Running: I LOVE THIS WATCH FOR RUNNING. It is seriously a step up from the forerunner. I can customize my activity screen to all my favorites with laps, heartrate, and target zones. I can sent alerts for distances, drinking water, and much more. The GPS is spot on. I love the break down of each mile with speed and elevation. My only con: When I run in the rain, the screens change on their own. After a 10K race last month in an absolute downpour, my screens and watchface had been completely changed. It took me a while to reset everything back to my preferences. My fix: if it's raining, I lock the screen after starting the activing.
Biking: I already have a WAHOO Cadence reader attached to my biking shoe. The activity for biking on this watch also syncs to this 3rd party cadence tracker. Though, it is not the most relable. While riding indoors on a tripod, cadence tracks well however once outdoors and on a windy day, it looses connection for brief periods of time.... this may honestly be WAHOO's problem but I thought I'd mention it in case others have experienced the same. Still love the GPS plus heartrate while on long, tough workout bike rides! (See pic of cadence attached)
Swimming: I'm not sure why other reviews say their watch does not track laps, because mine does beautifully! It tracks, times, and gives me a good reading/evaluation of how hard I pushed myself after 2500 meters in a 25m long pool. :-) my only complaint is that I DO wish heartrate was available in swim mode....Maybe in the future?? I also wish outdoor/open water swimming could be tracked via GPS....Maybe also in the "future". :-) I still use it while swimming open water but don't have the benefit of distance.
Also, as for sleep, it seems to be a lot more accurate than the vivofit 2....probably because of the heartrate. My only complainthere is the back light that turns on whenever I move in my sleep. I want to still see what time it is when needed, so I change the lighting to 10%, however sometimes when I move the watch seems to light up the room. I'm just about used to it now, but still a bit of a bother. This is even while I've set it to DND or "do not disturb" mode.
Overall, if you want a watch that does it all, choose the Vivoactive 3! I have had this watch for 2 months now and am still VERY happy I chose it! :-)
I have also been incorporating other activities such as yoga, spin and strength training. While I do really enjoy using the 235 the lack of additional work out features was very frustrating for me personally. I took a chance on this watch and must say that I am very pleased as I am very picky.
This watch is very sleek and visually appealing but at the same time very easy to use. You can customize the data screens to each workout to your specific needs or wants just like the 235.
You must remember that no watch will ever be perfect but when set up correctly this is a really great watch and I would highly recommend it.
I previously had a Fitbit Charge HR, which was cheaper and did a reasonable job of tracking sleep and heart rate, but didn't offer much beyond the basics, and besides, it looked kind of clunky and was starting to fall apart. What I was hoping to find was a GPS HR tracker that looked good enough to wear with a suit, that offered better running metrics and offered a bit more in the way of smartwatch features without being too pricey.
In these respects, the Vivoactive 3 does fit the bill. It looks great (most people don't even notice that it's digital, much less that it's a running watch), it tracks my runs and other activities well and - as far as I can tell - it offers all the functionality of the more expensive Forerunner 235 and most of the features of the still-more expensive Fenix 5. Plus new features like stress measurement and GaminPay!
Well... that's all more or less true. But. For one thing GarminPay isn't set up yet and even when it is, it won't work with every bank and at every retailer. I don't think I'd actually use it much even if it was functioning, but given that it isn't, it can't really be viewed as an improvement, and if it's important to you to be able to pay with your watch, the Fitbit Ionic or Apple watch are probably safer choices. Other options in the same price range mostly offer built-in music storage which the Vivoactive does not. Also, the battery life is advertised as being 7 days - this may be true if bluetooth is off and you don't use the watch at all, but as far as the real world is concerned, 7 days is kind of a fiction. If you don't switch bluetooth off, it will last about 24 hours. If you do, you need to go in and switch it on every time you want to sync the watch (not actually a big task, but still irritating). At the moment I'm getting about 4 days out of each charge with moderate use. And stress measurement? Some reviews have claimed that this is subjectively accurate, but that hasn't been my experience. Every time I get up to make a cup of tea, the resulting increase in heart rate is listed as 'med' or 'high' stress. And I'm British, so that's quite a lot of the day. If I'm sitting down and writing a difficult e-mail or giving a presentation, it generally shows low stress. Perhaps it needs to learn a bit more (it has now managed to cut out any walking of more than a few minutes), but so far it's been pretty wildly off.
