Leave your phone and your worries behind with vívoactive 3 Music. Built for the active lifestyle, this GPS smartwatch connects with Verizon to let you keep your peace of mind, download songs on the go and text right from your wrist.
Connected by the Power of Verizon
With vívoactive 3 Music, leaving your phone at home can be a choice instead of a cause for panic. No matter your primary phone carrier, you can get a low-cost subscription to Verizon’s reliable network that gives you access to phone-free texting, music downloads and safety features.
No phone? No worries.
Connecting your vívoactive 3 Music smartwatch with Verizon lets you take advantage of phone-free texting, and safety and tracking features. For example, if anything should happen, hold the watch’s button until the watch vibrates three times to activate the assistance feature, which discreetly sends a message with your real-time location to your preloaded emergency contacts. That way, help has an easier time finding you. The watch also has incident detection, which automatically sends a message with your real-time location to your preloaded emergency contacts if an incident is detected during an outdoor walk, run or bike activity. Or let friends and family follow your activities in real time whenever you like by simply initiating the LiveTrack feature from the watch. And that’s not all. You can even initiate, receive and respond to text messages on your watch — with no phone required.
Your Watch, Your Music
With storage for up to 500 songs, this watch puts the “beat” in your daily mission to beat yesterday. Use your Verizon connection to download your favorite songs from select music services if you have a premium subscription — phone-free — even when you’re on the go. Just download your favorite music service app from the Connect IQ™ Store, and sync. Then queue up those songs for easy listening through headphones (sold separately) enabled with BLUETOOTH technology.
Pay Your Way
vívoactive 3 Music features Garmin Pay, which lets you pay for purchases with your watch. Use it just about anywhere you can tap your card to pay. So you can leave your wallet behind without missing out on that post-run caffé latte. Just tap and go.
Make It Yours
This watch is also compatible with our Connect IQ Store, where you can download watch faces, widgets and apps that transform this smartwatch into your watch. Keep tabs on when your Uber is arriving, turn on your lights at home with the SmartThings app, and even use the AccuWeather MinuteCast app to find out when the rain will start.
Play More Sports
With more than 15 preloaded sports apps, finding a fun way to stay active is easy. Hit the golf course, go for a bike ride, take a yoga class, or even try your hand at stand-up paddle boarding. When you head outside, built-in GPS lets the watch track the details of your chosen activity — with no phone connection required. From snowboarding to pool swimming and at least a dozen other options in between, this watch is the perfect playmate.
Fits You and All You Do
Not only is this smartwatch safe for swimming and showering, its Garmin Chroma Display™ is easy to read — even in direct sunlight — and housed under extra-durable Corning® Gorilla® Glass 3. Comfortable, convenient and easy to see — this watch just fits.
Download and Create Workouts
Keep your workout schedule fresh. Choose from preloaded ones, or create your own custom running, cycling, cardio or strength workouts, and download them to your watch. Then, your smartwatch will keep track of the exercises, reps, sets and rest time for you.
Daily Fitness, Wellness and Sleep Tracking
With help from Elevate wrist-based heart rate technology, vívoactive 3 Music lets you monitor key aspects of your fitness and wellness to show how your body responds under various circumstances. For example, it’s able to estimate your VO2 max and fitness age, important indicators of your physical fitness that can often improve over time with regular exercise. It also tracks your heart rate variability (HRV), which is used to calculate and track your stress level. It can make you aware when physical or emotional sources cause your stress level to rise so you can find a way to relieve the pressure. And advanced sleep monitoring1 gives you a better idea of how many winks you’re getting by tracking how long you spend in light, deep and REM stages of sleep.
Share and Compete
Syncing your activities to Garmin Connect™ is for more than just storing your data. Garmin Connect is a thriving online community where people on the go can connect and compete by joining challenges, encourage each other’s successes and even share their triumphs via social media. Garmin Connect is free and available on the web or on your smartphone.
