Garmin Vivoactive 3 Music

Available in multiple configurations, this Garmin Vivoactive 3 Music is the top of the line, yet only $20 more than the next model down. Now equipped with the Music (on board), with Spotify compatibility and Garmin Pay, the Vivoactive 3 Music is ideal for on-the-go athletes that want to ditch their phone for a bit. For cyclists who are already familiar with Garmin cycling products, the Vivoactive 3 Musci is a smart fitness watch that take full advantage of the Connect IQ App, features the ever-expanding Garmin Pay function as well as the Elevate wrist-based heart rate system. It can integrate for many activities, including cycling, running, swimming and much more, has all the health-oriented Activity Tracking tools, and at just 43.7mm diameter for the bezel is compact and comfortable enough to be worn 24/7. Of course it carries GPS and GLONASS global positioning support, a barometric altimeter, compass, thermometer, and accelerometer you have come to expect from a Garmin device, delivers Smart Notifications from your phone and is set-up for Bluetooth Smart and ANT+ communication.

The Vivoactive 3 Music sits above other Vivo models while lacking some of the hardcore cycling features of the Fenix series watches, with a focus on health tracking and lifestyle use for active people. Priced at $279.99, with a sunlight visible, color touchscreen display, at just 43 grams, the Vivoactive 3 Music will hit the sweetspot for many users. It has onboard music storage, can still be used to control your smartphone based music and now Garmin has brought Spotify support to the unit. If you are looking for advanced cycling, running, and swim metrics we recommend a model from the Fenix 5+ series. Battery life for the rechargeable Li-ion system is up to 7 days in Smartwatch Mode, and up to 13 hours in GPS mode. Charging is handled by a USB cable. Garmin uses a chemically strengthened glass for durability and reasonable cost, along with a stainless steel bezel and fiber-reinforced polymer body with stainless steel rear cover. The lightweight, flexible, silicone Quick Release band is an industry standard 20mm wide.

We don't have the space to work through all of the specific training and health functions here, so we list them all below and recommend you check these on Garmin's website for more information. Excel Sports has been a top-level Garmin dealer within the bike industry for many years, and it has been our dedicated customer base that has requested more wearables/Smart watches to complement their triathlon and Fenix series watches, Edge head units and Varia radar and light systems.
