    Hello
    Has anyone had the chance or using the watch and able to pair it with the latest BB10 OS? Their site says you can pair it with Android 4.3. I am really hoping this watch is compatible with the passport so I don't need to bother another Android device.

    Thanks in advance

    I don't have a Vivo Smartwatch but I do have the VivoFit by Garmin and it Syncs well and communicates with Garmin's Android app Connect just fine on my Passport.

    Passport and 10.3.1.1154

    Thanks for confirming that!
    Their site says this,
    "The following is a list of phones that Garmin has tested and deemed compatible to work with our Bluetooth Smart devices: Android (Requires phone to be running Android 4.3 or higher):" and I think when they said Bluetooth Smart devices, that includes their latest as well *fingers-crossed*

    I'll be purchasing the new one and I'll update this once I get my hands on it

    I have vivosmart.
    Synchronization with my passport is going well...

    The only limitation I see (comparing with iPhone which I tried, too) are notifications. I'm receiving only incoming call notification on passport. But nothing critical for me...

    Oh Cool!
    I'm getting the vivosmart mainly for the call notification (aside of the form and fitness feature) since I tend to miss calls when I'm at the field or just somewhere in our office (usually set on vibrate). The rest of notifications can rest in the Blackberry Hub
    Thank you for the input

    I just got a passport. I also have a vivosmart. I cannot get the passport to discover the vivosmart. Thoughts?

    well... I don't have vivosmart right now (problems with display....) but if I remember:
    - switch bluetooth on vivosmart to "Pair on"
    - run garmin Connect app (android) on passport
    And everything was done...

    The best smartwatches I've found for us blackberry folks are made by Martian. They're classy, durable, and easy to use. I have a Martian Voice Command and Notifier that work well with the Martian app I downloaded through Snap.

    Which OS are you on? 10.3.1.2243 has a much better Android Emulator. If you're on the Stock OS I would install that leak.

    T-Mobile  SQW100-1 Passport running Autoloaded 10.3.1.2243.

    I have the PP with 10.3.0.908 and the Vivosmart.

    When I first got the Vivosmart, was able to sync but not the messages. Everything else seemed to work.

    Then they upgraded the Vivosmart software and figured this going to fix things. I was wrong, was the complete opposite.

    Now it doesn't sync or can't find the device most of the time.

    Many reviewers in the Google Play Store were giving it bad ratings. Maybe they need to update again as there be a sync bug.

    Also hoping 10.3.1 will make it work.
