On April the 12th, Garmin International (NASDAQ: GRMN) announced the launch of their smart activity tracker, the vivosmart 3. The activity tracker features a totally unique ultra-slim design, as well as a hidden display. The display remains concealed, until you’re ready to use it. The vivosmart 3 provides consumer with the highest quality fitness monitoring tools, including the VO2 max, fitness age and wellness monitoring. The vivosmart 3 is also equipped with Garmin’s exclusive Elevate wrist heart rate technology. This feature allows the user to monitor their heart rate around the clock. The following characteristics can also be tracked.
- Calories burned
- Intensity minute
- Steps taken
- Floors climbed
Simultaneously, the Garmin vivosmart 3 is also equipped with smart notifications. This allows consumers to remain up to date no matter where they go. The battery life for the vivosmart 3 has been enhanced. The device, which can be worn while showering and swimming, boasts a maximum battery life of five days. The vivosmart 3 provides consumers with the fitness monitoring tools needed to better understand their body’s physical performance. The device is the first in the vivo family to estimate the wearer’s VO2 max, which can identify the user’s aerobic performance. This is something that was previously only available with more expensive Garmin running watches.
The user’s VO2 max score will be translated into a basic rating for their fitness level. That rating will range from poor to superior. As the user exercises more frequently, their VO2 max will increase and their fitness age will drop. The vivosmart 3 is also equipped with a Strength Training activity monitor. This allows user to remain focused on their exercise, since the device does the rep counting for them. This feature is capable of tracking reps, sets and rest times. All data is sent to the Garmin Connect so the user can review it at a later time. The vivosmart 3 is now available at major retailers around the nation. This includes Best Buy, Amazon, REI, and Dick’s Sporting Goods. The activity tracker has a suggested retail price of $139.99. To learn more, click here now.
