To compete with the newly launched Fitbit’s Iconic smartwatch and Apple watch, Garmin added three new smartwatches to its Vivo lineup of wearables, Vivoactive 3 being the most prominent amongst the newly launched series.
Vivoactive 3, a successor to Vivoactive HR, has a modern looking round display, built-in GPS, workout sensors, a long enough battery life of 13 hours and a “Side Swipe” touch modality among many other notable features.
It offers 15 different indoor and outdoor apps to choose from alongside third-party app support for apps like Uber. Being a fitness watch, Vivoactive 3 introduces VO2 max – a tracking system for body oxygen transportation.
Vivosport is a stripped down version of the aforementioned Vivoactive 3. It includes fitness monitoring system, VO2 and multiple built-in sports apps but it doesn’t really supports the high end features that Garmin offers. Vivosport, on the other hand, doesn’t comes with multiple customizable features like band and display.
Last in the line, Vivomove HR, the most fashion forward and style-high option of the three now includes a touch-screen. The device can be used as both a smart watch and an activity tracker. The hybrid device allows you to keep a track of activities such as number of steps taken, weather updates, heart rate, and text or email alerts.
All the three Vivo smart watches will be available for purchase later this year. Vivoactive 3 will be running from $300 to $330 based on the build. The Vivosport comes in around $200 while the Vivomove HR sports version starts at $200 with the premium version available at $300.
