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.
