Garmin’s do-it-all smartwatch, the Vivoactive 3 Music is now available in India. Priced at Rs 25,990, the wearable comes with nearly every feature you’d want including the ability to listen to music and track your runs without a phone connection. The Vivoactive 3 Music will be sold through several offline as well as online channels such as Amazon, Flipkart, and more.
The Vivoactive 3 Music’s biggest highlight is the integrated music feature that lets you store up to 500 tracks on the watch. You can listen to these through Bluetooth headphones with no smartphone intervention whatsoever. The songs can either offloaded from a few compatible music streaming services or manually through a computer. In addition, the watch also has GPS which allows it to track various exercises on its own. On a single charge, the Vivoactive 3 Music can last a week in smartwatch mode, 13 hours in GPS training mode, and 5 hours in GPS mode with music playback.
Of course, it comes with all the usual smartwatch features such as a swim-safe build thanks to a 5ATM water rating, notification access, and is compatible with an app store where you can download new watch faces. The watch even has a heart rate scanner that can measure your VO2 max fitness level as well. There’s a 1.2-inch (240×240 pixels) touchscreen which makes use of a rotating bezel for input.
Commenting further on the launch, Mr. Ali Rizvi, National Sales Manager Garmin India said, “Garmin has launched this smartwatch with music, keeping in mind the effect and impact music plays while users are engaged in workouts, exercises or sports. It adds fun to the activity, motivates the user to exert more, and thoroughly enjoy the activity. Music with exercising is a stress buster, and the combination can help derive the maximum benefits.”
