Cons

Using this fitness band underwater for a longer period would bring up the activity menu which then requires a longer finger hold on the screen, this might be because the screen was triggered by the underwater pressure.

Settings sometimes would lag and takes more than a couple syncs to update on the device. It is a movement based physical activity tracker; if not adjusted and updated in your setting it sometimes counts your actions before sleeping which will overcount your sleep.

Since Garmin is made for excessive physical activities or from a running background, it lowers down your heart rate when you are not moving your feet excessively and does not count elevated heart rate. GPS navigation tends to be oversensitive sometimes that it navigates places anywhere.

When used while doing shower the water splashs causes the screen to move and flashing through screens, displaying menus and other apps. It needs to be switch into charging mode to avoid unnecessary screen interventions.

The absence of buttons and its small touch screen would be likely a bother to those who have bigger fingers. Pairing it with phones via Bluetooth sometimes unrecognizable that requires you to retry a couple of times to connect. Excessive broadcasting of heart rate data decreases battery life.
