Thanks Marianne,

This can be due to one of two things in most cases. Either the system is down or needs a factory reset on the Garmin Vivosmart HR. Or it needs a software update. But since your unit is so new and still fully covered under Garmins warranty please visit this site for free assistance and repair if needed. They will fix this free for you in either case;-)

I wish this was something you could do simply from here but they will help free of charge.

In any case, I will stick with you until this is complete.

Please rate my service thus far.EXCELLENT (5 Stars) would be greatly appreciated.

Also it is the only way I am credited for my time and expertise with you.

Once you rate, I will be notified and will add your question to my priority list so you can reach me anytime until this problem is solved.

Then you can reach me by simply replying to this message anytime.

Thank you and have a great day Marianne!
