Recommendation of a Garmin watch for hiking.

I bought the vivoactive for hiking and the steps to load trail maps are bonkers. Which watch is easiest for this?

@kristensconnelly Thanks for reaching out!

We're sorry the Vivoactive isn't meeting your needs. It sounds like you're looking for a GPS watch that you can upload a route to. Do you want to upload a route/trail or a topo map of an area (perhaps both)? Are there any other features you would like the watch to have? Are you also carrying a smart phone with you on your hikes?

Here are a few options to consider:

It looks like your Vivosmart also has Garmin Connect IQ, was that the route you were taking to get a map on your watch?

Hopefully this helps, thanks!
