Garmin Vivoactive 3 Music First Look

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 today in Black/Stainless steel only and costs $300. The same is true of the life when using Global Positioning System with music, which Garmin places around five hours - the same as with the Forerunner 645 Music, which we found to be on the money.

The Vivoactive 3 Music has a pretty complete set of features: onboard storage for 500 songs, although they have to be sideloaded from a computer, much like the Fitbit Ionic and Versa; iHeartRadio and upcoming Deezer support for music synced from a phone; Garmin Pay contactless payments; Global Positioning System; and up to a seven-day battery life (5 hours with Global Positioning System on).

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. Garmin says that users are able to download offline music playlists from iHeartRadio All Access, with support for Deezer coming soon. The Vivoactive 3 Music offers enough storage to hold about 500 songs, and you can connect Bluetooth headphones to the device to listen without your phone. You can also check AccuWeather before you leave and track when your Lyft and Uber ride arrives.

Reported Killed in Missile Attack in Saudi Arabia
As the last port controlled by the northern rebels, it is the lone source of humanitarian aid for millions across northern Yemen. Malnutrition, cholera and other diseases have killed or sickened thousands of civilians over the years.

The Vivoactive 3 Music also boasts Garmin Pay, just as its predecessor did. The non-music vivoactive 3 watch has dropped to $250.

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.

Namely, up to 7 days in "smartwatch mode", 13 hours with the built-in Global Positioning System chip turned on, and around 5 hours in "GPS mode" with music. This new version, dubbed the Vivoactive 3 Music, is pretty much the same as the original that debuted previous year, but with one key difference: it comes with onboard storage you can fill up with music.

Still, if you're into athletic activities, it's hard to compete against this bad boy at $300.
