Garmin vivoactive 3 is an activity tracker and smartwatch combined into an all-around sleek-looking device. Its stylish design includes a sunlight-readable color touchscreen and a built-in Elevate heart rate monitor. In terms of functionality, the vivoactive 3 features built-in sports apps that provide GPS- and GLONASS-enabled running, biking, and golf data tracking—to name just a few. Advanced activity metrics, such as VO2 max estimates, heart rate variability (HRV) data, and fitness age, are also available.
In addition to sport-specific metrics, the vivoactive 3 also serves as an all-day activity tracker, so you can see how many steps you’ve taken, floors you’ve climbed, calories you’ve burned, and more. To top it off, the vivoactive 3 also monitors your sleep, so you can track quality and gain insights into sleep patterns and behavior.
The vivoactive 3 is also well-equipped for wireless communications and features. In addition to GPS and GLONASS support, the vivoactive 3 is equipped with Bluetooth and ANT+ technology, which allows it to pair with your smartphone for text and media alerts, calendar reminders, and more. You can even use vivoactive 3 to pay for purchases using Garmin Pay, a built-in purchasing app new to the vivo wearable series.

Daily Fitness and Stress Tracking
With help from Elevate wrist-based heart rate technology, the vivoactive 3 lets you monitor key aspects of your fitness and stress to show how your body responds under various circumstances. For example, it’s able to estimate your VO2 max and fitness age. It also tracks your heart rate variability (HRV), which is used to calculate and track your stress level. The vivoactive 3 can make you aware when physical or emotional sources cause your stress level to rise so you can find a way to relieve the pressure.
Life doesn’t have a pause button, so stay connected with your vivoactive 3 smartwatch while you’re playing hard or working out. Once paired with your compatible smartphone, you’ll be able to receive and even respond to text messages and see social media updates, emails, and more on your wrist.
