From snowboarding to swimming and more than a dozen other sports, this watch is the perfect companion.
It adapts to you and everything you do
Don't be afraid to use this watch outdoors in all kinds of weather conditions. Not only can it be used for swimming and in the shower6, but its Garmin Chroma Display™ is very easy to read, even in direct sunlight, and is protected by extremely resistant glass. It is also equipped with the Side Swipe™ interface, which allows you to quickly scroll and smoothly navigate through the different menus and widgets. You choose how you want to wear it, whether you prefer to use your index finger or thumb to navigate the device. Convenient, comfortable and easy to see: vívoactive 3 has it all.
Download and create workouts
Make your training program fresh and challenging. Create your own running, cycling, cardio or strength workouts and download them to your watch. Based on this information, the vívoactive smartwatch will track your workouts, reps, sets and rest time.
Daily fitness and stress monitoring
With the help of Elevate™2 wrist-based heart rate technology, vívoactive 3 lets you monitor key aspects of your fitness and stress levels and tells you how your body responds in different circumstances. For example, it can estimate your VO2 max and your age based on fitness, two fitness indicators that can improve over time if you exercise regularly. It also tracks heart rate variability (HRV), which is used to calculate and display your stress level. vívoactive 3 lets you know when physical or emotional factors cause your stress level to rise, so you can find ways to relieve the pressure.
Life doesn't have a pause button, so stay connected with your vívoactive 3 smartwatch while you're playing sports or working out. Once you've paired it with your compatible smartphone, you can receive and even reply5 to text messages, as well as see what's new on your social networks or emails, among other possibilities, right on your wrist. Find your phone, access music controls and let your friends track your sporting activity with LiveTrack. When you complete an activity, it will automatically upload to our online fitness community Garmin Connect.
