Subtle, Stylish and Smart
Your sense of style is uniquely you. Let vívosmart 3 complement that style without trying to overshadow it. Featuring a slim, inconspicuous band, vívosmart 3 is as hip as anything in your closet. Even better, it’s a master of subtlety. The tracker’s hidden display is only visible when you want it to be. When you’re not using it, it disappears into the device. It’s the perfect companion for the office, the gym, the pool and everywhere in between.
Daily Fitness Monitoring
Thanks to Elevate wrist-based heart rate technology¹, vívosmart 3 activity tracker is full of great features that let you get a better idea of your current fitness level. For example, it’s our first dedicated activity tracker to offer VO2 max estimate. It can even estimate your fitness age, which you may be able to decrease over time with hard work and regular exercise.
vívosmart 3 tracks heart rate variability (HRV), which is used to calculate and display your stress level. You can look at this graph right on your device anytime you’re sitting or at rest. When the level starts to move up, it indicates that your stress is getting higher. What causes this? Any number of physical or emotional external sources. vívosmart 3 helps you recognize when this is happening so you can find a way to relieve the stress.
Your Personal Rep Counter
Gym rats, rejoice. We’re adding a companion to your workout — or more specifically, a companion that’s great at keeping count. When you start a strength training activity on vívosmart 3, the device will capture your exercises, reps and sets along with your work and rest times so you can leave the notebook at home. That data gets pushed to Garmin Connect during your next sync so you can review your workout in even greater detail.
Smart Notifications and Smarter Features
To help keep up with your busy lifestyle, you can view emails, text messages and social network notifications right on your wrist. Other features that help you stay linked with life include automatic uploads to Garmin Connect and compatibility with TrueUp, which lets you synchronize multiple activity trackers. The ability to find your phone and music controls are also available right at the wrist.

CONS: Display can be hard to see in direct sunlight. The build quality, specifically the strap, is not well made. App can sometimes be finicky to connect via bluetooth and takes a few attempts to connect. Battery life is average. Usually lasts 4 days with 1 hr of exercise use each day before needing to recharge.
Purchased in May 2017. I pretty much wore it everyday and would only remove when showering, lifting weights since I didn't want to damage it on a bar, or needing to recharge battery. Never dropped, nor do I participate in full contact sports. I mainly jog, walk and occasionally lift weights 3 to 4x a week.
About 5 months in I noticed one day while connecting the tracker to the charger to recharge, the strap had become loose and was close to falling off completely. I included a picture to show what I am talking about. This was on both ends. I started to look online into buying a replacement strap when I discovered that this particular model of Garmin's activity trackers did not have that option.
I contacted Garmin directly and they confirmed that the strap on the Vivosmart 3 was indeed not interchangeable. My unit was still under warranty and they promptly sent me a replacement unit after I sent my unit back. I did have to pay for the shipping cost to send it them but they sent overnight my replacement as soon as they received my old unit, free of charge.
It's now almost 2 months in with the replacement unit and the strap is again starting to show signs of it falling apart. Unfortunately Garmin told me that the warranty is only good for 1 replacement and there is nothing they can do. I will be trying to fix it with some glue and hope it keeps it together. Aside from the strap issues, I do like the tracker. App is easy to use and the functionality of the device is great. I would easily have given 5 stars if not for the strap problems.
UPDATE: March 2018, The glue attempt did not last. The strap continued deteriorating and finally got so bad that I could no longer wear it. I will hesitate buying Garmin products in the future.
Great device poor design with the band. Don't BUY!
- After around 3 months of normal use the loop that closes the strap broke
- the strap itself is very fragile, it broke without any major accident/force
- THERE IS NO REPLACEMENT STRAP.. just search Amazon and Google
- So you end up with a useless watch missing a US$ 1 loop or a US$ 5 strap that don't exist
- To repair you have to pay 1/3 of the product value to Garmin and send them the watch
I cannot recommend a product that, despite its pros, became useless unless I pay 1/3 of its value for a US$ 1 repair...
And trust me... the strap is fragile and WILL break sooner than you think with normal use.
1. This band is extremely slim for a fitness tracker
2. If you are looking for a minimalist tracker that is subtle, then this might be your ticket. If you want custom straps and flashy silver parts, move along and go take a look at fitbit. I work in IT, but prefer subtle devices that don't scream "gadget"
My Brother uses the Fitbit Alta HR and my concern was that the height of the FitBit is still quite tall, even if its only a few milimeters... this feels more compact and less likely to snag on doors, walls, bags, bed-sheets.
Screen responsiveness - I have medium to large fingers and the screen seems to respond perfectly, therefore I cannot comment on the problems with screen not detecting taps or swipes for smaller fingers.
Only the double tap to wake feature is not intuitive initially, it has to be a tap over the flat part that is the screen, which is not a problem once you've worn it for more than 8 hours - this is simply because the band looks continuous when the screen is off :)
+ The portrait or landscape selection of display is neat (depending on your activity this will become more useful)
+ Waterproof - this band doesn't attract fingerprints, but does attract fuzz, being able to rinse it off whilst washing my hands is a win.
+ App is easy to configure what features you want the phone to display or exclude.
+ If this band didn't have a clasp, I belive people wouldn't easily identify it as a fitness tracker.
Stress monitor is pretty interesting, may take some time to train and figure our what your natural resting heart rate is.
- The OLED screen is encased in a waterproof layer that I think is the cause for the "hazy" view of the screen. This isn't a deal-breaker, I prefer to use the app to track my results, I'm not a constant peeper. I think the haze removes about 10% of clarity, so not a major issue for waterproof tracking.
- When paired with my Android, using the music control feature on my Vivosmart 3, I can only pause the music and not navigate to previous or next track (the taps do not register), but the play/pause works perfectly fine. Note: I am using Apple Music on Android.
- Comfort - this thing scores an 8.5/10 for comfort when awake. When using it to sleep its a little bit snug and you may want to loosen it a bit (this is always going to be a challenge with 24/7 tracking) - I still recommend it, in case that wasn't clear.
