Pricing and availability

The Garmin Vivoactive 3 is will ship on the 5th October 2017 at a price starting at £279.99 / $299 but I suspect the release will happen maybe in mid-October to try and compete with the recently announced Fitbit Ionic Smartwatch. The Garmin Vivoactive 3 is a good buy and it gives you a lot of your money for a wearable with these features

Garmin Pay

The Garmin Vivoactive 3 is the first fitness wearable to include contactless pay called Garmin Pay. This is similar to Apple Pay and works using a NFC chip that. In the UK payments can be made up to £30 using this method and I often use it to make quick payments for items that I need to buy for convenience.
