Garmin vivoactive 3 overview

  • 1Description

The 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.

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.

    Garmin vivoactive 3 reviews

    vivoactive 3 (Black with Slate Hardware) is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 11.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful watch and good golf app First of all I bought it because of golf functionality and wanted to have watch for daily use. Golf functionality is great, very easy to add scores, GPS is fast and phone app is very good as well for longer statistics. Watch looks good and I am using it every day. Battery lasts without GPS about 4 or 5 days. If playing golf then I could play 2 rounds on the row. Also it has heart rate tracking and that was something I was looking for. Minus side is screen. Contrast is not the best and if you compare it to Apple watch 3, its quite bad :) Conclusion, if you are looking smart watch, you should look Apple watch 3. But if you want to have good sport watch with fast and good GPS - Garmin is the best.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great incentive to get moving Bought this as a reminder to stay more active. I considered Apple watches and other devices, but chose this because I wanted an activity tracker first, with bluetooth gimmicks second.� Getting notifications on my wrist is enough for my needs. After a couple of weeks' wear, I'm very happy. The heart monitor is rock solid, and the stress monitor (a key decision-feature) is surprisingly good. The optional (free) watch faces are way better than the rather mundane out-of-the-box face.� Watch feels lighter than my old dive watch. Optional screen protectors are good- reduced the somewhat hyperactive touch sensitivity.� Battery life is great- 3 days, with a little GPS use. Charges in 90 minutes or less.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not Very Accurate There are a number of discrepancies between and within screens on this watch and within the Garmin Connect app. I walk a circular course yet the elevation loss is consistently greater than the gain. I walk the same course but stairs climed is consistently less than stairs descended and the stair count up varies considerably from day to day. Walking the same course can yield a range of distances. The heart rate monitor gives varying results between screens. All this leads to questions about the calories burned. As for the sleep monitor, if you get up to use the bathroom, in the morning you may find you only slept for 2 hours. It's a fun toy with lots of potential. But, Garmin has a lot of work to do.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Fitness Watch! It was about time for Garmin to enter the market with a touchscreen fitness/smart watch.� Tracking is accurate so far. A lot of preloaded activities. You can also create your own. Some improvements can be made in the strength training but I understand is kind of hard to track all exercises in a gym. I like the fact that calculates calorie count in strength training as well.� The touch screen works good and the battery life is decent. For me I get around 5 days with HR sensor 24/7 and I can track around 10hrs or GPS enabled outdoor activities if I turn off the Bluetooth and the backlight (that you don't need during the day anyway). The display is very easy to read outdoor and under direct sunlight. It looks like some software updates are due to fix some small glitches but I guess that's normal for a new developed product. I like the Garmin connect app as well. Highly recommended.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just right I was looking for a good smartwatch that looks descent and functional for the fitness tracking. At first I looked at the usual suspects with Tizen or Android Wear OS. However, I noticed that all of them have poor battery life and relatively heavy. The Fit family disappointed with the phone software incompatibility issues. So I looked at Garmin. After researching Forerunners I decided to go with this - and never regretted. The good: 1. Wonderful battery life: about 17% a day with 1-1.5 hr of GPS tracking. 2. Lightweight, comfortable and well built. 3. Easy to connect with the phone. 4. Heart rate monitor looks accurate. The OK'ish: 1. Notifications. Still figuring out how to filter only what I consider really important. In any case, the messages are of the right size and content. 2. Faces. They look much uglier on the watch than in the Garmin store. I ended up using the default one (on the picture.) 3. Not everything is intuitive (like what needs to be done to remove the face I did not like from the watch.) The bad: - nothing so far.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really good buy I ordered from BHphoto and the item shipped and was receive promptly and accurately. It seems to work great and I really like some of the new features compared to the original vivoactice. The only drawback is the battery life. While the original gave me Two weeks or more on a charge this gives about 6 days. I'm assuming that it's due to the heart rate sensor being active all the time if you wear it all night nd day to track sleep and stress..

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice fitness tracker Still getting used to it . Not sure it tracks the results accurately . Gives me a lot lower value counts (Calories,VO2Max etc)� than what the various fitness machines and other tracking devices traditionally are showing.� Used to have� Fitbit Surge that died (2x died) and I kind of liked the Fitbit mobile app better but because of reliability and ratings I decided to give Garmin a try. Jury is still out.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice so far I have enjoyed this activity tracker for the last 2 weeks. It does well on notifications and tracks the 3 exercises that I do. (rowing, treadmill, and lifting weights) It is very light weight and comfortable to wear. The band is just ok, not the nicest looking but it works. All in all I would recommend it to a friend.
