For the runner who races distances from the 5K to marathon and wears her watch no matter what—whether she’s in running clothes or business attire.
STAND OUT FEATURES
Versatility For daily use, we love the lo-pro design with interchangeable straps and classic watch face. It makes a seamless transition from workouts to pretty much any other occasion we can think of.
The Vivoactive 3 also comes preloaded with 15 different indoor workout apps (more can be added) and has thousands of potential downloadable watch faces, widgets, and apps from the GARMIN IQ store. If that’s not enough, it’s comfortable on the wrist whether worn on the left side or the right, and it utilizes the new universal GARMIN charger (good for items released this year and later).
Ease of Use We love the easy-to-use touch screen, swipe function, and bright backlight for nighttime running. In fact, the display is easy to see no matter the time of day or weather. We wore it on nighttime runs, pre-dawn runs, blisteringly sunny runs, and even one run in a torrential downpour.
Functionality In addition to accurate GPS tracking, there are several key functions we found extra useful when it comes to training. Among them are the ability to monitor daily stress and how we handle it; heart rate (measured down to the second!) to better understand training and recovery; sleep patterns to monitor restful sleep, restless sleep, and awake hours each night; and activity analytics like steps taken and floors climbed.
Outside of training, GARMIN Pay makes pre- or post-run shopping easy while smartphone pairing keeps us connected and, on more than one occasion, helped us find our phone.BUY NOW
