The vívoactive 3 is Garmin’s first wearable to be Garmin Pay ready, which lets you pay for purchases with your watch. Please note this feature is currently not supported in South Africa and the rest of Africa.

vívoactive 3 is compatible with Garmin’s Connect IQ store, where you can download watch faces, widgets and apps that make it go from smartwatch to your watch. Keep tabs on when your Uber is arriving, turn on your lights at home with the SmartThings app, and even use the AccuWeather MinuteCast app to find out when the rain will start. You can also use Garmin’s free Face It watch face app to add personality to your device that’s uniquely you. Simply download the app, choose any image from your photo library, make your customisations, and set it as your watch’s face.

With more than 15 preloaded sports apps, finding a fun way to stay active is easy. Hit the golf course, go for a bike ride, take a yoga class, or even try your hand at stand-up paddle boarding. When you head outside, built-in GPS lets vívoactive 3 track the details of your chosen activity, with no phone connection required. From snowboarding to swimming and at least a dozen other options in between, this watch is the perfect playmate.

Feel free to take this watch outside in all kinds of weather. Not only is it safe for swimming and showering, its Garmin Chroma Display is easy to read (even in direct sunlight) and housed under extra-durable Corning Gorilla Glass. It also features the Side Swipe interface, which makes for quick scrolling and swift navigation of menus and widgets. Comfortable, convenient and easy to see the vívoactive 3 just fits.

Keep your workout schedule fresh and invigorating. Create your own custom running, cycling, cardio or strength workouts, and download them to your watch. Then, your vívoactive smartwatch will keep track of the exercises, reps, sets and rest time for you.

With help from Garmin’s Elevate wrist-based heart rate technology², the vívoactive 3 allows you to monitor key aspects of your fitness and stress to show how your body responds under various circumstances. For example, it’s able to estimate your VO2 max and fitness age which are two indicators of physical fitness that can often improve over time with regular exercise. Plus, it tracks your heart rate variability (HRV), which is used to calculate and track your stress level. The vívoactive 3 can make you aware when physical or emotional sources cause your stress level to rise so you can find a way to relieve the pressure.

Life doesn’t have a pause button, so stay connected with your vívoactive 3 smartwatch while you’re playing hard or working out. Once paired with your compatible smartphone, you’ll be able to receive and even respond5 to text messages and see social media updates, emails and more right on your wrist. Find your phone, access music controls and let friends LiveTrack your sports. Your finished activities will even be automatically upload to Garmin Connect, Garmin’s online fitness community.

Syncing your activities to Garmin Connect is for more than just storing your data. Garmin Connect is a thriving online community where people on the go can connect and compete by joining challenges, encourage each other’s successes and even share their triumphs via social media.
