Knows How You Move
Move IQ captures different activities, such as walking, running, biking, swimming and using an elliptical, to view on Garmin Connect.

Tells Time and “Time to Move”
While it’s ideal to be moving all throughout the day, we know that’s not always the case. Luckily, vívofit 3 tracks any and all of your movement, including inactivity. So while you might lose track of time and forget to move, vívofit 3 won’t. A red move bar appears on the display and a gentle alert sounds after 1 hour of inactivity. The move bar builds every 15 minutes until you reset it by walking for a couple of minutes.

24/7 Wearable
The vívofit 3 follows your progress 24/7 thanks to its 1-year battery life. It automatically monitors your rest when you go to sleep. It’s water resistant so you can wear it in the pool or the shower. Optional accessory bands in various colour schemes let you coordinate your vívofit 3 to your wardrobe.
