Garmin Vivoactive 3 Music GPS Smartwatch With Integrated Music Launched

After all, Garmin ensures that the Vivoactive 3 Music comes with all of the features that launched with last year's model, and the list is extensive. With GPS capabilities and support for NFC payments, Garmin wants to Vivoactive 3 Music to be a wearable that allows you to leave your phone at home. They can also download select music service apps from Connect IQ store, and then sync their customized playlists to their watch for offline ad-free listening.

Garmin today announced the new vívoactive 3 Music, a Global Positioning System smartwatch with integrated music storage for up to 500 songs that will allow users enjoy their workout with their favourite songs. Deezer is given as an example of one such service, but apparently support for this is coming soon rather than being available now. Both earn their name thanks to the built-in storage for 500 songs that you can take with you on a run, no phone needed. It has Global Positioning System, a heart-rate sensor and built-in Bluetooth to connect to your favorite pair of wireless running headphones.

The Garmin Vivoactive 3 Music caters to an audience that takes fitness slightly less seriously than the Forerunner family's followers, thus fetching a reasonable $299.99. You can also transfer music directly from your computer to the watch. Otherwise, it's virtually identical in design and abilities as the Vivoactive 3.

Mainly focused on in-depth activity tracking and professional workout motivation, Garmin's robust wearable devices can do most of the things the industry-leading Apple Watch Series 3 is capable of, except for standalone voice calls.

The Garmin vivoactive 3 Music has a built-in Global Positioning System receiver to track your exercises.

Still, if you're into athletic activities, it's hard to compete against this bad boy at $300. The other big feature is battery life: it can last up to seven days in smartphone mode, and up to 5 hours when in Global Positioning System with music mode.
