Day 12 of 12 Days of Carlee’s Christmas

Thanks so much for stopping by for the TWELFTH AND FINAL day of my BIG giveaway! I am BEYOND BLESSED to work with some amazing companies who have offered up some of their awesome products. Not all of the giveaways are necessarily sponsored by the companies (meaning, some of the stuff I had at the house and wanted to spread the wealth), but even still, they are all companies I love and want to spread the word about.

Just a word of warning: Today is the FINAL giveaway in my #12DaysOfCarleesChristmas, but make sure you've entered all of the active giveaways. I would hate for you to miss out. Also, some of the entries are available daily (ie tweeting about the specific giveaway, pinning a picture on Pinterest, etc), so if it is an item you are super stoked on, I’d recommend entering as many times as possible.

Day 12 - 1 Garmin vívoactive Smartwatch

Okay, okay, so I get a LOT of questions from folks who see me wearing TWO Garmin bands... "Why do you wear two?" "What do each of them do?" "Does your arm get tired?" I rock both the vívofit 2 and Forerunner 220 - both for different reasons.

PS It's the same vívofit 2 in all of the photos, I just have different bands
that I swap out based on my outfit and feelings ;)  

I wear the vívofit 2 ALL DAY, ERR DAY! This is my activity tracker. It tracks my steps, watches me sleep (okay, that sounded creepy, more like it feels me sleep... okay, maybe even creepier... it records my sleep patterns), keeps me moving throughout the day with its inactivity alert, etc. [PS I have a review of it here if you're interested.]


The Forerunner 220 is my GPS watch. It gives me all the data on my workouts that I would ever want (and then some!). It shows me my distance, pace, time, etc. I upgraded to the 220 from the 110 and have fallen in love (although, honestly, I wish it came in another color other than purple, since that isn't my jam, but hey, beggars can't be choosers). It syncs with my Garmin Connect Mobile app and I am able to check out my stats from my run as soon as I finish.


Well, Garmin, being the amazingly awesome and smart company that they are, realized I probably didn't need to be rocking TWO watches... and the hybrid vívoactive Smartwatch was born. Okay, maybe it had nothing to do with me, but I'd like to think they had my wrist in mind when this brain child was born.

Not only does the vívoactive Smartwatch meld together a GPS watch and an activity tracker into one, but it also has features of those new, fan-dangled smart watches! You know, like you can control your music on your wrist, it informs you with incoming calls/ texts/ emails/ calendar items, will alert you of your social media notifications, etc. I mean, it's pretty FAN-FREAKIN'-TASTIC if you ask me!

And, as a Garmin Ambassador I was gifted one of them, how amazing is that?! Well, even more amazing is the fact that I am slightly scared by new technology and decided I would like to offer it to YOU!

This seems and looks so awesome. I don't own or use either but have been researching lately one for Christmas. This would be awesome to start the new year with a bang!

I'm a big fan of Garmins! I currently have the Garmin 220 purple (upgraded about 1-2 years ago from the 110) like you!
I'm hoping to win this watch to give to my main squeeze as an attempt to persuade him to start running with me. He hates it...but he has the longest legs...doesn't he know how wonderful his stride would be?! ;)

I wear a garmin 110, really in need of a new one:)

I have an Apple Watch, but long runs KILL the battery! The fit bit is awesome too, but didn't give me all the stats I wanted, and never felt super accurate... This tracker sounds like the perfect in between! Fingers crossed to win :)
