections, which you’ll find as YouTube chapters within the video up above:

0:00 Quick Overview
0:31 Hardware Basics
3:30 Watch Faces and Customization
4:31 Widgets & Daily Activity Tracking
5:42 Sleep Coach & Nap Tracking
7:44 Sleep Tracking & Sleep Score
8:42 HRV Status Explainer
11:34 Morning Report
13:10 Weather Widgets and Apps Drawer
15:07 The Flashlight
15:48 Shortcuts & Recents Menu
17:35 Sport & Workout Usage
19:28 Large Font Option
Sport Data Field Customization
22:54 Workout Benefit & Recovery Time
24:17 Offline Music & Spotify
28:15 Contactless Payments (Garmin Pay)
29:27 Spilling My Coffee

With that – thanks for watching!