There are other irritations - sleep tracking has failed on 4 of the 10 days, the side swipe button (which be useful in winter with gloves but otherwise isn't much use) can be triggered by loose clothing and start skipping through menus and actually reset the time once, the 'move' reminders can be irritating. Even features I expected to be top notch have struggled at times - for example I did a run yesterday starting up 6th avenue in midtown New York, and the GPS showed me going along 6 1/2th avenue (yes, that is a real thing). Sure, I was weaving around tourists, but the difference is about 200ft and it really is supposed to be more accurate than that. To be fair, it was on target the rest of the way and has been close enough on my other runs.
As mentioned above, some of its competitors seem to offer more functions for the non-runner. An Apple watch, Samsung or Fitbit will offer more apps, built-in music storage and in some cases personal coaching sessions which are lacking from the Vivoactive 3 (although you can create workout plans on Garmin Connect and put them on the watch). Personally, I use a phone for most apps, don't have wireless headphones and don't need in-watch coaching. Similarly, the more expensive garmin products offer more advanced metrics, more accurate GPS, open swimming tracking, etc and so offer more for the more serious athlete.
Having said all of that, this is still a good watch and some of its flaws will be fixed in time as patches are released, more apps become available on Connect IQ, etc. It is easy to use as a regular watch, it's light and comfortable and looks great. It offers most of the features of the Fenix 5 at half the cost, and all the fitness features you'd find on anything cheaper. You can reply to text notification while out jogging (although only with a standard reply) and might one day be able to buy your post-run rehydration with Garmin Pay. I can't resist using it to check the weather at every opportunity, and I've always wanted a watch with an in-built compass. It is leagues ahead of the Fitbit I used to own, although Fitbits have moved on in that time too.
So in conclusion, it is a good watch that has its flaws and is surrounded by competitors with potentially superior features. If you are a serious runnner/ cyclist/ triathlete, etc you probably need a greater range of metrics and activity apps (although the Vivoactive 3 can be paired with accessories quite easily to cover some of this data). If you are into fitness more generally and want something to track gym/ cardio sessions, the new Fitbit probably has you covered and offers a little bit more for the same price. But if you exercise outdoors at a casual to intermediate level and want a watch that covers all your fitness needs while looking great in the office and future-proofing you with smartwatch capabilities, the Vivoactive 3 is the watch for you.

Es más de lo que esperaba en cuanto a funciones, es muy completo. Requieres una app adicional para cambiar imágenes de fondo pero esta excelente. La app de almacenamiento de datos es buena, para principiantes algo confuso (como cualquier nueva tecnología) pero es buena. Una vez visto los videos de uso puedes entender fácilmente.
La función de cámara no es compatible con iphone, sólo Android.
Viene precargado y esa batería ha durado tres días.
Mi muñeca es delgada (4.5cm) y no se ve grande. Es muy ligero.
Se pueden cambiar el extensible, hay micas para proteger la pantalla (aquí mismo en amazon, las venden por separado).
Es buena la sensibilidad de la pantalla táctil.
SI ES INDISPENSABLE LEER LOS INSTRUCTIVOS para disfrutar el producto al 100%. Recomiendan no exponerlos a altas temperaturas para la duración correcta de las baterías.
Update: June 15, this watch has become very reliable long lasting battery depending on what you use it for.. I don't track any of my exercise so the battery will last me 7 to 8 days before charging. I have set all of my important apps to notify me through my watch which again has become very reliable. My favourite part about the watch as in my previous post is the customisation of as many text message responses as I would like. It would be nice to see Garmin create a watch that has nicer watch faces similar to the Samsung Galaxy or the Fitbit.
