Originally priced at $250, Garmin’s vivoactive 3 is a solid smartwatch that packs all the necessary features to make it a great alternative to more Samsung’s Gear S3 or Galaxy Watch. For a limited time, you can grab one from Amazon for 25% off, which makes it an even more appealing option for those who want something less mainstream.
The vivoactive 3 comes with built-in GPS and features Garmin pay contactless payment solution that allows users to pay for purchases with their watch. It packs more than 15 preloaded GPS and indoor sports apps, including yoga, running, swimming and more.
As far as battery life goes, Garmin claims the vivoactive 3 should offer up to 7 days of battery life in smartwatch mode, or up to 13 hours in GPS mode. The smartwatch sports a small 1.2-inch display with 240 x 240 pixels resolution and it’s waterproof (5 ATM). The smartwatch is available in multiple colors, but we noticed the black/silver model is the cheapest at the moment.
