Garmin Adds Music to Vivoactive 3 Smartwatch

Garmin Vivoactive 3 Music GPS Smartwatch With Integrated Music Launched

Garmin has clearly made music a priority with its latest wearables.

The Garmin Vivoactive 3 Music is available from today priced at $299.99, a $50 premium over the original Vivoactive 3.

After all, Garmin ensures that the Vivoactive 3 Music comes with all of the features that launched with last year's model, and the list is extensive.

From playing sports to playing your favorite songs, vívoactive 3 Music is the smartwatch for your active life.

Deezer support is also "coming soon" (for offline playlist downloads only), or you can transfer music directly from a computer to your Global Positioning System smartwatch. It's a great and sensible move for Garmin, as most people who workout with music would love to leave their smartphone at home; however, it should be noted that at launch the Vivoactive 3 Music will only work with iHeartRadio at launch. Support for Deezer is coming soon, as well. Unfortunately, if you're a subscriber to Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon Music or Google Play Music, offline listening is off the table for you (for now). Both earn their name thanks to the built-in storage for 500 songs that you can take with you on a run, no phone needed. The non-music vivoactive 3 watch has dropped to $250. Then you need to pair some sweat-proof headphones and head out.

Mainly focused on in-depth activity tracking and professional workout motivation, Garmin's robust wearable devices can do most of the things the industry-leading Apple Watch Series 3 is capable of, except for standalone voice calls.

There is some tweaking the design department with a glossier, chemically strengthened glass finish, which sees a departure change from the metallic look featured on the Vivoactive 3.

It's safe for swimming and showering, Garmin says, and features a battery life of up to seven days in smartwatch mode or five hours in Global Positioning System with music mode.
