What’s the difference between Sport and Premium versions?

The big difference between the sport and premium versions are the particular bands and case material that come with the premium versions. As an example, the new Sea Foam version comes with a Silicone band, and case material is made from a fibre-reinforced polymer. The Onyx Black version, on the other hand, comes with both a Suede band and an extra silicon band. The case material for the premium versions is stainless steel. Other than these changes and additions both versions are the same.

Has anything changed on these new versions?

Nothing has changed between these iterations this change is purely cosmetic. The vivomove HR is primarily designed to be a balance between a traditional watch with a hidden digital aspect. This fitness watch comes with all of the most requested features including stress tracking, smartphone notifications and activity tracking. I'll list the major features for the vivomove HR are the following:

Touchscreen

Battery Life (Smartwatch mode: 5 days, Watch Mode: 2 weeks) – your performance will be somewhere between these. It’s mostly dependent on how much you use the smartwatch features.

Smartwatch Clock options (alarm, timer, stopwatch)

Sensors (Optical Heart Rate Sensor, Barometric Altimeter and Ambient Light sensor)

Daily Smart notifications (you have received text messages, calls, music controls)

Activity Tracking

VO2 Max

Automatic Rep Counting

HR features (Stress Tracking)

Overall Garmin has been dramatically increasing the number of style options available across all their fitness watches. There also seems to be a returning theme of new colours styles like the Black Rose Gold options starting to become a staple across every Garmin watch.
