Product Expert smartwatches

With the Garmin Vivoactive 3, you can work on your fitness effectively and enjoy your favorite music at the same time. Put songs on the sports watch and control them from your wrist. The Vivoactive 3 has a heart rate monitor and GPS sensor which gives you a lot of insight into your workouts. For example, you'll know in exactly which heart rate zone you're training, and how long you take to travel a certain distance. The Vivoactive 3 Music also counts your steps, measure calories burned, and allows you to receive and view notifications from your smartphone. Set personal movement goals and view your progress on your Vivoactive as well as in the accompanying app.

Note: an adapter isn't included. Want to charge the watch via a socket? If so, order an adapter separately.

    Can't create interval workouts on the watch like the 235. Has to be done via app

I use it for running three times a week and it works just fine. I also use it for workouts.

Did not try the 'smart' features like pay though.

  • Pros:
    Sport tracking activity’s

Using it since a few days know but I must say that the watch is pretty accurate. A lot of features and sport tracking activities. The “find my phone feature” is pretty cool. Still need to figure out/ test all the possibilities.

Its a fantastic product : fit for purpose.
