Overview

Getting active is as easy as the Garmin vivofit 3 activity tracker.

More Information

It's an all too familiar sight. A red bar staring at you from your Garmin vivofit 3 activity tracker. Looks like it's time to get up and move. The vivofit 3 definitely is relentless in its pursuit of you meeting your daily fitness goal. But then, that's why you got it -- so you can start leading a healthier lifestyle. Add to that the helpful advice you've been getting through Garmin Connect and living healthier doesn't seem so hard.

As you've embarked on that journey, the vivofit 3 has been there to push you just that little bit extra adjusting your daily goal as you've become more active. It's what you've needed: small incremental changes. And that's beginning to pay off. You're back to the gym. Elliptical, treadmill, and stationary bike on alternating days, which the vivofit 3 can easily track thanks to Move IQ.

Why you need this:

  • Move IQ: This activity detection technology automatically recognizes changes in movement, allowing you to go from using an elliptical to biking to swimming without needing to start and stop the tracker when you change activities.
  • Activity and sleep tracking: Sensors monitor your steps during the day, distance traveled, and calories burned. At night, movements are tracked to determine sleep quality.
  • Garmin Connect: Easily view your activity data in more detail from your computer or the mobile app. Connect gets to know you, offering insights to push you harder when you need it, such as cues to move if you're not on pace to meet your goals and shout outs when you hit milestones. Connect also delivers health tips from experts.
  • Wireless connectivity: ANT+ technology connects with a compatible smartphone, syncing your activity data with Garmin Connect.
  • Activity reminders: vivofit3 reminds you to get up and move after an hour of inactivity. A red bar appears on the display, growing every 15 minutes until you reset it by walking for a couple of minutes.
  • Daily goals: vivofit3 sets an attainable daily goal for you based on your current activity levels, adjusting the goal as your activity levels improve.
  • Personalize: With selectable watch faces, you can customize the vivofit 3 to match your style. Plus, the display is backlit for easy reading.
  • Water resistance: 5ATM/50-metre water rating means you can wear the watch in the rain, in the shower, or while swimming.
  • Long battery life: A single CR1632 coin cell battery keeps the vivofit 3 going for over 1 year, so you won't need to worry about charging this tracker day to day.

First Tracker Owned, I Like It

I've had the Vivofit 3 for almost a month now. I did some research on this product before buying it. There were a handful of reviews that stated issues with syncing to the app on both Apple and Android devices after the first initial sync. So I was kind of hesitant, but this product went on sale and comparing it to other models and brands close to the sale price, the Vivofit 3 seemed like the best decision. I to had an issues with syncing after the first initial sync to set things up. But after fidgeting with both my phone and the tracker for a little (syncing with Bluetooth off, then turning it back on, etc) it works perfectly fine now. I use it mostly to track my steps/meet goals, logging my speed walking/jogs and I like that it can track sleep patterns... however I usually take it off before I get to the bed just because I feel more comfortable sleeping without it on. I think it's an awesome sleek unisex design. And being my first, it's nice not worry about needing to charge it. It's comfortable and stays on pretty well. Totally recommend this for first time users if you just want basic fitness tracking. Would purchase it again, but I'd also like to eventually upgrade to something with blood pressure tracking because that's a new health concern my doc wants me to keep an eye on.

Tiny Display

The display is TINY. Much too small to be able to comfortably use the tracker especially as a watch. I cannot see the time without putting on my glasses. Will have to return.

More disappointed with Garmin App

Went skiing and it didn't track it. Lousy app too, why can't they just immitate a good app like Fitbit? If I didn't like that is waterproof and tells time would have rated it lower.

Good for the price!

Product comes as advertised. Not a basic toy but also not the top of the line. If all you're using this for is the basic fitness functions, it works fine. I've got it synced to my laptop and it works fine. Love you don't have to recharge it frequently. Band is interesting with the turn lock but it seems to work as long as you don't leave it too loose and it snags.

Excellent Activity Tracker

This tracker has been absolutely solid for me. I appreciate the fact it is waterproof unlike the fitbits and the battery life is awesome. The display is clear and I find the band quite comfortable.

Great product

Needed a new activity tracker after the band in mine fell apart, decided to try Garmin. Only had a few weeks. Really like not having to recharge every few days and don't have to worry about getting it wet. The band is nice and slim and I like the little locking feature to make sure ifthat can become undone. I haven't figured out why it randomly beeps sometimes. I do miss being able to have a silent alarm and phone notificationsystem but other than that it's been great.

Not what I expected

Having had Garmin products before (GPS for my car) I decided to go with a familiar name. However, I am quite disappointed with the Vivofit product, mostly for two reasons: 1) After setting it up with my iPhone 6, I initially was able to sync it, no problem. However, after 10 days I could not get the device to sync (it just stopped.) I have tried everything and still it will not sync (all my other devices continue to work quite nicely, it is only the vivofit I cannot get to work). 2) The wristband is a disappointment. The 'safety wheel' that you turn to secure the strap on your wrist is difficult to lock into place. I tried to wear it without using the safety wheel but the band fell off twice over a two day period. Overall a very disappointing experience.

Expensive toy

Bought as a Christmas gift for my 10 year old son and he's been having a blast with it checking out the different activities it registers. There are some snags with it such as how difficult the band is to take on and off and it doesn't register any activity when on a stationary bike. He has experimented with wearing the garmin on his ankle which seems to kind of work but is not comfortable and having to take it on and off to move it to his ankle is difficult. Overall it has been good and my son is happy to have it... glad I got it on sale!

Better than expected

I'm really quite impressed so far, the only bad thing so far is its sometimes difficult to get the band on and off since my wrist is small, but other than that its great

Good tracker

I don't know why people are hating on the vivofit 3. I really like it. The move iq works well, the stopwatch function is great and it's comfortable to wear. Honestly, it tracks all of my workouts accurately. If you want more functions, spend the money and get the vivosmart hr+. If not, you're getting a great tracker with amazing battery life for a good price. If anything, syncing isn't as smooth as other trackers, no big deal for me.

Awesome fitness tracker

Bought it 2 months ago. Have been using it everyday. Really good tracker. Love the fact that it has 1 year battery so no charging every 3 to 5 days. recommend the product!!

Acitivity Reminders

I was very excited to try this product. this was my first activity tracker and was looking forward to the benefits of being reminded to get up and move every hour. however when i did get up and walk, the activity reminder did not reset. Also it counts steps when your driving which is pointless in the pursuit of tracking your activities. not impressed will be returning this product.

Sync one time only...

Huge disappointment. Was looking forward to release of this unit due to being waterproof and not rechargable. We started in good terms. Device Pair & Sync worked fine initially (maybe 2-4 hours?). During that time the garmin connect web interface was used to enable the dual screen and enable chest heart monitor display. Both worked fine on the device itself. It was after this configuration that the Garmin Connect software would no longer Sync to completion (runs 50% then fails). Tried the usual fixes to no success. Reset Device, Reinstall software, install software on different mobile device. All same result. Initial Pair?Connect okay, then fails 50% through Sync process. Will be returning for an exchange. This device does show promise if/when functional.
