Garmin Vivoactive 3 music specs and features
The Vivoactive 3 Music will come with music that also features on the Forerunner 645. Garmin has included 4GB of internal memory which will let you store and listen to up to 500 of your tunes, phone-free through Bluetooth headphones. The integrated music player will also work with Deezer and iHeartRadio, just like the Forerunner 645
The VA3 music has the same configuration as the none-music Vivoactive 3 mean controlling the music with the touchscreen and this could be problematic with wet hands when working out.
The Garmin Vivoactive 3 music will come with connected features including smart notifications and text replies, but these will be Android only. You get 15 preloaded sports apps, wrist-based heart rate, VO2 max, fitness age estimate, all-day stress tracking and more. I also suspect it will come with Garmin Pay, for those of you that are lucky enough to have a bank that supports it.
The new Vivoactive 3 music measures 4.3 x 4.3 x 1.3cm (H x W x D) and comes in at 38 grams. Water resistance down to depths of 50 meters.
The integration of music into the Garmin Vivoactive 3 is really the only difference between the Vivoactive 3 and the Vivoactive 3 music.
Garmin Vivoactive 3 music price
The Vivoactive 3 music will be priced at £299.99 or $329. which is around £60 more expensive than the none music version of the Vivoactive 3.
