Introduction

An active user of the Garmin Vivoactive may find that the wristband may start to break down over time, or get bored with the stock color provided with the device. Replacing the two wristband ends is a simple procedure that requires minimal time and can help make the Vivoactive look fresh out of the box again.

This band can also be changed based on the event you're wearing the watch to. Some options are fancy leather while others are simple rubber. This feature affords some customizability .
