The Garmin Vivoactive 3 is a smartwatch from Garmin that comes with stainless steel sides and a fiber-reinforced polymer casing. The watch features a 1.2-inch Garmin Chroma with LED backlighting and 240 x 240p resolution and Gorilla Glass 3. For customization, the Vivoactive 3 connects to the Connect IQ Store for free watch faces.
Garmin Vivoactive 3 comes with Garmin Pay that allows you to make payments with your watch. This means you need not take out your wallet to make payment for a purchase. This is the first wearable from Garmin to come with this feature. This watch is also connected to the Connect IQ store so you can download widgets to make it more customizable.
To keep you active, the Garmin Vivoactive 3 comes with 15 preloaded sports apps. Thanks to integrated GPS, the watch can track your selected activity without the need for an active phone connection. However, in GPS mode, your battery life is reduced to 13 hours.
