Garmin International, Inc today announced the Vicoactive 3 Music, a GPS smartwatch with integrated music that lets users bring along their favourite tunes to every workout or activity. It features Garmin Pay contactless payments and thousands of ways to customise with free watch faces, widgets, data fields and apps through the Garmin Connect IQTM store.
Featuring the same fitness, wellness and smart connectivity features first introduced on the Vivoactive 3, the Vivoactive 3 Music gives users an extra pep in their step with on-device music storage of up to 500 songs. Download offline music playlists from select music-streaming services like Deezer (coming soon), or transfer music from a computer directly to the watch. Once the music is loaded, pair the Vivoactive 3 Music with a set of compatible bluetooth headphones (sold separately) and go.
Garmin Pay means Vivoactive 3 Music wearers can leave their cash and credit cards at home and still stop for a coffee, pop into a store, or grab a bite to eat throughout their day. Utilising their Garmin Pay wallet, users have the same rewards and benefits of the physical cards, with the convenience of having them right on the wrist for contactless payment.
With ElevateTM wrist-based heart rate and over 15 preloaded GPS and indoor sports apps including yoga, running, strength training and more, the Vivoactive 3 Music is packed with features to keep up with a varied active lifestyle. The always-on Garmin Chroma Display is easy to read — even in direct sunlight. Like all of Garmin’s wearables, it is safe for swimming and showering and has a battery life of up to seven days in smartwatch mode and five hours in GPS with music mode.
Customisation has never been easier with thousands of watch faces, widgets, data fields and apps available to download from the Garmin Connect IQ store. Keep tabs on when your ride is arriving with Uber ETA, turn on the lights at home with the SmartThings app, or check the AccuWeather MinuteCast app to find out when the rain is going to start.
The redesigned Garmin Connect makes it easier than ever to beat yesterday with colourful activity cards that give users an at-a-glance to the most important stats. Simply scroll down to compare today’s totals to past results or tap in for more detailed information. Activities and other stats captured by the device are presented in vivid detail with data customised and filtered so that the user is only seeing what is most relevant to his or her goals. Users can connect with friends and family to motivate one another, join challenges, engage in friendly competitions and score colourful new Garmin Connect badges when goals are crushed.
The vívoactive 3 Music comes with a black silicone 20mm quick release industry standard band and has a recommended retail price of £229.99 and is available now.
