“Anyone who is out and about being active can relate to the struggle of where to stash a credit card or cash, and has had to forgo a post-workout snack or coffee as a result.

Mr. Engelhard (Al) Sundoro, Managing Director, Garmin South Asia-

Built to fit all types of users, in all conditions

Smart, sturdy and stylish, the vívoactive 3 features polished stainless steel metal details and an always-on high-resolution Garmin ChromaTM display for great readability in all lighting conditions. The vívoactive 3 also introduces Side SwipeTM, a control which makes for quick scrolling and swift navigation of menus, widgets and stats. And because some users will prefer to scroll with their thumb and others with their index fingers, the vívoactive 3 features an ambidextrous design, allowing it to be worn in whichever orientation is most comfortable. Like all of Garmin’s wearables, the vívoactive 3 is safe for swimming and showering2 and has a battery life of up to seven days in smartwatch mode and 13 hours in GPS mode3.


Monitoring features for better understanding of your fitness levels

Garmin’s Elevate wrist-based heart rate, monitored 24/7, gives users access to fitness monitoring features including VO2 max and fitness age which provide users with valuable data to monitor changes in their fitness level. Increased activity will improve these numbers over time.

All-day stress tracking is also available on the vívoactive 3 by monitoring HRV (heart rate variability) data. The ability to view both current stress levels at the wrist and a longer timetable of stress on Garmin Connect allows customers to identify patterns and consider making lifestyle changes to avoid or better cope with stress-inducing situations. A Four-Fold Breath relaxation timer further helps users balance stress and rest.

Make your vívoactive 3 yours

With thousands of watch faces, widgets and apps available to download for free from the Garmin Connect IQ store, users can customize their device, making it go from being a smartwatch to something way more personalized.
