I have begun feeling festively plump as we approach December so I am looking at tech that can assist with a more healthy lifestyle, writes Marisa Cashill.

The Vivosmart, from Garmin in their 25th anniversary year, is a stylish activity tracker with smart notifications in the form of a sleek, lightweight curved band.

It syncs with the Garmin Connect mobile app, when in range with a compatible Bluetooth device, to check throughout on activity progress, total sleep hours, periods of movement and more.

The gadget displays time, steps, distance, calories, move bar, and goal countdown, said to be ‘like having a personal coach and assistant right on your wrist’.

It is available in berry, purple, blue, black and slate, and in a small or large wrist band size.
