Like the Forerunner 645 Music that was announced earlier in the year, the Vivoactive 3 Music will let you connect your Garmin watch to a pair of Bluetooth headphones, load the watch up with music 8211; about 500 songs 8211; and head off running with no need for a phone.
As this runs on Garmin8217;s platform, there8217;s full support for sports and activities, from heart rate tracking through to sleep tracking and all the steps you take in-between. There8217;s a GPS for accurate distance and speed measurements, along with an optical heart rate scanner on the back of the watch.
With a touch display there8217;s plenty of customisation and watch faces, as well as support for apps and smartphone notifications. To help keep you independent, the Vivoactive 3 Music also supports contactless payments, so you can swipe and go. Elsewhere, it supports all the functions of the existing Garmin Vivoactive 3.
The Garmin Vivoactive 3 Music will give you 7 days of life as a smartwatch, will sync with your smartphone via Garmin Connect so you can view all your data and is compatible with a wide range of existing Garmin sensors.
